Pope Francis has recently made a heartfelt plea for urgent humanitarian aid to reach the struggling Palestinians in Gaza. He has called on both Israel and Hamas to accept proposals for a cease-fire and the release of hostages. The Pope expressed gratitude to Jordan for hosting an international conference focused on providing aid for Palestinians and urged the international community to act swiftly to assist the people of Gaza. In addition, he highlighted the importance of peace and the courage required to achieve it, as demonstrated during a peace prayer event he hosted a decade ago.


However, it is crucial to reflect upon the dark shadows of history that tarnish the Catholic Church's reputation when it comes to advocating for peace. During World War II, when the world was ravaged by Hitler's atrocities, the Pope only offered superficial support for peace. In fact, the Vatican and Catholic Church had once maintained disturbingly cordial relations with Hitler. They even sent him birthday cards and held meetings where he outlined his mission to expand church interests, which tragically played an essential role in the genocide of Jews.


It is a historical fact that the Catholic Church enabled Hitler's rise to power and actively supported his anti-Semitic agenda until the point where their own interests began to be negatively impacted in other countries. Prior to this turning point, many Catholics and priests closely associated with Hitler, collaborating to expose and persecute Jews.


This glaring contradiction highlights the hypocrisy of the Catholic Church's recent call for humanitarian aid to Gaza. While Pope Francis advocating for peace and aid to those suffering is admirable, it is important to recognize the Church's complicity with the Nazis during WWII. By acknowledging this historical truth, it becomes evident that the Church's current stance on humanitarian efforts is marred by the shadows of a questionable past they have yet to be punished for despite a request made to the United Nations to open up an official investigation into the megachurch's past and present human rights violations.
