Colombia -A Catholic bishop will spray holy water over an entire city from a military helicopter in an attempt to conquer the demons he believes are plaguing it.
Monsignor Rubén Darío Jaramillo Montoya will perform the mass exorcism for the Colombian seaport of Buenaventura during the city’s annual patron saints’ festivities.
“We want to go around the whole of Buenaventura, from the air and pour holy water onto it to see if we exorcise all those demons that are destroying our port,” he told a Colombian radio station.
The bishop, ordained in 2017 by Pope Francis, added he wanted to “get rid of all the wickedness that is in our streets” during the helicopter flight. Buenaventura, the South American nation’s biggest Pacific seaport, is notorious for drug trafficking and the violence wage by criminal gangs.
