.- In the face of increasing numbers of demonic possessions, the Diocese of Querétaro, Mexico, has created an Exorcism Ministry, headed up by Fr. Salvador Espinosa Medina, vicar general of the diocese. According to a spokesman, the ministry was created as a result of “the increase in phenomenon related to victims of spells, possessions, obsessions and oppressions.”

 Bishop Mario de Gasperín of Querétaro issued a letter instructing priests to immediately report suspected cases of demonic possession to the Ministry.

He also requested that pastors who suspect demonic activity in a particular event listen to the persons that are affected before sending them to the exorcists, so that they can get to know and collaborate in their spiritual cure.

In the last five years the Diocese of Querétaro has registered more than 400 cases of diabolic possession.

Most of these were the result of experimentation with activities such as sorcery, tarot cards, and ouija boards.
