Making the sign of the Cross to ward off evil

Back in the Philippines while visiting my in -laws ,
I saw an interesting practice. Upon leaving home,
the whole family, from the youngest to the oldest,
 made the sign of the cross reverently.
I now make the sign of the cross before taking my meals,
and also when I leave home for work.

This practice of making the sign of the cross is the grace of Jesus cross and not  magic formula. A reminder of how Jesus save us by dying on the cross for us.

"Let us, therefore, not be ashamed of the Cross of Christ; but though another hide it, do thou openly seal it upon thy forehead, that the devils may behold the royal sign and flee trembling far away.Make then this sign at eating and drinking, at sitting, at lying down, at rising up, at speaking, at walking: in a word, at every act." St Cyril Bishop of Jerusalem A.D. 386*

"Mark all your actions with the sign of the life giving Cross. Do not go out from the door of your house till you have signed yourself with the Cross. Do not neglect that sign whether in eating or drinking or going to sleep, or in the home or going on a journey. There is no habit to be compared with it. Let it be a protecting wall round all your conduct, and teach it to your children  that they may earnestly learn the custom". St Ephrem of Syria.*

 Our battle is against the kingdom of darkness. The evil spirits and fallen angel's kingdom is like a raging sea surrounding us from all sides, threatening our salvation. Over the centuries, the experience of the Church confirms that the demon are not able to withstand the representation of the Cross and the sign of the cross.

Spirit from the Witching Hour-driven away by sign of the Cross

Travelling down from Malaysia ,at night, the guys started sharing their ghost stories as it was going to be a long journey. Mark said that he used to get up at 1 am every morning and when he looked at the clock it was always 1 am. He found this very weird. He had a grandmother who was a medium and wondered if the spirits that followed his grandmother could be haunting him.
While on a holiday in Australia, he decided to seek a gypsy woman for advice in regards to this weird waking up at 1 am in the morning.

The gypsy woman told him that 1 am to 3 am is not a good timing. It was the witching hour. She believes that something or someone from the world of the dead was trying to reach out to him. She said that if he wakes up at 1 am, he  must make the sign of the cross. That night he woke and it was 1 am,  he made the sign of the cross. Ever since that night he doesn't get up at 1 am. I joked with him that he could have got this advise for free from the catholic church.

House protected by St Benedict Cross and Picture of St Michael

Susan went to a restaurant  with her housemate Maria
(Maria has the gift of the third eye) to have lunch.
All was perfect , meal was great and Susan went to the
counter to make payment. At the counter, there was a black
small monkey- like statue.
While waiting for the cashier to hand over the bill, Susan kept staring at the statue, looking at it in detail as it was hard to look away from it. It was not a pretty statue as it looks like a well preserved mummified monkey. (According to Susan, the statue was never there before as she was a frequent customer.) Maria then came up to the counter and told Susan to look outside the restaurant. Bill was then paid and they left.

 In the car ride home, Susan asked Maria if she had seen what was placed on the counter. She said 'yes' and explained that it is 'alive and full of energy" and most likely placed there to bring business into the restaurant. Upon reaching home, Susan had a terrible headache and went to rest.  When Susan woke up, Maria told her that she heard strange sounds and went to check around the apartment.  She saw the creature pacing and making sounds at the front door. It made groaning and heaving-like sounds but was unable to enter the unit as there was a St. Michael picture and St Benedict cross on the front door. According to Maria, it seems to be there to ask a favor - to be released. But as Maria knows that it has a owner , she choose to ignore and went back to the bedroom. The sounds stooped shortly.

*** Spirits of creatures have been known to be captured and placed in items/ statues to make them 'work for the owners' for monetary gains or bad intentions.

Young Girl Freed from possession by Rosary


Block Rosary prayer group from a particular church used to go around Singapore. They prayed for nine days. So when  I  was 17 years old, my parents invited the prayer group to my home. I notice there was a gold plated rosary around the hands of the statue of Mary. I was so curious and I ask the leader of the group if it was really gold plated.

She told me that a man who followed the prayer group had donated the rosary. His niece was possessed by an evil spirit. Someone tried to charm her father because of some jealousy in the business place. Unfortunately, the charm hit his daughter. She was possessed on Ash Wednesday.

The uncle decided to follow the prayer group and continuously prayed the rosary for his niece to be released from this possession. Exactly one year later, on ash Wednesday, the uncle witnessed the evil spirit leave his niece's bedroom. A dark, shadowy form moved out of the bedroom and left the house.

"Love the Madonna & pray the Rosary, for her Rosary is the weapon against evils of the world today" St Padre Pio

Prayer to St Michael

 Holy Michael the archangel, prince of the heavenly host, 
 who stands always for the help of the people of God,
 combated the infernal serpent,
 cast him out of heaven and valiantly defended the Church of God,
 so that the gates of hell cannot prevail against it:
we beg of you from the bottom of our hearts,
 to assist us in this our dangerous combat,
which we, weak and imperfect creatures, have to wage with the same enemy,
at we may steadily resist and happily overcome him.
Through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.

Rescued from Black Magic

Years ago,a colleague named 'Ali ' ( not real name) at my previous work place was eager to take my position as work coach in a particular disabled sector. He planned to get rid of me so that he can take over my position. He went to several bomohs (witch doctor).

In the beginning, I fell ill with fever and I dreamt of Ali's face. Initially, I was not aware that Ali was involved in this evil plot. I went to work as usual and i spent  time reading the psalms after work. I heard a inner voice telling me to read the psalm 46  three  times.

When I went to work, a good friend (who is gifted to sense the supernatural world)  to informed me that Ali had been consulting bomohs ( witch doctors) This only confirm my suspicion because I had earlier  dreamt of a warning - kept seeing Ali's face. Then, I increase my praying of the psalms. The following weeks I notice Ali walking towards me. He kept avoiding eye contact and avoid to even walk near me. As if i was surrounded by invisible beings.

Psalms are used by Jews and Christians.  In the past, the Jews  used to open the book of Psalms in times of difficulty. Psalms are King David's poetic supplications and praises to God almighty.
I would highly recommend psalms 91 for protection.

Demon chased out from apartment

 A friend of mine shared this experience. They entered a new rental apartment.  After staying in for a few days, her roommate felt uneasy and kept getting nightmares. 

So my friend decided to say a prayer and placed 4 green scapulars on all the four walls of the room. On the next day, they went back to the apartment and found a strange marking on the floor near the bedroom door. There was a claw-like marking on the floor.

It looks more like some demon was forced to get out of the apartment after they placed the blessed scapular in the four directions of the apartment. Through the intercession of Mother Mary and the sacramental (green scapular), my friend's place was freed from the demon.
