Description: The visual perception of SCP-995 is impossible to describe as personnel who have seen it have been blinded by what appears to be damage to the occipital lobe. Memory is scarred, and personnel who attempt to remember will pass out from hypertension. One personnel ██████████ ██████ was able to remember it, and only described it as an "Infinite Devil Machine". ██████████ ██████ self-terminated afterwards. Holy water extracted from the casing via a "safe" method is a very dark black, and darkens whatever room it is placed in. The water is kept [DATA EXPUNGED].
SCP-995 was found in catacombs underneath Vatican City. All personnel of non-Abrahamic faith that participated in transporting the item are now deceased of apparently natural causes, with a few exception of causes already explainable by prior occurrences. Other workers do not wish to talk about it. Details kept on file. O5 clearance required.
Addendum: Those with Level 2 Security Clearance should see document #995-1
Document #995-1: Possibility of XK end-of-the-world scenario.
SCP-995 should not come in any contact with any item related to an XK class end-of-the-world scenario. XK items within close proximity of SCP-995 appeared to be increasingly distressed the closer they are to SCP-995. Refer to document #995-2.
Document #995-2: Event #995a
Personnel ██████ ██████████ attempted to remove SCP-995 from Site 62. Observed strength increase, endurance increase, and little regard for human life despite ██████ ██████████'s prior high morals. ██████ ██████████ was able to get SCP-995 to SCP-013. SCP-013 began to flee regardless of the proper amount of "worshippers". ██████ ██████████ slaughtered the unaware "worshippers" and attempted to destroy the holding facility of SCP-013. SCP-013 was later captured. ██████ ██████████ was terminated.
Document #995-3: Event #995b

Document #995-4: Event #995c
SCP-995 has been moved to a new site, but lead casing has been pierced. Holy water held inside lead casing has now leaked, and contact has been lost with the new site. Recorded images from the new site show tendrils escaping from the casing. All surviving personnel are due for interrogation, psychological evaluation and possible termination.
Document #995-4: Change in SCP-995
SCP-995 has openly began to communicate with Agent ██████. ██████ has described many events in history where SCP-995 has supposedly interfered with human affairs, despite no prior specialty in history. SCP-995 has also now successfully been described by Agent ██████, as a black mass similar to a black hole, however the surface of the mass oscillates and produces occasional tendrils which probe its containment area when not under surveillance.
Agent ██████ has been found to be continually loyal to the Foundation, even after communication, and therefore is not under consideration for termination at this time.
