“Step by step, I retreated from God and went forth to meet the world, the flesh, and the devil. . . . I’d join the devil himself. . . . There is no doubt that I traveled with him at my side and that he extorted a great price for his company.”
This is how Bella Dodd (1904–69) described her long battle with atheistic communism, an ideology her Church calls a “satanic scourge.” She later described it as a “school of darkness,” a school of “hate,” a school for which she was a master organizer and infiltrator of every organization—public, private, and even ecclesiastical.
Bella Dodd courageously left the Communist Party and its diabolical machinations. Her former communist affiliates then smeared her with epithets eerily familiar to modern ears, dubbing her everything from a “fascist” to a “racist.” Some things never change.
One thing that changed, however, was Bella Dodd. The man who helped pull her from the pit? A priest. A priest by the name of Fulton Sheen. Bella Dodd’s story thereafter changed dramatically from one of seduction by the devil to redemption through Christ. She dedicated the remainder of her life to a special penance: warning the world of the evil of communism and its plans.
In the battle between the devil and Bella Dodd, Bella and her Church won. At long last, here is her inspiring story.

The devil and Bella Dodd
How great thou art. Paul Kengor and Mary Nicholas have produced truth in words. What more can I ask? May the Good Lord Jesus bless this work.
It makes perfect sense why communists would have wanted to and did infiltrate into Catholic Church holy priesthood. If the Catholic Church hadnt been founded by the Lord Jesus itself upon the rock of Peter, it would have been long destroyed. I think you would have to have blinders on not to see the ideology and wicked doctrine not a few infiltrators it seems at all levels in the Church (yes even and especially at Vatican) are continuing to try and destroy the Catholic Church by watering down the teaching or even trying twisting it to their whacked persuasion. We need much prayer and sacrifice !
A Biorgraphy Long Overdue
Professor Kengor;s book is a sobering complement to Bella Dodd;s autobiography, "School of Darkness". Both shoud be required reading for every public school student prior to graduation. Unfortunately, within the current political climate of the United States, neither book ever would be.
