If I saw pictures of our Bishop being honoured at a local Masonic event, I would be going ballistic right now.
Rorate Caeli reported that Brazillian Bishop, Luiz Demetrio Valentini of the Diocese of Jales, went on April 10th to the Masonic Lodge "Colonel Balthazar" in Jales, in honor of its 53rd anniversary.
Here is His Lordship being welcomed into the Lodge. Why is everyone in 'clerical dress' except His Lordship, I wonder? It couldn't be, could it, that involvement with Freemasons diminishes Catholic truth, Catholic belief and Catholic identity? All very odd and more than a little concerning. Hopefully, the involvement of Bishops with Masonic lodges is confined to the Diocese of Jales.
