A Priest’s Moral Analysis of the COVID “Vaccines”

The following was shared with me by a priest who I trust.

Moral Analysis of Vaccines

JMJ

On the blatant immorality of the currently employed COVID vaccines 

What follows are a series of briefly outlined moral arguments. Each argument stands alone, and in itself is sufficient to demonstrate the immorality of receiving the currently employed “vaccines”.

(For the sake of brevity, dozens of supporting links have been omitted; I do not advocate for all the content on the websites linked to below.) 

1)  Using human subjects as lab rats.

“doctors may not use the bodies of the sick as a corpus vile*  for experimenting with uncertain remedies when surer remedies can be usedWhen there are no sure remedies, a doctor may test the remedial nature of newly discovered drugs, if there is no risk to the patient.” Moral and Pastoral Theology Vol II, Henry Davis, 1949, 6th Ed.,  page 155, emphasis mine.

*“Something felt to be of so little value that it may be experimented with or upon without concern for loss or damage.” Merriam Webster. (In popular terms: guinea pig; lab rat.)

As to first highlighted statement: surer remedies.  There are surer remedies, for example ivermectin, or the antimalarials with zinc.

Furthermore, nothing could be more uncertain than using mRNA type “vaccines”, “treatments” which are completely novel, never before seen and not even tested in animals.  

[Parenthetical remarks.  With regard to the value of these vaccines as “remedies”, these articles are well worth meditating on.

WHO’s chief scientist, Dr. Soumya Swaminathan, noted…”At the moment I don’t believe we have the evidence of any of the vaccines to be confident that it’s going to prevent people from actually getting the infection and therefore being able to pass it on,”

Dr. Michael Yeadon, Pfizer’s former Vice President and Chief Scientist for Allergy & Respiratory wrote:  There is absolutely no need for vaccines to extinguish the pandemic. I’ve never heard such nonsense talked about vaccines. You do not vaccinate people who aren’t at risk from a disease. You also don’t set about planning to vaccinate millions of fit and healthy people with a vaccine that hasn’t been extensively tested on human subjects.

Given the above, what is the purpose of these “vaccines” then? 

A suggestive statement: in February 2010, Bill Gates stated: “The world today has 6.8 billion people. That’s heading up to about nine billion. Now if we do a really great job on new vaccines, health care, reproductive health services, we could lower that by perhaps 10 or 15 percent.” 

One possibility to consider: (from an interview with Robert F Kennedy Jr.)

According to the World Health Organization, there are 70 vaccines in development — three of which are in clinical trials. What do you think about the push for the rapid development of a COVID-19 vaccine? Is it okay to skip animal trials and go straight to human trials? Can those human volunteers truly have informed consent?

KENNEDY: No. What we know about coronavirus from 30 years of experience is that a coronavirus vaccine has a unique peculiarity, which is any attempted making of the vaccine has resulted in the creation of a class of antibodies that actually make vaccinated people sicker when they ultimately suffer exposure to the wild virus. Following the SARS epidemic that began in 2002, China launched a concerted effort to develop a coronavirus vaccine. They succeeded in developing 30 promising models, and they chose the four “best in class” to fabricate and then test on ferrets, the animal most analogous to human beings when it comes to upper respiratory infections.

The ferrets all developed admirable, robust, and durable antibody responses, and the scientists believed they had hit the jackpot. But then, when the animals suffered exposure to the wild virus, something frightening happened. The vaccinated animals sickened and died with body-wide inflammation. The vaccine had created a condition known as paradoxical inherent immune response, which amplified the injury caused by the illness rather than preventing it.

The scientists at that time recalled a similar occurrence from the 1960s where the NIH had conducted studies on a vaccine for RSV, an upper respiratory illness very similar to coronavirus. The 35 children in that study had developed a strong antibody response but had become terribly ill upon exposure to wild RSV. Two of the children died. Remembering this incident, the scientists in 2012 abandoned their efforts to create that vaccine. And that is why today you are hearing dire warnings from unexpected quarters — Paul Offit, Peter Hotez, Ian Lipkin, and even Anthony Fauci himself — who have all warned that a coronavirus vaccine may end up making people sicker from coronavirus rather than avoiding the disease.

Another possibility to consider:

“in 2015, Vatican Radio charged that the UN organizations WHO and UNICEF were again executing vast international programs of depopulating the earth by using vaccines to surreptitiously sterilize women in Third World countries, this time in Kenya. It stated that “Catholic Bishops in Kenya have been opposed to the nationwide Tetanus Vaccination Campaign targeting 2.3 million Kenyan women and girls of reproductive age between 15-49 years, terming the campaign a secret government plan to sterilize women and control population growth”” “the WHO was for decades receiving hundreds of millions of dollars in funding for research and testing, to produce an antifertility vaccine that would make a woman’s immune system attack and destroy her own babies in the womb, a vaccine they would surreptitiously combine with a tetanus vaccination without informing the victims… The WHO inoculated more than 130 million women in 52 countries with this vaccine, permanently sterilizing some very large percentage of them without their knowledge or consent.” 

Close of parenthetical remarks.]

(Show Notes for the Interview with the Former Pfizer VP)

As to second highlighted statement: no risk to patient.  That is manifestly not the case here.  As of “Feb. 12, 15,923 adverse reactions to COVID “vaccines”, including 929 deaths, have been reported to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) since Dec. 14, 2020.”   The actual numbers of deaths and injuries are likely much much higher, since  “Historically, however, fewer than 1% of adverse events have ever been reported to VAERS”. (In other words, to get a more probable assessment of the actual numbers, multiply the data above by 100.)

As to the complete statement itself: doctors may not use human beings as experimental lab rats.  No sane human being, and certainly no Catholic, can argue this point, as is clear from the Catechism of the Catholic Church paragraph 2295:  

Research or experimentation on the human being cannot legitimate acts that are in themselves contrary to the dignity of persons and to the moral law. The subjects’ potential consent does not justify such acts. Experimentation on human beings is not morally legitimate if it exposes the subject’s life or physical and psychological integrity to disproportionate or avoidable risks. Experimentation on human beings does not conform to the dignity of the person if it takes place without the informed consent of the subject or those who legitimately speak for him.  CCC 2295

2) Mutilation.

“The body may not be mutilated unless mutilation is the only available means of saving the rest of the body, i.e., its life or health. Since man may not take away his life, so neither may he mutilate his body, for the members of his body are not his to dispose of, but are to be used in their integrity to help him to fulfill the divine purpose and achieve his own perfection and last end. But since life is better than a member of the body, the latter may be sacrificed, if necessary, to save the whole body.”  Ibid., page 156, emphasis mine.

Before addressing the highlighted passages, let’s start with the obvious question: how does the question of mutilation enter into a moral analysis of these “vaccines”?

It is not even possible to think of a more serious mutilation than to permanently and irreversibly change one’s genome.  It makes what Bruce Jenner has done look trivial (and that certainly is not.)  And yet it seems very likely that that is exactly what these “vaccines” do.  

To cite only one authority: Dr. Luc Montagnier (2008 Nobel Prize for discovery of HIV) who disputes “the label of “vaccine,” arguing that these products represent a new form of gene therapy” and who “opposes the use of mRNA vaccines in humans, stated in an interview…  “The human genome contains 7% to 9% of endogenous retrovirus sequences. Some of these sequences code for reverse transcription of RNA into DNA. Therefore, it is possible that the spike protein mRNA of the vaccine could be absorbed by human cells, reverse transcribed, and integrated as a human gene in these cells… (in other words, the recipient of this “vaccine” would become a genetically modified organismEven if animal testing showed protection, nobody could predict long-term pathologic effects in a human population and the precautionary principle should apply.” (emphasis mine.)

As to the first highlighted statement: the body may not be mutilated unless mutilation is the only available means of saving the rest of the body, i.e., its life or health

As already pointed out above, this is simply not the case.

As to the second highlighted statement: mutilation is forbidden, excepting in the cases of sacrificing a part to save the whole, such as removing a gangrenous limb, which is manifestly not the case here.

3) Aborted Fetal Cells

Aborted fetal cell lines are being used for the making and/or testing of the “vaccines”.   In order to really appreciate the gravity of the aborted fetal cells, this video, and contents of this article, are absolutely essential to digest:

To produce the cell line used in the development Merck and Pfizer “vaccines”, scores of babies (probably hundreds) were delivered alive by the abortionist(s), via c-section, and then handed over to the “scientist” who immediately stretched out the baby and gutted him out – alive, kicking and struggling – in order to get the desired tissues.  

Clearly satanic. 

This same cell line was not only used in the development of these “vaccines” but – as pointed out in the above video and article – is apparently being used in the production phase of each new batch, for “quality-control” purposes.

Apparently this is not a very serious concern for many of our religious leaders.  Abbey Johnson has called them out on that, and (in a sad commentary on our times) she makes far more sense than almost any of our moral theologians or religious leaders:

The bottom line is that either we are for abortion or against it. Either we are for using fetal cells derived from abortions or we are against it. Either we are for using “vaccines” manufactured using fetal cells or we are against it.  Is it really morally acceptable to possibly extend our lives (a dubious claim at best) by means which employ the sacrifice of babies?  

And in this regard, we have been blessed by some very clear teaching from Cardinal Janis Pujats, Archbishop Tomash Peta, Archbishop Jan Pawel Lenga, Bishop Joseph E. Strickland, and Bishop Athanasius Schneider in their brilliant letter On the moral illicitness of the use of vaccines made from cells derived from aborted human fetuses.

The whole letter deserves prayerful consideration; here are a few important excerpts:

In the case of vaccines made from the cell lines of aborted human fetuses, we see a clear contradiction between the Catholic doctrine to categorically, and beyond the shadow of any doubt, reject abortion in all cases as a grave moral evil that cries out to heaven for vengeance (see Catechism of the Catholic Church n. 2268, n. 2270), and the practice of regarding vaccines derived from aborted fetal cell lines as morally acceptable in exceptional cases of “urgent need” — on the grounds of remote, passive, material cooperation. To argue that such vaccines can be morally licit if there is no alternative is in itself contradictory and cannot be acceptable for Catholics. 

…The Lord said that in the end times even the elect will be seduced (cf. Mk. 13:22). Today, the entire Church and all Catholic faithful must urgently seek to be strengthened in the doctrine and practice of the faith. In confronting the evil of abortion, more than ever Catholics must “abstain from all appearance of evil” (1 Thess. 5:22). Bodily health is not an absolute value. Obedience to the law of God and the eternal salvation of the souls must be given primacy. Vaccines derived from the cells of cruelly murdered unborn children are clearly apocalyptic in character and may possibly foreshadow the mark of the beast (see Rev. 13:16). 

4) A very important but somehow overlooked spiritual consideration

What we are seeing here, for those who have eyes to see, is actually nothing new.  Modern technology is being employed in the service of an ancient technique.  A brief review of a number of historical precedents will make the application obvious.

Eusebius: (the emperor Galerius Maximinus ordered)… that all men, women, and children, even infants at the breast, should sacrifice and offer oblations (to the idols); and that… they should be made to taste the execrable offerings; and that the things for sale in the market should be polluted with libations from the sacrifices; and that guards should be stationed before the baths in order to defile with the abominable sacrifices those who went to wash in them. (Ecclesiastical History, Book 8, Chapter 9), cited in Malvenda

From a sermon by Nectarius, the Bishop of Constantinople:  Julian the Apostate had all the food put up for sale in the markets in Constantinople secretly corrupted by sprinkling with blood,  so that in this way it might be polluted.  St Theodore, who had been warned by a Divine revelation, cautioned the Christians to carefully abstain from all this, and to use wheat cooked in oil as their food.  (Malvenda, De Antichristo, Book 9, chapter 31)

Theodoret: (Julian the Apostate) cast things offered to idols into the fountains of the city of Antioch, and into those of Daphne, so that no one could drink of the streams without partaking of the hateful sacrifices. He defiled in the same way everything that was sold in the marketplace, for he had water which had been offered to idols sprinkled on the bread, meat, fruit, herbs, and all the other articles of food. (Ecclesiastical History, Book 3, Chapter 15), cited in Malvenda*

The pagan rulers, lusting to bring the masses into fellowship with them and with their diabolical sacrifices, and yet recognizing that many Christians would not willingly partake of items that had been offered to pagan deities, attempted to force everyone to enter into communion with their evil sacrifices and the spirits behind them by contaminating everything possible: foods, drinks, herbs (medicines), etc.   

Today, we are seeing similar attempts, cloaked under modern technology.  Because these “vaccines” have been tainted in a fashion analogous to that seen above, it would be far more accurate, spiritually speaking, to refer to them as potions or malefices.  

Many of those who are taking these “vaccines”/potions/malefices are quite aware that these have been prepared using tissue derived from abortion.  Insofar as they have not been actually held down and forcibly injected, it is very difficult to see how such individuals are not positively willing, in some way, to employ the satanic sacrifice of babies to make their own life “safer” or “easier”, (any and all claims to being “pro-life” notwithstanding.)  

Why is this significant?  Because the more willing the recipient, the more open he is to receive the spiritual effects. 

The spiritual reality is that by being injected with one of these “vaccines”/potions/malefices, the recipient receives an Unholy communion – via a syringe – with the human sacrifices used in their preparation.  Spiritually speaking, this is simply a slightly camouflaged diabolic inversion of the way that a Catholic enters into Communion with Our Lord’s Sacrifice on the Cross when he receives the Eucharist worthily: every time that a properly disposed Catholic receives Holy Communion,  he comes into union with the crucified and resurrected Savior – and receives the graces and gifts of that union – the spiritual fruits of Our Lord’s death upon the Cross: Peace and Life, virtues and strength.

But every time someone receives one of these Merck or Pfizer “vaccines”, he comes into union with the violent and horrific sacrifices of hundreds of babies who – at the request of at least one of his parents – were delivered alive, then carefully stretched out, gutted out and sliced apart, by the satanic priest/scientist – his tender little life savagely snuffed out while suffering the most excruciating pain.

And by receiving that injection, he also receives the spiritual fruits of those sacrifices to the demon: as time goes on, these will become more apparent, but very likely include the spirits of inchoate rage, pain and death. 

And, as we’ve seen, the more willing the recipient of these potions, the more open he is to receive their spiritual effects. 

Fundamentally, this is just a question of communion: who, exactly, do you want to be in Communion with?

Christ?

Or satan?

It’s literally that simple. 

* These historical examples (and more) which prefigure our current dilemma can all be found in Fr Tomas Malvenda OP’s monumental 1604 work De Antichristo (On the Antichrist), Book 9, chapter 31.  It is worth pondering that these examples are found in his commentary on Apocalypse 13:17.

Freemasonry, Communism, Homosexuality, The Infiltration of the Church & the Holy Face

On August 30, 1568, Pope St. Pius V issued the bull Horrendum Illud scelus.  The Holy Father starts it off with the following: That horrible crime, by which corrupt and obscene cities were destroyed by fire through divine condemnation, causes us most bitter sorrow and shocks our mind, impelling us to repress such a crime with the greatest possible zeal.

“Our ultimate aim is that of Voltaire and of the French Revolution – the final destruction of Catholicism, and even of the Christian idea.” ~ The Permanent Instruction of the Alta Vendita

Those who drew up the document knew that they would not see its fulfillment. They were inaugurating a work that would be carried on by succeeding generations of the initiated. The Permanent Instruction says, “In our ranks the soldier dies and the struggle goes on.” In time, this mind-set would be so pervasive that priests would be ordained, bishops would be consecrated, and cardinals would be nominated whose thinking was in step with the modern thought rooted in the “Principles of 1789” (pluralism, equality of religions, separation of Church and State, etc.)

The Instruction called for the dissemination of liberal ideas and axioms throughout society and within the institutions of the Catholic Church so that laity, seminarians, clerics and prelates would, over the years, gradually be imbued with progressive principles. Eventually, a Pope would be elected from these ranks who would lead the Church on the path of “enlightenment and renewal”. It must be stressed that it was not their aim to place a Freemason on the Chair of Peter. Their goal was to effect an environment that would eventually produce a Pope and a hierarchy won over to the ideas of liberal Catholicism, all the while believing themselves to be faithful Catholics.

Both Pope Pius IX and Pope Leo XIII asked that the Permanent Instruction be published and that there would be three unmistakable means of recognizing it:

1) It would produce an upheaval of such magnitude that the entire world would realize that the Catholic Church had undergone a major revolution in line with modern ideas. It would be clear to all that an “updating” had taken place.

2) A new theology would be introduced that would be in contradiction to previous teachings.

3) The Freemasons themselves would voice their cockle-doodle of triumph believing that the Catholic Church had finally “seen the light” on such points as pluralism, the secular state, equality of religions, and whatever other compromises had been achieved.

These Catholic leaders, then, would no longer oppose the modern ideas of the revolution (as had been the consistent practice of the Popes from1789 until 1958 who condemned these liberal principles) but would amalgamate them into the Church. The end result would be a Catholic clergy and laity marching under the banner of the enlightenment all the while thinking they are marching under the banner of the Apostolic keys.

Part of the document reads as follows:

“The Pope, whoever he is, will never come to the secret societies; it is up to the secret societies to take the first step toward the Church, with the aim of conquering both of them.

“The task that we are going to undertake is not the work of a day, or of a month, or of a year; it may last several years, perhaps a century; but in our ranks the soldier dies and the struggle goes on.

“We do not intend to win the Popes to our cause, to make them neophytes of our principles, propagators of our ideas. That would be a ridiculous dream; and if events turn out in some way, if Cardinals or prelates, for example, of their own free will or by surprise, should enter into a part of our secrets, this is not at all an incentive for desiring their elevation to the See of Peter. That elevation would ruin us. Ambition alone would have led them to apostasy, the requirements of power would force them to sacrifice us. What we must ask for, what we should look for and wait for, as the Jews wait for the Messiah, is a Pope according to our needs…

“With that we shall march more securely towards the assault on the Church than with the pamphlets of our brethren in France and even the gold of England. Do you want to know the reason for this? It is that with this, in order to shatter the high rock on which God has built His Church, we no longer need Hannibalian vinegar, or need gunpowder, or even need our arms. We have the little finger of the successor of Peter engaged in the ploy, and this little finger is as good, for this crusade, as all the Urban II’s and all the Saint Bernard’s in Christendom.

“We have no doubt that we will arrive at this supreme end of our efforts. But when? But how? The unknown is not yet revealed. Nevertheless, as nothing should turn us aside from the plan drawn up, and on the contrary everything should tend to this, as if as early as tomorrow success were going to crown the work that is barely sketched, we wish, in this instruction, which will remain secret for the mere initiates, to give the officials in the charge of the supreme Vente some advice that they should instill in all the brethren, in the form of instruction or of a memorandum …

“Now then, to assure ourselves a Pope of the required dimensions, it is a question first of shaping him … for this Pope, a generation worthy of the reign we are dreaming of. Leave old people and those of a mature age aside; go to the youth, and if itis possible, even to the children … You will contrive for yourselves, at little cost, a reputation as good Catholics and pure patriots.

“This reputation will put access to our doctrines into the midst of the young clergy, as well as deeply into the monasteries. In a few years, by the force of things, this young clergy will have overrun all the functions; they will form the sovereign’s council, they will be called to choose a Pontiff who should reign. And this Pontiff, like most of his contemporaries, will be necessarily more or less imbued with the Italian and humanitarian principles that we are going to begin to put into circulation. It is a small grain of black mustard that we are entrusting to the ground; but the sunshine of justice will develop it up to the highest power, and you will see one day what a rich harvest this small seed will produce.

“In the path that we are laying out for our brethren, there are found great obstacles to conquer, difficulties of more than one kind to master. They will triumph over them by experience and by clear sightedness; but the goal is so splendid that it is important to put all the sails to the wind in order to reach it. You want to revolutionize Italy, look for the Pope whose portrait we have just drawn. You wish to establish the reign of the chosen ones on the throne of the prostitute of Babylon, let the Clergy march under your standard, always believing that they are marching under the banner of the apostolic keys. You intend to make the last vestige of tyrants and the oppressors disappear; lay your snares like Simon Bar-Jona; lay them in the sacristies, the seminaries, and the monasteries rather than at the bottom of the sea: and if you do not hurry, we promise you a catch more miraculous than his. The fisher of fish became the fisher of men; you will bring friends around the apostolic Chair. You will have preached a revolution in tiara and in cope, marching with the cross and the banner, a revolution that will need to be only a little bit urged on to set fire to the four corners of the world.” (1)

In the 19th Century, Father Frederick Faber, said in a remarkable sermon preached at Pentecost, 1861 in the London Oratory:

 

 

“We must remember that if all the manifestly good men were on one side and all the manifestly bad men were on the other, there would be no danger of anyone, least of all the elect, being deceived by lying wonders. It is the good men, once good, we must hope good still, who are to do the work of anti-christ and so sadly to crucify the Lord afresh … Bear in mind this feature of the last days, that this deceitfulness arises from good men being on the wrong side.”

Bella V. Dodd, a.k.a. Maria Asunta Isabella Visono [Baptized Maria Asunta Isabella in Picerno, Italy in October, 1904 – d. April, 1969], who was born to Rocco Visono and Teresa Marsica in Picerno, Italy, was a leader of the Communist Party of America (CPUSA – Communist Party U.S.A.) in the 1930’s and 1940’s.

Why did she become a communist? In her words, “Because only the Communists seemed to care about what was happening to people in 1932 and 1933, I said. They were fighting hunger and misery and fascism then, and neither the major political parties nor the churches seemed to care. That is why I am a Communist.”

In her public affidavit, among other things, Bella V. Dodd stated: “In the late 1920’s and 1930’s, 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 [Roman] Catholic seminaries”. Interestingly, Bella Dodd did not include this info in her book “School of Darkness.” Dr. Alice von Hildebrand, a friend of Bella V. Dodd, reportedly said in an interview on Monday, 28 July, 2003 with International News Analysis Today that Bella Dodd had refrained from detailing Communist efforts to undermine the Catholic Priesthood at the request of Bishop Fulton J. Sheen, the person responsible for bringing Dodd back into the Roman Catholic Church. My guess is he didn’t want to get it a worldwide story and maybe he thought he they could fix it internally?

Dr. Alice von Hildebrand confirmed that Bella V. Dodd had publicly stated the same things to which she attested in her public affidavit.

In a lecture at Fordham University during that time, Dr. Dodd unveiled what would seem to be an uncanny prophecy of future chaos in the Church.

Speaking as a former high ranking official of the American Communist Party, in 1950, a dozen years before Synod Vatican 2, Bella Dodd said in part: “In the 1930’s we put eleven hundred men into the priesthood in order to destroy the [Roman Catholic] Church from within. The idea was for these men to be Ordained and progress to positions of influence and authority as Monsignors and Bishops.” She related to her friend Dr Alice von Hildebrand, 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).” Recall this was before even the Second Vatican Council.

“Right now they [the Communist infiltrators] are in the highest places in the Church” where they are working to bring about CHANGE in order to weaken the Church’s effectiveness against Communism. You will not recognize the Catholic Church.”

Manning R. Johnson was the Communist candidate for U.S. Representative from New York 22nd District, 1935; (belonged to the Communist party in the 1940’s and early 1950’s) he subsequently left the party, wrote Color, Communism, and Common Sense, and was a government witness in the perjury trial of Harry Bridges and before the Committee on Un-American Activities.

After leaving the Party, he testified in 1953 before the House un-American Activities Committee regarding the Communist Agenda and the Catholic Church: “Once the tactic of infiltration of religious organizations was set by the Kremlin … the Communists discovered that the destruction of religion could proceed much faster through infiltration of the (Catholic) Church by Communists operating within the Church itself. The Communist leadership in the United States realized that the infiltration tactic in this country would have to adapt itself to American conditions (Europe also had its cells) and the religious make-up peculiar to this country. In the earliest stages it was determined that with only small forces available to them, it would be necessary to concentrate Communist agents in the seminaries. The practical conclusion drawn by the Red leaders was that these institutions would make it possible for a small Communist minority to influence the ideology of future clergymen in the paths conducive to Communist purposes This policy of infiltrating seminaries was successful beyond even our Communist expectations.”

Albert Vassart, a former member of the French communist party, revealed in 1955 that Moscow had issued a 1936 order that carefully selected members of communist youth to enter seminaries and, after training, receive ordination as priests. Some of these were to infiltrate religious orders, particularly the Dominicans (In his essay, “Satan at Work,” the great Catholic philosopher Dietrich von Hildebrand reported that the French Dominicans had become so communistic in their “evangelization” that in 1953, the Order barely escaped dissolution by the order of Pope Pius XII.)

In 1972, the French author, Marie Carré (1905-1984), published a novel – a purported memoir of a soviet agent, entitled AA-1025: The Memoirs of an Anti-Apostle. The protagonist, a French nurse who had converted (like Marie Carré herself) from Protestantism to Catholicism, comes across an injured man, unable to speak, whom she decides to call “Michael,” and finds a hundred-page diary in his possessions. It recounts his being a Soviet spy and Catholic seminarian, working undercover to subvert the Church. The diary also reveals that he is the latest addition to the 1,024 agents already commissioned in this strange espionage. The injured man dies, and the nurse declares that this man’s story has to be made public.

The master-plan of “Michael,” includes the following key elements:

  • Change “Catholic” to “universal.” All religions are the same: “You must drive into the head of men, and particularly into the head of Churchmen, to search for, at any price, a universal religion into which all churches would be melded together.”
  • Make use of “charity” to instill remorse into Catholics, apologizing for lack of consideration for Protestants and other religions. Let the apologies begin!
  • Ultimately, change “charity” itself, which has supernatural connotations, to “love” and urge churchmen to instill love of lower classes and social justice.
  • Return to Protestant simplicity. The agenda: “To show that the luxury and art found in Catholic and Orthodox Churches are intensely disliked by Protestants, Jews, and Moslems. To suggest that this useless show must be suppressed for a greater welfare. To excite an iconoclastic zeal. Youngsters must destroy all this hodgepodge: statues, pictures, reliquaries, priestly ornaments, organs, candles and votive lamps, stained glass, and cathedrals, etc., etc. …”
  • As corollaries of this movement, a whole gamut of further changes must follow: Get rid of cassocks and any external garb indicating religious dedication; suppress Latin, kneeling at liturgies, the Rosary and Marian devotions, Gregorian chant and traditional sacred music; and especially, downplay any special reverence for the Host as the “Real Presence.” This communist agent writes: “To weaken more the notion of ‘Real Presence’ of Christ, all decorum will have to be set aside. No more costly embroidered vestments, no more music called sacred, especially no more Gregorian chant, but a music in jazz style, no more sign of the Cross, no more genuflections, but only dignified stern attitudes…Moreover the faithful will have to break themselves the habit of kneeling, and this will be absolutely forbidden when receiving Communion…Very soon, the Host will be laid in the hand in order that all notion of the Sacred be erased.”
  • Supplant the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass with “the Lord’s Supper.” Anything redolent of sacrifice has to be downplayed. The whole ceremony should represent only a common meal, as among most Protestants. Altars must disappear, and bare tables, to which all are invited, should take their place.
  • What must take priority over everything else is that each one will follow his own conscience. “This method, invented by Protestants, which consists in obeying one’s conscience, is of great excellence. It does not permit giving orders that will risk displeasing some, and it allows replacing these orders by various suggestions which let freedom act at ease. All that is permitted among Protestants, even if only in one sect, must be authorized among Catholics, that is, the remarriage of divorcees, polygamy, contraception and euthanasia.”
  • Conscience becomes the sole arbiter: “As for the Sacrament called Penance, it would be replaced by a community ceremony, which will only be an examination of conscience directed by a well-trained priest, all of which would be followed by a general absolution, as in some Protestant Churches. The motives for contrition will be only the lack of justice toward others.”
  • The sacrament of Extreme Unction will have to be renamed, to emphasize comfort in sickness. But “we will have to see to it that the notion of eternal life, judgment, Heaven, Purgatory or Hell be replaced by the sole desire to be cured.”
  • Finally, all emphasis should be put on the goodness of God: “Many are well disposed to believe that the goodness of God surpasses every offense. All we have to do is to insist on this goodness. A God whom no one fears quickly becomes a God about whom no one thinks.” (3)

LGBT rights under communism have evolved radically throughout history. In the 20th century, Marxist states and parties varied on LGBT rights, with some being among the first political parties to support LGBT rights, while others maintained anti-LGBT views. In the 21st century, communist parties in the West are generally pro-LGBT rights.

Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels said very little on the subject in their published works. Marx in particular commented rarely on sexuality in general. Engels criticized male homosexuality and related it to ancient Greek pederasty. (4)

In the early Soviet Union the Communist Party abolished all oppressive Czarist laws in 1917 related to sexuality. In 1917 the Soviet government also decriminalized homosexuality, and the subsequent Soviet criminal code in the 1920s did not criminalize non-commercial same-sex sexuality between consenting adults in private. It also provided for no-fault divorce and legalized abortion. In 1933, Joseph Stalin added Article 121 to the entire Soviet Union criminal code, which made male homosexuality a crime punishable by up to five years in prison with hard labor. The few official government statements made about the law tended to confuse homosexuality with pedophilia and was tied up with a belief that homosexuality was practiced only among fascists or the aristocracy. The law remained intact until after the dissolution of the Soviet Union; it was repealed in 1993. (5)

Gay men were sometimes denied membership or expelled (Doug Ireland: Turns out Norman Thomas’s Socialist Party Came Close to Breaking the Gay Taboo in 1952″. Archived from the original on 1 July 2009. Retrieved 29 April 2017) from communist parties across the globe during the 20th Century, as most communist parties followed the social precedents set by the USSR. However, this was not the case in the West.

Mark Ashton (founder of Lesbians and Gays Support the Miners and LGBT rights advocate) – member of the Communist Party of Great Britain.

Harry Hay (gay rights activist, labor advocate, Native American civil rights campaigner, Mattachine Society founder, co-founder of LA Gay Liberation Front) – member of the Communist Party USA.

The phrase sexual Bolshevism originated in Weimar Germany in the 1920s by Pastor Ludwig Hoppe of Berlin as a more general term of approbation at licentiousness. When Nazi Germany came into being after the failures of the Weimar government, the Nazis used the term “sexual Bolshevism” to refer to perceived sexual degeneracy, in particular homosexuality. (6)

What were the events leading to the association of communism with homosexuality?

The advance of doctors, psychologists and social workers into the arena of human sexuality during the Weimar era (as well as the feminist movement) threw up a variety of conspiracy theories, especially amongst more conservative aspects of society, regarding communism and homosexuality. Any form of sexual revolution was derided as promiscuity and leading to a rise in sexually transmitted infections. The response of those who opposed “sexual Bolshevism” was to promote eugenics and family values. (7)

There are specific events which glbtq.com (“an encyclopedia of gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and queer culture”) claims to have contributed to the linkage of communism with homosexuality in the United States, as well:

For example, in 1948, Whittaker Chambers, an editor and writer at Time magazine and a former Communist Party member and courier in a Soviet spy ring infiltrating the American government, accused Alger Hiss, head of the Carnegie Endowment, of perjury and, implicitly, of Soviet espionage. The vast media coverage of the scandal hinted that Chambers had a crush on Hiss, establishing a link between Communism and homosexuality. Chambers was only too eager to strengthen this link, declaring to the FBI that his homosexual activities had stopped once he had left the Communist Party. In addition, the 1951 flight to the Soviet Union of gay British spies Guy Burgess and Donald Maclean also helped fuel the association of homosexuality and treason in the public imagination. (8)

Since the mid-1970s some parties in the Western world have begun to adopt homosexual rights as part of their platform.

 

What did the Popes say about Communism?

LEO XIII (1878-1903)

Overthrow is Deliberately Planned“… — For, the fear of God and reverence for divine laws being taken away, the authority of rulers despised, sedition permitted and approved, and the popular passions urged on to lawlessness, with no restraint save that of punishment, a change and overthrow of all things will necessarily follow. Yea, this change and overthrow is deliberately planned and put forward by many associations of communists and socialists.”(Encyclical Humanum Genus, April 20, 1884, n. 27)

Debasing the Natural Union of Man and Woman– “They [socialists, communists, or nihilists] debase the natural union of man and woman, which is held sacred even among barbarous peoples; and its bond, by which the family is chiefly held together, they weaken, or even deliver up to lust.(Encyclical Quod Apostolici Muneris, December 28, 1878, n. 1)

The Harvest of Misery“ — …there is need for a union of brave minds with all the resources they can command. The harvest of misery is before our eyes, and the dreadful projects of the most disastrous national upheavals are threatening us from the growing power of the socialistic movement.”(Encyclical Graves de Communi Re, January 18, 1901, n. 21)

SAINT PIUS X (1903-1914)

The Dream of Re-Shaping Society will Bring Socialism — “But stranger still, alarming and saddening at the same time, are the audacity and frivolity of men who call themselves Catholics and dream of re-shaping society under such conditions, and of establishing on earth, over and beyond the pale of the Catholic Church, ‘the reign of love and justice’ … What are they going to produce? … A mere verbal and chimerical construction in which we shall see, glowing in a jumble, and in seductive confusion, the words Liberty, Justice, Fraternity, Love, Equality, and human exultation, all resting upon an ill-understood human dignity. It will be a tumultuous agitation, sterile for the end proposed, but which will benefit the less Utopian exploiters of the people. Yes, we can truly say that the Sillon, its eyes fixed on a chimera, brings Socialism in its train.”

(Apostolic Letter Notre Charge Apostolique [“Our Apostolic Mandate”] to the French Bishops, August 15, 1910, condemning the movement Le Sillon)

BENEDICT XV (1914-1922)

Never Forget the Condemnation of Socialism — “It is not our intention here to repeat the arguments which clearly expose the errors of Socialism and of similar doctrines. Our predecessor, Leo XIII, most wisely did so in truly memorable Encyclicals; and you, Venerable Brethren, will take the greatest care that those grave precepts are never forgotten, but that whenever circumstances call for it, they should be clearly expounded and inculcated in Catholic associations and congresses, in sermons and in the Catholic press.”

(Encyclical Ad Beatissimi Apostolorum, November 1, 1914, n. 13)

PIUS XI (1922-1939)

Socialism Cannot Be Reconciled with Catholic Doctrine — “We make this pronouncement: Whether considered as a doctrine, or an historical fact, or a movement, Socialism, if it remains truly Socialism, even after it has yielded to truth and justice on the points which we have mentioned, cannot be reconciled with the teachings of the Catholic Church because its concept of society itself is utterly foreign to Christian truth.”

(Encyclical Quadragesimo Anno, May 15, 1931, n. 117)

Catholic Socialism is a Contradiction — “[Socialism] is based nevertheless on a theory of human society peculiar to itself and irreconcilable with true Christianity. Religious socialism, Christian socialism, are contradictory terms; no one can be at the same time a good Catholic and a true socialist.” (Ibid. n. 120)

PIUS XII (1939-1958)

The Church Will Fight Socialism to the End — “[The Church undertook] the protection of the individual and the family against a current threatening to bring about a total socialization which in the end would make the specter of the ‘Leviathan’ become a shocking reality. The Church will fight this battle to the end, for it is a question of supreme values: the dignity of man and the salvation of souls.”

“Radio message to the Katholikentag of Vienna,” September 14, 1952 in Discorsi e Radiomessaggi, vol. XIV, p. 314

The All-Powerful State Harms True Prosperity — “To consider the State as something ultimate to which everything else should be subordinated and directed, cannot fail to harm the true and lasting prosperity of nations.”

(Encyclical Summi Pontificatus, October 20, 1939, n. 60)

JOHN XXIII (1958-1963)

“No Catholic could subscribe even to moderate socialism” — “Pope Pius XI further emphasized the fundamental opposition between Communism and Christianity, and made it clear that no Catholic could subscribe even to moderate Socialism. The reason is that Socialism is founded on a doctrine of human society which is bounded by time and takes no account of any objective other than that of material well-being. Since, therefore, it proposes a form of social organization which aims solely at production; it places too severe a restraint on human liberty, at the same time flouting the true notion of social authority.”

(Encyclical Mater et Magistra, May 15, 1961, n. 34)

Also, RELIGIOSORUM INSTITUTIO, Careful Selection And Training Of Candidates For The States Of Perfection And Sacred Orders (S. C. Rel., 2 Feb., 1961) is a document to get back into the mainstream

Just a few

Now we did have a revelation that even mentioned Communism by name. The Holy Face devotion given by Our Lord to Sister Mary of St Peter

 

PROMISES OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST

Revelations to Sr. Mary of St. Peter,

Discalced Carmelite Nun of Tours, France, in favor of those who honor His Holy Face. Details of these revelations are found in the book named The Golden Arrow (the autobiography of Sister Mary of St. Peter)

 

  1. By offering My Face to My Eternal Father, nothing will be refused, and the conversion of many sinners will be obtained.
  2. By My Holy Face, they will work wonders, appease the anger of God and draw down mercy on sinners.
  3. All those who honor My Face in a spirit of reparation will by so doing perform the office of the pious Veronica.
  4. According to the care they take in making reparation to My Face disfigured by blasphemers, so will I take care of their souls which have been disfigured by sin. My Face is the Seal of the Divinity, which has the virtue of reproducing in souls the image of God.
  5. Those who by words, prayers or writings defend My cause in the Work of Reparation, especially My priests, I will defend before My Father, and will give them My Kingdom.
  6. A sin a kingdom they can procure all that is desired with a coin stamped with the King’s effigy, so in the Kingdom of Heaven they will obtain all they desire with the precious coin of My Holy Face.
  7. Those who on earth contemplate the wounds of My Face shall in Heaven behold it radiant with glory.
  8. They will receive in their souls a bright and constant irradiation of My Divinity, that by their likeness to My Face they shall shine with particular splendor in Heaven.
  9. I will defend them, I will preserve them and I assure them of Final Perseverance.

 

FURTHER REVELATIONS FROM OUR DIVINE LORD CONCERNING REPARATION TO HIS HOLY FACE, as told to Sister Mary of St. Peter:

…It is the express will of God that this devotion be established in every diocese; that it be most zealously propagated; and granted a papal brief so that it will never perish.

…This devotion is to have the TWOFOLDPURPOSE OF REPARATION FOR

BLASPHEMY and REPARATION FOR THE PROFANATION OF SUNDAY and Holy Days of Obligation, the two principal sins which in modem times are provoking the anger of God. Sr. Mary said, “He then made me see that this frightful sin wounds His Divine Heart more grievously than all other sins, showing me how by BLASPHEMY the sinner curses Him to His Face, attacks Him publicly, nullifies HIs Redemption, and pronounces his own judgment and condemnation…The Savior made me understand that His justice was greatly irritated against mankind for its sins but particularly for those that directly outrage the Majesty of God–that is, Communism, Atheism, cursing, and the desecration of Sundays and the Holy Days. He said, The executioners crucified Me On Friday, CHRISTIANS CRUCIFY ME ON SUNDAY.”

…This association is to be called Defenders of the Holy Name of God.

…Each day, in a spirit of REPARATION, members are to say one Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory Be To The Father, and the “Golden Arrow” prayer. On Sundays and Holy Days of Obligation ALL the prayers of reparation are to be said.

…Members must refrain from work on Sundays themselves, and do what is in their power to see that others stop all unnecessary servile work on the holy days of the Lord.

…Members should wear a special cross with the words “Blessed be the Name of God”, on one side, and “Begone Satan!” on the reverse, which gives a special resourcefulness to conquer the demon of blasphemy. (See below for details on obtaining this cross)

…Every time one hears a curse he should repeat the two short inscriptions on each side of the cross, and he will thus overcome the evil one, and render glory to God.

…The association is to be place under the patronage of Saints: Michael, Martin of Tours, Louis, Veronica, and Teresa of Avila.

…Our Lord desires that His Holy Face be offered as the exterior object of adoration to all his children who would be associated with this work of Reparation. His Holy Face is the very Image of God. “Offer It unceasingly to My Father for the salvation of your country”

…”The treasure of My Holy Face in itself possesses such tremendous value that through It ALL the affairs of My household can readily be settled.”

…”If you knew how pleasing the sight of My Face is to My Father.”

…This was the first revelation from heaven concerning Communism. Our Lord said that this devotion would defeat it. Itis, therefore, the sister-devotion to the Fatima devotion–necessary to save the world. (There are many knowledgeable people who say that the present “collapse” of Communism is a deception, and that these devotions are needed now more than ever before.)

…Our Lord told Sr. Mary, ‘Woe to those cities that will not make this Reparation!”

…He said, “Sinners are snatched from this world and they are swept into hell like the dust that is carried away by the fury of a tornado. Have pity on your brothers and pray for them!”

…One can make a NOVENA OF REPARATION TO OBTAIN A FAVOR by saying the “Golden Arrow ” prayer and “The Litany of the Holy Face” on nine consecutive days, preferably before the Blessed Sacrament or the picture of the Holy Face, and by going to Confession and Holy Communion.

These revelations and more are to be found in THE GOLDEN ARROW (www.tanbooks.com).”This book is based upon and quoting authentic French manuscripts emanating directly from the archives of the Monastery of Discalced Carmelites, Tours, France, where Sr. Mary of St. Peter lived and died in the odor of sanctity.”

In the absence of a formal association in a parish, individuals should say the prayers and follow Our Lord’s directives as best they can.

OUR LORD’S REVELATIONS WERE FOLLOWED BY 30 years of miracles attesting to the truth and power of this devotion. In 1885Pope Leo XIII, by papal brief, established this devotion as an archconfraternity; and contrary to custom, immediately established it FOR THE ENTIRE WORLD. It was universally practiced until a few years before World War I. THE NEGLECT OF THIS DEVOTION AND OF OUR LADY’S REQUESTS AT FATIMA IN 1917, ESPECIALLY THE DAILY ROSARY, was followed by two world wars, the murder or enslavement of billions of people by Communism, and an unprecedented increase in sin and loss of faith. This pamphlet has been printed in an attempt to revive this extremely important devotion, which Christ wants to last until the end of time.

 

So what can we do? Why not pick up this devotion to the Holy Face? Print out a copy of the photo, hang it in your homes, get the chaplet, say the prayers and offer reparation daily.

You can obtain the medals at Our Lady of the Rosary Library
