    archokc ^ | September 19, 2014 | Archbishop Paul S. Coakley
    On Sunday, Sept. 21, a local satanic sect apparently will be allowed to conduct a public act of blasphemy in the form of a so-called black mass at the Civic Center in Oklahoma City. In spite of an overwhelming outcry of alarm from around the world, our city leaders will allow this outrage to take place in a publicly supported facility. They will not accede to the reasonable requests of local citizens to stop this outright mockery of the Catholic Mass nor the reasonable concerns of so many that this satanic ritual invokes powers of evil and invites them into...

    Prayers are urgently needed for my friend's foster son Sebastian. He is a very fragile child with multiple disabilities. He has had a couple of succesful surgeries to correct some of his problems but unfortunately, after coming home from hospital, he has had severe complications. They will be testing him today to see how responsive he is. The doctors are not sure why he is having so many problems and don't know what else they can do. Please also pray for comfort for his family . Thank you so much for your prayers.

Graham, who is a Christian evangelist and president of the association, revealed that his father had not been feeling well since celebrating his Nov. 7 birthday at a gala celebration last month in a hotel in Asheville, N.C.
