First, an inept Oklahoma state government bungled their way into allowing a statue of Lucifer to soon be placed at our capitol. And now, once again in the very public square of our state, stolen property from the Catholic Church will be publicly vandalized and desecrated by a registered sex offender with the official approval of the moral relativists running our tax-funded Oklahoma City Civic Center. 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.
And so, what does it matter if another religion makes a public spectacle, namely with stolen Church property? How does this bother anyone? Well, in this time that we live where Christians are slaughtered in diverse places, the long-term outcome is not hard to imagine.
One day, the time will come when Satan shall exercise his temporal power in the West. Christians will become persecuted, attacked, and killed—just as they are in China, Iraq, Nigeria, Lebanon, and many other less reported locales.
The last thing the remaining good people of America—and specifically Oklahoma—should want is to have Satan Central in the middle of our territory. 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.
Laity can participate in fighting this spiritual battle. Prayer can work. Bishop Slattery of the Tulsa diocese has put forth his plan to combat this spreading evil, and we act this Wednesday.

A letter from Bishop Slattery
Countering with Prayer the proposed Black Mass in Oklahoma City
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

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.
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.
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.
