Francis the Revolutionary and His Dollies
by Thomas A. Droleskey
"He got himself a dolly."
The late Father John Joseph "Jackie Boy" told me this back in the 1990s as he informed me what happened to a man I had known in seminary who was later installed as a presbyter in the counterfeit church of conciliarism.
What's a "dolly"?
In Father Sullivan's unique Connecticut slang, a "dolly" referred to a woman--almost any woman, mind you--who had attracted the attention of a man. In the case of the presbyter, though, he caught up with a "dolly" in one of his apostolates and then left the conciliar presbyterate to marry her civilly.
Indeed, Father Sullivan told us in class at Holy Apostles Seminary in September of 1983, "You tell me you don't like dollies and I'm gonna say that that you're a queer." (He emphasized this point in a variety of ways during many of his lectures. Some of this gem of "Sully Speak" have been cited in previous articles, including Jackie Boy Remembered Yet Again.) "I used to dance to cheek to cheek with the dollies at Bulkeley (no, that's not a misspelling) High School in West Hartford, Connecticut.
Rules-breaker that he was, Father Sullivan would even drive down from Connecticut to New York City with pal, Father Aloysius "Al" Healy, to the enjoy the nightlife of New York City now and again. Yes, that’s right, Father Sullivan enjoyed the nightlife. On one occasion, Father
Sullivan, dressed in civilian clothes, went dancing cheek to cheek with
a “dolly.” While dancing with the dolly, Father Sullivan said, “You see
that fellow over there,” pointing to his friend Father Healy. “Well,
that guy’s a priest. I wouldn’t have anything to do with him.” Sullivan
said with a wink, “Me? I’m a social worker.” The “dolly” knew what the
score was, enjoying her dance with the boy from Bulkeley High School who
liked to show off his dancing skills. Mind you, I am NOT saying that this was a good example of priestly behavior. It wasn't. However, Father Sullivan sure liked to look and dance with the "dollies."
The talking apostate who is the Petrine Minister of the counterfeit church of conciliarism, Jorge Mario Bergoglio/Francis, liked "dollies" in his own right. In his case, though, this revolutionary who is thoroughly committed to the doctrinal, liturgical and moral revolutions of conciliarism wants to place the "dollies" into positions of prominence within the Occupy Vatican movement, being open to the appointment of women to serve as prefects within the Vatican dicasteries. Yup. This is the man who is going to fulfill Our Lady's Fatima Message. Sure. Why don't I believe that this is the case? Well, just review Francis The Deceiver.
The chief of Francis The Feminist's new group of commissars, Oscar Andres Rodriguez "Cardinal"
Maradiaga, the conciliar "archbishop" of Tegucigalpa. Honduras, has said that it is his hope that his pal Bergoglio/Francis will appoint women to head Vatican dicasteries:
POPE FRANCIS plans to appoint lay women to top jobs in the Vatican and to dilute the power of Italian cardinals in a radical shake-up of the Catholic Church’s government following a series of scandals.
In a move branded as “revolutionary” by Vatican watchers, the Pope last weekend appointed eight cardinals to advise him on the governance and reform of the Curia, the church’s bureaucracy which has been tainted by controversies over child sex abuse by priests, leaks of papal files and allegations of corruption.
In an interview with The Sunday Times, Cardinal Oscar Andres Rodriguez Maradiaga of Honduras, whom Francis named to head the panel and who is now seen as a “power behind the papal throne”, predicted a difficult fight ahead for the Argentine pontiff.
“What we’ve seen during this month and the reactions of the whole world have conveyed hope to millions of the faithful and brought closer many people who felt distant from the church,” said Maradiaga, who is the Archbishop of Tegucigalpa.
But he cautioned: “His task will not be an easy one, especially when he has to make some necessary changes.”
Tipped as a papal contender in the conclave which picked Francis, Maradiaga, 70, is known for his dynamism. He is a pilot, plays the saxophone and the piano and speaks six languages. As the head of Caritas Internationalis, the church’s charitable arm, he has criticised the Curia and shares the Pope’s vision of “a poor church, for the poor”.
Asked about hopes that the Pope will appoint more women to top Vatican jobs, Maradiaga replied: “This wish is eagerly shared by [all] the continents.”
Last month Francis, in a break with tradition, washed the feet of two young women at a juvenile detention centre, a surprising departure from church rules that restrict the Holy Thursday ritual to men.
“Francis’s predecessor [Benedict XVI] started to promote women by appointing them to be the secretaries of some departments. But if there are cases where a woman can do a better job than a man as the head of a department, then why not?” said a Vatican prelate.
Maradiaga spoke of the need to give the global church a greater voice amid calls for change in the 200-member, European-dominated College of Cardinals, traditionally the Pope’s primary advisers.
“The holy father wants to listen to voices from the whole church and therefore has nominated cardinals from every continent [to the panel],” said Maradiaga.
During pre-conclave meetings, he said, several cardinals had criticised the “very large and disproportionate number of cardinals from Europe compared with the other continents and within Europe a greater number of Italians”. The cardinals had urged “a greater presence from the rest of the church”.
Only one Italian, Giuseppe Bertello, the governor of the Vatican, has been put on the new panel. The Pope intends to dilute the domination of both cardinals and top Vatican officials from Europe — and especially Italy — and to shift the focus from the developed north to the developing south, which contains most of the world’s Catholics.
Asked how future reforms could help to turn the page on past scandals, including allegations of money laundering that had involved the Institute for Religious Works, better known as the Vatican Bank, Maradiaga said: “The Curia fulfils a well deserving role and the majority of those who serve within it are people of excellent quality.
“If some have failed we’ll find a way to turn these weaknesses into opportunities,” he added.
The new panel headed by Maradiaga is Francis’s first significant decision, so much so that it is seen as a radical step towards more democracy in the church.
Alberto Melloni, an Italian church historian, called it “the most important step in the history of the church for the past 10 centuries”.
Although the panel will have an advisory role, it will bypass the Vatican bureaucracy and give the Pope what Maradiaga calls “first-hand information” from bishoprics worldwide.
Before the last conclave several cardinals had appealed for more “collegiality” in the way the church is run and for sharing more power with local churches. The panel’s other members are from Chile, America, Italy, Germany, Australia, India and the Democratic Republic of Congo. Many have called for a radical shake-up of the Curia.

Some cardinals have called for term limits on Vatican jobs to prevent priests
from becoming career bureaucrats and for better financial reporting to clean
up the Vatican’s finances. Budget cuts are also likely.
In a taste of austerity to come, Francis last week scrapped the tradition that
the Vatican’s 4,000 employees are paid a bonus when a pope is elected. He
chose instead to give the money, €500 (£430) for each worker, to charity.
Given the scale of his task, Maradiaga will have less time to fly the
Beechcraft King Air that friends lend him. He comes from a family of pilots
and said that he had been fascinated by aviation since he was a child.
“I was able to learn to fly and every now and again I do so. It makes me feel
closer to the Lord,” he said. (Petrine Minister's strongman blasts old guard aside.)
Ever steeped in the anti-Incarnational premises of Modernity with which Modernism has made its "official reconciliation," revolutionaries such as Oscar Andres Rodriguez Maradiaga believe that endless change in the direction of egalitarianism and democracy.
Women must be "empowered" even though the fairest flower of our race, the Blessed Virgin Mary, without whose perfect fiat to the will of God the Father we would not have been saved, described herself in the humblest of terms:
 And in the sixth month, the angel Gabriel was sent from God into a city of Galilee, called Nazareth,  To a virgin espoused to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David; and the virgin' s name was Mary.  And the angel being come in, said unto her: Hail, full of grace, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women.  Who having heard, was troubled at his saying, and thought with herself what manner of salutation this should be.  And the angel said to her: Fear not, Mary, for thou hast found grace with God.
 Behold thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and shalt bring forth a son; and thou shalt call his name Jesus.  He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the most High; and
the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of David his father; and he
shall reign in the house of Jacob for ever.  And of his kingdom there shall be no end.  And Mary said to the angel: How shall this be done, because I know not man?  And the angel answering, said to her: The Holy Ghost shall come upon
thee, and the power of the most High shall overshadow thee. And
therefore also the Holy which shall be born of thee shall be called the
Son of God.
 And behold thy cousin Elizabeth, she also hath conceived a son in her
old age; and this is the sixth month with her that is called barren:  Because no word shall be impossible with God.  And Mary said: Behold the handmaid of the Lord; be it done to me according to thy word. And the angel departed from her.  And Mary rising up in those days, went into the hill country with haste into a city of Juda.  And she entered into the house of Zachary, and saluted Elizabeth.
 And it came to pass, that when Elizabeth heard the salutation of Mary,
the infant leaped in her womb. And Elizabeth was filled with the Holy
Ghost:  And she cried out with a loud voice, and said: Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb.  And whence is this to me, that the mother of my Lord should come to me?  For behold as soon as the voice of thy salutation sounded in my ears, the infant in my womb leaped for joy.  And blessed art thou that hast believed, because those things shall be accomplished that were spoken to thee by the Lord.
 And Mary said: My soul doth magnify the Lord.  And my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour.  Because he hath regarded the humility of his handmaid; for behold from henceforth all generations shall call me blessed.  Because he that is mighty, hath done great things to me; and holy is his name.  And his mercy is from generation unto generations, to them that fear him.
 He hath shewed might in his arm: he hath scattered the proud in the conceit of their heart.  He hath put down the mighty from their seat, and hath exalted the humble.  He hath filled the hungry with good things; and the rich he hath sent empty away.  He hath received Israel his servant, being mindful of his mercy:  As he spoke to our fathers, to Abraham and to his seed for ever. (Luke 1: 26-55.)
Our Lady did not seek to exalt herself into a position of importance or prominence. She did not seek to "empower" herself. God Himself exalteth His handmaid, who was ever ready to do His will, yes, to the point of suffering and dying a martyr's death spiritually as she stood at the Cross of her Divine Son, the Word Who was made flesh in her Virginal and Immaculate Womb at the Annunciation by the power of God the Holy Ghost at the Annunciation.
Indeed, God has lifted up humble, self-effacing women to be chosen for extraordinary mystical experiences and/or to undertake a specific mission. He never rewards those who seek to exalt self or to make demands to have a role in the governance of Holy Mother Church that defies the distinctions between men and women both in the Order of Creation (Nature) and the Order of Grace (Redemption).
Saint Elizabeth of Hungary was a humble handmaid of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ who gave of her very sustenance to feed, clothe and shelter the poor, most of whom turned their back on her and her children after she was turned out of Wartburg Castle following the death of her husband, Landgrieve Louis of Thuringia, by her husband's jealous brothers.
Saint Joan of Arc was chosen from her lowly work to be the instrument to convince the future King Charles VII to take his rightful place on the French throne and to defeat the English forces that had occupied part of France for over a hundred years.
Saint Margaret of Scotland performed extraordinary feats of charity for the poor, humbling themselves before them even though she was the Queen of Scotland, leading a life of complete piety out of the view of those she served.
Saint Elizabeth of Portugal, a great-niece of her namesake, Saint Elizabeth of Hungary, endured grave injustices and jealousy because of her charitable work for the poor and her personal piety, serving as a conciliator in wars. fearing not to ride onto battlefields on two occasions to plead for cessations of hostilities.
Saint Bridget of Sweden, Saint Gertrude the Great of Helfta and Saint Mechtilde, the Venerable Mary of Agreda and, among other women, the Venerable Anne Katherine Emmerich each were given mystical revelations that have provided Holy Mother Church with meditations and insights into the Passion and Death of Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ and, in the cases of Saint Gertrude and Saint Mechtilde, revelations concerning the secrets of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus that foreshadowed Our Lord's apparitions to Saint Margaret Mary Alacoque by four hundred years. None of these women sought to exalt herself. Each sought to live lives of profound prayer, penance and mortification.
Saint Catherine of Siena suffered much within her own family for her desire to become a Dominican Tertiary, being reduced at one point to the status of a servant in her own house as her domineering mother showed her displeasure with her for refusing to marry in order to pursue perfection in the Third Order of Penance of Saint Dominic. This mystic and servant of the poor and sick, especially during the plague that devastated much of Siena of Europe, became a spiritual director to priests and prevailed upon Pope Gregory XI to return the papacy from exile in Avignon, France, back to the See of Saint Peter in Rome. She sought none of this for herself.
Saint Margaret Mary Alacoque, who suffered verbal assaults from relatives and plunged deep into poverty following the death of her father, was mocked and reviled in the religious life for her piety as many of her fellow religious, influenced by the coldness of the Catholic version of Calvinism, Jansenism, persecuted her for her claims to have been visited by Our Lord and that He had chosen her, of all people, to reveal intimate secrets of His Most Sacred Heart, to Which He desired her to foster a public cult of adoration and honor. She suffered all in equanimity and without complaint as a devoted daughter of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus.
Saint Catherine Laboure, whose mother died when she was nine years ago, was so humble before the sight of the Most Blessed Trinity that the very Mother of God herself came to her to request that a medal be struck in honor of her Immaculate Conception and as the Medatrix of All Graces. Save for her confessor, Father Jean-Marie Aladel, who did not believe her at first (a disbelief he would express in 1840, ten years after Our Lady's first apparition to Saint Catherine Laboure, when Sister Justine Bisqueyburo of the same Daughters of Charity convention at Rue de Bac in Paris explained that Our Lady had given her the Green Scapular to promote), almost no one knew with certainly until just shortly before her death that she was the religious sister to whom Our Lady had appeared. This chosen soul suffered at the hands of a religious superior who was seventeen years her junior for a time. She did not complain. She accepted all with humility.
Saint Bernadette Soubirous, the peasant girl whose family lived in the former city jail of Lourdes, France, was chosen by Our Lady to convey to the world her pleas for "penance, penance, penance," saying on March 25, 1858, "I am the Immaculate Conception." Saint Bernadette told the novices at the Sister of Charity convent t in Nevers, France, that they would never be happy without obedience, something that she demonstrated completely during her time of persecution by Sister Marie Therese Vazous, who had taught her in Lourdes and disliked her from the beginning and disbelieved that Our Lady had appeared to her. There was no trace of feminism or desire for earthly "empowerment" in the saintly soul of Saint Bernadette Soubirous, whose body remains incorrupt.
Our Lady chose three shepherd children, Jacinta and Francisco Marto and their cousin, Lucia dos Santos, to be the messengers of one of the final remedies for our time, devotion to her Immaculate Heart and the three secrets she revealed to them in the Cova da Iria near Fatima, Portugal, that related very much to our situation in the madness of Modernity and Modernism.
These chosen souls, among so many others, never sought self. They sought only to hide themselves from the world and to will of God in perfect imitation of Our Lady herself.
Jorge Mario Bergoglio/Francis and pals of his such as Oscar Andres Rodriguez
Maradiaga want to appease feminists in order to prove themselves egalitarian and "democratic" to the world.
Such revolutionaries have been denounced by our true popes time and time again, including by Pope Saint Pius X in Pascendi Dominici Gregis, September 8, 1907:
It remains for Us now to say a few words about the Modernist as reformer. From
all that has preceded, it is abundantly clear how great and how eager
is the passion of such men for innovation. In all Catholicism there is
absolutely nothing on which it does not fasten. They wish philosophy to
be reformed, especially in the ecclesiastical seminaries. They
wish the scholastic philosophy to be relegated to the history of
philosophy and to be classed among absolute systems, and the young men
to be taught modern philosophy which alone is true and suited to the
times in which we live. They desire the reform of theology:
rational theology is to have modern philosophy for its foundation, and
positive theology is to be founded on the history of dogma. As for
history, it must be written and taught only according to their methods
and modern principles. Dogmas and their evolution, they affirm, are to
be harmonized with science and history. In the Catechism no dogmas are
to be inserted except those that have been reformed and are within the
capacity of the people. Regarding worship, they say, the number of
external devotions is to be reduced, and steps must be taken to prevent
their further increase, though, indeed, some of the admirers of
symbolism are disposed to be more indulgent on this head. They cry out
that ecclesiastical government requires to be reformed in all its
branches, but especially in its disciplinary and dogmatic departments
They insist that both outwardly and inwardly it must be brought into
harmony with the modern conscience which now wholly tends towards
democracy; a share in ecclesiastical government should therefore be
given to the lower ranks of the clergy and even to the laity and
authority which is too much concentrated should be decentralized The
Roman Congregations and especially the index and the Holy Office, must
be likewise modified The ecclesiastical authority must alter its line of
conduct in the social and political world; while keeping outside
political organizations it must adapt itself to them in order to
penetrate them with its spirit. With regard to morals, they
adopt the principle of the Americanists, that the active virtues are
more important than the passive, and are to be more encouraged in
practice. They ask that the clergy should return to their
primitive humility and poverty, and that in their ideas and action they
should admit the principles of Modernism; and there are some who, gladly
listening to the teaching of their Protestant masters, would desire the
suppression of the celibacy of the clergy. What is there left in the
Church which is not to be reformed by them and according to their
principles? (Pope Saint Pius X, Pascendi Dominici Gregis, No. 38, September 8, 1907.)
Can it get any clearer?
Modernists are revolutionaries who desire to create a false church on the principles of the world that are in abject defiance of the Order of Nature and of the Order of Grace.
The only way to reform the curia, an institution that has been rife with personal and financial corruption under the most saintly of the true Roman Pontiffs on so many occasions, is to staff it with bishops who are members of the Catholic Church. Jorge Mario Bergoglio is layman, not a bishop or a priest. He is not a Catholic. Oscar Andres Rodriguez
Maradiaga is a priest but not a bishop. He, like Bergoglio, is not a Catholic. Neither Maradiaga's seven other commissars on the "super curia" created recently by Bergoglio The Democrat.
They can have all of the "dollies" they like in their version of the curia as they head a false church, one that is the counterfeit ape of the Catholic Church that Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ founded upon the Rock of Peter, the Pope. They can institute all of the "democratic" reforms imaginable as they tickle the ears of Catholics and non-Catholics alike with the sugar plumb fairies of an endless succession of reforms and changes, each of which were structured into the very ambiguous language of the documents of the "Second" Vatican Council, something that Walter Kasper attested to recently (see German Apostate Walter Kasper Says Argentine Apostate Jorge Mario Bergoglio Will Bring New Life to False Church; also see Francis And The Commissars).
It's not only the "dollies" that Francis the Revolutionary is seeking to appease. He also means to let his pro-abortion, pro-perversity Talmudist pal Abraham Skorka, with whom he keeps in close contact, have a powerful voice in Vatican decision-making, including, it appears, whether to open up the archives of Pope Pius XII's wartime record so as to placate those who deny the Sacred Divinity of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ who are demanding access to the files contained therein before the Vatican can receive their "permission" to "beatify" and "canonize" Papa Pacelli:
Rabbi Abraham Skorka, who has known the Argentine former Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio for 20 years, said he had discussed the role of Pius XII – the man long dubbed as "Hitler's Pope" – at length with the new pontiff.
The Rabbi, who recently co-authored On Heaven and Earth, a book of interviews with his friend, said he had made clear that he thought Pius's legacy ought to be "investigated thoroughly".
"It's a terribly sensitive issue, but he says that it must be investigated thoroughly," he said. "I have no doubt that he will move to open the archives."
In an interview with The Tablet, Rabbi Skorka said he was convinced his friend – who he predicted would be a "revolutionary" Pope – favoured opening the archives to clarify once and for all Pius's role.
It follows decades of speculation about the extent to which Pius cooperated with the Fascist regime in Italy and Nazi Germany during his reign which began in 1939.
Critics have accused him of remaining silent over the holocaust – a suspicion which has only been strengthened by the Vatican's refusal so far to give scholars access to the archives from his reign.
But there is also evidence that Pius may have helped arranged the exodus of 200,000 Jews from Germany in the 1930s.
Cardinal Eugenio Pacelli, as he was known before his election as Pope, is said to have written to archbishops around the world urging them to secure visas for "non-Aryan Catholics" and Jewish converts to Christianity to travel to their countries from Germany.
Moves towards canonising Pius XII have been under way in Rome for decades but two years ago a group of prominent Roman Catholic scholars publicly urged Pope Emeritus Benedict to halt the process until more was known about his wartime role by opening the archives.
Benedict had attracted criticism only months before when he approved a decree recognising Pius's "heroic virtues", a statement which moved him a step closer to sainthood.
Rabbi Skorka, who is now the rector of the Latin American Rabbinical Seminary in Argentina, built a close friendship with Cardinal Bergoglio during his time as Archbishop of Buenos Aires.
The two leaders attended each other's services and their friendship paved the way for a closer relationship between Catholics and Jews in Argentina, which has the largest Jewish population in Latin America.
The two leaders discuss Pius's attitudes to the war in their book but conclude that it is impossible to draw firm conclusions.
Rabbi Skorka, told The Tablet that Francis was a staunch opponent of anti-Semitism or "any kind of fanaticism" and added: "What is certain is that the Jews now have a very good partner in the Vatican."
He disclosed that the Pope had twice telephoned him in Buenos Aires since his election as Pope last month and they had privately discussed his hopes for his pontificate.
"I think he's going to change everything that he believes needs to be changed," he said.
"He is not a person to take on this role in a passive way.
"He's not a person who stays quiet when he knows that there is work to be done." He predicted that the Pope was unlikely to change Church doctrines but would revolutionise it in other aspects.
"On matters of customs, protocol, flamboyance, luxury, as well as in his approach to the poor, he is a revolutionary," he said.
He said that the first time the Pope had called from Rome he had picked up the telephone to hear a voice telling him jokily: "Hello it's Bergoglio.
"They trapped me here in Rome and they won't let me come home." (Francis the Revolutionary 'will open files on Hitler's Pope', says Pro-Death, Pro-Perversity Talmudist.)
Listen up, Abe and Jorge.
Let me clear up your lack of understanding about Pope Pius XII's wartime record. Just look in the appendix below.
Catering to women who want to be empowered?
Seeking to make the Church Militant on earth, which is monarchical and thus hierarchial of her very Divine Constitution, more egalitarian and democratic?
Seeking to cater to the contemporary claimants of Judaism?
Such is truly the stuff of revolutionaries.
Such is truly the stuff of Modernist revolutionaries such as Jorge Mario Bergoglio and his pal Oscar Andres Rodriguez Maradiaga.
Such is the stuff the revolutionary doctrines, liturgies, moral teaching and pastoral praxes of the counterfeit church of conciliarism.
Such is the stuff of Hell itself.
We must fear to offend no man as we lift
high the Cross of the Divine Redeemer, making sure to do so in a spirit
of gratitude for the gift of the true Faith and to bear with those whom
God's Providence has placed in our paths with kindliness and patience,
praying to God the Holy Ghost to give us the prudence to know what to
say and how and when to say it as we seek the eternal good of others.
Our proclamation of the true Faith might be as simple as handing out a
Green Scapular to someone we meet (as my wife does every day, receiving
warm expressions of gratitude from those to whom she has given the Green
Scapular when and if we see that person again), praying "Immaculate
Heart of Mary, pray for us now and at the hour our death" for each
person to whom we give it.
We might have the opportunity on other occasions to
give a fallen away Catholic a blessed Rosary and an instruction booklet
as to how to pray it in the event that they had never learned (or have
forgotten over the years) to do so.
There are any number of ways that we
can bear witness to the Faith, including by means of our performing the
Spiritual and Corporal Works of Mercy, undergirding each of our efforts
as the consecrated slaves of Our Lord Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ through Our Lady's Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart by a life of fervent
prayer, especially before the Blessed Sacrament, if at all possible, and to the Mother of
God, especially by means of her Most Holy Rosary, and by our regular and
sincere use of the Sacrament of Penance. And each of our homes should
be enthroned to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and to the Sorrowful and
Immaculate Heart of Mary, thereby helping us to establish and to
maintain a Christendom in miniature as our families attempt to avoid the
allure of the world and to read more about the lives of the saints so
that we can attempt to imitate their virtues more readily and more
perfectly on a daily basis.
Faith is indeed a gift. It can be lost. We must
nurture the Faith every day of our lives, holding fast to the perennial
teaching of the Catholic Church as we reject any concessions at all to conciliarism
or to the nonexistent legitimacy of its false shepherds. The counterfeit
religion of conciliarism dispenses with the necessity of seeking with
urgency the conversion of all men to the true Church. The true religion
has not done so and will never do so.
Asking Our Lady to keep our Faith strong in the midst
of apostasy and betrayal, may we pray as many Rosaries each day as our
state-in-life permits, thereby helping to plant the seeds for the
conversion of more and more people to the true Faith and making it more possible, please God and by the intercession of His
Most Blessed Mother, where there will be a world which, shaped by the Triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, will indeed prosper unto the eternal salvation of all men under the sweet yoke of Christ the King.
The wood of the Holy Cross is for us very tree of eternal
life. May we, by our patient and loving and joyful acceptance of each
and every cross--personal, social, ecclesiastical that is sent to us by
the hand of God Himself, help to win souls for the true Faith as we give
all to the Most Sacred heart of Jesus through the Sorrowful and
Immaculate Heart of Mary.
Isn't it time to pray a Rosary now?
Immaculate Heart of Mary, triumph soon.
Viva Cristo Rey! Vivat Christus Rex!
Our Lady of Fatima, pray for us.
Saint Joseph, pray for us.
Saints Peter and Paul, pray for us.
Saint John the Baptist, pray for us.
Saint John the Evangelist, pray for us.
Saint Michael the Archangel, pray for us.
Saint Gabriel the Archangel, pray for us.
Saint Raphael the Archangel, pray for us.
Saints Joachim and Anne, pray for us.
Saints Caspar, Melchior and Balthasar, pray for us.
Saints Soter and Caius, pray for us.

The Truth About Pope Pius XII's Wartime Record
(Extracted and Adapted from Previous Articles)
The contemporaneous record of those who lived through Pope Pius XII's pontificate speaks for itself about his wartime record:
The voice of Pius XII is a lonely voice in the
silence and darkness enveloping Europe this Christmas. The Pope
reiterates what he has said before. In general, he repeats, although
with greater definiteness, the five-point plan for peace which he first
enunciated in his Christmas message after the war broke out in 1939. His
program agrees in fundamentals with the Roosevelt-Churchill eight-point
declaration. It calls for respect for treaties and the end of the
possibility of aggression, equal treatment for minorities, freedom from
religious persecution. It goes farther than the Atlantic Charter in
advocating an end of all national monopolies of economic wealth, and so
far as the eight points, which demands complete disarmament for Germany
pending some future limitation of arms for all nations.
The Pontiff emphasized principles of international
morality with which most men of good-will agree. He uttered the ideas a
spiritual leader would be expected to express in time of war. Yet his
words sound strange and bold in the Europe of today, and we comprehend
the complete submergence and enslavement of great nations, the very
sources of our civilization, as we realize that he is about the only
ruler left o the Continent of Europe who dares to raise his voice at
all. The last tiny islands of neutrality are so hemmed in and
overshadowed by war and fear that no one but the Pope is still able to
speak aloud in the name of the Prince of Peace. This is indeed a measure
of the "moral devastation" he describes as the accompaniment of
physical ruin and inconceivable human suffering.
In calling for a "real new order" based on
"liberty, justice and love," to be attained only by a "return to social
and international principles capable of creating a barrier against the
abuse of liberty and the abuse of power," the Pope put himself squarely
against Hitlerism. Recognizing that there is no road open to agreement
between belligerents "whose reciprocal war aims and programs seem to be
irreconcilable," he left no doubt that the Nazi aims are also
irreconcilable with his own conception of a Christian peace. "The new
order which must arise out of this war," he asserted, "must be based on
principles." And that implies only one end to the war. (The New York Times, December 25, 1941.)
No Christmas sermon reaches a larger congregation
than the message Pope Pius XII addresses to a war-torn world at this
season. This Christmas more than ever he is a lonely voice crying out of
the silence of a continent. The Pulpit whence he speaks is more than
ever like the Rock on which the Church was founded, a tiny island lashed
and surrounded by a sea of war. In these circumstances, in any
circumstances, indeed, no one would expect the Pope to speak as a
political leader, or a war leader, or in any other role than that of a
preacher ordained to stand above the battle, tied impartially, as he
says, to all people and willing to collaborate in any new order which
will bring a just peace.
But just because the Pope speaks to and in some
sense for all the peoples at war, the clear stand he takes on the
fundamental issues of the conflict has greater weight and authority.
When a leader bound impartially to nations on both sides condemns as
heresy the new form of national state which subordinates everything to
itself: when he declares that whoever wants peace must protect against
"arbitrary attacks" the "juridical safety of individuals:" when he
assails violent occupation of territory, the exile and persecution of
human beings for no reason other than race or political opinion: when he
says that people must fight for a just and decent peace, a "total
peace" — the "impartial judgment" is like a verdict in a high court of
Pope Pius expresses as passionately as any leader
on our side the war aims of the struggle for freedom when he says that
those who aim at building a new world must fight for free choice of
government and religious order. They must refuse that the state should
make of individuals a herd of whom the state disposes as if they were a
lifeless thing. (The New York Times, December 25, 1942.) (The Christmas Editorials on Pope Pius XII.)
These editorials in The New York Times in 1941 and 1942 expressed beliefs that were held by many in the
Talmudic Jewish community during and immediately after World War II,
long before The Deputy began to propagandize lies against Pope Pius XII.
Further Israeli Prime Minister Golda Meir praised Pope Pius XII after
his death in 1958 for what he had done to helped Jews during World War
II. This article, written by
Sister Margherita Marchione. Ph.D., contains a brilliant refutation of
the baseless charges still being made by Talmudic Jews that have been
responsible, at least in part, for the conciliar Vatican's decision to
"slow down" its bogus "canonization" process:
Pope Pius XII was not a German collaborator nor was
he pro-Nazi. Neither was he inactive nor silent. As a member of the
Catholic Church, I resent the blatant accusations against the diplomacy
of the Pope and the Church during World War II. This is not only
indecent journalism but it also an injustice toward a man who saved more
Jews than any other person, including Oscar Schindler and Raoul
Wallenberg. Unfortunately even in the new Holocaust Museum at Battery
Park in New York City the Pope is unjustly criticized. It is
historically inaccurate to charge him with "silence."
Should the media be allowed to perpetuate such
falsehoods? Documents prove that these misrepresentations are untrue.
Pius XII spoke out as much as he could, and was able to do more with
actions than with words. To the very end, he was convinced that, should
he denounce Hitler publicly, there would be retaliation. And there was.
Whenever protests were made, treatment of prisoners worsened
immediately. Robert Kempner, the American who served as deputy chief of
the Nuremburg war-crimes tribunal, wrote: "All the arguments and
writings eventually used by the Catholic Church against Hitler only
provoked suicide; the execution of Jews was followed by that of Catholic
Pius XII—through his public discourses, his appeals
to governments, and his secret diplomacy—was engaged more than any
other individual in the effort to curb the war and rebuild the peace.
Documents show that Pius XII was in contact with the German generals who
sought to overthrow Hitler. Documents also show that the Jewish
community received enormous help: Pius XII’s personal funds ransomed
Jews from Nazis. Papal representatives in Croatia, Hungary, and Romania
intervened to stop deportations. The Pope called for a peace conference
involving Italy, France, England, Germany, and Poland in 1939, in a
last-minute bid to avert bloodshed.
An interesting document is the testimony of Albert
Einstein who, disenchanted by the silence of universities and editors of
newspapers, stated in Time magazine (December 23, 1940): "Only
the Church stood squarely across the path of Hitler’s campaign for
suppressing truth. …The Church alone has had the courage and persistence
to stand for intellectual truth and moral freedom." Indeed, executing
the directives of Pope Pius XII, religious men and women opened their
doors to save the Jews.
Never were the Jews and the Vatican so close as
during World War II. The Vatican was the only place on the continent
where they had any friends. Pope Pius XII’s response to the plight of
the Jews was to save as many as possible. Yet little has been done to
stop the criticism of Pius XII that began in 1963, when Rolf Hochhuth
portrayed him as a Nazi collaborator in the play "The Deputy." In
contrast to the image suggested by this play, Vatican records indicate
that the Church operated an underground railroad that rescued 800,000
European Jews from the Holocaust. After a careful study of available
documents, whoever is interested in the truth will no longer condemn the
actions of Pope Pius XII’s words and the Catholic Church during this
An honest evaluation of Pope Pius XII’s words and
actions will exonerate him from false accusations and show that he has
been unjustly maligned. The Pope neither favored nor was favored by the
Nazis. The day after his election (March 3, 1939), the Nazi newspaper, Berliner Morganpost stated its position clearly: "the election of Cardinal Pacelli is not
accepted with favor in Germany because he was always opposed to Nazism."
The New York Times editorial (December 25,
1942) was specific: "The voice of Pius XII is a lonely voice in the
silence and darkness enveloping Europe this Christmas...He is about the
only ruler left on the Continent of Europe who dares to raise his voice
at all." The Pope’s Christmas message was also interpreted in the
Gestapo report: "in a manner never known before...the Pope has
repudiated the National Socialist New European Order [Nazism]. It is
true, the Pope does not refer to the National Socialists in Germany by
name, but his speech is one long attack on everything we stand for.
…Here he is clearly speaking on behalf of the Jews." Perhaps the rest of
the world should interpret the Pope’s words as they were meant and,
undoubtedly, correctly understood by the Nazis, i.e.: POPE PIUS XII WAS ALWAYS OPPOSED TO NAZISM.
The Jewish Community publicly acknowledged the
wisdom of Pope Pius XII’s diplomacy. In September 1945, Dr. Joseph
Nathan—who represented the Hebrew Commission—stated "Above all, we
acknowledge the Supreme Pontiff and the religious men and women who,
executing the directives of the Holy Father, recognized the persecuted
as their brothers and, with great abnegation, hastened to help them,
disregarding the terrible dangers to which they were exposed." In 1958,
at the death of Pope Pius XII, Golda Meir sent an eloquent message: "We
share in the grief of humanity. …When fearful martyrdom came to our
people, the voice of the Pope was raised for its victims. The life of
our times was enriched by a voice speaking out about great moral truths
above the tumult of daily conflict. We mourn a great servant of peace." (The Truth About Pope Pius XII.)
Admitting that the remote
causes for the unrelenting nature of the Talmudic attacks upon the
memory of Pope Pius XII stems from a hatred of the Faith and Talmudic
Judaism's alliances with all other naturalist and anti-Theistic forces
imaginable, including Bolshevism, there is a proximate reason for the
calumnies that have been aimed at Pope Pius XII: this Successor of Saint
Peter is directly, personally responsible for the conversion to the
Catholic Faith of the Grand Rabbi of Rome, Israel Zolli, on February 13,
1945. Rabbi Zolli converted to the true Faith at the hands of Pope Pius
XII, taking the baptismal name of Eugenio Maria after the former
Eugenio Maria Giuseppe Giovanni Pacelli himself.
The fact that a man who
came from a long line of Talmudic rabbis dared to convert to the hated
Catholic Faith in the final months of World War II in Europe infuriated
the devil, who used his legions in the ranks of Talmudic Judaism to make
war upon Pope Pius XII after his death and when they knew that his very
enemies inside of the conciliar Vatican itself, men whom, most
ironically, that Pope Pius XII had appointed and promoted (appointees
that the office of the Promoter of the Faith--devil's advocate--in the
Catholic Church would use to argue against the canonization of Pope Pius
II), would do nothing to stop.
Here is Eugenio Maria Zolli's account of his conversion as contained in his autobiography, Before the Dawn:
Rabbi Zolli, did you become a convert out of
gratitude towards the Pope, who did so much for the Jews of Italy during
the Nazi persecution?
This question was addressed to me, and still is, by
reporters. In many interviews (inaccurate or invented) they describe me
as answering in the affirmative. Why? I suppose to please readers by
providing them with a precise and pleasing explanation. In reality my
reply has always been in the negative, but this ought not to be
interpreted as a lack of gratitude. ...At the very hour in which the
terrible sacrificial rite of blood was initiated, the destruction en
masse in the name of race, of nation, of the state, concentrating the
three into one factor: blood precisely then, in the midst of so many
fanatics, the great Pontiff, unique, serene and wise, exclaims: But the
legitimate and just love towards one's own country must not close the
eyes to the universality of Christian charity which also considers
others and their prosperity in the pacifying light of love! ...Volumes
could be written on the multiform works of succour of Pius XII... Who
could ever tell what has been done? The rule of severe enclosure falls,
everything and all things are at the service of charity. As the
sufferings grow, so grows the light from the heart of Christ, and from
His Vicar: more vigilant and ready for sacrifice and martyrdom are his
sons and daughters in Christ. Young Levites and white-haired priests,
religious of alt orders, in all lands, dedicated Sisters, all in quest
of good works and ready for sacrifice. There are no barriers, no
distinctions. All sufferers are children of God in the eyes of the
Church, children in Christ, for them and with them all suffer and die.
No hero in history has commanded such an army; none is more militant,
more fought against, none more heroic than that conducted by Pius XII in
the name of Christian charity. An old priest, who could do nothing
further, gathered around him in the church the women and children of the
village (the men had been slaughtered outside the village) so that they
might die together in the presence of the crucifix. His dead body is
thrown upon the altar, where once he celebrated the Holy Sacrifice, and
there he lies, himself sacrificed. An army of priests works in cities
and small towns to provide bread for the persecuted and passports for
the fugitives. Sisters go into unheated canteens to give hospitality to
women refugees. Orphans of all nations and religions are gathered
together and cared for. No economic sacrifice is considered too great to
help the innocent to flee to foreign lands from those who seek their
death. A religious, a most learned man, works incessantly to save Jews,
and himself dies a martyr. Sisters endure hunger to feed the refugees.
Superiors go out in the night to meet strange soldiers who demand
victims. They manage, at the risk of their lives, to convey the
impression that they have none they, who have several in their care. The
attic of one of the great churches in the center of Rome is divided
into many sections, each bearing the name of the saint in whose honor
the altar below is dedicated. The refugees are divided for the
distribution of food into groups according to the names of these saints.
Must not the soul of the saint rejoice in such a tribute? Schools,
administrative offices, churches, convents all have their guests....
At the first hour of his pontificate Pius XII said:
Exactly in times like these, he who remains firm in his faith and
strong in his heart, knows that Christ the King is never so near as in
trial, which is the hour of fidelity. With a heart broken by the
suffering of so many of her children, but with the courage and firmness
that come from faith in the Lord's promises, the Spouse of Christ [the
Church], advances towards the approaching storm. She knows that the
truth she announces, the charity she teaches, and its practice will be
the unique counsellors and collaborators of men of good will in the
reconstruction of a new world, in justice and love, after humanity,
weary of running in the way of error, will have tasted the bitter fruit
of hatred and of violence.
Many are the books by statisticians, generals,
journalists, and many are the memoirs of individuals concerning this
great war. The archives hold quantities of material for future
historians. But who, outside of God in heaven, has gathered into his
heart the sorrows and the groans of all the injured? Like a watchful
sentinel before the sacred inheritance of human pain stands the angelic
Pastor, Pius XII. He has seen the abyss of misfortune towards which
humanity is advancing. He has measured and foretold the greatness of the
tragedy. He has made himself the herald of the serene voice of justice
and the defender of true peace.... I did not hesitate to give a negative
answer to the question whether I was converted in gratitude to Pius XII
for his numberless acts of charity. Nevertheless, I do feel the duty of
rendering homage and of affirming that the charity of the Gospel was
the light that showed the way to my old and weary heart. It is the
charity that so often shines in the history of the Church and which
radiated fully in the actions of the reigning Pontiff.

Testimony such as this can
overcome a lot of the other factors that must be weighed in a true
canonization process. Alas, it is testimony such as this that arouses
the ire of the devil and his minions in the ranks of Talmudic Judaism
and Freemasonry and Bolshevism--and certain precincts of conciliarism
that are in league with these forces--that has made Pope Pius XII a
target of calumny even to this very day.
How many conciliar officials
write or speak about the Faith in the moving terms that Eugenio Maria
Zolli did in his autobiography?
Not many at all.
Certainly not Jorge Mario Bergoglio, who seems to be "uncertain" about the existence of the weight of testimony that
indicates the historical record is clear and unequivocal in support of
Pope Pius XII's work during World War II.
There is no "open" question to
be discussed, certainly nothing to be justified to those who hate the
Faith and who only support "popes" who have by their words and actions
made it appear as though Talmudic Judaism is a perfectly valid religion
in which its adherents are assured of their eternal salvation.
