MANILA – An exorcist warned the public about the circulaton of Satanic rosaries and religious items in the country, during the most recent airing of the once-a-month spiritual warfare episode of the Diocese of Novaliches’ Radio Veritas segment “Hello Father 911”, on Aug. 7.
“Kapanalig listeners, be careful as the rosaries you might be using could actually be infested or cursed,” warned Fr. Ambrosio Nonato Legaspi in his personal capacity as Libera Nox chief exorcist in the Novaliches diocese.
The rosaries are those being given away by Satanists, explained the priest, particularly by the group called Iluminati. He said the rosaries have been “prayed over” by its makers, consecrating them to evil so that whoever uses it will be followed by evil spirits.
“These were made not only to be simply given away but to deceive Catholics…so that evil spirits will haunt them,” he added.
According to Diocese of Novaliches Office of Exorcism (Libera Nox) assistant case officer Philippe De Guzman, who was also present during the said episode, Satanic rosaries have odd symbols on them that are not readily noticeable 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.
De Guzman said they again confiscated such a rosary from a recent infestation case handled by Libera Nox. Similar rosaries have been confiscated from prior infestation cases but the last rosary turned out to be the reason why an evil spirit resided in the room of the client, causing disturbances in the house.
“Sometimes, there are no symbols,” said Legaspi said pertaining to what De Guzman described, “but a ritual was done on it like the one we mentioned previously about Botanica, the occult store in many places abroad like in the US where religious items are brought so they could inflict harm on others.”
He divulged how witches come to Botanica to buy gadgets and paraphernalia used in the occult or to simply buy items like religious images so that a curse or evil spirit can be attached to it before it is given away as a gift. Thus, he reminded the need to be extra careful in receiving religious items.
Exorcising religious articles
In this regard, Legaspi urged priests to bless religious items according to Catholic rituals and to exorcise them, especially if its owners have experienced paranormal occurrences.
“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.
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.
He, however, denied the need to perform a longer blessing 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.
In addition, Legaspi also warned about Masonic medals that are also in circulation. He said these look like the 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, a secret society of men, have been known and declared by the Catholic Church as anti-Christian and anti-Church.
The spiritual warfare episode of the Diocesan of Novaliches on Hello Father 911 airs every first Monday of the month from 9:30 p.m. to 11:00 p.m.
During the Aug. 7 episode whose topic is “Infestations, Padugo, and Pagaalay (Common Reasons For Infestations)”, Legaspi and his team explained that infestations occur when an evil spirit resides in an object, animal, or place due to sin, occult practices, Feng Shui, paganic rituals, violence, and murder.

Update as of September 5, 2017
In social media comments, the story about satanic rosaries has been mistakenly attributed to the CBCP. The CBCP Media Office has clarified that Fr. Ambrosio Nonato Legaspi was speaking as head of the diocese of Novaliches office of exorcism (Libera Nox) and not for the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines.
