The videos below are from a documentary on Philippine TV about genuine exorcisms conducted by Catholic exorcists - including footage of the real exorcism ritual being performed.
For the first time on Philippine television, the Office of Exorcism under the Archdiocese of Manila has opened its doors to a documentary team for an in-depth discussion of a subject that has long been kept behind closed doors. I-Witness, a TV documentary in the Philippines, has been allowed access to the official "exorcists" of the Catholic Church as well as confidential exorcism footage.
Father Jocis Syquia (Jose Francisco C. Syquia) the current head of the Office of the Exorcism, divulges what really goes on during the exorcism ritual conducted by a team of experts composed of priests, a lawyer, a doctor, and volunteers commissioned by the Archdiocese. The team is tasked to handle cases of demonic disturbances in persons, places or things.
In 2008, a news report in the Philippines states that there were 307 cases proven to be demonic in nature.
According to the Archdiocese of Manila Office of Exorcism are 10 causes for demonic possessions: occult involvement; traumatic experience; opening the third eye; contamination (victim of occult activities); sinful lifestyle; new age practices; unforgiveness; false christian beliefs and practices; pornography; and satanism.
