    OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — The archbishop of Oklahoma City has sued to try to stop a group of Satanists from staging a “black mass” next month at a civic center, arguing that the group is using a communion wafer stolen from the Catholic Church. Archbishop Paul Coakley filed the lawsuit Wednesday in Oklahoma County District Court. Coakley alleges that the Dakhma of Angra Mainyu and leader Adam Daniels unlawfully obtained the consecrated host to be used in the mass. A consecrated host is a wafer of bread that Catholics believe is the body and blood of Jesus. According to the lawsuit, only ordained Catholic ministers or extraordinary ministers of Holy Communion can handle the consecrated host.
