On Sunday, Sept. 21, a local satanic sect apparently will be allowed to conduct a public act of blasphemy in the form of a so-called black mass at the Civic Center in Oklahoma City. In spite of an overwhelming outcry of alarm from around the world, our city leaders will allow this outrage to take place in a publicly supported facility. They will not accede to the reasonable requests of local citizens to stop this outright mockery of the Catholic Mass nor the reasonable concerns of so many that this satanic ritual invokes powers of evil and invites them into our community.
Even though our city leaders apparently do not take this threat seriously, I do. As a Catholic priest and bishop I have witnessed in my ministry the battle between forces of good and evil in both ordinary and extraordinary ways.

Please pray this act of blasphemy may be canceled as was a similar one scheduled in Boston, not long ago. Nothing is impossible with God. Please pray also for the conversion of those who organized this satanic ritual.
Mother of Mercy, intercede for us.
St. Joseph Guardian of the Church, pray for us.
St. Michael the Archangel defend us in battle.
