El Arzobispo Coakley Entabla Demanda para Detener Profanación de Hostia Hurtada en Proyectada “Misa Negra”

 

OKLAHOMA CITY (Aug. 20, 2014) -- En una demanda presentada el miércoles en la Corte de Distrito del Condado de Oklahoma, el Arzobispo Pablo Coakley pidió a un juez detener la profanación de una Hostia Eucarística hurtada como parte de una “misa negra” 'satánica proyectada en el Centro Cívico de Oklahoma City.

La hurtada Hostia consagrada, que se obtuvo ilícitamente de una Iglesia Católica, se profanaría "en las formas más viles imaginables", como una ofrenda en sacrificio a satanás. Este ritual satánico específico conocido como “misa negra” pretende ser un ataque deliberado a la Misa Católica, así como a las creencias fundamentales de todos los cristianos con el propósito declarado de burlarse de la Fe Católica. 

“Me he sentido alentado por el apoyo internacional y multireligioso que hemos recibido en solidaridad contra este ritual satánico público previsto para el próximo mes en la ciudad de Oklahoma. Mientras sigo llamando a todos los Católicos, Cristianos y personas de buena voluntad a orar diariamente por la cancelación de la llamada “misa negra” he dado un paso legal para combatir esta violación blasfema y obscena de la Misa Católica", dijo el Arzobispo Pablo Coakley, Arzobispo de la Arquidiócesis de Oklahoma City.

“Los católicos creemos que Jesucristo está realmente presente bajo la forma de pan y vino en la Santa Eucaristía y es la fuente y cumbre de nuestra fe. Los organizadores locales de esta violación satánica tienen la intención de utilizar una hurtada Hostia consagrada obtenida ilícitamente de una Iglesia Católica para profanarlo como sacrificio a satanás. A través de esta acción legal, espero evitar la profanación de la Hostia y que justamente sea devuelta a la Iglesia.”

Específicamente, la demanda solicita la devolución de la Hostia como propiedad hurtada y una orden judicial contra su destrucción.

El Arzobispo Coakley sigue pidiendo a los fieles rezar la Oración a San Miguel Arcángel, al final de cada Misa, y pide que cada parroquia lleve a cabo una Hora Santa Eucarística con  la Bendición con El Santísimo.

Letter: Call to Prayer to Avert "black mass"

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.

Archbishop Coakley calls for united campaign of prayer, procession and benediction in response to scheduled “black mass”

OKLAHOMA CITY (Aug. 5, 2014) – In a letter Monday to priests and parishioners throughout the Archdiocese of Oklahoma City, Archbishop Paul S. Coakley called for a united campaign of prayer and Eucharistic Procession to avert the so-called satanic “black mass” scheduled at the Civic Center in September.

“In spite of repeated requests, there is no indication that the city intends to prevent this event from taking place. I have raised my concerns … and pointed out how deeply offensive this proposed sacrilegious act is to Christians and especially to the more than 250,000 Catholics who live in Oklahoma. I am certainly concerned about the misuse of a publicly supported facility for an event which has no other purpose than mocking Catholic faith,” the archbishop states in the letter. “I am calling on all Catholics of the Archdiocese of Oklahoma City to counteract this challenge to faith and decency through prayer and penance.”
