Monk, Nuns Charged in Exorcism Death
Thursday, June 23, 2005
BUCHAREST, Romania — A Romanian monk and four nuns have been charged with murder after a nun died during an exorcism in which she was crucified and left without food for three days, a prosecutor said Thursday.
The case has caused an outrage in Romania. Daniel Petre Corogeanu (search), the detained monk, has been defiant, insisting he was trying to take the devils out of 23-year-old Maricica Irina Cornici.
She died last week in a northeast Romania (search) convent after she was bound to a cross, had a towel stuffed into her mouth and left without food for three days. The four were charged in Vaslui Wednesday, as people stood outside the prosecutor's office, with some supporting the monk and nuns and others calling for them to be convicted.
On Sunday, nuns yelled at a vicar who had come to suspend Corogeanu, 29, and scuffles broke out, the television station N24 reported. Riot police had to restore order. The Holy Trinity convent has been closed by the Romanian Orthodox Church (search).
"You can't take the devil out of people with pills," he said. "You cure [possession by] the devils with fasting and prayer."
He added the nun had to be restrained because she was violent, but he denied that she was starved.

At any rate, it's a truly sad event.
I will light a white prayer candle to help light this young ladies path across time and so that her spirit may pass over into peace and unconditional love, unhampered by evil.

Um, I'd be violent too if someone was trying to crucify me.
Sheesh, you don't post for awhile and people try to take your title. Not yours, you can't have it.

Corogeanu was jailed in 2005 along with four other nuns who helped him with the ritual at the Tanacu monastery in eastern Romania.
There is also a disturbing video of the poor victims funeral

Literally crucifying someone is not how an established church (Catholic, Orthodox, etc.) would do. Also; It would kill someone (Okay; Those guys in The Philippines are an exception but those crucifixions are done in a way as to not cause permanent damage. They're 'Crucifixion Lite').
No; I think all these "rituals" are simply torture-murders carried out against people who refuse to conform or submit.
I remember an alleged Muslim "holy man" in Pakistan who pummeled a little girl to death with a club. The parents brought to kid to the "holy man" for an exorcism and that horrible guy did THAT! I think he was just a murderer who liked to kill kids and was as much a "religious figure" as much as Harold P. Warren was an awesome film-maker, Gordon Ramsey a terrible cook or Godzilla a small adorable rodent!
The Clergy and Religious who did this must be the stupidest people in the universe to not think "Starvation & Crucifixion = DEATH!".
EDIT: I read the story, now. She wasn't crucified in the real "Nail then to a cross". She was tied to a cross and left to starve. Still awful, though.
You don't need to beat, torture, rape, stave, whip, crucify, poison, etc. a person as an exorcism.
