Communist Indoctrination Subverting the Faith
David Martin | The Daily Knight
During the apparitions at Fatima in 1917, the year of the Bolshevik Revolution, the Blessed Virgin warned that if her requests to convert Russia were not heeded, this same Russia would “spread her errors throughout the world” unto that time when “various nations will be annihilated.”
Our Lady was referencing the errors of Communism, which were set in motion through the 1917 Bolshevik Revolution under Lenin. Communism’s focal point of attack from the beginning has been the papacy and the One True Church Under Peter, evidenced even by the fact that the Bolshevik Revolution providentially was waged in St. Petersburg, Russia, bearing the name of our first pope.
Grounded in the Jewish Talmud and encouraged most especially by Darwin’s theory of evolution, Communism is a dark, atheistic system of thought that was formulated by Kark Marx for the purpose of overthrowing Christianity and enslaving man under a world tyranny. It is anti-Church, anti-God, and antilife by nature.
The Errors of Communism
In a word, Communism seeks to raise up the clenched-fist against God and moral authority, but this revolt isn’t just in the form of civil violence and war but in the form of radical-left indoctrination. These are the errors of Communism spoken of by Our Lady of Fatima, which work conjointly with Modernism and Freemasonry. It is a dark, rebellious indoctrination that has horned its way into our educational, legal, and medical professions and which permeates every channel of communication today, save the conservative social media. These errors center around rebellious human “rights” to murder children in abortion and to engage in homosexuality.
Clenched Fist Applied in Ecclesial Context
This Leninist clenched-fist is especially evident in the Church with the spread of heresy and the empowerment of the laity, though we should point out that this perverting and anarchizing of the laity has primarily been the work of modernist bishops and priests. As in Christ’s time, we have rebellious high priests instigating the people to rebel Christ’s doctrines and miracles – especially the miracle of Transubstantiation at Holy Mass – to the end that a new church of man has emerged since Vatican II where the emphasis is on the community and not on God. We today are witnessing a form of spiritual revolution where we see lay people bossing the priests and assuming priestly functions as “Eucharistic ministers,” creative “liturgists,” women “lectors,” etc.
It is this post-conciliar revolution of the past 60 years that has been paving the way to all-out revolution in the streets. These errors of Communism will soon shift gears into the tanks of Communism, with the latter being a divine punishment for our having consented to the former. Our Lady did say that Russia will be the scourge of God, which follows the Biblical pattern of how God often uses agents of evil as ministers of divine justice.
Vatican II Hijacked
It has yet to dawn on many bishops that the modern changes in the Church were given to them by Satan. Lucifer and his henchmen (Freemasons) hijacked Vatican II and began jiggling the lure of change before the clergy, and because they bit the apple of change and began running after novelty and heresy (errors) the Church today is drawing upon itself the hand of divine justice.
The words of the prophet Ezechiel to God’s people apply:
“Now is an end come upon thee, and I will send my wrath upon thee, and I will judge thee according to thy ways: and I will set all thy abominations against thee. And my eye shall not spare thee, and I will shew thee no pity: but I will lay thy ways upon thee, and thy abominations shall be in the midst of thee: and you shall know that I am the Lord.” (Ezechiel 7:3,4)
Infiltration of Catholic Seminaries
It is no secret, and a well-known and documented fact, that the agents of Communism began entering the Catholic seminaries as far back as the late 30s for the purpose of destroying the Church from within. Over a thousand such agents had entered the seminaries prior to 1940. The testimonies of ex-communists like Bella Dodd and Manning Johnson who had testified before the House Un-American Activities Committee about their subversive activity more than confirm that these agents of the sickle and hammer had been building their forces against the Church with the intent of breaking in and re-indoctrinating the faithful with antichurch principles.
Their plan was to first absorb Catholic philosophy and teaching in the seminaries so as to give themselves inside access to masterfully communicate and pull the Catholic hierarchy away from their traditional roots, so that they in turn would embrace revolutionary principles and become pawns of ecclesial subversion. The Leninist “clenched fist” would now be applied in a liturgical way where the “empowerment of the laity” would be a means of overthrowing the Church's hierarchical structure so that a sense of democracy and fake-religious liberty could take precedence over juridical rules and regulations issuing from the Seat of Peter.
Ex-Communist Blows the Whistle
In the early fifties, Bella Dodd, a former high ranking official of the American Communist Party, testified before the House Un-American Activities Committee concerning the Communist infiltration of Church and State and provided detailed explanations of the Communist subversion of the Church. Speaking as a former insider, she said:
“In the 1930s we put eleven hundred men into the priesthood in order to destroy the Church from within.” In her public affidavit she also said: “In the late 1920s and 1930s, directives were sent from Moscow to all Communist Party organizations. In order to destroy the [Roman] Catholic Church from within, party members were to be planted in seminaries and within diocesan organizations… I, myself, put some 1,200 men in Catholic seminaries.”
According to Catholic professor Alice von Hildebrand, who was a friend of Dodd, she said that “when she was an active party member, she had dealt with no fewer than four cardinals within the Vatican ‘who were working for us,’ i.e. the Communist Party.”
Twelve years before Vatican II, Dodd also said: “Right now they are in the highest places in the Church.” She also predicted changes in the Church that would be so drastic that “you will not recognize the Catholic Church.”
Bella’s prophecy certainly has come to pass. The Church today is but a carcass of its former glory, stripped of holiness and piety, because the fathers of the Council lent their ears to these Red agents who called for “change.” Dodd describes their inside work of:
# Encouraging “the promotion of a pseudo-religion: something that resembled Catholicism but was not the real thing.”
# Labeling “the Church of the past as being oppressive, authoritarian, full of prejudices, arrogant in claiming to be the sole possessor of truth, and responsible for the divisions of religious bodies throughout the centuries.”
# Shaming Church leaders into “an ‘openness to the world,’ and to a more flexible attitude toward all religions.”
Clearly, this antichurch movement was already in motion before Vatican II. Though the agents of Communism had infiltrated seminaries and become “priests,” their activity was greatly restricted because of legitimate rules and discipline that were in force and because they as yet had not been provided with a forum to present their ideas to the Church. We might say that the enemy was in incubation lying in wait, but Vatican II is what hatched them forth.
Memoirs of an Anti-Apostle
Consider now the memoirs of an unrepentant Communist agent that were discovered by a Catholic nurse while caring for him following an auto accident he had been in. Unfortunately, he died a short time afterwards without being able to reveal his identity, so that he is known only by a code-name that was assigned to him by the Soviet Secret Police, that being SS 1025.
There were 1024 such agents that had gone before him, some of whom became bishops and who could have penetrated to high positions within the Vatican. The agent reveals how he became a “priest” who later collaborated with progressives at Vatican II to indoctrinate the Council with evil. The following is from his memoirs and is edited slightly to keep it concise. Parenthesized notes have been added by the editor to clarify the points made.
“We must put it into their heads, and especially priests, that the time has come to seek and work for the merging of all religions. We must, in particular, promote among Catholics a feeling of guilt concerning the ‘ONE TRUTH’ which they claim they alone possess. We must convince them that this attitude is a monstrous sin of pride, and that they must now seek reconciliation with other religions. This thought must be made to grow and be uppermost in their minds….
“I was fully confident now that I would eventually enter the seminary, and I was already making plans for the future especially as regards my work for the [Communist] Party. I was to inject into Catholic thinking a whole set of new values and a new train of thought. I was to foster remorse in their hearts, a gnawing sense of guilt, quoting the Gospel: ‘Be One as the Father and I are One.’ That sense of guilt must grow into an obsession to the point of rehabilitating Martin Luther. (Did Pope Francis not erect a statue of Martin Luther in the Vatican on Oct. 13, 2016?) They will be made to believe that schisms and heresies were caused by their own intransigence, that the time had come for them to atone and make reparation by throwing their arms open to their Protestant brethren and confessing their own sin of pride and stubbornness....
“We shall speak of man, stress his dignity and nobility. We must transform the language and thinking pattern of every Catholic. We must foster the mystique of the human race….We shall deify Man."
“Once Catholics have accepted this new mystique, we shall tell them to strip their churches bare of statues and ornaments because these things are unessential and abhorrent to their dear Protestant and Jewish brethren. Thus, all symbols of Catholic worship and devotion will go by the board, and when they are gone devotions will go too. Yes, we shall promote an iconoclastic zeal especially among the younger generation. They themselves will destroy that jumble of statues, pictures, vestments, reliquaries, organs, etc. It would be a good idea, too, to spread a ‘prophecy’ that says: ‘You shall see married priests, and you shall hear the Mass in the language of the people.’ This should make our task easier. We shall incite women to assert their right to the priesthood....
“In the Mass, the words "Real Presence" and "Transubstantiation" must be deleted. We shall speak of ‘Meal’ and ‘Eucharist’ instead. We shall destroy the Offertory and play down the Consecration and, at the same time, we shall stress the part played by the people. In the Mass, as it is today, the priest turns his back to the people and fills a sacrificial function which is intolerable. He appears to offer his Mass to the great Crucifix hanging over the ornate altar.
“We shall pull down the Crucifix, substitute a table for the altar, and turn it around so that the priest may assume a presidential function. The priest will speak to the people much more than before. In this manner the Mass will gradually cease to be regarded as an act of adoration to God, and will become a gathering and an act of human brotherhood. All these points will have to be elaborated in great detail and they may take anywhere up to 30 years before they are implemented, but I think that all my objectives will be fulfilled by 1974.”
Ring any bells? Can we understand why the Church is where it’s at today? Does this not confirm that the radical changes that came upon the Church after Vatican II were largely the work of Marxist agents that had captured key positions in our churches and seminaries?
In the early 60s, agent 1025 also said:
“We must begin to work for Vatican III even now. Vatican III, as I see it, will mean the destruction of the Church and the death of God. Then, I shall come forward, not to nail Christ upon His Cross, but God Himself into His coffin.”
This echoes the thinking of the late Cardinal Suenens, a Freemason (initiated 6-15-67, code-name “LESU”) and key moderator of the Second Vatican Council who notoriously advocated that ‘God should die.’
A Communist Pope?
Since Vatican II we indeed have seen the re-crucifixion of Christ with none less than Pope Francis wielding the blows by his insatiable quest to change the Church to the liking of Communists. Francis is an avid Communist sympathizer who many times has praised Communists. In a 2016 interview he famously said:
“It is the communists who think like Christians…. It is they who must help to achieve equality and freedom.”
Francis made a special trip to Bolivia in 2015 to praise President Evo Morales for successfully converting Bolivia from a Catholic to a Communist country that embraces indigenous Pachamama idol worship. During his visit Francis received from Morales a “sickle and hammer” crucifix that he took with him back to Rome.
Communism Controls the Church
Is it any wonder that Communism now controls the Catholic Church? The lockdown of churches over “Covid,” the imposition of Communion in the hand, the endorsing of feminism, the dignifying of LGBT, the teaching that the Mass is a “gathering” and “meal,” the use of lay “Eucharistic ministers,” the use of youth / music ministers, the use of women “lectors,” the promoting of “social justice” and the advocating of “open borders” are all part of the Communist plan to destroy the Catholic Church. The ugly hand of Communism has truly reached in today to desecrate the Body of Christ.
If this doctrinal debacle doesn’t speak of pestilent Communist activity the present geopolitical situation certainly does, as Putin now intensifies his brutal assault on the Ukraine while making repeated threats to nuke any country that stands in his way. The table is being set for WWIII and the ‘annihilation of nations’ while torpid religious leaders continue to cry “peace.”
We pray that the Blessed Virgin’s requests at Fatima for the true consecration and conversion of Russia might quickly be fulfilled to avert a major persecution of the Church that now appears to be imminent.
