"There is another problem, another one: the problem is to form a lobby ... a lobby of Masons. This is the most serious problem for me." - Salt and Light
i noticed this too, when was the last time the word mason rolled off a popes tongue even in passing though?
He's just throwing the bitter trads a bone... Nothing fills a mad trad with holy zeal like the thought of masons--not even a Solemn Pontifical High Mass celebrated by His Eminence Raymond Cardinal Burke. I have it on good authority from the Fisheaters site that Cardinal Burke actually gained enough votes to be pope before Bergoglio, but the ballot was suppressed. What?
LOL! I like that.
To be fair, masons in Italy are much different, and much more anti-Catholic than ours.
but both are condemned by the Popes to be sure because of what they teach
Masons are also a big problem in Latin America.
"In his book Athanasius and the Church of Our Time, Bishop Rudolph Graber (903-1992) former bishop of Regensburg, Germany quoted a Freemason who declared that “the goal (of Freemasonry) is no longer the destruction of the Church, but to make use of it by infiltrating it.”3In other words, since Freemasonry cannot completely obliterate Christ’s Church, it plans not only to eradicate the influence of Catholicism in society, but to use the Church’s structure as an instrument of “renewal,” “progress” and “enlightenment” - as means of furthering many of its own principles and goals.
That makes sense.
