The Consecrated Host is back in the hands of Archbishop Coakley and the Catholic Church.

Deo Gratias!

Additionally, the Satanists have agreed to sign a statement saying that they will not use a Consecrated Host in a black mass – if it happens.

Talk about a great victory!

I work in politics. There are many important battles on Capitol Hill, in our federal courts, and at the ballot box.

But I’ll be totally honest: This victory is perhaps the most important one of them all!

The Satanists thought they had us against the ropes. It’s a public forum and we couldn’t stop them from performing their “ceremony.” They even went so far as to brag about having a Consecrated Host!

But that’s where they crossed the line.

Our friend, attorney Michael Caspino, sprung into action. Lifted by the prayers of Catholics all across the country – and with the support of Archbishop Coakley — Caspino fought back against the Satanists in court.

And we won. We won for Jesus.

The Satanists might still hold a black mass, but promised that they won’t do so with a Consecrated Host. So let’s continue praying to Saint Michael, in thanksgiving for his powerful intercession.

Says Host Cannot Be Damaged or Taken From Oklahoma City Pending Hearing

WASHINGTON, D.C., August 21, 2014 (Zenit.org) – Archbishop Paul Coakley of Oklahoma City on Wednesday filed a lawsuit asking a judge to halt the desecration of a Eucharistic Host as part of a planned satanic black mass scheduled for September in the city’s Civic Center.

District Court Judge Bryan Dixon responded the same day with a restraining order, enjoining the leader of the satanic association from “concealing, damaging, destroying or removing from Oklahoma City the personal property,” pending a hearing.

The archbishop’s lawsuit is based on the premise that the host to be used for the black mass is stolen.

Attorney Michael W. Caspino told The National Catholic Register, “Our legal theory is very simple: a Consecrated Eucharist belongs to the Church.

“The Church has exercised dominion and control over the Eucharist for 2000 years. The Satanists procured the Consecrated Host by illicit means, by theft or fraud. We are simply asking the Court to return the stolen property to its rightful owner, the Roman Catholic Church.”  

The black mass leader, Adam Daniels, a defendant on the restraining order, told the news site Aleteia earlier this month that the urported Eucharistic Host was “mailed to us by (a) friend.”

“As far as I know, the host mailed to me is consecrated,” he said.

The black mass is scheduled for Sept. 21.

Prayer and penance

Archbishop Coakley said he’s been “heartened by the international and multifaith support we’ve received in solidarity against this public satanic ritual planned next month in Oklahoma City.”

“Catholics believe Jesus Christ is truly present under the form of bread and wine in the Holy Eucharist and it is the source and summit of our faith. The local organizers of this satanic inversion intend to use a stolen consecrated Host obtained illicitly from a Catholic church to desecrate it as a sacrifice to Satan. Through this legal action, I hope to prevent desecration of the Host and to have it rightly returned to the Church.”

Archbishop Coakley has made repeated requests for the city’s leaders to cancel the satanic ritual in a publicly funded facility, but has received no indication that the city intends to prevent the event from taking place.

“I have raised my concerns … and pointed out how deeply offensive this proposed sacrilegious act is to Christians and especially to the more than 250,000 Catholics who live in Oklahoma. I am certainly concerned about the misuse of a publicly supported facility for an event which has no other purpose than mocking Catholic faith,” the archbishop wrote in a letter to priests earlier this month. “I am calling on all Catholics of the Archdiocese of Oklahoma City to counteract this challenge to faith and decency through prayer and penance.”

Archbishop Coakley continues to call on the faithful to pray the Prayer to St. Michael the Archangel at the end of every Mass through Sept. 29, and asks that each parish conduct a Eucharistic Holy Hour with Benediction before Sept. 21.

On the day of the satanic ritual, if not canceled, the archbishop invites all Christians and people of good will to join him in prayer for a Holy Hour at 3 p.m. at St. Francis of Assisi Church, followed by an outdoor Procession and Benediction.

“For more than 1 billion Catholics worldwide, 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.”

Questions I Answered on Catholic Answers Live

by Steve Ray on August 20, 2014

Here is the link to listen on-line. Here is a link for other listening options like a podcast.

1. When Catholics are promoting celibacy and chastity to homosexuals, are there different guidelines depending on if the messenger is gay or straight, married or single?

2. Why do Catholics feel it is necessary to confess their sins to a priest instead of just to God?

3. Where do Catholics get their Bible?

4. I’m a Lutheran, fallen-away Catholic. I fell away because I feel that Catholics give too much emphasis to Mary.

5. I’m a former Catholic and wondering: If the Catholic Church keeps changing its teaching over the years, how can it be the one true Church?

6. I have a dilemma. I teach classes at my Evangelical church, starting a series on the Catholic Church, BUT I find myself agreeing with the Church on most things. Where can I go to learn more and should I teach the class?

7. The book of Hebrews says that “Christ died once for all.” How does that mesh with the teaching that the Mass is truly Christ’s Body and Blood being sacrificed over and over again?
