Spiritual Gems-Developing a Personal Relationship with the Holy Spirit is Essential

Developing a Personal Relationship with the HolySpirit is Essential

The Holy Spirit is the Third Person of the Blessed Trinity,  the Person of Divine Love.  The Father and Son love one another with an infinite love and this love is a Person,  the Holy Spirit.  He is called a Spiritbecause He proceeds from the Father and Son.  He is the bond of Love and Union between the Father and the Son.

To the Holy Spirit are especially attributed the

works of the Holy Trinity about Love, that is to say the sharing of Divine Life....Grace....and the infusion of the spiritual gifts which lead to our holiness...our being more like God through the merits of Jesus Christ. This is why He is called the Divine Sanctifier.  "No man can say Jesus is Lord except by the Holy Spirit."

  The first and all-important fact is that when we are in a state of Grace, the Holy Spirit is really, truly and personally in our souls as He is in Heaven.  He so desires to pour out His Gifts and Graces but He can not do this without our cooperation...we must correspond to His Love.  But how can we do this if we do not know Him and His Gifts and Fruits; if we do not speak and pray to Him; and if we do not know Him as a Person?  This is why so few Christians advance in holiness....they do not know the Divine Sanctifier. Our Mother is the Spouse of the Holy Spirit and will begin this process if we ask her sincerely and constantly to know her Spouse!  Include this request each time you pray, especially the Rosary!

September 2014 Monthly Message from Anne, a lay apostle

Direction for Our Times


We continue our cycle of monthly messages for 2014 with the message from September 1, 2006 for our prayer groups and personal reflection.


September 1, 2006 (2014)

Jesus

A deep peace settles upon those who serve the Lord. This interior peace, heaven’s presence, connects each apostle to their Saviour. I work in each soul without interruption if that soul welcomes Me. Around the apostle, circumstances change. Others come and go in their life and perhaps there is suffering or persecution. My presence remains constant, though, comforting, consoling, and directing. The connection between heaven and each apostolic servant is the avenue through which I return to the world. How heaven delights in each commitment. During this time, many look to their Saviour and know with certainty that I am calling out to them. Each apostle hears My call. You have heard My call. Consider today what your Jesus is asking of you. Consider how I am asking you to serve today. Dearest apostle, I must insist that you spend time in silence contemplating My will. I must insist upon this because I require your service in whatever way I have willed for you during this time. If you give Me your full attention for a period of time each day, I can instruct you and prompt you. Also, I can give you a very important heavenly attribute and that is the peace that I need you to possess. You must possess this for your own comfort, of course, but you must also possess this peace so that it flows through you into the world. Your world does not have peace. My peace has been rejected by your world. You, My beloved apostles, reject the world’s discord and accept My peace. That is why you are so important to Me. I am your Beloved One. You feel My presence, do you not? Truly, I am with you. Dear apostle, I want to be with everyone in this way. Will you help Me? I know that you will. Spend time with Me in silence each day and I will provide you with everything you need and everything the world requires.

Dear Family of Mary!

"Dear children! Pray for my intentions, because Satan wants to destroy my plan which I have here and to steal your peace. Therefore, little children, pray, pray, pray that God can act through each of you. May your hearts be open to God's will. I love you and bless you with my motherly blessing. Thank you for having responded to my call." (August 25, 2014)

I want to remind everyone that:

Mary TV will stream Mirjana's September 2 apparition live at www.marytv.tv  . The streaming will begin at 8:00 am Medjugorje time. Please check your time zones for the correct time in your area.
 

It will be at 2:00 am Eastern Daylight Time in the USA. Many of us will be up in the middle of the night for this wonderful occasion! Well worth the loss of sleep.

Also, "Tea with Rosie" this week is well worth watching. You can see it on our home page.

Now I want to share with you a very lovely homily that was given at the English Mass on August 29, 2014, by Fr. Maximilian of the Oasis of Peace Community. I have transcribed it for you because it is so full of beautiful wisdom.

Fr. Maximilian's Homily in St. James Church, English Mass, on August 29, 2014 - Passion of St. John the Baptist

To be a prophet is not an easy task. We all are prophets through Baptism, "kings, priests and prophets." And we know that God choses certain people to be prophets in their own time. AS we saw in the first reading, Jeremiah didn't like it at all. He knew what was coming: shame, dishonor. Fortunately, Mary never asked us here to be prophets. She asks us to be her witnesses. To be her apostles. To bring the Good News.

So as we go home from Medjugorje, where we have had an encounter with God and with our Blessed Mother, and have started the way of conversion or we will go forward with a stronger way of conversion, let us be careful that when we go home we don't try to be prophets. WE should not be telling the people what they should do or not do. Mary doesn't ask us to do that. She asks us to be witnesses.

Witness with your lives of prayer. Witness with your joy! Witness your conversion by your behavior. Saint Frances de Sales would say to "make your devotion, your prayer life, your conversion attractive."  

So if your husband sees his wife more gentle, or if the wife sees the husband coming back from Medjugorje more calm and more patient, if the children see their parents more united and joyful, they may say "Ah, I want that too. I might go myself to Medjugorje the next time."

So let's make our devotion attractive. Let's ask God for the grace to be a witness, to be apostles of good news, but not prophets, which as I said, is not an easy task.

Today we see the greatest of all prophets in the Old Testament, John the Baptist, dying an infamous death through the conspiracy of a weak king who kills him in the end against his will. He conspires with an ambitious woman full of hate and a dancing girl. Through those three dies the greatest of the prophets of the Old Testament.

Circumstances are never important. The problem is our relationship to God. Jesus didn't say to the Father, "Father I want to give my life, but you see that unjust judge, Pilate, and these jealous Jews..." He didn't say that. He had His first relation, His first love for the Father. And He knew that through this huge injustice God's will was done, was fulfilled. First of all it is for us to work on our relation to God. This is the first justice we have to strive for. That every honor and glory be given to Him. Obviously we then have to work on justice here on earth. That is what Jesus and all the prophets did. The especially defended the poor and the weak. Honestly.

Let's look for a moment at this so-called family, though we know it is not a family at all. They wanted to be seen as a family and went so far as to imprison the greatest of men born of woman. We see similar situations. Times have changed, but not the people. And so we do not know how long we can defend the rights of the natural family. We might also get imprisoned. But again, let us witness the beauty of family more than to fight against. Let us advance in the good.

So let us see this family, which Mark described with marvelous intellectual and psychological capacity and insights into human behavior. We see this king, actually what motivates him? It is love of self which generates in us a triple concupiscence. John describes in his letter, ST. John the Apostle and Evangelist, we can translate them as thirst for power, thirst for wealth and thirst for pleasure. These three, and especially the first one, the thirst for power destroys humanity today, not only at that time. We see that woman thirsting for power. We see the king living in pleasure, banqueting and losing his reason for a dancing girl. And we see a girl who wants wealth. In fact the king asks her, "Do you want half my kingdom?" These three destroy the world, especially the first one, the thirst for power. And we don't find them just in high political circles, we can find them also in our families: the husband who wants to possess his wife, or the wife possess her family or her husband or the children or her own womb.

Against these three inclinations that we have inherited through original sin, the Gospel teaches us, the Gospel gives us three virtues, three angelical counsels which are lived by some consecrated people in a strict way. The counsels become their lives, their way of life, their way to imitate Christ. Obedient, chaste and poor. But we are all called to exercise them. To go against the triple concupiscence (thirst for power, thirst for wealth, and thirst for pleasure).

Now Mary in her messages never wrote about those three. She mentioned once obedience. She said once, "I ask you to be obedient to me", and with 33 years as our mother, I think she has the right to do that. She never spoke about those virtues, but she shows us the way along which those virtues grow. And flourish.

Prayer, true prayer, prayer from the heart, which is our relationship to God, let us realize this is the greatest power in the whole universe, and we get that power. In John's prologue he writes about it, "Those who believe receive the power to become children of God." That is the greatest power. That is true power. That is the power that brings us into eternity. All these powers here on earth, we can also own the whole world, but we miserably perish. Let's be clever, truly clever, truly wise, and choose the true power. I am a child of God. I am a daughter, I am a son of my heavenly Father and my heavenly Mother and they take care of me, so I don't have to get all these riches and wealth to feel secure. I feel strong, I feel secure, why? I have a big bank account, I have a big car, I have a big house so I am a big man, a big woman. I don't need that anymore. I can be simple. I can be little. A child is little.

I can strive even for what John the Baptist said: "He has to grow, I have to diminish." Internally, we can empty ourselves of self that Christ will be able to grow in us. "Blessed are the poor in spirit." Blessed are those who have given God space in their lives, in their hearts. Mary always to give us Jesus at Christmas in a special way. And at each Eucharist we receive Jesus in us. Let us give Him space that He can breathe in us. That He can grow in us. This is true poverty ...of self.

And then He shows us the way of true joy. Mary says, "Prayer is joy without which you cannot live. But then we say that Jesus told us to carry the cross, and that is not a big pleasure, truly it is not a pleasure for human life, it is not a pleasure. But Jesus says for a holy soul if the love of the cross has entered deeply into the soul and the heart of the person, that person experiences a joy that the world does not know, because the world only knows pleasure. But joy is mine, Jesus says, and of my own. So Mary says the way of the cross (And sometimes we come to Medjugorje to get rid of the Cross) that the way of the cross can become the way of joy.

How great Thou art! We sing...how great God is! He transforms everything into good for those who love Him. Let us ask for this love for God. Because love of self, St. Augustine tells us (we celebrated him yesterday) when it goes so far that we are led to hate. We hate justice, we hate God, we hate everything. So let us ask Mary to help us to empty ourselves of self. And experience the joy of Christ in us. Christ amongst us. Christ is our peace, our joy and our salvation. Amen

Thank you, Fr. Maximilian, for sharing your heart of love with us.  May we respond with our hearts to Our Lady's call! 

In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!

“…Everything around you is passing and everything is falling apart…”

Medjugorje Headlines

Everything around you is passing and everything is falling apart…”

Our Lady of Medjugorje September 2, 2011

Everything around you is passing and everything is falling apart…”


Tonight Our Lady appeared to Ivan during his prayer group meeting on top of Apparition Mountain. Pilgrims started to arrive near the statue around 6:00 p.m. and a continuous stream of pilgrims ascended the mountain right up to the time of the apparition. It was a beautiful night with the sky full of stars. Rosaries were continuously prayed until the singing began at around 8:30 p.m. Ivan then announced that we would be praying the Sorrowful Mysteries of the Rosary in preparation for Our Lady’s apparition. Our Lady appeared to Ivan around 10:00 p.m. and the apparition lasted over 8 minutes. The following is Ivan’s description of the apparition:
 
Briefly I would like to describe to you what is the most important from tonight’s meeting with Our Lady. Also tonight Our Lady came to us happy and joyful. At the beginning, as always, She greeted all of us with Her Motherly greeting, ‘Praised be Jesus my dear children.’ After that She continued, with Her arms extended, to pray over all of us for a while. She especially prayed over all of you here who are sick. Then for a long time Our Lady prayed for peace, for peace in the world. Then Our Lady blessed all of us with Her Motherly blessing, and She also blessed everything you brought to be blessed. I also recommended all of you, all of your needs, your intentions, and your families, and especially all of you, the sick present here. After that Our Lady continued to pray for a while over all of you and then left in that prayer, in an illuminated Sign of the Cross, with a greeting, ‘Go in peace my dear children.’ I would especially like to emphasize that also at tonight’s meeting Our Lady, for a long time, especially prayed for peace. Thank you.”


Pictures from the August 29, 2014 Apparition in Medjugorje

Ivan's apparition August 29, 2014
A pilgrim knelt before the large wooden crucifix on top of Apparition Mountain hours before Our Lady’s apparition tonight, August 29, 2014. Tonight, Our Lady again asked for prayers for peace, for peace in the world. This has been Her request throughout the summer and watching the daily deterioration of peace around the world, we understand from Our Lady’s words that peace is greatly threatened in this time. In the early years of the apparitions in Medjugorje, there were many physical miracles and supernatural phenomenon that took place. These events confirmed to those who experienced them that Our Lady was truly appearing in Medjugorje. It was not uncommon for the villagers to see Our Lady on top of Cross Mountain below the Cross, Her veil blowing in the wind. The visionaries were pressed by many to ask Our Lady if it was truly Her that they saw. She responded:

December 31, 1981

Ivan asks Our Lady if it is really She appearing at the foot of the cross.

"Yes, it is true. Almost every day I am at the foot of the cross. My Son carried the cross. He has suffered on the cross, and by it, He saved the world. Every day I pray to my Son to forgive the sins of the world."

Tonight, in response to Our Lady’s request, we should place ourselves before a cross or crucifix and plead with Jesus to forgive the world its sins. It is only through the forgiveness of our sins that we can achieve peace. This is what the world has forgotten, and because there is no true recognition and repentance of sin, there is no peace.
 
Medjugorje August 29, 2014
A beautiful late summer sky spread across Medjugorje this evening, August 29, and led pilgrims who were waiting for Our Lady’s apparition to spend their time in contemplation of God’s creation. Our Lady said:
March 25, 1990
God wants to save you and sends you messages through men, nature, and so many things which can only help you to understand that you must change the direction of your life…”

A Friend of Medjugorje speaks often of the need to recognize our own sinfulness and to regularly repent of our sins through Confession. He says:
 
Not acknowledging sin and denying sin leads us in the wrong direction. Living the Commandments is not simply stating, “I keep them.” Living the Commandments is recognizing that often we don’t keep them, that we have broken them in our lives, and that we acknowledge that we have sinned against them. That is the road to waking up, which will lead to God rescuing our nation from its present course of suicide. The recognition of what sin is and being sensitive enough to repent and confess our weaknesses will lead us towards the right direction. That is what it means to keep the Commandments. Wisdom can then be obtained of how to gain authority over wickedness.”

From the writing “Troubles Befall You? How to Correct Them” by A Friend of Medjugorje

Why is it that Christians always seem to be on the losing side of every conflict in today’s culture? We do not have the power of God with us because we do not stand before Him with pure, humble and repentive hearts. We must change the direction of our lives and follow the wisdom of Our Lady who said. “You will not have happiness on this earth, neither will you come to Heaven if you are not with pure and humble hearts, and do not fulfill the law of God…” February 2, 1990

Sunset at Ivan's apparition August 29, 2014

The beauty of the sunset over Medjugorje tonight helps to open the heart to prayer. The youngest Medjugorje visionary, Jakov Colo, explained how Our Lady taught them how to do this, in beautiful simplicity:
 
“My true life began when I was ten years old, at that precise moment, when I truly experienced Jesus and the Gospa, when I felt them in my heart. The Gospa invited us to pray. She said: “Dear children, pray with your hearts, feel the joy, the peace and the peace that prayer brings. May prayer become your joy, because you cannot pray if you think that you must pray.” The heart needs to feel the need to pray, then prayer will become joy.”

“When the Gospa told us this, I asked myself as a child how it was possible to pray with the heart, how this should happen. I realized that prayer with the heart was a gift from God, a gift that God wishes to give everybody. I said to God and to the Gospa: “Dear God, dear Gospa, from now on I wish to pray with my heart, I wish to feel prayer in my heart, I wish to feel the joy of prayer, I wish to feel peace in prayer.” Then I began to pray and, slowly, I felt the joy of prayer. I searched for a place where I could pray and I didn’t find it difficult to pray anymore. We all need to ask the Gospa to help us pray with our hearts so that we may feel the beauty of prayer.”

Mary TV Daily Reflection 8/29/2014



A double rainbow over St. James

August 29, 2014
The Passion of St. John the Baptist

Dear Family of Mary!

"Dear children! Pray for my intentions, because Satan wants to destroy my plan which I have here and to steal your peace. Therefore, little children, pray, pray, pray that God can act through each of you. May your hearts be open to God's will. I love you and bless you with my motherly blessing. Thank you for having responded to my call." (August 25, 2014)

This message is a serious one. It comes at a moment when the world is tense. Fear and anxiety are washing over us. But we have been given all we need to defend ourselves from these weapons of the devil. We have been given prayer, the sacraments, Holy Mass, the Bible, forgiveness and God's peace. Our Lady's school is a defense against all of the enemy's strategies.

Jelena Vasilj once received instruction from Our Lady about how to maintain peace. There is no date on these words, but they were in the 80's when she received locutions:

To Jelena:
"Christians make a mistake in considering the future because they think of wars and of evil. For a Christian, there is only one attitude toward the future. It is hope of salvation."
"Your responsibility is to accept Divine peace, to live, and to spread it not through words, but through your life."
"The only attitude of the Christian toward the future is hope of salvation. Those who think only of wars, evils, punishment, do not do well."
"If you think of evil, punishment, wars, you are on the road to meeting them. Your responsibility is to accept Divine peace, live it and spread it"

I am especially helped by this one sentence: "The only attitude of the Christian toward the future is hope of salvation." These words of Our Lady should immediately refocus us on what our true future is... Heaven and life eternal with God. We must look up. We must look far ahead and see the place prepared for us by Jesus. That is our future. That is our joy. To live with Jesus forever in heaven is what should be in our viewfinder.

With that attitude we can face each day with strength and perseverance.

Let us pray for a renewed heavenly perspective, a way of seeing things that keeps our final destination in view at all times. We are destined for salvation! What blessed children we are.

In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!

Detroit ISNA Conference – Stealth Jihad for The Subjugation of America

Detroit ISNA Conference – Stealth Jihad for The Subjugation of America
ISNA (Islamic Society of North America) will be holding its annual convention in Detroit this weekend beginning Friday, August 29 and ending September 1.  ISNA was designated by federal prosecutors as an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation case, the largest terrorism financing trial in American history.   A 1991 Muslim Brotherhood memorandum introduced in that trial identified ISNA as one of its front organizations. The memorandum further stated the Brotherhood’s “work in America is a kind of grand jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within … so that it is eliminated and Allah’s religion is made victorious over all other religions.”
Detroit ISNA Conference – Stealth Jihad for The Subjugation of America
Astonishingly, despite ISNA’s terrorist ties, former President Jimmy Carter will be the convention’s keynote speaker.  Carter, also, recently called for the legitimization of Hamas, which is listed by the US government as a terrorist organization.   In addition to Carter, several other prominent non-Muslim political leaders will be speaking at the convention.
Richard Thompson, President and Chief Counsel of the Thomas More Law Center, a national public interest law firm based in Ann Arbor, Michigan, about an hour’s drive from Detroit, commented, “The participation of these political leaders is giving the ISNA convention the cover of respectability and as a result is enabling ISNA and other the other Muslim extremists at the convention to achieve their goal of a “Grand Jihad” to subjugate America.”
An integral aspect of ISNA’s plan for the subjugation of America is to portray itself as a peaceful, mainstream charitable institution.  It is part of the Muslim Brotherhood’s strategy of “civilization jihad.”  While most Americans are focused on violent jihad, civilization jihad is even more dangerous

 to American security.  According to Frank Gaffney’s Center for Security Policy, it is “a form of political and psychological warfare that includes multi-layered cultural subversion, the co-opting of senior leaders, influence operations, propaganda and other means of insinuating Shariah gradually into Western societies.”
Erick Stakelbeck, a terrorism expert and author of the book “The Brotherhood: America’s Next Great Enemy,” compared the Muslim Brotherhood’s strategy to that of “termites.”  “The Muslim Brotherhood in America and really around the world are like termites. They burrow into a host society. They eat away at it until the day comes where they are ready to make their move.”
Siraj Wahhaj, one of the scheduled speakers at the conference, was the first Muslim cleric to deliver opening prayers to Congress.  In his prayer he recited from the Koran and asked God to guide America’s leaders “and grant them righteousness and wisdom.”  A year later, he told a Muslim audience in New Jersey that, “If only Muslims were more clever politically, they could take over the United States and replace its constitutional government with a caliphate.” He was later named as an unindicted co-conspirator in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing.
In one of his sermons, Wahhaj said: “In time, this so-called democracy will crumble, and there will be nothing, and the only thing that will remain will be Islam.”
Abdurahman Alamoudi conducted the Muslim Brotherhood’s most successful infiltration of our political and defense establishments.  He advised Presidents Clinton and George W. Bush.  He penetrated and compromised our military and both the Democrat and Republican national organizations.   He established the Muslim Chaplain Program for the Defense Department.  He was the certifying authority for Muslim chaplains serving with the U.S.military.  He appeared with President Bush at a press conference days after the 9/11 attacks.  In 2005, the U.S. Treasury Department publicly admitted that Alamoudi was the top Al-Qaeda fundraiser in the United States.  Alamoudi is currently serving a 23-year prison sentence for his terrorist related activities.
Sheikh Yusuf al-Qaradawi of the Muslim Brotherhood, told a youth conference in Toledo, Ohio in 1998, “We will conquer Europe, we will conquer America.”

Mary TV Daily Reflection 8/28/2014 - Be Open to God's Will

St. Augustine, Bishop and Doctor of the Church

Dear Family of Mary!

"Dear children! Pray for my intentions, because Satan wants to destroy my plan which I have here and to steal your peace. Therefore, little children, pray, pray, pray that God can act through each of you. May your hearts be open to God's will. I love you and bless you with my motherly blessing. Thank you for having responded to my call." (August 25, 2014)

Our Lady gave a prayer to Jelena Vasilj in 1985 that contains a plea to be able to overcome evil in our lives and do the good. It seems like this prayer might be helpful for us as we try to respond to this message. Satan is a thief and will stop at nothing to take our peace and our faith away. He wants to kill our souls. So we must learn how to fight him at every level. As we fight, we will become strong. Our faith will grow. Jesus is with us to give us the victory.

The wording of the prayer is a bit difficult, but I think you will understand it well. We want to pray, pray, pray that God can act through us. We want to be open to God's will.

Petition to God
  (Given by Our Lady to Jelena Vasilj, 6/22/1985)

Recite 3 Glory Be's

Oh God, our heart is in deep obscurity,
in spite of our union to Your Heart.
Our heart is struggling between You and satan;
do not permit it to be in this manner!

Every time that the heart is divided
between good and evil,
let it be enlightened by Your light
and let it be unified.
Never permit,
for there to be able to exist in us two loves,
that there can never co-exist in us two faiths,
and that there can never co-exist in us;
lying and sincerity,
love and hatred,
honesty and dishonesty,
humility and pride.
Help us on the contrary,
so that our hearts may be elevated toward You
just like that of a child.
May our heart be ravished with peace
and continue to always have the nostalgia of it.

May Your Holy will and Your love
find a permanent place in us, that at least
sometimes we would really wish to be Your
children and when, Oh Lord,
we will desire to be Your children,
remember our past desires
and help us to receive You again.

We open our hearts to you
so that Your holy love will remain in us.
We open our souls to you,
so that they may be touched by Your holy mercy
which will help us to see clearly all our sins,
and will make us realize,
that which makes us impure is sin.

God, we want to be Your children,
humble and devout,
to the point of becoming your cherished and
sincere children,
such as only the Father
would be able to desire that we be.
Help us, Jesus our brother,
to obtain the goodness of the Father in our regard,
and to be good to Him.
Help us Jesus,
to understand well what God gives us,
although sometimes we fail to perform a good act,
as though it were for us an evil.

In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!

Over 70,000 People Say Stop the Satanic 'Black Mass' in Oklahoma

Contact: John Ritchie, TFP Student Action, 717-225-7147 ext 229

OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla., Aug. 27, 2014 /Christian Newswire/ -- Offending Christians nationwide, the Oklahoma City Civic Center is hosting a public "Black Mass" on September 21.

Opposition is mounting from coast to coast. More than 70,000 online petitions have been collected urging the Civic Center to cancel the sacrilegious and obscene ""Black Mass" which attacks God and desecrates the true Catholic Mass.

Readers are invited to sign the petition here:

"If the event involved stomping on the Koran, I bet the Civic Center would be calling for tolerance," said TFP Student Action Director, John Ritchie. "But since the Black Mass calls for stomping on the Holy Eucharist, the Civic Center claims the event is 'educational' and deserves a public platform, which happens to be funded with Christian tax-dollars. Shame on the Civic Center. They're misusing the 1st Amendment as a billy club to beat God-loving Americans over the head. It needs to stop."

Last week, Archbishop Paul Coakley of Oklahoma City filed a lawsuit demanding that satanist Adam Daniels return the Consecrated Host he illicitly obtained for the "Black Mass" to its rightful owner, the Catholic Church. The lawsuit was successful and the Host was returned to Archbishop Coakley.

"That was a victory," Ritchie said. "But we must not rest until the whole sacrilege is canceled. Civil leaders in Oklahoma should be encouraged to do the right thing, serve the common good, and cancel the 'Black Mass' altogether."

Students at Harvard University, Yale, Brown, Cornell, Columbia, Stanford, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and many other institutions of higher learning joined the petition sponsored by the American Society for the Defense of Tradition, Family and Property (TFP) against the "Black Mass" in Oklahoma.

"The public outcry is only growing," Ritchie continued. "The petition will probably hit 100,000 in a few weeks."

"Thousands of college students are really upset about this type of in-your-face satanism. They want America to remain one nation under God. And they want the 'Black Mass' to be canceled right away."
