Defense of Pius XII

Pope Pius XII and the Church saved as many lives as possible ... to defend life at all costs, sometimes in silence and sometimes in public defiance of Hitler.

The Church under the communist regime

This video is just an example about one of the most terrible tragedies in the past century: the communism. This totalitarian system tried to depersonalize and to cancell the human being in an ideology full of lias and false expectations, for this reason it could not accept any other faith. Million Christians killed or deported in lagers, in jails etc. We have to do our best to not repeat it anymore even if still today there is who hopes in its return...
