Please pray for Arizona!

The Satanic Temple in Arizona will host theirSatanCon” conference Feb. 11-13, 2022 in Scottsdale, Arizona.

The group will dedicate this conference to the Scottsdale City Council after they denied the Satanic Temple the opportunity for an invocation at one of their meetings.

“Far from being disgruntled and put off, we’re going to bring Satan to Scottsdale. We’re bringing the party to you, Scottsdale, and it’s going to be an event to remember,” Satanic Temple co-founder Lucien Greaves said in a press release.

Local member and Satanic minister Chalice Blythe said the group also wants to “establish community ties in Scottsdale.”

The Diocese of Phoenix issued a response on behalf of Bishop Thomas Olmsted, calling for the “faithful to unite in spiritual warfare.”

“Unite in Spiritual Warfare”

Bishop Olmsted discourages public demonstration or protest, but asks the faithful to instead pray, fast, and make sacrifices in reparation for sinners.

He added that “these are the most effective spiritual weapons against Satan’s futile attempt at sowing division and confusion in our midst.”

Here’s the his suggested list of spiritual actions:

The statement encourages prayer before the Blessed Sacrament, prayers to Our Lady and the saints, particularly the prayer to St. Michael, attending weekday Mass, fasting, and making sacrifices of reparation.
