The Catholic Church has always been in a state of crisis, from the early Christian martyrdoms and persecutions, to the Great Schism, to the Protestant, and then the Enlightenment.
However, during the 19th century, new wicked threats began to emerge. Various societies which are governed by modernist and Marxist ideologies, began developing a plan to attack the Catholic Church from within. Their goal was quite simple: to change the Church’s doctrine, liturgy, and mission to suit their own diabolical purposes.
Infiltration by Dr. Taylor Marshall, is a gripping and well-researched book that draws back the curtain on the heinous plans of these groups, showing how they have effectively infiltrated many different areas of the Church’s hierarchy, from the priesthood all the way up to cardinal-electors.
Arm yourself with this book. It will open your eyes to the treacherous landscape that the Church currently finds herself in.
"Riveting. What an incredible work of brilliance and generosity. Many scholars give in to the temptation to showcase brilliance by leaving concepts obscure. Marshall has synthesized historical and philosophical thought simply and succinctly making it accessible to all. What a treasure for the faithful. My highlighter ran dry after only half-way through."-- John-Henry Westin, Editor-in-Chief, LifeSiteNews.com
We must examine the very roots of the crisis, which, to a decisive extent, can be identified as Taylor Marshall has done in this book as an infiltration of the Church by an unbelieving world. -- Bishop Athanasius Schneider

Out of all the periods in Church history, the century that seems to be least understood and most shrouded in mystery is oddly enough the 20th century. Reading a history of the Church in the 20th century has always felt incomplete, like the pieces weren't all coming together. It was a century of unimaginable change in the Church, yet no history can fully explain what led up to these earth shattering changes. How did the Church so completely reject so much of its tradition and doctrine? Historians have a rather clear picture of the Church in the 13th century during the tumultuous Pontificate of Boniface VIII and the Church in the 4th century as it combated the Arian heresy. Some details of the Church's doing is these centuries might have been lost but we understand the general zeitgeist of the period. Why then is it that the century closest to our time is so poorly understood? What pieces are missing? Dr. Marshall's book excellently fills in the gaps to help us understand just what happened during this important time.
While the book begins with an overview of communist and free-masonic ideas and agendas it quickly moves into examining the history of prominent cardinals as well as every pontiff from Leo XIII to Francis. In this way it prevents itself from reading like a tinfoil hat conspiracy theory and instead moves from prelate to prelate citing personal biographies and communications to show that each one became more and more open to secular and modernist ideas all the way up until our current time. In this way Dr. Marshall is able to track these ideas and see where they infiltrated the Church and who propagated them. There is no doubt that modernism, socialism and secularism have entered the Church. You don't need Dr. Marshall's to tell you that, simply go to mass at the nearest Church, watch the liturgy and listen to the homily. What this book does is pinpoint how these ideas entered the Church and helps us understand how things came to be how they are.
Thank you Dr. Marshall for giving us the real truth about what has happened to Our Precious Church!
Dr. Taylor Marshall has put together a fantastic piece of work here that every Catholic should read. It clearly lays out the history of Modernism in the church and how it got us to be where we are at today. I highly recommend.
This book has been sold out for good reason. Regardless if you like all of Marshall's YouTube videos, this book is well done. It ended up strengthening my faith: yet more supporting evidence that this is the True Church-- look how the evil one has tried to systematically bring it down. That's just what one might expect. So go out and pray the rosary and live the faith! This book is reaching unexpected audiences, by the way. My devout, 80 year old, Novus Ordo-only neighbor read it and liked it. I have no idea how she even heard of it.
This political history is a fitting beginning to something new in Church politics. While less of a grand narrative than happenstance might suppose, this book compiles critical information giving dates, faces, and names, penetrating the obscurities that shadow Church Militant attempting to overtake her with violence, heresy, conspiracy, scandal, and the endless chaos of evil which make amuck and merit our resistance. Dr. Marshall supplements his thesis of origins of contemporary crises of authority with careful weighing of private revelations and prophecies, most importantly of our Lady, mother Mary. He names the threads of error in the Last Days of the Papal States, fits to size the Nouvelle Theologie and related crudities, and places the V2 characters on stage contrasting this new seamless garment with the polity of Freemasonry, as it informs our immediate activity in the Church, whether it's disputations over the Papacy or the sanctity of the liturgy, or the false prophets of V2 Council, forging their fraudulent ways with false peace. This book is weighty, but also moderate, and is definitely very informative and edifying. Much love to Dr. Marshall and family.
