Official Statement Regarding "reenactment of a satanic black mass" at Harvard University

The Harvard Knights of Columbus are deeply saddened by the "reenactment of a satanic black mass" being hosted by a university club on campus. The black mass is a ritual that has been unequivocally condemned by the Church throughout its history. It is an intentional perversion of the Catholic Mass intended to be incredibly offensive to Christians and Catholics in particular while desecrating what we hold to be Jesus Christ himself present in the Eucharist.

The organizers of this event have so far responded to criticism by citing the protections of Freedom of Speech and Freedom of Religion - both venerable principles on which our great nation was built. Some have played down the offensive nature of the event by billing it as "educational," while others have pointed out that the ritual is satirical at its very core, and so is acceptable no matter how much it offends. Both of these points dangerously ignore the evil inherent in the ritual itself. Furthermore, the message that these positions provide is that it is okay to attack someone else's religious beliefs so long as you openly admit that you are doing so. This is a notion that we wholeheartedly reject. While we are partial to the Catholic faith, we oppose the notion of offending people of any creed for the sake of being offensive.

We hope that you will join us in prayerfully responding to this terrible event occurring at our fair university. If you are on or near campus, we invite you to join us at St. Paul Parish at the corner of Bow and Arrow Streets in Harvard Square on Monday, May 12th, from 8:00 to 9:00 PM for a Eucharistic Holy Hour and Benediction. If you will not be in the area, then we encourage you to pray with us in solidarity wherever you might be. Let us join together in the presence of Our Lord and Savior and under the guidance of Our Blessed Lady to show the world that the power of darkness will never prevail over the light of Christ.

Vivat Iesus!
