Is the Pope a Catholic?

June 27, 2017

Pope with broken cross

My self appointed task is to keep alive the knowledge of

the Judeo Masonic conspiracy that has engulfed 

and subverted humanity.  

Many classics like Piers Compton's The Broken Cross 

have been forgotten.

According to Piers Compton, the Papacy was actually 

subverted by the Illuminati in 1958 when John XXIII, became Pope.

 This was the culmination of a 200-year campaign 

to infiltrate and destroy the Catholic Church.

The goal was "the complete annihilation of the Catholicism and even ultimately of Christianity."

This has taken place before our eyes. 

"When the time comes finally to destroy the papal court...we shall come forward in the guise of its defenders...[Jesuits?] By this diversion we shall penetrate to its very bowels and be sure we shall never come out again until we have gnawed through the entire strength of this place." Protocols of the Elders of Zion-17

(from Aug 19. 2008)

by Henry Makow Ph.D

On New Years Day
2004 former Pope John Paul II called for a "new world order... based on the goals of the United Nations."

When a world leader uses this terminology, it can only mean one thing. He is a part of the Luciferian conspiracy to create a totalitarian world government.

According to Piers Compton, the Papacy was actually subverted by the Illuminati in 1958 when John XXIII became Pope. This was the culmination of a 200-year campaign to infiltrate and destroy the Catholic Church.


Piers Compton (1903-1986) was the Literary Editor of the Catholic Weekly The Universe for 14 years. He documents his claims in The Broken Cross, (1981) a book that is almost impossible to find because it was mysteriously withdrawn a few weeks after its release. The hardcover edition is offered on Amazon for $500. It is available online here.

Compton traces the modern phase of the Luciferian Conspiracy to Adam Weishaupt who established the Illuminati on May 1, 1776.

"[Weishhaupt] was backed financially, as are most if not all anarchistic leaders, by a group of bankers under the House of Rothschild. It was under their direction that the long range and worldwide plans of the Illuminati were drawn up." (8)

In 1783, the Illuminati assumed control of much of Freemasonry, which secretly coordinated the revolutionary movement (Liberalism, Socialism, and Communism.) According to David Bay, "secret societies like the "Skull and Bones" have always functioned as Satan's church, as the only way to pass the baton from generation to generation."

The Illuminati regarded the Catholic Church as their chief enemy and marked it for ruin. In 1818, their Italian lodge issued a set of Permanent Instructions that included: "We require a Pope for march more securely to the storming of the church...." 

The goal was "the complete annihilation of the Catholicism and even ultimately of Christianity. If Christianity were to revive, even upon the ruins of Rome, it would, a little later revive and live." (13-14)


In an Encyclical Dec. 8, 1892 Pope Leo XIII identified two Kingdoms. "The one is the kingdom of God on earth, namely, the true Church of Jesus Christ; and those who desire from their heart to be united with it...The other is the kingdom of Satan...those who refuse to obey the divine and eternal law, and who have many aims of their own in contempt of God, and many aims also against God."

Throughout history they have been in conflict.

"At this period, however, the partisans of evil seems to be combining together, and to be struggling with united vehemence, led on or assisted by that strongly organized and widespread association called the Freemasons. No longer making any secret of their purposes, they are now boldly rising up against God Himself."

Ironically, when Leo XIII died in 1903, a Freemason, Cardinal Mariano Rampolla, was almost elected Pope. Emperor Franz Joseph of Austria vetoed his appointment in the last moment. .

The Illuminists had to wait another 55 years to gain control of the Papacy. When Pope Pius XII died in 1958, a Freemason Cardinal Angello Roncalli, became Pope John XXIII.

Predictably, his first act was to begin to remove the element of Divine Revelation from Catholic teaching, and to embrace naturalism, materialism and Communism. These steps were taken at the Ecumenical Council in 1962 and Vatican Two in 1965.

As a result, Malachi Martin, a former Jesuit, predicted the Roman Catholic Church would no longer be recognizable by the year 2000. "There will be no centralized control, no uniformity in teaching, no universality in practice and worship, prayer, sacrifice and priesthood." (63)


Cardinal Giovanni Montini, who succeeded John XXIII as Pope Paul VI in 1963, was also a Freemason and socialist. (In 1944, Pope Pius XII had dismissed him as Vatican Secretary of State for conducting secret negotiations with the Communists. 53)


Paul VI revealed his true colors in a speech to the United Nations in 1965: "It is your task here to proclaim the basic rights and duties of Man. You are the interpreters of all that is permanent in human wisdom; we could almost say of its sacred character." (67)

This repudiation of the church's spiritual authority was symbolized by Paul's gift of the Papal Ring and his Pectoral Cross to Secretary General U Thant who sold them at an auction. (71)

The United Nations was set up on land donated by the Rockefellers as a front for the elite's Luciferian dictatorship. Its Charter was based on the Constitution of Soviet Russia and its leaders were Communists. It's Chapel is dedicated to paganism and run by the Lucis Trust (formerly Lucifer Trust) which also handles all its publications.


Paul VI also embraced a sinister symbol used by Satanists in the Sixth Century, which had been revived by Vatican Two.

This was a bent or broken cross (above) on which was displayed a repulsive and distorted figure of Christ. Black magicians and sorcerers in the Middle Ages had used it for occult purposes. It represented the "Mark of the Beast."

Compton:" Yet not only Paul VI but also his successors the two John Pauls carried that object and held it up to be revered by crowds who had not the slightest idea that it stood for the anti Christ." (72)

Paul VI abolished the anti-Modernist Oath, the Index of forbidden books, and revised the Canon Laws. History and texts written from a predominantly Catholic point of view were re-edited. He encouraged "humanist" theologians like Edward Schillebeeck who taught that the "the most honest and natural man was one who believed nothing." (105)

In 1976, the Journal Borghese printed a list of 125 top clerics who were Freemasons in contravention of Church law. It included their dates of initiation and secret code names taken from the Italian Register of Secret Societies. Compton prints the list, which includes the heads of Vatican radio and press, Catholic education as well as numerous high officials, Cardinals and Archbishops.

Because Paul VI was Pope, nothing came of it. Sounding very much like the Mason he was, Paul said in 1969: "We are about to witness a greater freedom in the life of the Church...fewer obligations and fewer inward prohibitions. Formal disciplines will be reduced...every form of intolerance will be abolished." (104)

This attitude is explained by reports that from 1936-1950, the future Paul VI was part of a Communist espionage network, a part owner in a chain of brothels and financed erotic films. (110)


Albino Luciano, the Cardinal of Venice became Pope John Paul I on August 26 1978. He was also a "committed Left-winger" but he may have taken issue with the Vatican's financial shenanigans because he was dead a month later. There was no autopsy.

Pope John Paul II, Karol Wojtyla, succeeded him. Wojtyla is the first non-Italian since 1522, and the only Pope from an Iron Curtain country. Compton notes that while the other Polish Cardinal Wyszynski "never yielded an inch" to the Communists, Wojtyla opposed this attitude and collaborated. The Abbe de Nantes exclaimed, "We have a Communist Pope."


During the Conclave at which he was elected, Wojtyla read from a book of Marxist principles. In his first Encyclical, he praised Paul VI for having "revealed the true countenance of the Church" and bringing it in step "with the times." He went so far as to say that opponents of Vatican Two "cannot be considered the faithful." (172)

In a letter Sept 1, 1981 he said, "Christian tradition has never upheld the right of private property as absolute and untouchable." This contradicts numerous Encyclicals which state that private property is "a necessary incentive to human enterprise" and in accordance with divine wisdom and the laws of nature.

Pope Pius XII: "Only private enterprise can provide the head of a family with the healthy freedom it requires to carry out the duties allotted to him by the Creator for the physical, spiritual and religious well being of the family." (174)

Communism (state ownership) is a facade by which the bankers and monopoly capitalists will own everything.

On Nov. 27, 1983 Pope John Paul II issued a Papal Bull that legalized secret society membership for Roman Catholics.

While ostensibly a celibate priest, Compton suggests that Woytyla's behavior resembled a Bohemian artist. He was involved in theatre in Poland and penned a play about prostitution. Compton reproduces pictures of him when he was a Bishop or Cardinal. He is with a woman and child on a beach. The child is climbing on him. They look very much like a family.

In 1960, he published a book "Love and Responsibility" which extolled sexual love and describes both the physiology and psychology of sex. He told an audience of French youth: "Bodily union has always been the strongest language two people can have for each other."


Writing from the vantage point of 1981, Compton predicted that the Church's traditional positions will continue to be watered down.


Around the same time, Malachi Martin said, "The Christian church is decaying, has nothing to say and is on the way out." He added that the other great religions are suffering the same fate and predicted, "A worldwide religion with one structure and institutions," managed by "one great bureaucracy. And out of that will emerge the ultimate disaster."

I present this material because it is consistent with the emerging picture of an organized Satanic Conspiracy to subvert mankind.

Only in this light can we identify the lures of the modern world -- materialism, the mystification of sexual love, and the social engineering associated with feminism, zionism, gay rights, tolerance, diversity -- as part of a diabolical process of spiritual, mental and physical enslavement.

"Modern" western society appears to be based on this conspiracy against God. Our cultural and political leaders are mostly witting or unwitting accomplices.

Eventually we will learn that real freedom lies in obeying God. The alternative is to become Lucifer's slave. The barbarism of the past century was not an aberration, but a harbinger of the future.

First Comment from "an Anonymous Priest"

I believe that Dr Steve Pieczenik speaks truthfully in his testimony specifically regarding Jorge Bergoglio, which makes the "peace loving" "Pope Francis" out to be more like Stalin than St Francis of Assisi.

Jorge Mario Bergoglio was a violent co-conspirator of a bloody military junta in Argentina. I do not endorse Pieczenik's opinions in general, but his testimony regarding Bergoglio I think is probably true and consistent with Bergoglio's actions as impostor and pope.

I would rather you not publish my name, as it may disturb my difficult relations with superiors in the Catholic Church, who are in denial about this and many other things.

Tony B writes:

A few comments which seem necessary to put this article in proper perspective.

1.  The article is essentially true although the addition in brackets of the word "Jesuits?" needs amplification.  The original Jesuits were created expressly for and DID save the Church at that time.  This is probably the reason that the organization has been throughly infiltrated and is now an active arm of the enemies of God.

2.  Nothing in the article indicates that the reason for this current satanizing of God's Church is because it has been, from its creation by Jesus Christ, the ONLY organization in the way of the devil controlling the world.  Most people of the English language have no idea that protestantism was, from the beginning, created as a weapon against God's Church yet it is proved so by its very name "protestantism" a protest against the rules of God on earth vested in the Church created by Jesus Christ.  

They tend to dismiss Christ's adamant demand that "unless one eat his flesh and drink his blood (via the Eucharist) there is no salvation" as not important to their worship when He made it crystal clear that it is the very heart of it. 

The enemies of God have never had any fear of "Christianity lite."

3.  Although the Church and therefore the whole world is in a dark, satanic funk at present, the devil has already lost the war against God.  Christ insisted that His Church would last until the end of the world and the Virgin Mary told Lucy, the only one of the Fatima children to live to be an adult, that eventually her Immaculate Heart would triumph, an indication that the Church will return to godliness at its top.  

Therefore, even though the Church at present is satanically overrun at that top, the people will not all be fooled but will keep their faith, as many did in England and Ireland, after Henry VIII, for hundreds of years despite every kind of persecution including mass murder.

Comments for "Is the Pope a Catholic?"

Peter R said (June 29, 2017):

Excellent, Henry! One clarification- the Enemies of Our Lord have taken over the Vatican, a secular state created by Mussolini. The Catholic Church was defined by Pius XII as the"Mystical Body of Christ" For much of history, the Bishop of Rome resided in Rome although for decades he resided in Avignon, France. Now there is no valid Bishop of Rome, so the Catholic Church exists only where there are valid Bishops ,priest and laity. Our Lord indicated at Luke 18,8 that at the time of His second coming, faith would be almost non-existent. We appear to be close to that time now.

Jarle said (June 29, 2017):

Good reminders in your article here: Very good. A catholic commenter irritates me with his ignorance, so if you will allow me to repudiate him, as a defender of protestantism, what all is out to attack in our days.... soon extinct

My Comment:

Ignorant : "Most people of the English language have no idea that protestantism was, from the beginning, created as a weapon against God's Church yet it is proved so by its very name "protestantism" a protest against the rules of God on earth vested in the Church created by Jesus Christ. "

I am not into theology, more into history, and history proves itself, no need for interpretations:

"Protestantism is nothing else than this old Norse tradition of anti-catolisism and anti-Judiiasm by Martin Luther, a revitalizaion of the old Celtic Christian tradition by HÃ¥kon den Gode, Olav Trygvasson (died year 1000) and Olav II Haraldson (notwitstanding the satanic Catolics have tried to hijack Olav II Haraldson by making him Saint after his death, he was baptised by the Celtic traditions in England, not in Rome."

Ken Adachi said (June 29, 2017):

I haven't read this book and I'm not a scholar or historian, but anyone can put anything to print in a book. It doesn't mean it's true. You can color a story in any direction desired to fit your intentions. The biggest problem here is accusation without substantiation. Where is the PROOF that the last 4 or 5 or 6 Popes were Freemasons? A photo of the man to become the current Pope is seen in a bus (or subway train) in Argentina reaching into his jacket when the picture was snapped and THAT proves he's a Freemason? A cropped photo (which excludes the husband standing nearby) of a beach scene showing Bishop Woytyla with a woman and a child being playful and affectionate with Woytyla does not prove, imply, or even HINT of anything illicit. We find out Malachi Martin was a Zionist plant AFTER he dies, not when he was bad mouthing the Vatican and Papacy during his many lurid interviews with Art Bell 10 or 15 years ago. Nowadays, you'll find that in practically every anti-NWO article or Youtube videos (or Youtube comment) the word "Jesuit" is linked to the names of Rothchild, Illuminati, the "Black Pope" etc., and characterized as top architects and planners of the NWO world takeover scheme without even a SMIDGEN of proof of ANY nefarious involvement whatsoever. Are we expected to accept the imaginary fantasies of a Zionist-hired gun like novelist Dan Brown, or that Zionist-hired stonemason-come-"scholar" Eric Jon Phelps as proof of anything?

The Catholic church is not the Pope, the Vatican, the College of Cardinals, or even the Bishops or Archbishops. It's the PEOPLE who go to church on Sunday and call themselves Catholics. It's the people who get married by a Catholic priest, have their kids baptized in church, go to confession and take communion on Sunday. Some are still able to send their kids to the rapidly-dwindling-in-number Catholic schools where they will receive an education that is FAR superior to the garbage that kids are fed in public schools. I don't know what is left of Catholic Charities today, but there was a time when the Catholic church aided and rescued millions of poor people in distress in America and around the world without fanfare or acclaim. THIS is the Catholic Church that is the foundation of Catholicism; the people who believe in the moral lessons explained in the catechism of their youth and carry that morality - and charity - forward into adult life.

The last time I checked, the Jesuit Order was involved in the profession of TEACHING in high schools and universities in America and abroad. If anyone has substantiated PROOF that they are training assassins, or were responsible for the planning and assassination of JFK, or are killing babies in Satanic rituals, or are raping children under the Vatican, or were behind the Bolshevik Revolution and the planned starvation of Ukrainian peasants in the 1930s, etc., etc., etc., then I'd love to see it and judge for myself of their guilt - according to the merits of their PROVEN transgressions.

Jude said (June 28, 2017):

Malachi Martin is an interesting case. He was a hero to self-styled traditionalist Catholics during the his latter years, and he wrote many books supposedly lamenting the takeover of the Church by NWO agents. Yet he was a Zionist agent himself. For me this is one of many indicators that the Catholic traditionalist movement has itself been coopted by New World Order agents.

The role of the so called trads is to give right-wing cover to the anti-Catholic hate campaigns of the secular media - especially when it comes to clerical sexual abuse. Most trads promote this hate campaign under the pretext that anything that damages the reputation of the post-Vatican II Church vindicates the tradtionalist position. Tellingly the vast majority of these same trads ridicule as wacky conspiracy theorists those who present compelling evidence of paedophile rings in the secular establishment. They conform exactly to Lenin's idea of controlled opposition.

Connie said (June 28, 2017):

Like millions of Catholics, I left the Church in disgust, but then returned after 30 years (count 'em) once I was able to sort things out.

The real threat to the Church are the rank and file Catholics who oppose, undermine, or radically reinterpret Church teaching, which are MOST of them, and that includes both liberals AND conservatives.

The Church will shrink in the coming years. The median age of US Catholics is now 60. Yet Jesus promised the gates of hell shall not prevail against it, in Matthew 16:18.

Andrew said (June 28, 2017):

Excellent posting. Henry. And thank you for Compton's book.

Which is why I say that the faith of the Hebrew Judeans aka Israelites is the traditional Roman Catholic Faith.

To these great men who gave their life to me so that I can receive salvation I will be forever greatful. Recall that Judeans didn't want heathens inside their camp. Saint Peter advised otherwise. His orders came from Jesus Christ. That's why I am an ethnic Roman Catholic. Just like you should be. And I think secretly are.
Nothing wrong calling yourself a Hebrew Judean. But as builders of the true faith of Christ who is Lord God you must "passover"

I pray that you do.

Tom said (August 23, 2008):

I was fascinated by your piece on the Church, "Is the Pope a Catholic?" I even printed out a couple of sections of Piers Compton's book. To read the whole thing requires, I suspect, a younger man than I am. I have something like the same feeling about it that I do about the Protocols, which I lately assayed again and have got through about 6 protocols. Both books make horrid reading. Is the world really so awful or, rather, are there such awful people in it? I fear the answer is yes to both questions. But it is also true that God is in his heaven and all's well with the world. The present mess will not perdure, that we can be sure of. It may last longer than I do. (I am 85.)

I speak as a Christian, Catholic variety, very much more certain that the Christ is the Spirit or Self that the Upanishads (I know them in Yeats's translation ) speak of than I am of anything about any of the Popes. Alice Hildebrandt used to tell Catholic audiences of the reply of the Vatican Secty of State (or at least some biggie) who accompanied the then Pope to Paris to meet with Napoleon, Emperor of All at that moment, who was capable of summoning the Pope from Rome as he had just done. Nappy was in an imperial mood and told the Pope he had two weeks to think over a pact Napoleon wanted signed turning God knows what powers over the Church to him, the Rightful Ruler of Everything, etc. Nap came back in two weeks to get his answer. The Secty of State responded the Pope had not signed the document and wouldn't. Nap was furious and said he would destroy the Church. The Secty of State said, "Sire, if all the priests, and nuns, and bishops and cardinals and popes have in 1800 years been unable to destroy the Church, what makes you think you can? Nap's reply not on record. If wrecking the Church means wrecking the Lord Christ, the Word of God, the "light that lighteth everyman that cometh into the world," then it won't happen. An impossibility. I'd stake my life on that. All manner of real estate may get smashed as assorted creeps muscle up, even perhaps the Sistine Chapel, etc., but that in no way would diminish the Christ. All the Mammonites and Luciferians in the world can rage and tear; they do so in vain. I cannot even guess when and how they will learn that their acts are folly, but folly it is.

I liked Tony B's comment: revolutionary (usurious) capitalism (what Lenin called finance capitalism) is the particular source of all the modern craziness and of the gross power of the bankers, led by the Rothschilds, the City of London, and all the rest. It is the absolute dominance of the money power that is now being shown up as fatal to the entire human race. We've got a wrecked planet, every dog biting every other, the great mass of people shoved down by the arrogant rich. What we are witnessing now is a replay on a vaster scale of the 1930s: money withdrawn from circulation, prices of everything rising, and politics rigged to crush the poor and enrich the few, while the police are being instructed as to what is expected of them if the "people" should begin to cut up. Prisons aplenty and mirabile dictu prisons are now a profitable private enterprise. So it should all work smoothly according to plan, but it won't. Or I'm a monkey's uncle. What can we do about it? Damn all—just wait and watch and train to eat beans (if any are available).

Vatican 1 said (August 22, 2008):

Dear Henry

we have not had a Catholic pope since 1958. If I have anything to add to the discussion then you can see it on

It should be plain to all Catholics that we have had antipopes for fifty years now.

However, for the majority God has blinded their hearts just as he blinded the Jews.

What we are now witnessing in the Catholic Church is Israel (old) versus Israel (new)

Good luck and may God lead you into the truth to be found only in the eclipsed Catholic Church

Louis said (August 21, 2008):

Hello Henry, I am a regular reader of your articles, appreciate your efforts and opinions, but must point out an error you posted concerning Catholic teaching concerning ( posted 2-22-04 revised 8-19-08-on RENSE) Masonery; it has never been permitted or approved to belong to Masonery. see below-from a web search of the Vatican archives Also, I have seen THE picture of Pope John II ,the woman and child---it is cropped from a larger picture including the woman's husband. They are all on picnic together at a park. other than these errors,a compelling article. I hope that you will correct these misconceptions, when you see that I am correct.The Catholic Church is under terrible attack from many sides; and I hope that you, in seeking the Truth, may wish to avoid spreading errors. May God Bless you and keep you safe.



That pic didn't look like JP was a family friend.

Salman said (August 21, 2008):

A Catholic?

Hell no, he's a Jew according to the Halakha since his momma Emily Katz was Jewish - and so is Hillary Clinton - which makes Chelsea Clinton Jewish - that is why these two satanic Jews wear the upside down AND broken cross !!! Please post this when you get it...thanks a lot for the revelations about the Pop!!!

and google Hillary Rodomski (Hillary's real name) - she' s Jewish...and Bill Clinton's Grandpa's line may be Jewish as well (some say he's a hidden bastard son of Rockefeller/Rogdenfeller)...u can fill in the gaps perhaps!

Brother Nathaniel said (August 21, 2008):

Mr. Makow,

Thank you having written what you did but satanism has been resident in the roman catholic organization from inception. It does not now and has followed Biblical doctrine for thousands of years. Any Protestant, who knows his history, will tell you this straight up. To say that it was taken over satanists only in recent history would be to diminish its centuries of murderous history.

Below is some background on the reality of the roman catholic organization for it is not a/the church, the mother church or any branch of the true church. It is a self-confessed nation state and has been one for tens of centuries. Nation states cannot be part of the Body of Christ.



Bro, Then how do you explain why so many Popes and Cardinals opposed Freemasonry, and Freemasonry and its financial backers in organized Jewry felt the necessity to take it over?

Anthony said (August 20, 2008):

There can be no doubt that one of Freemasonry's main aims was (and still is) the destruction of the Catholic Church, The Permanent Instruction of the Alta Vendita certainly confirms this fact. There is also little doubt that the 'spirit' of the 2nd Vatican Council was 'Masonic' in essence and witnessed a sudden decline in the strength and solidarity of the Church. The amount of priests and nuns who left the Church in the subsequent years (particularly in the West) was frightening and the Church is still yet to recover. One can also be certain that Freemasons have become Bishops and perhaps even Cardinals of the Church, but to boldly suggest that all the Popes since 1958 have been Freemasons is an outrageous statement to make, a statement made with very little evidence. I will grant you there is much speculation whether or not these Popes were Masons, but I am more inclined to think that they were (and still are) duped by a group of Masons within the Church itself, a group who have become a very powerful force.

Anyone can read a book and draw certain conclusions, but I would have thought that your investigative skills ran a bit deeper than that Henry.



The Caholic Church is not my specialty so I rely on traditional Catholics. This book fits the pattern of subversion we see everywhere so i think it credible.


Christine said (August 20, 2008):

Thanks for this article. Benedict Ratzinger et al have denied key doctrines of the Catholic religion. In Ratzinger's case, he has denied the Resurrection of Jesus Christ and transubstantiation.

The definition of a Catholic is a baptized Christian who believes in all of the teachings of the Catholic Church. When a man stops believing in the teachings of the Catholic Church and says so as Ratzinger has done, he is no longer Catholic because he is no longer a member of the Catholic Church. The term for this is "automatic excommunication."

It should be obvious to anyone that a man cannot legitimately hold office in an organization that has expelled him. But what happens when the organization has been infiltrated by its enemies and is being driven around by them like a child on a tricycle?

Thus we find the situation in the putative Catholic Church nowadays. Bella Dodd, the former legal counsel to the Communist Party USA testified before the US Congress in the 1950s. She said that hundreds of Communists had infiltrated the Catholic Church, and were prepared to create a new "church," one that appeared Catholic, but was not, in actual substance, Catholic.

St. Francis of Assisi (d.1226) predicted that the Catholic Church would have an uncanonically elected Pope who would cause a great schism. It would seem that the great Saint's prediction has come true. See:

Let us pray for the restoration of the True Faith.

Cindy said (August 20, 2008):

Very good article on the state of the church - what about the latest rage 'benny' - he is like a celebrity that the mindless are sucking right up to and he is also very good close friends with GWB. Kind of creepy when they met in that tower together in the vatican recently. That special chummy meeting when BENNY visited the US verified a lot of what you wrote here AND the degree to which it has advanced. It also is beginning to clarify a lot of the Jesuit puzzles...

Don said (August 20, 2008):


just read your latest article. damn, im a catholic, and i do not care what anyone else's religion is, but i do like being catholic. and i do go to church, but not so much cause the bible tells me to go, but more out of respect for god.

but i do like going to church, and i kept thinking, the church is so powerful, the pope has to basically be just a poltician at this point. but damn, bought and owned by the bad guys? that sucks.

anyways, great article, i do enjoy reading your stuff. i emailed you a few weeks ago about the rottschilds owning rooters, if you recal.

i just wish people would let other people live and mind their own business. i just want to work and have fun, i wish everyone was just worried about that. stealing from someone is not fun, so i have no clue why bad guys of all kinds think its the way to go. i assume, the mugger some poor guy meets in the middle of the night, is no different than these elitists, only difference? the elitisits have the power to whack a whole bunch more people.

no difference between a common thug criminal and a corporate prez. they must think EXACTLY the same, you know? but the thug does not command an army of millions.

see ya

Matthew said (August 20, 2008):

You are discovering that there is a crisis in the Catholic Church, something that some Catholics have been aware of for a long time.
There is a movement in the Church to oppose Communism, the New World Order, the evils of the modern world, etc. and stick to traditional Catholic teaching in these areas. They call themselves "Traditional Catholics" and I am one of them.

We attend Mass in Latin (not in the vernacular, which started in 1969, right after Vatican Council II) and many of us don't watch TV. We dress more modestly (especially the women) and don't use birth control, etc. We tend to have larger families (7 or more children is not uncommon).

The essence of the Catholic Faith is to hold to tradition -- Scripture and Tradition are the two sources of dogma for a Catholic. The Catholic Faith is traditional by nature -- a bishop consecrates another bishop, passing down the power he received from his predecessor, all the way back to Christ Himself. A bishop's main duty is to defend the Catholic Faith. Times may change, but God doesn't change and truth doesn't change.

Robert said (August 20, 2008):

As a Catholic, even before I learned what had really happened to the Catholic Church before and since 1958, I did not share everyone's enthusiasm for John Paul II. John XXIII and Paul VI were outrageous at times, but, oh, the beloved John Paul II, you're sure to draw readers' ire criticizing him, Henry. I was always troubled by his popularity, by the way the modern world embraced him. As far as I'm concerned, a modern pope who was really doing his job right would quickly earn the modern world's enmity. The enemy infiltrators have Catholics right where they want them - over a barrel, the majority of the flock badly fooled, the True Church in eclipse, the worst crisis in the Church's history. Most Catholics tend to think that to suggest there is not a legitimate pope in the Chair of Peter is to deny the truth of Christ's promise of a Church that would prevail against and survive all onslaughts. Christ did not guarantee there would not be anti - popes and other difficulties in maintaining the true line of succession. There have been a good many throughout history, John F.

Gregory said (August 20, 2008):

I couldn't help but notice the utter loyalty that John F (below) has to the Catholic church without any discernment in pursuing the truth no matter what that leads to. To even question the idea that the Catholic church leaders are corrupt is to be naive and fail to fulfill a persons duty to God and Jesus Christ.

I personally come from a family whose ancestor is a Catholic Church Historian, Fr. John Laux. His books are used all around the world in high schools and colleges to teach the true history of the Catholic church, including the many times when the leaders at the top in the church were corrupt and pagan. I challenge folks like John F to get ahold of a few books by Fr. John Laux and read them as they will surely see the harm done by their automatic loyalty to corrupt church officials who have forgotten about God's will and the gospel that Jesus Christ preached. Ever since Vatican II, there has not been authentic Catholic leadership in the United States and in the nations of Europe. Vatican II was blasphemy and a major rebellion towards God by the leaders who were in the church through infiltration with other motives other than having valid vocations in service to God and Christ.

Several months back I wrote you an e-mail praising your truthfulness and said I considered you a spiritual brother. Sadly, I read yesterday an article of yours about several past popes and their supposed connection to all sorts of evils, including communism, masonry, etc. Although the church has always had it serious sinners, to smear Pope John Paul II, who largely helped defeat communism, and Pope Paul VI, who correctly linked artificial birth control with abortion and euthanasia, now causes me to question your judgement. Former Catholics are not a good source to quote. Through their own free choice they have left the church Christ established, showing their ignorance of, or disdain for, the truth.
I sincerely hope that you will dig a little deeper.


John, This account fits the pattern. Haven't you wondered why the Catholic Church isn't a stronger force for good? -Henry

In your latest you have the paragraph:

"In 1783, the Illuminati assumed control of much of Freemasonry, which secretly coordinated the revolutionary movement (Liberalism, Socialism, and Communism.) According to David Bay, "secret societies like the "Skull and Bones" have always functioned as Satan's church, as the only way to pass the baton from generation to generation.""

It was actually in 1717 that the English Freemasonry lodge was taken over (bought and paid for) by the organization previously known as "The Mysterious Force," which had as its objective the destruction of Christ and Christianity from the time of King Herrod Agrippa, less that 50 years after Christ was crucified. This force is today the controlling force of all masonry, including the Illuminati.

Liberalism, socialism and communism are all driven by the ism you failed to mention, the worst of the lot: revolutionary capitalism. Capitalism first showed its lack of any kind of humanity in the English "industrial revolution" wherein it ground the descendants of Catholic "Merrie ol' England" into the dirt, rancor, smoke and health destroying prisons of murderous machinery for less than living wages.
None of the other isms ever get beyond coffee house radical blather unless and until financed by capitalists.

Capitalism has supplanted free enterprise, which is 180 degrees its opposite but which the people of the "west" have been induced to believe is the same thing. Libertarians especially, worship capitalism yet most of them would tell you they are for free enterprise. They are wrong; they couldn't be more wrong if they tried.

Capitalists have redefined economics to serve themselves. Under true economics (true free enterprise follows true economics) finance SERVES industry so that industry can SERVE the family so that the family can have the means to properly SERVE God. It's easy to see that right economic order has been turned upside down wherein families frantically serve industry as a means of bare survival while industry serves its debt master, finance, and finance serves no one, especially God.


Thanks Tony - You are probably right. I was just providing the version given by Piers Compton.

Thanks for this letter.

No, he isn't Catholic. He is "Catholic" - like the rest of the novus ordo Church - they love the gospel of feel-goodism and one-world religion(If Christ wanted to preach feel-goodism He could have sent Oprah Winfrey in His place). Catholics went practically underground after Vatican II(e.g. the SSPX); "Catholics" remain in Rome. Most "Catholics" have no idea what they believe in! Here's the kicker though - none of the documents and changes of Vatican II are dogmatic. They do not have to be followed, they are not infallible(unbeknownst to practically everybody).

The one thing I've been trying to figure out about the "popes" since Vatican II is whether they are themselves conspiring against the Church or they just happened to be the suckers that were duped into modernist/liberalist ideas and truly think they are doing some sort of good. If you remember the Carbonari's Alta Vendita's Set of Permanent Instruction - the very blueprint of infiltrating the Church - they did not want a Freemason Pope. They just wanted a pope "infected with our ideas".

Its almost enough for one to want to lose faith altogether! Let me tell you how hard it is just trying to get married or go to mass in this clusterf**k(thank God there are still masses in the Tridentine rite around). I'll know they truly mean war when they stop allowing the Eucharist in mass(they've practically done every other abomination) - Daniel 12:11 And from the time when the continual sacrifice shall be taken away, and the abomination unto desolation shall be set up, there shall be a thousand two hundred ninety days. Oh and guess what novus ordo "Catholics" call people who attend the old mass?? "Radical Traditionalists"! - like it's a terrorist group or something! A family member of mine sent me a book about staying away from "radical traditionalism" !! I couldn't believe it(well, I could believe it - some of my family practically worship John Paul II)

One of the comforts I have in my faith is that a Freemason cannot be the pope, nor can a manifest heretic, nor can anyone in a secret society - without incurring automatic excommunication - so if any "Pope" fits this description - he's not really the Pope, is he? There's difference between a Catholic Pope and a "Catholic" "Pope". And to conclude my angry rant against the "Catholic" "Church" are my favorite quotes:

"...that it is necessary to obey a Pope in all things as long as he does not go against the universal custom of the Church, but should he go against the universal customs of the Church, he need not be followed" -Pope Innocent III

"Peter has no need of our lies or flattery. Those who blindly and indiscriminately defend every decision of the supreme Pontiff are the very ones who do most to undermine the authority of the Holy See- they destroy instead of strengthening its foundations." Melchior Cano, theologian of the Council of Trent

"We affirm without hesitation that all the striving of men will be vain if they leave out the Church." Pope Leo XIII, Rerum Novarum #16

God help us and the true Church of Christ.

My understanding of this is that according to author Eustice Mullins, also quoted by Fritz Springmeier, is that the Pope in the year 1818, borrowed sums of money from the Rothschilds. And by 1825, seven years later, they had a "working relationship." About this time, the Catholic Church stopped its active persecution in murdering Protestants, and started the Rothschild "ecumenical" dialogue with Protestants instead. The Rothschilds in turn, promoted "futurist' interpretations of the Book of Revelation devised by Catholic Jesuits, and they soon expanded on the topic by introducing the Doctrine of Dispensationalism.

The Illuminati, or Rothschilds, used "dual-loyalty" agents, John Nelson Darby (according to Dr. John Coleman, an agent for the British Royal Family posing as a Christian missionary to China, and later Evangelical minister, who received financial backing to start the "Brethren Movement" to espouse Dispensational views ), and later, in the United States, C.I. Schofield, to introduce these views and subvert evangelical Christianity accordingly.

Now all of Evangelical and Fundamental Christianity embraces these false views, and popular Christianity and its followers are effectually neutered, muffled and brainwashed, under the control of Illuminati agentur and influence. Practically all the "leaders" of Evangelical Christianity are Illuminati "brethren" ! Father Malachi Martin was close to exposing the Satanic Connections in the Vatican, but died suddenly.

His protege, William H. Kennedy, wrote a book that exposed Illuminati "Frankists" in the sex scandals of the Catholic Church, called "Lucifer's Lodge." "Frankism" is the hidden religion of the Illuminati. The sex abuse and perversion problem is greater than ever, despite Papal apologies and a billion dollars already paid out in legal settlements, to the victims of this abuse. Newsweek Magazine, just a few years ago, estimated that the Catholic Priesthood in the United States was 50% "homosexual." Others have estimated it to be as much as 2/3 to 3/4 of those ranks.

President John Kennedy remarked, "We are opposed around the world by a monolithic, ruthless conspiracy." Despite the overwhelming control being exhibited by the Illuminati, the Bible predicts it will fail. Although a small minority is crying out against the Illuminati with Truth, it is not enough.

There must be a Moving of God's Spirit to go with the Truth to finally expose and destroy this Satanic Cabal. The Apostle James foretells this in his Epistle. In the interim, we still must tell the truth until Spiritual Forces arrive with the Power of God's Spirit to completely turn this tide in an unequivocal manner.

The Illuminati is a spiritual problem, that can only be answered with a spiritual solution.

John said (August 19, 2008):

After Malachi Martin had written his last book "Windswept House", he had gone to Rome to encourage JPII to stop the destruction of the Church, and face to face he was told: "Look, I am not of the same faith as you!" (In my words, "Get off my back, I'm not even Catholic.") This was reported by Malachi's close friend Rev. Prof. Rama Coomaraswamy,M.D., author of the signal work on true Catholicism vs the revolution, "The Destruction of the Christian Tradition."

P.S. Fr. Malachi was buried from our chapel ----while---was still alive and fighting the apostate church, which unfortunately took over the property and dispossesed most of the congregation that built it through the action of the board after his death.
