The prophetic voice of Fr Malachi Martin

Malachi Martin (1921 – 1999) was an Irish Catholic priest and writer on the Catholic Church. Originally ordained as a Jesuit priest, he became Professor of Palaeography at the Vatican’s Pontifical Biblical Institute. From 1958 he served as secretary to Cardinal Bea during preparations for the Second Vatican Council. Disillusioned by reforms, he asked to be released from certain of his Jesuit vows in 1964 and moved to New York City. His 17 novels and non-fiction books were frequently critical of the Catholic Church, which he believed had failed to act on the third prophecy revealed by the Virgin Mary at Fátima. His work often dealt with satanism, demonic possession, and exorcism, liberation theology, the Second Vatican Council, the Tridentine liturgy, Catholic dogma, modernism, the financial history of the Church, the New World Order and the geopolitical importance of the Pope. Martin continued to offer Mass privately each day in the Tridentine Mass form, and vigorously exercised his priestly ministry all the way up until his death. He was strongly supported by some traditional Catholic sources and severely criticized by highly liberal sources. He was a periodic guest on Art Bell’s radio program, Coast to Coast AM, between 1995 and 1998. In the final years before his death, Martin was received in a private audience by Pope John Paul II. Afterwards, he started working on a book with the working title Primacy: How the Institutional Roman Catholic Church became a Creature of the New World Order.

The audio is from an interview conducted in the 1990s with Father Malachi Martin. It is well worth listening to this Priest’s words from yesterday in the context of the state of our Church today.

  1. This is certainly an arresting conversation. Unfortunately, even though attempts were made to improve the audio quality as much as possible, what Father Martin is saying is at times incomprehensible. A written transcript would have been helpful.

    It is not only arresting, but powerful what Malachi Martin says. He states doctrine we took for granted in ’50, ’60’s, … that we no longer hear or can take for granted from the Catholic Church. His use of words like NGO in the late ’90s, or New World Order goals are prophetic, indeed. His books are online and can be downloaded for free. I have not read his book The Jesuits, but he was seeing and hearing things around Vatican II that is not talked about; it’s no wonder things are as bad as they are among priests, bishops. the Vatican. He gives good commentary and vision about abortion, contraception, starvation, etc He does give us hope that God will take care of us in this dismal looking future. And that the Catholic Church is necessary for the salvation of our souls. Period!!!
