    Exorcist sounds the alarm against satanic rosaries

    Satanists have put in circulation some rosaries devoted to evil. These were made to deceive Catholics, so that evil spirits could haunt them. Some strange symbols are stamped on the religious objects. Worshippers are warned against masonic medals as well.

    Manila (AsiaNews/CBCP) – "Kapanalig listeners, be careful as the rosaries you might be using could actually be infested or cursed,” said Fr Ambrosio Nonato Legaspi, chief exorcist of the diocese of Novaliches, in a warning to Filipino Catholics about satanic rosaries and religious objects.

    According to the head of the Office of Exorcism (Libera Nox) of the Diocese of Novaliches, a group called Illuminati have put in circulation some rosaries consecrated to evil.

    “These were made not only to be simply given away but to deceive Catholics . . . so that evil spirits will haunt them,” he explained.

    Philippe De Guzman, who helps the priest in exorcisms, said that the satanic rosaries in question often have strange symbols that cannot be identified by an untrained eye.

    Most of the time, they are made of plastic with images such as a snake wrapped around a cross, a pentagram, and a sun with rays, the symbol of the Illuminati.

    Fr Ambrosio urges his fellow priests to bless the religious objects according to traditional Catholic rites to exorcise them, especially if the owners have experienced paranormal experiences.

    These items should not only receive an “ordinary blessing where water is just sprinkled – as most priests commonly do” – but need “the Catholic ritual to frighten the demon away.”

    The priest also warns Filipino Catholics of the existence of particular Masonic medals. Apparently, these look the same as those of Our Lady of Grace, except for a compass, a Masonic symbol, located at the bottom of one of the two faces. The Church condemns Freemasonry, as anti-Christian and anti-Catholic.
