Thousands Gather To Listen To “Holy Man’s” Prophecy About Coronavirus
Social distancing was the last thing on the minds of the thousands that gathered in the Dominican city of Puerto Plata to listen to a popular “pilgrim” prophesize that God will rid the country and the whole world of this pandemic.
The people gathered in thousands, in what is a flagrant breach of social distancing measures imposed by the Dominican Government, to listen to Mildomio Adames.
Adames, a self-proclaimed holy man revealed that he had had a divine revelation. Adames told the excited crowd that he had to dump a large wooden crucifix into the sea to make God end the Covid-19 pandemic.
In one of the videos published to his official YouTube account, Adames said:
“On Monday, they will already be able to tell that the world that the Dominican Republic and many countries in the world will not have the disease because God has already cleaned us.”
According to Monsignor Julio César Corniel Amaro, the Bishop of Puerto Plata, before gathering in the open to hear the pilgrim’s revelation, the mob stormed the Cathedral of San Felipe Apóstol.
“When the ‘pilgrims’ arrived at the cathedral, which was closed at the time, they forcibly opened a door and entered the premises, where they remained for around 10 minutes and then left after a message from the leader of the group,” Amaro said in a statement.
The gathering has since been met with backlash as many public figures and politicians denounced the even.
A senator described the gathering as a “terrorist attack” that undermines the safety of the entire country.
Reacting to the backlash, Adames defended that he was not expecting the crowd that gathered to greet him.
However, this did not stop Adames who calls himself ‘The Pilgrim’ from preaching to them, telling them to repent for their sins and seek God.
Adames claims he began the pilgrimage from his home province of San Cristobal to invoke God, asking the Almighty to have mercy on humanity in the face of the current coronavirus pandemic. He has been saying that he had prophesized that this pandemic was coming since last year, as Jesus Christ had sent him several signs.
