Have you heard about this?

I heard about it on Women of Grace last week, but caught the tail end of the story and didn’t know the details… namely that it is taking place at a major American University, tomorrow night at 8:30.
Apparently, the “Black Mass” takes the actual verbiage and rubrics of the Catholic Mass and makes a mockery of them, removing the names of God, Christ, and the saints, and replacing them with those of Satan and his demons. They really love it when they have a consecrated Host to defile, though they’ve said that will not occur in this particular case. They often use the body of a naked woman as the altar.
Every Christian – Catholic or not – should be deeply offended by this. In fact, it’s not just Christians. Can you imagine the outcry if a mockery of a Muslim prayer service were to be performed? All those of faith should be horrified, and should voice their disgust!
Please take a moment to sign the petition against this abomination, here. After you do that, you’ll see a phone number and email address for the President of Harvard. Take a moment to give him a call and send him an email. Call on Monday, though. You can’t leave a message if you call today (Sunday). I tried.
Here are a few other ideas of things you might do in reparation and prayer that this farce will not take place:
- Fast tomorrow. I mean a hard fast. This is serious business. A wise woman recently told me that her mom used to fast from hot showers and crossing her legs when she sat. Add those in!
- Pray the St. Michael prayer every waking hour until you go to bed tomorrow night.
St. Michael the Archangel,
defend us in battle.
Be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil.
May God rebuke him, we humbly pray;
and do Thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Host –
by the Divine Power of God –
cast into hell, Satan and all the evil spirits,
who roam throughout the world seeking the ruin of souls.
3. Spend time before the Blessed Sacrament, adoring Our Lord. In fact, I would love to flood the adoration chapels during this “Black Mass”, at 8:30pm EST tomorrow night.
4. Pray the Chaplet of Divine Mercy.
5. Pray the Rosary.
May God Have Mercy on Us and On the Whole World.
