Update: Sacred Host Stolen for "Black Mass"

Satanists announce plan to desecrate stolen Host at "Black Mass" in Oklahoma City.
I know you care enough to help stop this outrage, so please read on...

Thank you so much for signing the petition to stop the satanic "Black Mass" in Oklahoma.

Your voice helped us reach 50,000 protest petitions...

And you'll like this update:

Archbishop Coakley of Oklahoma City and Bishop Slattery of Tulsa are now urging public officials to cancel the "Black Mass," calling on all Catholics to pray and fast to halt this abomination.

The Governor of Oklahoma, the Hon. Mary Fallin, also issued a strong statement condemning it.

You see, reports confirm that satanist Adam Daniels has obtained a stolen Consecrated Host to desecrate and attack in the most vile and unspeakable manner imaginable.
(Aleteia.org -- August 6, 2014)

However, the Civic Center hosting this attack against Our Lord claims they can't lift a finger -- nothing at all -- to stop the public desecration of the Blessed Sacrament.

That's why you and I must continue to "storm Heaven" with prayer and keep the peaceful protest growing even more.

Not just a little more. But MUCH more.  With more public outrage.

So the new goal is 100,000 protest petitions by Sept. 21.  And I'm counting on you to invite your friends to sign it today.

SIGN PETITION

I'm also pleased to report that a large team of young volunteers are preparing to drive to Oklahoma (2,620 miles there and back) and stage a prayerful act of reparation right in front of the Civic Center where the sacrilege is planned.

Our Lady’s friends from Kansas decided to charter a bus to join them. Many others will be there too.

Because silence is not an option.

Get more details about the prayerful act of reparation here

You're invited to join us on Sept. 21. I really hope you can come.

If you can't make it to the act of reparation in person, then please consider putting some gas in our van for that important trip.

That would help a lot.

Also, your phone calls (polite & firm) could make a huge difference to stop the "Black Mass" today:

  • Oklahoma City Civic Center
    (Location of the "Black Mass" on Sept. 21)
    Call (405) 297-2584
  • Office of Oklahoma City Mayor, Mick Cornett
    Call (405) 297-2424
  • Oklahoma City Manager, Mr. James D. Couch
    Call (405) 297-2345
  • Governor of Oklahoma, The Hon. Mary Fallin
    Call (405) 521-2342

We must continue to fight so that America will truly be one nation under God.

You see, when government officials treat evil as good and good as evil, they put the common good of society and culture on a direct path to self-destruction. There is no moral equivalency between a Mozart concert and a "Black Mass."

Satan has no rights. Period.

Again, thank you so much for defending the honor of Our Lord Jesus Christ and for raising your voice to oppose this grave evil.

Let's continue fighting the good fight with renewed certainty that the gates of hell will never prevail.

How the Blessed Mother influenced the little Fatima shepherds and how She acts upon mankind

Excerpt from John de Marchi’s book "The Lady More Brilliant than the Sun":

"The real spiritual director of Jacinta, Francisco and Lucia was essentially Our Lady. The kind Lady of the Cova da Iria took on the responsibility of this masterpiece and, as could only be, succeeded totally. From her prodigious hands came three angels in the flesh, but I who were also three true heroes. The raw material was admirably elastic, and of the Artist what can one say? In her spiritual school the three little shepherds gave gigantic steps in the way of perfection in a short time. In her were precisely confirmed the words of a great devotee of Mary St. Louis de Montfort: In the school of the Virgin, the soul progresses more in one week than one year outside this school. The pedagogy of the Mother of God did not find obstacles. In two years the Most Holy Virgin was able to raise both brother and sister - Francisco and Jacinta - to the most elevated heights of Christian sanctity. The picture that the trustworthy account of Lucia makes of Jacinta is revealing: “Jacinta always had a demeanour that was serious, modest, and amiable. Everything she did seemed imbued with a presence of God that was more proper to those of greater age and of advanced virtue. I never saw in her that exaggerated levity and enthusiasm for ornaments and games proper to children.

“The other children did not run up to her as they did to me. This was probably due to her serious demeanour which was far greater than would be normal for her age. If a child, or even an adult, said or did something in her presence that was in the least inconvenient, she would reprimand them saying: ‘Do not do this because you offend God, Our Lord, and He said that He is already much offended'.”

Commentary of Prof. Plinio Corrêa de Oliveira:

This excerpt is full of blessing because it indicates to us a series of aspects, great and small, about the work of Our Lady with these three children.

First of all we should consider the symbolic value of Our Lady’s action upon the children. It would be a mistake to think that this action was only upon the three children. It is, an action that gently transformed these children, from one moment to the next, simply through the repeated apparitions of Our Lady...

We are dealing here with something similar to what St. Louis de Montfort speaks of in his work The Secret of Mary. This is one of those profound actions of grace in a soul. These are actions that take place without the person realizing, who finds it increasingly easier to practice virtue, and his defects that hamper and tie him to bad things are gradually dissolved.

In this way the person increases in the love of God. His desire to dedicate himself more increases, as does his opposition to sin. Now, all this takes place marvelously in the soul without the great and methodic battles associated with the ascent to Heaven, virtue, and sanctity of those who struggle according the classic spiritual way. Here Our Lady changed them from almost one moment to the next.

If such were the action of Our Lady in Fatima, especially in regards to these two children called to Heaven, we can rightly ask if this does not also have a symbolic meaning indicating how Our Lady’s action over the whole of humanity will be when She fulfils the promises made during the Fatima apparitions...

Should we not then see here a beginning of the Reign of Mary as being a triumph of Her Immaculate Heart in two souls who preached the great message of Our Lady?

Through their sacrifices and prayers on Earth, and now with their prayers in Heaven, Blessed Francisco and Jacinta help enormously for souls to accept the Fatima message.

This first consideration leads me to say that if this is so, then Blessed Francisco and Jacinta are naturally the intercessors to ask and obtain from Our Lady the beginning of the Reign of Mary in all of us immediately through this mysterious transformation which is the Secret of Mary.

We should then ask insistently Blessed Jacinta and Francisco to begin to transform us. To grant us the gifts they received and to watch over and to pray for those who have the mission of preaching and living the message of Fatima ...

Through the intercession of Blessed Francisco and Jacinta, let us beseech Our Lady: Let your Reign come unto us, but, O Lady, let your Reign come unto us urgently!

Important Statements Against the Satanic Sacrilege
From Archbishop Paul Coakley:
"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."  (Full statement here)

From Bishop Edward Slattery:
"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."  (Full statement here)


From Governor Mary Fallin:
“This 'Black Mass' is a disgusting mockery of the Catholic faith, and it should be equally repellent to Catholics and non-Catholics alike," said the Hon. Mary Fallin, Governor of Oklahoma.  "It is shocking and disgusting that a group of New York City ‘satanists’ would travel all the way to Oklahoma to peddle their filth here.  I pray they realize how hurtful their actions are and cancel this event.”  (Full statement here)



PRAYER

St. Michael the Archangel,
defend us in battle.
Be our defense against the wickedness and snares of the Devil.
May God rebuke him, we humbly pray,
and do thou,
O Prince of the heavenly hosts,
by the power of God,
thrust into hell Satan,
and all the evil spirits,
who prowl about the world
seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.

Taking the Fatima Message Seriously

 

by Michael Whitcraft

Meet-the-Witnesses-Our-Lady-of-Fatima-1917

America Needs Fatima has just republished John Haffert’s 1960 book, Meet the Witnesses, which contains the most complete collection of eyewitness testimonies to the Miracle of the Sun, in Fatima, ever made.

In an era of rationalism and doubt, this is the book’s unique contribution to the many volumes written on Fatima. However, since the unfortunate death of Sister Lucy in 2005, Meet the Witnesses has become even timelier.

For decades, Sister Lucia’s very presence within the cloistered walls of her convent had reminded millions of Fatima and Our Lady’s requests: daily recitation of the rosary, sacrifice for the conversion of sinners, abandonment of sin, the Five First Saturdays devotion and reparation for the offenses committed against her Immaculate Heart. Sister Lucy’s presence also reminded Catholics worldwide of the chastisement that Our Lady predicted would ensue if her requests were not heeded.

Despite this reminder, people did not reform their lives. A consideration of the general decline of morals since 1917 begs the question: “Will the world have to be chastised before people will change?”

If so, it is good to think back to October 13, 1917. Three months earlier Our Lady had promised Lucy a miracle “so that all might see and believe.” The news had spread throughout Portugal and over 70,000 people traveled to the Cova da Iria to see what would happen. Atheists and probably even some Catholics ridiculed the “credulous” and “gullible” pilgrims.

In spite of these chides, Our Lady did work a miracle. Though some may have expected wonderful cures like those she worked at Lourdes, Our Lady astonished the crowd with a miracle so terrifying that many thought the end of the world had come.

The sun unexpectedly spun all over the sky and even plummeted towards the earth. Professor Plinio Corrêa de Oliveira, founder of the first TFP, wondered if the Miracle of the Sun might not indicate the magnitude of the chastisement unrepentant mankind is bringing on itself. Might other things “spiral” out of control and threaten the world with total destruction?

To encourage reflection on this miracle and hence on the Fatima message, we are now offering Meet the Witnesses. The personal accounts it contains bring the Miracle of the Sun to life. They vividly project the image of the sun spinning in the sky and nearly crashing to earth. They cause readers today to echo the cry of the witnesses. In the depths of their souls, they too exclaim, “We believe!” Today, the book has become even more valuable, since God has called to Himself most of the witnesses Mr. Haffert interviewed.

Meet the Witnesses invites everyone to prepare diligently for serious trials in a world that deserves divine punishment. It challenges each one to strengthen his faith, increase his love and proclaim his unshakable certainty in Mary’s promise: “Finally, My Immaculate Heart will triumph!”
