Joseph Goebbels was born into a strict Catholic, working-class
family from Rheydt, in the Rhineland, on 29 October 1897.
He was educated at a Roman Catholic school and went on
to study history and literature at the University of Heidelberg.
Goebbels was exempted from military service during World
War I because of a crippled foot - the result of contracting
polio as a child.

"Still another fact", writes Frederic Hoffet,5 "shows that Catholicism
is not so foreign to National Socialism as one would wish it to
be. Hitler, Goebbels and Himmler, as well as most of the party's
'old guard', were Catholics....
"This relationship between National Socialism and Catholicism
is particularly striking if one studies more closely the party's methods
of propaganda and internal organization. Nothing is more instructive
in this connexion than the works of Joseph Goebbels. It is known
that the latter was brought up in a Jesuit College. . . . Every page,
every line of his writings recalls the teaching of his masters. There
is the stress placed on obedience, which was to be the principal
virtue of National Socialism . . . the disdain of truth. . . . 'Some lies
are as necessary as bread!' he proclaimed by virtue of a moral
relativism, taken from the writings of Ignatius de Loyola...."
Indeed, it was by assiduously applying this Jesuistic principle that
the chief of Nazi propaganda was to acquire throughout the world—
including Germany—the reputation of one of the greatest liars of
And Frederic Hoffet6 continues:
"There was, in particular, the National Socialist system of educating
and training its leaders, with which Goebbels had endowed the
regime. This system applied the methods of the Jesuits almost
servilely. The young recruits were grouped in schools situated well
out of town, where they had to spend several years, isolated from
the rest of the world. There, in an atmosphere of austerity, they
were submitted to a training which was in no way less severe than
that of the monasteries of the Company of Jesus. After a noviciate,
which ended in numerous and difficult tests, the future leaders had
to swear obedience: 'Perinde ac cadaver'.. . ."

"There can be no doubt about the blessings which Christianity has brought": The Archbishop is not alone in using this phrase. It has been repeated and repeated over the Centuries, and the fact is that it is entirely untrue! There is a technique called "The Big Lie", and it simply means to say that if one repeats a lie often enough and forcefully enough people begin to accept it without question. Now it is presently common usage to impute this technique to Dr. Josef Goebbels, Nazi Germany's Minister of Propaganda, and it is quite true that he used both the expression and the technique. But, Joseph Goebbels was trained by the Jesuits, and the technique was Christianity's. It worked (temporarily) for the Nazis, and it has worked for over a millennium for the Christians.
Goebbels and ‘Pille’ Kölsch were inseparable. They arranged for Jesuits like Father
Rembold to lecture to the students, and once Goebbels proudly invited his old scripture
teacher, Father Mollen, to lecture too. At Bonn he studied under Adolf Dyroff,
professor of philosophy. He attended the literary seminars of Professor Berthold
Lietzmann, and wrote well-regarded essays for Professor Carl Enders on the youthful
drama fragments of Johann Wolfgang Goethe. He stayed on in Bonn after term
ended on February 1, and moved into Kölsch’s lodgings in Wessel Strasse. The April
1918 issue of the Unitas journal reported that the two friends had decided to study
next in Berlin.

When Hitler became Chancellor, who was his Deputy Chancellor? Baron Konstantin von Neurath, a Roman Catholic, was Hitler's first Foreign Minister."
Flip over one page to page 11 and you will read:
"Who was the Nazi chief propagandist? The No. I liar of the Nazi Party, the Nazi Minister of Propaganda, head over press, radio, theatre, etc., was Dr. P. J. Goebbels, also a Roman Catholic. Konstantin, Duke of Bavaria, a Roman Catholic, said in his book, The Pope, page 77 that Goebbels 'received a Jesuit education, attended an academy in Catholic Rhineland, and received the scholarship for his training from a Catholic institution."
Sinclair goes on to say:
"Goebbels was trained by the world's most brazen liars."
We quote again from page 15 of the same source:
"Was Bormann a Roman Catholic? The play, THE VICAR, by Rolf Huchhuth, is not fiction; it is as accurate historically as any history book. In the U.S. edition of the play, Huchhuth gives 66 pages of documentation. It has long been known that Goebbels studied for the priesthood. The Austrian Fascist, Dollfuss, also studied for the priesthood. But Rolf Huchhuth says, "Hitler, Goebbels, Bormann, Kaltenbrunner, Hoess...studied for the priesthood."
