    The Road to Martyrdom – Father Feeney
    The Point was a Catholic newsletter published by the Saint Benedict Center from 1952 to 1959. It was edited under Fr. Leonard Feeney, M.I.C.M. Most issues tackle the problems confronting Catholicism in the modern world by Americanism, Communism, Ecumenism, Freemasonry, Judaism, Protestantism, and Zionism.

    Regarding Fr. Leonard Feeney -

    "One of the most outstanding prophets of our time."                          
           — Hamish Fraser


    "The greatest theologian we have in the United States, by far."— Rev. John J. McEleny, S.J., (Father's Jesuit                                                                                                                                                                              Provincial)


    "The greatest theologian in the Catholic Church today."
                        — John Cardinal Wright
    Pope John XXIII assigned Monsignor Francis Cassano (deceased) to review and examine Bread of Life by Father Leonard Feeney.  He was to find any errors - nay, heresy.  He reported  back that there was nothing "contrary to faith" in Bread of Life. Msgr. Cassano eventually had a parish on the Hudson River and attested his conclusion to many people, including the Center itself.  (This Monsignor was not a "nobody" - he had also been assigned by Rome to investigate the case of the mystic stigmatist, Mother Aiello.)  We hear lots of calumnies from Rome (and others) about Fr. Feeney.  But somehow we never here about this clearance from such a Vatican insider.
    Members of the famous Kennedy family were known to visit (the Center). Jack  (JFK) was running for Congress when he first came, and surprised Father by being able to recite from memory passages of one of his essays. Jack Kennedy came to several lectures and was always gracious and respectful towards Father, who once told him, “Maybe someday you will be the first Catholic president!”
    Bobby Kennedy came once as well. However, he was arrogant and confrontational. Father suffered him patiently, until he flippantly sniped, “I know more Protestants who are going to heaven than Catholics!” “That’s not the way to talk to a priest,” Father retorted, and directed the young Kennedy to the door.
    After this, according to Sen. Ted Kennedy in his autobiography, Bobby went to their father, Joseph P. Kennedy, and at the Cape house (the "Kennedy Compound"), told him what had happened.  Joe was not sure that Bobby had heard things correctly:
    “But,” he said, “if you feel strongly that you did, I’m going to go into the other room and call Richard. Maybe he’ll want you to go up to Boston and see him.”
    So Joe calls "Richard" - who was none other than Richard Cardinal Cushing.  And thus began the local persecution of the Center, which previously the Cardinal had hailed for its thorough-going Catholicism.  And we know, this persecution went world-wide.  As Rousseau of the French Revolution put it, "But whoever dares to say: 'Outside the Church is no salvation,' ought to be driven from the State." And this the Masonic media, descendants of Rousseau, attempted to do to Fr. Feeney.  He was speaking in priestly mercy and charity, had a number of high-profile converts (including the grandson of J.P. Morgan), and also counted a number of Jews (NY City taxi drivers among them) as those he brought to the feet of Our Lady and her Divine Son.  He was doing his duty as a Roman Catholic priest.  But by the late 1940's/early '50's, there were none to stand with him.  With preparations for ecumenism already afoot and about to burst upon the scene with Vatican II, his was a most inconvenient voice.  And it had to be stilled.

    If any one saith that true and natural water is not of necessity for baptism, and on that account wrests to some sort of metaphor those words of Our Lord Jesus Christ, "Unless a man be born again of water and the Holy Ghost...,"  Let Him Be Anathama.  -COUNCIL OF TRENT Sess VII Canon II “On Baptism"
