Consecrated Host Returned; ‘Black Mass’ Still Planned

OKLAHOMA CITY (CNS) – A stolen consecrated host that was at the center of a lawsuit filed by Archbishop Paul S. Coakley and intended for use at a planned Satanic “black mass” in Oklahoma City has been returned.

According to the Archdiocese of Oklahoma City, an attorney representing the head of the satanic group presented the host to a Catholic priest the afternoon of Aug. 21.

With the return of the host and an accompanying signed statement from the satanic group leader that the group no longer possesses a consecrated host, nor will they use a consecrated host in their rituals, the Oklahoma City archbishop agreed to dismiss the lawsuit.

Archbishop Coakley filed suit Aug. 20 to get the host returned after the Satanic group’s leader made several public statements that its members planned “to defile and desecrate” it during a “black mass” scheduled for Sept. 21 at the Civic Center Music Hall in Oklahoma City.

“I am relieved that we have been able to secure the return of the sacred host, and that we have prevented its desecration as part of a planned Satanic ritual,” the archbishop said in a statement.

In early August, Archbishop Coakley asked more than 250,000 Catholics in Oklahoma to offer prayer and penance to prevent the Satanic group Dakhma of Angra Mainyu from holding a “black mass.”

One thought on “Consecrated Host Returned; ‘Black Mass’ Still Planned

  1. Consecrated hosts look exactly like un-consecrated hosts, and it’s easy for anyone to obtain the latter online. Totally possible then that the Satanists returned an UN-consecrated host, and not the other, in order to avoid the law suit. GIven the way Mass is said nowadays, it’s very easy for ANYONE to steal a consecrated host. At one time the priest placed these on the tongue of the recipient. Now they often go into the hand of the recipient, and no priest stands there to make sure it’s consumed.
