CASE STORY - The Virgin Mother never despises the prayers of those who ask for her help and protection

My first case as an exorcist, where the client was referred directly to me was that of a young lady who was then at that time a graduating student in a well-known catholic university. Her case was your typical story of one who can see spirits. According to her narration, these spirits appear to her from almost anywhere such as the school girls restroom, in the classroom, in the elevator, in the faculty room, in the administration room, in a retreat house dormitory. They would appear as a child, an old lady, a bridal lady, a priest, a haggard looking man, all with hideous and angry looks. At home she would hear scratching of her glass window in the middle of the night. She would hear knocking on her window. Her door would suddenly open even if it was close and then be shut with a large angry bang.

Her story was typical for people with an open third eye and her reaction was as expected. Because she sees them, they are part of her world. Others might not see what she sees but that did not bother her much. She would greet the little boy when it appears to her; she would feel sorry for a little girl crying inside the ladies restroom at school and is not scared when it suddenly just vanishes; she scolds a spirit when it blocks her way or is on her retreat house dormitory bed. And stare back at a lady in bridal clothes with eyes fixed on her. When a spirit enters the school elevator she just looks at it but says nothing so as not to spook those around. Her friends knew about this "ability" and would at times ask her to introduce them in the event that she would see some pleasant looking spirit.

All that normalcy would be shattered when one day after their out-of-town retreat, inside the school while looking at the pictures of their retreat, she and three of her other girl classmates, suddenly screamed in terror. One felt her long hair being pulled; another her shoulders where being jumped at by a heavy weight; the other felt burning coals being heaped at her, and she was being kicked at the back.

That was how I found them four when I was suddenly called to minister to them. I found the classmate-bystanders all crying and panicking not knowing what was happening. You can see also the terror in the teachers' face who does not seem to know what to do to calm and appease the pain the victims are experiencing. There were two priests assisting me. One priest invited the students to pray the rosary, the other assisted me in praying over the four afflicted students. I started praying one at a time over each of them, doing a simple deliverance prayer coming from Fr. Jocis Syquia's  Handbook of Catholic Deliverance Prayers. It calmed them a bit; but then came a second more severe attack. I could see through the action of the victims what was happening to them; or what the spirits were doing to them. And I would say that the girls were not pretending.

The priest leading the rosary with the classmates who were there giving moral support to the afflicted saw as well the severeness of the second attack. He saw the panic-stricken faces of the others. So he encouraged them to prayer louder, but the more they prayed the more intense the pain being experienced by the victims. The spirits were retaliating hard so as to terrify those praying that they would stop. However, I had an intuition this is really what the demons wanted to do, terrify everyone and make them lose faith in prayer, in God, in the Catholic Church and in her priests. It was already 12 noon. I told the two priests to separate the victims so as to avoid hysteria. I asked the students and the teachers to continue praying the rosary outside. I needed more room to move.

It was then that I looked at the image of Our Lady of the Rosary in the office where two of the victims were. I begged the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary, to help me, to tell me what I should do. Because after praying the deliverance prayer twice on each of the victims, nothing seemed to be happening. They would calm down a bit only to be followed by an even stronger scream, a sign of being in terrible pain. I begged Our Lady in the words that I often recite before sleeping:

I fly to your patronage, O holy Mother of God; despise not my petitions in my necessities, but deliver me always from all dangers, O glorious and blessed Virgin. Deign that I may praise you, O Sacred Virgin. Give me strength against your enemies.
Suddenly, I remembered Fr. Jocis' words to me sometime ago that "when spirits do not seem to want to leave a person even after multiple exorcism or deliverance prayers, it only means that there is a bond that exists between the afflicted and the spirits." The spirits were invited in the life of the person and now the demons have claimed dominion over them.

How true indeed, the primary victim had a long standing talking relationship with spirits --she greets them, scolds them, shows these ethereal beings that she can see them. Meanwhile, her friends wanted to see also what she sees and be introduced to pleasant spirits. But there are no pleasant spirits in the realm outside of God. Those spirits that those with third eye often see are fallen angels, demons, and even if they look like human beings or human souls, they are actually demons in disguised out to deceive and harvest souls for hell. This is the reason that the primary victim can see spirits with fierce eyes staring at her. And this is the reason now they her three other classmates are being physically oppressed too by invisible forces.

I attribute this insight to Our Blessed Mother's intercession. When I was unsure of what to do and how to handle it and to question myself if I can handle it, with all these scared young people around, it was her maternal love that assured me that God will give the grace. She gave me strength and courage to face her enemies.

Thus, I went to the other room where two student-victims were. They were in pain and crying in anguish. I said to them trust God and do not despair. I then asked, "Who among you talked to the spirits?" And both denied that they have spoken to any of the spirits. But they pointed to the girl at the next room that did talk to them, she was the primary victim. So what I did was to cut the unholy soul ties, unholy consecrations, and seals between each of the two victims and the oppressing spirits. I prayed with them the Hail Mary. And when that was done, I said a deliverance prayer. By the mercy of Almighty God through the help of Our Blessed Mother, the two girls calmed down and peace returned to their faces. They were okay now.

I transferred to the other room, I asked the same question. And the other girl said she did not but that the primary victim was the one who talked to the spirits. I once more prayed and cut the unholy soul ties, unholy consecrations, and seals between her and the oppressing spirits. Then we prayed together the Haily Holy Queen. I offered a prayer of deliverance. Immediately life came back to the girl who looked so pale earlier and she was at peace. The demon left.

But the primary victim was still in agony. I made her renounce her relationship to the evil spirits. Although she was in terrible pain with all that kicking at the back, she mustered enough courage and strength to renounce them. I asked her thrice: "Do you reject Satan? And all his works? And all his empty promises?" And each time, she said "I do". Then I made her profess her faith: "Do you believe in God, the Father Almighty, Creator of heaven and earth? Do  you believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son our Lord, who was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary, who suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried; and on the third day He rose again and ascended into heaven and sits at the right hand of the Father? And that he will come again to judge the living and the dead? Do you believe in the Holy Spirit, the Holy Catholic Church, the Communion of Saints the forgiveness of sins the resurrection of the body and life everlasting?" And for each query she answered: "I do".

All that time she was wringing in pain. But I had to insist to hear her that she has faith. So with that "I do", I said "This is the faith that will save us." And then I whispered a prayer to the Blessed Mother, "My Lady help me. May in this ministry your Son Jesus would be glorified." And then I proceeded to break all the unholy soul ties that bonded this girl from the unclean spirits that she has encountered. And from there I offered a rather lengthy deliverance prayer different from the one I used with the other three. She was still screaming but this time it grew fainter and fainter until the prayer has finished. Then there was peace. She was okay for now. I asked her to join me in praying the Hail Holy Queen. She was able to do so, and so I knew at that moment she is well.

The spiritual struggle for complete liberation from the unclean spirits for that girl would not occur until many months after. She still had attacks after that experience. She needed to journey then with the Lord and love Him in prayer and the Holy Mass. She needed to understand what true faith is, she needed to face the unclean spirits with complete trust in Jesus. She needed to tidy her life a bit, and grow in virtue. She needed to discover the role of the Blessed Mother in her life, to consecrate herself solemnly and everyday to her, to pray her rosary with true devotion before her final liberation. It would take many more deliverance sessions with her, and two major exorcism sessions. It took also the conversion from the occult practices of family members and an honest to goodness return to the true practice of the Catholic faith for them to hasten her full spiritual healing.

Now she is healed and is part of the AMOE Ministry. Her story is an unbelievable working of grace and her discovery of how real is the maternal love of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of God really is for her. She has discovered indeed the truth behind the prayer:
