His excellency Archbishop Sigaud was one of the founders, along with Archbishop Marcel Lefebre, of the International Group of Fathers which was organized as an opposition group to counter the strong liberal and revolutionary elements that were plotted to hijack the Second Vatican Council for their own subversive purposes. Together, these faithful and courageous prelates of the Coetus issued their formous condemnation of Communism, supported by 450 other Fathers. What follows is a short excerpt from the letter by Archbishop Proenca Siquad, Bishop of Brazil. This letter is available in full from the Catholic Action Resource Center:

"Communism  is  another  enemy  of  the  Catholic
Church. The Masonic  sect  gathers  together  the
bourgeois;  the  communists  gather  together the
proletariat. The aim of each group  is  identical
--  a  socialist  society, rationalistic, without
God and without Christ. The  two  movements  have
one common head: international Jewry.

1.  We condemn all persecutions of Jews for their
religion or for ethnic  reasons.  The  Church  is
against 'antisemitism.'

2.  But the Church cannot ignore the facts of the
past and the clear affirmations of  international
WORLDWIDE  JEWISH  EMPIRE.  This  is what Masonic
sects and the communists stand for. Money, media,
and  international politics are fore a large part
in the hands of the Jews. Although the  Jews  are
the   biggest  capitalists  and  should  on  that
account  be  the  greatest  adversaries  of   the
Russians  communists,  they  do not fear them. On
the contrary, they  help  them.  Those  who  have
revealed  the atomic secrets of the USA were Jews
(Fuchs, Golds,  Gringlass,  and  Rosenberg).  The
founders  of  Communism  were  Jews. They are the
promoters, organizers, and bankers.

This is the reality. Should this  foster  hatred?
No!  But  with  viligence  and  clarity we should
launch a systematic and methodical  onslaught  of
'the  enemy  of  man,'  whose  secret  weapon  is
hypocracy, 'the leaven of the Pharisees.'    

  Catholic Bishop Gerald de Proenca Sigaud
  of Brazil, 1959

Domenico Cardinal Tardini wrote to the Bishops of the world, in preperation for Vatican II, asking for their input on the main concerns they would submit to the forthcoming assembly. Siguad, the Archbiship of Brazil, replied with a remmarkable letter, a small part of which is quoted above. It was an extraordinary letter, says Hugh Atkins, in that it clearly reflected the Magesterium of the Catholic Church and its counter-revolutionary and counter-conspiracy spirit of holy militancy. Bishop Gerald de Proenca Siguad was what had come to be known as an "integralist", which is to say, according to the Webster Unabridgred Dictionary, one who holds "the belief that one's relgious convictions should dictate one's political and social actions." Thus, the term was a neologism used by liberal revolutionaries in the Church to identify traditional Catholics who, contrary to the Protestant and Judeo-Masonic American ideal, refused to countanance the separation of Church and State, but insisted, in keeping with Catholic tradition, on the social Kingship of Christ. Towards the end of the 19th century, a small band of "integralists", one of whom was the French abbot, Msgr. Henri Delassus, persuaded Pope Leo XIII to engage the issue of "Americanism", which he did, sending a Letter, addressed first to the nominal head of the American hierarchy, Cardinal James Gibbons, Archbishop of Baltimore, and next to all other Bishops. Known by its first two words, Testem benevolentiae, it was issued in the year 1899. Fr. Delassus had become a famous foe of modernism in all its varied aspects. This reputation earned him advancements and honors, granted by the Popes of his time, including Saint Pius X. This should dispell any notion that the integralist position is unorthodox or somehow un-Catholic. The Papal approval of Delassus and the integralist party he represented is problematical, however, because it stands in stark contrast to the current claimant to the Papacy, Cardinal Ratzinger. In his book, "The Principles of Catholic Theology", Ratzinger says that the "integralists" cannot be too firmly resisted, and the teachigns of Vatican II are a sort of counter-Syllabus: "Was the Council a wrong road that we must now retrace if we are to save the Church? The voices of those who say that it as are becoming louder and their followers more numerous. Among the more obvious phenomena of the last years must be counted the increasing number of integralist groups in which the desire for piety, for the sense of mystery, is finding satisfaction. We must be on our guard against minimizing these movements. Without a doubt, they represent a sectarian zealotry that is the antithesis of Catholicity. We cannot resist them too firmly." (Cardinal Ratzinger, pp. 389-400, Principles of Catholic Theology) Again, writing on Vatican II, Ratzinger: "Let us be content here that the text serves as a countersyllabus and, as such, represents, on the part of the Church, an attempt at reconciliation with the new era inaugurated in 1789." (Ratzinger, page 382, Principles of Catholic Theology) Question is, was Vatican II an effort to come to terms with the ideals of the French Revolution, or was it, rather, a compromise with the world, one which allowed the "smoke of Satan" to enter into the Church, as some say. In any case, whatever the solution to this enigma and seeming imbroglio, what we can say, with sure affirmation, is that Seqaud, Delassey, and other integralists of distinction are perfectly in line with the thinking of the Magesterium and are thus rightly identified as traditional Catholics, and the term 'integralist' is Owellian newspeak which conceals more than it reveals -- a euphemism used by liberals in the church to avoid acknowledgment of the fact that Vatican II diverged dramatically from the traditional teachings of the Magesterium and set a new course. The question is, at least to those who are not of the tradtional Catholic faith, is the traditoinal Catholic faith tenable given that it has now been repudiated by the Vatican II 'Church'? Evidently, as evidenced by the precipitous post-Vatican II drop in Catholic vocations, many have concluded that it is not, while those who adhere to the old school of Catholic thought have seperated in many ways from Vatican II rulership, some going so far as to hold that all Vatican II claimants to the Papacy are Anti-Popes. Evidently, these people do not buy the claim that Vatican II can somehow be recociled logically with the Magesterium. The logical contradictions of Vatican II teachings may be euphemistically and disengenuously called a 'counter-Syllabus', but fact is, truth cannot contradict truth, and Vatican II is not counter- Syllabus but counter-Magesterium, in which case, either the Magesterium is right, in which Vat-II is wrong, or Vat-II is right, in which case the traditional teachings of the Catholic Church were wrong. If the Magesterium was in error, then it is not what it claims to be, in which case, as most people seem to conclude, neither Vatican II, nor the Magesterium can be relied upon, and, in a word, the Catholic religion is bunk. Simplistic? Yes, but so is a fork in the road, where one road leads home, the other to to destruction. "By their fruits ye shall know them."
In all places where emphasis is added, either by use of italics, bold lettering, or all caps, this was not found in the original but was done by the editor, Hugh Atkins. Any yellow highlight is mine.

"When the State refuses to give God what belongs to God, by a necessary consequence, it refuses to give to its citizens that to which they, as men, have a right. For whether one likes it or not, the true rights of man spring precisely from his duties towards God. -- Pope Leo XIII
"Journalism is a false picture of the world, thrown upon a lighted screen in a dark room so that the real world is not seen and the unreal word is seen.... We live under secret government, conducted by a secret process called Publicity." (G.K. Chesterton, G.K.'s Weekly, December 3, 1932, as quoted from Rev. Fahey's The Mystical Body of Christ in the Modern World, p. xiii)
