THE Diocese of Novaliches Office of Exorcism (Libera Nox) warned the public against the circulation of satanic rosaries and religious items.
According to Libera Nox chief exorcist Fr. Ambrosio Nonato Legaspi, the rosaries are those being given away by satanists, particularly by the group called Illuminati.
The rosaries have been “prayed over” by its makers, consecrating them to evil so that whoever uses it will be followed by evil spirits.
"Please be careful as the rosaries you might be using could actually be infested or cursed," the priest said in an article posted on the Catholic Bishops' Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) news website.
"These were made not only to be simply given away but to deceive Catholics…so that evil spirits will haunt them," he added.
Libera Nox assistant case officer Philippe De Guzman said these items have odd symbols on them that are not easily visible to the untrained eye. Often made of plastic, the symbols could either be a snake wrapped around the cross, a pentagram, and/or a sun with rays, an insignia of the Illuminati.
Meanwhile, Legaspi urged priests to bless religious items according to Catholic rituals and to exorcise them, especially if its owners have experienced paranormal occurrences.
He said there is no need to perform longer blessing rites to undo the evil ritual but to simply carry out one prescribed by the Catholic Church. There is no need for an exorcist to do so since the Book of Blessings of the Old Rite prayers can be said by any priest for this purpose.
Likewise, Legaspi warned about Masonic medals that are also in circulation.
He said medals look like that of Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal except that a compass, which is the insignia of the Masons, can be found at the bottom.
Masons is reportedly a secret society of men that has been known and declared by the Catholic Church as anti-Christian and anti-Church. (PNA)
