Feminist Agenda at Vatican II

By David Martin

In 1982, Cardinal Carlo Caffara, founding President of the John Paul II Institute forMarriage and the Family was told by Sr.Lucy of Fatima that “the final battle between the Lord and the reign of Satan will be about marriage and the family.”

Sr. Lucy’s prophecy is unfolding in our time, evidenced by the fact that Rome has actively abetted environmentalists in their quest to make “Mother Earth” a safer place through population control. It is no secret that since 2013, the Vatican has repeatedly invited abortion advocates like Jeffrey Sachs, Ban Ki moon, and Paul Ehrlich to speak to the Church about their vision of a safer and better world through abortion and contraception.

Hence, defense of life is a top priority among the true defenders of the Faith who have come forward today to expose this collusion with anti-life. Taking a stand against abortion is certainly one of the key ways of defending the Faith in these turbulent times

Defending Life Means Denouncing Feminism

But defending life also means denouncing feminism, which reared its head at Vatican II, because feminism is the foundation of abortion. There is an urgent need to reiterate the Church's continuous teaching that the man is the head of the household. “Because he is the image and glory of God; but the woman is the glory of the man. For the man is not of the woman, but the woman of the man. For the man was not created for the woman, but the woman for the man.” (1 Cor. 11: 7-9)

A woman's vocation as wife is to submit to her husband, not to compete with him as an equal. Adherence to this rule is what will effectively offset the ensuing culture of death that feminism has brought with it, whereas the tumor of abortion will never cease as long as the cancer of feminism is cultured in the Church.

Unfortunately, Vatican II helped to spawn today’s culture of death, because the seeds of feminism were planted in the conciliar documents. In Gaudium et Spes, it states for instance:

“Women claim parity with men in fact as well as in rights, where they have not already obtained it.” [9] “It is regrettable that those basic personal rights are not yet being respected everywhere, as in the case with women who are denied the chance to freely choose.” [29]

What is reflected here is the basic protest or "dogma" of the feminist, not the dogma of Faith. In God's eyes women do not stand at “parity” with men, nor must they assert themselves as men, whether in the home, in society, or in the Church. St. Paul says, “I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to use authority over the man: but to be in silence.”(1 Timothy 2:12) The woman is the husband's helpmate, not his equal. And whereas she is to be treated with love and respect, she is not to compete with her husband, because God first created the man to his own image (Genesis 2:7), and then he formed the woman from the man, and for the man. (Genesis 2: 21-25)

The majority of divorces and broken homes today are due to the fact that women generally no longer submit their husbands. St. Paul teaches that in the same way the church must be subject to Christ, so wives must be subject to their husbands. “Let women be subject to their husbands, as to the Lord: Because the husband is the head of the wife, as Christ is the head of the church. He is the Savior of his body.” (Ephesians 5: 22,23)

In the Vatican II statements on marriage, there is absolutely nothing stated along these lines. The documents make no mention of this essential teaching, but rather lay the groundwork for feminism. The Vatican II Council denounces “underrating women's legitimate social advancement” (GS, article 52), and cites it the duty of all to “ensure the recognition and implementation everywhere of the right of every person to human and 
civil culture in harmony with the dignity of the human person, without distinction of race, sex, nation, religion, or social circumstances.” (GS-60)

The Vatican II Decree on the Apostolate of Lay People, Apostolicam Actuositatem, states: “Since in our days women are taking an increasingly active share in the whole life of society, it is very important that their participation in the various sectors of the Church's apostolate should likewise develop.” (AA-9) Here the Council advocates that the Church should follow the world’s advice concerning the role of women, yet in his encyclical “Quadragesima Anno,” Pope Pius XI condemned women's participation in ministry as “a grave disorder to eliminate at all cost” since it “takes mothers of families” away from their duties at home. (AA S 23)

Consistent with this is the fact that a great many cardinals at Vatican II spoke up in favor of artificial contraception—a treasonous act that triggered backlash from Pope Paul VI—and it was this conciliar fight over contraception that eventually led to the issuance of Humanae Vitae on July 25, 1968.

What the Vatican II feminist agenda has produced is a spirit of rebellion. The Church was called to be the Spouse of Christ without blemish, but at the Council she became unruly and threw off her wedding veil and began flirting with the world. Consequently, a spirit of infidelity has set in, evidenced even by the way women no longer cover their heads in Church. The eternal mandates for women set forth in 1 Corinthians 11 to wear head coverings during prayer are no longer observed, and are even rejected by many priests and nuns, some of whom are now involved with abortion. It's all part of the false religious liberty that was a central theme of the Second Vatican Council—a discordant theme that didn't harmonize with God's plan for life.

When God's plan for the sanctification of women is again promoted from the pulpit, abortion will decrease and the bountiful fruits of life will again be evident as before the Council. God's plan in no way deprives women of their privilege to advance on the path of true success and liberty, but it must be done on God’s terms. What the Lord has endowed women with is the right to do what is right, that they might be liberated from wrong. St. Paul says, “She shall be saved through child bearing; if she continue in faith, and love, and sanctification, with sobriety.” (1 Timothy 2:15)

It is God above all who seeks the honor and sanctification of women, and what He requires is that women submit to their husbands and remember their place in the home with their children. 

No Women on the Altar  

Accordingly, they must remain off the altars of God and be silent in the Church, remembering the words of Holy Scripture: “Let women keep silence in the churches: for it is not permitted them to speak, but to be subject.” (1 Corinthians 14: 34)

This is not to imply that women should be recessive in proclaiming the truth in our discordant world. On the contrary, we need fighters from the ranks of women who will stand up against these Femi-Nazis and break their horns before the public. God's will for women is their sanctification, and we need more Joan of Arcs who will come forward and thunder against sin by proclaiming family values without respect to persons. The Lord wants women to be strong, not weak, but they can never be strong as long as they embrace the weakness of pride.

NOW is the time to declare that the women's rights movement that began fifty years ago has ruined it for women, their children, and society. Women today are discouraged about their identity where they feel they must be ashamed of their gender, and this poor example
of mothers is what has turned many a young man against women where they now seek illicit relations with the same sex. The pedophilia scandal among the clergy is the sorrowful end of this curse (homosexuality), so if women truly want to be “actively involved” with the good of the Church, they must embrace family values in the home and look to the husband as the head of the household.

For their encouragement, let them look to the example of the Blessed Virgin, who was never once seen on a soapbox preaching in public. She left this to the men, and her humility is what gave her the power to crush the head of Satan.

True Liberation

By following the example of Our Lady, women too can share in this power over Satan and be liberated from this fear that compels them to impress men with their “equality.” When faith and love reign in the heart there is no need to impress anyone, since we live for God, being dead to the world.

What today’s sophisticated woman needs is liberation from silliness, and a true pastor of the Faith will always encourage her to accept this challenge. Let them ponder the words of St. Paul who taught the way of true liberty:

“If you be risen with Christ, seek the things that are above; where Christ is sitting at the right hand of God: Mind the things that are above, not the things that are upon the earth. For you are dead; and your life is hid with Christ in God.... Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, lust, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is the service of idols. For which things the wrath of God cometh upon the children of unbelief.” (Col. 3:1-6)

Beautiful. Unfortunately, this completely Catholic thought is gone from most of mankind, maybe never to return, probably not in our lifetime.

Thank you for this beautiful thoughts.They are path, truth and life.In today world, they may seen as something crazy, discriminating, even evil, but this world canonize such monsters like Margaret Sanger or Judith Butler as "saints" , so we can expect that.Let our Lady, our Blessed Mother be The Women to look at.

"...the final battle between the Lord and the reign of Satan will be about marriage and the family." I don't think that the real Sr. Lucy said that, and this "prophecy" is just too convenient. As well, why did "Sr. Lucy" wait until 1982 to bring this up? And there are more irons in the fire regarding the world and the Church than this one. Pope?/Antipope! Francis and the destructive Vatican II ought to count for some mention.

Surprised you don't mention that Vatican may have been in hands of/collaborating w/ communists, masons and U.N. from time J23 took office (i.e. promoting population control, destruction of family, and anti-Christ). Paul VI spoke at the U.N.,inverted the purposes of marriage, and also promoted JPI who got Italy to allow single parent (sodomite) adoption. Also while H.V. said that artificial contraception was wrong, priests in the confessional told those who confessed it that it wasn't a sin if they didn't believe it was a sin (I know those people--they are in my family across 3 generations and first instance was at Lourdes in 1968).

You also don't mention that while publicly claiming abortion is wrong, from Sarge Shriver being the #2 on the McGovern ticket (the first pro-abortion ticket ever) in 1972 (no wonder legalized Jan 1973), the Catholic Church has done nothing to enforce that either--in fact has been overturning anti-abortion laws in every country in the world (latest Ireland). In fact, today, the biggest proponents of legalized abortion (and sodomite marriage)--Nancy Pelosi, Joe Biden, Dick Durbin, Xavier Becerra, Andy Cuomo, De Blasio, O'Malley, ad nauseam--are all Catholic. Biggest proponents of religious liberty (I am personally opposed, but believe people should be able to make a choice/it's a religious issue) are Catholic and Protestant.[Rabbinic Jewry states their religion approves abortion so it's religious discrimination against them to prohibit.]

Biggest joke to me was that so many anti-abortion Catholics were rooked into using their networks to picket for religious liberty by their sodomite bishops w/out even realizing that the two ideas are mutually opposed and that if the bishops are for religious liberty then the bishops and the VC2 Church is pro-choice. They themselves are pro-choice by virtue of the church they belong to yet they picket those who put their faith into action.


Most women today, even if they read the Bible, are instructed in its interpretation by their pastors (protestant and Catholic) who claim that the teachings on modesty and family/society relations are no longer pertinent to our time and were not taught by Jesus but held and taught by the apostles due to the society/culture of their time. This has laid the foundation for changing teaching on sodomy as well.


It would be nice to believe women are going to start obeying the Gospel w/out it being preached to them, but St. Paul contradicts you: "And how shall they hear, without a preacher?"

Also, Joshua said: "As for me and my house, we will serve God." How many men are going along w/and supporting feminist wives, mothers, children, sisters, and friends? Eve's sin was imputed to Adam. How many men (like you) are sitting in VC2 (protestant against God/anti-Christ) churches that are leading not only your houses but you yourself to hell?

P.S. You don't mention what VC2 said about Mary--seems promotion of feminism and demotion of BVM would go hand in hand.

kam et al-It is crystal clear that the cultures of every European nation will soon, probably by about the year 2100, exist only in history books that the totalitarians have not been able to burn - because the people of Europe quit making children with God on replacement scale some years ago. Noe well: the tiny little mustard seed of true Christendom is there right now, and it will again germinate and blossom, if the end of the world does not come first. No matter which pagans take over in the near future

It is eerily similar with the homoarchy, and with the women controlling chanceries and parishes and dioceses and seminary admissions - here and around the world, the pro-death pro-genocide pro-abort women who call themselve catholic who demand "equality with God" in persona Christi, in all things sacramental, these women - and the homoarch clergy enjoying themselves and our money, are not replacing themselves. These women and the homoarch clergy are responsible for the mass exodus from the catholic churches. There are no new young heretics who beleive what they beleive and who have put into practice thier heresies within the earthly, materialistic world of the church. The young peopel, most of them, have just left as soon as they are confirmed, or sooner.

So, those of us who beleive what the church has believed and taught for centuries will procreate with God Almighty and raise up children and grandchildren who know and live the truth. Only male priests, mom/dad families with multiple springoffs, eternal hell, the voice of well-formed Conscience oen voice for all, etc. God's good earth will again see a worldwide Christendom. Not if, but when.

Dress is cultural to VC2: remember Saint John Paul II directing the Africans to return to their loin cloths to worship God?



It is no accident pervert Cardinal Schoenborn, who interprets Amoris Laetitia for Francis, has topless events in cathedral:

Or exhibits artwork showing last supper as sodomite orgy


Or Francis every Feast of the Baptism of Our Lord encourages women to breastfeed during "mass:"



Or that bloody Queen of Sodomy and Baby Murder Nancy Pelosi presides over St. Francis (San Francisco) where public nudity, sex acts, and defecation are encouraged.





'This is what the gay agenda is all about





Or that Cardinal Dolan is parading w/sodomites in the "St. Patrick's Day" parade.


What's so odd is that so many self-called 'faithful Catholics' seem more attached to buildings and their own glory, praise and honor than to God (the Truth).
