Recently I came across a schedule of events for the Civic Center Music Hall in Oklahoma City. Imagine my astonishment upon reading about a ticketed “Black Mass” performance that will be presented at this public institution!
I am willing to give the benefit of the doubt and assume that this event was scheduled without knowledge of what was going to be taking place. The so-called Black Mass is an occult ritual normally carried out in secret among those initiated into its dark mysteries. It is astonishing that this is being performed in such a public way and in public space. In a Black Mass a consecrated Sacred Host, obtained by stealth from a Catholic Mass, is corrupted in a vile and sexual manner and then becomes the sacrifice of this pseudo Mass offered in homage to Satan.
“Then they told what had happened on the road, and how he was known to them in the breaking of the bread.” Luke 24: 35
Priests have the awesome responsibility of participating in Christ’s sacrifice, in the changing of bread and wine into Body and Blood at every Mass. They shepherd the people of God through every stage of life, from baptisms, to marriages, to the final hours of life. Are you being called to this extraordinary way of life?

An occasion of joy and thanksgiving for the Church in Oklahoma

OKLAHOMA CITY (June 28, 2014) – At 10 a.m., Saturday, June 28, in a highly-anticipated ceremony at the Cathedral of Our Lady of Perpetual Help in Oklahoma City, Archbishop Paul Coakley ordained five men to the priesthood – the largest priestly class to come out of the Archdiocese of Oklahoma City since 1991.
"Today is an extraordinary day," Archbishop Coakley said June 28. "It’s been more than 20 years since we have had the great privilege to ordain as many priests in one day as we have the privilege and joy of ordaining this day."

Recientemente me encontré con un programa de eventos para el Teatro del Centro Cívico (Music Hall Civic Center en inglés) en Oklahoma City. ¡Imaginen mi asombro al leer acerca de boletos para una función de una "Misa Negra", que se presentará en esta institución pública!
Estoy dispuesto a darle el beneficio de la duda y asumir que este evento estaba programado sin el conocimiento de lo que se va a llevar a cabo. La llamada Misa Negra es un ritual oculto normalmente llevado a cabo en secreto entre los iniciados en sus misterios oscuros. Es asombroso que esto se esté realizando de manera pública y en espacio público. En una Misa Negra una Sagrada Hostia consagrada, obtenida por sigilo de una Misa Católica, es corrompida de una manera vil y sexual y luego se convierte en el sacrificio de esta falsa Misa ofrecida en homenaje a Satanás.
