Fr. Edward Leen against the Marxists…
A Brief Catholic Critique of Communism
Early protagonists of Communism: Vladimir Lenin, Friedrich Engels, Karl Marx
In 1939, the magnificent Irish Catholic writer Fr. Edward Leen (1885-1944) published a book entitled The Church before Pilate. Released at a critical moment in history, it addresses the relations between the Catholic Church and the secular authority. At only 78 pages, it is a short read and highly recommended.
In Chapter 2 of The Church before Pilate, the author devotes a subsection to the topic of Communism.

Marx meets Marx: “Archbishop” of Munich poses with Statue of Founder of Communism
The German city of Trier recently put up a statue of Karl Marx (1818-1883), the founder of Communism.
Trier is the birthplace of this notorious revolutionary, whose erroneous philosophy and dangerous, anti-Catholic ideology is historically responsible for the deaths of roughly 100 million people in the world. (To get any idea of how many dead bodies that is, look at the one million dots on this page and mentally multiply it by 100 — if you can.) Alexander Solzhenitsyn’s The Gulag Archipelago tells the horrific inside story of Soviet Communism, which would have been impossible without Karl Marx first delivering the ideological blueprint.… READ MORE
