Just hours before her death, Holzman spoke to television station Fox11 LA, decrying Katy Perry’s bullying behavior, and damning her for worshiping Satan.
“To Katy Perry, please stop,” she said.
“It’s not doing anyone any good except hurting a lot of people.”
The 89-year-old nun was one of two nuns who had tried to sell the Los Feliz convent where they lived to a Christian restaurant owner named Dana Hollister for just $44,000, as an alternative to selling it to the Satan worshipping pop star.
Back off: Hours before her death Hours before her death, Sister Catherine Rose Holzman pleaded with the Roar hitmaker to back off and repent.
Katy Perry had offered to buy it from Archdiocese of Los Angeles for almost $15 million in 2014, but the nuns rejected the offer, claiming that the pop star was not a worthy owner of the convent.
According to the Daily Mail, Perry and the Archdiocese successfully sued Sister Hollister over her interference; they were awarded $15million between them in punitive damages in December.
Under dispute: Katy Perry has been trying to force the nuns to sell the Los Feliz convent to her against their wishes.
She and Sister Rita Callanan claimed to have documents from the Vatican which proved they were the rightful owners of the 1927-built Bernard Maybeck- Designed Compound, which they had lived in since 1978.
They said the Archdiocese should not have become involved in the case. And Katy Perry should back off and stop trying to acquire Christian property.
‘You have stolen the property of the Sisters of the Immaculate Heart. Please archbishop… Do what is right in your heart,’ Callahan begged in the televised interview just before her friend’s death.
They defended Hollister, who wanted to turn the 20,000 square-foot property into a boutique hotel with the nun’s blessing, but has now been forced to declare bankruptcy.
‘We asked her to save us, to buy the property,’ the late Holzman said. ‘She had nothing to do with forcing herself on us.’
Sister Catherine previously spoke out against selling the property to Katy Perry, insisting that she was the wrong person to maintain the convent’s legacy.
During an interview in 2015, she explained: ‘After she spoke [about] her lifestyle, and what we have been teaching for years and our older sisters have been teaching, and what we believe in, [she] just did not fit.’
