Eighteen Trappist monks who were murdered out of hatred for the faith in 1936 were beatified as martyrs in Santander, Spain, on October 3.

Cardinal Angelo Amato, the prefect of the Congregation for the Causes of Saints, presided at the Mass of beatification.

“Pio Heredia and 17 comrades of the Cistercian Order of the Strict Observance and San Bernardo [were] killed for their faith during the Spanish Civil War and religious persecutions of the 1930s,” Pope Francis said following his October 4 Angelus address. “We praise the Lord for their brave witness and their intercession, and we call on Him to free the world from the scourge of war.”

You realize that this would not be if the Pope were a true marxist.
Whilst I'm not saying he is a marxist, it would make no difference, since marxists believe it is moral to lie to further their ends. And, had the world been free from the scourge of war in 1936, there would have been a lot more dead priests, brothers and nuns in Spain,  because the communists would have solidified their control.
