How Three Protestant Theologians Persuaded German Protestants To Support Hitler And His Nazi Party


"Lest We Forget": Clarion Call To Remember The Jewish Holocaust Lest History Repeats Itself


Subtitle: Pope Pius XII was dubbed "the silent Pope" because he never spoke out against Adolf Hitler and his genocide campaign against the Jews. After the war, numerous European newspapers openly called for War Crimes charges to be levied against the Pope.

You will soon see that Pope Pius XII considered Adolf Hitler to be an important ally and that he aided the German war effort significantly, especially at the end of the war when the Vatican set up the infamous 'Rat Lines' which enabled many Nazi leaders to escape capture by the Allies!

Pope Benedict is going to crown Pius a Saint! An incredible rewriting of history.

The New World Order is coming! Are you ready? Once you understand what this New World Order really is, and how it is being gradually implemented, you will be able to see it progressing in your daily news!!

One of the recurring nightmares of post-World War II Jewish leadership is that, one day, the Vatican will attempt to rewrite modern history sufficiently to where it can make a saint out of Pope Pius XII; this pope was called the "Silent Pope" because he was so quiet while the Nazis were systematically murdering over 6 million Jews! Jewish historians have long said that, had the Pope spoken out against these atrocities while they were occurring, he could have saved several million lives.

His policies and his pronouncements were so pro-Nazi that some historians have called Pius "Hitler's Pope".

Now, this fear is about to be realized, as Pope Benedict XVI has started the process of Canonizing Pope Pius XII.

Let us examine this recent development first, and then we shall learn about Pope Pius XII.

NEWS BRIEF: "Canonization of the silent pontiff? Pope Pius XII ", The Jerusalem Post, December 21, 2009

"Benedict XVI's signature on the document certifying Eugenio Pacelli's ... 'heroic virtues' over the weekend came as a surprise, and not only because the pope's decision to move his World War II-era predecessor, Pius XII, a step nearer sainthood was taken less than a month before the pontiff's planned visit to Rome's main synagogue. The inherent controversy of the move was underlined by the fact that the wartime pope's name appeared discretely on a list of 10 new 'venerables' ... While John Paul's case for sainthood has reached this advanced stage less than five years after his death, Pius XII's cause has taken nearly 45 awkward years."

What is a "venerable" in Vatican lexicon?

"The 'venerable' state is normally followed some time later by beatification, after a team of doctors and theologians have certified a miracle attributed directly to the candidate's intervention, and is subsequently completed by canonization - or sainthood. Each step requires the pope's signature. A commission of theologians and Vatican officials had already voted in favour of proclaiming Pius XII's 'heroic virtues' in May 2007, but Benedict was evidently uncertain, calling for further research in the secret archives. Until the new list appeared this weekend, it was not known that Benedict had been persuaded. "

Why has it taken 45 "awkward years" for the Vatican to begin the process of sainthood for Pope Pius XII?

The reason is simple: Pope Pius XII served during World War II, and was extremely friendly to Adolf Hitler from 1933-1939, when the Nazi dictator was quietly and efficiently consolidating his power. In the DVD, above, "A Lamp In The Dark", editor Chris Pinto briefly addresses the pro-Nazi policy of the Roman Catholic Church during this era. Not only do we see Catholic bishops and priests giving the Nazi salute, but we view a Vatican proclamation which states its satisfaction that, finally, in modern history, a union is being established between a "National Socialist State" (Nazi Germany) and "Catholic Christianity"!

For those who are not aware of the extremely pro-Nazi stance which the Vatican aggressively pursued under the leadership of Pope Pius XII's leadership, these pictures and these quotes must come as a huge surprise. But, this is true history, not the re-written history which shall now pour forth from the Vatican as it attempts to persuade the peoples of the world that Pius was a godly man worthy of being crowned with Sainthood.

Now; let us return to our featured story for more details.

"Jewish leaders in Israel, Rome and Germany have thus far reacted with different degrees of disappointment to the weekend's unexpected news. All agree that it is inappropriate for Jews to interfere in the internal processes of the Catholic Church; all also realize that saints in the Catholic tradition are exemplars for future generations. Rabbi David Rosen, interfaith affairs director for the American Jewish Committee and consultant to Israel's Chief Rabbinate, stated diplomatically but tellingly, for instance, that 'while it is not appropriate for us to tell the Catholic Church whom they may or may not name as saints, if we are partners in interreligious dialogue the Church must take Jewish sensitivities into account. I hope no further steps to accelerate Pius XII's cause will be taken before an objective historical analysis becomes possible by making the secret archives accessible to scholars'."

"Similarly, a statement issued by the Italian Jewish Community noted that if the decision implied 'a definitive and unilateral judgment with regard to Pius XII's record in history, we confirm that our evaluation remains critical'. More bluntly, it added, 'Let us not forget the deportations of the Jews of Italy and in particular, the train with 1,021 who were deported to Auschwitz on October 16, 1943, from the Tiburtina Station of Rome amidst the silence of Pius XII'."

"Most blunt of all was the general secretary of the Central Council of Jews in Germany, Stephan Kramer, who declared he was 'sad and furious' because 'Benedict XVI is rewriting history without having permitted a serious scientific discussion...' "

Cutting Edge believes that these criticisms from Jewish leaders are too mild to really do justice to this critical situation. Historical evidence clearly shows that Pope Pius XII was extremely supportive of Adolf Hitler and his genocidal campaign against the Jew. This feeling of affinity toward Hitler's holocaust is the real reason Pius was the "Silent Pontiff"; he remained silent in the face of the most murderous campaign against a specific people in all of world history. The Pontiff knew what Hitler was doing, took no action, and said nothing, to stop him.

Let us how review this specific history of Pope Pius XII during World War II.

Roman Catholic Support of Hitler

"The Cardinal Faulhaber of Munich who visited Hitler at his mountain retreat in Obersalzburg confessed: 'Without a doubt the chancellor lives in faith in God. He recognizes Christianity as the foundation of Western culture' [Helmreich, p.279]."

"I do not remember even a single occasion when Hitler gave any instructions that ran counter to the true Christian spirit and to humaness. [Wagener, quoted in "Turner, Jr., Henry Ashby, "Hitler-- Memoirs of a Confidant," Yale University Press, 1978, p.147]

"Catholic and Protestant leaders were convinced of Hitler's belief. As an example, the Catholic Cardinal Faulhaber of Munich visited Hitler at his mountain retreat at Obersalzburg in November 1936. Faulhaber observed: 'Without doubt the chancellor lives in faith in God. He recognizes Christianity as the foundation of Western culture.' " [quoted from "The German Churches Under Hitler", p.279]

"Pope Pius XII in 1939 instructed Cardinal Bertram to send a birthday message to Hitler: 'warmest congratulations to the Fuhrer in the name of the bishops and the dioceses in Germany' which was added, 'fervent prayers which the Catholics of Germany are sending to heaven on their altars.' These greetings became a tradition and were sent every April 20th." ["Hitler compared to God/Jesus/Christians", by Jim Walker]

Adolf Hitler was raised Catholic and instructed in a Catholic school run by Jesuits. To his dying day, Hitler considered himself a good Catholic! Listen:

"Adolf Hitler virtually commenced his crusade as a champion of Christianity. While there are those who question the sincerity of his Christian (Roman Catholic) religious convictions, the Roman Catholic Church never saw fit to excommunicate him while giving him enthusiastic support in Germany and in the Vatican, especially after the attack on the Soviet Union in June 1941 ... That the Roman Catholic Church had no hesitancy to back fascism in the name of the crusade against "godless atheistic communism" needs no documentation here ..." {"Catholicism and Fascism", by Robert F. Nordlander, Free Thought Magazine, April, 1990; Emphasis added]

Let us continue examining this Catholic side to Hitler.

"After the death of Pius XI, the electoral procedure to elect another pope had begun. The March 1939 election favored Pacelli and four days later, Pacelli made it clear that he would handle all German affairs personally. He proposed the following affirmation of Hitler:

'To the Illustrious Herr Adolf Hitler, Fuhrer and Chancellor of the German Reich! Here at the beginning of Our Pontificate We wish to assure you that We remain devoted to the spiritual welfare of the German people entrusted to your leadership.... During the many years we spent in Germany, We did all in Our power to establish harmonious relations between Church and State. Now that the responsibilities of Our pastoral function have increased Our opportunities, how much more ardently do We pray to reach that goal. May the prosperity of the German people and their progress in every domain come, with God's help, to fruition!'

"Pacelli became a crowned Pope on March 12, 1939 (Pius XII). The following month on April 20, 1939, at Pacelli's express wish, Archbishop Orsenigo, the nuncio in Berlin, opened a gala reception for Hitler's fiftieth birthday. The birthday greetings thus initiated by Pacelli immediately became a tradition; each April 20 during the few years left to Hitler and his Reich, Cardinal Bertram of Berlin would send "warmest congratulations to the Fuhrer in the name of the bishops and the dioceses in Germany," to which he added 'fervent prayers which the Catholics in Germany are sending to heaven on their altars'." [Cornwell, John, Hitler's Pope: The Secret History of Pius XII, Viking, 1999, p. 209]

Adolf Hitler died a Catholic in good standing within the Catholic Church, was never excommunicated, and was supported by the Vatican even after the war! Rome established and operated an escape route through Italy for former Nazi officials that has become known as the "Vatican Rat Lines" ["Unholy Trinity", by Mark Aarons and John Loftus]

The fact of history is that Adolf Hitler could not have carried out neither his war nor his Holocaust without the active support of Rome. There were individual priests and nuns who did resist Hitler during the war, at great expense and peril to themselves; nevertheless, the official policy of Rome supported Hitler. This is the reality that Jewish leaders and scholars are facing as Pope Benedict XVI initiates the process by which Pius XII will be declared a saint.

But, there is more!

Roman Catholicism would have us believe that the pope is the "good shepherd" here in Christ's stead, thus the title: "Vicar of Christ" and "Shepherd of the Universal Church". I would like to look at just what kind of shepherd Rome has been, and if, indeed, she can make such a claim that she represents Christ. While it is true that Pope John Paul II has apologized for the "silence" of Pope Pius XII during the holocaust, he has also defended Pius XII as a "great pope" and there was talk of beatification of Pius XII until Israel's ambassador to the Vatican urged the Pontiff to wait 50 years before moving ahead with any plan to beatify this man. As always, Rome is two-faced and cannot be trusted. She will do or say whatever she must to accomplish her desired mission. Her mission today is to unite all religions together in her. That's why John Paul II has no problem kissing the Koran, a book that denies Jesus is the Son of God! Neither did the pope have any problem taking the mark of Shiva on his forehead. THIS POPE HAS NO ALLEGIANCE TO CHRIST!!!

Pope John Paul II kissed the Koran, took the "aarti" mark of Shiva on his forehead and met with the Dalai Llama, a man who calls himself the "god-king"; but instead of preaching the gospel to the Dalai Llama, he placed a statue of Buddha on a Catholic altar. What allegiance does he have for Christ? What allegiance does he have for his own Catholic religion?

Yet, Israel spent millions of dollars welcoming this so-called "Shepherd of the Universal Church", a man who heads a system that has persecuted Jews more than Hitler ever dreamed. This situation reminds me of the scripture:

"I am come in my Father's name, and ye receive me not: if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive." (John 5:43)

The Israeli people got a good show for their money! Pope John Paul II, in a touching scene in Jerusalem, stood before the ashes of death camp victims at the Israeli. s Holocaust memorial, and said he is "deeply saddened" by "Christian. s persecution" of Jews. I have to wonder if he is so saddened by the atrocities committed by his own Roman Catholic religion that he would be willing to make recompense as well. In November of 1999, survivors of Serb, Jewish, and Ukrainian background and their relatives, as well as organizations representing over 300,000 Holocaust victims, filed for restitution of the Nazi Croatian Treasury that, according to the US State Department, was "illicitly transferred to the Vatican and other banks after the end of the war." The named defendants include the Vatican Bank, Franciscan Order, and the Croatian Liberation Movement. These defendants combined to conceal assets looted by the Croatian Nazis from concentration camp victims -- Serbs, Jews, Romans --and others between 1941-1945. Sincere repentance would include retribution, that is, if the pope is truly sincere!!!

The most explicit witness against Rome's illegal activities during World War II is the book "Unholy Trinity" by Mark Aarons and John Loftus. We highly recommend this historically, well documented book for anyone interested in how Pope Pius XII and his advisor, Giovanni Montini (Pope Paul VI) directed, through the Vatican Ratlines, the greatest travesty of justice; they aided the following Nazi criminals to escape the judgment of the Allies -- Adolf Eichmann, Franz Strangl (the commandant of Treblinka), Walter Rauff (inventor of the mobile gas chambers), Klaus Barbie (the "Butcher of Lyons").

The Demon Impersonating The Virgin Mary

John Paul II, a strong Mary worshipper, accredits "the lady of Fatima" with saving his life (rather than giving Jesus the glory), is apologizing for the actions of another pope who admired and worshipped "Mary" more than any pope before or after. The papal declarations of Pope Pius XII concerning Mary are more numerous that any one article could expound, and it was this same pope, speaking "ex-cathedra", who declared the doctrine of the "Assumption" (the taking of Mary's body and soul into heaven to set her as "queen of heaven") in 1950, a mandatory belief for all Catholics. The significance of Pope John Paul II's "apology" is most crucial, since he is asking for forgiveness for a man who was led by "Mary" to do the things he did.

Let's look at Pope Pius XII and see exactly for which Pope John Paul II must apologize!

Pope Pius XII occupied the papal throne from 1939-1958. It was during his reign that the world would battle one of the world's most infamous dictators and butchers of all time, Adolph Hitler. It was also during his reign that 6 million Jews would be slaughtered while Pius XII sat idly by in silence. The question that haunts many is "why"? How could the leader of the richest church in the world, a man who claims to represent God on earth, deliberately turn his back on the cries of millions of innocent victims -- men, women, children, babies?

Were his actions any different than those of the popes that preceded him? Roman Catholicism has a history of hate on which she has poured out any in the world who differed from her in religion or opinion. The Inquisition against genuine Christians is probably the most famous example, but Rome has persecuted the Jews from the moment she assumed power. Catholic author, Peter De Rosa, in his book, Vicars of Christ: the Dark Side of the Papacy, states:

"No doctrine was taught more universally, with less qualification  in Catholic terms, more infallibly than that  "Jews are cursed for killing God" , a charge still not officially withdrawn. In the Third and Fourth Councils of the Lateran (1179 and 1215), the church codified all previous enactments against Jews. They had to wear a badge of shame. In England it was saffron, in the presumed shape of the tablets of Moses. In France and Germany it was yellow and round. In Italy, the badge was red hat, until a shortsighted Roman prelate mistook a Jew for a cardinal and the colour was changed to yellow. Jews were forbidden all contact with Christians, barred from administration, deprived of lands, forbidden to own shops, herded into ghettos that were bolted at night. No system of apartheid was more rigorously enforced. For refusing to deny their ancestral faith and convert to Christianity, Jews were hounded from one land to another. One pope gave them a month to quit their homes in Italy. During the Crusades, Jews were slaughtered in their thousands, by the Catholics acting out of 'devotion' to Christ. A Jew who appeared in public on Good Friday was virtually committing suicide. Disastrous theology had prepared the way for Hitler and his 'final solution' ...In spite of Christian cruelty, which to some degree prepared for the Holocaust, some Catholics still say their church has never erred." (p.5-6)

When I read of all the hate Rome has against the Jews for "killing Jesus", I have to wonder if at any time they had read scriptures. Didn't they know that Jesus laid down His life willingly and that no man took it from Him? John 10:18 clearly says, "No man taketh it from me, but I lay it down of myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again."

How could the following words of Paul, so dear to Christians, have eluded the popes?

"For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fulness of the Gentiles be come in. And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob: For this is my covenant unto them, when I shall take away their sins. As concerning the gospel, they are enemies for your sakes: but as touching the election, they are beloved for the fathers' sakes. For the gifts and calling of God are without repentance. For as ye in times past have not believed God, yet have now obtained mercy through their unbelief: Even so have these also now not believed, THAT THROUGH YOUR MERCY THEY ALSO MAY OBTAIN MERCY." (Rom.11:25-31; Emphasis added)

The Vatican has never, ever realized that Israel is still beloved by God and they have been "elected" in eternity past to be His Chosen People. For this reason, God punished Israel severely for nearly 2,000 years, but then brought her back to her ancient land so the End of the Age could begin its inevitable countdown (Please read our treatise on how God truly fulfilled all His vows to Abraham and how He set the stage for the fulfillment of End of the Age Scriptures when He brought Israel back to her land in a "single day", May 14, 1948. This article is NEWS1010, entitled, "God's Modern Day Miracle: Israel A Nation Again".)

How then did Rome obey the word of God and show "mercy"? When an urgent plea was dispatched to the Vatican by an American delegation, acting on behalf of the War Refugee Board, requesting Papal intervention to save the helpless victims (800,000 Jews in Hungary) there was complete silence. By the time the number of Jews decreased to 300,000 (most shipped off to Auschwitz and murdered), another plea was made to the Vatican. Rumors that the Pope might actually help this time and make a radio appeal on behalf of the Jews were quickly abandoned when the Pope said he could not "because if he did so he would in fairness to all have to criticize the Russians" (This, too, was a complete lie, since Roman Catholicism only funded Nazism and Fascism in order to defeat Bolshevism, in order to avenge herself of another concordant gone wrong with Lenin and the loss of 666 million dollars in gold). The failure of Pope Pius XII to speak out against these atrocities cannot be underestimated. The point has been summarized by Guenter Lewy:

"A public denunciation of the mass murders by Pius XII, broadcast widely over the Vatican radio and read from the pulpits by the bishops, would have revealed to Jews and Christians alike what deportation to the East entailed. The Pope would have been believed, whereas the broadcasts of the Allies were often shrugged off as war propaganda" (Hitler's Pope, 286)

This belief is entirely true! The Pope was held in high enough esteem throughout the world by enough people that, if he said the Nazis were systematically annihilating the Jews, he would have been believed. Enormous pressure would have been exerted against the Allied governments to take military action to stop the holocaust. Trains and the tracks on which they carried their Jewish victims could have been bombed. The killing centers themselves, like Auschwitz, could have been bombed and burned to the ground. This Holocaust need not to have occurred to the degree to which it did. Yet, even though Pope Pius XII and the leaders of America and Great Britain, knew all the details of the Nazi genocide, they took no action!

The degree of Illuminati collaboration to annihilate all Jews is one of the saddest, most tragic, tales in all of recorded history. Yet, why should we be surprised? Prophetic Scripture tells us in Revelation 12 and in Matthew 24 that Antichrist is going to try to annihilate all the Jews, and only God protection of the elect will keep Israel from being totally wiped out. Since every one of the Allied leaders is Illuminati, and since Adolf Hitler was Illuminati, we can understand how they shared the same kind of hatred toward the Jew that Antichrist is foretold to possess.

The Jews in Hungary would just have to become a casualty of war, and never see the "mercy" that the word of God said Christians should have towards them. How deceitful it is that popes claim to represent true Christianity.

Jesus, the Good Shepherd that laid down His life for His sheep out of love, was rejected by Israel. Zechariah prophesied the kind of shepherd Israel would accept after rejecting the true Shepherd.

"And the LORD said unto me, Take unto thee yet the instruments of a foolish shepherd. For, lo, I will raise up a shepherd in the land, which shall not visit those that be cut off, neither shall seek the young one, nor heal that that is broken, nor feed that that standeth still: but he shall eat the flesh of the fat, and tear their claws in pieces. Woe to the idol shepherd that leaveth the flock! the sword shall be upon his arm, and upon his right eye: his arm shall be clean dried up, and his right eye shall be utterly darkened." (Zec.11:15-17)

Israel cried out and said, "Our bones are dried, and our hope is lost: we are cut off for our parts". (Eze.37:11) Pope Pius XII, a self-proclaimed "universal shepherd", refused to visit those that were "cut off" (the Jew), exactly as Zechariah had prophesied. He is, without a doubt, the "idol shepherd that leaveth the flock".

Not only did Pope Pius XII turn a deaf ear to the cries of millions, Roman Catholicism funded Nazism and its Fascist system. The underlying motive for her actions was love of money and power, and her desire to preserve herself. Rome was watching out for her own interests.

"One of the benefits of the [1933] concordat [with Hitler] was the hundreds of millions of dollars that would flow to the Roman Catholic Church through the kirchensteuer (church tax) throughout the entire war. In return, Pius XII would never excommunicate Hitler from the Catholic Church nor would he raise his voice to protest the slaughter of 6 million Jews" ("A Woman Rides the Beast", Dave Hunt, 220-221).

Rightly does the word of God speak of the love of money:

"For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows." (1Tim.6:10)

Of course, Rome claims her silence was her wisdom, for in so doing, she was able to at least protect the Catholic people from suffering the same fate as the Jew, and after all, she was responsible for saving thousands of Jews who were married to Catholics. I find it interesting and hypocritical how a system that claims the gates of hell will never prevail against them would go in league with the satanic Nazi government in order to preserve herself. It's obvious she did not really believe the scripture she wrested to her own destruction. Why be a coward if you really believe that Jesus will not let the gates of the enemy prevail against you? Rome would have faired better to claim it was greed and revenge that motivated her actions, for this kind of sin is prevalent where money and power exists. But to claim that she had to turn a deaf ear to the outpouring of hearts begging for aid and mercy in order to protect her own existence (and conceal her interaction with those very groups that were responsible for the Jewish bloodbath), just goes to show what a shallow, Godless money-making machine she really is. Isaiah well describes these corrupt Catholic shepherds:

"His watchmen are blind: they are all ignorant, they are all dumb dogs, they cannot bark; sleeping, lying down, loving to slumber. Yea, they are greedy dogs which can never have enough, and they are shepherds that cannot understand: they all look to their own way, every one for his gain, from his quarter." (Isa.56:10-11)

Rome had no faith that Jesus would, indeed, save her while she remained faithful to preach truth. But since Rome is devoid of the truth, she had no alternative but to resort to her own devices, as she has done for centuries. It would be fair to say that Pope Pius XII (Eugenio Pacelli), was only following the same racist anti-Semitism that Roman Catholicism had always harbored toward the Jews, the same kind of hatred that paved the way for the Nazi's final solution. Hitler was educated in a Catholic school, and remained nominal Catholic all his life.

What kind of a man would follow that kind of historical hateful bigotry? A man who loved and worshipped the demon who has always impersonated the Virgin Mary.

Pacelli, from his earliest childhood, was led by his mother and father in the worship of Mary.

"Virginia Pacelli led her children several times a day to pray before a shrine to the Virgin in their apartment, and the whole family said the Rosary each evening before supper...On his [Eugenio] way home from school he regularly visited the picture of the Virgin, known as Madonna della Strada, close to the tomb of Ignatius Loyola in the Gesu church. Here sometimes twice daily, he poured out his heart to the Madonna, telling her everything" ("Hitler's Pope", John Cornwell, 17-18).

Yet for all this worship, did "Mary" produce a peace and joy in this youth, the same peace that the Lord promises those who follow Him? The answer is "no". Pacelli, writing an essay in the third person at age fifteen, described himself as "blind with vain and erroneous ideas and doubts". He went on to ask, "who will give him wings" to "rise from this miserable earth to the highest sphere and tear apart this evil veil that surrounds him always and everywhere?" In concluding his self portrait, he describes himself as "tearing at his hair" and wishing he had "never been born" (Ibid. 19) This "evil veil" that surrounded Pacelli and "blinded" him, was none other than the demonic spirit of "Mary" he worshipped all his days.

2 Corinthians 4:4 describes this demonic spirit:

"In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them."

But, incredibly, there is more to the hatred of the Jew which beat in the heart of Pope Pius XII. He was a fervent follower of the Satanic secret society, the Jesuits! At the age of 18, Pacelli was introduced into the Spiritual Exercises of Ignatius Loyola. Loyola designed these "exercises" as a textbook for all Jesuits. In the book, Secret History of the Jesuits, by Edmund Paris, we get a better understanding of just what type of influence these "exercises" have:

"Ignatius understood more clearly than any other leader of men who preceded him that the best way to raise a man to a certain ideal is to become master of his imagination. We  imbue into him spiritual forces which he would find very difficult to eliminate later. . Forces more lasting than all the best principles and doctrines; these forces can come up again to the surface, sometimes after years of not even mentioning them, and become imperative that the will finds itself unable to oppose any obstacle, and has to follow their irresistible impulse" (21; Emphasis added).

What are these "spiritual forces" of which they are speaking? The Holy Spirit? Would you ever find occasion to "eliminate" Him? What force is more lasting than God. s doctrines if God is the Word (Jn.1:1)? After lying dormant for years (does God lay dormant in a true Christian?) this force can eventually break down the individual. s will and coerce him to do something he wouldn't not otherwise do.

THIS IS NOT THE HOLY SPIRIT!!!! This is demonism, purely and simply.

Ignatius Loyola was so confident in these "Exercises", that he boasted he only needed thirty days to "subdue" a soul:

"Imposing on his disciples actions which, to him, were spontaneous, he needed just thirty days to break, with this method, the will and reasoning, in the manner in which a rider breaks his horse. He only needed thirty days . triginta dies. , to subdue a soul. Note that Jesuitism expanded together with the modern inquisition: while the inquisition dislocated the body, the spiritual Exercises broke up the thoughts under Loyola. s machine" (Ibid. 22).

What were these "Exercises" that Loyola used to control his young disciples and where did he get them?

"At the front. it is characteristic of this Order. we find the Virgin Mary. . Loyola had made the Virgin the most important thing in his life. The Worship of Mary was the base of his religious devotions and was handed down by him to his Order. This worship developed so much that it was often said, and with good reason, that it was the Jesuits. real religion. ...Loyola himself was convinced that he Virgin had inspired him when he had drawn up his . Exercises. " ("Secret History of the Jesuits", 599-60).

Just a short study of the men who partook of these "Exercises" proves that indeed, the spirit they call "the Virgin" had inspired them. The visions and teachings of those indoctrinated into these spiritual exercises degenerated into licentious and sensual manifestations. Pacelli was guided through the "Spiritual Exercises" on more than one occasion, and it was after taking part in the Jesuit training that Pacelli told his parents he wanted to become a priest. At age 23, he was ordained and he said his first Mass at the "altar of the Virgin in the basilica of Santa Maria Maggiore". His obsessive worship of Mary became the focal point of his pontificate.

"Central to Pacelli. s personal everyday spirituality was his devotion to the Virgin Mary. With the advent of war, he turned in particular to the cult of the Our Lady of Fatima, the credence given to a series of Marian apparitions to three children in Portugal during the First World War, along with associated Marian messages and secrets. A central feature of the messages focused on the requirement that the faithful should pray to Mary in order to avoid world conflict, the spread of Communism, and ultimately the destruction of the world in a holocaust of divine punishment. Pius XI had endorsed the visions of Fatima, and the dictators of Portugal and Spain, Salazar and Franco, had celebrated the cult as a rally-rousing emblem of Fascistic solidarity. Pacelli not only gave it credence (as would John Paul II) but also saw a personal, a mystical link in the circumstance that he had been raised to the episcopate on May 13, 1917, the date of the first apparition, and subsequently the cult's feast day" ( Hitler's Pope, 272).

As we can see, Mary was the leading spirit behind Pope Pius XII. John Cornwell, in his book Hitler's Pope, made an interesting point:

"The significance of the Fatima cult in Pacelli's thinking is its flavor of gnosticism--the notion of dual realms of darkness and light beyond the mere "veil of appearances," where reside the Godhead, the Virgin Mary, Michael, and all the angels and the saints, opposed by the powers of the Prince of Darkness and his fallen angels, "who wander through the world for the ruin of souls," as Pope Leo XIII had put it in a prayer to be said at the end of every Mass. What happens in this world of ours, according to such a perspective, depends on Mary's intercession with her Son to so curb the power of Satan that war and discord will be vanquished. The conditions of this virtual appeasement operate on the basis of Marian revelations sanctioned as authentic by the Pope, whose power is thus parallel to Mary's. Ever since Pius IX defined, without mention of Episcopal approbation, the dogma of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary in I854, there had been a close link in the minds of modern Popes between Mary and papal authority. In short, the unfolding of human history depends not on communitarian and societal action and responsibility but upon miraculous interventions mediated by Mary and endorsed by the papacy" (273).

Pope Pius XII waited on the intervention of Mary while he sat back in silence at the destruction of 6 million Jews. His teachings during his pontificate reflect the hope that he clung to was Mary. In a letter to Cardinal Maglione, April 20, 1939, (the first year of Pacelli's pontifical reign) we read:

"May fathers and mothers, with pious custom, accompany their children, even to the tiniest ones, every day to their shrines of the Blessed Virgin, presenting them to her along with flowers from their gardens and fields and together with their prayers and those of their children. His mother took [Pacelli everyday to the shrine] And how could our heavenly Mother fail to heed so many suppliant voices imploring peace for citizens, for peoples, for nations? How could she fail to heed them if with the prayers of the angels of heaven there should be added those of children whom one may call angels of this earth? Certainly the Virgin Mother of God, moved by such prayers, will offer her aid and her intercession in this moment of universal trepidation, and by inviting the favor of her divine Son, offended by so many sins, will obtain from Him liberation from present anxieties, the peace of hearts and fraternal concord among peoples" (Papal Teachings: Our Lady, Selected and Arranged by The Benedictine Monks of Solesmes, 235).

When Pope Pius consecrated the world to the "Immaculate Heart of Mary" on the 25th anniversary of Fatima, Oct. 31, 1942, he prayed this prayer, showing in whom he placed his faith:

"...Queen of the most holy Rosary, Help of Christians, Refuge of Mankind, triumph in all battles for God! We, your suppliants, prostrate ourselves at your throne, confident that we shall obtain mercy and receive grace, the needed assistance and protection, during the calamities of these days, not indeed by our own merits, of which we presume nothing, but solely through the immense goodness of your maternal heart" (Papal Teachings: Our Lady, Selected and Arranged by The Benedictine Monks of Solesmes, 250).

It is evident that Pope Pius XII is mocking Hebrews 4:15-16 which clearly shows us whose throne we are to approach in the hour of our need:

"For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin. Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need."

The dominant hope of Pope Pius XII was not Jesus, but Mary. He looked to her for peace and safety. He pleaded with her to intercede in world events. My friend, Mary is not omnipresent, omnipotent nor omniscient. She is not the mediatrix of all graces, for we only have one Mediator...and that is Jesus Christ, as 1 Timothy.2:5 says, "For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus" (Compare Heb.8:6; 9:15; 12:24), and by "one Spirit" we have "access" to this grace.

"Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ: By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God." (Rom.5:1-2)

"For through him we both have access by one Spirit unto the Father." (Eph.2:18)

"In whom we have boldness and access with confidence by the faith of him." (Eph.3:12)

Pope Pius XII did not obey the scriptures, but followed a demon instead...a demon that demanded more and more honor for herself, as she brought the man who would obey, more and more dishonor. Now, years later, a man led by that same demonic spirit is "apologizing" for his predecessor. s actions. One would have to conclude that the future pope will have to apologize for the mistakes this pope is making right now. When Pope John Paul II took the mark of Shiva on his forehead, he was leading the way for others to take the mark of the beast on their foreheads. Should all Catholics now kiss the Koran and honor it as their "Universal Shepherd" did?

When Jesus comes and takes His church out of this world, and the Catholic people are left behind, will their pope apologize? What good would it do? Will he then admit that all their man-made doctrines were nothing but lies forged to keep men spiritual and financial prisoners to them? Will the Catholic then realize they have followed the wrong shepherd?... a foolish shepherd?& . the idol shepherd?

If you are Catholic and have been trusting in Mary and the pope, I invite you to come to the true Shepherd who

"...did no sin, neither was guile found in his mouth...Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed. For ye were as sheep going astray; but are now returned unto the Shepherd and Bishop of your souls." (1 Pet.2:22-25

"And when the chief Shepherd shall appear, ye shall receive a crown of glory that fadeth not away." (1 Pet.5:4)

These tragic events, and the ascension of the Roman Pontiff to the world stage, is strong proof that the prophesied end of all things is at hand. Are you spiritually ready? Is your family? Are you adequately protecting your loved ones? This is the reason for this ministry, to enable you to first understand the peril facing you, and then help you develop strategies to warn and protect your loved ones. Once you have been thoroughly trained, you can also use your knowledge as a means to open the door of discussion with an unsaved person. I have been able to use it many times, and have seen people come to Jesus Christ as a result. These perilous times are also a time when we can reach many souls for Jesus Christ, making an eternal difference.

If you have accepted Jesus Christ as your personal Savior, but have been very lukewarm in your spiritual walk with Him, you need to immediately ask Him for forgiveness and for renewal. He will instantly forgive you, and fill your heart with the joy of the Holy Spirit. Then, you need to begin a daily walk of prayer and personal Bible Study.

If you have never accepted Jesus Christ as Savior, but have come to realize His reality and the approaching End of the Age, and want to accept His FREE Gift of Eternal Life, you can also do so now, in the privacy of your home. Once you accept Him as Savior, you are spiritually Born Again, and are as assured of Heaven as if you were already there. Then, you can rest assured that the Kingdom of Antichrist will not touch you spiritually.

If you would like to become Born Again, turn to our Salvation Page now.

We hope you have been blessed by this ministry, which seeks to educate and warn people, so that they can see the coming New World Order -- Kingdom of Antichrist -- in their daily news.

Finally, we would love to hear from you.

God bless you.
