Harvard Extension Cultural Club calls off Black Mass amid protests, Holy Hour

The Harvard Extension Cultural Studies Club first said that they were moving the "Black Mass" they were sponsoring off of the Harvard Campus, but when the club where they then planned to hold the blasphemous ceremony said that "negotiations fell through," the club then said that they were cancelling their sponsorship of the event. Meanwhile, members of the Satanic Temple claimed to hold something akin to a "Black Mass" at a Chinese restaurant near the Harvard campus, although the owner of that establishment told the Boston Globe that he didn't know anything about that. As the truth seems to have emerged, it appears that the closest thing that the Satanists got to a "Black Mass" was some raucous behavior and a few drinks.

Meanwhile, the events that were planned in protest of the Devil worship went on as scheduled. Over 2,000 people joined in a Eucharistic procession from MIT to St. Paul's Church in Harvard Square, where they packed the church to standing room only for Eucharistic Adoration and an inspirational homily from the pastor of St. Paul's and senior chaplain at Harvard, Father Michael Drea.
