I concur. However, it would seem that it would depend upon the experience level of the priest. A beginning priest would be aware of such procedures and tactics and only be able to initiate some of them. However, he should know when he needs to call in a priest that is more experienced with more powerful spirits. He may be able to neutralize a low level spirit or ghost but he would need a more experienced Priest(s) to deal with more powerful spirits and/or demons.

Priests should be able to gain experience dealing with the lower level spirits perhaps, to the point of being able to deal with spirits of ever-increasing power.

At least, that's my take on it without reading any of the ITL info.
