“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. Bella was pulled from the pit by a priest named Fulton Sheen. Thereafter her story changed dramatically from one of seduction by the devil 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. Hardcover.
