Nazi Germany has more ties to the Vatican Jesuit order then I’d personally like to consider. But the truth is, I’ve done much research these last couple of days and the evidence is too striking not to believe.
Upon my investigation not only did I discover Hitler’s role in Jesuit Catholicism, but also the Vatican’s tie to Nazism today. Nazi beliefs did not leave when Hitler left, nor did they arrive when Hitler arrived, nor are they out of the Vatican today. Anti-Semitism and the Hitler mindset reminds a good portion of the order today.
But let’s start from the beginning with Hitler’s parents.
Adolf’s father—Alois Hitler—was baptized a Roman Catholic and remained one his entire life. His received a Catholic burial and was buried on church property upon his death.
Adolf’s Mother—Klara Hitle—was a devote Roman Catholic and attended church regularly. She too received a Roman Catholic burial and was buried next to her husband on the church property, upon her death.
Here are images of the church they were buried at….
Mein Kampf Hitler’s famous book, was edited by a Jesuit Father, named Bernhard Staempfle . Many seem to ignore the fact that this is a direct endorsement, of the Jesuits, to Hitler’s book. (The Secret History of the Jesuits Page 138)
Furthermore, the Black Pope during the reign of Hitler was, Wlodimir (Vladimir) Ledochowski, who was the superior general of the Jesuit order. During his time a document was created by Pius XI denouncing anti-Semitism (Jewish hatred). Although Pius XI tried to pass this legislation, Ledochowski, suppressed the document and was a proud supporter of anti-Semitism.
Add to that the fact that Ludwig Kaas, a Roman Catholic priest and prominent German politician leading the Centre Party (a Catholic Political Party), aided Hitler in obtaining votes. Kaas gave a speech outside Reichstag voicing the Party’s support for the Enabling Act, an Act which gave Adolf Hitler the power to enact laws without the involvement of the Reichstag (a legislative body in German)… This Act is sickly similar to the Patriot Act enacted by Bush and was a major step in instituting the dictatorship of Hitler.
The main reason the Vatican was a key supporter of Hitler was so that he could sign a Concordat deal with them. Eugenio Pacelli or Pope Pius XII, who became Pope after Pius XI, was a supporter of the deal also.
According to Wikipedia:
“The Reichskonkordat (Reich Concordat) is a treaty between the Holy See and Germanynegotiated during its transition into Nazi Germany. It was signed on 20 July 1933 by Secretary of State Eugenio Pacelli (who later became Pope Pius XII) on behalf of Pope Pius XI and Vice Chancellor Franz von Papen [Chancellor to Hitler] and President Paul von Hindenburg on behalf of the German government respectively. The treaty guarantees the rights of the Roman Catholic Church in Germany, but Nazi breaches of the agreement began almost as soon as it had been signed, leading to protest from the Church, including in the 1937 Mit brennender Sorge encyclical of Pope Pius XI.
The Reichskonkordat is the most controversial of several concordats between Germany and other nations that the Vatican negotiated during the pontificate of Pius XI. It is frequently discussed in works that deal with the rise of Hitler in the early 1930s and the Holocaust. The concordat has been described by some as giving moral legitimacy to the Nazi regime soon after Hitler had acquired quasi-dictatorial powers through the Enabling Act of 1933, though Hitler himself is not a signatory to the treaty and the treaty does not make mention of Hitler, or the Nazi Party. The source document is addressed to President Paul von Hindenburg.
The treaty places constraints on the political activity of German clergy of the Catholic Church. This contributed to a decrease in the previously vocal criticism of Nazism by the hierarchy of the Catholic Church in Germany, after September of 1933 when the treaty was ratified. From a Roman Catholic church perspective it has been argued that the concordat prevented even greater evils being unleashed against the Church. Though some German bishops were unenthusiastic, and the Allies at the end of World War II felt it inappropriate, Pope Pius XII successfully argued to keep the concordat in force. It is still in force to this day.”
“At a time when the heads of the major nations in the world faced the new Germany with cool reserve and considerable suspicion, the Catholic Church, the greatest moral power on earth, through the Concordat expressed its confidence in the new German government.” Guenter Lewy, The Catholic Church and Nazi Germany
Pope Pius XII not only signed the Concordat but also aided the Nazi and played a central role in getting Hitler to power. Franz von Papen, Chancellor to Germany, was another Catholic nobleman and politician associated with Hitler.
“The picture shows the signing the Concordat by Cardinal Pacelli (later to become Pope Pius XII). Far Left is Prelate Ludwig Kaas. Seated second from his left is Franz von Papen (a German nobleman, Catholic politician, General Staff officer, and diplomat, who served as Chancellor of Germany (Reichskanzler) in 1932). Standing at the far right is Vatican prelate, Montini, later to become Pope Paul VI.”

Catholic Symbolism mixed in with Nazism
“Germany and the Holy Roman Empire” by Gerald Flurry
“The Vatican was so appreciative of being recognized as a full partner (with Hitler and the Reich) that it asked God to bless the Reich. On a more practical level, it ordered German bishops to swear allegiance to the National Socialist regime. The new oath concluded with these significant words: ‘In the performance of my spiritual office and in my solicitude for the welfare and the interest of the German Reich, I will endeavor to avoid all detrimental acts which might endanger it’” (op. cit., pp. 430-432.
