Satanic rosaries are now being given away in the Philippines by a group called the Illuminati to deceive Catholics and let evil spirits follow innocent people, a church exorcist has warned listeners of his radio program.
The Philippines is considered the center of Christianity in Asia, with almost 80 percent of its population belonging to the Catholic faith. Same-sex marriage and abortion are illegal in the said country, which is the only state apart from the Vatican where divorce still has not been legalized, ABS-CBN reported.
Despite its strong Catholic background, the Philippines is apparently not immune to infiltrations of Satanists.
In an episode of the "Hello Father 911" Radio Veritas segment that aired on Aug. 7, Fr. Ambrosio Nonato Legaspi warned his listeners that Satanic rosaries and other religious items are now being circulated in the Philippines. The Diocese of Novaliches' Office of Exorcism (Libera Nox) chief exorcist said the items have been consecrated by Satanists, CBCP News relayed.
"Kapanalig listeners, be careful as the rosaries you might be using could actually be infested or cursed," said Fr. Legaspi in his radio program. "These were made not only to be simply given away but to deceive Catholics ... so that evil spirits will haunt them."
Libera Nox assistant case officer Philippe De Guzmman chimed in and said Satanic rosaries bear odd symbols that cannot be readily detected by the untrained eye. He said these items are often made of plastic and contain a pentagram, a snake wrapped around the cross, or the Illuminati's symbol --- a sun with rays.
In addition, De Guzman revealed that they had confiscated a Satanic rosary when they handled an exorcism and found that the item was the reason why an evil spirit lived in one of the client's rooms.
In light of the discoveries, Fr. Legaspi urged priests to bless and even exorcise religious items if the owners report paranormal experiences. He said merely sprinkling holy water will not drive the bad spirit away, especially if the Satanists had spent 30 minutes casting a curse on the item.
