The persistent complaint that Pope Pius XII was sympathetic toward Hitler’s Nazi regime has been thoroughly undermined by historians, but the “black legend” persists. Writing in the Jesuit journal <i>Civilta Cattolica</i>, Father Giovanni Sale traces that legend back to Soviet publicists, who were eager to undermine papal authority and to distract attention from the Kremlin’s own earlier alliance with Hitler.

A few thoughts on the “de-baptism” fad, beginning with: there’s no such thing as “de-baptism”:
