Anti-religion Lenin's last words

Vladimir Lenin, a political leader who taught a form of communism and was the first head of the Soviet Union, came to power in an effort to force everyone into the same social class. Many believe communism can be beneficial to society, but in practice it never works, and there are many reasons why it cannot work. In fact, the Catholic Church is officially against communism. One of Lenin's goals was to eliminate religion from his country. This destroys the concept of freedom and goes against principles of humanity. Ultimately, Leninism failed, and millions of people lost their lives fighting wars to implement it. Lenin was very sad on his deathbed because of all the suffering and loss he brought to his country. He said he felt as though he was lying in a giant pool of blood, the blood of his fellow countrymen.

In his last words, Lenin, who was against religion in general, set his sights to one of Christianity's greatest heroes - St. Francis of Assisi. Lenin knew that his ideology had lost, and that Russia had lost, and contemplated what would be required to restore Russia, when he said these words:

"I have deluded myself. Without doubt, it was necessary to free the oppressed masses. However, our methods resulted in other oppressions and gruesome massacres. You know I am deathly ill; I feel lost in an ocean of blood formed by countless victims. This was necessary to save our Russia, but it is too late to turn back. We would need ten Francis of Assisi."

This shows the amazing character of St. Francis, which is attested to by Lenin.


  1. that quote from Lenin is very telling indeed. Do you have a reference for it? I would be grateful.

  2. I'm not a Christian [formerly i was a Catholic] but saying bullsht of St. Francis of Assisi is something inexcusable. I mean, we should commend the man. I really admire the guy. Take that from an agnostic.

  3. Long live Ulyanov LENIN....CUBA 1959

  4. Even though the concepts of communism is equality, it is impossible without God. Francis of Assisi is a great saint who made it possible in the true way. Remind that the catholic church is calling him as second Christ. This implies that really communism need Christ.

  5. He wouldn't be the first hardcore atheist to convert, but I don't think he even converted, at least not to a religion. Recognizing a Catholic saint did it better was pretty close.

  6. This is pure fiction!
