The following Historical Quotes will help you
to better understand the various Historical Facts which follow.

“Truth knows no distinction of persons.  Therefore, he who speaks [verbally; in writing] the Truth is invincible, dispute with whom he may.” (Saint Thomas Aquinas, O.P., [b. 1225 A.D. in Rocca Secca, Naples, Italy - d. Wednesday, March 7, 1274 A.D., in Fossa Nuova, Italy], Doctor of the Church, Commentary on Job, Chapter 13, Lesson 2; emphasis added.)

“If people are scandalized at the Truth, it is better to allow the birth of scandal, than to abandon the Truth.” (Pope Saint Gregory I, the Great [Friday, September 3, 590 - Monday, March 12, 604], Homily on Ezechiel, 7; cited by Saint Thomas Aquinas, O.P., “Summa Theologica”, Part II-II, Question 43, Article 7.)


 
“Not only does he betray the Truth who transgresses against the Truth by openly speaking falsehood and not the Truth, but he also betrays it who does not openly speak the Truth, which must be openly proclaimed, or does not boldly defend it when it must be boldly defended.”  (Patriarch Saint John Chrysostom [b. Antioch, c. 347 A.D. - d. at Commana in Pontus on Friday, September 14, 407 A.D.], Patriarch of Constantinople [Thursday, February 26, 398 A.D. - Thursday, June 24, 404 A.D.], exiled from his See the 2nd time on Thursday, June 24, 404 A.D., Father and Doctor of the Catholic Church, Cause 11, Question 3, Nolite.)

 
Knowledge
 
It is of the greatest importance that in order to gain assured knowledge of things, to rely on exact acquaintance with facts, rather than on the uncertain testimony of public rumor; and then what we have proved for certain we may proclaim without hesitation. (Saint Bernard of Clairvaux  [b. Castle Fontaines, near Dijon, France in 1090 A.D. - d. at Clairvaux, France on Friday, August 21, 1153 A.D.], Abbot of Clairvaux, Doctor of the Church, Doctor of the Church, Oracle of the 12th Century, Mellifluous [soothing sound] Doctor, Probable Author of the very popular Memorare Prayer; Letters)..




“Truth cannot be Truth's contrary.”  (Saint Thomas Aquinas. O.P., Summa Contra Gentiles, IV,8.)


..

Am I then become your enemy,
because I tell you the Truth?
(Saint Paul the Apostle,
Epistle to the Galatians 4:16.)


 

“If people are scandalized at the Truth,
it is better to allow the birth of scandal,
than to abandon the Truth”.
 
(Pope Saint Gregory I, the Great, [Friday, September 3, 590 - Monday, March 12, 604], Homily on Ezechiel, 7; cited by Saint Thomas Aquinas, O.P., Summa Theologica, Part II-II, Question 43, Article 7.)

Do not heed by whom a thing is said, but rather what is said.

(Saint Thomas Aquinas, O.P., Letter to Brother John)

“Anyone who conceals the Truth, for fear of some authority calls down the wrath of God upon himself, because he fears men more than God...  Both are guilty: he who conceals the Truth and he who speaks falsehood, because the former does not wish to make the Truth known and the latter desires not to refute it.”  (Bishop Saint Augustine, Ad Casulanus, Cause 11, Question 3, Quisquis.)

“Since, therefore, the sanctification of man is in the power of God Who sanctifies, it is not for man to decide what things should be used for his sanctification, but this should be determined by Divine institution.” (Saint Thomas Aquinas, O.P., Summa Theologica, Part III, Question 60, Article 5, Body.)

Conerning the Holy Sacrifice of the Traditional Catholic Mass
..

“Our Lord used Determinate Words in Consecrating the Sacrament of the Eucharist.”  (Saint Thomas Aquinas, O.P., Summa Theologica, Part III, Question 60, Article 7.)

“... those things that are essential to the Sacrament are instituted by Christ Himself, Who is God and man.  And though they are not all handed down by the Scriptures, yet the Church holds them from the intimate Tradition of the Apostles [i.e. Genuine Apostolic Tradition], according to the saying of the Apostle (1 Cor. 11:34):  `The rest I will set in order when I come.’”  (Saint Thomas Aquinas, O.P., Summa Theologica, Part III, Question 64, Article 2, Reply to Objection 1.)

“...if the [Double] Consecration was not performed then [i.e. in the time of the Apostles] by these words, neither would it be now.”  (Saint Thomas Aquinas, O.P., Summa Theologica, Part III, Question 78, Article 1, Reply to Objection 1.)

“...the Proper Form exists only in its Proper Matter....”  (Saint Thomas Aquinas, O.P., Summa Theologica, Part III, Question 75, Article 6.)

“As stated above (A. 6, ad 2), in the Sacraments the words are as the Form and sensible things are as the Matter.  Now in all things composed of Matter and Form, the determining principle is on the part of the Form, which is as it were the end and terminus of the Matter.  Consequently, for the being of a thing the need of a Determinate Form is prior to the need of Determinate Matter; for Determinate Matter is needed that it may be adapted to the Determinate Form.  Since, therefore, in the Sacraments Determinate sensible things are required which are as the Sacramental Natter, much more is there need in them of a Determinate form of Words.”  (Saint Thomas Aquinas, O.P., Summa Theologica, Part III, Question 60, Article 7.)

Historically:  The "Law of Secrecy", a.k.a. the Disciplina Arcani - the "Discipline of the Secret," was an absolute necessity in the early days of the Catholic Church.

This was the primary way in which the Catholic Church defended herself from her enemies.  During the first three Centuries A.D., the Catholic Church and her members, both Clergy and Laity, were frequently persecuted.  Martyrdom was the usual result of such bloody Satanic persecutions.  In this age of bloody persecutions and attacks from a variety of anti-Catholics, it was necessary for the Catholic Church to conceal the Deposit of Faith, especially her Doctrines on the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass - which was divided into two parts - The Mass of the Catechumens (at the conclusion of which the Catechumens were dismissed) and The Mass of the Faithful (who remained for the Canon of the Mass which, of course, contains the Transubstantiation during the Double Consecration).

This fact is attested to by various Church Historians and others and even as late as the 13th Century the Angelic Doctor refers to it:

“The Evangelists did not intend to hand down the Forms of the Sacraments, which in the primitive Church had to be kept concealed, as Dionysius observes at the close of his book on the Ecclesiastical Hierarchy”  (Saint Thomas Aquinas, O.P., Summa Theologica, Part III, Question 78, Article 3, Reply to Objection 9.)
Here it seems that not only does Saint Thomas have in mind the actual FORM of words for each Sacrament, but also “form” in the sense of the entire liturgical “shape” or “form” of each Sacrament; in others words, what was the equivalent in the Primitive Church of the modern Ritual and also the Missal).


Pope Saint Clement I

“These things therefore being manifest to us, and since we look into the depths of the divine knowledge, it behoves us to do all things in [their proper] order, which the Lord has commanded us to perform at stated times. He [Christ] has enjoined Offerings [to be presented to Him] and Service [the Mass] to be performed [Offered to Him], and that not thoughtlessly or irregularly, but at the appointed times and hours....  Where and by whom He [Christ] desires these things to be done, He Himself [Christ] has fixed by His own supreme will, in order that all things being piously done [Mass Offered] according to His good pleasure, may be acceptable unto Him.... For his own peculiar services [of the Episcopacy] are assigned to the High Priest [Bishop], and their own proper place is prescribed to the Priests, and their own special ministrations devolve on the Levites [Deacons]. The Layman is bound by the laws that pertain to Laymen.”  (Pope Saint Clement I, a.k.a. Bishop Clement of Rome [c. 88 A.D. - c. 97 A.D.]. First Epistle to the Corinthians, Chapter 40, Let Us Preserve in the Church the Order Appointed by God.)

Introduction To Dogmatic Documents, Etc.

Some of the following historical data is from various authentic documents such as Dogmatic Doctrinal Councils, various Papal and other Documents.

Also included are various writings of certain credible witnesses, quotes from certain books, and several authentic Prophecies from various Private Revelatiosn, etc.  Most of the following Prophecies have actually been fulfilled in testimony of their authenticity.


Private Revelation

“As regards the guidance of human acts, the prophetic revelation varied not according to the course of time, but according as circumstances required, because as it is written (Proverbs 29:18), ‘When prophecy shall fail, the people shall be scattered abroad.’  Wherefore at all times men were Divinely instructed about what they were to do, according as it was expedient for the Spiritual welfare of the Elect.”  (Saint Thomas Aquinas, O.P., [b. 1225 A.D. in Rocca Secca, Naples, Italy - d. Wednesday, March 7, 1274 A.D. in Fossa Nuova, Italy], Doctor of the Church, Summa Theologica, Part II-II, Question 174, Article 6, Body; emphasis added).

“The prophets who foretold the coming of Christ could not continue further than John, who, with his finger, pointed to Christ actually present. Nevertheless as [Saint] Jerome says on this passage, ‘This does not mean that there were no more Prophets after John. For we read in the Acts of the Apostles that Agabus and the four maidens, Daughters of Philip, prophesied.’ John, too, wrote a prophetic book about the end of the Church; and at all times there have not been lacking persons having the Spirit of Prophecy, not indeed for the declaration of any new Doctrine of Faith, but for the direction of human acts. Thus Augustine says (De Civ. Dei [City of God] v, 26) that ‘the Emperor Theodosius sent to John who dwelt in the Egyptian desert, and whom he knew by his ever-increasing fame to be endowed with the prophetic spirit: and from him he received a message assuring him of victory’.” (Saint Thomas Aquinas, O.P., Summa Theologica, Part II-II, Question 174, Article 6, Reply to Objection 3; emphasis added.)

Therefore, Private Revelations are not to be despised and/or ignored.  Hence, the historical fact that most of the Private Revelations found below have already been fulfilled is a testimony to their original authenticity, while We prayerful await the fulfillment of the other Prophecies found below in those respective Private Revelations.


Part Two:  The Transitional Church
Part Catholic and Part Non-Catholic
The Pontificate of Pope Pius XII
Introduction to Pope Pius XII


Pope Pius XII was the Pope of the Roman Catholic Church during a most difficult time period both during and after WWII when the anti-Catholic Infiltrators were trying to destroy the Church from within who also were apparently aware of his strong anti-Communist position.

As a result, a number of attempts were made to assassinate Pope Pius XII.  Some of these attempts caused one or more physical problems for him, as exampled by his long illnesses, such as a number of severe problems with hic-ups.

The Roman Catholic Church reported that on the morning of Thursday, December 2, 1954, while suffering a serious illness, Pius XII saw “the sweet person of Jesus Christ at his bedside” while he was reciting the prayer, “Anima Christi”.

However, according to some inside Vatican sources, they each claim, on condition of anonymity, this serious illness was caused by his having been poisoned and that Christ Himself brought the dead Pope Pius XII back to life, after which Pope Pius XII began to recite the “Anima Christi” when the Pope then saw Jesus Christ.

We remember radio news broadcasts about them many times, not to mention how this courageous Pope even underwent cellular rejuvenation treatments which led to hallucinations, not to mention many other problems.

On condition of anonymity, We were told, that, according to certain people who physically worked inside the Vatican, and who were known as loyal Roman Catholics, that various methods were used by certain anti-Catholic infiltrators who tried to take over the Papacy and issue certain questionable documents in the name of the Pope whom they were trying to poison.

However, there are also a number of other cases where yet a totally different reason for the Non-Catholic designation applies, primarily due to the personal professional philosophy, and modus operandi, of the.Professional Vatican Diplomatic Peace mentality of Pope Pius XII, the Pope of Peace, as explained below...

P-01.   October - November, 1936.


“I'm obsessed with the Secrets of the Virgin [Our Lady of Fatima] to the little Lucia of Fatima.  This persistence of the Good Lady [the Blessed Virgin Mary] in the face of  the danger that threatens the Church is a Divine warning against the suicide of the alteration of the Faith in Her Liturgy, Her Theology, and Her Soul.” (Cardinal Pacelli, later Pope Pius XII, To his trusted friend, Count Enrico Pietro Galéazzi, October - November 1936; emphasis added.)


Cardinal Eugenio Maria Giuseppe Giovanni Pacelli (the future Pope Pius XII) visited the United States for two weeks between  October and November 1936 as the Cardinal Secretary of State and Camerlengo of the Holy Roman Catholic Church. At that time, Cardinal Pacelli was the highest ranking Catholic Clergy to ever  visit the United States of America. Although he did not visit the U.S. as Pope, he was the first Pope who visited the U.S. at any time during his lifetime.


Pope Pius XII with his Trusted Personal Friend, Enrico Galeazzi

Historically, it was customary for Cardinal Pacelli to take an annual vacation.  But, in 1936, at the last minute, he changed his plans from taking his vacation in Switzerland, to taking an unofficial trip to the United States.  This is why, according to The New York Times, no secretaries or other Vatican officials accompanied Cardinal Pacelli, with the exception of Enrico Galeazzi, his so-called gentleman-in-waiting, who was also a Vatican City architect. The New York Times failed to report that Sister Pascalina Lehnert, his personal  secretary and confidant, since the time of his nunciature to Germany, was the only other person who accompanied Cardinal Pacelli.  The point is that at some time during this trip, apparently Cardinal Pacelli made the above statement about the Secrets of the Virgin [Our Lady of Fatima] to the little Lucia of Fatima to Enrico Galeazzi, a trusted personal friend.

N.B.:  Historically, Sister Lucia did not write down the Third Secret of Fatima until 1944, and it was not at the Vatican until 1957.

So how did Cardinal Paeelli, the future Pope Pius XII, know at least some, or maybe all, of the contents of the.Third Secret of Fatima.in 1936, at least eight years earlier?  Did Cardinal Pacelli have a secret meeting with Sister Lucia before 1936?

Venerable Psalter of Saint Jerome Illegally Replaced in 1944


P-02.   1944

There were a number of anti-Catholic, Liturgical "reforms", in the 1940’s and 1950’s!

Here is one example:

Sometime between 1939 and 1942, Pope Pius XII ordered the Latin Vulgate Psalter of Saint Jerome thrown out and replaced by a different Latin translation, supposedly from the "original" Hebrew text - except that, it is understood by scholars, that this "original" Hebrew text was not as ancient as the "original" Hebrew text to which Saint Jerome had access!  Deliberate deception on the part of Pius XII, or just ignorance by a non-Bible Scholar?  Pius XII admitted he ordered this done in two documents, although Pius XII never cited the actual document in which the order itself was given.  Today some scholars take the position that such a document never existed.

1944

Some, and perhaps all, liturgical books, especially the Missal, were published with the questionable new Latin translation of the Psalter.

Historically, beginning with the Missale Romanum in 1944, a newly translated Psalter, supposedly based on the ancient Hebrew original, replaced the ancient and hallowed Psalter of Saint Jerome!  This “trial balloon”, which culminated with the Novus Ordo Missæ, was launched by the non-Biblical Scholar, Pope Pius XII [b.  Friday, March 3, 1876 - d. at the Vatican on Thursday, October 9, 1958], sometime in 1943 when he was 67 years old - not an age associated with senility.

How did this happen?


Augustin Cardinal Bea, S.J.
[b. at Riedböhringen, Germany on Saturday, May 28, 1881 -
d. at Rome, Italy on Saturday, November 16, 1968]
“Super-Ecumenist” and Zionist Infiltrator

Father Augustin Bea, S.J., the future Augustin Cardinal Bea, S.J. [b. at Riedböhringen, Germany on Saturday, May 28, 1881 - d. at Rome, Italy on Saturday, November 16, 1968], the “super-ecumenist” and Zionist Infiltrator, was the Confessor of Pope Pius XII, Eugenio Pacelli [Thursday, March 2, 1939 - Thursday, October 9, 1958].

This becomes more clear when one sees how this Zionist Infiltrator into the Roman Catholic Church was involved with Pius XII’s first liturgical reform, the new liturgical translation of the Psalms, which replaced that of Saint Jerome’s Latin Vulgate, so disliked by the Protestants because the Vulgate was the official translation of the Holy Scriptures in the Roman Catholic Church, and which had been declared to be authentic by the Nineteenth Ścumenical Council, the Infallible Dogmatic Roman Catholic Council of Trent - [Thursday, December 13, 1545 A.D. - Wednesday, December 4, 1563 A.D.].

“6. You are surely well aware that this Apostolic See has always made careful provision for the schooling of the people committed to its charge in the correct spirit and practice of the liturgy; and that it has been no less careful to insist that the sacred rites should be performed with due external dignity. In this connection We ourselves, in the course of our traditional address to the Lenten preachers of this gracious city of Rome in 1943, urged them warmly to exhort their respective hearers to more faithful participation in the eucharistic sacrifice. Only a short while previously, with the design of rendering the prayers of the liturgy more correctly understood and their truth and unction more easy to perceive, We arranged to have the Book of Psalms, which forms such an important part of these prayers in the Catholic Church, translated again into Latin from their original text. [8]  Footnote # 8.  Cf. Apostolic Letter (Motu Proprio) In Cotidianis Precibus, Saturday, March 24, 1945 (AAS 37, 1945; pp. 65-67).”  (Roman Catholic Pope Pius XII, Eugenio Pacelli [Thursday, March 2, 1939 - Thursday, October 9, 1958], Encyclical, Mediator Dei, On the Sacred Liturgy, Thursday, November 20, 1947, ¶ 6.)
But this was in contradiction to the Council of Trent:
The sacred and holy, ecumenical, and general Synod of Trent, – lawfully assembled in the Holy Ghost, the Same three legates of the Apostolic Sec presiding therein, – keeping this always in view, that, errors being removed, the purity itself of the Gospel be preserved in the Church; which (Gospel), before promised through the Prophets in the Holy Scriptures, our Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of God, first promulgated with His own mouth, and then commanded to be preached by His Apostles to every creature, as the fountain of all, both saving truth, and moral discipline; and seeing clearly that this truth and discipline are contained in the written books, and the unwritten Traditions which, received by the Apostles from the mouth of Christ himself, or from the Apostles themselves, the Holy Ghost dictating, have come down even unto us, transmitted as it were from hand to hand; (the Synod) following the examples of the orthodox Fathers, receives and venerates with an equal affection of piety, and reverence, all the books both of the Old and of the New Testament  –  seeing that one God is the author of both  –  as also the said Traditions, as well those appertaining to Faith as to morals, as having been dictated, either by Christ's own word of mouth, or by the Holy Ghost, and preserved in the Catholic Church by a continuous succession. And it has thought it meet [proper] that a list of the Sacred Books be inserted in this Decree, lest a doubt may arise in any one’s mind, which are the Books that are received by this Synod...

They are as set down here below:

of the Old Testament: the five books of Moses, to wit, Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, Deuteronomy; Josue, Judges, Ruth, four books of Kings, two of Paralipomenon, the first book of Esdras, and the second which is entitled Nehemias; Tobias, Judith, Esther, Job, the Davidical Psalter, consisting of a hundred and fifty psalms....
But if anyone receive not, as Sacred and Canonical, the said Books entire with all their parts, as they have been used to be read in the Catholic Church, and as they are contained in the old Latin Vulgate Edition [of Saint Jerome]; and knowingly and deliberately contemn the Traditions aforesaid; let him be anathema....” (Infallible Roman Catholic Pope Paul III [Saturday, October 13, 1534 - Thursday, November 10, 1549] and the Infallible Dogmatic Roman Catholic Council of Trent, Session Four, Monday, April 8, 1546, Decree De Canonicis Scripturis.)
What is anathema?
Anathema then appears as the more solemn form of pronouncing or declaring excommunication.” (Rev. P. Chas. Augustine, O.S.B., D.D., A Commentary on the New Code of Canon Law, Volume 8, Canons 2255 & 2256, p. 170.)
Anathema:  A thing or person struck by God’s malediction and intended for ruin.  Cf. I Cor. 12:13; Rom. 9:3; Gal. l:8-9.  Anathema, in actual Church discipline, is the term used for ipso facto [i.e. this is an automatic] excommunication incurred by those denying a solemnly defined truth, as is concluded principally from the Dogmatic Canons of the Council of Trent and the Vatican Council, (i.e. Vatican 1).”  (Parente, Piolanti, Garofalo, Dictionary of Dogmatic Theology, “Anathema”.)
What had Pope Pius XII done?
We arranged to have the Book of Psalms, which forms such an important part of these prayers in the Catholic Church, translated again into Latin from their original [i.e. Hebrew] text.  [8]  Footnote # 8.  Cf. Apostolic Letter (Motu Proprio) In Cotidianis Precibus, Saturday, March 24, 1945 (AAS 37, 1945; pp. 65-67).”  (Roman Catholic Pope Pius XII, Eugenio Pacelli [Thursday, March 2, 1939 - Thursday, October 9, 1958], Encyclical, Mediator Dei, On the Sacred Liturgy, Thursday, November 20, 1947, ¶ 6.  Is this a case of ignorance by Pope Pius XII because he was obviously NOT a Bible Scholar and he was also apparently NOT familiar with the Council of Trent?)

Concerning Some False Opinions
Threatening to Undermine
The Foundations of Catholic Doctrine

40. Truly, we are aware that the majority of Catholic doctors, the fruit of whose studies is being gathered in universities, in seminaries and in the colleges of religious, are far removed from those errors which today, whether through a desire of novelty or through a certain immoderate zeal for the apostolate, are being spread either openly or covertly. But we know also that such new opinions can entice the incautious; and therefore we prefer to withstand the very beginnings rather than to administer the medicine after the disease has grown inveterate.

41. For this reason, after mature reflection and consideration before God, that We may not be wanting in Our sacred duty, We charge the Bishops and the Superiors General of Religious Orders, binding them most seriously in conscience, to take most diligent care that such opinions be not advanced in schools, in conferences or in writings of any kind, and that they be NOT taught in any manner whatsoever to the clergy or the faithful.

42. Let the teachers in ecclesiastical institutions be aware that they cannot with tranquil conscience exercise the office of teaching entrusted to them, unless in the instruction of their students they religiously accept and exactly observe the norms which We have ordained. That due reverence and submission which in their unceasing labor they must profess towards the Teaching Authority of the Church, let them instill also into the minds and hearts of their students.

43. Let them strive with every force and effort to further the progress of the sciences which they teach; but let them also be careful not to transgress the limits which We have established for the protection of the truth of Catholic faith and doctrine. With regard to new questions, which modern culture and progress have brought to the foreground, let them engage in most careful research, but with the necessary prudence and caution; finally, let them not think, indulging in a false irenism, that the dissident and erring can happily be brought back to the bosom of the Church, if the whole truth found in the Church is not sincerely taught to all without corruption or diminution.

Brief Commentary

How effective was Pope Pius XII’s Encyclical Humani Generis at stopping the NEW Erroneous Philosophy as well as what he himself called the NEW Theology which must be in constant transformation  (Pope Pius XII, L'Osservatore Romano, December 19, 1946)?

Here is the observation of one Bishop:

Pope Pius XII’s Encyclical Humani Generis had.... a devastating effect on the work of a number of pre-conciliar theologians.... theologians and biblical scholars, who had been under a cloud for years, surfaced as periti [theological experts who advised the Bishops] at Vatican II.  (Bishop Aloysius Wycislo [b. at Chicago, Illinois in 1908 - d. in 2005] Vatican Two Revisited; Reflections by One who was there, paperback edition published by Alba House on October, 1987.)
Wycislo specifically mentions that Hans Kung, Karl Rahner, John Courtney Murray, Yves Congar, Edward Schillebeeckx, and Henri De Lubac as theologians who had been under suspicion of heresy and who were yet admitted as periti, i.e. theological experts, to Synod Vatican 2 - obviously with the blessings of 2nd John 23rd!

In other words, the devastating effect was only temporary.

Why?

Because a number of pre-conciliar theologians.... theologians and biblical scholars, who had been under a cloud for years, surfaced as periti [theological experts who advised the Bishops] at Vatican II.

How did this happen?

In 1912:

“The appointment of professor Roncalli to the chair of Ecclesiastical History at the Roman Seminary was vetoed in 1912, having been indicated of ‘dubious orthodoxy’.”
Later, when Father Angelo Giuseppe Roncalli, the future 2nd Pope John 23rd, was a Seminary Professor, the Holy Office had maintained a dossier on him for many, many years.  This file went back to 1925, when he was suddenly removed as a Lateran Seminary professor in mid-semester.  This file included the statement that Father Roncalli was suspected of ModernismRoncalli was then shipped off to Bulgaria. This transfer to Bulgaria began his diplomatic career.

Modernism, of course, is a heresy, refuted and condemned by Pope Saint Pius X.

So, in other words, the file was really saying that Father Roncalli was suspected of being a Modernist Heretic!  Of course, Pope Saint Pius X had also issued an automatic excommunication of all heretics, most especially of Modernists Heretics!

Of particular concern to Rome was Roncalli's continuing close association with the defrocked priest Ernesto Buonaiuti [b. at Rome, Italy on April 24, 1881 - d. at Rome, Italy on April 20, 1946].  (Lawrence Elliott, I Will Be Called John, 1973, pp. 90-92.).

Ernesto Buonaiuti was excommunicated for the Heresy of Modernism on January 25, 1925.

This formal Excommunication of Ernesto Buonaiuti for the Heresy of Modernism was repeated several times because in his works he had defended the Heresy of Modernism - in particular his Il programma dei modernisti (The Modernists' Program) of 1908, and his Lettere di un prete modernista (Letters from a Modernist Priest), also of 1908.

Upon becoming 2nd Pope John 23rd, Pope Roncalli was asked if he would continue the policies of his predecessor, Pope Pius XII, Eugenio Pacelli [Thursday, March 2, 1939 - Thursday, October 9, 1958].  A Vatican insider claims that Pope Roncallianswered:

“Think of what Pius XII would do and I will do the opposite”!
Obviously, this was most certainly the opposite of what Pope Pius XII would have done!

But then Pope Pius XII was NOT suspected of being an automatically excommunicated Modernists Heretic as was Pope Roncalli!

In addition, Pope Roncalli had obviously self-excommunicated himself because of his violation of the Coronation Oath of the Pope-Elect for permitting those suspected of Heresy to become periti at Vatican 2.

Finally, Pope Roncalli is also strongly suspected of not even being a Pope because of the Infallible Papal Bulla of Pope Paul IV!

We did not mention above the blatant DISOBEDIENCE to the Blessed Virgin Mary of Pope Roncalli for his Satanic refusal to release the full and exact contents of the Third Secret of Fatima that he was under obligation to do in 1960, instead of consigning the Third Secret to the proverbial black hole of the Vatican archives where it could very easily have become lost forever because one Vatican insider claims that only ONE person knew where it was!

Perhaps God was merciful to Pope Roncalli by giving him the opportunity to shut down Synod Vatican 2?

This is probably why, on his death-bed, Pope Roncalli is alleged to have shouted:


Stop the Council! Stop the Council!

(2nd Pope John 23rd, Pope Roncalli, on his deathbed.  Quoted in Kevin Haney, “The Stormy History of General Councils,” Latin Mass magazine, Spring 1995, attributed to Jean Guitton [b. at Saint-Étienne, Loire, in East-Central France on Sunday, August 18, 1901 - d. at Paris, France on Sunday, March 21, 1999]. The Council which 2nd Pope John 23rd, Pope Roncalli wanted stopped was Vatican 2.
But this was much too little and way too late!

Anyway, which peritus or Council Father of V-2 would have paid any attention to an almost dead Pope Roncalli?!

Wednesday, November 22, 1950.  Cardinal Lienart, president of the Cardinals and Archbishops of France, petitioned the Vatican to permit the celebration of the Easter Vigil at night rather than in the morning for “pastoral reasons”. The German Bishops also petition the Holy See.

Cardinal Lienart got more than he bargained for. Under the guise of a simple change of the time, a substantially rewritten rite was slipped in, even as later the NOR (Novus Ordo Rite), a.k.a. the Novus Ordo Missæ, was imposed in the name of the "vernacular", while ignoring the proverbial "elephant in the room" - the actual fact that only thirty percent of the text of the Ancient Roman Rite of the Catholic ancient Mass, a.k.a. the "Old Mass in Latin", remained!

Pius XII’s Disastrous
Experimental Easter Vigil of 1950

Under the guise of a simple change of the time, a substantially rewritten rite was slipped in which included:

1. The principle of optional rites used experimentally was introduced.

2. For the first time, the vernacular was actually introduced into the liturgy itself.  This act was an imitation of the first step that was taken to change the Ancient Roman Rite of the Catholic Mass by the first Protestant Archbishop of Canterbury in 1548 A.D. - Thomas Cranmer [b. Nottinghamshire, England in 1489 A.D. - d. burnt at the stake in Oxford, England in 1556 A.D.], the ex-Catholic Archbishop of Canterbury.

3. The rubric directing the celebrant to “sit and listen” (sedentes auscultant) to the lessons rather than reading them at the altar is introduced for the first time and is immediately interpreted as justifying the exclusive use of the vernacular in this part of the liturgy.

Tuesday, November 2, 1954

Tuesday, November 2, 1954.  Pius XII, in an allocution, warns priests not to change anything in the liturgy on their own authority. (AAS 45, 1954; page 670).

WHY was it necessary for Pius XII to give this warning way back in 1954?!!!  The self-evident reason is simply because a growing number of priests were already making their own changes to the liturgy, most especially to the Missale Romanum - the Missal used for Offering the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass!!!   With this speech, Pius XII acknowledges that liturgical anarchy is going full speed ahead!  Apparently Pius XII did not issue any censures against those who continued to make changes, e.g. anathema?  This is the same tactic he used in Mediator Dei - Pius XII bemoaned a list of things he considered to be "straying from the straight path", but Pius XII did NOT issue any censures to stop these practices - it was as if he gave his approval to the clergy to continue to do these things!  Therefore, Pius XII was an obvious anti-Catholic Infiltrator!

What these practices were Pius XII enumerated in ¶ 62 as follows:

“.. it is neither wise nor laudable to reduce everything to antiquity by every possible device. Thus, to cite some instances, one would be straying from the straight path were he to:
wish the altar restored to its primitive tableform;

were he to want black excluded as a color for the liturgical vestments;

were he to forbid the use of sacred images and statues in Churches;

were he to order the crucifix so designed that the divine Redeemer's body shows no trace of His cruel sufferings...”

Pandora's box had been opened with the Experimental Easter Vigil of 1950 which, under the guise of a simple change of the time, not only introduced a substantially rewritten rite, but also, by this legal PRECEDENT, established the PRINCIPLE of using optional rites - apparently made up by anyone - which supposedly were only to be used experimentally!  Obviously, what was "optionally experimental" became the basis and the reason to change anything and everything as many times as the clergy so desired without the fear of any censures, e.g. anathema!  So this "warning" is a deceptive sham because Pius XII had already deliberately set the legal precedent that the clergy could do anything they wanted to do with any fears of being censured, e.g. excommunicated, because this is the SAME thing he did in Mediator Dei as shown above!

So called “undesirable accretions” were removed from the Sacred Liturgy “in the light of modern scholarship,” to wit:

1. The ancient ranks of semi-double and simple feasts were abolished.

2.   Most vigils of feast days were suppressed, leaving the celebration of Vigils, e.g. for All Saints, the Apostles, Our Lady, etc., only “a shadow” of their former glory.

3. The number of octaves was reduced from fifteen to three. Some of the suppressed octaves went back to the Seventh Century!

4. For the first time a distinction between the “public” and “private” recitation of the Divine Office was introduced, even though tradition teaches us that the Office is, by its very nature, a public prayer. This foreshadowed the Novus Ordo distinction between Masses with and without people.

5. The “Our Fathers” recited in the Divine Office were reduced from sixteen to five, and the ten Hail Marys and three Creeds were entirely omitted, as were certain other prayers before and after the Divine Office.

6. The penitential ferial prayers were abolished with two minor exceptions.

7. The Suffrage of the Saints and the Commemoration of the Cross were abolished, and the beautiful Athanasian Creed, which dates from the eighth century, was said but once a year.

8. The additional Collects said at Mass during the different seasons of the year, e.g. those of Our Lady, those Against the Persecutors of the Church, etc., were abolished.

9. The Proper Last Gospel (the beginning of the Gospel of Saint John) was abolished.  This was a red flag that indicated Dualist Heretics were offering Mass, whether Manicheans, Cathars, Patarines, Albigensians, etc.!

The drastic revamping of most of the liturgy of the sacred week of the Liturgy was unjustifiable.  (AAS 47, 1955; pp. 838-847; The Sacred Congregation of Rites - Canon Law Digest 4:49 ff).

Major Issues

The Revised Holy Week of 1955 was a kind of trial balloon for the Novus Ordo Missæ. Some of its issues included the following:

In General

1. Everything must be short and simple.

2. Primary rites are to be performed by the Priest with his back to the Altar, facing the people.  These included: the Blessing of Palms, the final prayer of the Palm Sunday Procession, the Holy Saturday Blessing of the Baptismal Water, etc.

3. The Prayers at the Foot of the Altar and the Last Gospel are suppressed for the first time.

4. Everyone, i.e. the Priest and the Laity, must recite together the “Our Father” On Good Friday.

Palm Sunday

The Palm Sunday Liturgy lost its ancient Rite of Blessing. The New Palm Sunday Liturgy incorporated various prayers of the Mass, and thus, by concomitance, associated the palm - which is a Sacramental, with the Holy Eucharist - which is a Sacrament.

The seven collects were reduced to one, the Fore-Mass of the Blessing entirely disappeared, as did the ceremony of the Gloria Laus at the door of the Church. The Passion account was shortened, omitting the Anointing at Bethany and the Last Supper.

The Triduum
The whole of the balance of the Triduum Sacrum, the last three days of Holy Week, was upset. The beautiful Office of Tenebræ practically disappeared, as did the popular devotion of the Tre Ore.
Holy Thursday
The Holy Thursday Liturgy of the morning was moved to the evening.  This clearly disobeyed the Papal Bull AD CUIUS NOTITIAM, of Tuesday, March 29, 1566 A.D., by Saint Pius V, Antonio-Michele Ghislieri [Friday, January 7, 1566 - Monday, May 1, 1572] which forbade the celebration of Holy Saturday and other solemnities, e.g. Holy Thursday, in the evening, or towards the time of sunset.

Good Friday

The Good Friday Liturgy was moved to the afternoon.  The ancient Mass of the Presanctified on Good Friday was abolished and replaced with a simple Communion Service for the people.  Contrary to immemorial custom, a genuflection was prescribed at the prayer for the perfidious Jews!  Obviously the work of the Zionist Jew Infiltrator, Cardinal Bea?!

Holy Saturday Vigil

The Holy Saturday Vigil was entirely changed, with the Prophecies reduced from twelve to four.


A Candle Lit from the New Fire
After the New Fire had first been Blessed
In the Traditional [unchanged] Holy Week Liturgy

There was also a drastic modification of the Traditional Rite of the Blessing of the New Fire and the Paschal Candle.


Procession with the Triple Candelabra
In the Traditional [unchanged] Holy Week Liturgy

For example, the triple candelabra, with its 3 candles, was abolished.

The Paschal Candle is cut.

Incense nails replaced the grains of incense.


Incense NAILS Pounded into the Paschal Candle
This Symbolizes the Crucifixion
- by Incense NAILS -
of the Risen Christ

The incense nails - yes, they are NAILS with incense supposedly being in the waxed nail head with each nail head being made to represent the heads of the nails that were used to Crucify Christ on the Cross! - are “nailed” into the Paschal candle (the Risen Christ is thus NAILED/CRUCIFIED again - symbolically!)

Obviously the work of the Zionist Jew Infiltrator, Cardinal Bea?!

While some Catholics, especially those who are faithful to the authentic Apostolic Tradition, may be shocked, others may not be all that surprised, to learn that these Christ-hating Zionist Infiltrators symbolically “Crucify the Risen Christ” by having nails with incense in their heads “pounded” into the Pascal Candle which is the symbol of the Risen Christ, victorious over death and over the perfidious Zionist Jews!
 

But, in the unchangeable Missale Romanum, the rubrics indicate five grains of incense (not nails) be placed on (not in) the Paschal Candle to indicate the five wounds in the Sacred Body of Christ risen from the grave, as the Gospel testifies (John 20:27-29).

They are placed as a Greek + Cross as in the diagram to the right.

But the Zionist Jew Infiltrators have left their anti-Christ “mark” of the Beast on The Revised Holy Week of 1955 by rubrics that require the following configuration as shown in the diagram to the left.  Check the 1955 Holy Week Ritual for yourself!

The revised rubrics of 1955 require:

1) that the Pascal Candle be CUT - thus symbolically CUTTING the risen Sacred Body of Christ - albeit in the form of a Cross;

2) that the Pascal Candle be CUT - thus symbolically not only CUTTING the risen Sacred Body of Christ, but also mocking Christ in their Satanic hatred of disbelief - in the symbolic characters of the Greek A (representing alpha) and the Greek omega character (representing omega), being direct references to Christ: “I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, saith the Lord God, Who is, and Who was, and Who is to come, the Almighty (Apocalypse 1:8).

It should be easy to see how this strange pattern in placing the NAILS of incense easily makes the Zionist Star of David! 

Draw a line from 5-6-4-5.

Draw a different line from 7-8-1-7.

In case you need help, here is how it looks with the lines drawn in for you in the diagram to the left. 

By the way, the 3 and 2 are apparently used to confuse the mind in an attempt to hide the obvious Zionist Star of David!

The Holy Saturday Liturgy was also moved from the morning to the evening. This clearly disobeyed the Papal Bull AD CUIUS NOTITIAM, of Tuesday, March 29, 1566 A.D., by Saint Pius V, Antonio-Michele Ghislieri [Friday, January 7, 1566 - Monday, May 1, 1572] which forbade the celebration of the Holy Saturday liturgy in the evening, or towards the time of sunset.

Vigil Service for Pentecost Eve

In 1955 there was also the entire suppression of the equally ancient Vigil Service for Pentecost Eve.

Finally, in 1955 the Solemnity of Saint Joseph, Patron of the Universal Church, was suppressed. It was replaced with a kind of Feast Day of Labor, Saint Joseph the Worker, on the international socialist holiday of May Day, a.k.a. Communist Day - thus but one example of the Communist infiltration of the Roman Catholic Church!

P-31.   Saturday, November 19, 1955.

Some anti-Catholic Modernist Heretics, and their agents, were able to destroy the Traditional Catholic Holy Week Liturgy, as it had been in the Missale Romanum since Pope Saint Pius V promulgated the Missale Romanum on Tuesday, July 14, 1570, with their anti-Catholic New Holy Week Ritual, which they promulgated under the name of Pope Pius XII, whom some inside Vatican sources claim, on condition of anonymity, was attempting to recover from a failed assassination attempt against him.

Ironically, this 1955 Holy Week Liturgy was somewhat replaced when Paul 6 promulgated his Novus Ordo Missae on Thursday, April 3, 1969, and set the first Sunday of Advent at the end of 1969 as the date on which it would be required to be used.  The 1969 Novus Ordo Missae destroyed many of the essential parts of the entire Missale Romanum of Pope Saint Pius V.

His funeral procession into Rome was the largest congregation of Romans as of that date. Romans mourned "their" pope, who was born in their own city, especially as a hero in the time of war.[266]

The late pope lay in state on a bier surrounded by four Swiss Guards, and was then placed in the coffin for burial. Pius XII was buried in the grottos beneath St. Peter's Basilica in a simple tomb in a small chapel.

In the room where Pope Pius XII died, his body laid on a shiny brass bed. It was dressed in flowing white robes, topped by the ermine-lined scarlet "mozzetta" or short cape. The top of the head was covered by a scarlet camauro, also trimmed with white ermine, which fitted closely around the ears and left only the face exposed.

In the Pope's hands, clasped on his breast, were the small crucifix and the rosary he held when he died.

It was only the Communists who showed no regrets at his death. He had fought them bitterly, and for hours Moscow Radio did not even mention his death. During the final hours of his illness Russia jammed news bulletins on his condition.

In Rome, bells tolled in the pre-dawn darkness and the Altars of Rome's many churches were draped in purple, the sign of mourning. Italy declared three days of mourning and closed schools and places of entertainment.

The Last Rites

The Pope had been unwell for a week and his final illness came at 8:30 a.m. on Monday, October 6, 1958,  when he suffered a stroke, which left him paralyzed and weak. He received the Last Rites of the Roman Catholic Church, although he appeared to be making a recovery.

Then on Wednesday, October 8, 1958, he was felled by a second stroke and the Vatican announced to the world there was little hope for his recovery. In mid-afternoon the doctors reported a grave cardio-pulmonary collapse. At 3 p.m. doctors abandoned hope. Just before sundown, pneumonia set in. Doctors brought in oxygen and blood plasma.

The end followed swiftly. Prof. Antonio Gasbarrini, one of the four doctors, signaled that death was near. All gathered at the bedside of the Pope,, including the family and high papal officers. They recited prayers for the dying. There was a choked, rasping sound from the patient.

Water

Sister Pasquilina, the faithful housekeeper for more than two decades, gently wiped the unconscious Pope's lips with water during the recital of the prayers.

At one point she took the crucifix, which had been resting on the Pope's chest and put it near his mouth.

The Pope's last words before lapsing into unconsciousness showed that the Church was foremost in his mind.  “Pray”, he said. “Pray that this regrettable situation for the Church may end.”

But what was this regrettable situation for the Church?

Some attribute it to Communism which he had seen spawnilng wars and perseution of the Church.

However, several sources who worked inside the Vatican, on condition of anonymity, claimed that for several years before his death, he witnessed the rise of Modernist Heretics to positions of power in the Church.

Some even claim that he became aware of the infiltration of the Church by Communists and other Communist activity, e.g. the April, 1950 investigations of the Tydings Committee in the U.S. Congress, and/or perhaps the lecture at Fordham University during 1950 by the ex-Communist, Dr. Bella Dodd concerning the Communist plans for taking control of the Roman Catholic Church, or perhaps the shocking news that, just before she left the Communist Party in 1949, that - she had been working with no fewer than 4 Communist Cardinals who had their offices inside the Vatican itself!

Some of these eye-witneeses even claimed that it was common knowledge in the Vattican that Cardinal Ottaviani was sometimes used for special missions by Pope Pius XII, one of which was sending Cardinal Ottaviani, possibly several times, to secretly talk with Sister Lucia about the Third Secret of Fatima.

One must also wonder IF Pope Pius XII had Cardinal Ottaviani, or other trusted Cardinals, spy on certain Vatican Cardinals, Archbishops, etc., especially on those who were known to be Communists, Moernist Heretics, etc.?  One is also left to wonder how many more Communist infiltrators were discovered working in the Vatican itself?

IF so, this would seem to make more sense of the more general-sounding: “Pray that this regrettable situation for the Church may end”, much more specific and of much greater immediate concern for Pope Pius XII.

Death

At 3:52 a.m. on Thursday, October 9, 1958, Prof. Gasbarrini put a stethoscope to the Pontiff's chest, felt for a pulse, and then turned and said: E morto - he is dead.

All present slowly filed past the Pope’s deathbed:  The Noble Guards, the Swiss Guards, and the Gendarmes on duty.

Msgr. Angelo Dell-Acqua, Vatican assistant Pro-Secretary of State, went into the adjoining Chapel and recited the first Requiem Funeral Mass for the dead Pope.

A Few Observations

To Roman Catholics, Pope Pius XII was the dauntless champion of the Roman Catholic Church in many areas.  To non-Catholics he was a statesman, a world leader who tried to prevent World War II by personal intervention, and also a man who fought against Communism.

His death ended one of the most notable pontificates in the 19 centuries of the Roman Catholic Church.  Some people considered him to be a saint, and it was though that he would most certainly be canonized very quickly.

The Roman Catholic Church reported that on the morning of Thursday, December 2, 1954, while suffering a serious illness, he saw “the sweet person of Jesus Christ at his bedside” while he was reciting the prayer, “Anima Christi”.

However, according to some inside Vatican sources, they each claim, on condition of anonymity, this serious illness was caused by having been poisoned and that Christ Himself brought the dead Pope Pius XII back to life, after which Pius XII began to recite the “Anima Christi”, and it was only then that he saw Jesus Christ.

Another apparent vision was of the revolving suns, which appeared to him in the Vatican gardens during the 1950 Holy Year.  This was a vision that was considered to be similar to the Great Miracle of the Sun at Fatima, Portugal, during the last visit of Our Lady of Fatima, at noon, solar time, on Saturday, October 13, 1917.

We were told, by several sources who worked inside the Vatican, on condition of anonymity, that ALL of the Roman Catholic Popes, beginning with Pope Leo XIII, and up to and including Pope Pius XII, were all assassinated, with not one, but several different assassination attempts being made against Pope Pius XII.

Requiescat in pace.




Mrs./Dr. Bella V. Dodd told her friend, Mrs./Dr. Alice von Hildebrand, the 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. for the Communist Party].” (Christian Order magazine, “The Church in Crisis”, reprinted from The Latin Mass magazine.)

The Mystery Explained
The Modus Operandi of Pope Pius XII
The Logical Procedures Pope Pius XII Used

Introducttion

Some Readers may be exasperated concerning the apparent contradictions of Pope Pius XII because of the Non-Catholic designations of some of his Papal Acts provided in the above data?  However, in order to better explain some of the above Non-Catholic designations, it is necessary to provide cogent reasons for such apparent Non-Catholic acts.

As already explained above, Pope Pius XII was the Pope of the Roman Catholic Church during a most difficult time period both during and after WWII when the anti-Catholic Infiltrators were trying to destroy the Church from within who also were most likely aware of his strong anti-Communism position.

Furthermore, apparently Pius XII was not aware that at least four, and most probably many more,  Cardinals were Communists!

As a result, a number of attempts were made to assassinate Pope Pius XII.  Some of these attempts caused one or more physical problems for him, as exampled by his long illnesses, such as a number of severe problems with hic-ups.

On condition of anonymity, We were informed  that various methods were used by certain anti-Catholic infiltrators who tried to take over the Papacy and issue certain questionable documents in the name of the Pope whom they were trying to poison.

Also, on condition of anonymity, We were informed that in 1950, shortly after the Encyclical  Humani Generis, was formally issued by Pope Pius XII on Wednesday, April 12, 1950, which forbade. The Teaching of the NEW Erroneous Philosophy, which Pope Pius XII had previously called a NEW Theology, the anti-Catholic infiltrators, e.g. Communists, Freemasons, etc., decided to make every effort to kill Pope Pius XII and his good name.

It is interesting to note that apparently his physical health began to deteriorate from this time period until 1954 when his health really degenerated - a time which the anti-Catholic infiltrators began to go wild what with the so-called New Holy Week Liturgy, and most of the so-called documents (issued under his name), after that time, until his death.

However, there are also a number of other cases where yet a totally different reason for the Non-Catholic designation applies, primarily due to the personal professional philosophy, and modus operandi, of the.Professional Vatican Diplomatic Peace mentality of Pope Pius XII, the Pope of Peace, as explained below...

When Readers understand the logical procedures of the Pope of Peace, then the above appparent contraditions make much more sense and actually serve to exonerate Pope Pius XII.

But first, Readers need a brief historical review of part of the Life of Eugenio Maria Giuseppe Giovanni Pacelli to better understand him within the context of some of his problems and also some of his actual victories, but most expecially his logical procedures as well as his intense desire for peace.


Brief Background Data

A Few Members of the Pacelli Family

Eugenio Maria Giuseppe Giovanni Pacelli, the future Pope Pius XII, was on Thursday, March 2, 1876, in the city of Rome.  Eugenio Pacelli was one of four children whose family was part of the papal, or black, nobility, which was devoted to service to the Vatican.

For example:

His Great-Grandfather was the Minister of Finance under Pope Gregory XVI,  Bartolomeo Alberto-Mauro-Cappellari [Wednesday, February 2, 1831 - Monday, June 1, 1846].

His Grandfather had served as Undersecretary of the Interior under Pope Pius IX, Giovanni Maria Mastai-Ferretti [Tuesday, June 16, 1846 - Thursday, February 7, 1878].

His Father was the dean of the Vatican lawyers.

Education of Eugenio Pacelli


Eugenio Pacelli attended state primary schools and completed his secondary education at the Visconti Institute.  Afterwards, he studied at the Appolinare Institute of the Lateran University where he earned a degree in law, and at the Pontifical Roman Athenaeum S. Apollinare. for his doctoral degree in Sacred Theology.  Immediately after completing his doctoral degree, Eugenio Pacelli was Ordained a Priest.

Ordination of Father Pacelli

While all of the other candidates from the Archdiocese of Rome were Ordained to the Holy Priesthood in the Basilica of Saint John Lateran, only Eugenio Pacelli was Ordained a Priest on Easter Sunday, April 2, 1899 in the private chapel of a family friend, the Vicegerent of Rome, Msgr. Paolo Cassetta.

 Postgraduate Studies in Canon Law

Shortly after his Ordination, Father Pacelli began his postgraduate studies in Canon Law at Sant' Apollinaire. Father Pacelli received his first assignment as a Pastor at Chiesa Nuova.   In 1901 Father Pacelli entered the Congregation for Extraordinary Ecclesiastical Affairs, a sub-office of the Vatican Secretariat of State.

Father Pacelli the Teacher


Father Pacelli taught International Law and Diplomacy at the School for Papal Diplomats in Rome. On  Sunday, February 1, 1914, Father Pacelli was named Secretary of the Congregation
for Extraordinary Ecclesiastical Affairs, a position he had up to 1917.

Canon Law

It was in response to the request of the Bishops at the First Vatican Council, that Pope Saint Pius X, Giuseppe Melchiorre Sarto [b. at Riese, Lombardy-Venetia, Austrian Empire on Tuesday, June 2, 1835; Pope: Tuesday, August 4, 1903 - d. at the Apostolic Palace, Rome, Kingdom of Italy, on Thursday, August 20, 1914], ordered the creation of a general Roman Catholic Canon Law codification. He entrusted this project to Pietro Cardinal Gasparri who was appointed Undersecretary at the Department of Extraordinary Affairs,

Cardinal Gasparri contacted Father Pacelli with a proposal for him to work in the “Vatican’s equivalent of the Foreign office” by his emphasis on the “necessity of defending the Church from the onslaughts of secularism and liberalism throughout Europe”.  As the result of agreeing with Cardinal Gasparri, Father Pacelli became an apprendista, (an apprentice), in Cardinal Gasparri’s department.

Cardinal Gasparri was helped in the Canon Law project by a number of people, in addition to Father Pacelli, such as Giacomo della Chiesa (the future Pope Benedict XV).  Some Canonists think that perhaps Father Eugenio Pacelli was the most qualified Canonist in the Roman Curia at that time who helped with the codification, simplification, and modernization of Canon Law.

Apostolic Nuncio (Ambassador)

As part of Pope Benedict XV’s initiative to end World War I, Pope Benedict XV appointed Father Pacelli, with whom he had previously worked together on the Canon Law project, as the Apostolic Nuncio to Bavaria, on Friday, April 20, 1917.

It is important to note that Father Pacelli enthusiastically endorsed Pope Benedict’s strict impartiality, even though the Pope’s attempts to mediate a peace proved unsuccessful.


Following the war, he remained in the Bavarian capital, Munich, where he had a shocking experience when, during the Spartacist (Spartacus League) uprising in 1919,Communists burst into the Papal Nunciature brandishing revolvers. This encounter left an indelible impression upon Archbishop Pacelli and contributed to his lifelong distrust of Communism.

In 1920, Archbishop Pacelli was dispatched as the first Apostolic Nuncio to the new German Weimar Republic, with whom he sought to negotiate a Concordat (a Papal Agreement with a national government aimed at preserving the Church’s privileges and freedom of action within the country in question). Archbishop Pacelli’s discussions with the Weimar government failed, but he succeeded in signing agreements with Bavaria in 1924 and Prussia in 1929.

Contradictory Personalities


Pope Pius XII was a trained Diplomat.

As a well-trained, and experienced Diplomat, Pope Pius XII followed the cautious course paved by Pope Leo XIII and Pope Benedict XV.

Said another way, Pope Pius XII did NOT follow the much more confrontational course which had been taken by Pope Pius IX, Pope Saint Pius X, and Pope Pius XI.

On the contrary, Pope Pius XII tried to be the “Pope of Peace”.

Sadly, the the “Pope of Peace”, failed to dissuade European governments from embarking on the path of war.

However, ironically, while Pope Pius XI was outspoken and confrontational, Cardinal Pacelli was cautious and diplomatic. Yet the two complemented each other andboth of them shared the belief that Church interests could better be assured by Concordats, even with regimes hostile to Catholic principles, than by reliance on nation-based political parties acting on the Church’s behalf.

It was Cardinal Pacelli’s Brother, Francesco Pacelli, who helped Cardinal Gasparri and Pope Pius XI conclude the Lateran Accords (Lateran Treaty) with fascist Italy in 1929, which ended the so-called Roman Question.  It was the Lateran Treaty which created the independent state of Vatican City.

Cardinal Pacelli, in turn, helped to negotiate Concordats with Baden (1932), Austria (1933), and, controversially, with Adolf Hitler’s Third Reich on Thursday, July 20, 1933. Some denounced this last one as an unfortunate Vatican bargain with a notorious regime.

Just and Fair Treaties, Concordats, Etc, and Those Unjust and Unfair

Good, honest, Diplomats, try to achieve signed Treaties, Concordats, etc, which are just and fair to both sides.  Hence, such Diplomats impute good faith and good will to both sides.  This increases the prospects for a just and fair outcome for both sides.

However, when one side is evil and the other good, it seems too often a Diplomat is willing to settle  at any price which too often ultimately ends in disaster.

Pope Pius XII, the Diplomat

A Reason for the Non-Catholic designations of some of his Papal Acts Found Above

A Brief Analysis

Pope Pius XII, Eugenio Maria Giuseppe Giovanni Pacelli, was not only a Canon Lawyer, but most especially, for many decades, had many personal experiences as a very well-trained, and also as a very well-experienced, Vatican Diplomat.

It should also be remembered that he had also been a Professor of International Law and Diplomacy.

Therefore, Professor Pacelli, in the person of Pope Pius XII, the very well-experienced, Vatican Diplomat, was a very Cautious and Diplomatic Peaceful Person desirous of Peace, who was sometimes called The Pope of Peace.

Said another way, Pope Pius XII was:

NOT a Biblical Scholar,
NOT a Professor of Church Liturgy,
NOT a Professor of Church Music,
NOT a Professor of Church History,
NOT a Professor of Ecclesiastical Patristics,
NOT a Professor of Dogmatic Theology,
NOT a Professor of Ascetical Theology,
NOT a Professor of Mystical Theology,
NOT a Professor of Church Councils,
NOT a Professor of Papal Teachings, etc.

On a personal level, Pope Pius XII was usually NOT Outspoken, NOT Confrontational, and obviously did NOT have - a Choleric Temperament.  On the contrary, this professionally-trained, and very well-experienced, Vatican Diplomat, simply wanted peace.

So this means that Pope Pius XII was NOT really very-well qualified to make decisions of a theological nature (despite his generic degree in Sacred Theology), of a liturgical nature, of a Biblilcal nature, of a juridical nature, etc.

Therefore, aside from the areas of Law and Diplomacy, Pope Pius XII had to rely upon those who, unlike himself, were "experts" in those fields, possibly by even some of the secret Communist Cardinals.

Sadly, some of these experts apparently deliberately mislead Pope Pius XII, or, even in some basic areas which require only basic knowledge, his desire for peace at any price became obvious to his enemies, and they took advantage of this situation which provided them with opportunities for their plans for their eventual total take-over of the Roman Cattholic Church!

Perhaps the most obvious example of his peace at any price  fallacy is most obvious in his Encyclical Mediator Dei.

Here is a  prime example:

62. Assuredly it is a wise and most laudable thing to return in spirit and affection to the sources of the sacred liturgy. For research in this field of study, by tracing it back to its origins, contributes valuable assistance towards a more thorough and careful investigation of the significance of feast-days, and of the meaning of the texts and sacred ceremonies employed on their occasion. But it is neither wise nor laudable to reduce everything to antiquity by every possible device. Thus, to cite some instances, one would be straying from the straight path were he to wish the altar restored to its primitive tableform; were he to want black excluded as a color for the liturgical vestments; were he to forbid the use of sacred images and statues in Churches; were he to order the crucifix so designed that the divine Redeemer's body shows no trace of His cruel sufferings; and lastly were he to disdain and reject polyphonic music or singing in parts, even where it conforms to regulations issued by the Holy See. (Mediator Dei)
So here Pope Pius XII listed various errors.  Now exactly what action did Pope Pius XII take to totally put a complete end to these things?

For example, did Pope Pius XII take the same course of action, as had Pope Saint Pius X, who first condemned the errors and heresies of the Modernist Heretics, as he did in his Encyclical Pascendi Dominici Gregis. on Sunday, September 8, 1907, and then issued an automatic excommunication of all heretics, especially the Modernist Heretics, in his Motu Proprio: Præstantia Scripturæ Sacræ, on Monday, November 18, 1907?

Answer:  NO!  Total silence from Pope  Pius XII - the professional Vatican Diplomat!

Therefore, the peace at any price  fallacy  of the professional Vatican Diplomat, Pope Pius XII, opened the virtual floodgates of heresy and apostasy to the enemies of the Roman Catholic Church so that the Pope Saint Pius X.automatically. excommunicated. Apostates. and .Modernist. Heretics..
had a reprieve because what Pope Saint Pius X did was not being enforced by Pope Pius XII - too confrontational for the Pope of Peace, Pius XII!

First Action

However, surprise-surprise, there were at least two things that Pope Pius XII actually did, which, temporarily, slowed down this virtual stampede to totally destroy the Roman Catholic Church!



“There is a good deal of talk... about a NEW Theology,
which must be in constant transformation...
[i.e. evolution:  constant change].”
(Pope Pius XII, Eugenio Pacelli
[Thursday, March 2, 1939 - Thursday, October 9, 1958],
L'Osservatore Romano, Thursday, December 19, 1946)

But the usual problem of no censures was still in effect by the Pope of Peace who perhaps thought that just talking about it would resolve the problem?  Of course, it did not.


Second Action

The actual behind-the-scenes historical reasons for the folllowing are not known at this time.  But what did actually happen is known, at least to some extent.

Apparently Pope Pius XII asked for the help of Father Reginald Garrigou-Lagrange, O.P. who apparently had ghost-writen at least part of the Encyclical  Humani Generis, formally issued by Pope Pius XII on Wednesday, April 12, 1950, which forbade. The Teaching of the NEW Erroneous Philosophy.which Pope Pius XII had previously called a NEW Theology.

This Encyclical finally had some good results as witnessed by Bishop Aloysius Wycislo:“


Pope Pius XII's encyclical Humani Generis had.... a devastating effect on the work of a number of pre-conciliar theologians.... theologians and biblical scholars, who had been under a cloud for years, surfaced as periti [theological experts who advised the Bishops] at Vatican II.  (Bishop Aloysius Wycislo [b. at Chicago, Illinois in 1908 - d. in 2005] Vatican Two Revisited; Reflections by One who was there, paperback edition published by Alba House on October, 1987; emphasis added.)

Father Reginald Garrigou-Lagrange, O.P. later, under his own name, wrote:  The Structure of the Encyclical  Humani Generis.

Father also wrote, among many other things:  Where is the NEW Theology Leading Us?  La nouvelle théologie où va-t-elle?

Conclusion

So here is one example of how Pope Pius XII choose someone who really was a Roman Catholic and also a very knowledgeable Thomistic Theologian.

It is sad that the Pope was not able to find any real Biblical Scholars and Liturgists to help him, who were of the same quality, as was Father Reginald Garrigou-Lagrange, O.P.  Apparently, most, or all, of the so-called Biblical Scholars and Liturgists upon whom Pope Pius XII relied, were either incompetant, and/or .NEW. Theology. Theologians, as virtually verified by Bishop Aloysius Wycislo!

Therefore, IF tis is true, which at this time seems to be the case, then poor Pope Pius XII had only secret .NEW. Theology. Theologians, along with some secret Communists, etc., to help im in the areas of the Bible, the Liturgy, etc.!  Hence, no wonder there were major problems in these areas of which Pope Pius XII was victimized, just as the rest of all Roman Catholics!

Hopefully, the above food for thought, will help to exonerate but one of the countless victims of the anti-Catholic .NEW. Theology. Heretics, and also the  secret Communists, not to mention others who were secret members of various anti-Catholic organizations, as for example the Freemasons, as in the case of Roncalli (future 2nd John 23rd), namely - His Holiness, Pope Pius XII.

Requiescat in pace.
Pope of Peace.


Addenda:  Some Historical Events
In the Life of Pope Pius XII


January, 1901.

In January 1901 he was also chosen, by Pope Leo XIII himself, according to an official account, to deliver condolences on behalf of the Vatican to King Edward VII of the UK after the death of Queen Victoria.[18]

1904.

By 1904 Pacelli received his doctorate. The theme of his thesis was the nature of concordats and the function of canon law when a concordat falls into abeyance. Promoted to the position of minutante, he prepared digests of reports that had been sent to the Secretariat from all over the world and in the same year became a papal chamberlain.

1905.

In 1905 he received the title domestic prelate.[15] From 1904 until 1916, he assisted Cardinal Pietro Gasparri in his codification of canon law with the Department of Extraordinary Ecclesiastical Affairs.[19] According to John Cornwell "the text, together with the Anti-Modernist Oath, became the means by which the Holy See was to establish and sustain the new, unequal, and unprecedented power relationship that had arisen between the papacy and the Church".[20]

1908.

In 1908, Pacelli served as a Vatican representative on the International Eucharistic Congress, accompanying Rafael Merry del Val[21] to London,[18] where he met Winston Churchill.[22]

1911.

In 1911, he represented the Holy See at the coronation of King George V.[19]
Pacelli became the under-secretary in 1911,

1912.

adjunct-secretary in 1912 (a position he received under Pope Pius X and retained under Pope Benedict XV), and secretary of the Department of Extraordinary Ecclesiastical Affairs in February 1914.[19]

June 24, 1914.

On 24 June 1914, just four days before Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria was assassinated in Sarajevo, Pacelli, together with Cardinal Merry del Val, represented the Vatican when the Serbian Concordat was signed. Serbia's success in the First Balkan War against Turkey in 1912 had increased the number of Catholics within greater Serbia. At this time Serbia, encouraged by Russia, was challenging Austria-Hungary's sphere of influence throughout the Balkans.

August 20, 1914.

Pius X died on 20 August 1914. His successor Benedict XV named Gasparri as secretary of state and Gasparri took Pacelli with him into the Secretariat of State, making him undersecretary.[23] During World War I, Pacelli maintained the Vatican's registry of prisoners of war and worked to implement papal relief initiatives.

1915.

In 1915, he travelled to Vienna to assist Monsignor Raffaele Scapinelli, nuncio to Vienna, in his negotiations with Emperor Franz Joseph I of Austria regarding Italy.[24]

April 23, 1917.

Pope Benedict XV appointed Pacelli as nuncio to Bavaria on 23 April 1917,
 

May 13, 1917.

consecrating him as titular Archbishop of Sardis in the Sistine Chapel on 13 May 1917. After his consecration, Eugenio Pacelli left for Bavaria. As there was no nuncio to Prussia or Germany at the time, Pacelli was, for all practical purposes, the nuncio to all of the German Empire.

May 29, 1917.

Once in Munich, he conveyed the papal initiative to end the war to German authorities.[25]
He met with King Ludwig III on 29 May, and later with Kaiser Wilhelm II[26] and Chancellor Theobald von Bethmann-Hollweg, who replied positively to the Papal initiative. However, Bethmann-Hollweg was forced to resign and the German High Command, hoping for a military victory, delayed the German reply until 20 September.

Sister Pascalina later recalled that the Nuncio was heartbroken that the Kaiser turned "deaf ear to all his proposals". She later wrote, "Thinking back today on that time, when we Germans still all believed that our weapons would be victorious and the Nuncio was deeply sorry that the chance had been missed to save what there was to save, it occurs to me over and over again how clearly he foresaw what was to come. Once, as he traced the course of the Rhine with his finger on a map, he said sadly, 'No doubt this will be lost as well'. I did not want to believe it, but here, too, he was to be proven right."[27]

For the remainder of the Great War, Pacelli concentrated on Benedict's humanitarian efforts[28] especially among Allied POWs in German custody.[29] In the upheaval following the Armistice, a disconcerted Pacelli sought Benedict XV's permission to leave Munich, where Kurt Eisner had formed the Free State of Bavaria, and he left for a while to Rorschach, and a tranquil Swiss sanatorium run by nuns. Monsignor Schioppa, the uditore, was left in Munich.[30]

"His recovery began with a 'rapport'" with the 24-year-old Sister Pascalina Lehnert—she would soon be transferred to Munich when Pacelli "pulled strings at the highest level".[31]

When he returned to Munich, following Eisner's assassination by an anti-Semitic extreme nationalist, Count Anton von Arco auf Valley, he informed Gasparri-using Schioppa's eye-witness testimony of the chaotic scene at the former royal palace as the trio of Max Levien, Eugen Levine, and Towia Axelrod sought power: "the scene was indescribable [-] the confusion totally chaotic [-] in the midst of all this, a gang of young women, of dubious appearance, Jews like the rest of them hanging around [-] the boss of this female rabble was Levien's mistress, a young Russian woman, a Jew and a divorcée [-] and it was to her that the nunciature was obliged to pay homage in order to proceed [-] Levien is a young man, also Russian and a Jew. Pale, dirty, with drugged eyes, vulgar, repulsive ..."

John Cornwell alleges that a worrying impression of anti-Semitism is discernible in the "catalogue of epithets describing their physical and moral repulsiveness" and Pacelli's "constant harping on the Jewishnessof this party of power usurpers" chimed with the "growing and widespread belief among Germans that the Jews were the instigators of the Bolshevik revolution, their principal aim being the destruction of Christian civilization".[32]

Also according to Cornwell, Pacelli informed Gasparri that "the capital of Bavaria, is suffering under a harsh Jewish-Russian revolutionary tyranny".[33]

1922.

According to Sister Pascalina Lehnert, the Nuncio was repeatedly threatened by emissaries of the Bavarian Soviet Republic. Once, in a violation of international law, the Bavarian Revolutionary Government attempted to confiscate the Nunciature's car at gunpoint. Despite their demands, however, Pacelli refused to leave his post.[34]

After the Munich Soviet Republic was defeated and toppled by Freikorps and Reichswehr troops, the Nuncio focused on, according to Lehnert, "alleviating the distress of the postwar period, consoling, supporting all in word and deed".[35]

June 23, 1920.

Pacelli was appointed Apostolic Nuncio to Germany on 23 June 1920, and—after the completion of a Bavarian concordat—his nunciature was moved to Berlin in August 1925. Many of Pacelli's Munich staff stayed with him for the rest of his life, including his advisor Robert Leiber and Sister Pascalina Lehnert—housekeeper, cook, friend, and adviser for 41 years.

1924.

In Berlin, Pacelli was Dean of the Diplomatic Corps and active in diplomatic and many social activities. He was aided by the German priest Ludwig Kaas, who was known for his expertise in Church-state relations and was a full-time politician, politically active in the Catholic Centre Party, a party he led following Wilhelm Marx's resignation in October 1928.[36]

While in Germany, he travelled to all regions, attended Katholikentag (national gatherings of the faithful), and delivered some 50 sermons and speeches to the German people.[37] In Berlin he lived in the Tiergarten quarter and threw parties for the official and diplomatic elite. Paul von Hindenburg, Gustav Stresemann, and other members of the Cabinet were regular guests.

1925.

As Bavarian Nuncio, Pacelli negotiated successfully with the Bavarian authorities in 1925. He expected the concordat with Catholic Bavaria to be the model for the rest of Germany.[64][65] Prussia showed interest in negotiations only after the Bavarian concordat.

1927.

Future Pope Pius XII goes hiking in 1927 Germany

In post-war Germany, in the absence of a Nuncio in Moscow, Pacelli worked also on diplomatic arrangements between the Vatican and the Soviet Union. He negotiated food shipments for Russia, where the Church was persecuted. He met with Soviet representatives including Foreign Minister Georgi Chicherin, who rejected any kind of religious education, the Ordination of Priests and the Consecration of Bishops, but offered agreements without the points vital to the Vatican.[38]

Despite Vatican pessimism and a lack of visible progress, Pacelli continued the secret negotiations, until Pius XI ordered them to be discontinued in 1927. Pacelli supported German diplomatic activity aimed at rejection of punitive measures from victorious former enemies. He blocked French attempts for an ecclesiastical separation of the Saar region, supported the appointment of a Papal administrator for Danzig and aided the reintegration of Priests expelled from Poland.[39]

1929.

The Lateran treaties with Italy (1929) were concluded before Pacelli became Secretary of State. Catholicism had become the sole recognized religion; the powerful democratic Catholic Popular Party, in many ways similar to the Centre Party in Germany, had been disbanded, and in place of political Catholicism the Holy See encouraged Catholic Action, "an anaemic form of clerically dominated religious rally-rousing".

It was permitted only so long as it developed "its activity outside every political party and in direct dependence upon the Church hierarchy for the dissemination and implementation of Catholic principles".[44]

Such concordats allowed the Catholic Church to organize youth groups, make ecclesiastical appointments, run schools, hospitals, and charities, or even conduct religious services. They also ensured that canon law would be recognized within some spheres (e.g., church decrees of nullity in the area of marriage).[45]

1929.

Pacelli obtained less favorable conditions for the Church in the Prussian concordat of 1929, which excluded educational issues.

June 14, 1929.

A Prussian Concordat was signed on 14 June 1929. Following the Wall Street Crash of 1929, the beginnings of a world economic slump appeared, and the days of the Weimar Republic were numbered.

December 10, 1929.

Pacelli was summoned back to Rome at this time—the call coming by telegram when he was resting at his favourite retreat, the Rorschach convent sanatorium. He left Berlin on 10 December 1929.[40] David Dalin wrote "of the forty-four speeches Pacelli gave in Germany as Papal Nuncio between 1917 and 1929, forty denounced some aspect of the emerging Nazi ideology".[41]

December 16, 1929.

Cardinal Secretary of State and Camerlengo

Pacelli was made a Cardinal-Priest of Santi Giovanni e Paolo on 16 December 1929 by Pope Pius XI.

February 7, 1930.

Within a few months, on 7 February 1930, Pius XI appointed him Cardinal Secretary of State, responsible for foreign policy and state relations throughout the world.

1930.

As the decade began Pacelli wanted the Centre Party in Germany to turn away from the socialists.

February 12, 1931.

Summer, 1931.

In the summer of 1931 he clashed with Catholic chancellor Heinrich Bruning, who frankly told Pacelli he believed that he "misunderstood the political situation in Germany and the real character of the Nazis".[46]

1932.

As Nuncio during the 1920s, he had made unsuccessful attempts to obtain German agreement for such a treaty, and between 1930 and 1933 he attempted to initiate negotiations with representatives of successive German governments, but the opposition of Protestant and Socialist parties, the instability of national governments and the care of the individual states to guard their autonomy thwarted this aim. In particular, the questions of denominational schools and pastoral work in the armed forces prevented any agreement on the national level, despite talks in the winter of 1932.[69][70]

1932.

As Cardinal Secretary of State, Pacelli signed concordats with a number of countries and states. Immediately on becoming Cardinal Secretary of State, Pacelli and Ludwig Kaas took up negotiations on a Baden Concordat which continued until the spring and summer of 1932.

1932.

A concordat with the German state of Baden was completed by Pacelli in 1932, after he had moved to Rome.

August, 1932.

Papal fiat appointed a supporter of Pacelli and his concordat policy, Conrad Gröber, the new Archbishop of Freiburg, and the treaty was signed in August 1932.[43] Others followed: Austria (1933), Germany (1933), Yugoslavia (1935) and Portugal (1940).

May, 1932.

Following Bruning's resignation in May 1932 Pacelli, like the new Catholic chancellor Franz von Papen, wondered if the Centre Party should look to the Right for a coalition, "that would correspond to their principles".[47]

1933.

In Rome, he also negotiated a concordat with Austria in 1933.[66] A total of 16 concordats and treaties with European states had been concluded in the ten-year period 1922–1932.[67]

July 20, 1933.

Pacelli (seated, center) at the signing of the Reichskonkordat on 20 July 1933 in Rome with (from left to right): German prelate Ludwig Kaas, German Vice-Chancellor Franz von Papen, Secretary of Extraordinary Ecclesiastical Affairs Giuseppe Pizzardo, Alfredo Ottaviani, and Reich minister Rudolf Buttmann

The Reichskonkordat was an integral part of four concordats Pacelli concluded on behalf of the Vatican with German States. The state concordats were necessary because the German federalist Weimar constitution gave the German states authority in the area of education and culture and thus diminished the authority of the churches in these areas; this diminution of church authority was a primary concern of the Vatican.

July 20, 1933.

The Reichskonkordat, signed on 20 July 1933, between Germany and the Holy See, while thus a part of an overall Vatican policy, was controversial from its beginning. It remains the most important of Pacelli's concordats. It is debated, not because of its content, which is still valid today, but because of its timing. A national concordat with Germany was one of Pacelli's main objectives as secretary of state, because he had hoped to strengthen the legal position of the Church. Pacelli, who knew German conditions well, emphasized in particular protection for Catholic associations (§31), freedom for education and Catholic schools, and freedom for publications.[68]

September 10, 1933.

Adolf Hitler was appointed Chancellor on 30 January 1933 and sought to gain international respectability and to remove internal opposition by representatives of the Church and the Catholic Centre Party. He sent his vice chancellor Franz von Papen, a Catholic nobleman, to Rome to offer negotiations about a Reichskonkordat.[71][72] On behalf of Pacelli, Prelate Ludwig Kaas, the outgoing chairman of the Centre Party, negotiated first drafts of the terms with Papen.[73] The concordat was finally signed, by Pacelli for the Vatican and von Papen for Germany, on 20 July and ratified on September 10, 1933.[74] Bishop Preysing cautioned against compromise with the new regime, against those who saw the Nazi persecution of the church as an aberration that Hitler would correct.[75]

Secretary of State Pacelli in Brazil in 1934

October 10  - 14, 1934.

Pacelli presided as Papal Legate over the International Eucharistic Congress in Buenos Aires, Argentina in 10–14 October 1934,

1935.

In 1935 he wrote a letter to the Bishop of Cologne describing the Nazis as "false prophets with the pride of Lucifer". and as "bearers of a new faith and a new Evangile" who were attempting to create "a mendacious antimony between faithfulness to the Church and the Fatherland".[42]

1935.

In 1935, Pacelli was named Camerlengo of the Holy Roman Church.

April 17, 1936.

Cardinal Pacelli gave a lecture entitled "La Presse et L'Apostolat" at the Pontifical University of St. Thomas Aquinas, Angelicum on April 17, 1936.

October - November, 1936.

He made many diplomatic visits throughout Europe and the Americas, including an extensive visit to the United States in 1936 where he met President Franklin D. Roosevelt, who appointed a personal envoy—who did not require Senate confirmation—to the Holy See in December 1939, re-establishing a diplomatic tradition that had been broken since 1870 when the pope lost temporal power.[48]

1937.

In 1937, at Notre Dame in Paris, he named Germany as "that noble and powerful nation whom bad shepherds would lead astray into an ideology of race".[41]

According to Joseph Bottum, Pacelli in 1937 "warned A. W. Klieforth, the American consul to Berlin, that Hitler was 'an untrustworthy scoundrel and fundamentally wicked person', to quote Klieforth, who also wrote that Pacelli 'did not believe Hitler capable of moderation, and ... fully supported the German bishops in their anti-Nazi stand'. This was matched with the discovery of Pacelli's anti-Nazi report, written the following year for President Roosevelt and filed with Ambassador Joseph Kennedy, which declared that the Church regarded compromise with the Third Reich as 'out of the question'."[52]

Encyclical, Mit brennender Sorge, 1937.

Between 1933 and 1939, Pacelli issued 55 protests of violations of the Reichskonkordat. Most notably, early in 1937, Pacelli asked several German cardinals, including Cardinal Michael von Faulhaber to help him write a protest of Nazi violations of the Reichskonkordat; this was to become Pius XI's 1937 encyclical, Mit brennender Sorge. The encyclical was written in German and not the usual Latin of official Catholic Church documents. Secretly distributed by an army of motorcyclists and read from every German Catholic Church pulpit on Palm Sunday, it condemned the paganism of the National Socialism ideology.[76] Pius XI credited its creation and writing to Pacelli.[77] It was the first official denunciation of Nazism made by any major organization and resulted in persecution of the Church by the infuriated Nazis who closed all the participating presses and "took numerous vindictive measures against the Church, including staging a long series of immorality trials of the Catholic clergy".[78]

May 25-30, 1938.

Pacelli presided as Papal Legate over the International Eucharistic Congress in Budapest in 25–30 May 1938.[49] At this time, anti-semitic laws were in the process of being formulated in Hungary. Pacelli made reference to the Jews "whose lips curse [Christ] and whose hearts reject him even today".[50]

September, 1938.

The draft Encyclical of Pope Pius XI, Achille Ratti [Monday, February 6, 1922 - Friday, February 10, 1939], Humani generis unitas ("On the Unity of the Human Race"), was ready in September, 1938 but, according to those responsible for an edition of the document[56] and other sources, it was not forwarded to the Holy See by the Jesuit General Wlodimir Ledóchowski.[57][58]

The draft Encyclical contained an open and clear condemnation of colonialism, racial persecution and anti-semitism. Historians Passelecq and Suchecky have argued that Pacelli learned about the existence of the draft only after the death of Pius XI [Friday, February 10, 1939] and did not promulgate it as Pope.[61]

He did use parts of it in his inaugural Encyclical Summi Pontificatus, which he titled "On the Unity of Human Society".[62]

November, 1938.

Historian Walter Bussmann argued that Pacelli, as Cardinal Secretary of State, dissuaded Pope Pius XI—who was nearing death at the time[53]—from condemning the Kristallnacht in November 1938,[54] when he was informed of it by the papal nuncio in Berlin.[55]

1939.

His various positions on Church and policy issues during his tenure as Cardinal Secretary of State were made public by the Holy See in 1939. Most noteworthy among the 50 speeches is his review of Church-State issues in Budapest in 1938.[63] Reichskonkordat and Mit brennender Sorge

June 10, 1941.

On June 10, 1941, Pope Pius XII commented on the problems of the Reichskonkordat in a letter to the Bishop of Passau, in Bavaria: "The history of the Reichskonkordat shows, that the other side lacked the most basic prerequisites to accept minimal freedoms and rights of the Church, without which the Church simply cannot live and operate, formal agreements notwithstanding".[79]

Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help or sought thy intercession, was left unaided. Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto thee, O Virgin of virgins, my Mother. To thee do I come; before thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate despise not my petitions, but in thy mercy hear and answer me. Amen.
