“Proud Lucifer next to the Christmas Crib — NO thanks!”

These words of protest gained national attention. All eyes turned to Old Town Spring in Texas. Locals and visitors alike voiced their outrage. The ‘Greater Church of Lucifer’ was to open its doors in the middle of this busy shopping area.

Their goal? To make the occult and Luciferianism more acceptable. In an area known to be frequented by families for Christmas shopping, a ‘church’ was to open promoting devotion to the Father of Lies.

 

 

As word spread that the opening day coincided with the end of October, America Needs Fatima volunteers sprang into action. More than 21,500 people signed an online petition asking the intervention of Texas Governor Greg Abbott and other officials.

“God Yes! Satan No!” “We reject Satan and his works.” “Mary Queen of Angels, Crush Lucifer’s Head!” No one could miss these messages.

Dozens of signs were held by young and old alike. Catholics came together from near and far to oppose the public acceptance of the infernal enemy.

 

Standing For Christ or Against Him

Friday, October 30, 2015, the opening day for the ‘Greater Church of Lucifer,’ great numbers of Ten Commandment Americans came to oppose this satanic foothold in the community. At noon, two dozen gathered to pray the rosary in reparation. A woman walked out from a palm-reading and aromatherapy business and began circling the protesters with incense. A Catholic woman came right behind her sprinkling water from Lourdes. The two of them engaged in an argument, after which the woman with the incense left. The rosary continued, followed by singing of the hymn We Want God.

Three sisters who grew up in Spring, TX came from different parts of the country to oppose the Luciferian ‘church.’ Intending to purchase some fabric from a local shop, the eldest was outraged to learn the proprietors supported the occultists. “I will no longer buy any fabric from there. Never again!” she shouted. Reactions from business owners left no middle ground: ardent supporters of the protesters, or ardent supporters of the Luciferians.

At 5pm, over 120 gathered for the protest organized by America Needs Fatima. TFP members in ceremonial habit processed with the statue of Our Lady of Fatima. Mr. Thomas Drake of TFP-Louisiana exhorted the crowd of God-fearing Americans to echo St. Michael’s battlecry, “Who is like unto God?” A protestant tried to interrupt the protest, shouting loudly. The faithful Catholics gathered there effectively drowned him out. Prayer of the Most Holy Rosary, Mary’s great weapon against the power of hell, was interspersed with hymns accompanied by the bagpipes.

Passing motorists were forced to take a position in favor or against the protest. Many stopped to take photos, others to give a thumbs up, still others shouting profanities. The faithful Catholics prayed all the more fervently, kneeling on the pavement to pray the Total Consecration to Jesus through Mary. All then processed behind the statue of Our Lady of Fatima singing ‘Hail, Holy Queen Enthroned Above.’

A Coordinated Effort

The opening of the ‘Greater Church of Lucifer’ in Spring, TX is the latest in a series of events aimed at promoting Satanism and the occult in America. Harvard University was to host a black mass on campus in May 2014, though they cancelled due to protests and stiff resistance. In September 2014, the Oklahoma City Civic Center hosted a satanic black mass on public property despite widespread opposition. In Lake Worth, Florida, a man opened the city council meeting in December 2014 with a prayer to Satan, followed by similar attempts in other parts of the country.

In July 2015, the Satanic Temple revealed the 9-foot tall statue of Baphomet, a symbol of Satan, in the city of Detroit. The same group is pushing for the erection of similar statues on state capitol grounds in Oklahoma and Arkansas. The move is openly stated to be a direct counter to monuments honoring the Ten Commandments.

By the grace of Our Lady, America Needs Fatima has opposed all of these efforts at every step. The coordinated effort organizing Americans of good will to strongly oppose these latest attempts to honor Satan is gaining momentum. Online protests and manifestations on the ground show that Americans are willing to defend God’s honor.

Coexist?

Often the argument of ‘coexistence’ rears its ugly head. It is only logical, though, that good and evil cannot coexist. At the beginning of time, Lucifer in his arrogant pride was banished because Saint Michael rose up to boldly defend God’s honor. Far from dialoguing or coexisting, the Prince of the Heavenly Armies forcefully and emphatically expelled the evil one.

As followers of Satanism openly push for public acceptance, faithful Catholics should take Saint Michael’s example and make no compromises with evil. Our words and efforts should echo those of Christ Himself: “Be gone, Satan: the Lord thy God shalt thou adore, and Him alone shalt thou serve!” (Matt. 4:10)

In these days when the whole world is choosing to be for Christ or against Him, Americans should boldly acclaim that now and forever our land is one nation under God.

Prayer is the conversation
of a child with its Father; of a subject with his King;
of a servant with his Lord; of a friend with the Friend
to whom he confides
all his troubles and difficulties.

St. Polycarp

Polycarp, a holy man and bishop of Smyrna, was part of the group of early bishops. When heresy arose in Asia, violence toward Catholics arose with it, and Polycarp was persuaded by his friends to go into hiding.

Eventually Polycarp was found and arrested. When his persecutors arrived at his hideout, he went to them and served them a meal, asking for a short time to pray before being taken away. Polycarp was sent to trial, where his captors tempted him with freedom and tried to convince him to denounced Our Lord. “Fourscore and six years I have served Him and He hath done me no wrong,” he said, “how then can I blaspheme my King and my Savior?”

Soon after this, in the year 155, Polycarp was burnt at the stake – though there was no odor of burning flesh: instead a smell of incense was in the air. When the fire seemed to do him no harm, a spear was thrust into his side, killing him. A dove flew out of the wound, and Polycarp’s blood quenched the fire, causing part of his body to remain intact. However, his remains were later burned to ash because the heretics feared other Catholics would revere the body as a relic.

Cause of Our Joy

We are well aware Our Lady is constantly working and spreading her graces as we travel to homes with the statue of Our Lady of Fatima. On a recent visit in south Texas, we were surprised to see Our Lady’s visit to one household as the culmination of a beautiful story of grace, nine months in the making.  

Our hosts had gathered friends and neighbors from their small town on a sunny afternoon to welcome the statue of Our Lady of Fatima. As the program progressed, the lady of the house asked to tell a story about a certain grace she had received.

Two years ago, her daughter had suffered a miscarriage in her first pregnancy, which had a devastating effect on the family. This past year, the same daughter again became pregnant.  However, rather than being a cause for rejoicing, the family was apprehensive due to what had happened previously. Our hostess then explained how she and her husband vowed to take a dozen roses at the beginning of each month of the pregnancy to Our Lady’s shrine at the local parish, asking the Queen of Heaven for a safe delivery.

The florist of the town, upon hearing the story, took great care to make an extra-beautiful bouquet in honor of our Blessed Mother.

For nine months, the couple was faithful in bringing the flowers and asking Our Lady’s powerful help. To their great surprise, the final time coincided with our visit with the statue of Our Lady of Fatima.

Our hostess began to cry tears of joy in telling the story, so honored was she to have such a clear sign of the intercession of the Mother of God. She then told that the doctors all gave reports of a healthy pregnancy, and the child was due any day now. The last bouquet of roses, lovingly arranged by the town’s florist, was placed at the feet of the statue of Our Lady of Fatima in thanksgiving for a healthy pregnancy and their soon to be newborn grandchild.

We later learned that a healthy boy was born two days after the visit. Not only did Our Lady grant new life to a family who was so eager to welcome it, but she also restored the hope and strengthened the faith of this family and all who were gathered to share their joy. This easily brought to mind one of the beautiful titles of Our Lady from the Litany of Loreto: Causa nostrae letitiae, Cause of Our Joy. May Our Lady bring to the fullness of joy all who invoke her with confidence.

For the love of God, Who hast made thee so glorious in grace and power, and for the love of the Mother of Jesus, the Queen of the Angels, be pleased to hear my prayer.

Thou knowest the value of my soul in the eyes of God. May no stain of evil ever disfigure its beauty. Help me to conquer the evil spirit who tempts me.

I desire to imitate thy loyalty to God and Holy Mother Church and thy great love for God and men. And since thou art God’s messenger for the care of His people, I entrust to thee this special request:

(Here mention your request)

Saint Michael, since thou art, by the will of the Creator, the powerful intercessor of Christians, I have great confidence in thy prayers. I earnestly trust that if it is God’s holy will, my petition will be granted.

Pray for me, Saint Michael, and also for those I love. Protect us in all dangers of body and soul. Help us in our daily needs.

Through thy powerful intercession, may we live a holy life, die a happy death and reach Heaven where we may praise and love God with thee forever. Amen
