School Children Allegedly Possessed By Demons On Siquijor Island Philippines, As Priests Rush To Their Rescue. 

School Children Allegedly Possessed By Demons On Siquijor Island Philippines, As Priests Rush To Their Rescue. 

A team of priests were rushed to a school on Siquijor Island after reports that pupils were showing signs of demonic possession.

At least two priests from the Diocese of Dumaguete were on Wednesday, October 17 ministering to the affected youngsters.

Father Ronnie Ablong, parish priest of Larena town, said he was assisting Father Gerry Flores of San Juan town in saying the necessary prayers and performing other religious rites on the students.

However, he said they still could not conclude whether the incident was a result of demonic attacks or merely psychological in nature.

This will have to go through a process of evaluation so we won’t conclude yet although there are guidelines to follow to determine if this is, indeed, the work of the devil,” the 49-year old priest said.

Reports that first emerged on Monday said more than 10 students of a school on Siquijor Island showed signs of being “perturbed”, appeared to be in a trance and displayed other unusual behaviour associated with demonic attacks.

According to Fr. Ablong, he still has to determine what could have triggered the incident, such as perhaps engaging in occult practices like the “Spirit of the Glass”.

Once people are engaged in the occult, there are now opening that would make them vulnerable to demonic attacks,” he explained.

Other triggering events include a person “living a sinful life and the absence of prayer in their lives”, he added.

Siquijor Island has long been associated with folklore and witchcraft, a connection that tourist chiefs have been keen to promote in recent years. 

Not only on Siquijor

However, belief in demonic possession remains widespread across the Philippines. 

In July, two schools on Cebu Island were closed due to outbreaks of demonic possession within days of each other. The hysteria that hit the schools in Danao City and Dalaguete Town were prompted after pupils claimed to have seen a mysterious “black figure”.

In June, two other Cebu schools were forced to close after outbreaks of “mass hysteria” among pupils struck within hours of one another.

The phenomenon was first reported at Ronda National High School when 20 students became hysterical after seeing “the ghost of a child”.

Police officers were sent to the school and the affected children were taken to a local church.

Then, just hours later, 19 pupils of Colawin National High School in Argao town also succumbed to a similar outbreak.

The Argao Municipal Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office deployed a team to the school to respond to the situation.

Some of the affected students were sent to Isidro Kintanar Memorial Hospital, while others were taken to a nearby church.

According to a report on dyAB TeleRadyo Cebu, school officials said the outbreak of hysterical behaviour was somehow related to a decision to “replace an axed mango tree”.

In February, a school in Palawan was forced to cancel lessons after 15 students were supposedly possessed by evil spirits.

According to a report on GMA News, the affected students were “rushed” to a Catholic church after the supernatural outbreak.

The school’s principal, Vicente Tamanyo, told the broadcaster that the incident occurred after two students claimed to see the spirit of a woman, covered in blood.

According to eyewitnesses, the possessed students were heard to speak a “strange language” and were said to display “freakish strength”.

The affected youngsters were taken to a nearby church for prayers before being sent home.

Exorcists And Catholics Respond To Witches Planned Curse Against Judge Kavanaugh

Exorcists And Catholics Respond To Witches Planned Curse Against Judge Kavanaugh

Exorcist and Catholics Respond to Curse Against Kavanaugh.

Word is spreading to pray and fast, not just for the protection of Kavanaugh, but for those who wish him harm.

Catholics and exorcists are responding to the news that a curse on the newest U.S. Supreme Court Justice is planned for Saturday Oct. 20 at Catland Books, a “metaphysical boutique and occult bookshop” in Brooklyn, New York. He will be the main focus, at the “Ritual to Hex Brett Kavanaugh” but others will also be targeted. For three hours, starting at 7 p.m., “all rapists and the patriarchy which emboldens, rewards and protects them” will be cursed.

This is not the first cursing event for Catland Books. Last year, the bookstore hosted three hexes on President Donald Trump. Co-owner of the bookshop and event organizer Dakota Bracciale, claims witches at the event will “make Kavanaugh suffer.” Tickets were available through Eventbrite sold out quickly. 

After saying the St. Michael prayer, I called the bookstore and learned that 60 people will attend. The ticket holders will bring their “rage and axes to grind,” as instructed by the event page. Activities will include a second ritual called, “The Rites of the Scorned One” to “validate, affirm, uphold, and support those of us who have been wronged and who refuse to be silent any longer.”

Silent? Hardly. Pro-abortion groups have loudly denounced the Catholic, pro-life, Kavanaugh as “serious threat” to “women’s right” to abortion, fearing he will protect the life of unborn babies. It’s clear how the sides of good and evil line up.

Exorcist Response

As a response to the event, Father Gary Thomas, the exorcist for the Diocese of San Jose, California, is offering Mass for Kavanaugh on Thursday and Saturday. His training in Rome was the subject of the 2010 book The Rite: The Making of a Modern Exorcist that was made into a movie in 2011.

I contacted him for his reaction to the announcement. “I’m appalled” he said. “I sent this to a load of exorcists yesterday and their reaction was similar to mine. That shows this is not something that is make believe.”

In the 12 years since becoming an exorcist, Father Thomas said that he has witnessed people in the satanic world becoming bolder. “They are more confident that the general public will be more accepting of the demonic,” he said. By contrast, Father Thomas noted that throughout history, satanic groups have been secretive, but now they are making it pubic in the name of freedom of religion. “This is a conjuring of evil—not about free speech,” he said. “Conjuring up personified evil does not fall under free speech. Satanic cults often commit crimes; they murder and sexually abuse everyone it their cult.”

Father Thomas said that those involved in the curse on Kavanaugh clearly believe in the power of personified evil. “They are going to direct the evil to have a permanently adverse effect on the Supreme Court justice,” he said.

“When curses are directed at people in a state of grace, they have little or no effect,” Father Thomas said. Otherwise, he has witnessed harm come upon people such as physical illness, psychosis, depression and having demons attach to them. Curses sometimes involve a blood sacrifice either through an animal or a human being, such as an aborted baby, according to him. However, there is no information about a blood sacrifice one way or the other for the Saturday event.

The decision to do this against a Supreme Court justice is a heinous act and says a lot about the character of these people that should not be underestimated or dismissed,” he said. “These are real evil people.”

Catholics Respond

Word is spreading to pray and fast, not just for the protection of Kavanaugh, but for those who wish him harm. A manager at a Catholic apostolate was inspired to fast and pray the Rosary for three days and to give alms for this intention, and word has been spreading quickly.

She asks that “God will have mercy on those involved, that He will give everyone the grace of faith and repentance, and that He will grant spiritual protection to Brett Kavanaugh.” She said they are giving alms because, “St. Augustine said that fasting and almsgiving are the wings with which ‘our prayers fly safely and are more easily carried to Heaven, where Christ our Peace has preceded us.’”

On Facebook’s events page announcing the occult gather, both supporters and detractors are commenting. Many Christians are spreading the word on their own to pray and fast against this curse. Here are two posts.

Irene announced: “WE MUST PRAY AND FAST ON OCTOBER 20TH TO COMBAT THE WITCHES HEX ON JUDGE KAVANAUGH. A portion of their proceeds goes directly to Planned Parenthood. We already know many abortion doctors are witches, so this is no surprise. God will prevail, but each of us MUST do our part in this spiritual warfare!!”

Richard posted: “The war is rising. October 20 is also the commencement of our MAHA [Make America Holy Again] Spiritual campaign. Get. Battle. Ready! I’M GOING IN!

Princess Alexandra Of Hanover Has Been Removed From The British Line Of Succession After Converting To Catholicism. 

Princess Alexandra Of Hanover Has Been Removed From The British Line Of Succession After Converting To Catholicism. 

Princess Alexandra of Hanover has been removed from the British line of succession according to Point de Vue-magazine.

The 19-year-old princess is the daughter of Prince Ernst August of Hanover and Princess Caroline of Monaco. The Princess has recently become a member of the Catholic Church and this is the reason she has been removed from the British line of succession. However, she remains the 12th in the line of succession to the Monegasque throne.

Princess Alexandra of Hanover is the only child of Prince Ernst August of Hanover and Princess Caroline of Monaco. She was born on July 20, 1999, at Vöcklabruck, in Upper Austria. Alexandra is the only one of Princess Caroline’s four children who bear any royal style or title.

She was christened as a Lutheran as the rest of the family on 19 September 1999 by Horst Hirschler, the Landesbischof of the Evangelical-Lutheran Church of Hanover, in a ceremony at her father’s hunting lodge Auerbach.

Her godparents are her paternal aunt Alexandra, Princess of Leiningen, maternal half-sister Charlotte Casiraghi, Ulrike Ulmschneider, Maryam Sachs, Virginia Gallico, George Condo, and Eric Maier.

Princess Caroline, her mother, has always been a Catholic. Now, the Princess has decided to leave her Lutheran faith and become a Catholic, as her mother is.

Princess Alexandra’s maternal uncle is Albert II, the sovereign of Monaco. She is a granddaughter of the American actress Grace Kelly and on her father’s side, she is a descendant of both Queen Victoria of Great Britain and Emperor Wilhelm II of Germany.

The British succession-law were changed in 2011 with the Perth Agreement. However the ban on Catholics and other non-Protestants becoming sovereign and the requirement for the sovereign to be in communion with the Church of England remained.

The Seven In Heaven: Meet The New Saints To Be Canonized In A Few Hours 

The Seven In Heaven: Meet The New Saints To Be Canonized In A Few Hours 

On Sunday 14 October, just a few hours from now, Pope Francis will officially recognize seven new saints of the Catholic Church.

Below are brief biographies on each of their lives, as well as photos of each saint’s banner currently on display at the Vatican.

Blessed Pope Paul VI

Born Giovanni Battista Montini in 1897 and ordained a priest in 1920, he did graduate studies in literature, philosophy, and canon law in Rome before beginning to work for the Vatican Secretariat of State. In 1954, he was named Archbishop of Milan, and in 1958 was made a Cardinal by Pope John XXIII. As a Cardinal, he helped to arrange the Second Vatican Council and chose to continue the council after he became Pope.

Montini was elected as Pope Paul VI in 1963 at age 65, not long after the start of the second Vatican Council. This was a difficult time for the Church and for the world, as the “Sexual Revolution” was in full swing and the struggle for civil rights in the United States in particular was at its peak. Paul VI is perhaps most noted for his 1968 encyclical Humanae Vitae, which served as the Church’s official rebuke to artificial contraception, prohibiting its use.

Paul VI died in 1978 and Pope Francis beatified him in 2014. 

 

Blessed Oscar Romero


Born in 1917 in El Salvador, Romero was auxiliary bishop of San Salvador for four years before being elevated to Archbishop in 1977. He was an outspoken defender of the rights of the poor in El Salvador, who were being terrorized by right-wing military death squads mainly because of protests over the extreme economic inequality in the country in the 20th century.

His weekly homilies, broadcast across the country on radio, were a galvanizing force for the country’s poor as well as a reliable source of news. In addition to speaking out against the government’s actions El Salvador, he also criticized the US government for backing the military junta that seized El Salvador in 1979, and even wrote to Jimmy Carter in February 1980 asking him to stop supporting the repressive regime.

In March 1980, Romero was assassinated, likely by a right-wing death squad, while celebrating Mass.

Pope Francis beatified Romero in 2015.


Blessed Vincent Romano

Born in 1751 and ordained a priest in 1775, Romano had studied the writings of St. Alphonsus de Liguori and developed a devotion to the Blessed Sacrament. He spent his whole life as a priest in Torre del Greco and was known for his simple ways and his care for orphans. He worked to rebuild his parish, often with his bare hands, after the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 1794. He died in December 1831 of pneumonia and was beatified by Paul VI in 1963.

Blessed Francesco Spinelli

Born in Milan in 1853, Spinelli entered the seminary and was ordained a priest in 1875. He began his apostolate educating the poor and also served as a seminary professor, spiritual director, and counselor for several women’s religious communities. In 1882, Fr. Spinelli met Caterina Comensoli, with whom he would found the Institute of the Adorers of the Blessed Sacrament. The sisters dedicated themselves to Eucharistic adoration day and night, which inspired their service to the poor and suffering.

He died in 1913. Today his institute has around 250 communities in Italy, Congo, Senegal, Cameroon, Colombia, and Argentina. Their ministries include caring for people with HIV, orphans, drug addicts, and prisoners.

St. John Paul II beatified him in 1992.

Blessed Nunzio Sulprizio

Born in Pescosansonesco, Italy in 1817, Sulprizio lost both of his parents at age six and was brought up by an uncle who exploited him for hard labor. Fatigued and often given dangerous assignments, he developed gangrene and eventually lost his leg. Despite his tremendous suffering, he would reportedly make statements such as: “Jesus suffered a lot for me. Why should I not suffer for Him? I would die in order to convert even one sinner.”

He recovered from the gangrene and dedicated himself to helping other patients before his health deteriorated again. Sulprizio died of bone cancer in 1836, when he was only 19 years old.

Pope Paul VI beatified him in 1963.

Blessed Nazaria Ignacia March Mesa

Born in 1889 in Madrid, Spain, Nazaria was the fourth of 18 children. Growing up, her family was indifferent and sometimes even hostile to her desire to enter religious life, but later she led several family members back to the Church when she entered the Franciscan Third Order. Her family moved to Mexico in 1904, and Nazarie met sisters of the Institute of Sisters of the Abandoned Elders, who inspired her to join their order. In 1915, she chose to take perpetual vows with the order in Mexico City and was assigned to a hospice in Oruro, Bolivia for 12 years.

Beginning in 1920, she felt a call to found a new order dedicated to missionary work. In June 1925, she founded the Pontifical Crusade, later renamed the Congregation of the Missionary Crusaders of the Church, with the mission to catechize children and adults, support the work of priests, conduct missions, and to print and distribute short religious tracts. Many opposed her work, but Nazaria pressed on. Her order cared for soldiers on both sides of the 1932-35 war between Paraguay and Bolivia, and she herself survived persecutions in Spain during the Spanish Civil war. She died in July 1943, and four years later Pope Pius XII finally granted papal approval to the Congregation of the Missionary Crusaders of the Church, which by that time had spread throughout South America and begun work in Portugal, Spain, France, Italy and Cameroon.

Pope John Paul II beatified her in 1992.


Blessed Maria Katharina Kasper

Born in Dembach, Germany in 1820 as Catherine Kasper, she attended very little school because of poor health. Despite this, she began to help the poor, the abandoned, and the sick at a young age. Her mother taught her household chores, as well as how to spin and weave fabric. After her father died when she was 21, Catherine worked the land as a farm hand for about 10 cents a day. Her helpfulness toward others attracted other women to her, and she felt a call to the religious life, but knew she needed to stay and support her mother, who was in poor health.

After her mother died, Catherine started, with the approval of the bishop of Limburg, Germany, a small house with several friends who also felt the call. In 1851 she and four other women officially took vows of poverty, chastity, and obedience and formed the Poor Handmaids of Jesus Christ. Catherine, known in the religious community as Mother Mary, served five consecutive terms as superior of the house and continued to work with novices and to open houses for their order all over the world. Today there are 690 sisters in 104 houses in Germany, the Netherlands, the United States, Mexico and India.

She died of a heart attack in February 1898, and Pope Paul VI beatified her in 1978.
