    Aleteia ^ | November 24, 2017 | Ary Waldir Ramos Diaz
    Francis reflects on what could have been for the Betrayer of Christ, and how shame is a gift. Pope Francis reflected on the Christian prayer of the Our Father during an episode of the “Our Father” television series on the Italian Catholic television channel TV2000. Now, his words on that occasion have been turned into a book, published by Italian publishing house Rizzoli. The Il Corriere della Sera newspaper printed an extract in its November 23, edition.The pope shared a meditation on the true meaning of shame. He did so by focusing on the fates of three Biblical people who...

    Performance artist Marina Abramovic has backed out of her grandiose plans for her upstate arts institute and questions loom over what happened to the $2.2 million she raised over four years for the project, including donations from the likes of Jay-Z and nearly 5,000 donors in a Kickstarter campaign. The edgy artist, who became world famous for staring down people in her blockbuster 2010 MOMA show, The Artist is Present, touted her multi-million dollar Marina Abramovic Institute for the Preservation of Performance Art as a place for artists to conduct grand experiments

    Lucifer - the god of this world - uses his power of DEATH and FEAR to utterly manipulate this world and to cause tremendous fear to dominate Adam's fallen race as he seeks to impose his despotic self-willed agenda on all (Isa. 14:12-15, Rom. 5:12-21, Eph. 2:2-3, Heb. 2:14-15). He is a TERROR to all; in the angelic world and in this physical human world (Ezek. 28:19, Heb. 2:14-15, Rev. 12). He is a violent raging DRAGON, a roaring and powerful LION, a wise and crafty destroying and deceiving SERPENT, an ADVERSARY (i.e., Satan) and a slanderous character assassin (i.e.,...

    The Michelle Obama Public Library in Long Beach, California hosted a satanic looking drag queen on Saturday who read books to young children as part of the libraryÂ’s celebration LGBTQ History Month. The shocking photo of a man dressed as a female demon with giant horns on his head reading to little children at a public library was posted to Twitter and Facebook by the Long Beach Library but taken down after a huge outpouring of critical replies, including from GOP Congressional candidate Omar Navarro. It also got the approval of the Church of Satan. From this promotional graphic posted...

    The Christian baker in Colorado who was sued for declining to make a cake for a same-sex couple’s wedding reception received a strange request last month: Design and bake a cake celebrating Satan’s birthday. “I would like to get a quote on a birthday cake, for a special event,” the email request to baker Jack Phillips, sent Sept. 30 and exclusively obtained by The Daily Signal, reads. It continues: It is a cake that is religious in theme, and since religion is a protected class, I am hoping that you will gladly bake this cake. As you see, the birthday...

    Why and How Does Satan Roam the Earth? Msgr. Charles Pope • August 16, 2017 • One of the more puzzling aspects of demonology is the freedom that Satan and demons appear to have in roaming the earth, causing trouble. If the condemned are consigned to Hell for all eternity, why is Satan allowed to wander about outside of Hell? Isn’t he supposed to be suffering in Hell along with his minions and the other condemned? Further, it doesn’t seem that he is suffering one bit, but rather having a grand time wreaking havoc on the earth. How do...

    'It's evil, it's the essence of evil' A South Florida middle-school teacher is again igniting rage among local Christians by planning a satanic display encouraging children to “hail Satan” in a public city park during the upcoming Christmas season. Preston Smith, a language-arts teacher at Boca Raton Community Middle School, is looking to erect a giant, 300-pound metal pentagram with messages including: “May the Children Hail Satan,” “In Satan We Trust” and “One Nation under Antichrist.” But one local pastor is vowing to personally demolish the display with a sledgehammer. “In essence they’re putting out a welcome mat for Satan,”...

    Hillary Clinton was so frustrated about the infamous scandal surrounding her use of a private email server that she was “tempted” to construct voodoo dolls in the images of “certain members” of the news media and Congress, and then “stick them full of pins.” So Clinton wrote in her 494-page new memoir, What Happened, which was released today. In the book, Clinton complained that the “attacks” against her use of the private email server “were untrue or wildly overstated, and motivated by partisan politics.”

    And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days… And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent.(Revelation 12:6,14)The Dragon hates the woman. Though Satan couldn’t stop the birth of the Messiah, his triumphant life and ministry, and his death and resurrection, He still utterly hates Israel for being...

    The Lies of the Devil and the Empty Promises of the World Msgr. Charles Pope • September 22, 2016 • One of the great illusions under which we labor is that if we only get just one more thing from this world, then we will be happy. Perhaps we think that if we just had a little more money, or a better job, or the latest iPhone, or if we were married to so-and-so, or if we lived in a better neighborhood, then we would be satisfied and content at last. But “at last” never seems to come even...

    Video and Transcript: The Church has reached the tipping point in America where there are more Vatican II Catholics than those born before Vatican II. And it is having a dramatic effect in the Church. The latest research shows that 64 percent — almost two out of every three American Catholics — was born just before the Second Vatican Council or after. The dividing line is the year 1961 (and happens to be my birth year). Two out of every three Catholics therefore have no living memory or experience of the Church how it was before the Council. My generation...

    And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars: And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered. And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads. And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered,...

    WASHINGTON – The venerated journalistic institution the Washington Post, which recently adopted the slogan “Democracy Dies in Darkness,” published a column Wednesday by a spokesman for the “Prince of Darkness” who blamed Christianity for slavery and white supremacism. The op-ed by Lucien Greaves, both a defense of satanism and an attack on Christianity, was headlined “I’m a founder of the Satanic Temple. Don’t blame Satan for white supremacy.” Although slavery was historically practiced by virtually every culture in the world and only stopped by Christians, Greaves revives the argument that blames it on Christians. In the op-ed, the self-described co-founder of the Satanic...
  • Hundreds Gather for Unveiling of Satanic Statue in Detroit(2015)

    08/19/2017 6:57:30 AM PDT · by RC one · 20 replies
    A little before midnight on Saturday, a crowd of around 700 gathered in an old industrial warehouse a few blocks from the Detroit River for what they'd been told was the "largest public satanic ceremony in history." Most of them professed to be adherents of Satanism, that loosely organized squad of the occult that defines itself as a religious group. Others came simply because they were curious. After all, Satanists exist in the popular psyche as those who casually sacrifice goats and impregnate Mia Farrow with Lucifer's child; if this ceremony was indeed unprecedentedly big, who knew what could be...

    Chelsea Clinton was soundly criticized for her comments Tuesday regarding Confederate monuments. She tweeted about her childhood, saying that the only Confederate memorial she remembered from her home state of Arkansas was in the cemetery. People immediately pointed out that there was a rather larger memorial on the state Capitol grounds, where she had lived when her father served as the governor of Arkansas. So Clinton changed tactics, and on Thursday, she tweeted a comparison between Confederate monuments and Satan. "The story of Lucifer-who rebelled against God-is part of many Christians' traditions. I've never been in a church with a...

    A small group of nuns and priests met the woman in the chapel of a house one June evening. Though it was warm outside, a palpable chill settled over the room. As the priests began to pray, the woman slipped into a trance -- and then snapped to life. She spoke in multiple voices: One was deep, guttural and masculine; another was high-pitched; a third spouted only Latin. When someone secretly sprinkled ordinary water on her, she didn't react. But when holy water was used, she screamed in pain. "Leave her alone, you f***ing priests," the guttural voice shouted. "Stop,...

    The shock claim comes from a scientist who has spent more than 40 years researching the subject. According to Henry Ansgar Kelly, a research professor from the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), there is actually “no evidence” to sugges the devil should be portrayed as evil. Instead, Professor Kelly suggests Christians have got it wrong and Satan was actually trying to do good and is on God’s side, but got “overzealous” in his judgements. He said: "There's little or no evidence in the Bible for most of the characteristics and deeds commonly attributed to Satan. "A strict reading of...

    A Meditation on the Escalating Attack of Satan Msgr. Charles Pope * February 18, 2016 * Last Sunday, we read the passage from the Gospel of Luke about the testing of Christ in the desert by Satan. In his Summa Theologica, St. Thomas Aquinas makes some interesting observations. He treats the temptations as having occurred in an escalating manner; he also connects Christ's experience to that of Adam in the Garden of Eden.St. Thomas writes,Thus, too, did the devil set about the temptation of the first man. For at first he enticed his mind to consent to the eating...
