A local Catholic priest raised concern over the spread of so-called “satanic rosaries” many of which are being turned over to them by Catholic faithfuls for destruction.
Fr. Jasper Lahan reported that a housewife went to the Immaculate Concepcion Parish on Tuesday to ask them to dispose a strange-looking rosary that she had found in her home. The woman, whom he did not identify, had also claimed that the rosary had been bringing her bad luck.
“Marami na ang nagturn-over nito sa amin at marami na rin kaming sinunog,” Fr. Lahan said.
He added that the housewife was alarmed upon seeing a similar rosary featured in a TV news broadcast about the spread of demonic rosaries.
“Hindi naman talaga niya rosary ‘yun. Ang sabi ay naiwan lang talaga ‘yun sa bahay nila. Matagal na raw ‘yun doon. Nung siya ay naglilinis nakita niya, tapos naalala niya ‘yung mga flash news sa TV patungkol nga doon,” said Fr. Jasper Lahan, parish priest in Immaculate Concepcion.
Fr. Lahan said they made sure to destroy the suspected satanic rosaries as soon as they are surrendered to them, adding that it could trigger incidents of demonic possessions.
He added that those who have approached them for help had common complaints of having been affected by bad luck.
“Ang nabanggit nila ay talagang inabot daw sila ng kamalasan sa kanilang bahay tapos sila ay nagkakaroon daw ng hindi maintindihang mga sakit which is sunod-sunod na nangyayari,” he said.
Fr. Lahan noted that the rosary has an image of the sun on each end of the cross identified with the Illuminati which has been reported active in various countries. The rosaries, he added, are usually made of plastic and is even sold on sidewalks for P20 each.
“Matagal na ‘yan. Naalala ko nakakita ako niyan three years ago. Ibig sabihin matagal nang nagsi-circulate iyan,” said Lahan.
