The Final Nail in Malachi Martin's Coffin

For the 50th anniversary of the opening of the Second Vatican Council.

We recently documented that Malachi Martin wrote the book, The Pilgrim under the pseudonym Michael Serafian.

The CV from Malachi Martin's other books confirms that he was the author of The Pilgrim

According to the biography of Rabbi Abraham Heschel, Spiritual Radical (pp.253-254), Rabbi Heschel, with the AJC, arranged for Malachi Martin's book, The Pilgrim to be published as a political tactic in hopes that it would influence deliberation on the draft for Nostra Aetate which had met setbacks at the close of the second session of the Second Vatican Council.  

The Pilgrim was published in May of 1964, between the second and third sessions of the council. As we will see below the book was calculated to impart to Catholics the message "You are Nazis," and that Christianity 'paved the road to Auschwitz' and is therefore in need of radical reform. We previously documented Rabbi Heschel's candid admission that he intended to attack Christian souls by such 'dialogue.' It will probably be news to most traditional Catholics that their prophet Malachi Martin was Rabbi Heschel's comrade in this attack.

The Pilgrim was flanked by similar editorials, articles and interviews published in the New York Times, Time magazine and elsewhere. One article published October 1964 in The Jewish World quoted an unnamed Vatican source invoking extermination language saying "the Most Holy Father still has not made up his mind on the Jewish issue at this time, the final solution is still to come."

Those familiar with Malachi Martin may recall his admission to Ben L. Kaufman of the Cincinnati Inquirer that during the Second Vatican Council he "enjoyed" making Cardinals who didn't go along with the Nostra Aetate agenda sweat by "shaking long-closeted skeletons" at them ("Jesus Now Author Not A Swashbuckler," Ben L. Kaufman, The Cincinnati Enquirer, December 22, 1973). Traditionalists have typically interpreted this to mean that Martin dug up dirt on prelates of a personally sinful nature.

I submit that at the dawning of the "post-Auschwitz" dispensation there was no 'skeleton' more terrifying than accusations of 'anti-Semitism.'

With that thought in mind, consider some 'skeleton shaking' from Malachi Martin's writing in, The Pilgrim:

There is yet another tension which is ominous for Christianity because its roots not only go back to the very origins of Christianity, but involve the historical act of Jesus Christ by which Christianity came into being as a principle. The tension is that between Jew and Christian, the historical act is the sacrifice and death of Jesus himself. The manifestation of this tension on the part of Christians is generally called anti-semitism or Hebraeophobia ...

... if we listen to the chorus of the ages, we find a strangely consistent note of disapproval, sometimes of hate, and always of unmitigated condemnation for the Jew, as such, echoing down the corridors of time and blending with latter day sentiments which can be recognized as nothing else but rank anti-Semitism. And these ancient voices are not merely those of secular or freelance thinkers: they are no less than the Fathers of the Church, an Irenaeus, a Tertullian, a John Chrysostom, an Augustine, as well as Aquinas, modern theologians and ancient exegetes, an Origen, Grotius, a Müller.

Somehow or other, the stream of this perennial Christian bias grates on our modern ears, and yet there is hardly any Christian or Catholic who cannot, in spite of himself, hear some echo in his own sentiments. 
... It  is true that we can set down a list of statements by popes theologians, saints, writers, to show that the extremer forms of anti-Semitism ... are not admissable. But none ever asserted the religious rights of Judaism in itself, nor declared that Judaism was a valid moral outlook, nor has any theologian or theological school courageously re-examined the millennial attitude of Christians and Catholics to the Jews. (Malachi Martin aka. "Michael Serafian," The Pilgrim, pp.44-46)
Martin then goes on to re-examine Christianity himself, finding fault in the "radically changed outlook" of St. John's Gospel which he finds at variance with Sts. Peter and Paul (who themselves are not without blame, according to Martin). By the time we reach page 49, Martin is weaving Christianity into a tapestry with Nazi 'extermination' camps:

From the 6th century onwards, we find that anti-Semitism is an integral part of Christianity. And down to our own day, it has taken various forms. It may assume the form of an accepted radicalism with sociological overtones, in business, in social life, at the club, on the beach: one does not marry into Jewish circles or consort with Jews, for they are a different race with different customs and differing mentality. It may take the form of mere isolationism: the Jew is somebody apart, somebody irrevocably separate from the truth. Here there is an instant refusal to treat them like others, a blind feeling that this person, the Jew, is marked out by divine decision as untouchable. It may, though, take on a more mobile form: the Jews are to be reckoned with as active enemies of the Faith, and therefore they must be restricted, watched warily. It may, finally, go further and translate such feelings into action: the Jews must be expelled, must be warned, must be punished, must be dispossessed, must be liquidated.

In these extremest forms, we meet some phantasmagoric developments: the Protocols of Sion, The Nazi Final Solution, the massacres by their Catholic Majesties of Spain, the so-called Judeo-Communist world plot against Christianity, and the unholy alliance between the Grand Lodge and the Synagogue to subvert Christian principles. In whatever form or shade or colouring we meet this anti-Semitism, its peculiarly Christian characteristic is clear.
...  Between the burning and plundering of all Jewish synagogues in Mesopotamia in 388 A.D. on the order of the Bishop of Callinicum and the destruction and desecration of all synagogues under the recent Nazi regime, we cannot but see a relationship of origin. And no one conscious of what has made modern Europe can deny that the pyres and the crematoria, the mephitic smoke and stench of the extermination camps in Nazi Germany, were, if not the logical conclusion, at least one extremist consequence of the normal Christian attitude to the Jews. Here we see Christianity standing at the thin edge of self-destruction due to this admitted tension, moving to what Laurence Dobie has called aptly the anus mundi [i.e. anus of the world], the ultimate in excretion of the badness which Christianity never undertook to extirpate. (Malachi Martin aka. "Michael Serafian," The Pilgrim, pp.49-52)
As we can see from Malachi Martin's own words, he was not merely a womanizer, liberal, spy, and con-man, but one of the most treacherous figures in the entire history of the Church, a hater of Christians and Christianity at its very core and an active destroyer of both. He was a partner of Rabbi Heschel and the AJC in attacking Christianity and Christians' souls, invoking Nazi exterminationist imagery in the international press to instill guilt and embarrassment to shape the outcome of a Church council.

Martin worked with Rabbi Heschel and the AJC towards the outlandish and hypocritical goal of promulgation of a Church document which would denounce Christian pressuring of Judaic conversion while themselves employing the unbearable pressure of outrageous 'anti-Semitism' accusations and Nazi exterminationist comparisons amplified by the international establishment press. They schemed for a condemnation of the charge of Deicide by leveling the charge of Judeocide.

While Heschel and Martin were unsuccessful in achieving the full extent of their ambitions, they did set in course the technique and operation of the 'Holocaust' guilt chambers within the Church which largely accounts for the miserable state of affairs we find ourselves in today.

A Church that apologizes for its teachings and kneels at a counterfeit 'Holocaust' is fit to be trampled upon.

Will traditionalists finally bid good riddance to the bad rubbish of Malachi Martin and come to a proper understanding of what assails them?

I have always said to his traditionalist fans that the test of Malachi Martin’s sincerity was whether he would ever reveal the inside story of Cardnal Bea and Nostra Aetate, since he was Bea’s peritus. Of course he never did. He fooled the marks by writing Windswept House and they let him off the Nostra Aetate hook even though he was at the heart of the conspiracy.

You write, " recall his admission...he "enjoyed"shaking long-closeted skeletons" at them...Traditionalists have typically interpreted this to mean that Martin dug up dirt on prelates of a personally sinful nature.”

Malachi Martin told me about this blackmail tactic, although he used Cardinal Benelli as a stand-in for himself. He said that at the conclave that elected John Paul I, Cardinal Benelli arose and stated, “We exclude by voice vote, all Leftist candidates.” Malachi Martin then told me that Cardinal Benelli had distributed dossiers on certain cardinals containing photos of “their boys, their girls and their masonic papers."

Thank you for that information, Michael. I have no doubt that Martin would use whatever leverage was at his disposal to achieve his ends. And there is, no doubt, much personal sin to be leveraged in Rome.

Still, I believe the average bureaucrat, if offered the choice, would prefer to face even pedophilia charges than charges of 'anti-semitism' and could likely more easily rehabilitate their reputations from the former.

In any event, this is an incident of 'skeleton shaking' from Malachi Martin on a large scale that is irrefutably documented.

"I have always said to his traditionalist fans that the test of Malachi Martin’s sincerity was whether he would ever reveal the inside story of Cardnal Bea and Nostra Aetate, since he was Bea’s peritus. Of course he never did."


Even in an interview given the year he died he exculpated himself by claiming he thought that Nostra Aetate went too far and that was why he left Rome. The truth is that he was pushing far beyond Nostra Aetate for years after he left Rome and getting paid for it.

Here is Malachi Martin in 1999:

"I started off as an advisor on Judaism," he continues. "I was trained in Semitic languages and I spent a year and a half studying the Talmud... Then my superiors in Rome also found that I understood Judaism very well. They wanted someone to explain it, since they were studying the whole question of Jewish-Christian relations. So I was drafted into helping with that."

And the outcome? "They produced a document in which they sort of absolved the Jewish people of the death of Christ."

Based on his research? "No, not on my research," argues Martin. "I was only a cog in the wheel. I didn't agree with the final document either. It went too far. And then there were conclusions about the need for Catholics to study Judaism and get to know them better."

So this was the ecumenicalization of the Church that was going on?

"That's it in one word," concurs Martin. "And I couldn't agree with the total effect of all that because I thought they went too far."


Compare that with Malachi Martin's opinion of 1970 in his book The Encounter, 5 years after he had left Rome:

"In New York's Roman Catholic Parochial Schools a new course in Judaism and on the Jew in literature was planned for the autumn of 1968. The Sisters of Notra Dame de Sion and the Union of American Hebrew Congregations plan to sponsor jointly a series of two-week institutes on Judaism for Catholic educators. On January 21, 1968, sermons were preached in all 225 Roman Catholic parish churches in Brooklyn and Queens on the theme of 'better understanding and charity towards our Jewish neighbors.' Catholic Universities have inaugurated courses in Judaism given by resident or visiting rabbis. As a means to stem, influence, and destroy Roman Catholic Hebraeophobia, these measures are both necessary and good.

Michael Hoffman said...

MM was another Romney: he would say or do anything to deceive the audience he was addressing. On the liberal Art Bell radio program, long after he had come out as a traditionalist, he said the state had no business getting involved in prohibiting abortion. I hung on to the audio cassettes tapes of that show for years. No traditionalists were interested. This was the time of the extensive ads in trad newspapers for the interviews with MM conducted by a Canadian man, wherein MM was put forth as a kind of tribune of tradition.

He was accustomed to talking over the heads of naive Catholic traditionalists. He would say what they wanted to hear, but now and again he would drop a twilight language word or phrase so the boys in the lodge and the synagogue could share the joke on the dopey trads. One instance of this occurred during a reverent interview with him conducted by the John Birch Society magazine “New American.”

At one point in the interview he said he wanted to write a "Guide for the Perplexed” for Catholics like the one Maimonides had written for “Jews.”

A comment like that from someone who was largely ignorant of the substance of Judaism would be a matter of merely mirroring a pop culture in which Rabbi Maimonides is viewed as a venerable, wise old Judaic sage.

But Malachi Martin was a Louvain theologian, and as you quote his own words about his C.V.: "I was trained in Semitic languages and I spent a year and a half studying the Talmud... Then my superiors in Rome also found that I understood Judaism very well.”

In other words, M.M. knew a great deal about Maimonides. He couldn’t plead ignorance by way of exculpation. Therefore, when he said he wanted to emulate Maimonides, this was extraordinarily perverse praise for the rabbi who hated the ground Jesus Christ walked upon and urged the murder of Christians.

Malachi’s inside joke in citing Maimonides in a favorable light went right over the heads of his Bircher interviewers. He was having a laugh at their expense. He probably died laughing at all the suckers he gulled with his magnificent impersonations. I put him right up there with H.A.R. “Kim” Philby as one of the virtuoso triple agents of 20th century cryptocracy.

Maurice Pinay said...

You've pointed out the 'fun,' trickster element of the Judeomasonic tradition and the difficulty with which it is understood by outsiders.

There are videos of Schneerson that illustrate this. He would tell his disciples when they are out 'being modern on the outside and Chabad on the inside' to do it with a sense of joy. This is essentially teaching them to block inhibitions that the average person with something of a conscience would be restricted by.

While many of these figures are intelligent, in my estimation, their real 'talent' is their shamelessness in their outrageousness which average people, particularly Christians who do have a conscience, just can't see coming or going.

I agree that Martin was a Kim figure. He played whatever role was required pretty well. When we look at his fruits--'Nostra Aetate, 'Holocaust' guilt, mystification--we know from whence he really came.

I could add many examples of the twilight language spoken over the heads of his listeners: on the Art Bell program he once punctuated his message that 'the Church is collapsing' and 'there's no going back' by proclaiming "we're all living stones in this new temple!"

In other interviews Martin made vile, blasphemous comments about the crucifixion which hearken to the Toledoth Jeshu tradition. I can only pity the Christians who were subjected to this filth but remained in his personality cult.

Maurice Pinay said...

On the subject of 'Kim' it's no surprise that Martin would find a home with the Yale/Skull and Bones/ CIA 'traditional Catholic' William F. Buckley.

They were both actors sent in to "drain the swamps" as John Slawson of the AJC and Rabbi Joshua Trachtenberg before him put it. They both deserved the same sendoff that Rabbi Tractenberg would have received if he attempted to 'drain' our 'swamp' himself.

One thing's for sure: no matter who it is, there will be someone who knows how to presume his subjective guilt at the point of death. I hope that Michael Hoffman is ready to endure the presumptions that others will have to say about him when his time comes...

You could ask Father Charles Fiore about Martin, but then again, he's also dead -- hey, Michael, can you likewise divine the interior dispositions of Fr. Fiore??

Maurice Pinay said...

I agree that, based upon the evidence, the probability is that Martin died as he lived. Whatever the case, God knows.

What concerns us who live in the wake of his treachery are his well documented words, deeds and most of all his fruits: inter alia, Nostra Aetate, 'Holocaust' guilt, and a mystified personality cult.

Michael Hoffman said...

Dear Mr. B.G. Matt

While I’m certainly not in Dante’s league, I can assume his literary prerogative with scoundrels like Malachi Martin. Moreover, saying he “probably" went out of this world unrepentant, laughing at the people he gulled, is not the same as situating him in the inferno.

I notice you’re scrupulously concerned about how I present MM in his last days, but the revelations on this page of his string of betrayals merit nary a word. Interesting priorities.

As for what people will say about this writer when my time comes, can’t be too much worse than what has already be said.

Dear Mr. Hoffman,

You wrote, "… what people will say about this writer when my time comes … can’t be too much worse than what has already [been] said."

It sounds to me as if you are underestimating our Judaic friends' capacity for vilification—something they are really good at—or else you are selling yourself seriously short! I tend to believe that your passing will inspire them to an Alp, perhaps even a Himalaya, of calumnious fantasy. It's not as if they lack for media outlets or willing, indeed eager, stooges.

Malachi Martin gave an interview with the press and his interview was published. Gary Guiffre has a copy of the newspaper. In it, he told the interviewer that his grandfther or his ancestors were Jewish Iberian bankers. May be one of his many lies, but that is what he said. Well, it wouldn't surprise me. He was, after all, a Jesuit, and the order started out as a Jewish outfit, and in my opinion, since then, it never changed. I wish someone would determine whether he was ever ordained. I have some clues that he never was. It would be important to know. His background is so sketchy and he went to so many schools and stayed not very long in any one of them. It's a good background to have to explain why no one can say they went to school with him. He went to the Hebrew University in Jersualem and was probably one of those forgers of the "dead sea scrolls"
