CBCP builds the Saint Michael Center for Spiritual Liberation and Exorcism

On June 7, 2022, the Catholic Bishop Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) began the construction of the Saint Michael Center for Spiritual Liberation and Exorcism in Guadalupe, Makati City. The location will also be the Philippine Association of Catholic Exorcists (PACE) headquarters.

It will be the first of its kind in Asia, if not in the world,” said Fr. Francisco Syquia of the Archdiocese of Manila Office on Exorcism (AMOE).

CBCP alarmed at the increasing cases of demonization

An alarming “three-fold” increase in demonized, harassed or possessed. About 80 to 100 cases were too much to handle at any time. In Italy alone, there are half a million cases of demonic possession.

Of course, there are failed exorcisms, the reason training and a complete understanding of Biblical deliverance is critical.

This prompted Father Jocis Syquia to recruit new priests for the job in 2018. He is a trained exorcist in Rome. Unfortunately, not all clergies can be successful in casting demons out.

The growing need for trained exorcists

There are over 150 exorcists today in the Philippines. They also have an association, the Philippine Association of Catholic Exorcists, under the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines (CBCP).

In 2023, Netflix featured the story of Father Gabriele Amorth (1925-2016). He was an Italian Catholic priest known as the “Pope’s Exorcist,” who delivered 1,600 people from demonic possession or oppression.

Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle. Be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil; May God rebuke him, we humbly pray; And do thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Host, by the power of God, thrust into hell Satan and all evil spirits who wander through the world for the ruin of souls. Amen.
