  1. Another outstanding program guys. I confess not to have Br. Alexis understanding of the depth of Masonic influence in the USA which appears to be all controlling. This brings up the Catholic question.

    Why I wonder hasn’t the Catholic Church called this Masonic influence out years ago and then re-iterate it constantly? One might assume that our Bishops themselves are Freemasons or are influenced by them using persuasion methods unknown to most of us. Maybe Brother could enlighten us on this last point.

  2. It seems just like the official papal condemnation of slavery in the 16th century: despite Pope Paul III’s edict of anathema and excommunication from the Church for all those involved with trading or keeping slaves, European powers banned its publication and martyred those who taught the true Church teaching. No one much the wiser, but many much the richer, the slave trade only increased exponentially for the next three centuries.
    With the institution of the Grand Masonic Lodges in London and Paris in the early 18th century, it was soon known that the “spreading the craft” by the “illuminati” meant uprooting the religious and political order of the world brought into existence by Christianity and replacing it with a new relativized structure drawn from pure naturalism and pragmatism. Pope Clement XII in 1738 proclaimed that Catholics who joined or supported Masonic organizations were automatically excommunicated from the Church. Pope Leo XIII in the 19th century proclaimed that ‘the ultimate and principle aim” of Masonry “was to destroy to its very foundations any civil or religious order established throughout Christendom, and bring about in its place a new order founded on laws drawn out of the entrails of naturalism.” After Vatican II the lines became blurry, and by 1983 there were differing interpretations of its being gravely sinful or not, and excommunication was no longer a fixed sanction.
