UKRAINE, THE CHURCH & THE NAZIS - Part 2
Updated: Feb 11
PREDICTS A RELIGIOUS 'GENOCIDE'
"And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed." Revelation 13:15
To "speak" is to legislate
To "cause" is to enforce by law
This website has identified the following prophetic symbols:
The feet of Iron & Clay of Daniel 2 is Papal Rome - a union of church & state
The Little Horn of Daniel chapter 7 is Papal Rome
The Little Horn of Daniel chapter 8 is Rome in its Pagan and Papal phases
The King of the North of Daniel chapter 11:31-45 is Papal Rome
The first Beast of Revelation chapter 13:1-10 is Papal Rome
The 2nd Beast of Rev 13:11-17 is Protestant USA - a union of church & state
The USA will form an image of the first beast (Rome) - a Church / State union
The USA will legislate THE MARK of the Beast - enforced Sunday Blue Laws.
The USA will pass a death decree on those who refuse THE BEAST'S MARK
The woman on the beast with 7 heads & 10 horns of Rev 17 is Papal Rome
PAPAL ROME PERSECUTED CHRISTIANS FOR MORE THAN 1000 YEARS
Daniel 7:25 And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time. cf Daniel 11 study verses 30-35
From the transition of Pagan Rome to Papal Rome in Daniel 11:30/31 , we see the persecution of God's people by Papal Rome in verses 32 to 35 even to the "time of the end" in 1798 when the persecutions ceased as Rome receives its deadly wound from The French.
Daniel chapter 7 and Revelation chapter 13 speak of the same power which persecuted and killed and will kill Christians again.
Revelation 13:5-7,15 "And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months. And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven. And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations." "...that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed."
Blasphemy is when one claims to be God - John 10:33
Blasphemy is when one claims to be able to forgive sins - Mark 2:7
Papal Rome align with both these characteristics
42 months is symbolic of 1260 years in Bible prophecy
Papal Rome persecuted God's people for 1260 years
The historical record is there for all, hence the apologies by Papal Rome for its past atrocities.
"NEVER AGAIN," HE SAID
[In 2000, Pope John Paul II began a new a new era in the church’s relationship to its history when he donned mourning garments to apologize for millennia of grievous violence and persecution — from the Inquisition to a wide range of sins against Jews, nonbelievers, and the indigenous people of colonized lands — and sought pardon “for the divisions among Christians, for the use of violence that some have committed in the service of truth, and for attitudes of mistrust and hostility assumed towards followers of other religions.”
“Never again,” he said.]
But the apologies continue even as the atrocities continue.

"Pope Francis apologized on April 1, 2022, to First Nations, Inuit and Métis delegations, acknowledging the harm done by residential schools in Canada and marking a crucial step in the church admitting its role in the abuse of Indigenous communities and children. Yet this apology, as important as it is, raises questions about what it means when a pope apologizes.
As a Catholic theologian who studies church authority, I’ve observed how previous papal apologies can speak for the entire church and either deny or claim responsibility." Annie Selak Associate Director, Women's Center, Georgetown University
THE CATHOLIC CHURCH IN RWANDA WAS INVOLVED IN THE KILLING OF TUTSIS
Pope Francis has asked for "God's forgiveness" for the "sins and failings" of the Roman Catholic Church at the time of the Rwandan genocide.
Dozens of Catholic priests are believed to have been complicit in the killings of some 800,000 people by Hutu extremists in 1994.
Several massacres were carried out in churches where people sought sanctuary.
The Vatican has, until now, maintained that the Church as an institution bore no responsibility.
On Monday, Pope Francis conveyed his "profound sadness" for the "genocide against the Tutsi," the Vatican said in a statement.
He begged for God's forgiveness "for the sins and failings of the Church and its members" who, the statement said, had "succumbed to hatred and violence".
HISTORY TO BE REPEATED - THOSE WHO DO NOT REMEMBER THE PAST...
The prophecies of Daniel and Revelation predict a resurgence of Papal Rome's power and a return to its persecuting, murderous ways (Rev 13:3). It is in the DNA of the system after all the Dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority (Rev 13:2). And we know the Dragon is "that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan which deceiveth the whole world" (Rev 12:9)
Jesus said to the people of Israel, "Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it". John 8:44
Papal Rome was given its seat, power and great authority by the great dragon of Rev 12:9 - see (Rev 13:2)
The Devil is a murderer.
He is a liar and the father of lies.
He abode not in the truth.
There is no truth in him.
Pagan Rome killed Christians feeding them to the lions.
Papal Rome tortured and killed Christians during the inquisition leaving them to starve to death in dungeons and burning them at the stake, including women accused of being witches.
"KILL THEM ALL, GOD KNOWS HIS OWN."
THE ALBIGENSIAN CRUSADE.
Papal Rome did not care for its own Roman Catholic people during the crusade against the Albigenses (Cathars). The crusade's military commander was a priest, "Abbot Arnaud Amalric (Latin: Arnoldus Amalricus; died 1225) was a Cistercian abbot who played a prominent role in the Albigensian Crusade. It was reported that, prior to the massacre of Béziers, Amalric, when asked how to distinguish Cathars from Catholics, responded, "Kill them [all], for God knows which are His own." - Wikipedia
Amalric's own version of the siege, described in his letter to Pope Innocent III in August 1209, states:
While discussions were still going on with the barons about the release of those in the city who were deemed to be Catholics, the servants and other persons of low rank and unarmed attacked the city without waiting for orders from their leaders. To our amazement, crying "to arms, to arms!", within the space of two or three hours they crossed the ditches and the walls and Béziers was taken. Our men spared no one, irrespective of rank, sex or age, and put to the sword almost 20,000 people. After this great slaughter the whole city was despoiled and burnt ...
About thirteen years later Caesarius of Heisterbach relates this story about the massacre, with the papal legate quoted using the words Caedite eos. Novit enim Dominus qui sunt eius:
When they discovered, from the admissions of some of them, that there were Catholics mingled with the heretics they said to the abbot "Sir, what shall we do, for we cannot distinguish between the faithful and the heretics." The abbot, like the others, was afraid that many, in fear of death, would pretend to be Catholics, and after their departure, would return to their heresy, and is said to have replied "Kill them all for the Lord knoweth them that are His" (2 Tim. ii. 19) and so countless number in that town were slain.
The Albigensian Crusade was intended to eliminate Catharism, a religious movement denounced by the Catholic Church as heretical. Béziers was not a Cathar stronghold but, according to contemporary Catholic records, home to almost 20,000 baptised Catholics and just over 300 baptised Cathars. Presented with the difficulty of distinguishing Catholics from the Cathars, especially if individuals might misrepresent their own beliefs, the phrase indicated that God would judge those who were killed, and accordingly "sort" them into Heaven or Hell. Wikipedia
The Catholics killed almost 20,000 people in the city of Beziers which had a population of 23,000 including 20,000 catholics - so much for taking care of one's own people. The Catholic people are merely pawns in the hands of wicked men sitting in Rome.
PAPAL ROME, THE NAZIS & THE JESUITS
The Times of Israel.
"In a new report after decades of ambivalence, Germany’s council of Catholic bishops has finally admitted to the church’s complicity in the actions of the Nazi regime during World War II, The Times reported Friday.
The 23-page document by the council reportedly states, “Inasmuch as the bishops did not oppose the war with a clear ‘no,’ and most of them bolstered the [German nation’s] will to endure, they made themselves complicit in the war.”
"One Catholic Church official cited by The Times called the report a “confession of guilt” by the church."

"A crucial moment in Pius’ relationship with the Nazis arrived in 1933, when the then-cardinal spearheaded an agreement between the German Holy See and the Third Reich. As Robert A. Krieg wrote in Jesuit publication America magazine in 2003, this so-called “concordat” was “ambiguous in its day,” with Adolf Hitler treating it as a sign of international approval of the Nazi regime and the Vatican simply stating that it was made to protect the church’s interests.
POPE PIUS XII FAILS TO SPEAK UP ABOUT THE KILLING OF JEWS
Adopting a stance of official neutrality, the Vatican refused to yield to Allied pressure to speak out against the Nazis. And, since “[e]veryone wanted to claim the Pope was on their side, ... political leaders weren’t going to publicly chastise [him] or accuse him of cozying up to fascists or Nazis,” David I. Kertzer, author of The Pope and Mussolini: The Secret History of Pius XI and the Rise of Fascism in Europe, told Time’s Olivia B. Waxman in 2019.
"On September 18, 1942, Pius’ assistant, the future Pope Paul VI, received an eyewitness report of “incredible butchery” of Jews in Warsaw. One month prior, Ukrainian Archbishop Andrzej Szeptycki had delivered a similar report informing the pope of atrocities carried out in the Lviv Ghetto, reports Haaretz’s Ofer Aderet.
Soon after, the United States’ envoy to the Vatican asked if it could corroborate accounts of mass killings in Warsaw and Lviv. In response, Vatican Secretary of State Luigi Maglione reportedly stated, “I don’t believe we have information that confirms this serious news in detail.”
While sifting through the papers, the researchers also found a memo from a Vatican staffer that warned against believing the reports, dismissing these accounts on the grounds that Jews “easily exaggerate” and “Orientals”—a reference to Archbishop Sheptytsky—“are really not an example of honesty.”
"The memo was conspicuously absent from the 11-volume collection published by the Vatican in defense of Pius’ reputation, reports Religion News Service."
“This is a key document that has been kept hidden from us because it is clearly anti-Semitic and shows why Pius XII did not speak out against the Holocaust,” Wolf tells Catholic weekly Kirche + Leben, as quoted by Religion News Service.
[NPR's Sylvia Poggioli points out that "The Vatican's attempts to beatify him [Pope Pius XII] are stymied by still-vivid memories in Rome of his behavior toward the city's Jews during the Nazi occupation.
A plaque on the wall outside a military college in Rome recalls the roundup of 1,259 Jews. It reads: "On 16 October 1943 entire Jewish Roman families ripped from their homes by the Nazis were brought here and then deported to extermination camps. Of more than 1,000 persons, only 16 survived." The location is just 800 yards from St. Peter's Square — "under the pope's very windows," as Ernst von Weizsacker, then serving as Germany's ambassador to the Vatican, reported back to Hitler."
"Brown University's David Kertzer has written extensively about popes and Jews. He won the 2015 Pulitzer Prize for his book The Pope and Mussolini: The Secret History of Pius XI and the Rise of Fascism in Europe, about Pius XII's predecessor, and has reserved a desk in the Vatican archives for the next four months.
Kertzer says a lot is known about what Pius XII did. Much less is known about internal deliberations during the war years in the Vatican.
"We know [Pius XII] didn't take any public action," he says. "He didn't protest to Hitler. But who within the Vatican might have been urging him to do so? Who might have been advising him caution? That's the kind of thing I think we'll find out, or hope to find out about."]

POPE PIUS XII's AID SAYS JEWS AND UKRAINIANS ARE LIARS.
Pope Pius XII's World War II material in the Vatican archives has recently been made accessible to scholars by Pope Francis.
" Seven German researchers from the University of Münster who did gain access to the vast archives had already found material supporting critics of the pope’s wartime behavior. Documents indicated the pope had information early in the war about the murder of Jews. “But he kept this from the U.S. government after an aide argued that Jews and Ukrainians — his main sources — could not be trusted because they lied and exaggerated,” the researchers said. They also said the Vatican hid sensitive documents presumably to protect Pius’s image." The Vatican & the Holocaust: Pope Pius XII & the Holocaust by Mitchell Bard
WHO IN THE VATICAN, THAT IS THE QUESTION?
Why didn't Pope Pius XII speak up during WW II when he knew of the massacre of Jews by the Nazis?
But who within the Vatican might have been urging him to do so? Who might have been advising him caution?
THE GESTAPO & THE JESUITS, THE SOCIETY OF JESUS
Much of what is quoted is from "The SECRET HISTORY of the JESUITS" by Edmond Paris and "GENOCIDE IN SATELLITE CROATIA. 1941-1945"

GISC: Genocide in Satellite Croatia
Let us fast forward to the end of the war and what the Spanish Dictator, Franco's, press had to say, according to Reforme on the day of Hitler's death and published May 3, 1945:
"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.
"This funeral oration of the nazi chief, a challenge to the victorious allies, is voiced by the Holy See itself, under the cover of Franco's press. It is a communique of the Vatican given via Madrid. Of course, this missing hero well deserved the gratitude of the Roman Church and they do not attempt to conceal it. He served her faithfully: all those this Church pointed out to him as her adversaries felt the consequences. And this good 'son' wasn't slow in admitting what he owed to his Most Holy Mother, and especially to those who made themselves her soldiers in the world." The Secret History of the Jesuits p. 232
when he said:
"I learned much from the Order of the Jesuits", said Hitler... "Until now, there has never been anything more grandiose, on the earth, than the hierarchical organisation of the Catholic Church. I transferred much of this organisation into my own party... I am going to let you in on a secret... I am founding an Order... In my "Burgs" of the Order, we will raise up a youth which will make the world tremble... Hitler then stopped, saying that he couldn't say any more.." (ibid) Hermann Rauschning, former national-socialist chief of the government of Dantzig: "Hitler m'a dit", (Ed. Co-operation, Paris 1939, pp.266, 267, 273 ss
Walter Schellenberg, former chief of the German counter-espionage, after the war reinforced what Hitler said:
"The S.S. organisation had been constituted, by Himmler, according to the principles of the Jesuits' Order. Their regulations and the Spiritual Exercises prescribed by Ignatius of Loyola were the model Himmler tried to copy exactly... The "Reichsfuhrer SS"—Himmler's title as supreme chief of the SS—was to be the equivalent of the Jesuits' "General" and the whole structure of the direction was a close imitation of the Catholic Church's hierarchical order. A mediaeval castle, near Paderborn in Westphalia, and called "Webelsbourg", was restored; it became what could be called a SS monastery". Walter Schellenberg: "Le Chef du contre-espionnage nazi vous parle" (Julliard, Paris 1957, pp.23-24).

THE SIMILARITY BETWEEN NAZI AND CATHOLIC DOCTRINE - THE JESUIT MICHAELE SCHMAUS
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 re- awakened 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).
"Nothing is more contrary to Catholicism than democracy..."
THE POPE AND THE JESUIT - PIUS XII & SCHMAUS
"This aim was the "new middle-ages" Hitler promised Europe. The similarity is obvious between the passionate anti-liberalism of this Jesuit from Munich and the equal fanaticism expressed during the "act of consecration of the F.N.C. in the basilica of Montmartre". During the occupation, the R.P. Merklen wrote: "These days, liberty no longer seems to merit any esteem". (l 11) Quotations such as these could be multiplied by the thousand. Is not this hatred of liberty under all its forms the character itself of the Roman Master? It is easy also to understand how the Catholic "doctrine" and the nazi "doctrine" could harmonise so well. The one who ably demonstrated this accord, "The Jesuit Michaele Schmaus", was called by 'La Croix', ten years after the war, the "great theologian of Munich"( 112), and nobody will be surprised to learn that he was made a "Prince of the Church" by Pius XII."
