Many Jews converted because of Pope Pius XII

Shallow erudition diminishes the "other" Francis — St. Francis Xavier (co-patron saint of evangelization). However, this true Catholic had a zeal for souls like no other in encountering obstacles — opposition by those who should have helped most in his voyages to the Far East, dangerous high seas considering the ships of the 1500s; extreme pagan lands where the gospel was never preached.

Matthew 7 is often misinterpreted (read Verse 15). One can arrange for his own sainthood, but Christ will not be fooled by poor fruit in one's tenure. The vine (Christ) and branches must match.

Forty years after St. Francis Xavier's death, persecution broke out in Japan. In Nagasaki, converts of Xavier stood firm in going to their deaths on the crosses of the hills of Nagasaki.

What is the best sign of a good pope? John 10 speaks about the good shepherd, but 15:18-20 is the determiner. He will not be liked, but hated by the world.

Since Vatican II, St. Francis of Assisi was treated as milquetoast in false ecumenism. It is shameful that a pope of the true Mystical Body of Christ should allow his presence at Assisi, Italy, to support a conglomeration of every sect from snake worshippers to pantheism. At Fatima, Catholic groups allowed the sacrilege of Buddha's statue being placed on top of the sacred tabernacle.

The last pope before Vatican II (Pius XII) was criticized by a so-called Church of God representative on radio. Many Jews, especially Golda Meir, were thankful in World War II of Pius' underground support.

Israel Zolli, chief rabbi of Rome, converted to Catholicism because of Pius' friendship. Father Arthur Klyber founded "Remnant of Israel." More Jews became Catholic because of Pius XII than any other. This true shepherd relayed the Catholic faith through my beloved parents.

The foot soldier will never be replaced by the cheap slogans of "new" evangelization that attempt to merely "renew" the very poor Catechesis done by the "renewers" in the first place. Focus toward "all three" — altar, tabernacle, crucifix.
