Communist Techniques Used In Poland


We continue with a selection from “Vatican II Exposed as Counterfeit Catholicism,” by Frs. Francisco and Dominic Radecki, CMRI In the mid-1940’s, Communist leaders in Poland told priests to break the confessional seal and report those who opposed them. In Yugoslavia, Tito used laymen disguised as priests to do the job. Polish Secret Police Sluzba Bzpieczenstwa (SB) archives record:

The regime was kept extremely well informed. At any given time, there were well over 1,000 priests who worked as spies and informants for the Polish Communist government. In a shocking betrayal of trust, the confidentiality of the confessional was regularly breached.

In 1949, Polish Communists used pax (peace) priests, who took an oath of loyalty to them, to spread Marxism and Modernism. All who refused to join were imprisoned, exiled or executed. Of the 3,647 priests and 1,117 nuns Communists imprisoned in Poland, 1996 priests and 238 Sisters died there. Cardinal Wyszynski (Warsaw) gained some freedoms for the Church by working with Communist leaders but sacrificed much in return.

It is easy to control a nation where people live in fear. Few have the courage to rebel after leaders are removed and executed. In 1954, a
Communist mob beat Auxiliary Bishop Franc (Split, Yugoslavia) for suspending priests who formed the schismatic, pro-Communist SS.
Cyril and Methodius Association. At Vatican II, he heroically defended Catholic belief. Those who collaborated with Communists
enjoyed special privileges. Fr. Wojtyla, the future John Paul II, quickly advanced from priest to “pope,” and taught, traveled, camped, skied, canoed and pursued hobbies, while faithful Polish clergy and laity were arrested and executed.

In Hungry, a number of priests joined the ‘Priests of the Peace’ movement, showing allegiance to the Kremlin, not Rome. In the 1960’s, Communists forced every Catholic priest in Bulgaria to become a member of the Communist Partisans for Peace movement, which according to journalist, Asian Humbaraci, was a, “…great political and military enterprise of Moscow.” Chinese Communists formed a schismatic church with “patriot priests” and bishops loyal to them. Czechoslovakian Communists imprisoned bishops or placed them under house arrest, disbanded Religious Orders and sent 487 Jesuits to concentration camps. Communists seized all Catholic schools and Communist propaganda was taught in seminaries. Author Corrado Pallenberg said, “Very many priests have been enrolled in the Communist Party.”

In 1953, Bella Dodd told the U.S. House Committee on Un-American Activities:

In the late 1920’s and 1930’s directives were sent from Moscow to all Communist Party organizations. In order to destroy the Catholic
Church from within, party members were to be planted in seminaries and within organizations…I myself put some 1,200 men in Catholic seminaries. She stated that ‘right now they are in the highest places in the Church’ where they were working to weaken the Church’s effectiveness again Communism. These changes, she declared, would be so drastic that ‘you will not recognize the Catholic Church.
