The Catholic Southern Front

Chapter 9/41 – The Militia Immaculata, Secret Fraternal Societies and Hiroshima






Saint Maximillian Kolbe was born to an impoverished Kolbe Family in Poland. His name was Raymond and young Raymond was sent to a Franciscan school where the tutors and priests soon discovered his genius of insight and vision. Incredibly enough, Raymond was a keen student in the study of the sciences and predicted that in his own lifetime, man would travel to the moon. At a young age, Raymond experienced the apparition of the Blessed Virgin, who presented him with two crowns and inquired which crown he desired to win as his own. The choice was between a red crown, which symbolized martyrdom and a white crown symbolizing celibacy. In his enthusiasm young Raymond chose both. He later became a religious, adopting the name of Maximillian, he joined the Conventual Franciscans. During his years of study in a Roman Seminary, Maximillian experienced in full the revolutionary spirits of the epoch, constantly beating their drum against the Roman Catholic Faith.

By means of publications, certain scholars elucidate on the influence secret fraternal societies had on the French Revolution, the Italian Risorgimento, the Russian Revolution and many other political events. The possibility exists that bolshevism was financed by secret fraternal societies and amongst the most senior Bolsheviks a few were members of such. During the nineteenth century, secret fraternal societies fomented the unification of Italy, under Garibaldi and Mazzini, resulting in the annexation of the Papal States and in 1870, the restriction of the Holy See to Rome. In the early twentieth century the Holy See was, by the influence of the Italian Masonic Propaganda 2 or P-2 in short, and the later Fascist politics, further restricted to Vatican City. Hatred towards the Roman Catholic Faith was intense, following the Italian Risorgimento, at the Monastery of San Callisto in Italy, the bodies of almost 100 tortured and mangled priests were discovered. To Mazzini is also attributed the founding of the Italian murdering squads and organized crime, referred to as MAFIA or ‘Mazzini, Autorizza, Furti, Incendii e Avvelenamenti’ or ‘Mazzini authorizes thefts, arson and poisonings’(1) In 1931, during Manuel Azana’s Spain the Communist and Masonic Republic murdered 6,549 priests and 283 nuns and destroyed hundreds of churches and sacred religious objects.

Unraveling the history of secret fraternal societies reveals that in 1713, the Freethinkers sect began functioning in a propagandistic manner. The Freethinkers held such principles, which could only be proven by science. To prove true the precepts of Holy Religion was an impossible issue, and not highly regarded by the secret sect, therefore, philosophy and faith were separated from the new ‘god of reason,’ which became the god of the enlightenment. At this time, Freemasonry was the most dangerous secret fraternal society (sfs), today the vast array of such societies might challenge Freemasonry’s position on the sfs’ chart, as number one secret sect, however its black hand still lurks. But during the same year of 1713, Saint Louis Marie Grignon De Montfort, founded the Company of Mary. Interestingly, or maybe coincidentally, the apparition of Our Lady at Fatima in 1917, occurred two hundred years following the establishment in 1717, of the Masonic Grand Lodge in London. Did Our Lady’s apparition in Fatima occur to counteract the work of the ‘Craft’?

Previously, and during the First World War, celebrations were organized to commemorate the second centenary of Freemasonry. Maximillian experienced in full these celebrations. In Rome, Saint Maximillian Kolbe, witnessed the Masonic militant thugs marching waving their banners and standards with the words: “Satan must reign in the Vatican, The Pope will be his slave.”(2) Their banners also depicted Lucifer trampling underfoot Saint Michael. Saint Maximillian witnessed these marches and was deeply troubled; true Catholics would definitely be troubled!

During those years, certain conspirators financed the Bolshevik Revolution in Russia. As quoted by Gary Allen in ‘None Dare Call It Conspiracy,’ the New York Journal-American of February 3, 1949, mentions by name the powerful international financiers who supplied twenty million dollars to Mr Lenin and Mr Leon Trotsky or Leib Davidovich Bronstein. The Bolshevik Revolution, occurring primarily in Saint Petersburg, overthrew the Russian government, assisted in the murder of the Russian Royal Family and initiated the dark Communist era in the entire Eastern hemisphere of the world. Before the Russian Revolution, Leon Trotsky, wrote in his diary regarding his fascination with Masonic symbolism, choosing the Masonic Five-Pointed Star as the symbol of the future revolutionary state. Therefore, the Soviet Communist Red Star was in fact a Masonic symbol. Notwithstanding this, during his youth, Kolbe predicted that one future day the statue of Mary Immaculate would be seen in the center of Moscow, above the Kremlin.

In ‘Divine Redemptoris,’ the Encyclical Letter of His Holiness Pope Pius XI, on Atheistic communism in 1937, was addressed to the “Patriarchs, Primates, Archbishops, Bishops and other Ordinaries in Peace and Communion with the Apostolic See.” Pope Pius XI says: “17. There is another explanation for the rapid diffusion of the Communistic ideas now seeping into every nation, great and small, advanced and backward, so that no corner of the earth is free from them. This explanation is to be found in a propaganda so truly diabolical that the world has perhaps never witnessed its like before. It is directed from one common center. It is shrewdly adapted to the varying conditions of diverse peoples. It has at its disposal great financial resources, gigantic organizations, international congresses, and countless trained workers. It makes use of pamphlets and reviews, of cinema, theater and radio, of schools and even universities. Little by little it penetrates into all classes of the people and even reaches the better-minded groups of the community, with the result that few are aware of the poison which increasingly pervades their minds and hearts. 18. A third powerful factor in the diffusion of communism is the conspiracy of silence on the part of a large section of the non-Catholic press of the world. We say conspiracy, because it is impossible otherwise to explain how a press usually so eager to exploit even the little daily incidents of life has been able to remain silent for so long about the horrors perpetrated in Russia, in Mexico and even in a great part of Spain; and that it should have relatively so little to say concerning a world organization as vast as Russian Communism. This silence is due in part to shortsighted political policy, and is favored by various occult forces, which for a long time have been working for the overthrow of the Christian Social Order. 19. Meanwhile the sorry effects of this propaganda are before our eyes. Where communism has been able to assert its power – and here We are thinking with special affection of the people of Russia and Mexico – it has striven by every possible means, as its champions openly boast, to destroy Christian civilization and the Christian religion by banishing every remembrance of them from the hearts of men, especially of the young. Bishops and priests were exiled, condemned to forced labor, shot and done to death in inhuman fashion; laymen suspected of defending their religion were vexed, persecuted, dragged off to trial and thrown into prison.”(3)

In 1965, Father Pedro Arrupe, the head of the Jesuit Order said: “This…. Godless society operates in an extremely efficient manner at least in its higher levels of leadership. It makes use of every possible means at its disposal, be they scientific, technical, social, or economic. It follows a perfectly mapped out strategy. It holds almost complete sway in international organizations, in financial circles, in the field of mass communications; press, cinema, radio and television.”(4) In the nineteenth century Saints Gaspar del Bufalo and Saint Vincent Palotti, worked assiduously to battle the Italian Masonic forces. Similarly, Saint Maximillian Kolbe, conceived the idea to establish a society which would counterattack the rising ideological tides, directed against the Holy See and the Lord’s Religion. He established the ‘Company of the Militia of the Immaculata’ with the incredible primary mission: “To convert sinners, heretics, and especially Masons, and to sanctify all under the patronage and through the intercession of the Immaculate Virgin Mary.”(5) Saint Maximillian Kolbe later replaced the word ‘masons’ with ‘enemies of the Church,’ so as to include communism, all other secret fraternal societies, satanic groups, sects and the lot.

The Militia urges the member to consecrate oneself daily to the Immaculate Heart of the Blessed Virgin and to wear the Miraculous Medal. Saint Maximillian carried the medals and referred to these as ‘bullets,’ which he gave out accordingly. Many conversions occurred thanks to these bullets. Saint Maximillian established a monastery and printing premises in Grodno, Poland. On November 21, 1927, on the Feast Day of Our Lady’s Presentation, the printing plant was moved from Grodno to Warsaw. On the solemnity of the Feast Day of the Immaculate Conception, on December 8, 1927, the complex in Warsaw was named ‘Niepokalanow’ or ‘Marytown.’

In 1931, Saint Maximillian left for Japan and in the City of Nagasaki, inaugurated a complex naming it ‘Mugenzai no Sono’ or ‘Garden of the Immaculata.’ The magazine ‘Knights of the Immaculate,’ published by the Saint’s printing press, was very popular both in Poland and in Japan. In 1936, after establishing a similar premises in India, Maximillian returned to Niepokalanow in Poland, where he recovered from Tuberculosis. He remained in Niepokalanow during the Second World War. On September 19, 1939, eighteen days following the start of the German Nazi aggression in Poland, the German Nazis arrested Kolbe. He was freed from the prison camp on December 8, 1939, on the Feast of the Immaculate Conception, the intercession of Our Lady is evident. From 1940-1941, during the Second World War one hundred and twenty thousand copies of his magazine ‘Rycerz Niepokalanej’ (Knight of the Immaculata) were printed and distributed. In 1941, Father Kolbe was arrested once again and sent to the extermination camp of Auschwitz in Poland. In the Nazi extermination camp he encouraged the Faithful and administered the Sacraments as best he could. He was often severely beaten by the SS-Nazi guards. Fr. Maximillian voluntarily took the place of a man who was destined for the starvation bunkers. In a heroic act of courage, he instructed the fellow prisoners to recite the Holy Rosary. Witnesses recount the manner how, rather than blasphemies and the shouts and groaning of the starving, from Maximillian’s bunker one heard the singing of hymns and the recitation of the Holy Rosary. During the starvation period, Saint Maximillian and a few others were miraculously kept alive. In the end, Maximillian courageously held out his arm and was administered the lethal dose of carbolic acid, by the Nazi guards. The modern martyr and saint died on the Eve of the Feast of the Assumption, on August 14, 1941. Indeed, he had won both crowns. This saint was audacious enough to lead a group of Auschwitz prisoners, who were probably not even Christian, at reciting the Holy Rosary during their ordeal at the hands of the Odin and Wotan worshipping SS-regime. Our Lady (the New Ark of the New Covenant and the True Temple of Solomon) assisted these men during those horrific moments.

On August 9, 1945, a plutonium bomb nicknamed ‘Fat Man’ was dropped from a B-29 bomber. The A-bomb plunged downwards and detonated approximately one kilometer above the City of Nagasaki in Japan at precisely 11:02 A.M. The Urukami Cathedral with its two priests who were hearing confessions and thirty of the Faithful, were cooked to a cinder. Saint Maximillian Kolbe built the Franciscan Friary of Mugenzai No Sono, upon a spot, which was Divinely indicated and located behind the crest of a hill. During the blast of ‘Fat Man’ the Friary was miraculously spared from the atomic destruction. The Franciscans who survived, attributed this miraculous protection to the daily recitation of the Holy Rosary and their devotion to ‘Our Lady of Fatima.’ The Franciscans were soon called the ‘Immaculate Conception Fathers,’ named in such a manner after the Immaculate Conception of Our Lady, who delivered them from the most destructive weapon known to mankind.

It could be argued that the spot, upon which the Franciscan Friary was built, behind the crest of a hill, was the saving factor. Three days earlier to ‘Fat Man,’ another, although less powerful, A-bomb was dropped by the USA on the City of Hiroshima in Japan. It detonated, approximately, one thousand meters above the city on August 6, 1945 at 8:15 A.M. The force of such a bomb would liquidate anything in the radius of one kilometer and kill everything in a radius of ten to fifteen kilometers. For a radius of ten kilometers, buildings were entirely leveled. The only surviving structure was a Jesuit church and its monastery, dedicated to ‘Our Lady of the Assumption.’ Eight Jesuits sent to Hiroshima in the 1920s, resided in the monastery and mysteriously survived a detonation the equivalent of 20,000 tonnes of TNT. Their monastery was located just eight blocks away from the center of the devastation, (not ground zero for the A-bomb detonated in the air). The German Father Schiffer and the Spanish Father Arrupe, who were amongst the surviving Jesuits, could not understand how if not through the intercession of Our Lady of Fatima, and thanks to their recitation of the Holy Rosary, they could have survived the extreme temperatures and pressure surges produced by the A-bomb, let alone the radiation. The facts are evident, the building was the only surviving for kilometers around, the eight Jesuits survived unscathed and lived for the rest of their lives without suffering from any sort of exposure to radiation. The rest of the City of Hiroshima was obliterated and 500,000 people were destroyed in the fires. From a pool of survivors of a fifteen-kilometer radius, the Jesuits were the only people who, after fifteen years, were still alive. All the rest had died due to radiation exposure. At the time of the detonation and radiation fall-out, the Jesuits converted their monastery into a makeshift hospital and managed to care for two hundred severely burnt and scarred people. Father Arrupe later became the Jesuit Order’s twenty-eight Superior General (1965-1981). The eight Jesuits were examined hundreds of times, by scientists who could not fathom their miraculous escape. The Jesuits repeated the affirmation that they recited the Holy Rosary daily, to live up to the Fatima message.
