Opposing and Exorcising Evil with Confession and the Virtue of OBEDIENCE

The Archbishop continues: "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. It is not merely a struggle rooted in human weakness and ignorance, though these are certainly the source of much suffering and mayhem in our lives and in our world. Demonic activity and the chaotic forces of evil are very real. The madness of war accompanied by increasingly brutal acts of terror, the violence in our schools and communities are all evidence that something is terribly wrong.
G.K. Chesterton, a convert from the Anglican Church wrote; “To have a right to do a thing is not at all the same as to be right in doing it” 


            Fight evil with obedience

We can make up for sin and give more power to the forces of good through the virtue of obedience.

So I am joining with Archbishop Paul S. Coakley  not to go to the Civic Center but rather join the Archbishop  in obedience to his most  recent directives "THE HOUR HAS COME" The Archbishop  invited everyone to go  and join him at St Francis of Assisi Church for a peaceful prayerful  Eucharistic witness. Do not go to the Civic Center Venue to confront the Satanists.

Archbishop Coakley has invited all Catholics, Christians, and people of good will to join him in prayer at 3 pm.on Sunday, Sept. 21st."We will gather for a public act of worship at St. Francis of Assisi Church. I invite all Catholics as well as other Christians and people of good will to join us for a Eucharistic Holy Hour, an outdoor Eucharistic procession and Benediction beginning at 3 p.m. We will prayerfully bear witness to our faith as an expression of our solidarity and in reparation for acts of blasphemy. Bishop Slattery has asked all parishes of his diocese to conduct a Eucharistic Holy Hour at the time the Black Mass is taking place.

Archbishop Coakley is discouraging protestors from engaging with those present at  at the black mass. In his most recent statement on his blog titled "THE HOUR HAS COME" the archbishop commented: “I am aware that other groups are planning to show their opposition to the blasphemous event at the Civic Center. I urgently ask everyone to avoid confrontations with those
Civic Center
who might oppose them,” he says.


“Our witness ought to be reverent, respectful and peaceful."  (MAY I ADD OBEDIENT!)" I urge those who might plan to attend the black mass in order to pray or to protest not to do so! Please do not enter the venue. It would be presumptuous and dangerous to expose oneself or others to these evil influences.”  The devil is real and not to be played with.

So please reconsider where you hold your peaceful prayerful protest in Oklahoma City.  It will have much more spiritual effect if done in obedience. Do it in union with the bishops not on our own agendas because of a media effect.  You will really be helping to exorcise the civic center and the church from the effects of the  "smoke of satan. You will be fighting a spiritual battle with spiritual weapons. You will be helping to expel the smoke of satan from civic center and in the church  through the sins of very proud disobedient Catholics.

  Battles between good and evil





The archbishop continues: "The crucial battleground for the forces of good and evil is the human heart. As a Christian, I believe that Jesus Christ came to conquer the power of sin and to cast out demons. This was an essential part of his mission and ministry. It continues in his Church. Through his death and resurrection, Jesus Christ has gained the victory. He has destroyed the power of Satan, the Prince of Darkness and Father of Lies. The war has been won, though skirmishes will continue until Christ comes again in glory. As people of faith we dare not lose hope. Victory is assured."


 

If God is real so is the devil! What is disturbing today is that society now has accepted to openly worship Satan. Proponents of the Black Mass satanists want the right to teach our children satanism as an alternative religion. By the letter of the law, the Satanists claim a questionable right to “freedom” of religion.

The Black Mass has been done for centuries hidden in the dark of night underground by Satanists, this first  public Satanic event symbolically proclaims to the nation that our Christian moral code will no longer be accepted and will be attacked. Satan is a tyrant who will tolerate no other religions before him. All religious, economic, sexual or social in the name of tolerance, must be permitted. All except for those who cling to the old consensus, Christians and Jews. We will must be targets and shackled with laws that violate our consciences even put to death.

It is hard to comprehend but there are people who in this life choose to serve Satan and help him as his instruments of evil to destroy the church of Christ on earth. Some people really give themselves to the devil and are used by him to destroy civilization and the church.

                     
Humanae Vitae.  "so controversial, yet so crucial for humanity's future."  Benedict XVI

Where did this power came from this great evil unleashed in the church and the world.  Satan received his power because Catholic's have failed in the witness of their faith.  Recall the words of Venerable soon to be Blessed Pope Paul VI in the late 1960's as he lamented that "the smoke of satan has entered the church."  What happened that this evil spirit entered the church? It was the verbal disobedience of the bishops along with their priests and the faithful to his encyclical Humane Vitea. 

On 12 May 2008, Benedict XVI on the 40th anniversary of Humanae Vitae. said that the encyclical was "so controversial, yet so crucial for humanity's future." Humanae Vitae became "a sign of contradiction but also of continuity of the Church's doctrine and tradition... What was true yesterday is true also today." Humane Vitea was the last encyclical letter written by Ven. Pope Paul VI.

Satan's smoke is in the church today through the disobedience of her children including priests bishops and cardinal's to the magesterium of the church.This disobedience is magnified today when any prelate decides and implements which laws passed by the Churchs Magesterium that he will obey or not obey. 

Pied piper leading the children to their death
In a sense we have many little popes running around creating their own magesterium! Many trusted to their spiritual ruin. This is in a simplistic nut shell why the evil spirit has gained so much power in the world coming first in ranks of the church in the 1960's.  So goes the church so goes the world. There is so much to be said here but for the sake of the original subject on the black Mass and obedience to the bishop of Oklahoma I cannot elaborate further. 
 In short having said all of this, we will defeat Satan's power if we can humble ourselves in obedience to lawful church authority. But church authority must also be obedient to the living teaching magesterium.This is where our faith is tested to see God behind our lawful superiors especially when their lives do not reflect their faith.  A certain Do as I say not as I do scenario.  It is taken for granted that our obedience in all areas except for sin. No one can may obey a sinful command.But if in doubt God will never fault us for obedience to a superior. We will gain many graces for ourselves and others.


 Disobedience rooted in the sin of pride
Souls in hell with the demons

Let us not repeat the "Non Serviam" I shall not serve with our personal acts of disobedience. Disobedience is always rooted in  the sin of pride.  Be they satanists or within the church even the highest ranks of the church!! Satan
wanted to be like God in saying I shall not serve.  Pride is the first sin, and the root of all the others. We are still tempted to give the same answer, we will not serve God, and if we answer thus we put ourselves in Satan's kingdom, and live in a hell on earth to serve him.

We must not re-write church law to fit our own agendas. We become like  Lucifer who wanted to become like God. Our pride has so blinded us we cannot see that we are no longer in the light but sitting in the dark leading others into the dark.Self deceived and blinded  by our pride our personal agenda is what matters.  No matter what centuries of the doctrine of the saints or present church law stipulates. May God have mercy on proud Catholics! We will see and weep one day what our sins of pride have done to the church and the world giving the devil more power in our lives.

Recall the recent severe storms in the Oklahoma area, the mile wide tornado’s ect. These were warnings and are the beginnings of natures revolt against Man. If we invoke the prince of this world we will suffer the consequences of his powers against man. God will allow it these chastisements because of our unrepentant sins of commission and omission! Satan is the great liar and deceiver and we are falling into his trap. We have seen the beginning of the end of America. 

Returning to Chesterton, “To have a right to do a thing is not at all the same as to be right in doing it”  Wake up America!

Defeat of the rebellious angels Sebastiano Ricci
If you cannot be there  then DO SOMETHING FOR HEAVENS SAKE!   You may join spiritually with the Church in Oklahoma through prayer and fasting from meat, sweets or drink ect, for nine days along with the following prayers before the Feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross. Many souls go to hell because there are no one who are willing to pray and sacrifice for them!   We give the  novena and sacrifices as weapons for Our Lady and St. Michael to intervene! Spiritual battles must be fought with spiritual weapons!

"If the event involved stomping on the Koran, I bet the Civic Center would be calling for tolerance," said TFP Student Action Director, John Ritchie.  "But since the Black Mass calls for stomping on the Holy Eucharist, the Civic Center claims the event is 'educational' and deserves a public platform, which happens to be funded with Christian tax-dollars.  Shame on the Civic Center.  They're misusing the 1st Amendment as a billy club to beat God-loving Americans over the head.  It needs to stop."

Novena Exaltation of Holy Cross

We adore thee, O Christ, and we bless thee, for by thy Holy Cross thou hast redeemed the world!
 
Cross Jesus, Who because of Thy burning Love for us you willed to be crucified and to shed your Most Precious Blood for the Redemption and Salvation of our souls, look down upon us and grant the petition we humbly ask for (our prayer intention here: ...Send the Holy Angels to protect and defend your faithful against the evils  unleashed  in the offering of a public black mass September 21 in Oklahoma City.
Lord we trust completely in Thy Mercy. Cleanse us from sin by Thy Grace, sanctify our work, give us and all those who are dear to us our daily bread, lighten the burden of our sufferings, bless our families, and grant to the nations, so sorely afflicted, Thy Peace, which is the only True Peace, so that by obeying Thy Commandments we may come at last to the Glory of Heaven. Amen

Let us pray :  O God, Who, for the redemption of the world, was pleased to be born in a stable, and to die upon a Cross; O Lord Jesus Christ, by your Holy Sufferings, which we, your unworthy servants, devoutly call to mind, by your Holy Cross, and your Passion and Death, deliver us from the pains of hell, and vouchsafe to conduct us where you conducted the thief who was crucified with you. Who livest and reignest eternally in Heaven. Amen.

August Queen of Heaven, sovereign Mistress of the Angels, thou who didst receive from the beginning the mission and the power to crush the serpent’s head, we beseech thee to send thy holy angels, that under thy command and by thy power, they may pursue the evil spirits, encounter them on every side, resist their bold attacks, and drive them hence into the abyss of woe.

Most holy Mother, send thy angels to defend us and to drive the cruel enemy from us.   

All ye holy angels and archangels, help and defend us.

O good and tender Mother Thou shalt ever be our Love and hope.

St. Joseph, Patron of the Universal Church come to our aid in this great battle against the forces of darkness.


St Michael the Archangel, summon the entire heavenly court in this fierce battle against the powers of hell and unclean spirits. 

Come O  prince of Heaven with the mighty sword. Be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke them we humbly pray and do thou O prince of the Heavenly hosts by the Divine power of God Cast into hell satan and all the other unclean spirits who prowl throughout the world seeking the ruin of souls.

Excerpts below from TFP STUDENT ACTION…..
Urge our elected officials and civic leaders to stop the satanic “Black Mass” at the Oklahoma City Civic Center and stand up for the common good.  Because true Americans do not want their communities to become dens of satanic darkness.  Ever! True Americans do not want their children to grow up in a society where satanic black masses are considered normal and acceptable!
Sacrilege is not free speech. Sacrilege is not educational. Sacrilege is not American.
Down with satan!

Bishops of Oklahoma and an Exorcist give strong warnings not to attend proposed Black Mass



Last Supper Juan de Juanes (c. 1560)
Black Masses have taken place for centuries as long as there was a Church and the devil fighting against her. They were very hidden held in secret, only avowed satanists participated.  If they were caught they would have been tried and condemned to death.

So what’s the fuss? This is radically different. Society has degenerated to such a degree these demonic rituals are no longer done in secret but they are supported by the government in public buildings and promoted as entertainment under the guise of freedom of speech. However, there is a two sided coin in this. To these people Satan is their God and worshiping him is a real religious service.

Christians  can no longer display the 10 Commandments in government or public buildings.  The law also forbids Christians from displaying a crèche on public property during the Christmas season.  How is it that Oklahoma will soon allow a statue of Lucifer to be placed on public property near the state capital glorifying the worship of the devil sanctioned by the government. If Christians and Jews are no longer allowed to pray in government buildings before meetings yet one can attend a spiritual event labeled a black mass performed by Satanist who is a registered sex offender and using stolen property from the Catholic Church! ( Consecrated Host).


Statue of Lucifer to be placed at Oklahoma Capitol building Hirsch Files Blog
From the Hirsch Files Blog  Posted by  Laramise Hirsch
“Afraid to offend the Evil One and his minions, managers of the civic Center will weakly acquiesce as Satan places yet another foothold in Oklahoma’s capital. So, it seems that the complacence, ignorance, and relativism of my fellow countrymen has allowed the Prince of Darkness to set up shop in Oklahoma, here in the very heart of the United States. Shrines to evil such as we are witnessing in Oklahoma City do more than just generate controversy and press. It invites an evil clientele who is filled with malice and hate towards all that is good.  Openly allowing this kind of evil in our homeland will release untold numbers of demons in the region.”  Read More:…

Despite repeated requests to City officials, the September Event is Still Scheduled.

On the event ticket website, it is described as follows, “A Religious Black Mass will be conducted as a public event to help educate the public about Religious Satanism. “Enjoy the delights of the Devil.” The ritual has been toned down to meet the laws of Oklahoma and the rules of the government building.  


Archbishop Coakley of Oklahoma City, has implored city organizers, especially the board members of the Civic Center, to intervene and stop the Black Mass from taking place. “It is hard to imagine the Civic Center turning a blind eye and allowing a group to use its facilities to burn a copy of the Koran, or to conduct an overtly anti-Semitic performance. We're astonished and grieved that the Civic Center would promote as entertainment and sell tickets for an event that is very transparently a blasphemous mockery of the Mass," Coakley said in a statement, as reported by The Oklahoman. The 'Black Mass' that is scheduled for the Civic Center in September is a satanic inversion and distortion of the most sacred beliefs not only of Catholics, but of all Christians."  

"In a spirit of hope, I ask those who are allowing this event to reconsider whether this is an appropriate use of public space. We trust that community leaders — and, in particular, the board members of the Oklahoma City Civic Center — do not actually wish to enable or encourage such a flagrantly inflammatory event and can surely remedy this situation."

Contact OK City mayor Mick Cornett at mayor@okc.gov. Jim Brown, General Manager of the OK City Civic Center can be contacted at 405-297-2584.

 EVIL TRIUMPHS 
WHEN GOOD MEN DO NOTHING!!!
If this is not challenged and allowed to take place in Oklahoma, similar occult events will spread to other areas.  Adam Daniels, sex offender, and member of the Dakhma of Angra Mainyu, has stated: "I'm renting a small space one time a year to educate the public about my religion. This is protected by my First Amendment Right as a citizen of the United States, not a brainwashed sheep of the Catholic Empire." The Civic Center is owned by the city and funded by a foundation that includes a city government official and the head of a Catholic hospital on its board.


 

The event has been condemned by the Archbishop of Oklahoma City. (Fr. Z’s Blog.) described him as a high priest of a local satanic group. Daniels told The Oklahoman in a recent interview that a Black Mass contains similar themes to a Catholic Mass, however instead of worshipping God, participants worship Satan. and I will be presiding over this rite. Daniels stated that before each ritual he will lecture on the purpose and point of each ritual as it pertains to the Ahrimanic [Satanic] Faith. Daniels claims he is merely exercising his First Amendment Right as a citizen to educate the public about his “religion”. He emphatically denies being “a brainwashed sheep of the Catholic Empire.”
The Archbishop also expressed concern about the “dark powers” the event would invite into the community “and the spiritual danger that this poses to all who are involved in it, directly or indirectly.” Even though the black mass is being billed as entertainment, “this Satanic ritual is deadly serious,” he said. “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.”

Asking Lucifer to Possess Him
The abridged Black Mass is taken from the Satanic Rituals by [Anton] LaVey. It will be followed by The Choke a local band. After that, Matthew Garman will have a Satanic (Ahrimanic) Exorcism done which purports to remove the Holy Spirit from him.  Note that he is asking for Lucifer, who mimics the Holy Spirit in the world to possess him.

An exorcist warns those who plan to attend!
An  anonymous, exorcist, told Aleteia last month that even those who attend out of curiosity are putting themselves in grave danger. I suspect that some people will go simply to be entertained. What they may not realize immediately is that simply by going, they will open themselves to the power of the demonic. The mere fact that this black mass in Oklahoma City will be public lends it a certain legitimacy. You cannot attend such an event—even if one does so merely out of curiosity, and not with any firm desire to worship Satan—without being adversely affected,” the priest said.


A Stolen Consecrated Host was obtained for this event
 
“I’m sick of hearing about this ‘Consecrated Host,’” Daniels told Aleteia. “As my understudy has told other Catholic Inquisitors, the Eucharist was mailed to us by a friend. That is all I’m going to say about how it was attained. My question is, why is a piece of bread that some man said some words over so sacred?”
Lucifer knows that Jesus is in the Consecrated Hosts.  So Satanist are inspired to steal hosts from the Catholic Church. They do not go after hosts in the protestant denominations because they know that the real presence is not contained within them. They want Jesus not a symbol.  


 Black Mass the Ultimate Sacrilege
The Fatima Message urged us to atone for Sacrileges against the Holy Eucharist
  

 Most Holy Trinity, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, I adore You profoundly, and I offer You the Most Precious Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of Jesus Christ, present in all the tabernacles of the world, in reparation for the outrages, sacrileges and indifferences by which He is offended  and by the infinite merits of His most Sacred Heart and the Immaculate Heart of Mary, I beg the conversion of poor sinners.

 
Since this Black Mass will occur in a public place it will be toned down from what they do at a private event because of  public decency laws. I cannot write what they do to the host when the black Mass is not toned down.  It is too horrible to even think about it. Knowing what takes place I am astounded at the patience of God that he allows such evils without manifesting his sovereign power and destroying them all. It is a mystery that God allows himself to be crucified again and again by Humans who he has allowed free will to choose to do so.

The  is the same Evil spirit with Stalin, Hitler, Nero, and all the other tyrants in History. they died but Lucifer passses from one man to the next. He is paving the  soil the way for the advent of the antichrist.  This is the same evil spirit that Is now with Isis and putting Christians to death. Including children. See: Iraq: What's the big deal?Here's the big deal: From the Hisrch Files Blog


See those three guns?  One of them shot this kid in the head shortly after this picture
This is te same evil spirit with al the evil movements in History. The horriblereality now is we see the killings it is not hidden from us like the gas chambers but Governments are doing nothing. The well-funded ISIS has taken the initiative to start killing the Christians.  This included the kids.
And not only are they killing the non-Muslim kids, but they're beheading them, too.  Isn't that nice?  Click for  more photos
  A slippery slope
What a slippery slope we have fallen down in society since the 1950’s,  the “Leave it to Beaver,” generation. Who could have imagined the things taking place today back then?  Ignorance and complacency are to blame to some extent but it is much deeper. Our sins personal and as a society have lulled us into a spiritual stupor.  I believe we are in that time spoken of in 2 Thesolonians 2:10-12 and with all the deception of wickedness for those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth so as to be saved. 11 For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie 12 in order that they all may be judged who did not believe the truth, but took pleasure in wickedness.

Letter from Paul S. Coakley, Archbishop of Oklahoma City
  
August 06, 2014 (Zenit.org) - Here is the text of an open letter released by Archbishop Paul Coakley of Oklahoma City, regarding a black mass planned for September in the city.

August 4, 2014
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.
In spite of repeated requests, there has been no indication that the City intends to prevent this event from taking place.  I have raised my concerns with city officials 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 the Catholic faith.  I am especially concerned about the dark powers that this Satanic worship invites into our community and the spiritual danger that this poses to all who are involved in it, directly or indirectly.  Since it seems this event will not be cancelled, I am calling on all Catholics of the Archdiocese of Oklahoma City to counteract this challenge to faith and decency through prayer and penance.
Specifically, I am asking that the Prayer to St. Michael the Archangel be included at the conclusion of every Mass, beginning on the Feast of the Transfiguration of the Lord (August 6) and continuing through the Feast of the Archangels (September 29).  I invite 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, I am asking that each parish conduct a Eucharistic Holy Hour with Benediction to honor Christ’s Real Presence in the Holy Eucharist, between the Solemnity of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary (August 15) and September 21, to avert this proposed sacrilege.
Finally, I invite all Catholics, Christians and people of good will to join me in prayer for a Holy Hour, outdoor Eucharistic Procession and Benediction at St. Francis of Assisi Church in Oklahoma City at 3:00 p.m. on Sunday, September 21, the day of the proposed sacrilege.  We will pray to avert this sacrilege and 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 printable version of the Prayer to St. Michael the Archangel is available in English, Spanish and Vietnamese on the archdiocesan website (www.archokc.org).  If you have not yet done so, I urge you to contact the Office of the Mayor, the Honorable Mick Cornett, to express your outrage over this offensive and blasphemous sacrilege and this misuse of a tax-supported public space.
Commending our efforts to the Lord through the loving intercession of Mary, the Mother of God, I am
Sincerely yours in Christ,
Most Reverend Paul S. Coakley Archbishop of Oklahoma City

Bishop Slattery Bishop of Tulsa 
Asks for 9 days Fast from Meat

You may be reading this too late to join the fast called for by the Bishops in Oklahoma.  You may want to consider joining them for any 9 day period before the event scheduled for September 21. Really this is so crucial a spiritual battle with eternal life and death consequences. if this succeeds here we will soon be fighting this same type of event in our own cities. If it is put down they will also try somewhere else until it takes place. Nowhere is exempt. Let us not be complacent and say it is there battle it is all of ours.   In the black Mass the spirit of evil is desecrating Our Lord but it will also soon lead to what is happening in Iraq today the killing of Christians. It is the same evil spirit in both battles. The same spirit with Hitler. It is because Christians have accepted the lie.  Iraq: What's the big deal? From the Hirsh File Blog


“If you want to be relevant, you will take up this fast. If you fall into complacency like everyone else, you can expect the number of demonic possessions to start rising in Oklahoma. Tell everyone you know. You, the laity—and even you Protestants—have been waiting for something you can do to directly counter this evil that is spreading in our land. This is what you do. This period of fasting and prayer is our direct assault. Let us take up a nine day fast from meat, and pray the rosary and prayer to Saint Michael the Archangel every day that you abstain. Take note of Assumption Day, and if you are in the area, attend Holy Family Cathedral on the 15th of August”  From the Hirsch Files Blog  


A letter from Bishop Slattery Bishop of Tulsa

My Dear People:

As has been widely reported, a Satanic Black Mass has been scheduled for September 21 in Oklahoma City’s Civic Center. As a part of Satanic worship, a Black Mass attempts to invert the action and meaning of the Eucharist in order to mock Christ’s sacrifice and worship Satan through an orgiastic ritual of pain and perversion. It blasphemes everything which we hold as sacred and redemptive; and the spiritual dangers it poses ought not be dismissed. Since the Civic Center has not responded positively to the pleas of the Archbishop of Oklahoma City not to host this event in a tax-payer supported public venue, I am asking the faithful Catholics in the Diocese of Tulsa to fight this blasphemy through prayer and fasting:

Please keep the nine days prior to the Feast of the Assumption as an extraordinary period of prayer and penance. I am asking every Catholic to abstain from all meat and meat products from August 6 through the 14th. I am also asking that you consecrate your hunger with a daily recitation of a decade of the rosary and the familiar Prayer to Saint Michael.  Printed copies of these prayers are available in the bulletin and at the entrances of the church. Be strong and encourage your friends to also be strong.

On Assumption Day, August 15th, we will ask Our Lady on her Feast, to intercede for us and protect us. On that day I in the Cathedral, and every priest in his own parish, will pray a special prayer written by Pope Leo XIII for the defense of the Church against the attack of the Enemy and his apostate angels.

Should these prayers and this period of fasting not effect the cancellation of this event, then I will ask every priest in the Diocese to conduct a Eucharistic Holy Hour on September 21 at the same time (7:00 p.m.) as this profanity is being celebrated in Oklahoma City. Wherever possible, I ask that Eucharistic Processions - especially outdoor processions - be arranged as part of these holy hours. Let us give a public witness to our faith in the Eucharist which is being so profoundly mocked and ridiculed by this event.

From the snares of the devil, deliver us, O Lord!

Sincerely yours in Christ,

Most Rev. Edward J. Slattery
Bishop of Tulsa
