Another Controversial Front Cover for Pope Francis


Courtesy of Masonic Times

'One (of the many) Italian Grand Master, Gian Franco Pilloni sent a letter to the leader of the Holy See asking Pope Francis "to put an end to the gaps that still sustain a wall" between the two institutions: the Craft and the Catholic Church.

In the letter sent Thursday to the Pope, Gian Franco Pilloni (leading one of the UMSOI's branches in Italy) said that:
"Your Holiness I am writing to you to make a humble request to act for ending the divisions that stand between the relations of the Catholic Church with Freemasonry, hoping that finally will reign the just peace between the two institutions, ending the gaps that still sustain a wall."
For the record, Pilloni's UMSOI split from Simonetti's UMSOI and those Masonic Grand Lodges have nothing to do with the Regular Grand Lodge of Italy (recognized by UGLE) nor the Grand Orient of Italy (host of the XXIV Conference of Grand Secretaries and Chancellor of Europe).'
Just a reminder. It is mortally sinful to be an active member of a masonic lodge and it bars the Catholic from receiving Holy Communion to be so. Obviously, in Pope Francis, Freemasons believe that upon the Throne of St Peter is someone they can 'work with'. Let us pray that Francis, at some point in his pontificate, tells the Freemasons where to get off and addresses a problem of Freemasonry within the Church that is said to extend even to the heart of the Vatican itself.

The Freemasons still remember crucial dates:

Grand Master Raffi: "With Pope Francis, nothing will be more as it was before. It is a clear choice of fraternity for a Church of dialogue, which is not contaminated by the logic and temptations of temporal power"

It seems that Catholics still need to be taught that Freemasonry is satanism.

John Salza has written extensively on this.
http://www.johnsalza.com/p/masonry.html

coming from a family with, who knows how many generations of masons - thought it was just two, but that seems, now, a self-absorbed observation. these men hate the church. They hate an authority that 'challenges' their own gnosticism, in other words their self conceived god/s, or more pointedly their servitude to perceived devils. And they know about magical rites. They stole much of what is rite from Jewish temple days, then mocked the Catholic Eucharistic Rite. It has been suggested that the Mithraic lodges of the post-Jerusalem Roman Empire had rabbinical roots, a deeply antichrist 'spirituality' which informed these romans who were, themselves, responsible for the destruction of the temple.

a Freemason at a low level (can still be a nice bloke) is a pleb, someone who's will, money and expertise is vampired from the higher ups. and the higher-ups (no longer nice blokes. blokes who live with agendas, not human beings, and certainly not consecrated-host-soaked anathemas) are the vampires plugging the veins of their self-assured agendas with the blood and sweat, finances, or whatever of those not quite lower on the inverted portion (of a double) pyramid, human beings.

Surely, under Benedict, no mason would have been thick enough to write such a letter. Pope Benedict XVI was the most recent of many Popes to condemn association with Freemasonry (about as anti-True-Catholicism as one can get).

Let's hope Bishop Bergoglio, if there's a public response, simply calls this deluded waif to conversion and points out that freemasonry is a grave sin - no Catholic under such a delusion my receive Holy Communion.

Things have gone beyond crazy. Diabolical disorientation. Did they invite the Pope to head up a One World Church?!!

The Freemasons are very good at doing marketing for Satan. For instance, in Spain they have managed to convince the Priors of certain monasteries ( among them, Franciscans! a mess everywhere!!) to have their meetings and other propaganda activities.
Here in the North of England, I have come across clergy who does not want to engage in discussions about these fellows. Is it the same in others parts of the country? We Catholics need more tools/teaching in order to discern who is behind all these masonic activity (Rotary Club i.e. et al).
St Michael defend us in these times of tribulation!

Is this a joke or for real? The mason really sent Francis a letter saying that?

It's no wonder that sedes are jumping ship over this. But they shouldn't. They jump off the Barque of Peter to their doom.

Climb back into the boat, people. The Church needs us to fight modernism from the inside.
