"... the unspeakable doctrine of Communism, as it is called, a doctrine
most opposed to the very natural law. For if this doctrine were accepted,
the complete destruction of everyone's laws, government, property, and
even of human society itself would follow."
-Pius IX, Encyclical "Qui Pluribus" (On Faith And Religion), Nov. 9, 1846. Full Text at: tinyurl.com/Qui-Pluribus

Secret societies, the scourge of the French people and the
sworn enemy of the Church of God, had long been plotting
their destructive machinations. The entire world has been

degrees had usurped the entire control of the press. They num-
bered among their party, illustrious writers, men distingushed
in the schools of philosophy, and among the literati of the day
not a few of whom had endeavored to put their dangerous
chimeras into execution. This sect, by its secret manoeuverings,
had rapidly increased. Silently and skillfully had they laid their
subterranean mines; the moment for explosion was near at hand,

conscious of the danger. France was asleep in the very mouth of
a volcano. But the watchful child of Carmel, with an attentive
eye to the wants of her country and the salvation of souls, raised

of averting the catastrophe. ...
