I was recently sent an article written in the National Catholic Register, May 28, 2017

80 Years of Mit Brenneder Sorge

I cannot find a link to the article on the net, but I will post a link to the encyclical if you wish to read it.

Before addressing this, I want to point out that the term "Nazi" is a slang term meant as an insult given the the NSDAP - the National Socialist German Workers Party.  The use of the word socialism in their name is not to be confused with the "Socialism" of Communism.  Hitler himself addressed this saying:
 
"A socialist is one who serves the common good without giving up his individuality or personality or the product of  personal efficiency.  Our adopted term "socialist" has nothing to do with Marxian Socialism.  Marxism is anti-property, true socialism is not.  Marxism places no value on the individual or individual effort or efficiency.  True socialism values the individual and encourages him in individual efficiency at the same time holding that his interests as an individual must be in consonance with those of the community.  All great inventions, discoveries, and achievements were first the product of an individual brain.  It is charged against me that that I am against property and that I am an atheist.  Both charges are false."  Adolf Hitler, December 28, 1938.

Now to address the article and Encyclical...

The National Catholic Register is a heretical Novus Ordo communist news service, in fact, Bishop Louis Vezelis had his priests read a letter from the pulpit saying no Catholic should even read this newspaper, let alone subscribe to it..  As such, like the rest of the communist world, it celebrates the defeat of National Socialist Germany by the Soviet Union and her allies.

There are many points of interest that need to be considered regarding this Encyclical.  The primary point that must be kept in mind is the saying: "actions speak louder than words", or as I would restate it, the actions of the Church should be used to interpret or understand the meaning of this Encyclical.

To begin, this Encyclical given May 14, 1937, never once named National Socialism or for that matter, Hitler, as to whom it addresses.  It must be remembered that at the time, Hitler was not in power for even 3 years.  (He became leader of Germany in August of 1934).

Hitler rose to power at a time when Communists were doing everything that they could to control Germany.  Pope Pius XI called the Communist takeovers and attempted takeovers of Russia, Spain, Mexico, AND GERMANY, a "conspiracy of silence" in his Encyclical Divini Redemptoris.  Divini Redemptoris, by the way, specifically and by name condemned Communism and went as far as to also call it by it's other name: Bolschevism, making it completely clear what he was condemning, unlike the encyclical Mit Brenneder Sorge which never names National Socialism as being condemned.  There will be more on Divini Redemptoris later.

We know now, looking back that the Communists had infiltrated the Church to the highest levels by the 1930's and were poised to completely overthrow the Church.  The Catholic Clergy in Germany was very much infiltrated by the Communists and even ran pro-communist newspapers and organizations, such as the various Catholic workers movements, which Hitler banned.

It is quite clear that in light of the wording of this Encyclical when compared with the wording of Divini Redemptoris, which was written at virtually the same time (Divini Redemptoris March 19, 1937 and Mit Brenneder Sorge March 10, 1937) that Pope Pius XI had reservations of what was being reported to him from Germany and hence did not name National Socialism or condemn it.

The Encyclical condemns racism and neo-paganism, of which, there is no doubt that there were members of the National Socialist Party who were attempting to promote, but they were stopped by Hitler.

To illustrate this fact, consider what Waffen SS Commander General Leon Degrelle, of whom Hitler said, "If I had a son, I would wish him to be just like you", had to say about German RACIALISM verses RACISM - there is a VAST difference:

" German racialism meant re-discovering the creative values of their own race, re-discovering their culture. It was a search for excellence, a noble ideal. National Socialist racialism was not against the other races, it was for its own race. It aimed at defending and improving its race, and wished that all other races did the same for themselves. That was demonstrated when the Waffen SS enlarged its ranks to include 60,000 Islamic SS. The Waffen SS respected their way of life, their customs, and their religious beliefs. Each Islamic SS battalion had an imam, each company had a mullah. It was our common wish that their qualities found their highest expression. This was our racialism. I was present when each of my Islamic comrades received a personal gift from Hitler during the new year. It was a pendant with a small Koran. Hitler was honoring them with this small symbolic gift. He was honoring them with what was the most important aspect of their lives and their history. National Socialist racialism was loyal to the German race and totally respected all other races." Leon Degrelle - Epic: The Story of the Waffen SS 

By all accounts, General Leon Degrelle was a devout Roman Catholic and fought the communist takeover of Belgium before WWII.

Hitler was not a racist and kept the racist infiltrators at bay within the National Socialist movement.  But, at the time of the Encyclical in 1937, it was unclear whether or  not Hitler could keep the racist and pagan elements in Germany from taking over, as time would tell, he in fact did.

General Francisco Franco of Spain, who fought and expelled the communists from his nation, who attended Mass daily, and has been called by many, including Bishop Louis Vezelis, one of the greatest Catholic leaders in the history of the world, had this to say upon hearing of the death of Adolf Hitler:

"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 figure. with the palm of the martyr, God gives Hitler the laurels of Victory."

I could write thousands of words, explaining and giving evidence that Hitler and National Socialism were not racist or pagan, but I think the above should suffice.

I would like to now move on to the point of "actions speaking louder than words" or rather understanding this Encyclical in light of the actions of the Church.


Pope Pius XII lived until 1958 - over a decade after WWII ended and National Socialism defeated.  Many novus ordo communists will use smoke and mirrors and claim that the reason that Pope Pius XI never named National Socialism in Mit Brennender Sorge and why neither Pope ever condemned National Socialism is because they feared that the "Nazis" would persecute the Catholics in Germany.  Think about this claim.  If this is true, why did neither Pope not care about naming Communism and condemning Communism to the point of ipso facto excommunication for Communists, after all, they KNEW that this would result in even greater persecution of the Catholic clergy and laity by the Communists, yet they still named and condemned it!


Pope Pius XII, as previously stated, lived until 1958 and had over a decade to condemn National Socialism (Nazism) and to excommunicate members of National Socialism, but never once did.  In fact, all of the Catholic "nazis" were allowed Catholic funerals, even the leadership.  Cardinal Adolf Bertram even ordered Requiem Masses be offered for Hitler upon hearing of his death, something which certainly could not have escaped the attention of the Vatican at the time.  St. Martin Catholic Church in Old Madrid Spain every year for 23 years (ending in 1968) offered a Requiem Mass for Adolf Hitler and this was widely reported at the time and prayer cards for Hitler were even distributed.  The last Mass for Hitler in 1968 was attended by over "300 Nazi sympathizers including Spanish volunteers and Falangists".  Since this was reported worldwide, it is impossible to believe that Pope Pius XII before his death was not aware that these Masses were being offered.  It is interesting to note that they ended after the conclusion of Vatican II.


The so-called ratlines, which helped National Socialist leaders out of Europe after the war were all based out of Rome and were all led by Catholic Clergy, including Franciscans.  It is impossible to believe that Pope Pius XII was not aware of these activities which involved international cooperation among Catholic Clergy from Argentina, Rome, Germany, France, etc.  A strange thing for a Pope who supposedly condemned National Socialism to do and.or allow.

As a side note, I would also like to point out that Pope Pius XII never once even mentioned the "holocaust", let alone condemned it.  Anyone who does even a small amount of research into the Nuremberg Trials and the Holocaust story will quickly discover that it never happened.  What is odd, is that many who deny the Holocaust, still believe all the other lies about Hitler.  I would like to ask such people the following question:  If all the other claims about Hitler persecuting Christians, killing the handicapped, being an insane murderous war monger, etc. are true - why would anyone make up such a ridiculous story as the Holocaust?  If all the other nonsense were true, there was no reason to make up such a stupid story as the holocaust.

Satan is the prince of this world and the father of lies.  This world hates the truth because it is headed by the father of lies.  I think any  honest review of history, will show, that after our dear Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, no other person in all of human history has been as lied about and hated by the world as Adolf Hitler..

It has been said that if you fight the greatest liars in the world and lose, you will be the most lied about man in history.  This is certainly true of Adolf Hitler.
