With the rapid degradation of morals, the overturning of common sense and natural law, and the dissolution of civil rule of law in these USA we are seeing – and this is not a surprise – a rise of open invocation of the Enemy of the Soul.
The spiritual war is becoming more open war. The dupes of the Enemy sense that their time is coming and they are emboldened.
It is time for bishops and priests to get out the older, traditional copies of the Rituale Romanum and consider using its powerful and effective rites, including and especially Title XI, ch. 3. Let’s have processions and public recitation of litanies.
Let’s get back to the traditional ways of making reparation and asking for God’s blessings.
And to prepare… let’s GO TO CONFESSION.
Let’s stop fooling around. Let’s dust off the serious spiritual tools of our Catholic Faith.
I saw this, from Archbp. Coakley of Oklahoma City. HERE
Archbishop Coakley on planned “Black Mass” at Civic Center:
“We are astonished and grieved by this proposed sacrilegious event”
OKLAHOMA CITY (July 1, 2014) –A ticketed “Black Mass” is slated to occur Sept. 21 at the Oklahoma City Civic Center, according to the Civic Center website.
Today, Archbishop Paul Coakley expressed his astonishment and disappointment at this event and called on community leaders to reconsider whether it is an appropriate use of public space.
“For more than 1 billion Catholics worldwide and more than 200,000 Catholics in Oklahoma, the Mass is the most sacred of religious rituals,” the archbishop said. “It is the center of Catholic worship and celebrates Jesus Christ’s redemption of the world by his death and resurrection. In particular, the Eucharist – which we believe to be the body, blood, soul and divinity of Jesus Christ – is the source and summit of our faith.
“That’s why 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,” he continued. “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.
“If the event does move forward, we will have to consider other peaceful, prayerful and respectful options to demonstrate our opposition to this publicly supported sacrilegious act.
“In the meantime, I call on all Catholics in central and western Oklahoma – as well as all men and women of good will – to pray for a renewed sense of the sacred and, in particular, to pray that the Lord might change the hearts and minds of the organizers of this event.”
I do not think that outrage and holy anger need to be restricted to the people of Oklahoma.
Today, on this Feast of the Precious Blood, dear readers, please consider what acts of reparation you might engage in for even the consideration of such an event.
