MANILA (AFP) – A blood-curdling scream echoes through the Roman Catholic chapel in Manila as Father Jose Francisco Syquia says a prayer of exorcism over a Satanic cult member believed to be possessed by the devil.
“It’s very painful,” the woman cries in an unearthly voice, her body contorting in an attempt to break free from the tight grasp of Syquia’s assistants. After a few minutes she falls silent, her limp body exhausted.
The case is among hundreds documented on video and kept by Syquia, who heads the Manila Archdiocese’s Office of Exorcism — the only one that exists in the Catholic nation of 94 million people.
“She would have levitated had she not been restrained,” Syquia said of the woman in the video, portions of which were shown to AFP during a rare interview at his office in the basement of a seminary in Manila.
Syquia believes he is in the frontline of the battle between good and evil on earth.
“There is a great dramatic increase of possessions right now,” said the 44-year-old priest. “More and more the demons are gaining a foothold into this society.”
While non-believers often joke about the devil, and demonic possessions are trivialized by Hollywood, Syquia insisted the torment suffered by those he had healed was real.
“I have seen scratches suddenly appearing on their skin, of inverted crosses on the forehead. These persons would be conscious at the time, and they tell me its like razor cutting from the inside of the skin,” he said.
Demons could manifest themselves in many ways and could enter the human soul through occult and New Age teachings that were becoming increasingly popular in the general community, Syquia said.

Demons are of satan and will continue to torment people until Christ comes.
I want to state it is not “Mary” whom the Catholic church believes in who can cast out demons. She was a sinner like us all.
It is Jesus Christ who died on the cross for our sins, rose, and comes very soon, who casts out demons.
You believe that there is one God. Good! Even the demons believe that—and shudder.
Demons and satan know perfectly well who is God, and even they shudder and leave when your rebuke them in the name of Jesus Christ.
Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned. And these signs will accompany those who believe: in my name they will cast out demons; they will speak in new tongues; they will pick up serpents with their hands; and if they drink any deadly poison, it will not hurt them; they will lay their hands on the sick, and they will recover.”
The above Bible verse tells us exactly what we can do, believing in Jesus Christ Our Savior, only in Him. Believe in Him, Christ who comes soon, completely trusting in him, and everything over onto his hands.
