KEYS OF THIS BLOOD: POPE JOHN PAUL II VERSUS RUSSIA AND THE WEST FOR CONTROL OF THE NEW WORLD ORDER
by Malachi Martin
Release Date: 15 September, 1991
I thought that this was excellent and fast-moving, despite it's intimidating size and subject matter. Fr. Martin writes succinctly and beautifully, his research and knowledge of the subject are obvious. I always obtain many insights from his writing, and this is no different. Wonderful insights into the geopolitical plans of all the various international power brokers. A striking part for me was the succinct history of Poland, from the time that they were just tribes, to the civilizing of Eastern Europe, their 3 pacts with God and the Church, and the history of Cardinal Wyzinski and Cardinal Wojtyla, and the role they played in the history of that great Catholic country. Fr. Martin helped me to understand a little bit where Pope John Paul is coming from, although the events have progressed 6 years beyond the scope of the story. I also sensed Fr. Martin's great love for Pope John Paul II. I have loved every book I've read by Fr. Martin. May God rest his soul.
Malachi Martin's work is a veritable "tour de force." With authority (he was one of the world's foremost Vatican Scholars), skill and erudtion he meticulously traces the geopolitical ambitions of Rome from beginning, i.e. Christ's alleged comments to Peter that upon him the church would be built, to end where the Vatican winds up in charge of the One World Government. Martin posits that anyone who was under the age of 70 at the time this book was written would be alive to see the day when the nation-state, as we know it, would cease to exist.
What will be most surprising to most readers is how intimately involved the Papacy is in world politics, all for the purpose of establishing the Catholic Church as the One World Government. (See Revelation 13, 17).
Whether or not Pope John Paul II turns out to be the eventual ruler of the One World Order is irrelevant. Dr. Martin's book goes into exhaustive detail how this Pope, more than any of his predecessors in this century, has worked feverishly to keep the Vatican on the world stage as a major player. Karol Woytila has had a clear-eyed view of what the church's role should be in world affairs dating back to the time when he was a priest during the Second World War working undercover for the US Government. He learned well at the feet of the master in this regard; Stephen Cardinal Wysinzski took the young cleric under his wing during the formative years of his priesthood, and the account of his tutelage of Woytila is spellbinding.
Readers will be fascinated to learn just how much the Vatican was behind the fall of Communism in Eastern Europe, and just how closely the US and Vatican work on foreign policy issues.
This book could very well be subtitled "Prophecy Made Clear by Modern Events." John Paul II is the "Servant of the Grand Design;" papal hegemonist ambitions are in plain view. A blockbuster!!
