How the Catholic Church was infiltrated by communists


Jesus warned that evil would attempt to infiltrate and damage the church from within. He described them as wolves in sheep’s clothing.

And in their book, The Devil and Bella Dodd: One Woman’s Struggle Against Communism and Her Redemption, authors Dr. Paul Kengor and Mary Nicholas, MD, described the work of Bella Dodd who was responsible for planting wolves in Catholic seminaries around the world, LifeSite News reports.

Bella Dodd (1904 to 1969) was a prominent Communist and full time employeee the New York Teachers Union. She became leader of the Communist Party of America in 1943 and has been described as “one of Communism’s most strident voices” in the US>

In the later 1920s, Moscow’s Communist Party sent directives to its operatives around the world commissioning them to plant communists within Roman Catholic seminaries and dioceses with the plan to destroy the church from within.

According to the authors, Dodd claimed to have successfully planted 1,200 communists in Catholic seminaries around the world. By the time Dodd was done, four of them had risen in the ranks and were serving as Cardinals in Rome.

The book claims that the Communist Party had also directed operatives to infiltrate the mainline Protestant churches in the same fashion.

In the end, despite all the evil she had done, Bella Dodd converted to Catholicism and in 1949 was officially kicked out of the Communist Party. In the following years, Dodd worked to expose the evils of Communism.

But the damage she did in the early years is still being felt today, as in 2020, Pope Francis, the leader of the world’s 1.2 billion Catholics, called for an end to capitalism and the right to own property.

The Daily Mail provides more details of the encyclical the Pope gave on Oct 4, 2020:

Pope Francis says the coronavirus pandemic has proven that the ‘magic theories’ of market capitalism have failed and that the world needs a new type of politics that promotes dialogue and solidarity. […]

He rejected the concept of an absolute right to property for individuals, stressing instead the ‘social purpose’ and common good that must come from sharing the Earth’s resources.
