Archbishop Coakley Files Lawsuit to Halt Desecration of Stolen Host in ‘Black Mass’

 

OKLAHOMA CITY (Aug. 20, 2014) – In a lawsuit filed Wednesday in Oklahoma County District Court, Archbishop Paul Coakley asked a judge to halt the desecration of a stolen Eucharistic Host as part of a planned satanic ‘black mass’ at Oklahoma City’s Civic Center Music Hall.

The stolen consecrated Host, which was obtained illicitly from a Catholic church, is to be desecrated “in the vilest ways imaginable” as an offering in sacrifice to Satan. This specific satanic ritual known as a ‘black mass’ is intended as a deliberate attack on the Catholic Mass as well as the foundational beliefs of all Christians with the stated purpose of mocking the Catholic faith.

Archbishop Coakley's call for prayer and penance

Archbishop Coakley is calling on all Catholics of the Archdiocese of Oklahoma City to counteract the upcoming challenge to faith and decency through prayer and penance.

He has asked that the Prayer to St. Michael the Archangel be included at the conclusion of every Mass through the Feast of the Archangels on Sept. 29.  He invites all Catholics to pray daily for divine protection through the intercession of this heavenly patron who once defeated Lucifer in his rebellion against the Almighty and who stands ready to assist us in this hour of need.

 Secondly, the archbishop has asked that each parish conduct a Eucharistic Holy Hour with Benediction to honor Christ’s Real Presence in the Holy Eucharist before Sept. 21.

 On Sept. 21, the archbishop invites all Catholics, Christians and people of good will to join him in prayer for a Holy Hour, outdoor Eucharistic Procession and Benediction at St. Francis of Assisi Church in Oklahoma City at 3 p.m.  We will pray to publicly manifest our faith in the Lord and our loving gratitude for the gift of the Holy Eucharist, the source and summit of our lives.

A Very Effective Evangelist in a Very Tough PlacePodcast
by Sooner Catholic
Earlier this year, Deacon Roy Forsythe stopped in the Office of New Evangelization to inquire about opportunities for evangelizing prisoners at the county jail where he ministers. He indicated that he has about 10 minutes of one-on-one time with each prisoner, and sometimes there can be 40 men waiting to see him on a given day. With only ten minutes, he doesn’t waste time--he goes for the sale. He then made his sales pitch to me, and I was so impressed that I thought perhaps it might be helpful to others to encounter his method. It is outstanding. Beginning from here, Deacon Forsythe has had the opportunity to bring many prisoners into full communion with Jesus Christ in the Catholic Church. Have a listen, and ponder how you might adapt the same content when you are having dinner with a friend, a chat with a teen, or a conversation with a co-worker. Perhaps more to the point, how could such a sales pitch be built into various ministry contexts with people who need to take a step forward with Jesus? If it can work in a jail, where else can it work?

Archbishop Coakley Calls for Prayer and Penance to Avert Planned Sacrilege

August 4, 2014
The Memorial of St. John Vianney

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

By now you are probably aware that a Satanic group has scheduled a so-called Black Mass for Sunday, September 21 at the Civic Center Music Hall in Oklahoma City. 

Even though tickets are being sold for this event as if it were merely some sort of dark entertainment, this Satanic ritual is deadly serious.  It is a blasphemous and obscene inversion of the Catholic Mass.  Using a consecrated Host obtained illicitly from a Catholic church and desecrating it in the vilest ways imaginable, the practitioners offer it in sacrifice to Satan.  This terrible sacrilege is a deliberate attack on the Catholic Mass as well as the foundational beliefs of all Christians.  It mocks Our Lord Jesus Christ, whom we Catholics believe is truly present under the form of bread and wine in the Holy Eucharist when it has been consecrated by a validly ordained priest.

Arzobispo Coakley llama a la oración y la penitencia para evitar el sacrilegio planeado

Memoria de San Juan María Vianney

Queridos Hermanos y Hermanas en Cristo,

Ya probablemente saben que un grupo satánico ha programado una llamada Misa Negra para el domingo, 21 de septiembre en el Salón de Música del Centro Cívico en Oklahoma City.

A pesar de que boletos se están vendiendo para este evento como si fuera simplemente algún tipo de entretenimiento oscuro, este ritual satánico es realmente algo muy serio. Es una inversión blasfema y obscena de la Misa Católica. Usando una Hostia consagrada obtenida ilícitamente de una Iglesia Católica y profanarla en las formas más viles imaginables, los practicantes lo ofrecen en sacrificio a Satanás. Este terrible sacrilegio es un ataque deliberado a la Misa Católica, así como las creencias fundamentales de todos los cristianos. Se burla de Nuestro Señor Jesucristo, a quien los Católicos creen que está realmente presente bajo las especies del pan y el vino en la Santa Eucaristía cuando ha sido consagrada por un sacerdote válidamente ordenado.
