.- The Secretary for the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Sacraments, Archbishop Domenico Sorrentino, says a rediscovery of the Eucharist is needed as an answer to the spread of satanic practices.  “The Church is concerned” about sacrileges and profanations committed against the Eucharist by satanic cults during so-called “black masses.” During a convention on Eucharistic miracles taking place in Rome, Archbishop Sorrentino said, “The increasing occurrence of these rituals, which often conclude with true crimes or the torture of recruits, is alarming.”

“However,” he continued, “I am convinced that growth in Christian faith, prayer before the Eucharist and the testimonies of love that derive from it, are the best antidotes to this troubling phenomenon.  There must be a rediscovery of the Eucharist, which is the center, fount and culmination of the faith.”

The convention, organized by the Legionaries of Christ, is focused on Eucharistic miracles that took place between 1200 and 1700 and which helped counter heretical movements of the day.
