An exorcist has warned the Catholic faithful against the spread of satanic rosaries and other religious items that have been “infested or cursed.”
According to Diocese of Novaliches Office of Exorcism (Libera Nox) chief exorcist Fr. Ambrosio Nonato Legaspi, these rosaries were “prayed over” by its makers, consecrating them to evil.
“These were made not only to be simply given away but to deceive Catholics, so that evil spirits will haunt them,” Legaspi was quoted in a report of the Catholic Bishops Conference of the Philippines news site, cbcpnews.net.
These rosaries, and some Masonic medals, which are also in circulation, are distributed by Satanists, particularly a group called Illuminati, said Legaspi.
For his part, Libera Nox assistant case officer Philippe De Guzman, said satanic rosaries have odd symbols on them that are not readily noticeable to the untrained eye.
These are often made of plastic, and could either be a snake wrapped around the cross, a pentagram, or a sun with rays, an insignia of the Illuminati.
Legaspi urged priests to bless religious items according to Catholic rituals and to exorcise such items, especially if its owners have experienced paranormal occurrences.
The exorcist explained that simply sprinkling holy water on the cursed or infested item will not make the evil spirit go away, especially if the ritual carried out by the Satanists lasted for 30 minutes, making it a major curse.
“Not just a blessing, these items should be exorcised. Not just an ordinary blessing where water is just sprinkled–as most priests commonly do–but to use the Catholic ritual…that would frighten the demon away,” he emphasized.
