A shocking ‘resurrection ceremony’ for a two-year-old dead boy at a Texas church has been caught on camera.
In the clip capturing the attempted resurrection, the boy identified by a witness as Benjamin, is being held in the arms of Texas pastor’s wife Aracely Meza as others, including a man who appears to be her husband Pastor Daniel Meza, are gathered around.
The witness, who said she knew Benjamin’s mother since she was pregnant with him, said the child was possessed by demons, according to pastors.
She also said he went 25 days without food before he died.
In the footage, Meza apparently uses oils to try and bring him back to life while also praying and speaking in tongues during the ‘rising ceremony’ lasting for hours.
She also invokes Jesus to give life into the child.
Meza, who is reportedly not the child’s mother, was taken into custody on Monday and Balch Springs police said she has been charged with injury to a child by omission, according to NBCDFW.
She is currently being held on a $100,000 bond, a police spokesman told Daily Mail Online, and more information will be available on Tuesday.
Police went to a home on March 26 in Balch Springs to do a welfare check and were told by residents that a two-year-old child had died and a ‘rising ceremony’ was performed, according to CBS. Watch the Video here
