EXORCISM: Encounters with the Paranormal and the Occult

“Everyday of our life is a struggle between good and evil, in small ways, and as is shown in his book, Fr. Jose Francisco Syquia, the director of the Office of Exorcism of the Archdiocese of Manila, says the devil can be literally, in us. Toward this topic, Fr. Syquia shares information, recounts experiences and suggests steps on how to avoid or address this kind of event.  But at the end of the day, may we realize that it is through prayers, good works, love of and faith in God that we can triumph over evil-in and around us-all the time.”

EXORCIST Volume I:  A Spiritual Journey  

“….truly the work of a priest of God, this book teaches us how to focus and keep moving towards the goal of our Christian journey:  transforming union with Christ inspite of whatever evil havoc we can find ourselves in.  What is more interesting is the transparency of Fr. Jocis as he interweaves these teachings in his biography.  By his own life witness, he shows how life becomes exciting when we begin to see how Christ relates with us in our day-to-day lives.”

EXORCIST Volume II: Spiritual Battle Lines  


” Fr. Jocis’ experience as confided in this book is a resounding affirmation of Christian faith and hope.   We confess that God is all good.  In Jesus we have come to know that the evil one had failed to stain the purity of God’s love.  The Holy Spirit has been poured into our hearts and on the Church so that the power of the name of Jesus the  Risen One may vanquish our fear.  In the love of God victorious in Jesus, we are more than conquerors in the face of trials, persecution, temptation, and death.  This is the truth proclaimed by the ministry of exorcism.”

-His Eminence Luis Antonio G. Cardinal Tagle D.D.

Archbishop of Manila
