On the Kinship between the Catholic Church and Adolf Hitler

The following documentation has been collected by A Phil-for-an-ill Blog.
This appendix serves to present evidence showing the link between the Papacy and Nazi Germany. Although the Roman Church used to be more overt about its collaboration with the Nazis, today it is of course a no no to be associated in any promotional way with an empire as despicable and sinister as Nazi Germany. However the available evidence leaves little room for controversy. For example, the existence of a concordat closed between Nazi Germany and the Papacy (the Reichskonkordat) cannot be refuted.
“The hegemony of Protestant Prussia had to be prevented and as the Reich was to dominate Europe—to avert the Germans’ federalism—a Reich had to be reconstituted in which the Catholics would be masters” Edmond Paris – The Secret History of the Jesuits
“Thus the Catholic Church is more secure than ever. It can be predicted that, as passing phenomena vanish away, she willremain as a beacon light amid these vanishing elements, attracting blind adherents in ever-increasing numbers.” Adolf Hitler quoted in Leo Lehmann’s – Behind the Dictators, p26.
“It was of interest to me that the Pope said to me on this occasion that Germany must become the sword of the Catholic Church. I remarked that the old Roman Empire of the German nation no longer existed, and that conditions had changed. Buthe stuck to his words.” Kaiser Wilhelm II on Pope Leo XIII, quoted in Leo Lehmann’s – Behind the Dictators p22
Another well informed person, the mainspring of the pact between the Holy See and Berlin and the pope’s secret chamberlain, Franz von Papen, was even more explicit: “The Third Reich is the first world power which not only acknowledges but also puts into practice the high principles of the papacy”. Robert d’Harcourt of the French Academy: “Franz von Papen, l’homme a tout faire” L’Aube, 3rd of October 1946) Edmond Paris – The Secret History of the Jesuits

But let us see, first, how an especially “authorised” personality, Franco, Knight of the Order of Christ, expressly confirmed the collusion between the Vatican and the nazis. According to “Reforme”, this is what the press of the Spanish dictator (Franco) published on the 3rd of May 1945, the day of Hitler’s death:
“Adolf Hitler, son of the Catholic Church, died while defending Christianity. It is therefore understandable that words cannot be found to lament over his death, when so many were found to exalt his life. Over his mortal remains stands his victorious moral figure. With the palm of the martyr, God gives Hitler the laurels of Victory”
“Reforme”, 21st of July 1945; Edmond Paris – The Secret History of the Jesuits

In the February 29, 1929 edition of the Völkischer Beobachter (official newspaper of the Nazi Party), Adolf Hitler published an article on the new Lateran Treaty between Mussolini’s fascist government and the Vatican. According to Hitler, this treaty should demonstrate to the world that not only are fascism and Christianity not polar opposites, but that they are in fact close kin which should be working together:
“The fact that the Curia is now making its peace with Fascism shows that the Vatican trusts the new political realities far more than did the former liberal democracy with which it could not come to terms.

…The fact that the Catholic Church has come to an agreement with Fascist Italy …proves beyond doubt that the Fascist world of ideas is closer to Christianity than those of Jewish liberalism or even atheistic Marxism, to which the so-called Catholic Center Party sees itself so closely bound, to the detriment of Christianity today and our German people.”

[...] During the same speech, Hitler further criticizes Germany’s Catholic Center Party for maintaining its support for democracy:

“By trying to preach that democracy is still in the best interests of German Catholics, the Center Party …is placing itself in stark contradiction to the spirit of the treaty signed today by the Holy See.”

For their part, the best theological pens were busy demonstrating the similarity between the Catholic and Nazi doctrines. And, for that work, the sons of Loyola were the busiest. As an example, let us see how Michaele Schmaus, Jesuit theologian, presented to the public a series of studies on this subject:
“Empire and Church” is a series of writings which should help the building up of the Third Reich as it unites a national-socialist state to Catholic-christianity… The national-socialist movement is the most vigorous and massive protest against the spirit of the 19th and 20th centuries… A compromise between the Catholic faith and liberal thinking is impossible… Nothing is more contrary to Catholicism than democracy…
The reawakened meaning of “strict authority” opens up again the way to the real interpretation of ecclesiastical authority… The mistrust of liberty is founded on the Catholic doctrine of original sin… The national-socialist Commandments and those of the Catholic Church have the same aim…”
“Begegnungen zwichen Katholischen Christentum und nazional-sozialitischer Weltanchaunung”, by Michaele Schmaus, professor at the Faculty of Theology of Munich. (Aschendorf, Munster 1933). Edmond Paris – The Secret History of the Jesuits

“Hitler, Goebbels, Himmler and most members of the party’s “old guard” were Catholics”, wrote M. Frederic Hoffet. “It was not by accident that, because of its chiefs’ religion, the National-socialist government was the most Catholic Germany ever had… This kinship between National-socialism and Catholicism is most striking if we study closely the propaganda methods and the interior organisation of the party. On that subject, nothing is more instructive than Joseph Goebbel’s works. He had been brought up in a Jesuit collegeand was a seminarist before devoting himself to literature and politics…
Every page, every line of his writings recall the teaching of his masters; so he stresses obedience… the contempt for truth… “Some lies are as useful as bread!” he proclaimed by virtue of a moral relativism extracted from Ignatius of Loyola’s writings…” Frederic Hoffet: “L’lmperialisme protestant” (Flammarion, Paris 1948, pp.172 ss.) Edmond Paris – The Secret History of the Jesuits

A Cardinal marches with the German Nazis (Source: A Moral Reckoning: The Role of the Catholic Church in the Holocaust and Its Unfulfilled Duty of Repair by Daniel Jonah Goldhagen.) There is a dispute as to whether the high-ranking Catholic clergyman marching between rows of SA men at a Nazi rally in Munich, pictured above, is Munich’s Cardinal Michael von Faulhaber or papal nuncio Archbishop Cesare Orsenigo.

Nazi-Fascism is but the outcome of events in which the Catholic Church has played a decisive role for centuries. He says that National Socialism is the “fulfilment of destiny,” and goes on to say:
“It was born originally out of the most profound tendencies of the epoch, of which it is the crowning act. Undoubtedly, we now have the right to speak of an essential transformation, of the birth of a veritable new era, the accomplishments of which will remain, A new epoch has opened which will serve religion and the Church, and which will be extraordinarily well armed to carry on the fight against atheism.“
This, and much more, is quoted by Bishop Hudal to prove thefundamental identity of the aims and purposes of Catholicism and Nazi-Socialism. The Catholic bishops in the United States cannot afford to be as frank in supporting Nazi-Fascist ideology in this country. They cannot but admit, however, that their fellow-bishops in Nazi-Fascist countries have been correct in their analysis of the benefits which this anti-liberal and anti-democratic ideology will bring to the organization of Roman Catholicism.

The Jesuits had preached their Crusade for over fifty years. Their chosen vessel was now the master of the Third Reich. Imbibed with hatred for Jews, Prussian Lutherans, English Anglicans, Dutch Reformed and Slavic Orthodox peoples, the Papal Crusade would begin in 1939. Under the banner of the sauvastika (used by Freemasonic Kipling on title pages of his works, its right-handed “crampons” denoting the autumnal sun), “Operation Barbarossa” (named after the German Emperor leading the Pope’s Third Crusade) would be unleashed against Rome’s hated rival, the Slavic Orthodox Peoples. Like Frederick I, Hitler would in fact be the Holy Roman Emperor, King of Germany and King of Italy. That Crusade against the Orthodox would be commenced from two fronts: Hitler would be the “hammer,” aided by Islam, and Stalin would be the “sickle,” aided by the Jesuitruled, pro-communist US and UK. When finished the Crusader would turn on Germany fulfilling his purpose of destroying apostate Protestant Prussia!

Their first main effort was to employ Black Pope Vladimir (Wlodimir) Ledochowski’s strategy of bringing the Catholic nations of central and eastern Europe together into a pan-German federation. To head the federation, Ledochowski required a charismatic leader charged with subduing the communistic Soviet Union on the east, Protestant Prussia, Protestant Great Britain, and republican France on the west,Ledochowski chose the Catholic militarist Adolph Hitler, who told Bishop Bernind of Osnabruch in 1936 that:
There was [no] fundamental difference between National Socialism and the Catholic Church. Had not the church, he argued, looked upon Jews as parasites and shut them into ghettos? “I am only doing,” he boasted, “what the church has done for fifteen hundred years, only more effectively.” Hitler’s Pope – The Secret History of Pius XII, by John Cornwell.

Above, Cardinal Secretary of State, Eugenio Pacelli (later to become Pope Pius XII) signs the Concordat between Nazi Germany and the Vatican at a formal ceremony in Rome on 20 July 1933. Nazi Vice-Chancellor Franz von Papen sits at the left, Pacelli in the middle, and the Rudolf Buttmann sits at the right. The Concordat effectively legitimized Hitler and the Nazi government to the eyes of Catholicism, Christianity, and the world.
