Note: To the best of our knowledge, this is the first Black Mass to be recorded, either in written words or in audio. It is as authentic as hundreds of hours of research in every known source can make it...

Altar Bell (Rung nine times to invoke the spirit Satan.)
Coven (Chanting Invocation in ancient language to conjure Satan from the infernal abyss)

High Priest “In the name of Satan, ruler of Earth, the King of the world, the Chief of the Serfs, I command the forces of darkness to bestow their infernal power upon us. Save us, Lord Satan, from the treacherous and the violent. Oh Satan, Spirit of the Earth, God of Liberty, open wide the gates of Hell and come forth from the abyss by these names:”
High Priest and Coven “Satan! Beelzebub! Leviathon! Asmodeus! Abaddon!”
High Priest (chants)
“Gloria Satanas, et “Glory be to Satan
Belial et Spiritui and Belial, and
maloso.” to the evil spirits”

saecula saeculorum. without end. Amen”
Amen.”
High Priest (chants)
“Satanas vobiscum.” “Satan be with you.”
Coven (responds)
“Et cum spiritu tuo.” “And with thy spirit.”
High Priest (Calling the coven to prayer)
“Let us pray . . . Urged by our Lord Satan’s bidding, and schooled by his infernal ordinance, we make bold to say:”
High Priest and Coven (Recitation of the Lord’s Prayer, backwards)
“Amen . . . Evil from us deliver but . . . Temptation into not us lead and . . . Us against trespass who those forgive we as . . . Trespasses our us forgive and . . . Bread daily our day this us give . . . Heaven in is it as earth on . . . Done be will thy . . . Come kingdom thy . . . Name thy be hallowed . . . Heaven in art who . . . Father our.”
High Priest (Removes his headdress and approaches the coven, congregated a few feet in front of the altar)
“Children of my office. From high matters I spare the time to preside over this gathering. By the favor of our Lord Satan, I have the power to grant your wishes, should it please me to do so. Waste no moment in unnecessary babbling or you will incur my anger. Now, lift up your heads, and tell me your desires.”
(After a loud knock at the side door of the Altar Chamber)
“Who seeks entry here?”
Assistant Priestess “One who repents her past heresies and craves to be accepted into the grace of our Master, Satan . . . designated by the Creator. Lord of this World from beginning without end.”
High Priest “Enter, penitent, that you may abase yourself before the only true God.”
(The side door opens, revealing a scared young girl, who has been persuaded to join the coven. She enters, hesitantly, wearing a long white muslin garment, tied at the waist with a cord. Her ankles are bound in shackles)
“Penitent, the opportunity is offered you to redeem your past . . . Do you desire to take it?”
Probationer “Yes.”
High Priest “Are you prepared to serve our Lord Satan with your whole mind, body, and soul, permitting nothing to deter you from the furtherance of his work?
Probationer “Yes.”
High Priest “As proof that you have purged your mind of all false teaching, you will now break this crucifix and throw the pieces from you.”
(Sound of crucifix breaking)
High Priest “Stand up, and raise your left hand! Repeat after me, sentence by sentence, the words I am about to say:
High Priest and Probationer “I deny Jesus Christ the deceiver . . . and I abjure the Christian faith, holding in contempt all of its works. By the symbol of the Creator, I swear henceforth to be . . . a faithful servant of his most puissant Arch-Angel, the Prince Lucifer . . . whom the Creator designated as His Regent and Lord of this World. As a being now possessed of a human body in this world. I swear to give my full allegiance to its lawful Master: to worship Him, our Lord Satan and no other; to despise all manmade religions, and to bring contempt to them whenever possible; to undermine the faith of others in such false religions whenever possible; and bring them to the true faith when desirable. I swear to give my mind, body, and soul unreservedly . . . to the furtherance of the designs of our Lord Satan. If I betray my oath, I do now decree to have my throat cut, my tongue and heart torn out . . . and to be buried in the sand of the ocean that the waves of it may carry me away into an eternity of oblivion.”
High Priest “If you ever break this oath, we shall pronounce sentence upon you in the name of our Lord Satan . . . that you shall fall into dangerous disease and leprosy, and that, in the sign of his vengeance, you shall perish by a terrifying and horrible death, and that a fire shall consume and devour you on every side and utterly crush you . . . and that by the power of Satan, a flame shall go forth from His Mouth which shall burn you up and reduce you to nothing in Hell … ”
High Priest (Removes a bag from the altar; this bag contains the shavings of a clock)
“Now take these shavings in your hand and face the Goat of Mendes . . . repeat after me:
High Priest and Probationer “I deny God, Creator of Heaven and Earth, and I adhere to thee, and believe in thee.”
High Priest (Leads the girl to the right side of the altar to a black throne, upon which is seated Satan in the materialization of a huge black goat with a human body, but with the hooves and head of a goat. The goat has three horns, the middle one being a lighted torch)
“Kiss the Goat!!”
(As the girl kisses the posterior of the goat from behind the throne, the ceremony of fidelity to Satan known as the Pax, the High Priest intones . . . )
“As the shavings of the clock do never return to the clock from which they are taken, so may your soul never return to Heaven.”
( . . . leading the girl back to the altar)
“Now . . . remove your garment and lie down at full length upon the altar.”
(As the girl drops her garment and lies naked on the altar, the High Priest stretches out her arms and places a lighted black candle in each outstretched hand. She is now a human altar in the shape of a crucifix; her ankles still being bound by the shackles. Some members of the assemblage, looking ahead to the ceremony where she must submit to the sexual desires of the coven, are beginning to express their emotions.)
“Brothers and sisters of the Left-Hand Path . . . the penitent has proved a worthy neophyte in our high order. It is now my happy duty to free her from the bonds of ignorance and superstition.”
(The High Priest removes the shackles from the ankles of the young probationer/neophyte and proceeds with the rite symbolic of copulation with the devil. If the Lord Satan or one of his demons is present at this portion of the Mass, the High Priest will step aside and lead conjurations of lust while the ceremony is actually performed. After this rite, the neophyte, still serving as the altar, has the Chalice containing the host and a skull filled with blood placed upon her prone body. The host is generally stolen from a Catholic church, dyed black, and cut into a triangular shape. The blood is generally from a previously sacrificed animal of bird; although for a major high Sabbath, the most effective sacrifice is an unbaptised baby)
High Priest (chants)
“Satanas gratias.” “Thanks be to Satan”
“Satanas vobiscum.” “Satan be with you.”
Coven (responds)
“Et cum spiritu tuo” “And with thy spirit.”
High priest and Coven (Walks to left of human altar to begin the Offeratory. He holds up the Paten containing the consecrated host)
“Lucifer, Save us! Master, Save us!
Astaroth, Save us! Master, Save us!
Shaiton, Save us! Master, Save us!
Zabulon, Save us! Master, Save us!
Maloch, Save us! Master, Save us!”
(High Priest walks to the right of human altar, and holds up the skull or other Chalice containing the blood)
“Satan, Have mercy! Master, Have mercy!
Baal, Have mercy! Master, Have mercy!
Azazel, Have mercy! Master, Have mercy!
Dagon, Have mercy! Master, Have mercy!
Mammon, Have mercy! Master, Have mercy!”
High Priest (Taking Communion, consecrates the Paten and the Chalice with the blessing of Death)
“Blessed be the bread and wine of death . . . blessed a thousand times more than the flesh and blood of life, for you have not been harvested by human hands nor did any human creature mill and grind you. It was our Lord Satan who took you to the mill of the grave, so that you should thus become the bread and blood of revelation and revulsion. I spit upon you! And I cast you down! In the memory of Satan, because you preach punishment and shame to those who would emancipate themselves and repudiate the slavery of the church!”
(He casts the consecrated host and blood on the floor in front of the altar and spits on them. At this sign, the entire congregation rushes up amidst screams of hate and tramples upon the mixture. They also scramble and fight for remnants to be used in casting private spells)
(High Priest – tearing off his vestments and trampling them on the ground . . . )
“These ornaments, badges of authority, serve only to conceal the nakedness which is alone acceptable to our Lord Satan!”
(Entire coven rips off their cloaks and any other garments amidst bestial shrieks and growls. This is silenced by the High Priest who rings a gong, causing the reaction of a thunder clap. The High Priest holds his left hand aloft helping the unsteady, and seemingly drugged, young neophyte off the altar to stand naked before the now naked coven)
“Neophyte, you have served me well! Stand up and join these assembled here so that they may look upon you, and do with you as they desire …”
(The neophyte is pushed into the midst of the assemblage, who stare at her and gesture and whisper among themselves. Later, at the end of the Mass, she will be submitted to the carnal desires of any member or members of the coven who request her. She will also assist in mass perversions)
High Priest (Announcing the dismissal from the formal Mass, proclaiming the Benediction for increased virility, and calling for the homage to Satan through feasting, dancing, and a general orgy till dawn)
“I, Joel, Prince of the Bats and High Priest of the Lord Satan, by this act do dismiss you from this service . . . Prepare to receive through me the Benediction of Our Lord Satan, that you may honour the Creator by the rite symbolical of his work …”
(As the altar bell is again rung nine times, the High Priest wanders among the assemblage, touching the genitals of each member of the coven with a special Satanic blessing to insure the success of the orgy to follow)
“Eva, Ave Satanas! Vade Lilith, vade retro Pan! Deus maledictus est!! Gloria tibi! Domine Lucifere, per omnia saecula saeculorum. Amen!!”
“Do What Thou Wilt, Shall Be the Whole of the Law!”
“Rege Satanas! Hail Satan!
Ave Satanas! Hail Satan!
Hail Satan!! Hail Satan!”
