Response to Black Mass in Ottawa


 .
 “The problem isn't  that the devil has upped his game, but more people are willing to play it,” an exorcist once told me.
            Such was the case in Ottawa, Canada this weekend when a black mass was held by the Satanic Temple of Ottawa at a heavy metal bar called The Koven.

 As the season for picnics, watermelon, and modesty articles winds down, there is one article that I do not want you to miss.
In  Slut Shaming in the Adoration Chapel, Larry Denninger shared an incident in his parish’s adoration chapel.

Go Ahead and Be a Martha

          “Don’t be a Maratha,” we are told, referring to the story of Mary and Martha in the New Testament.   Can you imagine such a thing?  I would not like it if people went around saying, “Don’t be a Patti.”. 
That is what came of Martha’s worrying about getting tasks done for her guests while her sister Mary simply sat and listened to Jesus.

House Chaplain Casts Out Evil


Fr. Pat Convoy, screen shot capture from C-Span 
It was not an exorcism but the Chaplain of the House of Representatives, Father Patrick Convoy prayed to “cast out all spirits of darkness” on Thursday after tensions flared during debates. 
“Let us pray,” he began. “We give you thanks, Oh God, for giving us another day. This has been a difficult and contentious week in which darker spirits seem to have been at play in the people’s house.”

Co-opting Blessed Mother Demands Reparation



From Poland to the U.S., the Blessed Mother is being used in blasphemous ways.  By imposing rainbow flags onto her images, she is being co-opted by LGBT activists.
           In April, there was furor in Poland over a rainbow Madonna that led to the arrest of an LBGT activist for appropriating a sacred image considered a national treasure with the LGBT rainbow colors.

Wife, Mother, Assistant to an Exorcist

After starting a load of laundry, sweeping her kitchen floor, and sitting down to read, Maria (not her real name) answered her phone. It was her bishop.  Someone thinks he might be possessed. Could she give him a call?

Ex-Satanist That Built Basilica, Shows No One Beyond God’s Mercy


It would seem that being raised by devout Catholic parents who prayed the rosary daily would have pointed to a good and holy future for Bartolo Longo. And it did.  Eventually. First, he strayed so far from God that he became a satanic priest.

#SexStrike and #MeToo, 2 Sides of Same Coin

          
 

Wait a minute, I thought the #MeToo movement made it clear that it's not okay for men to pressure women for sex in exchange for giving the women what they want? But it's okay for women to use sex to get what they want?  Actress Alyssa Milano thinks so.

Pro-life Response to Aggressive Abortion Moves

  Abortion advocates have shown us their hand. They are even more heartless than we imagined.  Their commitment to end the lives of babies was made clear when New York legalized abortions right up to birth, Vermont and Rhode Island also passed radical abortion and infanticide laws, and other states are attempting to do the same.

Irish prayers for Families and Spiritual Strength



              I write this on St. Patrick’s Day, but 
these are three beautiful Irish prayers for spiritual strength and protection all year round.  
           I’ve adapted the first two for families (replacing “this child” with “our children” in the first one, and “you” with “our children” in the second.) The third prayer, I pray daily for spiritual protection. Interviewing exorcists and writing against false apparitions has shown me it’s a powerful prayer.
