Hi Father,
Hello Po. Question Po regarding subo.
Ang Lola ko po ay Na stroked last year and damaged 1/2 of her brain and been living of not even a cup of broth / milk per day.  Based Po sa nutrition value and water intake that a normal person should not have live this long. She received the last rite last April/March.
I went back home last April Po and I gave her my scapular with st Benedict medal, gave her blessed salt and epiphany water with her for food, I also sprinkled bless salt around the kubo where she is staying.
Not it’s been a year and she’s balat buto Na Po. I think she is fighting her demons. Question ko Po ay is she a candidate for solemn exorcism? 
Thank you and God bless 
Ps: I contact archdiocese of Manila because I had problem connecting with archdioces of antipolo. I live in Canada Po.

DEAR JP,

WE ARE SO SORRY FOR WHAT IS HAPPENING WITH YOUR LOLA [GRANDMA]. WE ARE WITH YOU IN PRAYERS FOR HER HEALING AND RECOVERY, HOWEVER, AS CATHOLIC CHRISTIANS WE HAVE TO ACCEPT THE WILL OF THE LORD. IF EVER THE LORD IS CALLING HER TO ETERNAL LIFE WE MUST OFFER HER SOUL TO GOD WHO CREATED HER IN LOVE. LET US THEN ENTRUST HER FATE TO THE LOVE AND MERCY OF GOD IN WHOSE IMAGE AND LIKENESS SHE WAS CREATED.

BASED ON THE INFORMATION THAT YOU GAVE ME THE CASE OF YOUR LOLA IS NOT DEMONIC POSSESSION BUT PURE MEDICAL REASONS. SHE IS SUFFERING IN SUCH A WAY BECAUSE OF ‘STROKE’ THAT AFFECTED HER BRAIN.

IF SHE WAS GIVEN THE LAST RITES IT MEANS THAT A PRIEST HAS VISITED HER ALREADY AND DIDN’T RECOMMEND THAT EXORCISM BE DONE. IF YOU THINK THAT SHE IS TROUBLED BY EVIL SPIRITS THE FIRST THING TO DO IS LET HER BE EXAMINED BY THE LOCAL PRIEST WHO WILL DETERMINE IF THERE IS ANY GENUINE SIGNS OF DEMONIC INFESTATION OR POSSESSION. THE PRIEST WILL RECITE PRAYERS OF DELIVERANCE OVER HER AND WILL JUDGE ACCORDINGLY. HE WILL HELP YOU AND YOUR FAMILY TO CONTACT PROPER AUTHORITIES IF THERE IS A NEED OF FORMAL EXORCISM BECAUSE OUR PRIESTS HAVE DIRECT CONTACT WITH THE BISHOP WHO KNOWS THE CHIEF EXORCIST OF HIS DIOCESE.

IF WE WILL BASE ONLY ON THE INFORMATION THAT YOU GAVE WE CAN SAY THAT THERE IS NO DEMONIC POSSESSION. THIS IS A MERE MEDICAL PROBLEM COMMON FOR THOSE WHO SUFFER SEVERE STROKES. THUS, INSTEAD OF WASTING YOUR ENERGY TO FIND AN EXORCIST INSTEAD YOU FOCUS ON PRAYING FOR HER HEALING AND FOR A BLESSED DEATH BY ENTRUSTING HER TO THE MERCY OF GOD AND TO THE SPIRITUAL CARE OF MAMA MARY, ST. JOSEPH AND ST. MICHAEL. GOD BLESS YOU AND YOUR FAMILY, MOST ESPECIALLY YOUR BELOVED LOLA.

WE SHARE YOUR PAIN AND WE JOIN YOU IN PRAYERS.
