On Sunday evening, September 21, a Satanic Black Mass is scheduled to be held at the Oklahoma City Civic Center. In response to this planned blasphemy, the Most Reverend Edward J. Slattery, bishop of the Diocese of Tulsa, has issued a letter exhorting all Catholics in his diocese to participate in exercises of reverence and reparation toward the Blessed Sacrament.
Bishop Slattery’s letter asks the faithful to keep a nine-day period of abstinence from August 6 to August 14 in preparation for the Feast of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary on August 15. A special prayer to St. Michael for the defense of the Church is to be offered at Mass on Assumption Day, on which intercession for the protection of the Church will be asked of Our Lady.
If the September 21 Black Mass proceeds as scheduled, the Bishop asks parishes to conduct Holy Hours and processions of the Blessed Sacrament on that evening to honor Our Eucharistic Lord against whom the sacrilege of the planned Satanic event is directed.
