"Russia will spread her errors." --Our Lady of Fatima

My article: "Marxism Has Nothing To Do With Christianity" via @CatholicRegistr

Judas was a Marxist. He pretended to care about the poor, but it was really about a money and power grab. And then he betrayed the Prince of Peace. John 12:5-6; Luke 22:48

--ACTION ITEM: Pray the Rosary every day as Our Lady of Fatima asked.

--ACTION ITEM: Subscribe to (hard copy newspaper) and get free updates into your email inbox. (I find ET the most helpful of all independent news outlets right now.) The Epoch Times is from anti-Communist Chinese dissidents (Falun Gong) with a diverse editorial staff. Their motto is "Truth and Tradition" and they love the USA. Top-notch journalism covering all kinds of subjects. Very positive and uplifting. They explain how communism infiltrates everywhere. Great articles for parents, great stuff on the arts, health, finances, etc. Even syndicated cartoons!

FREE at  One cannot be a Christian and a Marxist-Communist-Socialist.

--“Revolution” by the Beatles: 

You say you want a REVOLUTION
Well, you know
We all want to change the world
You tell me that it's evolution
Well, you know
We all want to change the world

But when you talk about DESTRUCTION
Don't you know that you can count me out
Don't you know it's gonna be
All right, all right, all right

You say you got a real solution
Well, you know
We'd all love to see the plan
You ask me for a contribution
Well, you know
We're doing what we can

But if you want money for people with minds that HATE
All I can tell is brother you have to wait
Don't you know it's gonna be
All right, all right, all right

You say you'll change the CONSTITUTION
Well, you know
We all want to change your head
You tell me it's the institution
Well, you know
You better free your mind instead

But if you go carrying pictures of CHAIRMAN MAO
You ain't going to make it with anyone anyhow
Don't you know it's gonna be
All right, all right, all right

--“The School of Darkness” by Bella Dodd—An American Communist operative in NYC in the 1920’s-1950’s, Bella left the Party disillusioned and was brought back to her Catholic Faith through the instrumentation of Bishop Fulton Sheen. She testified before Congress and revealed the infiltration of Communism into politics, teachers’ unions and Catholic seminaries.

--“Against All Hope” by Armando Valladares—thrown in prison for life at 23yo for casually commenting at work that he doesn’t like Communism (in Fidel Castro’s Communist Cuba)

--“The Drama of Atheistic Humanism” by Henri de Lubac—Amazon review by Tina Bell: To look at Nietzsche, Comte, and Marx through the eyes of this genius is the best way to think about what Atheism is, and why it became the religion of the 19th century. The book will point you to Dostoevsky if you are looking for the Christian response. De Lubac doesn't waste his time on arguments against atheist humanism ---arguments will not win this fight. As a Roman Catholic it occurred to me that the answer to atheistic ideologies is not a Christian ideology (if such were possible). This is a humanism invented by often tormented and arrogant men who saw a real problem--rationalism--and found Christianity wanting. Their new religions required a denial of God, and the assent of the mind to their man made creeds. I have to say, how like men. The real answer? The unvarnished, real answer? If you want a book, read The Devils by Fyodor Dostoevsky. But there's a better one, and she appeared at Fatima during the early part of the 20th century.
