'Possessed' girl in Zambo brought to church
ZAMBOANGA City – Relatives and neighbors brought a woman to a parish church to rid the evil spirit that allegedly possessed her on Tuesday night in Zamboanga City.
It took about 8 to 10 people to carry the woman to the St. Anthony of Padua parish in Barangay Putik.
Parish priest Father Teofilo Pimentel immediately offered a prayer for the woman. The priest said the prayers and blessings made the woman scream and twist to free herself.
Several minutes later, the woman calmed down.
The priest said it was possible that the woman was indeed possessed by an evil spirit. However, he is not discounting the possibility that the girl is suffering from psychological or emotional problems.
The priest added that he did not consider the woman’s condition as an exorcism case.
The family decided to spend the night inside the church. The family also declined to be identified, but added that it was the second time that their relative was possessed by an evil spirit. RJ Rosalado, ABS-CBN Zamboanga
