On Saturday, May 2, our archbishop will reconsecrate our island to Our Blessed Mother. The reconsecration will coincide with the U.S. Bishops doing the same on May 1. 

And while the reconsecration of our nation and our island to the Blessed Mother is a right and good thing, Fr. John Zuhlsdorf is imploring bishops "to pronounce the exorcism in Title XI Chapter 3 of the Roman Ritual over their dioceses" before the consecration:

"Before the consecration of these USA to the Blessed Mother, I call on all bishops to pronounce the exorcism in Title XI Chapter 3 of the Roman Ritual over their dioceses."


In the history of salvation, there have always been spiritual purifications before blessings and consecrations. 
  • In the traditional rite of baptism there are exorcisms.
  • In the traditional rite of consecration of a church there are exorcisms.
  • In the traditional rite of the blessing of Holy Water there are exorcisms.
  • Before Isaiah was given the office of prophet by God, the holy angel purified his lips with a burning coal.  Only then was he made God’s prophet.
  • In the traditional rite of Holy Mass, before the reading of the Gospel the image of the angel with the coal is invoked before God’s blessing is begged.
An exorcism first - or at least the public rejection of Satan - also follows the pattern of the annual renewal of our baptismal vows, which, had we been permitted to attend Mass on Easter, we would have done:

V. Do you reject Satan?
R. I do.

V. And all his works?
R. I do.
V. And all his empty promises?
R. I do.
V. Do you believe in God, the Father Almighty, creator of heaven and earth?
R. I do.
V. Do you believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord, who was born of the Virgin Mary was crucified, died, and was buried, rose from the dead, and is now seated at the right hand of the Father?
R. I do.
V. Do you believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy Catholic church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and life everlasting?
R. I do.
V. God, the all-powerful Father of our Lord Jesus Christ has given us a new birth by water and the Holy Spirit, and forgiven all our sins. May he also keep us faithful to our Lord Jesus Christ for ever and ever.
R. Amen.

Before reconsecrating ourselves to the Blessed Trinity we are asked to reject Satan, all his works, and all his empty promises. Of course, rejecting Satan before participating in anything holy follows the same pattern as to why we go to confession (or used to) before we receive communion. 

Given the absolute decades of "filth in the Church" which have been uncovered in the last few years (the real plague by the way), not to mention our electing as governor the first president of People for Choice*, Guam's first pro-abortion activist organization, which, beginning in 1990, paved the way for thousands of murdered infants, mostly Chamorro (the following chart only shows 2008-2017)...

...perhaps an exorcism first?
