Filipino archbishop
  • Pope Francis recognized the “heroic virtue” of Filipino Archbishop Teofilo Camomot, who some claim had the ability to be in two places at the same time.
  • Camomot, who was born on March 3, 1914, became a priest in 1941 before being consecrated as a bishop in 1955.
  • He was known in Cebu for his “spiritual gifts.” Testimonies reported his ability to levitate in prayer, heal the sick and bilocate.
  • A testimony from the late archbishop of Cebu Cardinal Ricardo Vida reported that Camomot was with him on Sept. 27, 1985, during the same time Camomot was seen anointing a sick man in a mountain village about 30 miles away.
