• Statement from Diocese of San Jose regarding comments Father Gary Thomas made in National Catholic Register

    In a recent issue of the National Catholic Register Father Gary Thomas was quoted as stating he was offering Mass for new Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh on October 18 and 20 in the wake of “hex” to be placed on the Kavanaugh on October 20.

    Father Thomas said that he would offer the regularly scheduled Mass on both dates for the Justice and that he would pray for the safety of the Justice during each Mass’s Prayer of the Faithful.

    In addition, Father Thomas never said that the gathering was being led by a Satanic cult. He made comments about Satanic cults, but those comments don’t apply to the group placing the hex on Justice Kavanaugh because this group refers to themselves as a coven, not a cult.
