The Archdiocese of Manila Office of Exorcism (AMOE) was established in 2006 in order to address the growing number of cases who need liberation from extraordinary demonic attacks/bondages.
Exorcism and Deliverance falls under the Ministry of the Sick. This entails a program that encompasses not only diagnostic procedures and the deliverance/exorcism itself, but must also include proper follow-ups and evaluations. The whole thrust of this ministry is to guide the afflicted person to grow in holiness by bringing him to an intimate relationship with Jesus. This is the only real goal of the ministry and the success of the exorcism should be centered on this. This may entail exorcism prayers, guidance and counseling, evangelization of the person and his family, introduction to a community where the patient can find support and regular evaluation of progress in both his spiritual life and liberation.
The major focus of the ministry of liberation is to help the person make the proper response to the Lord’s call for a personal relationship. We aid others in taking responsibility for their lives. Prayer is the overall context of liberation.
