SatanCon is getting some big coverage this, year- for details, check out this CBS News article.
SatanCon is an annual event in Boston and this year is being dedicated to Boston’s Mayor Michele Wu, who many people call a Communist over her COVID Powergrabs:
But that will just be brushed off as a ‘joke’.
SatanCon is obviously a plot to scare people.
Americans experience gaslighting frequently over Satan Worship and Progressive Communism and how these things are being celebrated together on a known Communist day of interest- like May Day- in the city known around the world as the seat of Liberty- is not funny.
A May Day, or May Eve event, which is full of symbols of the struggles of Communism, is being dedicated to Boston City Mayor Michelle Wu, who some Bostonites are still furious with over COVID lockdown demands – including trying to push vaccine passports. If you feel a shiver go up your spine with the comingling of all of these anti-American ideas into one ‘witch – brew’, organizers will tell you – ‘Oh it’s just a joke’, right? Or it is for your good health.
Gaslighting is a slang term for forms of psychological manipulation in which the abuser attempts to sow self-doubt and confusion in their victim’s mind. Typically, gaslighters are seeking to gain power and control over the other person by distorting reality and forcing them to question their own judgment and intuition.
And SatanCon sounds like a comic book- right?

They do have detractors, as some media outlets have covered:
A group of Christians plans to attend SatanCon in Boston this week to pray for the attendees of what is being described as “the largest satanic gathering in history.”
“I initially went to prayer with a preconceived idea that God would want this to be prayed away,” Intercessors for America regional leader Suzie MacAskill told the Christian Post. “It was following this assumption that I was awakened through the night with a clear sense of ‘This is [God’s] harvest field.'”
SatanCon 2023, which is scheduled to take place April 28-30 in Boston, marks the 10-year anniversary of The Satanic Temple, according to its website. The theme of the gathering is “Hexennacht in Boston,” translated from German for “Witches’ Night,” which marks the ancient pagan holiday of May Eve.
WE HAVE BEEN HERE BEFORE THINK OF THE ORIGINS OF ‘MAY DAY’ AS WELL
A few minutes after ten o’clock on the night of May 4, 1886, a storm began to blow up in Chicago. As the first drops of rain fell, a crowd in Haymarket Square, in the packing house district, began to break up. At eight o’clock there had been 3,000 persons on hand, listening to anarchists denounce the brutality of the police and demand the eight-hour day, but by ten there were only a few hundred. The mayor, who had waited around in expectation of trouble, went home, and went to bed. The last speaker was finishing his talk when a delegation of 180 policemen marched from the station a block away to break up what remained of the meeting. They stopped a short distance from the speaker’s wagon. As a captain ordered the meeting to disperse, and the speaker cried out that it was a peaceable gathering, a bomb exploded in the police ranks. It wounded 67 policemen, of whom seven died. The police opened fire, killing several men and wounding 200, and the Haymarket Tragedy became a part of U. S. history.According to Time Mag.
In 1889, the International Socialist Conference declared that, in commemoration of the Haymarket affair, May 1 would be an international holiday for labor, now known in many places as International Workers’ Day, which has been upheld by Communist organizations.
Does that seem coincidental? Look at the historic pushback:
“In the U.S., that holiday came in for particular contempt during the anti-communist fervor of the early Cold War. In July of 1958, President Eisenhower signed a resolution named May 1 “Loyalty Day” in an attempt to avoid any hint of solidarity with the “workers of the world” on May Day. The resolution declared that it would be “a special day for the reaffirmation of loyalty to the United States of America and for the recognition of the heritage of American freedom.”
So this is interesting timing for a showing of Satanists, is it not? And how about the Catholic church standing up for American freedom of religion?
Which side do you choose?
A press statement from the Catholic church was released in response to the demonic movement of Satan’s worshipers:
ARCHDIOCESE OF BOSTON TO GATHER FOR ADORATION AND PRAYER IN RESPONSE TO SATANCON CONVENTION
In light of the upcoming “Satancon” convention which will be held in Boston from April 28-30 at the Boston Marriott Copley Place, the Archdiocese of Boston has communicated a plan to parishes, ministries, religious communities and staff that is balanced and focused on prayer.
The convention organizers are billing it as “the largest satanic gathering in history” and state that the event is sold out. People across the Archdiocese of Boston are appropriately concerned by such an event taking place in Boston.
We ask Catholics not to organize or encourage others to go to the event to protest. It will only make it more prominent and give the organizers the attention they seek.
Rather than protesting in person, we hope to storm the Heavens with prayer from our shrines, monasteries, and parishes.
The Plan includes the following:
List of sites for prayer and adoration
Sites throughout the Archdiocese will be open to gather in adoration and prayer. Our shrines and most of our monasteries have agreed to participate in this effort. Our men and women religious have been invited to more intense prayer during that weekend. In addition, many of our parishes will be open during the three days for prayer, adoration and Masses.
The list is available by clicking here. It will be updated as new locations are added.
Prayer of Saint Michael
The Prayer of Saint Michael is encouraged to be said during these times.
Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle. Be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil; May God rebuke him, we humbly pray; And do thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Host, by the power of God, thrust into hell Satan and all evil spirits who wander through the world for the ruin of souls. Amen.
CatholicTV will be airing the prayer frequently during the weekend of April 28-30.
Prayers of the Faithful
We are providing Prayers of the Faithful for the weekend Masses of April 29 & 30 and for daily Mass on April 28.
The recommended Prayers of the Faithful are available by clicking here.
- Our response must be balanced and focused on prayer.
- We will gather in adoration and prayer.
- With this intention, many of our parishes will be open during the three days for prayer, adoration, and Masses.
- Please do not organize or encourage the faithful to protest at the event. It will only make it more prominent and give the organizers the attention they seek.
We will bring more details of the even as they become clear.
