As Latin Mass Network devoted several articles covering the Legion of Christ deception, it seemed only fair to cover some of the con artists operating in traditionalist circles. As we know, Holy Mother Church is under attack from all sides and it's good to keep a watchful eye on all those who come bearing gifts.
The biggest trad deception is, of course, the sedevacantist schism which purports that the Chair of Peter is either empty or somehow not functioning at full authority. The definitions of the First Vatican Council are sufficient to end this heresy. On a smaller scale, though, are those who talk a good trad line to sell us books and movies, such as Malachi Martin and Mel Gibson. But there is more to Fr. Martin than his off-color and conspiratorial intrigue books. Martin was a Judiazer who worked to undermine Church doctrine at Vatican II.
"Malachi Martin's Double Agent Status Documented" is a
1997 2007* article by John Grasmeier, founder of Angelqueen.org, a Catholic discussion site. Based on my years of observation, Mr. Grasmeier is an honest Catholic who takes the Commandments seriously, especially in this matter, the 8th. In Martin's case, he did his homework well and further confirmed for me the distrust I always had for the man.
Below are some excerpts from the article; please visit Angelqueen.org for the full story.
Angelqueen.org has obtained numerous incriminating documents proving not only that Malachi Martin was indeed the infamous Vatican II "double agent," but also that his duplicitous activities during the Council ran far deeper than had been previously thought.
During the Second Vatican Council, Martin acted as an assistant and translator to Cardinal Augustin Bea, head of the Secretariat for the Promotion of Christian Unity (SPCU). At the time, a major focus of the SPCU was the Jewish declaration portion of Nostra Aetate, the Vatican II document that addressed the Church's relations with other religions. Cardinal Bea would later be referred to by Archbishop Lefebvre as an "instrument of betrayal."
In January of 1966, Look Magazine ran an article entitled "How the Jews Changed Catholic Thinking," a lengthy, in-depth look at the influence various Jewish lobbying groups had over the final draft of Nostra Aetate. In the article, Senior Editor Joseph Roddy tells of an unnamed Jesuit priest who held a key position in Rome during the time the Second Vatican Council was in session. The priest, described as a double agent who "could never turn down work" and a "savior in the diaspora," would use his position to gather and disseminate inside information to the secular press and the Jewish lobbying groups, who would in turn use that information in their efforts to influence the Council fathers, particularly the progressive American bishops. Although the priest's actual name is withheld, several pseudonyms he used for his various activities are revealed.
...There is no doubt whatsoever that the double agent described in the Look article by Joseph Roddy was in fact Malachi Martin. The document at exhibit G undeniably ties Michael Serafian - who is undeniably Malachi Martin - to the F.E Cartus pseudonym.
