From our conversation throughout this afternoon, I must conclude that you don’t believe that the accelerating loss of the sense of the supernatural is an accident of history.No I do not. There have been two books published in Italy in recent years that confirm what my husband had been suspecting for some time; namely, there has been a systematic infiltration of the Church by diabolical enemies for much of this [20th] century. My husband was a very sanguine man and optimistic by nature. During the last ten years of his life, however, I witnessed him many times in moments of great sorrow, and frequently repeating, "They have desecrated the Holy Bride of Christ." He was referring to the "abomination of desolation" of which the prophet Daniel speaks.
This is a critical admission, Dr. von Hildebrand. Your husband has been called a twentieth-century Doctor of the Church by Pope Pius XII. If he felt so strongly, didn’t he have access to the Vatican to tell pope Paul VI of his fears?But he did! I shall never forget the private audience we had with Paul VI just before the end of the Council. It was on June 21, 1965. As soon as my husband started pleading with him to condemn the heresies that were rampant, the Pope interrupted him with the words, "Lo scriva, lo scriva." ("Write it down.") A few moments later, for the second time, my husband drew the gravity of the situation to the Pope’s attention. Same answer. His Holiness received us standing. It was clear that the Pope was feeling very uncomfortable. The audience lasted only a few minutes. Paul VI immediately gave a sign to his secretary, Fr. Capovilla, to bring us rosaries and medals.
We then went back to Florence where my husband wrote a long document (unpublished today) that was delivered to Paul VI just the day before the last session of the Council. It was September 1965. After reading my husband’s document, he said to my husband’s nephew, Dieter Sattler, who had become the German ambassador to the Holy See, that he had read the document carefully, but that "it was a bit harsh." The reason was obvious: my husband had humbly requested a clear condemnation of heretical statements.
You realize, of course, Doctor, that as soon as you mention this idea of infiltration, there will be those who roll their eyes in exasperation and remark, "Not another conspiracy theory!"I can only tell you what I know. It is a matter of public record, for instance, that Bella Dodd, the ex-Communist who reconverted to the Church, openly spoke of the Communist Party’s deliberate infiltration of agents into the seminaries. She told my husband and me that when she was an active party member, she had dealt with no fewer than four cardinals within the Vatican "who were working for us."
Fortsetzung und ganzes Interview hier
Dr. von Hildebrand gibt in obigem Interview an, dass Bella Dodd ihr und Dietrich von Hildebrand erzählt hat, dass die Kommunisten Agenten in die Priesterseminare eingeschleust hatten, an anderer Stelle habe ich gelesen, dass es 1100 seit den 30er Jahren gewesen sein sollen. Dr. Hildebrand sagt, dass Bella Dodd nach ihren eigenen Aussagen als aktives Parteimitglied selbst mit nicht weniger als vier Kardinälen im Vatikan zu tun hatte, die für die Kommunisten gearbeitet haben.
Bella Dodd, katholisch getauft und als Erwachsene einst führendes Mitglied der kommunistischen Partei Amerikas, wurde übrigens von Bischof Fulton Sheen, dessen Seligsprechungsprozess 2003 eingeleitet wurde, wieder zurück in die katholische Kirche aufgenommen.
