Vatican Newspaper Under Pope Francis Praises Karl Marx the Founder of Communism

The L’Osservatore Romano is the daily newspaper of the Vatican City State. The paper was founded in 1861. It is classified as a semi-official newspaper of the Holy See.

The paper this week praised communist founder Karl Marx.

More than a 100 million people were killed by communist regimes in the 20th century.

Previous popes condemned the evil of communism. Not Pope Francis. This is a confusing time for the Catholic Church.

There really is no excuse for this.

CNS News reported:

Several weeks back, Pope Francis was criticized for reportedly claiming “there is no Hell” — a claim he did not deny — and now his own newspaper at the Vatican, L’Osservatore Romano, has published an article that applauds German Cardinal Reinhard Marx for his praise of the founder of Communism, Karl Marx.

In the May 6 article, headlined Marx in controluce (Closer to Marx), Cardinal Reinhard Marx speaks proudly of Karl Marx, who wrote the Communist Manifesto, and whose teaching has been denounced by the Catholic Church and multiple Popes since the 19th century.

Karl Marx’s 200th birthday was on May 5, a birthday that Cardinal Marx applauded in an interview last week and said “we should commemorate.”

Nonetheless, as the respected Catholic blog “The Eponymous Flower” details and translates, “In yesterday’s Sunday edition of the Italian Osservatore Romano, an initiative of Cardinal Reinhard Marx, Archbishop of Munich and Freising, President of the German Bishops’ Conference and member of the C9 Cardinal Council, was benevolently published: the ‘canonization’ of Karl Marx.”

The L’Osservatore Romano article states: “We are all on the shoulders of Karl Marx. That does not mean that he is a church father.”

“This outrageous formulation reserved for former popes and church leaders means that Karl Marx is not a church father, but almost one,” reports The Eponymous Flower.
