Open letter by Archbishop and the Influence of Freemasonry within the Catholic Church!

apostasy-modernism  Ven. Pope Pius XII

‘Be brave, now…for the Church has already been invaded by Freemasonry!’ and then stated: ‘Freemasonry has already made it into the loafers (shoes) of the Pope!’ At the time, the reigning “Pope” was Paul VI and of course a Freemason, according to the 1917 Code of Canon Law, cannot be a Catholic as you are automatically excommunicated.   St. Padre Pio

“The secular clergy will leave much to be desired because priests will become careless in their -sacred duties. Lacking the divine compass, they will stray from the road traced by God for the priestly ministry, and they will become attached to wealth and riches, which they will unduly strive to attain. How the Church will suffer during this dark night! Lacking a prelate and a father (Bishop of Rome/Pope) to guide them …many priests will lose their spirit, placing their souls in great danger.” The poor priestly souls that would be left to uphold the Church would suffer greatly. “During these unfortunate times,” she foretold, “evil will invade childhood innocence. In this way, vocations to the priesthood will be lost, resulting in a true calamity.” – Our Lady of Success

 – “Persons joining associations of the Masonic sect or any others of the same kind which plot against the Church and legitimate civil authorities contract, ipso facto, excommunication simply reserved to the Apostolic See”– Canon Law 2335. (1917)

Open letter by Archbishop on the crisis in the Church

(Rorate Caeli) –  I am forced to resort to this public means of expression because I fear that any other method would be greeted by a brick wall of silence and disregard.’

‘It is difficult to believe that Pope Benedict XVI freely renounced his ministry as successor of Peter.’

‘… increasingly evident that the Vatican through the Secretariat of State has taken the course of political correctness.’

Rorate Caeli has obtained an exclusive copy of the English version of a rare open letter from an Archbishop on the crisis of the Church.
The letter, written by His Excellency Archbishop Jan Pawel Lenga, bishop emeritus of the Diocese of Karaganda, Kazakhstan, hopefully will serve as a much-needed wake-up call to Catholics who have buried their heads in the sand for far too long.
Let us pray more of his brother bishops will have the faith — and the backbone — to stand up and be heard before there’s nothing left to defend.

***
Reflections on some current problems of the crisis of the Catholic Church
I had the experience of living with priests who were in Stalinist prisons and camps and who nevertheless remained faithful to the Church. During the time of persecution they fulfilled with love their priestly duty in preaching Catholic doctrine thereby leading a dignified life in the imitation of Christ, their heavenly Master.
I completed my priestly studies in an underground Seminary in the Soviet Union. I was ordained a priest secretly during the night by a pious bishop who himself suffered for the sake of the faith. In the first year of my priesthood I had the experience of being expelled from Tadzhikistan by the KGB.
Subsequently, during my thirty-year stay in Kazakhstan, I served 10 years as priest, caring for faithful people in 81 localities. Then I served 20 years as bishop, initially as bishop of five states in Central Asia with a total area of around four million square kilometers.
In my ministry as a bishop I had contact with Pope Saint John Paul II, with many bishops, priests and faithful in different countries and under different circumstances. I was member of some assemblies of the Synod of Bishops in the Vatican which covered themes such as “Asia” and “The Eucharist”.
This experience as well as others give me the basis to express my opinion on the current crisis of the Catholic Church. These are my convictions and they are dictated by my love of the Church and by the desire for her authentic renewal in Christ.
I am forced to resort to this public means of expression because I fear that any other method would be greeted by a brick wall of silence and disregard.
I am aware of possible reactions to my open letter. But at the same time the voice of my conscience will not allow me to remain silent, while the work of God is being slandered. Jesus Christ founded the Catholic Church and showed us in word and deed how one should fulfill the will of God. The apostles to whom He bestowed authority in the Church, fulfilled with zeal the duty entrusted to them, suffering for the sake of the truth which had to be preached, since they “obeyed God rather than men”.
Unfortunately in our days it is increasingly evident that the Vatican through the Secretariat of State has taken the course of political correctness. Some Nuncios have become propagators of liberalism and modernism. They have acquired expertise in the principle “sub secreto Pontificio”, by which one manipulates and silences the mouths of the bishops. And that what the Nuncio tells them appears as it would be almost certainly the wish of the Pope. With such methods one separates the bishops from one another to the effect that the bishops of a country can no longer speak with one voice in the spirit of Christ and His Church in defending faith and morals. This means that, in order not to fall into disfavour with the Nuncio some bishops accept their recommendations, which are sometimes based on nothing other than on their own words. Instead of zealously spreading the faith, courageously preaching the doctrine of Christ, standing firm in the defense of truth and of morals, the meetings of the Bishops’ Conferences often deal with issues which are foreign to the nature of the duties of the successors of the apostles.
One can observe at all levels of the Church an obvious decrease of the “sacrum”. The “spirit of the world” feeds the shepherds. The sinners give the Church the instructions for how she has to serve them. In their embarrassment the Pastors are silent on the current problems and abandon the sheep while they are feeding themselves. The world is tempted by the devil and opposes the doctrine of Christ. Nevertheless the Pastors are obliged to teach the whole truth about God and men “in season and out”.
However, during the reign of the last holy Popes one could observe in the Church the greatest disorder concerning the purity of the doctrine and the sacredness of the liturgy, in which Jesus Christ is not paid the visible honour which he is due. In not a few Bishop’s Conferences the best bishops are “persona non grata”. Where are apologists of our days, who would announce to men in a clear and comprehensible manner the threat of the risk of loss of faith and salvation?
In our days the voice of the majority of the bishops rather resembles the silence of the lambs in the face of furious wolves, the faithful are left like defenseless sheep. Christ was recognized by men as one who spoke and worked, as one, who had power and this power He bestowed upon His apostles. In today’s world the bishops must liberate themselves from all worldly bonds and – after they have done penance – convert to Christ so that strengthened by the Holy Spirit they may announce Christ as the one and only Saviour. Ultimately one must give account to God for all that was done and for all what wasn’t done.
In my opinion the weak voice of many bishops is a consequence of the fact, that in the process of the appointment of new bishops the candidates are insufficiently examined with regard to their doubtless steadfastness and fearlessness in the defense of the faith, with regard to their fidelity to the centuries-old traditions of the Church and their personal piety. In the issue of the appointment of new bishops and even cardinals it is becoming increasingly apparent that sometimes preference is given to those who share a particular ideology or to some groupings which are alien to the Church and which have commissioned the appointment of a particular candidate. Furthermore it appears that sometimes consideration is given also to the favour of the mass media which usually makes a mockery of holy candidates painting a negative picture of them, whereas the candidates who in a lesser degree own the spirit of Christ are praised as open and modern. On the other side the candidates who excel in apostolic zeal, have courage in proclaiming the doctrine of Christ and show love for all that is holy and sacred, are deliberately eliminated.
A Nuncio once told me: “It’s a pity that the Pope [John Paul II] does not participate personally in the appointment of the bishops. The Pope tried to change something in the Roman Curia, however he has not succeeded. He becomes older and things resume their usual former course”.
At the beginning of the pontificate of Pope Benedict XVI, I wrote a letter to him in which I begged him to appoint holy bishops. I reported to him the story of a German layman who in the face of the degradation of the Church in his country after the Second Vatican Council, remained faithful to Christ and gathered young people for adoration and prayer. This man had been close to death and when he learned about the election of the new Pope he said: “When Pope Benedict will use his pontificate solely for the purpose to appoint worthy, good and faithful bishops, he will have fulfilled his task”.
Ven. Pope Pius XII ora pro nobis.

Ven. Pope Pius XII ora pro nobis.

Unfortunately, it is obvious that, Pope Benedict XVI has often not succeeded in this issue. It is difficult to believe that Pope Benedict XVI freely renounced his ministry as successor of Peter. Pope Benedict XVI was the head of the Church, his entourage however has barely translated his teachings into life, bypassed them often in silence or has rather obstructed his initiatives for an authentic reform of the Church, of the liturgy, of the manner to administer Holy Communion. In view of a great secrecy in the Vatican for many bishops it was realistically impossible to help the Pope in his duty as head and governor of the whole Church.
St. Pius X warning.    Our Lady of Lourdes and St. Pius X ora pro nobis.

Our Lady of Lourdes and St. Pius X, ora pro nobis.

It will not be superfluous to remind my brothers in the episcopacy of an affirmation made by an Italian masonic lodge from the year 1820:
Our work is a work of a hundred years. Let us leave the elder people and let us go to the youth. The seminarians will become priests with our liberal ideas. We shall not flatter ourselves with false hopes. We will not make the Pope a Freemason. However liberal bishops, who will work in the entourage of the Pope, will propose to him in the task of governing the Church such thoughts and ideas which are advantageous for us and the Pope will implement them into life”. This intention of the Freemasons is being implemented more and more openly, not only thanks to the declared enemies of the Church but with the connivance of false witnesses who occupy some high hierarchical office in the Church.
It is not without reason that Blessed Paul VI said: “The spirit of Satan penetrated through a crack inside the Church”. I think that this crack has become in our days quite wide and the devil uses all forces in order to subvert the Church of Christ. To avoid this, it is necessary to return to the precise and clear proclamation of the Gospel on all levels of ecclesiastical ministry, for the Church possesses all power and grace which Christ gave to her: “All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go therefore, and teach all nations. Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and I am with you always unto the end of the world” (Mt 28, 18-20), “the truth will set you free” (John 8, 32) and “let your word be Yes, yes; No, no: for whatsoever is more than these comes of evil” (Mt 5, 37). The Church cannot adapt herself to the spirit of this world, but must transform the world to the spirit of Christ.
It is obvious that in the Vatican there is a tendency to give in more and more to the noise of the mass media. It is not infrequent that in the name of an incomprehensible quiet and calm the best sons and servants are sacrificed in order to appease the mass media. The enemies of the Church however don’t hand over their faithful servants even when their actions are evidently bad.
When we wish to remain faithful to Christ in word and deed, He Himself will find the means to transform the hearts and souls of men and the world as well will be changed at the appropriate time.
In times of the crisis of the Church God has often used for her true renewal the sacrifices, the tears and the prayers of those children and servants of the Church who in the eyes of the world and of the ecclesiastical bureaucracy were considered insignificant or were persecuted and marginalized because of their fidelity to Christ. I believe that in our difficult time this law of Christ is being realized and that the Church will renew herself thanks to the faithful inner renewal of each of us.

THE GRAND MASTER OF THE GRAND ORIENT OF ITALY CALLS FOR A VATICAN III

FREEMASONRY: THE GRAND MASTER OF THE GRAND ORIENT OF ITALY CALLS FOR A VATICAN III

“I’d like to know what you think Pope Francis of Freemasonry” . And ‘the desire expressed by the Grand Master Stephen Bisi, publicly, at the conclusion of the presentation of the book “The Second Secret” by Ignazio Ingrao (Piemme publisher) organized by the Library Service of the Grand Orient of Italy on 12 June in Rome at the library Arion Via Milano. 

” I am deeply convinced  Bisi-said-  that on the ground of human rights and freedom can be fruitful contacts between the Catholic Church and who is otherwise a believer. I think it’s time to unite rather than divide and I am sure  – he added-  that we can find a valuable point of encounter and dialogue. La Porta Pia in 1870 should be updated. On September 20  -was the wish of the Grand Master-  September 20, 2014, should be remembered for another breach, a breach that can serve to break down the walls that separate different worlds who want to meet. strongly There is need of links. This was also the message of the Second Vatican Council ” , but fifty years ago opened a new all season ‘ inside the Catholic world.  A message that today with the pontificate of Better World takes on a new and very strong innovative drive, which stems from the desire of a remodeling of the Church in his physiognomy, a review of the pastoral care of interpersonal relationships, appreciation of methodology inaugurated in that very special assizes which took place from 1962 to 1965 under the pontificates of John XXIII and Paul VI: open and democratic debate and intense listening to society.  And this “leap of the Church in modern society,” then as now like Freemasonry, which is now just as warm during those years has begun to follow with interest the changes that are outlined Oltretevere.  That event was without a doubt, Ingrao writes in the chapter of his book dedicated to the relationship between the Freemasons and the Church, “a unique season of dialogue and mutual understanding, “” beyond prejudices and historical divisions. ” A momentum that has gone then fading but that at this stage, which appears to have begun a new age reconcile, has every chance to resume.

The central and fundamental question that does not appear in the article of the GOI reported earlier is as follows. All the speakers at the conference hope for the advent of a Vatican Council III . The opportunity to address this topic at the conference is offered from the last chapter of the book that were determined to review and submit on 12 June in Rome: “The Second Secret” Ingrao. Seizing the opportunity how could such defendants at a conference organized by the Grand Orient of Italy did not hope for a renewed season of openness and inter-religious dialogue? And it is the Grand Master of the Grand Orient of Italy, which pronounces the words more alarming and disturbing about the Second Vatican III. a letter sent to the Grand Master Pilloni Bergoglio not only took the numerous statements of praise and support from the riots Raffi Grand Master and the Grand Master Bisi against Bergoglio. Now ask directly a council and a position of Bergoglio of Freemasonry. To not offer biased interpretations and details, I reproduce below the video of the entire speech at the conference, the Grand Master of the Grand Orient of Italy Stefano Bisi:

You can see the entire conference, filmed on site by RadioRadicale, which confirms a brotherly and friendly way connected to the Grand Orient of Italy: http://www.radioradicale.it/scheda/414291

The Catholic Church and Freemasonry

Freemasons
 

HOSTILE FUIT

 
As reported by Giacinto Butindaro, November 12, 2012, at the Cathedral of Buenos Aires, hundreds of people attended the commemoration by the B’nai B’rith Argentina’s Kristallnacht (‘Crystal Night’) which is remembered the devastation conducted by Nazis in Germany, Austria and Czechoslovakia against the Jews. The then Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio, led the event which was attended by senior representatives of the Churches Methodist, Lutheran, Presbyterian and Catholic. Then Abraham H. Foxman, the national director of the ADL, (emanation of B’nai B’rith) welcomes the election of so Bergoglio JM: “We believe that the election of Francis I is an important moment in the history of the Church. We look forward to working with him to continue to promote relations between Catholics and Jews as we did with his predecessors. There is much in his past that reassures us for the future. “
 
The Grand Master Raffi  Palazzo Giustiniani JM Bergoglio, il14 March 2013: ” The simple cross which she wore on the white robe lets hope that a Church of the people find the ability to converse with all men of good will and with Freemasonry that, as shown by the experience of Latin America, working for the good and progress of mankind, having as reference Bolivar, Allende and José Martí, just to name a few. And ‘This is the’ white smoke ‘that we expect from the Church of our time ” .

 What has happened in recent decades between Church and Freemasonry? Let’s take a small step back in time to understand how it has come to those that  the Father Rosario Esposito  defines in his book, “The great concordance between the Catholic Church and Freemasonry.”

 In  Humanum Genus  Leo XIII explains the purpose of Freemasonry, which is to replace the order founded on God with a new order founded on humans. Therefore, the Freemasons,  necessarily , engages in a fight against the Church because the Church is the guardian of the “old order”, trying to compress it, empty it, change it, to rescue humanity that it evangelizes to transform humanity itself according to the dictates of  naturalism  ( one ratio  – denial of divine revelation, dogmas – disobedience to the ecclesiastical magisterium) of  religious indifferentism  (degradation in subjective experience of transcendent truth – religious sentimentalism – ethical relativism), the  phenomenological agnosticism (the reason can not and should not if you do not know your sensitive data – absolute unknowability of divinity and doubt about its existence). The Mason is “not exclusive,” can “follow” a cult but can not claim it to be true than the other, in the objective sense of the term. This is briefly the essence of Masonic doctrine “exoteric”, ie public as addressed to all, while the “esoteric” and “magic” of speculative Freemasonry is reserved only for the initiated. What are the  outcomes  of the Masonic? If the man is not born (as was believed in the “old order”) with original sin and thus do not need any redemption (immanence) being good by nature (Rousseau) and directed to the good of his moral self, one of the outcomes will be libertinism theoretical and practical. If the Member, the school and the family must be separated from the Church and its influence (secularism – naturalism), we need to promote legislation in this regard and disintegrate morally and economically the family, infiltrate the school and the state. If the Church to resist this, as it has done until cxix, the plan would be difficult to complete. The Church must become optimistic towards “modern man” and “open to dialogue” with everyone, even with the Masons (indirectly  Gaudium et Spes,  No. 92). However, the Church is founded on the rock and on the promises of Christ to St. Peter. Therefore, it should also affect the Papacy, trying to elect people with a certain mindset Masonic, penetrating into the Church by prelates ideally (if not structurally) contiguous realize that “reforms” such as the “collegiality” ( Lumen Gentium ) that the episcopal conferences the parish councils (democratism) dilutes the monarchical nature of the Church, favoring the disunity of the same, although often in key doctrinal. It must be hit in the world of believers, the certainty of the oneness of the Church as the only means of salvation, through the theological ecumenism ( UR . –  NA .) and pragmatic (not proselytize – humanitarianism – inter-religious meetings) that generate some sort of objectively “religious indifferentism” and “dogmatic relativism”. Need to be endorsed by the ecclesiastical reforms suffered from temporal power: if states recognize religious freedom and the Church no plan is complicated. The ‘popes’ post-conciliar (applying the  Dignitatis Humanae ), you are taken to ensure that the states that still declared themselves Catholics to renounce the principle of confessional. Here at last, on the death of GB Montini, the Grand Master Giordano Gamberini (Rev. Mass. 1978) will pay homage as “not dead in hostilities with the Masons.” After the liturgical revolution of Msgr. Bugnini and the card. Lercaro (both in the odor of Freemasonry), the work needed to complete the canonical one. The CJC 1917 Can. 2335 included anti-Christian members of Freemasonry excommunication  latae sententiae  (no need to with conviction) reserved to the Holy See, with the obligation of the confessor to be authorized in order to carry it; to Can. 2336 additional penalties for clergy members of Freemasonry and obligation to report them.
As revealed by the site  www.massoneriascozzese.it  : “From the ’60s onwards, the thaw is growing, the dialogue begins to work for various Catholic scholars including Caprile father and father Rosario Esposito, leading experts of the possible concordance between the Catholic Church and Freemasonry … 1966: The Baltic-Scandinavian Episcopal Conference authorized the Masons or Catholics who converted to Catholicism to operate in the Lodges … 1974 July 17: Cardinal Franjo Seper, Cardinal Ratzinger’s predecessor as chairman of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith In a letter to Cardinal John Joseph Krol, president of the North American Episcopal Conference, is in favor of openness to Freemasonry. “
 

“I’d like to know what you think Pope Francis of Freemasonry!!!”

Be brave, now…for the Church has already been invaded by Freemasonry!’ and then stated: ‘Freemasonry has already made it into the loafers (shoes) of the Pope!’ At the time, the reigning “Pope” was Paul VI – St.Padre Pio

The fourth reason the lamp was put out was to demonstrate how the Masonic and other secret sects would have so much influence on society and even the Church. “During these unfortunate times,” she foretold, “evil will invade childhood innocence. In this way, vocations to the priesthood will be lost, resulting in a true calamity.” – Our Lady Of Good Success

Freemasonry the mother of them all

It was Not enough the numerous statements of praise and support directed by the Grand Master and the Grand Master Raffi Bisi against Bergoglio .

Now the Freemasons of the Grand Orient of Italy dose increase the price, and they do it in rare and unique opportunity. We refer to the conference organized by the Grand Orient of Italy held on June 12, 2014 in Rome.  theme of this conference was the Second Vatican Council.

I reproduce below the article with which the GOI has announced the conference through its official website:

“The Service of the Library of the Grand Orient of Italy organizes – June 12 at 18:00 at the Palace of Exhibitions, Library Arion, Forum Hall (corner of Via Milano 15-17 Via Nazionale, Rome) – a lively debate on” The Church of the dialogue from Second Vatican Council, Pope Francis. “This occasion is the release of the book The Second Secret (Piemme) of the Vatican journalist Ignazio Ingrao. Speakers with author, historian Alberto Melloni, theologian Marinella Perroni and the Grand Master Stephen Bisi . Moderates the meeting the journalist Marco Politi.

Understanding an event so innovative and paradigmatic as was the Second Vatican Council, and doing so through a reading unofficial but rooted in evidence and unpublished documents often means having the opportunity to go to the root of what is happening today in the Catholic Church. Studying the council yesterday, it helps us to anticipate the Church of tomorrow. Pope Francis has picked up the baton from its predecessors by taking the strong commitment and decided to implement the Council. The Church in dialogue projected outwards, as he wants the pontiff Argentine, the model proposes that the Council Fathers wished to achieve. 

A valuable point of contact and dialogue with the laity and non-believers can be one of human rights. The commitment to justice based on the recognition of the essential principles of natural law, characterizes the action of the Church at all latitudes and often also involves a high price to pay, even in terms of attacks and persecution. The defense of human rights and the recognition of the principles of natural law that guide the common good can therefore be a useful platform for discussion and debate for all those who have at heart the promotion of the human person. ”  [SOURCE]

Here to see the invitation to the conference:  http://www.grandeoriente.it/media/343054/Invito-RM-12-06-14.pdf

So Vaticanists and Masons, united by the dialogue, they arranged to Rome for the June 12. This has not happened for at least two decades, in fact, the last documented that the GOI has organized conferences, hosting Vaticanists and “Catholics” [Father Rosario Esposito John Caprile or two examples] back in the early 90s, after such conferences numerous proliferated in the late ’70s and the ’80s. Let us now, in the absence of a video conference on June 12, declaring what about the official web site of the Grand Orient of Italy, to carry the article comments that the GOI has issued the day after the conference:

 “I’d like to know what you think Pope Francis of Freemasonry” . And ‘the desire expressed by the Grand Master Stephen Bisi, publicly, at the conclusion of the presentation of the book “The Second Secret” by Ignazio Ingrao (Piemme publisher) organized by the Library Service of the Grand Orient of Italy on 12 June in Rome at the library Arion Via Milano. 

” I am deeply convinced  Bisi-said-  that on the ground of human rights and freedom can be fruitful contacts between the Catholic Church and who is otherwise a believer. I think it’s time to unite rather than divide and I am sure  – he added-  that we can find a valuable point of encounter and dialogue.
