In the first decades of the 20th Century Communists centered around US University Campuses that were influenced by European Academics sent infiltrators to join the Catholic Church, in a similar rouse to that we see Common Purpose using today in Churches in Northern Ireland.
The aim was to infiltrate and subvert the Catholic Church, along with other Christian Churches and also to redirect funds into Communist community organisation. Bella Dodd, a very talented Italian Academic who rose to prominence in the Commie scene in New York defected after becoming aware of the harmful effects of the Marxist Agenda.
“Bella Dodd was born Maria Asunta Isabella Visono in Italy about 1904. A brilliant and dedicated woman, she graduated from Hunter College and NYU Law School. She became head of the New York State Teachers Union and was a member of the Communist Party’s (CPUSA’s) National Council until 1949.
“School of Darkness” is her autobiography, detailing her life’s work with the Communist Party, her disillusionment, her testimony before the Tydings Committee, and her return to the Catholic faith with the assistance of Monsignor Fulton J. Sheen.
Warning – this book will be difficult to put down. Have a “Look Inside”. This is a “must read”.
