The desecration of the statue of the Blessed Virgin Mary occurred as planned in Oklahoma City on Christmas Eve. Satanist Adam Daniels and a small band of cretins obtained a city permit from Oklahoma City, under the administration of Mayor Mick Cornett to carry out the public desecration.
Why would Mayor Cornett's administration give the permit so readily? We are willing to wager that a permit would not have been granted for a public ceremony that pours costume blood in mockery on a copy of The Diary of Anne Frank, or on the Koran. We do not advocate such activity, but cannot help but ask the question: Why are Christianity and the Blessed Mother fair game for city-approved desecration?
The Fatima Center posted a December 22 report calling for reparation for the outrage. Even prior to our report, David A. Homeney, a zealous Catholic layman, called for concerned Catholics to join him in Oklahoma City to take part in public protest and reparation for the satanic event. He set up a Facebook page to marshal interest in defending Our Lady.
Here is Mr. Homeney's report from the December 24 occurrence:
"If you are receiving this it is because you expressed support for the men that were going out to Oklahoma City to publicly pray prayers of reparation for the blasphemous desecration of a statue of Our Lady by Satanists. As the approved apparition to Marie de Saint Pierre says, public blasphemy requires public reparation, and so public reparation was to be made.
"When I got there today, my heart leapt for joy when I saw 50-60 Catholic men there. Right after we parked the car and walked up we saw four young men holding a wooden platform on their shoulders with a large and beautiful statue of the Pieta, adorned with flowers.
"In unison these few, this band of Catholic brothers, all kneeling, prayed Rosaries of reparation along with hymns, the Angelus, St. Michael's Prayer, and other prayers of reparation. Above our heads in the parking garage some young men unfurled a large icon of Our Blessed Mother. This is nearly all the public could see, as a large RV was parked in front of where the act of desecration took place.
"Shortly after the start of the Rosary, led by some fine young men from St. Mary's Kansas, the satanists showed up. Not one single word that these vile men said could be overheard due to the recitation of the Holy Rosary by 50-60 Catholic men, said in unison. It was truly a sight to behold. The Church Militant was in force there.
"While the satanists were scheduled to do their thing from 4:30 to 6:15, they didn't start till about 4:45 and were gone by 5:30. The power of Catholic men, solemnly in prayer to Our Blessed Lord and His Mother overwhelmed them and sulking they left. It was a victory for Our Lord and Our Lady. Evil cannot stand in the face of the Truth. Many vehicles passing by blew their horns in support. Afterwards, some of the young men and I blessed the spot of the desecration with blessed salt and holy water.
"We finished our prayers around 6:15 and processed with the Pieta. Here is where the only sad and disappointing thing happened.
"The procession headed up [to] the end of the block at which point we crossed the street. The only place Our Lady wasn't welcomed was on the sidewalk in front of St. Joseph's Old Cathedral. Our Lady was excluded and barred from even being processed on the sidewalk in front of the church. This was at the behest of the ushers of the parish and then enforced by the police. So we crossed back over the street singing our hymns."
Dr. Brian McCall, who was also at the event, said he recognized at least nine men from Oklahoma City. This would be in addition to the 3 or 4 "Okies" mentioned by Mr. Homeney, who continued:
"It was a great turnout … Much thanks to the men who showed up from all over the country. We had men from St. Mary's in Kansas, DFW in Texas, Tyler in Texas, various other towns in Kansas, and most incredibly we had about 20 men from Pennsylvania. These men flew out from Eastern PA around Gettysburg, to show up and make public reparation for this public act of blasphemy.
"The men, young and old alike, made huge sacrifices to come to Oklahoma to be here. When asked why they did, the response was 'Well, we are able bodied and it needed to be done.' They are now going to midnight Mass in OKC at St. Damien's and will be flying out at 5 am to hopefully make it home to their families in time for Christmas dinner. These men are an inspiration and should be in all of your prayers."
As a reaction to the Fatima Center's December 22 report, we received responses from Catholics throughout the nation and the world pledging to offer reparation.
My own family made a Holy Hour of Reparation in the presence of the Blessed Sacrament from 4:30 to 5:30 on Christmas Eve.
Thanks to all who stood up in any way in defense, and in reparation. Feel free to continue lodging your complaints to Mayor Cornett* of Oklahoma City, whose reputation is now cemented to this anti-Christian outrage.
And congratulations again to David A. Homeney and his companions who came from far and wide to join in public defense of Our Blessed Mother.
