Pope Pius XII (Eugenio Pacelli) and the Jews

By George Jacobsen

“No Pope in history has been thanked more heartily by Jews.” – Pinchas Lapide, Jewish theologian and Israeli historian

“No Pope of the 20th century, with the exemption of John Paul II and maybe Pius XI, so openly showed his love for the Jewish people as Pius XII.” Michael Hesemann, German historian, Vatican journalist and author

The Pacelli Vatican bankers

“Pope Pius XII’s positive relationship with the Jewish people began in Pacelli’s youth with his close childhood friend, an Orthodox Jewish boy named Guido Mendes”, said Elliot Hershberg of the Pave the Way Foundation. “Pacelli would share in Shabbat meals, he learned to read Hebrew and borrow the books of the great rabbinic scholars.” (,to%20save%20Jewish%20lives%20and%20protect%20Jewish%20traditions.)

Talmud Sanhedrin 58b – “And Reish Lakish says: A gentile who observed Shabbat is liable to receive the death penalty, as it is stated: “And day and night shall not cease” (Genesis 8:23), which literally means: And day and night they shall not rest. This is interpreted homiletically to mean that the descendants of Noah may not take a day of rest. And the Master said (57a) that their prohibition is their death penalty, i.e., the punishment for any prohibition with regard to descendants of Noah is execution. (
Sanhedrin 58a-b: The Sins of the Non-Jew

“They had been good friends, and Prof. Mendes recalled visiting the home of the Pacelli family, who were of princely stock and had always been closely associated with the Vatican. . . ‘When Pacelli came to my home, he asked to borrow my copy of Rabbi Ben Hamozeg’s work Apologetica and Dogmatica,’Prof. Mendes recalled. (Library : Exposing Hitler’s Pope and Its Author | Catholic Culture)

“If you examine Pacelli’s life, you’ll find early friendships with Jewish schoolmates; an appreciation for Jewish theology; support for the Jewish community in America, when he visited in 1936; sympathy for the Jewish people in the Holy Land, and an openness toward their yearning for a Jewish state – long before Israel was established; and an affirmation of both Jews and Judaism.” (Researcher finds proof of widespread Jewish support for Pope Pius XII | Catholic News Agency)

L’Osservatore Romano, the daily newspaper published by the Vatican Press, was founded in 1861 by Marcantonio Pacelli, the grandfather of Eugenio Pacelli (Pope Pius XII). L’Osservatore Romano has been published for more than 160 years as the semi-official newspaper of the Vatican. (L’Osservatore Romano (Weekly Vatican Magazine) – Christ the Priest)

“Marcantonio Pacelli had come to Rome earlier in the century from the Province of Viterbo when his brother Ernesto, a member of the Rothschild banking firm, undertook to facilitate a sizable loan to the Papal States under Pope Gregory XVI.”

The Pacelli family originated as a nobility from Viterbo near the region of Tuscany and Siena. Viterbo had a large Jewish population which was banished by Pope Pius V around 1569. (Ahuwah Zeus – StopTheCrime)

“After Pius V was elected to the papacy, the Jews were expelled from all the minor cities of the papal states (1569). Ten families were readmitted to Viterbo in 1586, but in 1593 they were definitely banished. Later, Jewish merchants were allowed to visit the town only during the fair; at one of these, in 1705, a group of Jews were accused of a blood libel but they were acquitted the following year.”

“In the 16th century, persecution of Jews by the Catholic Church spurred both an emigration of Jews out of Italy and a strong internal migration from southern and central Italy to northern Italy.” (Italian Resources for Jewish Genealogy)

Eugenio Pacelli and Cardinal Gasparri forged a working relationship, and it was Gasparri, who was appointed Secretary of State in 1914 by Benedict XV, whom Pacelli succeeded as Secretary of State in 1930. It was these canonists who were, during the reigns of Pius X and Benedict XV, to completely codify Roman Catholic canon law and to forge the centralized Papacy set forth by Pius IX and Leo XIII.

“Br.” Alex Bugnolo (, goes so far as to say that Pope Pius XI and Pius XII were traitors to Christ for bringing in the Jewish banker Bernardio Nogara to manage the Vatican’s finances. “Pius XI gave Nogara permission to invest without any regard to Church teaching. Both are grave violations of the moral law established by Our Lord. Thus objectively they must be regarded as traitors to Our Divine Master’s Magisterium.” (Bernardino Nogara: The Man whose life-history proves that Pius XI & Pius XII were nefarious traitors to Christ | From Rome)

Fr. Eugenio Pacelli

Fr. Eugenio Pacelli entered into the Vatican diplomatic corps and was placed under the tutelage of Cardinal Mariano Rampolla, Secretary of State for Pope Leo XIII.Early life of Pope Pius XII – Wikipedia

UnderminingOfTheCatholicChurch.pdf ( pg. 38.

“Pacelli, as a young priest during the reign of Leo XIII, came to the attention of Cardinal Mariano Rampolla. After ordination to the priesthood in 1899, Pacelli studied canon law, a family tradition. Monsignor Pietro Gasparri in 1901 was Under-secretary in the Department of Extraordinary Affairs which dealt with Foreign Affairs and was part of the Secretariat of State. He was a renowned canon lawyer. It was he who invited Pacelli to join the Secretariat of State as an apprendista, effectively an intern in Gasparri’s department.” Pius XII Part 1 – 2 March 1939 — 9 October 1958 (

Some of Rampolla’s supporters at this time were Bishop Pietro Gasparri, Rampolla’s Under-Secretary of State, Msgr della Chiesa, and his private secretary, Eugenio Pacelli. When Pope Leo XIII died in 1903, it was widely expected that Cardinal Rampolla would become Pope. Pope Leo’s Secretary, who was so influential that he had the numbers to succeed Leo, was vetoed in 1903 by the Austrian Emperor in a surprise move. (Cardinal Rampolla – the archetypal Freemason cleric – Ecclesiastical Freemasonry (

The West Australian, Tuesday July 21st, 1903

Felix Causas, a Sedevacantist (individuals who hold that the Holy See has been vacant either since 1130, 1515, 1846, 1914, or 1958), in his article The Freemason Cardinal Mariano ù Rampolla ù, High Luciferian Initiate of the O. T.O., Secretary of State for Pope Leo XXIII, goes so far as to affirm that all the Secretaries of State (second highest figure in the Roman Catholic Church after the Pope, often seen as a stepping-stone to the Papacy itself), from Pius IX to the present, have been appointed by Freemasonry, and to criticize, among others, the same Popes St. Pius X, Benedict XV and Pius XII. (Virgo-Maria N° 144)

Cardinal Jan Puzyna, who delivered the veto of Cardinal Rampolla on behalf of the Austrian Emperor, would write in his notes during the 1903 papal conclave, “Many cardinals [are] vile creatures of Rampolla, by his appointment– dreadful personages.” (Vatican newspaper publishes details of conclave that elected St. Pius X | News Headlines | Catholic Culture)

Secret Conclave papers show how Saint Pius X was not meant to become Pope (

Craig Heimbicher, in his book “Blood on the Altar: The Secret History of the World’s Most Dangerous Secret Society“, states that Monsignor Ernest Jouin (renowned Roman Catholic expert on the Jewish-Freemasonic conspiracy and especially sensitive to the presence of Freemasons among the clergy) was said to have intervened personally with Emperor Franz Joseph to ask for the Jus exclusivae or “Right of Exclusion” to be invoked, having procured evidence that Cardinal Rampolla was, in fact, a Freemason that had been initiated into Freemasonry during his sojourn in Madrid.  Later, under the reign of St. Pius X himself, Rampolla succeeded in influencing men who would later have the opportunity to shape the papacy in the twentieth century.

Through Rampolla, who “influenced key men,” (namely Giacomo Paolo Giovanni Battista della Chiesa (Pope Benedict XV), Eugenio Pacelli (Pope Pius XII), Pietro Gasparri (Cardinal Gasparri), Angelo Roncalli (Pope John XXIII), Giovanni Montini (Pope Paul VI), Cardinal Eugène Tisserant, and Archbishop Annibale Bugnini), the Ordo Templi Orientis had the opportunity to give counsel, plant seeds and ultimately shape policy within the Vatican in the following decades, notes Mr. Heimbichner.  He follows the trail of influence down to Freemason Archbishop Annibale Bugnini, architect of the destruction of the Tridentine Mass.

After the 1903 papal conclave, Rampolla was replaced as Secretary of State by Bishop Merry del Val; other progressive prelates, supporters of Rampolla, still held their important posts in the Vatican.  Rampolla became head of the Holy Office of the Inquisition (body responsible for fighting heresy and defending Catholic doctrine) in 1908 and Vatican librarian in 1912 before his death in 1913.

Monsignor Jouin, who was instrumental in convincing the Austrian Emperor to veto the papal vote for Cardinal Rampolla on the grounds he was affiliated with freemasonry, was eventually honored for his work combating Judeo-Freemasonry with Pope Benedict XV’s Apostolic Blessing and a personal letter signed by the Pope’s Secretary of State Cardinal Gasparri who was a close disciple of Rampolla. Jouin was made an Honorary Prelate by Pope Benedict XV, Rampolla’s closest friend and collaborator.

Revisionist historian Michael Hoffman, in his book The Occult Renaissance Church of Rome, highlights the “two steps forward, one step back” chess moves of the post-Renaissance Papacy. Hoffman states, “Both the New Age occultist, the Protestant Fundamentalist, and the “conservative” Catholic believe that the Church of Rome in the Renaissance period under study, was the nemesis of all that Judaism represented, when in truth it was the vessel into which Judaism poured its Talmudic and Kabbalistic sorceries and iniquities. After these had been fully absorbed into the corpus of the Church at the highest levels, only then did the Renaissance and post-Renaissance pontiffs mount their theatre of ostentatious “persecution” of Judaics, which was still so much of a charade that when Pope Leo XIII issued his encyclical contra Freemasonry (Humanum Genus, 1884), he scrupulously omitted all mention of the Brotherhood’s most virulent source of inspiration and direction, the rabbinic Kabbalah.” (Hoffman, Michael, Occult Renaissance Church of Rome, pg. 24.

If Mgr. Jouin’s allegations of Cardinal Rampolla’s affiliation with Freemasonry are in fact true, it is highly likely that Cardinal Gasparri, a close friend of Rampolla and connected with the Pacelli and Rothschild bankers, promoted Mgr. Jouin to Vatican honorary prelate as a gesture to give off the impression that the Catholic Church under the Pontificate of Pope Benedict XV was completed devoted to eradicating Freemasonry and Judaism, while within the hierarchy, the Rampolla “cabal” remained firmly entrenched within the Vatican. (

Pius XII: Sympathy for Zionism

“During World War I, the American Jewish Committee of New York petitioned the Vatican for a statement on the “ill–treatment” suffered by Jewish people in Poland. The response came on February 9, 1916, from the office of the Secretary of State, where Eugenio Pacelli was—by absolutely every account—working hand–in–hand with Cardinal Secretary of State Gasparri.”

This response was published in the New York Times on April 17, 1916 under the headline: “Papal Bull Urges Equality for Jews.” It also appeared in Civiltà Cattolica on April 28 of that year, and in the London Tablet on April 29. ( 1/3 down &

Rising up in the diplomatic ranks, Pope Benedict XV appointed Pacelli as papal nuncio to Bavaria on April 23, 1917, consecrating him as titular Bishop of Sardis and immediately elevating him to archbishop in the Sistine Chapel on May 13, 1917. (

As there was no nuncio to Prussia or Germany at the time, Pacelli was, for all practical purposes, the nuncio to all of the German Empire.

Kosher Slaughter


Pope Pius XII

Known as a vigorous champion of the Vatican’s anti-Nazi policy, before Hitler’s accession, Pacelli gave 44 major addresses in Germany, 40 of which condemned some aspect of Nazism. In 1937 Cardinal Eugenio Pacelli (later Pius XII) wrote Pope Pius XI’s encyclical Mit Brennender Sorge (With Burning Concern). Pacelli was also credited with changing the title from Mit grosser Sorge (With great concern) to the more strident Mit brennender Sorge (With burning concern). It was then smuggled into Germany, secretly distributed, and read at Mass on Palm Sunday, March 14, 1937. (

The Jewish War Veterans of the United States –among the oldest such organizations in the country—and its publication, the Jewish Veteran, took the lead. In its March 1939 issue, just as Cardinal Eugenio Pacelli became Pius XII, the Jewish Veteran welcomed the breaking news with an editorial entitled, “Hail Pope Pius XII!” Its April issue went further: “The anti-Semitic clique in the Fascist party, headed by Roberto Farinacci, was shocked by the election of Cardinal Pacelli by unanimous vote in the third ballot, as the new Pope. His election is however a source of great satisfaction to Jews. Pope Pius XII is known as a staunch friend of Jews and on several occasions expressed his strong opposition to the persecution of Jews in Germany and Italy. In accordance with his instructions, as Papal Secretary to the late Pope Pius XI, distinguished Jewish visitors to the Vatican were served with kosher food. Known as a vigorous champion of the Vatican’s anti-Nazi policy, the anti-Semitic Fascists tried hard to prevent Cardinal Pacelli’s election. Their failure demonstrates the lack of influence of anti-Semites in the princes of the Catholic Church.” (Pope Pius XII and Dietrich von Hildebrand – two giants with a common purpose | Catholicism Pure & Simple (

Book Review – “The extraordinary story told by Connelly reveals not only that Catholic magisterium is able to change its mind, but also that a doctrinal renewal of this kind may well begin as a small movement in the Church, frowned upon by the hierarchy, that gradually finds acceptance among Catholic and their theologians to be finally affirmed by the highest authority. In the present winter of the Catholic Church it is good to be reminded of the innovative power of Spirit-guided movements within Catholicism.”Gregory Baum, The Ecumenist

After the election of Cardinal Pacelli to the Papacy, President Roosevelt cabled: “With great joy I learned of your election to the papacy. I recall with pleasure our last conversation during your visit to the U.S.A. He even received the applause of the official organ of the French Communist Party, L’Humanite, which on March 3, 1939, called him “an adversary of the racial standpoint and a friend of freedom of conscience and human dignity.” Equally delighted were the French Socialists.

Fr.Coughlin, popularly coined “The Radio Priest”, was extremely popular in the United States during the 1930’s.

Pope Pius XII and Cardinal Spellman, the “American Pope”

Ordained in 1916 by Archbishop Pacelli (the future Pope Pius XII), he reigned as Archbishop and Cardinal of New York City from 1939 until his death in 1967.

Pacelli had been groomed from birth for the papacy. Spellman knew instinctively that here was a man worthy of his attention. Pacelli found the young American “refreshing.” Only two months after Pacelli had returned to Rome and received the red hat in a secret consistory held on December 16, 1929, Pope Pius XI made him Secretary of State. Pacelli’s career was on the move and so was that of Spellman whom Roman prelates in the know now referred to as “Pacelli’s pet.” (The Rite of Sodomy: Homosexuality and the Roman Catholic Church : Randy Engel : Free Download, Borrow, and Streaming : Internet Archive pg. 638.)

“In the spring of 1930, the newly consecrated Cardinal Pacelli took off with Spellman for a much needed vacation to the Institute Stella Maris in Switzerland operated by the Sisters of the Holy Cross of Menzingen. It was at the Swiss retreat house that Spellman first met the German nun Pascalina, who was to become Cardinal Pacelli’s housekeeper- companion at the Vatican. After an initial rocky relationship, the two personalities came to trust and depend on one another. Their bond of friendship based on their mutual affection for Pacelli never wavered even after the pontiff’s death in 1958.” (The Rite of Sodomy: Homosexuality and the Roman Catholic Church : Randy Engel : Free Download, Borrow, and Streaming : Internet Archive pg. 639.)

Starting in the 1930’s, Secretary of State Eugenio Pacelli came to rely upon Spellman as his “go-to” man for all things American. (The Crisis Starts With Cardinal Spellman | The Wanderer Newspaper (

Pope Pius XII “did more than anybody in the world ever did for the Jews,” says Fr. Charles Murr, author of a book about his friendship with the close advisor to Pius XII Sister Pascalina, “and Mother Pascalina was right there to help him.” (The story of The Godmother, advisor to Pope Pius XII – Catholic World Report)

On June 28, 1944, Archbishop Francis Spellman of New York broadcast a strong appeal to Hungarian Catholics deploring the anti–Jewish measures, which, he said, “shocked all men and women who cherish a sense of justice and human sympathy.” These measures were, he said, “in direct contradiction of the doctrines of the Catholic faith professed by the vast majority of the Hungarian people.” He called it incredible “that a nation which has been so consistently true to the impulses of human kindness and the teachings of the Catholic Church should now yield to a false, pagan code of tyranny.” Time magazine reported: “This week listeners at Europe’s thirty–six million radio sets might have heard New York’s Archbishop Francis Joseph Spellman preaching civil disobedience. The Archbishop’s . . . broadcast . . . eloquently urged Hungary’s nine million Catholics to disobey their government’s new anti–Semitic decrees.” The Allies dropped printed copies of it over Hungary. Spellman later confirmed that he had made the statement at the express request of Pope Pius XII.” (Hitler, Pope Pius XII, Jews, Catholics, Truth (

Pope Pius XII appointed Richard Cushing as Archbishop of Boston in 1944, who would later become embroiled in the Boston Heresy Case vs Father Leonard Feeney, who accused the Boston Hierarchy of heresy in 1949 over the application of the Roman Catholic doctrine of Extra Ecclesiam Nulla Salus or“Outside The Catholic Church There Is No Salvation”, resulting in Fr.Feeney’s excommunication.

Letter from Cardinal Cushing to Catholic-Jewish prelate Cardinal Augustin Bea during the 2nd Vatican Council – “These two statements, Religious Liberty and Nostra Aetate of the 2nd Vatican Council, that gives special consideration of the Jews, will of course be misinterpreted as simply political. It’s not political.” 58:20 – 59:45.

“In many ways, the prelate was a Cardinal for all the people. Before such pursuits became standard, he worked tirelessly to build bridges of understanding between Catholics, Protestants and Jews. He preached in synagogues and Masonic temples and Protestant pulpits in what was once the stronghold of Puritanism.

The Cardinal’s impassioned plea at the Second Vatican Council for religious liberty and rejection of the doctrine that held the Jews as a people to be responsible for the crucifix ion of Jesus prompted the assembled bishops to break a rule of silence to applaud the crusty Bostonian’s heart.”

Pope Pius XII and Opus Dei

Opus Dei, formally known as The Prelature of the Holy Cross and Opus Dei, is an organization of the Roman Catholic Church that teaches that everyone is called to holiness and that ordinary life is a path to sanctity. Founded in Spain in 1928 by the Catholic priest St. Josemaría Escrivá, Opus Dei was given final approval in 1950 by Pope Pius XII. (

Pope Pius XII, the first Pope who personally met St. Josemaría Escrivá, the founder of Opus Dei said of him: “He is a true saint, a man sent by God for our times.” (

Excerpt from the article The Popes and The Prelature of the Holy Cross and Opus Dei – “Opus Dei was in favor under Pope Pius XII, who reigned from 1939 to 1958.  During 1943, with World War II at its height, it took less than 6 months for the Vatican to approve creation of Escrivá’s “Priestly Society of the Holy Cross” as an adjunct to Opus Dei. In 1947, less than 12 months after the founder made the request to Pius XII, the Pope made Opus Dei and its priestly affiliate a “secular pontifical institute.” This gave the movement what Opus Dei historians describe as “universal juridical standing” and “convenient internal autonomy,” protecting it from “incomprehension and persecution.” In 1950, Pius XII made the “pontifical institute” status permanent, and approved the movement’s charter and statutes; in 1952, he appointed Cardinal Federico Tedeschini as “Protector” of Opus Dei. Tad Szulc, a biographer of John Paul II, notes that “very quietly, Opus Dei was acquiring influence all over the world, at strategic points in Church establishments and … very discreetly in political and business circles.” (

We are ecumenical, Holy Father, but we haven’t learned ecumenism from Your Holiness,” Msgr. Escriva allowed himself to say to Pope John XXIII on one occasion. Pope John Paul I laughed, because he knew that since 1950 Pope Pius XII had authorized Opus Dei to receive non-Catholics and non-Christians as cooperating associates. (

“Among the outstanding connections of Opus Dei with Judaism, let us cite, for example, the Cardinal of Jewish origin, Augustine Bea – the confessor of the then reigning Pontiff, His Holiness Pius XII – who was one of the ecclesiastical hierarchies that supported Opus Dei and Escriva the most, both economically and through his traffic of influence in the corridors and corridors of the Vatican, with whom he was linked by ties of blood and friendship. The Jewish Cardinal Bea was the promoter and creator of controversial documents of the Second Vatican Council, such as those referring to religious liberalism, to the Jewish people – to which he belonged -, to the relations of the Church with the sects or catapulting Opus Dei with all kinds of help and recommendations.” Opus Judei by Alfonso Carlos de Borbón (

Reform of the Roman Catholic Liturgy

Annibale Bugnini, appointed secretary to the Commission for Liturgical Reform on May 28th, 1948 by Pope Pius XII stated in his autobiography The reform of the liturgy, 1948-1975, “We had the full confidence of Pope Pius XII” – pgs. 9, 61, 385, 423.  (The reform of the liturgy, 1948-1975 : Bugnini, Annibale : Free Download, Borrow, and Streaming : Internet Archive)

Three Radical Liturgical Changes (Pope Pius XII) & Exorcising Bugnini from the Roman Rite

Pope Pius XII with Melkite Patriarch of Antioch, Maximos IV, circa 1948.

(Maximos IV Sayegh – Wikipedia) – One of the Fathers of the 2nd Vatican Council & proponent of vernacularized liturgy.

Melkite Patriarch Maximos was quoted at Vatican 2 stating, “We must fight to ensure that Latinism and Catholicism are no longer synonymous, that the Catholic must be open to every culture, every spirit, and every form of organization aligned with the unity of faith and love. At the same time, by our own example, we must urge the Orthodox Church to recognize that union with the Throne of Peter can be achieved without having them abandon Orthodoxy.” (Katolisism Is Not The Same As Latinism – Katolisitas Indonesia (

“Patriarch Maximos IV of the Melkites took part in the Second Vatican Council. There, contrary to the respect that the Eastern Church is supposed to have for Catholic and Apostolic Tradition, he championed use of the vulgar tongues at the Divine services. He fostered what has come to be known as the “Aramaic Error,” a disinformation campaign whose purpose was to justify the use of the vulgar tongues, even in the West. This fraud was exposed by the noted theologian, Msgr. Klaus Gamber, in his 1979 Die Reform des Römischen Liturgie: Vorgeschicte und Problematic, for whose 1992 French edition, then Card. Ratzinger wrote a laudatory preface. There is no doubt that Christ used not Aramaic for sacred purposes, but Hebrew, which, since the Babylonian Captivity of the sixth century, B.C. had not been a vernacular tongue, but a sacred language, like Latin, reserved for the temple and the synagogue and the Hebrew ceremonial.” (TRADITIO Traditional Roman Catholic Network Article – Eastern Patriarch Helped Introduce the Corruption of Vulgar Tongues into the West, promoted the “Aramaic Error,” Which Was Subsequently Exposed as a Fraud (scroll ¾ down)

Archbishop Annibale Bugnini, who was instrumental in forming Pope Pius XII’s 1955 Holy Week reforms, was eventually appointed by Pope Paul VI to create the new vernacular Roman Catholic liturgy. “In a bold reference to the Masonic dictum found on the reverse side of the American dollar bill, the name of his new liturgy was the Novus Ordo Missae, Latin for “New Order of Mass.” (20.

Similarly, Pope Paul VI in his 1969 papal encyclical Missale Romanum said, “The beginning of this renewal was the work of Our predecessor, this same Pius XII, in the restoration of the Paschal Vigil and of the Holy Week Rite, which formed the first stage of updating the Roman Missal for the present-day mentality.” (Missale Romanum (April 3, 1969) | Paul VI (

Pope Pius XII and the Second Vatican Council

“If you study the indexes of the Vatican II documents, you can easily see that, after the citations of Sacred Scripture, the citations from the writings of Pope Pius XII are the most numerous,” the late Cardinal Giuseppe Siri said in his address at the Sixth General Assembly of the 1983 Synod of Bishops. (The Fundamental Role Played by Pius XII in the Preparations for Vatican II – Inside The Vatican)

Venerable Pius XII – Papal Artifacts

“Pope Pius XII predicted and paved the way for the Council. Just think of the liturgical reform initiated by him with the encyclical Mediator Dei or the encyclical Divine Afflante Spiritu on the study of Sacred Scripture. The Council therefore concluded what was started under his pontificate.” (The Fundamental Role Played by Pius XII in the Preparations for Vatican II – Inside The Vatican)

“Therefore any “confrontation” between Pius XII and John XXIII is pure nonsense, as already pointed out by Paul VI himself, who decided to simultaneously initiate the cause of beatification of his two predecessors. And just to show his veneration for his predecessor, John XXIII in his first radio message for Christmas on December 23, 1958, called him “Doctor optimus, Ecclesiae sanctae lumen, divinae legis amator” (“Excellent doctor, beacon of the Holy Church, lover of divine law”). These are the three titles conferred by a liturgical antiphon on Doctors of the Church.” (Ibid.)

Nothing could be further from the truth.

In 1958, at the death of Pope Pius XII, Golda Meir, then Israel’s Minister of Foreign Affairs, delivered a eulogy on behalf of the nation of Israel to the United Nations, stating: “We share the grief of the world over the death of His Holiness Pius XII. During a generation of wars and dissensions, he affirmed the high ideals of peace and compassion. During the 10 years of Nazi terror, when our people went through the horrors of martyrdom, the Pope raised his voice to condemn the persecutors and to commiserate with their victims. The life of our time has been enriched by a voice which expressed the great moral truths above the tumults of daily conflicts. We grieve over the loss of a great defender of peace.” (Pius XII and the Jews during World War II – Michael Journal)

“The Pope was loved and respected. Of those mourning his death in 1958, Jews—who credited Pius XII with being one of their greatest defenders and benefactors in their hour of greatest need—stood in the forefront.” (Fr. Pierre Blet, S.J.: Pius XII and the Second World War: According to the Archives of the Vatican – Catholic League)
