Satanism in the Vatican
Catholic Archbishop Emmanuel Milingo, is an exorcist and the author of the book, Face to Face With the Devil. Archbishop Milingo gave a speech entitled, "Satanists at work in the Vatican" at the Fatima 2000 International Congress on World Peace held in Rome 11/18/96-11/23/96. Mr. Milingo addressed an international audience of bishops, priests, nuns, and laity. Excerpts of the speech were reported in the Winter 1997 issue of The Fatima Crusader, a conservative pro-Marian Catholic newsletter that hosted the Fatima 2000 Congress and the 3/3/97 issue of The New American--
"The devil in the Catholic Church is so protected now that he is like an animal protected by the government; put on a game preserve that outlaws anyone, especially hunters, from trying to capture or kill it. The devil within the Church today is actually protected by certain Church authorities from the official devil-hunter in the Church -- the exorcist. ... To the question, 'Are there men of the curia who are followers of Satan?' Milingo responded, 'Certainly there are priests and bishops. I stop at this level of ecclesiastical hierarchy because I am an archbishop, higher than this I cannot go.' Milingo cited papal statements to back up his charges. 'Paul VI said that the smoke of Satan had entered into the Vatican.'"
-- Archbishop Milingo
In The Fatima Crusader article, Malachi Martin, a famous ex-Jesuit, Vatican insider, and best-selling author, is quoted,
"Archbishop Milingo is a good bishop and his contention that there are satanists in Rome is completely correct. Anybody who is acquainted with the state of affairs in the Vatican in the last 35 years is well aware that the prince of darkness has had and still has his surrogates in the court of St. Peter in Rome."
In 1990, Martin made reference to a Satanic rite held in Rome in his 1990 non-fiction best-seller about geopolitics and the Vatican, The Keys of This Blood:
Most frighteningly for [Pope] John Paul [II], he had come up against the irremovable presence of a malign strength in his own Vatican and in certain bishops' chanceries. It was what knowledgeable Churchmen called the 'superforce.' Rumors, always difficult to verify, tied its installation to the beginning of Pope Paul VI's reign in 1963. Indeed Paul had alluded somberly to 'the smoke of Satan which has entered the Sanctuary'. . . an oblique reference to an enthronement ceremony by Satanists in the Vatican. Besides, the incidence of Satanic pedophilia rites and practices was already documented among certain bishops and priests as widely dispersed as Turin, in Italy, and South Carolina, in the United States. The cultic acts of Satanic pedophilia are considered by professionals to be the culmination of the Fallen Archangel's rites. (p. 632)
Martin has revealed much more about this alleged ritual in his recent novel [circa 1996],Windswept House: A Vatican Novel. On page 492 of his book, Fr. Martin. In this story, he vividly describes a ceremony called "The Enthronement of the Fallen Archangel Lucifer" supposedly held in St. Paul's Chapel in the Vatican, but linked with concurrent satanic rites here in the US, on June 29, 1963, barely a week after the election of Paul VI. Just how bad did Martin judge things to be? Extremely so:
"Suddenly it became unarguable that now during this papacy, the Roman Catholic organization carried a permanent presence of clerics who worshipped Satan and liked it; of bishops and priests who sodomized boys and each other; of nuns who performed the "Black Rites" of Wicca, and who lived in lesbian relationships . . . every day, including Sundays and Holy Days, acts of heresy and blasphemy and outrage and indifference were committed and permitted at holy Altars by men who had been called to be priests. Sacrilegious actions and rites were not only performed on Christ's Altars, but had the connivance or at least the tacit permission of certain Cardinals, archbishops, and bishops. . . In total number they were a minorityanything from one to ten percent of Church personnel. But of that minority, many occupied astoundingly high positions or rank.... The facts that brought the Pope to a new level of suffering were mainly two: The systematic organizational linksthe network, in other words that had been established between certain clerical homosexual groups and Satanist covens. And the inordinate power and influence of that network." (Windswept, pp. 492-3)
According to The New American, Martin has confirmed that the ceremony did indeed occur as he described. "Oh yes, it is true; very much so," the magazine reported he said. "But the only way I could put that down into print is in novelistic form." He said more members of the clergy becoming aware of the situation, and that Archbishop Milingo was "merely like that actor in the movie Network, who got fed up and said, 'I'm not going to take it anymore.'"
Milingo's remarks have been strangely ignored by the American news media. The New American claimed that a Lexis/Nexis data search found not a single mention of his Fatima 2000 Congress statements, and were informed by an Associated Press researcher that Milingo was considered "a big old mouth" that was always spouting "a lot of insanity," because of his outspoken opinions about the existence of Satan and of miracles.
As for Malachi Martin's book, Windswept House, it has not gotten the critical acclaim or widespread publicity of his past efforts. It has been virtually ignored, even though it is published by Doubleday, a major mainstream house. Reviewers, he said, "are steering away from it. They don't know what to think about it; they don't know what to say."
Malachi Martin passed away in early August 1999. As far as is known, he never recanted on any of his claims that Windswept House was based on an actual satanic ritual in the Vatican in the first days of Pope Paul VI, nor that there is a general satanic conspiracy within the Roman Church.
