The Black Death of Today
Throughout the entire world we are in the presence of a tragic and unheard of situation, which seems never to have happened before in the history of the Church. It is the virus of Modernism, which, like the plague called “The Black Death” is laying waste to the Church today. The Catholic faith in a Catholic world, has been in the process of totally breaking up for over 50 years now. The still hidden and unrevealed portion of the Third Secret of Fatima, which earlier this month was purported to have included something about an “Evil Council” or “Bad Council” and an “Evil Mass” or “Bad Mass”, certainly sheds some light on matters.
Enemy in the Church
It was Pope Paul VI, himself, who spoke of self-destruction within the Church. What does this term self-destruction mean, if it is not that the Church is destroying Herself by Herself, and hence by Her own members. This is already what Pope St. Pius X said in his first encyclical when he wrote: “Henceforth the enemy of the church is no longer outside the church, he is now within.” And the Pope did not hesitate to designate those places where he was to be found: “The enemy is found in the seminaries.”
Consequently, the holy Pope St. Pius X already denounced the presence of the enemies of the Church in the seminaries at the beginning of the century. Obviously the seminarians of the time, who were imbued with Modernism, later became priests. Some of them even became Bishops and among them were even some Cardinals. It is Bishops and Cardinals who have the final say on who gets ordained to the priesthood and who gets promoted. “Birds of a feather flock together” and “Like likes like”. The spread of a virus is very instructive in this regard.
The Virus of Modernism Spreads
A virus is filled with bits of DNA—similarly, a Modernist is filled with Rationalism and Liberalism. This DNA is used by the virus (Modernist) to reproduce. A virus cannot reproduce on its own, it needs to enlist the help of a cell (another Catholic soul). In order to reproduce itself, a virus (Modernist) releases its DNA (Rationalism and Liberalism) into a cell (another Catholic soul).
Remember that DNA (Rationalism and Liberalism) in a cell's (soul’s) nucleus, is what directs the activities of the cell (soul). By releasing DNA (Rationalism and Liberalism) into the cell (another Catholic soul), the virus (Modernist) is able to take control of the cell (another Catholic soul). Instead of performing its normal functions, the cell (another Catholic soul) begins to do only one thing, create new viruses (Modernists).
Through this process, the cell (soul) becomes a parent to a new generation of viruses (Modernists). The cell (soul) is helping to create an enemy that will attack other cells (souls). Eventually the cell bursts (the children leave home, the students leave school, the seminarians are ordained), releasing the newly created viruses (Modernists). These viruses (Modernists) will then attack other cells (souls), repeating the process.
Enemy in the Family?
Yet, the danger is that the faithful will be looking at the seminaries on the lookout for the enemy, and will not notice the enemy creeping into the family home and school through the unguarded back door and open windows!
Family, relatives and friends are the devil’s preferred Wooden Horses of Troy. There is an old saying: "Beware of Greeks bearing gifts!" This saying comes from the legend of the Trojan Horse. You all know the story! A long time ago, there was an ancient city-state on the coast of Turkey, across the sea from Sparta. This city-state was named Troy. At one time, Troy and the other Greek city-states were pretty good friends. But times had changed. Now the Greeks had become enemies of Troy.
The city of Troy was protected by a high wall built around the city. Some parts of the wall were 20 feet high and very thick! There were gates in the wall to let people in and out, but it provided great defense for the people of Troy. It gave the Trojan warriors a relatively safe place to stand, while they rained arrows down on the people below, who were trying to break into the city. The Greek warriors had been trying to breach the wall around Troy for about ten years. The Greeks could not find a way in, and the Trojans did not seem able to drive the Greeks away.
Odysseus, a Greek general, had an idea. His plan was to build a horse, a beautiful and huge wooden horse, and leave it outside the gate. Then, the entire Greek army would pretend to leave, as if they had finally admitted defeat. But the horse would be hollow. Thirty men would be hiding inside. That's what they did. As the Greek warriors sailed away, the people of Troy rushed outside, cheering. They found the horse. Fortunately, they did not try to burn the horse. They dragged the horse inside the city gates to keep it on display, which is just what the Greek general thought they would do―gloat.
That night, while the Trojan people were sleeping, the men hiding inside the wooden horse climbed out and opened the gates. The waiting Greek army, which had returned after pretending to sail away, entered Troy. That was the end of Troy. A similar scenario plays itself out, or has already played itself out, in most Catholic families.
You Are Only As Strong As Your Weakest Link
The Titanic sank, not because the whole side of the hull was gashed wide open, but initially the gash was merely the size of a house door. The Titanic did not sink immediately, but fairly quickly nonetheless. Additionally, the Titanic had ignored repeated warnings from other ships in the area about the dangerous icebergs that were being encountered. The radio-room of the Titanic told other radio signalers to “shut-up” because they were too busy sending vain messages from passengers on board the ship to the mainland. They were too worldly-conscious and not safety-conscious enough!
At the British enquiry following the accident, Edward Wilding (chief naval architect for Harland and Wolff), calculating on the basis of the observed flooding of forward compartments, forty minutes after the collision, testified that the area of the hull opened to the sea was “somewhere about 12 square feet” (just smaller that an average house door), it was not one big single gash, for he stated that “I believe it must have been in places, and not a continuous rip”, but that the different openings must have extended along an area of around 300 feet, to account for the flooding in several compartments. Modern ultrasound surveys of the wreck have confirmed this to be true, as they have found that the damage consisted of six narrow openings in an area of the hull covering only about 12 to 13 square feet (just smaller that an average house door) in total.
The same can be true for any and every "Titanic" family. A false sense of security and complacency makes families think―we can't possibly sink! We are too strong! We see the problems! We are too well-equipped for our Faith to sink! Many a shipwrecked family thought this way! You may be strong, you may be well aware of the dangers, you may be well-equipped, but, at the end of the day, you are only as strong as your weakest link. St. Ignatius of Loyola, in the Rules for the Spiritual Exercises, says that the devil will invariably attack you at your weakest point. What is weakest point in your family? Who is the weakest link? It is that weakest point that will be most often attacked and it is that weakest link that will more often than not be the virus-carrier of Modernism and Liberalism and lukewarmness.
We Let Family Members Get Away With ‘Murder’
Who likes correcting family members? Who likes ‘fighting’ with family members? If anyone is likely to have a blind-eye turned towards them, then it is more likely to be a family member, or a relative, than someone outside the family. We have sayings that imply this, such as: “This stays within the family!” … “We keep family failings private and don’t talk about them!” … “We don’t wash our dirty laundry in public!” … etc.
Of course, some things are best kept within the confines of the family—there is nothing wrong with that, providing the family sets about correcting the problems, or washing its own dirty laundry to get it clean. Modernism can “come-out-in-the-wash” if it is properly ‘washed’. It is when no serious efforts and sanctions are taken, that the danger escalates and threatens to ruin others also.
Clothes & Smoky Rooms—Catholics & Modernist Views
We are all familiar with phrases such as: "You are what you eat!" ... "You are what you read!" ... "Tell me who your friends are, and I'll tell you what you are!" ... "One bad apple spoils the whole box!" ... etc.
These phrases serve as an indicator of what happens in a family that allows the germ or virus of Modernism to enter unrecognized and/or uncombatted. Remember, that in the physical and natural domain, one tiny virus can put an entire family in the sick-bed. A virus can very easily and very quickly pass from one family member to another. Families get sick, not because they want to get sick, not because they love the circulating virus, but because they take insufficient measures to prevent its entry and insufficient measures of elimination if entry has already been made.
Liberalism's & Modernism's Alluring Network &Disguises
Very often, the virus of Modernism has the DNA and genes of its parents, Rationalism and Liberalism, and these factors often command respect and are even likeable.
In his book Liberalism Is A Sin―a book heartily recommended by the Vatican in better less-Liberal days―Fr. Salvany paints the picture of the seductively likeable Liberal: “Liberalism [and its child, Modernism] is spread around us like a network … Its web is being constantly spun round about us as spiders weave their meshes for insects. Where one is brushed away, two are multiplied … Unless one is on his guard, he finds himself thinking, speaking and acting as a Liberal [Modernist].” (Fr. Salvany, Liberalism Is A Sin).
“Sometimes Liberalism stalks along in the careless trappings of an easy-going good nature or a simplicity of character, which invites our affection and allays our suspicion ... Appearances may be fair, and the devil may present himself as an angel of light. The danger is the greater as the outward show is more seductive ... Most to be feared, however, is not he who openly boasts his Liberalism, but he who says he despises it and, vehemently denying it, is yet steeped to the lips in Liberalism and continually speaks and acts under its inspiration. And if such a man be a Catholic by profession, all the more dangerous is he to the Faith of others, for he is the hidden enemy sowing tares amidst the wheat”(Fr. Salvany, Liberalism Is A Sin).
“Heroes are rare, and it is natural that most young men beginning their career should affiliate with Liberalism … and youth is ordinarily rarely scrupulous ... Men become Liberal out of avarice, or the love of money. To get along in the world, to succeed in business, is always a standing temptation of Liberalism. It meets the young man at every turn. Around him in a thousand ways does he feel the secret or open hostility of the enemies of his Faith” (Fr. Salvany, Liberalism Is A Sin).
Danger From Family, Relatives and Friends
We can compare ‘killing’ or ‘rape’ of the Faith to physical murder and abuse, whereby most of those cases are committed by a family member, acquaintance or boyfriend. Murder statistics show that in 2009, 24% of victims (about 1 in 4) were slain by family members; 54% (over half) were killed by someone they knew (acquaintance, neighbor, friend, boyfriend, etc.). The same is true for sexual assault. On the US Government’s National Institute for Justice website, research on sexual violence indicates that: “Sexual violence may occur in any type of relationship, but most perpetrators of sexual assault are known to their victims. The Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS) reports that 6 in 10 rape or sexual assault victims said that they were assaulted by an intimate partner, relative, friend or acquaintance. One research project found that 34 percent of women surveyed were victims of sexual coercion by a husband or intimate partner in their lifetime”
The bottom-line here is that these crimes were committed by people who were trusted by the victim. Similarly, the Faith can be more easily destroyed by those whom we know and trust, rather than strangers.
False Charity Protects the Virus
Most people are over-tolerant of the ones they love and are slow or reluctant to correct them in a powerful and effective manner. This tendency is milked only too willingly by the devil, who puts us on a “guilt-trip” whenever we do correct them efficaciously.
This problem allows the ‘cancers’ of Liberalism and Modernism to grow. We are reluctantly forced into a compromise situation—the devil (or other family members, relatives and friends) will say: “Hey! Nobody’s perfect! At least they are not like so and so, and they don’t do such and such! Count your blessings and leave them alone! Stop trying to micro-manage everyone and everything! Have a sense of balance! A little fun hurt no one! Don’t be so serious about everything! God’s not like that! God understands!”
In the next article we shall examine these dangers a little closer and look at what protective measures and remedies we can and should take to prevent our Faith and Morals from which compromised and then weakened and finally destroyed or paralyzed.
You Won’t Believe This, But…
We are all Liberals—to some degree or another. We are all Modernists—to some degree of another. As the saying goes: “You cannot leave clothes in a smoky room for any length of time, without them taking on the smell of smoke!” We live in a Liberal and Modernist environment and we all stink of Liberalism or Modernism to one degree or another. The only question is--“Am I becoming more and more Liberal and/or Modernist? Or am I becoming less and less Liberal and/or Modernist? Is the disease conquering me? Or am I conquering the disease?”
We Want the Cure, But Not the Medicine
It is to be hoped that you do not want the disease of Liberalism and/or Modernism—but do you want the cure for it? Many want a cure, but won’t take the medicine. They don’t want the disease, but neither do they want to do what it takes to root out and control, and even destroy, the disease. They want an easy to fix to a complicated disease. They want a painless remedy when there isn’t one. If you want to be cured, you must also implicitly desire the available medicine. As the philosophical rule says: “He who desires a particular goal or end, must also necessarily desire the available means to that goal or end.” If you want to graduate from a particular university or college in a certain subject, then you must attend that university or college and assiduously study that subject.
Diseases of the Mind Need Medicines For the Mind
Now, since Liberalism and Modernism are primarily diseases of the mind—even though they later translate into words and actions—then the primary medicine must be for the mind. In other words—we must study, we must learn, we must remember what we study and learn, and then we must apply what we study, learn and remember to our daily and practical lives through our words and actions. Again, another philosophical axiom states: “You cannot give what you haven’t got!” There is no way that we will give a correct direction to our words and actions if we do not have correct thoughts in our minds—ideas have consequences and actions follow thoughts.
Good Heart—Loaded Mouth—Empty Head
The problem with most well-intentioned people today is that many of them have a “good heart”, but a “loaded-mouth” with an “empty-head”. They mean well, they want to do well, but they don’t or can’t think, because they don’t learn, and so, when they speak with their “loaded-mouth” they either shoot themselves in the foot, or speak stupidities that discredit and ridicule their well-meaning stance. They want to be “learned” without really learning! They want to appear wise, without really studying and meditating on what they study. They speak first and think afterwards—that is if they even think at all.
The Enemy of Ignorance
That is why Pope St. Pius X—one of the chief combatants of Liberalism and Modernism—said that the biggest enemy of the Catholic Church was not the Masons, nor the Jews, nor the Protestants, but the IGNORANCE OF CATHOLICS. If the mind is sharp, then it will not led astray and it will have an answer and correct judgment and critique for all that needs to be judged and critiqued. If we live, not by Faith and reason, but by impressions, feelings and emotions, then we will be like a loose leaf in the wind—not being attached to the tree (Faith and reason), we will be blown every which way the wind blows and will dizzily follow those winds of change.
Empty Tool Box
Talking about “ends” and “means” is much like talking about “problems” and “how to fix problems”. First we must accurately identify the problem—whether we be a doctor, a mechanic, a teacher, a coach, a gardener, etc. If the car won’t start, then I have go through a logical list of successive checks until I come across the likely problem. Identifying the problem is fine—but what good is that if I do not know how to fix the problem, or if I do have the tools to fix it. If I cannot clearly recognize the enemy (for he disguises himself very cleverly), then how will I know who to ‘shoot’ at with my arguments. Or what good is it to recognize the enemy, if I have no arguments to shoot with? The combat becomes one-sided and the outcome becomes inevitable. It is like a ten-year-old fighting against a Marine, or a Navy Sea. No contest!
For most people, the tool-boxes of their minds are pretty empty! Instead of mental tools, they have stuffed the tool-boxes of their minds with all kinds of non-essential garbage. Their tools merely deal with sports, entertainment, social activities, home care, gossip, etc. They have no idea how to explain the Faith logically and coherently, nor how to defend the Faith from the innumerable avenues of attack that occur all the time. They are not really interested in that. It is the same for their spiritual life—they desire to get to Heaven, but don’t want to lift much weight in getting there. They want their crosses to made from feathers and they would like to be stoned with popcorn! They neither know, nor want to know, the map and the directions that guide us to Heaven. Ignorance is bliss, or so they think! Yet Pope St. Pius X says that the ignorance of Catholics is the Church’s greatest enemy!
Pope Pius X & Modernism
In his famous—but rarely read—encyclical, Pascendi Dominici Gregis (meaning: “Of Feeding the Flock of the Lord”), Pope St. Pius very thoroughly addresses the problem of Modernism. Any halfway intelligent Catholic should take the time, to plough through this encyclical—a little bit at a time—squelching all the screams of “Boring!” coming from a mind that has been constantly fed the junk of worldly entertainment but little Catholic education.
On this “Good Shepherd Sunday” it is fitting and appropriate to address and also quote some sections of the holy Pope’s thoughts from his encyclical “Of Feeding the Flock of the Lord”. It might not be the diet that Catholic sheep today prefer, but it is a diet that might save them from being eaten-up by the wolves of Liberalism and Modernism.
The Pope opens the encyclical giving reasons for its necessity and his moral obligation for writing it:
“The office divinely committed to Us of feeding the Lord's flock has especially this duty assigned to it by Christ, namely, to guard with the greatest vigilance the deposit of the Faith, rejecting the profane novelties of words and oppositions of ‘knowledge’―which is falsely so called. There has never been a time when this watchfulness of the Supreme Pastor was not necessary to the Catholic body; for, owing to the efforts of the enemy of the human race, there have never been lacking "men speaking perverse things" (Acts 20:30), "vain talkers and seducers" (Titus 1:10), "erring and driving into error" (2 Timothy 3:13). Still it must be confessed that the number of the enemies of the cross of Christ has, in these last days, increased exceedingly, who are striving, by arts, entirely new and full of subtlety, to destroy the vital energy of the Church, and, if they can, to overthrow utterly Christ's kingdom itself. Wherefore We may no longer be silent, lest We should seem to fail in Our most sacred duty.”
What’s Your Duty?
If Pope St. Pius X felt it was his duty to address this disease, then it should all the more be our duty to listen to what he says. This means we need to read―then read some more―then read again―and never stop reading! We could say that “Reading each day keeps heresy away!” Most sheep end up being eaten! Why? They do not listen to the Pastor’s or Shepherd’s voice!
The Pope then goes on to point-out that the enemy of Modernism has infiltrated the Church Herself―the enemy is within! “That We make no delay in this matter, is made necessary especially by the fact that the partisans of error are to be sought―not only among the Church's open enemies―they also lie hid in Her very bosom and heart. We speak of the many who belong to the Catholic laity, and, far more lamentably, to the ranks of the priesthood itself, who, feigning a love for the Church, lacking the firm protection of philosophy and theology, and thoroughly filled with the poisonous doctrines taught by the enemies of the Church, pretend to be reformers of the Church; and attack all that is most sacred in the work of Christ, not sparing even the person of the Divine Redeemer, Whom, with sacrilegious daring, they reduce to a simple, mere man.”
Our Lady On Infiltration
Our Lady had already spoken of the Church’s infiltration at La Salette, 57 years before Pius X became pope (1903-194), and she did so once again at Akita, 59 after Pope St. Pius X died in the papacy. But even before that, Our Lady of Good Success, in the 1600’s, stated: “At the end of the 19th century and into the 20th century, various heresies will be propagated [This is around the time Pope St. Pius X begins to fight the heresy of Modernism]. As these heresies spread and dominate, the precious light of Faith will be extinguished in souls by the almost total corruption of morals … the secular clergy will leave much to be desired, because priests will become careless in their sacred duties. Lacking the divine compass, they will stray from the road traced by God for the priestly ministry, and they will become attached to wealth and riches.”
At La Salette, in 1846, Our Lady said: “The leaders of the people of God, have neglected prayer and penance … and the devil has bedimmed their intelligence. They have become wandering stars which the old devil will drag along with his tail to make them perish. God will allow the old serpent to cause divisions among those who reign in every society and in every family ... Lucifer, together with a large number of demons, will be unloosed from Hell; they will put an end to Faith little by little, even in those dedicated to God ... Several will abandon the Faith, and a great number of priests and members of religious orders will break away from the true religion; among these people there will even be bishops … Several religious institutions will lose all Faith and will lose many souls.”
At Akita, in 1973, Our Lady once again reiterates these truths: “Pray for the Pope, the bishops and priests … The work of the devil will infiltrate even into the Church in such a way that one will see cardinals opposing cardinals, bishops against bishops. The priests who venerate me will be scorned and opposed by their confreres ... The Church will be full of those who accept compromises and the demon will press many priests and consecrated souls to leave the service of the Lord. The demon will be especially implacable against souls consecrated to God. The thought of the loss of so many souls is the cause of my sadness.”
Infiltration Confirmed by Pope Paul VI
This infiltration was confirmed by Pope Paul VI (in 1972 and 1977), before and after Our Lady’s 1973 apparitions at Akita: Pope Paul VI admitted that that “from some fissure the smoke of Satan has entered the temple of God” (June 29th, 1972). And five years later, he said: “The tail of the devil is functioning in the disintegration of the Catholic world. The darkness of Satan has entered and spread throughout the Catholic Church even to its summit. Apostasy, the loss of the faith, is spreading throughout the world and into the highest levels within the Church” (Address on the Sixtieth Anniversary of the Fatima Apparitions, October 13th, 1977. Pope Paul was dead 10 months later).
Satanic Infiltration Confirmed by Rome’s Chief Exorcist
Even Father Gabriele Amorth, official chief exorcist of the Diocese of Rome (now retired), is aware of the existence of satanic cults, including the Clergy in Rome. In an excerpt of his “Memoirs” we read:
Question: “Satanists in the Vatican?”
Fr. Gabriele Amorth: “Yes, even in the Vatican there are members of Satanic cults.”
Question: “Who is involved? Is it simple priests or laymen?”
Fr. Gabriele Amorth: “There are priests, monsignors and even cardinals.”
Question: “Forgive me, Father Gabriel, but how do you know?
Fr. Gabriele Amorth: “I know from people who reported to me how they got to know this directly. It is something, “confessed” several times by the Devil, himself, under obedience during the exorcisms.”
Question: “Was the Pope informed?
Fr. Gabriele Amorth: “Of course he was informed! But he does what he can. It’s horrifying. Keep in mind also that Benedict XVI is a German Pope, who is from a nation decidedly averse to these things. In Germany, in fact, there are virtually no exorcists, yet the Pope believes. I had occasion to speak with him three times, while he was Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith. You bet he believes!...”
Question: “Is it really true that Paul VI said: that the “smoke of Satan” entered the Church?”
Fr. Gabriele Amorth: “It’s true, unfortunately, because even in the Church there are adherents to Satanic cults. Pope Paul VI reported this detail about the smoke of Satan on June 29th, 1972. Of course, this broke the ice, lifting a veil of silence and censorship that has lasted too long, but it had no practical consequences. It took someone like me – who was a nobody – to spread the alarm in order to get results.”
So, as stated by Father Amorth, Pope Benedict XVI is aware of the fact that, in the Vatican, there are cardinals, bishops and priests who are members of Satanic cults, “but he does what he can”!
Dr. Bella Dodd and the Infiltration of the Church
Dr. Bella Visono Dodd (1904 –1969) was born in Italy in 1904 and baptized Maria Assunta Isabella. She came to the USA as a young child. She did her Master’s Degree studies at Columbia University working toward a doctorate in philosophy, but then switched to the legal division. Later, she graduated from the School of Law at New York University where she received a Degree of Doctor of Jurisprudence. A schoolteacher and lawyer by profession, Bella Dodd was an organizer for the CPUSA (Communist Party of America) from 1932–1948, and from 1944 to 1948 sat on the Communist Party of America’s National Council. She also served as head of the New York State Teachers Union. After her defection from the Communist Party in 1949, she testified that one of her jobs, as a Communist agent, was to encourage young radicals to enter Roman Catholic seminaries. She returned to the Faith in 1952, thanks to Archbishop Fulton Sheen.
Bella Dodd later explained what she did while working as a Communist. Dr. Dodd served as legal counsel (attorney) for the Communists. Her book, School of Darkness (1954) reveals that Communism was perpetrated by financiers “to control the common man” and to advance world tyranny. In front of the US House Un-American Activities Committee, speaking as a former high-ranking official of the American Communist Party, Bella. Dodd testified about the plans of a Communist infiltration of Catholic Church: “In the 1930’s we put eleven hundred (1,100) men into the priesthood, in order to destroy the Church from within. The idea was for these men to be ordained, and then climb the ladder of influence and authority as Monsignors and Bishops.”
Dr. Bella Dodd made a public affidavit which was witnessed by a number of people, including Paul and Johnine Leininger. In her public affidavit, among other things, Dr. Bella 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 1,100 men in Roman Catholic seminaries”. Mrs. Johnine Leininger confirmed that other people could also verify that Dr. Bella Dodd had made these statements regarding the infiltration of Communists into Roman Catholic seminaries. Mrs. Leininger has also said that she herself knows some Roman Catholic priests who were “sleepers” ― an espionage term for individuals or groups who refrain from any subversive, espionage, and/or infiltrator functions until they become “active”. Mrs. Johnine Leininger stated that she knows of several priests who faithfully taught the Catholic religion until they became bishops or were promoted to other influential posts, and then, upon becoming “active”, immediately exhibited hostility to that same faith which they had previously professed.
Around ten years before the Second Vatican Council she stated that: “Right now they are in the highest places in the Church” — where they were working to bring about change in order to weaken the Church’s effectiveness against Communism. She also said that these changes would be so drastic that “you will not recognize the Catholic Church.”
Dr. Bella Dodd told her friend, Dr. Alice von Hildebrand, the Catholic theologian, 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]” (Christian Order magazine, “The Church in Crisis”). Dr. Alice von Hildebrand confirmed that Dr. Bella Dodd had publicly stated the same things, to which she attested in her public affidavit.
Truth Stranger Than Fiction
The world laughs at Catholic conspiracy theories. Catholics laugh at Catholic conspiracy theories. Those who hold to conspiracy theories are looked upon as lunatics! It is actually those who think that there is no conspiracy, who are the real lunatics. From the very beginning of time conspiracy has been around. Satan the ultimate conspirator, conspired against Adam and Eve. The brothers of Joseph (of colorful coat fame) conspired to kill him. Saul conspired to kill David. David conspired to kill his general Urias. The Pharisees conspired to kill Jesus. This is not even the tip of the iceberg.
Add to this the clear statements of Our Lord that family members will conspire against other family members and betray them: “And the brother shall betray his brother unto death, and the father his son; and children shall rise up against the parents, and shall work their death” (Mark 13:12). While Our Lady of Akita states: “The work of the devil will infiltrate even into the Church in such a way that one will see cardinals opposing cardinals, bishops against bishops.” Is Our Lord a lunatic? Is Our Lady a lunatic? Of course not, but the best way to deflect attention is to attack and discredit anyone who points out what is going and ridicule them to ‘high-heaven’.
