There are over 5,000 reported cases of demonic possession in the Philippines today. According to Fr. Jocis Syquia, Director of the Office of Exorcism of the Archdiocese of Manila, the numbers are increasing but there are only very few priests in the Philippines who are trained to do exorcisms.

He says more Filipino priests are now being trained to help handle the fast growing number of demonic possessions, evil infestations of homes, offices, and buildings in the country. Fr. Syquia reveals that many of the demonic possession cases stem from the dabbling in the occult of the victims including witchcraft, fortune telling, and other new age practices.



The Veronica Chronicles tackles these diabolical encounters for its Halloween Special as veteran broadcaster Veronica Baluyut-Jimenez interviews Fr. Syquia and several victims of demonic possessions. She also features a reported faith healer or  “Albularyo” who demonstrates his power against witchcraft and voodoo.
