“In the 1930s we put eleven hundred men into the priesthood in order to destroy the Church from within.” – Bella Dodd, Communist.
With today being the start of a months long reflection on the Sacred Heart of Jesus and Jesus being the First Priest, I would like to discuss the participating parties that had a high hand in the Corruption of the Roman Catholic Priesthood. I have been researching this subject for 10 years. My passion began when I was confronted several times by not only friends and colleagues – but also my family as to how can I be Roman Catholic with all the corruption in the Church. I needed an answer to their why, and so my research began to understand how did the Priesthood get to the point it was at in the late 90’s.
I was not looking to protect the predators, the ones who came into the Roman Catholic Priesthood with ill intensions from the beginning. I was looking to protect the good names of the Priests that are truly Holy men and took their Ordination as seriously as Jesus Christ did that afternoon as He walked to Calvary with His Cross.
I truly believe what my Patron Saint, Saint Teresa of Avila said; Christ has no body but yours, No hands, no feet on earth but yours, Yours are the eyes with which He looks Compassion on this world,
Yours are the feet with which He walks to do good, Yours are the hands, with which He blesses all the world.
Yours are the hands, yours are the feet,
Yours are the eyes, you are his body.
Christ has no body now but yours,
No hands, no feet on earth but yours,
Yours are the eyes with which he looks
compassion on this world.
Christ has no body now on earth but yours.”
…. If not me, then who? Then who is going to defend our Ladies Priesthood because the Roman Catholic Priesthood belongs to Our Blessed Mother Mary and She works so adamantly, all of the time to protect the Priesthood as Her Son was the First Priest. Why would She not to do this? And so my heart was set ablaze to protect Her and Her Priests.
And with each passing year, each new conversation, each question that somebody would have for me, each time that I would get a dirty look for defending the Roman Catholic Priesthood – this drove me even more to defend the good Holy Priests that serve Our Savior.
The reality is, is that there was a lot of corruption in the Priesthood – but it also did not seem right – that there was something else behind this and so calling on the Holy Spirit and the Holy Spirit already knowing what was in my soul, I began to research – to find out the best that I could -what happened? How did this begin and when did it become this bad?
In the world, we have over 4,300 different religions. A staggering number. When we look back into the history of the Church, which Church do we see is at the beginning of the timeline? We look back to to the Cenacle. The first Church to exist was the Roman Catholic Church, which was initiated by Our Lord Himself.
When we look at all Christian religions, we see that in the news, we traditionally hear more about the Roman Catholic Church, compared to Protestant, Methodist, Jehovah, Baptist etc. This got me to thinking – why? Why is it you only hear about the Roman Catholic Church and you rarely hear about any other religions – even though there are stories of sexual molestation in so many different religions. And with an insight from Our Blessed Mother Mary, with spiritual guidance from the Holy Spirit, I began to see – my intellect was enlightened. I was made to understand through Our Lady – because it is the Holy Roman Catholic Church that loves Our Blessed Mother Mary more than any other religion and Satan hated Her first – Satan hated Her first because She gave Her Fiat to God.
We need to all stop and think about this and internalize this – especially people who are not Roman Catholic and they don’t believe in giving Our Blessed Mother Mary all of the love that She deserves – the Love that Jesus wants us to give to Her. Some people say that She’s just a mother, she’s just a woman who gave birth to Jesus? She’s not just a mother.
She is The Mother.
When we take the Holy Eucharist – we need to remember Our Lady, because our Blessed Mother gave Her Fiat to carry Jesus and so we need to think about all of these things. We need to put this all into a bigger picture and not just look at the Priests that have done the corruption, we need to see that Satan infiltrated the entire Roman Catholic Church. Why not the Protestant churches, why not the Methodist churches? Have you ever seen a statue of the Blessed Mother Mary in any of those churches? Are those churches being attacked by the devil as much as the Roman Catholic Church has been? No. Think about it, contemplate on this. Because there are stories of sexual abuse that are absolutely horrific in the Protestant churches, and the Methodist churches, in the Jehovah witnesses, Baptists. Do research and find out these stories- but why is it – that the Roman Catholic Church is in neon lights with corruption?
Since the early 80’s, news began to circulate about sexual abuse in the Roman Catholic Church and by the 90’s cases began to receive significant attention. In the early 2000’s, the Boston Globe began an investigation into the sexual abuse cases. From 2001 to 2010, the Holy See examined abuse cases involving 3,000 Priests, some of which dated back fifty years.
When the timeline is looked at, we now need to discuss Communism and when Communism was at its peak in the United States of America. The first person I would like to speak about is Bella Dodd.
Bella Dodd who served as legal counsel to the Communist Party in the United States in the 1950’s, years before Vatican II stated that: “Right now they are in the highest places. In the 1930s we put eleven hundred men into the priesthood in order to destroy the Church from within.”
The communist party in the United States of America was working to bring about change in order to weaken the Church’s effectiveness against Communism.” Bella Dodd said that these changes would be so drastic that “you will not recognise the Catholic Church.”
Bella Dodd gave testimony on the Communist Infiltration of Church and state before the House UnAmerican Activities Committee in the 1950s. In a lecture at Fordham University Bella Dodd unveiled what would seem to be a prophecy of future chaos in the Church. The lecture was attended by a monk whose account of the talk is presented in Christian Order:
“I listened to that woman for four hours and she had my hair standing on end. Everything she said has been fulfilled to the letter. You would think she was the world’s greatest prophet, but she was no prophet. She was merely exposing the step-by-step battle plan of Communist subversion of the Catholic Church. She explained that of all the world’s religions, the Catholic Church was the only one feared by the Communists, for it was its only effective opponent. The whole idea was to destroy, not the institution of the Church, but rather the Faith of the people, and even use the institution of the Church, if possible, to destroy the Faith through the promotion of a pseudo-religion: something that resembled Catholicism but was not the real thing. Once the Faith was destroyed, she explained that there would be a guilt complex introduced into the Church…. to label the ‘Church of the past’ as being oppressive, authoritarian, full of prejudices, arrogant in claiming to be the sole possessor of truth, and responsible for the divisions of religious bodies throughout the centuries. This would be necessary in order to shame Church leaders into an ‘openness to the world,’ and to a more flexible attitude toward all religions and philosophies. The Communists would then exploit this openness in order to undermine the Church.
I will continue to write on this matter weekly. With every new generation, stories like this go under the rug and we don’t hear about them and we need to. We must protect the future of the Most Holy Roman Catholic Church, because it began by God, who so loved this world that He gave us His only begotten Son- but it was not just God, it was Our Blessed Mother Mary who gave Her only Son and so I will continue to protect Our Blessed Mother Mary’s Priesthood and to uncover the scandalous truths that still to this day taint the Church even though so much has changed. The Devil will never stop with the Roman Catholic Church as it is the Church that Our Lord founded, our Lord and Savior who the devil absolutely hates and despises, but above Jesus – the devil despises Our Blessed Mother even more.
