PAGE 14 THE GUARDIAN, NOVEMBER 14, 1969 A Living Rosary... And A Deadly Warning (What follows appeared recently in The Catholic Witness, official publication of the Diocese of Harrisburg, Pc., in connection with a tour of the Pennsylvania See by the Pilgrim Virgin of Fatima statue). By ROBERT J. McCURDY Columbia, Pc. -- America is in danger of "falling like ripe fruit" into the hands of communism be- cause the people don't seem to be heeding Mary's call for prayer and penance, a Dominican mission- cry warned here Sunday. The com- munist blueprint for worlddom- ination is working out exactly, as- serted the missionary, Father Thomas Nagle, now of Philadel- phia. He said dope addiction, peace demonstrations, avoidance of the draft, deceptive peace overtures and professors who preach revo- lution all are symptoms of the sickness which was predicted by the communists. ' ' Peace cannot come from man," he declared. "It can come only from God." He was addressing the kind of peaceful demonstrators who tend to take to their knees, not to the streets. About 400 in number, they were attending a "Rosary rally for peace" at Holy Trinity Church. Rather than calling for immediate withdrawal from Viet- nam, they drew out their beads and recited the five glorious mysteries. "The Second Vatican Council very clearly points out that the Blessed Mother is always to be held in the highest possible position," Father Nagle told them. He exhorted them to listen to Mary's requests as reported by the three children at Fatima in 1917. These were, he reminded, that men and women were to turn from sin, consecrate themselves to her, wear the scapular as an external sign of this conse- cration, say the Rosary, parti- cularly on Sundays, meditate on it and receive Holy Communion. "If so, Russia would be con- verted. But if not, then Russia would spread her errors all over the world, would provoke new wars, would persecute the Church. Many good people would suffer, the Holy Father would suf- fer much and many nations would be completely wiped out." This already has happened, Father Na- gle said, adding thatwhen the pro- phesy was made, Russia was a weak, demoralized nation, "de- rented in one of the bloodiest mil- itary disasters of all time." "Lenin and Trotsky had not yet set up their godless, atheistic revolution, but they revealed what they planned to do, (and you heard what Our Blessed Mother had planned to do if we did not listen to her)... " 'First of all,' they said 'we will take over all of Eastern Europe, and then after we have conquered them we will take over Step into the Old World at WINE LAND You have a cordial invitation to visit the Wiederkehr Wine Cellars, the oldest and largest winery in the Southwest.

We may not even have to attack it be- cause it will fall like an overripe fruit into our hands.' "Are these words true? Isn't our culture and our civilization rotting today from within? With our young absorbed completely in pleasure, with dope taking, nar- cotics, with defiance of students against all authority, with our youngsters in the armed forces giving up, going into foreign lands, draft dodgers?" On the other hand, Mary's peace prophesy can come true, but only if Catholics turn from sin, Father Nagle said. He then took another look at the communist predic- tions: "In the year of 1931 there was a professor in the Lenin school of Political Warfare in Moscow, and he uttered these words: " 'Our war with democracy is inevitable, but it will not come in our time. We need the element of surprise. "This is what we will do. We will launch peace movements all over the world, particularly in the democracies. We will make over- tures and concessions to put the capitalists to sleep and lull them into quietude. And they are so stu- pid and decadent that they will rejoice to cooperate in their own destruction. They will leap at the chance to be our friends, and when their guard is down we will smash them with our clenched fists.' " Father Nagle said "Red China, principally, has been the means of sending so much narcotics into our country to demoralize our young people," and "atheistic, ir- religious professors have gone to our colleges and universities to demoralize our students, to foment revolutions." He added, however, that there still is "one bright light, one shaft of hope." That, he asserted, is Mary's promise that she will triumph in the end, and that Russia will be converted.
