In general terms, Our Lady charged the little shepherds to tell the world that she was deeply upset by the wickedness and corruption of men. She warned that if men did not amend, a terrible chastisement would come that would annihilate many nations. Russia would spread its errors throughout the world. The Holy Father would have much to suffer.
Were any of the Free World's great powers in the 20th century able to stem the advance of Communism - the direct foe of God in all history? But where man has failed, history records that the Rosary alone as succeeded. Austria, Brazil, Chile, and Portugal all saved themselves form the peril of Communism by the recitation of the Rosary...For all the vast paraphernalia of power politics are but a shadow compared with the infinite power of the Rosary before God, provided it is fervently used and propagated.
Biggest threat to world peace? 27% named President Trump, 22% said Kim Jong-Un, and 15% tapped Vladimir Putin
Is even communism making a comeback?
Somewhere, Bernie Sanders is smiling.
A new survey released by the Washington, D.C., nonprofit Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation reflects that, if the younger generation gets out and votes in 2020, those running for office on the far left have reason to be hopeful.
‘The historical amnesia about the dangers of communism and socialism is on full display in this year’s report.’
- Marion Smith, executive director of the Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation
According to YouGov, which conducted the poll, capitalism, amid a widening divide between the haves and have-nots, has plunged in popularity from a year ago, with one out of every two millennials — ages 23 to 38 — supporting it.
Meanwhile, 36% of millennials polled say that they approve of communism, which is up significantly from 28% in 2018.
Socialism, a dirty word to the president and many of his supporters, has shown a decrease in favorability in all age groups except the Silent Generation (age 74+) and millennials, of which 70% say they’d be likely to vote for a socialist candidate.
Marion Smith, executive director of the Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation, says he’s troubled by the findings of the poll.
“The historical amnesia about the dangers of communism and socialism is on full display in this year’s report,” Smith said in a statement on Monday. “When we don’t educate our youngest generations about the historical truth of 100 million victims murdered at the hands of communist regimes over the past century, we shouldn’t be surprised at their willingness to embrace Marxist ideas.”
Other nuggets from the report include that 22% of millennials believe “society would be better if all private property was abolished,” and that 45% of Generation Z members and millennials believe that “all higher education should be free.”
As for the biggest threat to world peace, 27% across every generation pointed a finger at President Trump, while 22% named North Korea’s Kim Jong-Un and 15% picked Russia’s Vladimir Putin.

"Charity which is the bond of perfection, must be dictated and regulated by the truth and it is in this spirit of charity which we must act." - Cardinal Pie
Now, once again Paul VI gives pre-eminence to human means. Let us go back, therefore, to his incredible address of October 4, 1965 at the United Nations. Was it not, perhaps, a recital of his “Creed” in the “Religion of Man?” Let us read again those “passages” that aroused not a little amazement:
«Our message - said he - is meant to be, first of all, a moral and solemn ratification of this lofty Institution… We bring to this organization the suffrage of our recent Predecessors, that of the entire Catholic Episcopate, and our own, convinced as we are, that this organization represents the obligatory path of modern civilization and of world peace… The peoples of the earth turn to the United Nations as the last hope of concord and peace. We presume to present here, together with our own, their tribute to honor and of hope».
Every person that had retained a minimal Christian sense, must have protested and criticized that profession of faith in an Atheistic and Masonic Organization, which Paul VI went as far as define an “obligatory path” and “last hope of peace”… And that, he repeated in his other message addressed to U’Thant, then Secretary General of the UN, on the occasion of the 25th anniversary of that organization:
Once again, on this day, we wish to repeatwhat we had the honor to proclaim on October 4, 1965, to the audience of your Assembly: This organization represents the obligatory path of modern civilization and of world peace… If the breeding grounds of violence are always on the rise… The consciousness of humanity affirms itself, with like occurrence, increasingly stronger on this privileged forum where… Men recover their inalienable common trait: the human in man… Thus, we renew our confidence that your organization would be able to respond to the immense hope of a brotherly global community, where anyone might experience a truly human life».
I repeat: it is a new profession of faith in the UN (666?) and in man, whereas the Scriptures tell us: “Blessed is that man that maketh the LORD his trust, and respecteth not the proud….
