We should trap priests with their infamous greed and complacency. Thus, we will be able to settle everything with them in perfect peace and harmony. I will give them a one-year break. Why should we argue? They will swallow everything to keep their material benefits. Things will never get worse. They will recognize a firm will and we will only have to show them once or twice who the Master is. You will know in which direction the wind is blowing.  We are living in a time of ultimate conflict with Christianity. Giving the German people, over the next half century, the non-Christian ideological foundations on which they can lead and shape their lives, is part of the mission of the SS. This task is not only to overcome an ideological adversary, but must be accompanied at every stage by a positive impulse: in this case, the reconstruction of the German heritage in the broadest and broadest sense of the term.
After the federal elections of July 1932, the Nazis were the largest party in the Reichstag. Hitler withdrew his support for Papen and asked for the chancellery; Hindenburg refused. The Nazis turned to the centrist party to form a coalition, but no agreement was reached.  Papen dissolved Parliament and Nazi votes declined in the November 1932 federal election.  Hindenburg appointed Schleicher chancellor, and the aggrieved papen got along with Hitler.  Hindenburg appointed Hitler Chancellor of the Reich on January 30, 1933 in a coalition between the Nazis and the DNVP. Papen should serve as vice chancellor in a cabinet with a conservative majority and mistakenly believe that he could “tame” Hitler.  Papen opposed Nazi excesses and narrowly escaped death on the night of the long knives, when he stopped openly criticizing Hitler`s government. German Catholics welcomed the Nazis` rise to power with concern, as prominent clergy had warned against Nazism for years.  A threatening, though sporadic, persecution of the Catholic Church in Germany has begun.  Papen went to Rome on April 8. The outgoing president of the centrist party, Ludwig Kaas, who arrived just before him in Rome, negotiated a project with him on behalf of pacellis.
The concordat extended Kaas` stay in Rome and left his party without a president; he resigned on 5 May and the party elected Heinrich Brüning under increasing pressure from the Nazi campaign for standardisation. The bishops saw a project of May 30, 1933, when they gathered for a joint meeting of the Fulda (presided over by Cardinal Bertram of Wroclaw) and the Bavarian Conference (under the leadership of Michael von Faulhaber of Munich). . . .
