MANILA — More Catholic groups have expressed their support for exorcist priest Fr. Winston Cabading following his arrest on charges of offending religious feelings.
The Lay Catholic Initiative said 12 Catholic groups condemned the arrest of Cabading on May 13.
“We are an alliance of Catholic Lay groups supporting Cabading,” Leticia Corpus Syquia said.
These groups are the Catholic Faith Defenders-National, Parents of Priests Association, Confraternity of Mediatrix of All Grace Alabang, Exorcism Cross Group, Works of Saints Apostolate Movement, Tuesday Marian Cenacle Group (Forbes), Young Thomasian Professionals Lay Dominican Fraternity, Carmel of Mary Star of the Sea, Warriors Rosary International, Christian Family Movement 12 and Divine Mercy Prayer Group.
Former Commission on Elections chief Harriet Demetriou filed a complaint against Cabading for offending religious feelings when he claimed that there is a 1951 Lipa Diocesan Verdict that “negated the authenticity of the 1948 apparition of Our Lady, Mary, Mediatrix of All Grace.”
Demetriou is said to be a devotee of the Our Lady of Mary Mediatrix of All Grace.
