  The  deliberately plannned fusion of CHRISTIANITY
  and TALMUDIC JUDAISM (father of  Freemasonry  and
  "kindred  Secret  Societies"), in its swift surge
  to   completely   obliterate   Christianity,   is
  becoming   so   alarming  to  informed,  Militant
  Catholics, that the necessity for reprinting  the
  great  speech  of  Monsiegneur  Jouin is urgently
  needed, to spread among the faithful..
  The scholorly late Msgr. Jouin, founder of "Revue
  International  des  Societies Secretes" and world
  authority on Jewish history and objectives,  knew
  the necessity for exposing these facts in defense
  of Christianity. Thus, in all his masterly works,
  most  of  which  have  not  been  translated into
  English, he  showed  the Judeo-Masonic  peril  to
  Christianity and reitered the golden VOICE of the
  The Vatican formally praised him for this work of
  enlightenment  as  far  back  as  June, 1919 in a
  letter  signed  by   Cardinal   Gasparri,   Papal
  Secretary  of  State  and  he  was  accorded  the
  Apostolic Blessing. (Letter reproduced in full on
  page 30.)
  The  reprinted speech of Msgr. Jouin takes on new
  meaning in view of the current  rush  of  Priests
  and   Religious   who   are   eager   to   accept
  Judeo-Masonic "BROTHERHOOD"  awards,  Grants  and
  Political  favors.  No  longer  can  the alterted
  laity remain silent to the HERESY  of  INTERFAITH
  (including   JUDEO-CHRISTIAINTY)  that  is  being
  perpetrated  in  DEFIANCE  of  the  oft  repeated
  infallible Encyclicals of Our Great Popes.
  Pope  Clement XIII gives the Pontiff's command in
  unmistakable terms, which EVEN TO THE UNINFORMED,
  cannot be misinterpreted:
  "We  have  resolved  and  decreed  to condemn and
  forbid  such  Societies,  assemblies,   reunions,
  conventions,   aggregations  or  meetings  called
  either Freemasonic  or  known  under  some  other

  The  Papacy  and  Freemasonry,
  a Speech by Monseigneur Jouin,  December 8,  1930
  Papacy and Freemasonry, those are the two  powers
  active  throughout  the world and each is seeking
  to dominate it.  The  solution  of  the  struggle
  taking  place  between  them  is,  at the present
  moment of the utmost importance; for we are  face
  to  face  not only with the crossroads of history
  but  also  with  a  radical   transformation   of
  humanity  itself.  Either  Roman Catholicism will
  lift us  up  again  to  the  level  of  Christian
  civilization  or  else Judeo-Masonry will drag us
  down the path of barbarism and decadent paganism.
  The  whole  world  oscillates  between  the  two:
  Christianism and Paganism. On December 8th, 1892,
  Pope  Leo  XIII  wrote  to  the Italian Episcopal
  Hierarchy: "It is necessary to fight  Freemasonry
  with  those weapons of divine faith which in past
  ages vanquished paganism."
  Moreover the Papacy and Judeo-Masonry are both so
  fully  conscious  of  the  diametrically  opposed
  parts that they are playing that they assume that
  from  it  must  issue  the  political,  economic,
  intellectual and religious future of  individuals
  as  well  as  of  nations.  It  is a fact and the
  better  proof  of   it   is   their   irreducible
  antagonism toward each other.
  What  is,  indeed, Judeo-Masonry today if not the
  concentration  and  mobilization  of   all   evil
  forces?  This  Sect  with  its threefold claim of
  being  Counter-Church   (against   the   Church),
  Counter-State    (against    the    State)    and
  Counter-Morality (against  traditional  morality)
  takes  pride in being above all and for all times
  the enemy of the  Catholic  Church;  one  of  its
  rallying  calls  is  that of Tigrotto, one of the
  Alta Vendita chiefs  who,  in  1822,  proclaimed:
  "Catholicism  must  be  destroyed  throughout the
  whole   world."   With    Tigrotto    also    the
  anti-Catholic  plan  is  expressed  thus: "Let us
  conspire  only  against  Rome."   Is   this   not
  expressed  in  an  identical manner in the German
  "Los Von Rom" or in the English: "No Popery?"
  Monseigneur Gay,  having  been  assigned  by  the
  Council  of  the  Vatican  the duty of writing "A
  Memorandum  on  Secret   Societies,"   gave   the
  following striking definition of Freemasonry: "It
  is evident that in a general way,  this  doctrine
  of Freemasonry is not only a heresy, nor even the
  totality of all heresies,  which  find  in  it  a
  haven;  it is a fact that Masonry goes beyond the
  limits of  what  constitutes  what  is  generally
  ascribed to the word 'heresy,' for it allows full
  play to the commission of outrageous  perversion.
  Freemasonry  is  indeed  the abyss of all errors,
  the well of perdition."
  Catholic King Louis XVI, King of France Louis XVI
  Distributes   Alms   to   the   Poor  The  French
  Revolution's Satanic Freemasonic Creed The  Reign
  of  Terror  Execution  of  Catholic Monarch Louis
  XVI, January 21, 1793
  This abyss of all  errors  (Abyssus  Errorum)  is
  justly  compared  to the "abysmal well' mentioned
  in Revelation (abyssus putei, ix,  1-3  ),  whose
  emanations darken the light of the sun and poison
  the  air.  It  is  this   accursed   Sect   whose
  perversion  was  stigmatized by Pope Pius IX when
  he named it: "The Synagogue of Satan." Due to its
  enormous  extension and its nowadays very visible
  collusion  with  International  Jewish   Finance,
  Freemasonry  has  indeed become the "Synagogue of
  Satan." As such it provided funds for the Russian
  revolution,   installed  in  Moscow;  it  carried
  Communism  from  East  to  West,  took   up   the
  leadership  of States of their governments, their
  various administration departments or ministries,
  and  of their parliaments and, in consequence, it
  is such a world power  that  for  any  discerning
  mind,  it  seems  as  though, today, there are on
  earth only two great powers, viz.:  Judeo-Masonry
  in  the  service of World Jewry and the Church in
  the hands of Peter's successor. Those two  powers
  are  at  war,  face to face as though fighting an
  endless duel, as  is  clearly  expressed  in  the
  stone inscription of the Masonic Grand Orient and
  Supreme Council  of  France:  "The  fight  taking
  place  between  Catholicism  and Freemasonry is a
  fight  to   the   very   death,   ceaseless   and
  merciless."  (Bulletin  of  the  Grand  Orient of
  France P. 183. 1892  and  in  memorandum  of  the
  Supreme Council No. 85, page 48.)
  With such a rallying definite line of action, one
  can positively affirm that Judeo-Masonry  is  the
  unique enemy of the Church. It can be detected in
  all anti-Catholic attacks against clergy or laity
  led  either  by  Freemasons  or by even Catholics
  whose faith has decreased  due  to  either  fear,
  passion or self-interest.
  In  his  encyclical "Humanum Genus" Pope Leo XIII
  wrote: "There  exists  in  the  world  a  certain
  number   of   sects   which   although  seemingly
  different one from another as  to  name,  ritual,
  form  and origin are, however, similar due to the
  analogy  of  their  aim  and  chief   principles.
  Indeed,  they  are identical to Freemasonry which
  is, for them all, the central  point  from  which
  they  proceed  and  toward  which they converge."
  Further, in his  letter  to  the  Italian  people
  dated  December  8,  1892,  Pope Leo XIII writes:
  "Let   us   remember   that   Christianity    and
  Freemasonry are essentially incompatible, to such
  an extent, that to become united with  one  means
  being divorced from the other. Let us, therefore,
  expose Freemasonry as the enemy of  God,  of  the
  Church and of our Motherland."
  St.    Peter, First Pope of the Catholic Church
  At  the  present  moment (1930) it is a fact that
  St. Augustine's two cities, the City of Good  and
  The  City  of  Evil are separate, each seeking to
  rule in the world. The  City  of  Evil  ruled  by
  Satan  is  named  Judeo-Masonry;  insistently  it
  proclaims   to   all,   Catholics,   Protestants,
  Orthodox, to Freethinkers, Communists and Pagans,
  in fact  to  the  whole  world  that:  "To  fight
  against   papacy   is   a  social  necessity  and
  constitutes the constant  duty  of  Freemasonry."
  (Masonic  International Congress held in Brussels
  1904, page 132 of the report. ) The City of  Good
  and  of  Jesus Christ is the Catholic Church; for
  over 19 centuries, according to the  teaching  of
  the  Roman  Pontiff, She repeats to the world Her
  immutable creed: I believe in the  Holy  Catholic
  and Apostolic Church.
  Such  is  the  subject  of my conference. From an
  over-all viewpoint, there should  issue  a  solid
  appreciation  of  the  work  of a number of Popes
  done on the subject of the  Sect  of  Freemasonry
  from  the time it made its appearance in the 18th
  century.  It  showed   its   anti-religious   and
  anti-social    activities    as   well   as   its
  licentiousness and its aims which, from the  very
  beginning,  were  susceptible of excommunication.
  It showed also its prodigious development leading
  to   the  situation  which  I  already  sketched,
  namely, the duality of forces: one, the forces of
  evil concentrating in Judeo-Masonry and the other
  the forces of good,  concentrated  in  one  flock
  under    the   staff   of   the   one   shepherd;
  (representative of Jesus Christ) who, since  1738
  has constantly renewed the appeal for the defense
  of the Church against Her mortal  enemy  --  even
  though  in many instances the appeal was useless.
  Surrounded by Ghettos and Masonic Lodges, in  the
  course  of  a  fight  which has become universal,
  Popes have reiterated their  appeal  for  defense
  and  have clearly shown the place and the duty of
  Catholics -- all too  frequently  the  place  has
  been left deserted and the duty has been betrayed
  in a shameful manner. However, even if in our day
  we  are  witnessing  the terrific confirmation of
  these truths, it is necessary  to  remember  that
  they were proclaimed by several Popes.

  + Pope Clement XII 1730-1740
  Founded in 1717, modern speculative Masonry  took
  on  its  actual form following the publication by
  Anderson, a clergyman, of the "Constitutions"  in
  1723.  Fifteen  years  later,  on April 28, 1738,
  Pope Clement XII in his  Pontifical  Constitution
  "In  Eminenti"  condemned  Freemasonry  as  being
  Counter-Church  and  Counter-State.  It  was  the
  Pontifical  reply.  Failure  to  heed it, whether
  partial or general, by the Church and  the  State
  of  those  days,  seems  to  us as the primordial
  cause of all our political and religious  present
  day turmoil.
  Thus said Pope Clement XII:
  "Let us meditate upon the serious evils which are
  usually the result of those kinds of Societies or
  centers,   not   only  concerning  the  peace  of
  temporal States, but still more  as  regards  the
  salvation  of  souls.  Those Societies are not in
  agreement with the civil and economic laws of the
  "In  order  to  close  the  widely  open  road to
  iniquities which might be committed with impunity
  and  also for other reasons, just and reasonable,
  that have come to our knowledge .  .  .  We  have
  resolved  and  decreed to condemn and forbid such
  Societies,  assemblies,  reunions,   conventions,
  aggregations    or    meetings    called   either
  Freemasonic   or   known   under    some    other
  denomination. We condemn and forbid them by this,
  our  present  constitution,  which   is   to   be
  considered valid for ever."
  However,  not  only  is  the condemnation by Pope
  Clement XII extended to  Masonic  Sects,  but  it
  applies also to all the laymen who, although they
  are not members of Societies called  Freemasonic,
  favor  them,  in any manner, thus: "We command to
  the faithful to  abstain  from  intercourse  with
  those   societies   .  .  .  in  order  to  avoid
  excommunication,  which  will  be   the   penalty
  imposed  upon all those contravening to this, our
  order. None, except at the point of death,  could
  be  absolved of this son except by us or the then
  existing Roman Pontiff."
  The  Constitution  "In  Eminenti"  was   extended
  throughout  all  the  Papal  States  by  Cardinal
  Ferrao's Edict of January 14th, 1739.
  + Pope Benedict XIV 1740-1758
  Pope  Benedict  XIV,  on March 16, 1751 published
  the Constitution "Providas" in which he  inserted
  in  full  In  Eminenti,  the  Bull which had been
  written by his predecessor, Clement XII, in order
  to  make it very evident that the condemnation of
  Freemasonry was irrevocable and was to be applied
  to the future as well as to the present.
  As  a  matter  of fact, Benedict XIV, had already
  denounced Masonry as  being  Counter-Morality  in
  connection with the Order of Felicity of Avignon,
  a Secret Society of debauchers; among  themselves
  the  members of this Society spoke only in a kind
  of slangy language usually used by  sailors.  The
  Pope  mentions  it twice in his correspondence. I
  am here transcribing a few lines from his  letter
  of March 25th, 1744, addressed to the Cardinal de
  Tencin, who was the Pontifical Ambassador at  the
  Court  of  King  Louis XV: "We have received from
  Avignon the  news  that  in  Nimes  and  also  at
  Montpellier   the   Freemasons   gave   a   great
  entertainment in order to gain proselytes.  Women
  and men from the Avignon Society went to it, and,
  doubtless, upon their return they will organize a
  Freemasonic   Lodge  as  they  once  had  already
  attempted to do under  the  name  of  Society  of
  Felicity;  they  might  have succeeded had it not
  been for the zeal of the Archbishop. We wish  you
  to  protest,  in  Our name, to His most Christian
  Majesty. so that He Will  not  authorize  in  His
  States,   the  Sect  of  Freemasons  which  other
  Princes have extirpated from their own  country."
  (From  the correspondence of Pope Benedict XIV by
  Gmile de Heckeren. )
  Furthermore,  in  his  Constitution,  "Providas,"
  Benedict  XIV  enumerates six reasons which drove
  Pope Clement XII to strike Secret Societies; they
  are 1) the Interconfessonalism (or Interfaith) of
  Freemasons; 2) their secret; 3)  their  oath;  4)
  their  opposition  to  Church  and  State; 5) the
  interdiction pronounced against them  in  several
  States  by  the  Heads of such countries; and, 6)
  their immorality  which  the  Pope  characterizes
  thus:  "Those Societies, according to men who are
  prudent and honest, are ill-famed, and to  become
  a   member   thereof,  would  lead  to  evil  and
  From the outset, before the 18th  century,  under
  the  efforts  of  Masonry  which sank us into the
  horrors of the French Revolution,  the  Sect  had
  been unmasked by the Popes and exposed before the
  eyes of the  Catholics  with  its  odious  triple
  shame  of  Counter-Morality,  Counter-State,  and
  above all, Counter-Church. Let  a  Freemason,  F.
  Limousin,  in  his  first  number  of the Masonic
  Review called "L'ACACIA," of October, 1902, using
  the   pen-name  of  Hiram,  gives  the  following
  characteristic  definition:  "Freemasonry  is  an
  association  .  . . an institution . . . so it is
  said . . . but it is not that at all. Let us lift
  up   all   the   veils,  risking  even  to  evoke
  numberless  protestations.   Freemasonry   is   a
  church:     It     is     the     Counter-Church,
  Counter-Catholicism: It is the  other  church  --
  the   church   of  heresy,  of  Freethought;  The
  Catholic Church is considered  as  the  arch-type
  church, the first church, church of dogmatism and
  of orthodoxy."
  + Pope Clement XIII 1758-1769
  I  wish  to add that during the 18th century Pope
  Clement XIII condemned highly placed Masons in an
  ordinance  of  January, 1759, against the work of
  Helvetius and this Pope published on  Sept.  3rd,
  1759,   his  constitution  "Ut  Primum"  directed
  against  the  "Encyclopedie"   of   Diderot   and
  d'Alembert   .  Finally,  in  his  Encyclical  of
  November  25th,  1766,  "Christianae   Republicae
  Salus,"  Pope  Clement  XIII  denounced the peril
  incurred  by  Church  and   State   through   the
  published  works  of  so-called  philosophers. It
  meant that all Voltairian and Masonic works  were
  being anathemized in the following terms:
  "The enemy of all Good," said the Pope, "has sown
  the evil seed in the field of the  Lord  and  the
  evil  grain has grown rapidly, to such an extent,
  that it threatens to destroy the harvest.  It  is
  time  to  cut  it  down." "In our days nothing is
  free from the attacks of those who  are  impious.
  God  Himself becomes the object of their insolent
  audacity, they represent Him as a  being  who  is
  mute,  inert,  devoid of a sense of providence or
  justice; they lower Him  down  to  the  level  of
  animals.  As far as they are concerned, matter is
  all or at least dominates everything. Even  those
  among  them who are opposed to such gross errors,
  but too frequently in our days, are  not  afraid,
  in  their  pride, to scrutinize our mysteries and
  to submit everything to  nothing  but  their  own
  reasoning power."
  Clement  XIII  exposes  all  the sores of Masonry
  which at the time of the  French  Revolution  had
  reached   the   state   of   gangrene,   such  as
  Materialism, Nationalism, Deism and even  Atheism
  which  is  most  imperfectly veiled by the "Grand
  Architect of the Universe," a notion which, after
  all,  is  only  the  spontaneous evolution of the
  universal    religion     promised     in     the
  "Constitutions"   of  Anderson.  In  a  last  but
  anxious appeal the Pope entreats all the  Bishops
  in  the Catholic world to link their efforts with
  his own and to beseech all Christian  Princes  to
  take in hand the defense of the Sorrowing Church,
  "Gementis  Ecclesiae  Causam  Exposcite."  Listen
  attentively,  23  years  before 1789 (year of the
  French Revolution) the Church was in  tears,  due
  to  the  threats held out by Freemasonry; who can
  vouch for the assumption that 23 years remain  to
  us  before  the Judeo-Masonry of the 20th century
  will add to the tears being shed by the Church --
  blood  tears  similar  to those shed during 1793?
  But this time it will not be in France only,  but
  throughout  the whole world. Is this not the time
  to speak again of the Sorrowing Church?
  + Pope Pius VI 1795-1799
  During the last  quarter  of  this  18th  century
  during  which  Masonry  had  spent  72  years  to
  prepare for 1789 and the bloodshed which  was  to
  last  many  years, Peter's Seat had been occupied
  by Pius VI, who was destined to die in exile. His
  first  Encyclical  of  December  25, 1775, is the
  acknowledgment  of  the  tears   he   has   shed,
  "Nostrarum  Vim Pacrymarum Exquirit," those tears
  caused by the so-called  philosophers,  fanatical
  enemies   of  the  Church,  professors  of  lies.
  "Magistros Mendacissimos," leaders  of  sects  of
  perdition  who,  with  their  erroneous  beliefs,
  penetrate into the seats of the Academies, in the
  houses  of  the notables, in the Courts of Kings,
  and what is still more horrible,  even  penetrate
  in  the  Lord's  Sanctuary, "Etiam in sanctuarium
  Alas! Those "Sects of Perdition" at the  hour  of
  the  Revolution dragged along too many members of
  the regular and secular Clergy whose names appear
  on the lists of Masonic lodges: "Corruptio optimi
  pessima." What of the situation today?
  + Pope Pius VII 1800-1823
  Let  us now enter into the 19th century. The wars
  of the French Revolution and of the Empire spread
  and   favored  the  creation  of  Masonic  lodges
  (mostly Military lodges) and the  rapid  European
  expansion of Masonic subversive ideas.
  Pope Pius VII became one of its glorious victims.
  It  was  therefore,  in  full  knowledge  of  the
  subject,   that   on   September,  1821,  in  his
  Encyclical  "Ecclesiam  a  Jesu-Cristo  the  Pope
  applied  to  the  Carbonari  the  following text:
  "They come under the guise of sheep although they
  are,  in  truth, none but ravening wolves." Thus,
  the Pope reiterated against  the  Freemasons  the
  condemnations   pronounced  by  Clement  XII  and
  Benedict XIV because they propagandize "religious
  indifference   which   is,   of   all,  the  most
  pernicious"; They also  grant  to  everyone  full
  liberty   to   inaugurate  for  himself  his  own
  religion according to his ideas and inclinations;
  to also profane and sully Our Savior's Passion in
  some of  their  odious  ceremonies;  to  hold  in
  contempt the Sacraments of the Church to which in
  a horrible sacrilegious  manner  they  substitute
  sacraments  of their own invention and they treat
  with  derision  the  Mysteries  of  the  Catholic
  Religion.  Lastly,  urged  by a particular hatred
  toward  the  Apostolic  See,   because   of   its
  supremacy,  Freemasons  form  conspiracies of the
  darkest and  most  sinister  kind,  in  order  to
  overthrow it.
  To  what  does  Pope Pius VII refer when he makes
  use of the  words  "they  hold  in  contempt  the
  Sacraments  of the Church"; if not to the Masonic
  180 degree of the Rose Croix, which is an  odious
  parody of the Sacrament of the Eucharist? What is
  it that the Pontiff stigmatises when  he  alludes
  to  the  substitution  of  Masonic  sacraments to
  those of the  Church  and  its  ensuing  horrible
  sacrileges  if  not  to  the "black mass" and the
  theft of consecrated hosts which  Masons  of  the
  highest  grades  carry on their person as "Sacred
  Deposit" during the ceremony which  precedes  the
  orgy  in the course of which they will profane It
  in the lowest, voluptuous ignominy?
  Why should we thus administer such blows to  this
  "Anti  Papism"?  It is because it is the unbroken
  chain of Freemasonry and because the Pope is,  on
  earth,  the  representative of Jesus Christ whose
  Cross is trampled upon by Masons, and because  in
  the  course  of their rites, at the 30 initiation
  grade, they throw upside down  the  Pope's  tiara
  and  figuratively  pierce  his heart. Such things
  occur at the initiation of the degree  of  Knight
  Kadosh. Pope Pius VII was well informed.
  + Pope Leo XII 1823-1829
  Soon  after  his  election  as  Pope on March 13,
  1825,  Leo  XII  published  his  Encyclical  "Quo
  Graviora"    condemning    the   Society   called
  Freemasonry,  as  well  as   all   other   Secret
  Societies.  In  this  Encyclical he first of all,
  republished the Constitutions  of  Popes  Clement
  XII,  Benedict XIV and Pius VII. Their appeal had
  remained  fruitless  as  far   as   the   various
  governments  were  concerned  and  Pope  Leo  XII
  "We have endeavored to discover the state, number
  and  influence  of secret societies and We easily
  have been able to acknowledge that, if  only  due
  to  the  number  of  new  sects which have joined
  them, their  audacity  has  increased.  The  Sect
  known  under  the  name  of "L'universitaire" has
  especially   drawn   Our   attention:   It    has
  established  a  center  in  several  Universities
  where young men, instead of receiving the correct
  teaching  are perverted by a few teachers who are
  initiates of certain  Mysteries  which  might  be
  called  Mysteries  of Iniquity and are trained to
  commit crimes."
  Let us note that Pope Leo XII was afraid  of  the
  masonic penetration in public school teaching and
  seemed to foresee the devastation that  the  "One
  School"  would  rapidly  inflict  upon  both  the
  Church and society at large.
  Leo  XII,  in  summing  up  the  harm  caused  by
  clandestine sects, so evident in works written by
  their members, wrote:
  "They have dared publish works  on  Religion  and
  Affairs   of   State,  they  have  exposed  their
  contempt   for   authority,   their   hatred   of
  Sovereignty,  their  attacks against the Divinity
  of Jesus Christ and the very  existence  of  God:
  They  openly  vaunt  their materialism as well as
  their codes  and  statutes  which  explain  their
  plans  and  efforts  in  order  to  overthrow the
  legitimate Heads of State and completely  destroy
  the Church.
  "What  is  definitely  ascertained  is that those
  different sects, despite the diversity  of  their
  names,   are   all   united  and  linked  by  the
  similarity of their infamous plans."
  Thus speaking, Pope Leo XII,  considered  he  was
  accomplishing  his duty as Supreme Pontiff and he
  wrote further, this page, which thoroughly throws
  light on our actual situation:
  "Let  us  use  the words of our predecessor, Pope
  Clement  XIII,  in  his  Encyclical   Letter   of
  September  14, 1758, addressed to all Patriarchs,
  Primates, Archbishops and Bishops of the Catholic
  Church, in which he said:
  'I  entreat  you  to  become  penetrated  of  the
  Strength of the Spirit of God,  His  Intelligence
  and  His Virtue, in order to escape being likened
  to the mute dogs who, unable to bark,  leave  Our
  flocks  exposed to the voracity of beasts roaming
  the  fields.  Let  nothing  stop   Us,   in   the
  fulfillment  of  Our  duty  which  enjoins  Us to
  suffer all kinds of combats for the Glory of  God
  and  the  salvation  of  souls. Let Us constantly
  keep before Our eyes  the  picture  of  HIM  who,
  during  HIS  lifetime,  was  also  exposed to the
  opposition of sinners. If we allow  ourselves  to
  be shaken by the audacity of evildoers it will be
  the end of eposcopal strength, the  end  also  of
  the  sublime  and divine authority of the Church:
  moreover, let us  abandon  even  the  thought  of
  being  Christians if we have reached the point of
  trembling before the threats or  the  traps  laid
  for us by perverts'."
  Leo   XII   ends   this   magnificent  Encyclical
  anathematizing Freemasons and writing:
  "Those men are like those to whom,  according  to
  Saint   John,   the   Apostle,   hospitality  and
  greetings should be denied.  (Second  Epistle  of
  St.  John, V. 10). They are the same men whom our
  Fathers,   without   hesitation,    termed    the
  first-born of the devil."
  + Pope Pius VIII 1829-1830
  Successor  of  Leo  XII,  Pope  Pius VIII, in his
  Encyclical "Traditi", published at  the  time  of
  his  advent  on  May  21,  1829  renewed  all the
  condemnations of his predecessors, repeating as I
  showed  above,  that all Masonic Sects are issued
  from the "Well of Perdition." It  was  under  his
  short  reign as Pontiff that a new Lodge of "Alta
  Vendita" was  discovered  in  Rome,  having  been
  formed  in  1828  and headed by Joseph Picilli as
  Grand Master. Following Leo XII, Pius  VIII  most
  particularly    mentions    the    Sect    called
  "Unitsersitaire," saying:
  "Its aim is to corrupt youth in schools."
  and he applies to Masons those words of Saint Leo
  the Great:
  "Their law is untruth: their god is the devil and
  their cult is turpitude."
  + Pope Gregory XVI 1831-1846
  On August 15, 1832, Gregory XVI,  addressing  all
  the Episcopal Hierarchy of the Catholic world, in
  his Encyclical: "Mirari Vos" wrote:
  "Truly indeed we can say that this  is  the  hour
  granted  to  the  power  of darkness to grind the
  elect as wheat."
  "Evil comes out of Secret  Societies,  bottomless
  abyss of misery, which those conspiring societies
  have dug and in which heresies and sects have, as
  may  be said, vomited as in a privy all they hold
  of licentiousness, sacrilege and blasphemy.
  Just 18 days before his death, on may  13,  1846,
  Pope  Gregory  XVI  put in the hands of Cretineau
  Joly, the documents of the Italian  Alta  Vendita
  which  this author published in 1858 in his book:
  "L'Eglise Romaine en face de la Revolution" ( the
  Roman  Church  facing  the  Revolution). It would
  indeed be of the highest kind of interest to have
  a faithful and complete copy of those manuscripts
  which are, doubtless, in the Vatican.
  + Pope Pius IX 1848-1878
  Let   us  proceed  further.  The  chief  work  of
  Judeo-Masonry  planned  by  Cavour,  Mazzini  and
  Garibaldi   was   reaching  its  goal  under  the
  Pontificate of Pope Pius IX, with the downfall of
  Papal  temporal  power. According to the theories
  of those sectarians of Masonry, such a  loss  was
  sure  to  entail  also  that  of spiritual power;
  accordingly the new Pope fixed the responsibility
  for  the  conspiracy  upon  the  Secret Societies
  when, in the Encyclical following his advent,  he
  wrote on November 9, 1846:
  "Venerable  Brethren, you also are fully aware of
  the monstrous errors and devices employed by  the
  children  of  this  century to pursue a merciless
  war against the  Catholic  Religion,  the  Divine
  Authority  of the Church and its laws in order to
  trample   upon   the   rights   of    both    the
  Ecclesiastical  and  Civil power: such is the aim
  of the guilty machinations against Saint  Peter's
  Roman  See,  upon  which  Christ  established the
  inexpugnable foundation of His  Church.  Such  is
  the  aim  of  those Secret Societies issuing from
  darkness for the eventual ruin  of  Religion  and
  States,  and  which,  on  several occasions, have
  already  been  anathemized  by  preceding   Roman
  Pontiffs in their Apostolical Letters. We confirm
  the importance of such Letters and wish  them  to
  be followed with great care."
  Moreover,  from Gaete, the place of his exile, in
  his allocution: "Quibus Quantisque" addressed  to
  the  Consistory  of  April,  1849,  Pope  Pius IX
  renewed  the  identical   condemnation   in   the
  following terms:
  "Those abominable sects of perdition which are as
  fatally destructive of the salvation of souls  as
  of  the welfare and peace of secular society have
  been   condemned   by   Roman    Pontiffs,    Our
  predecessors;  We  have also personally condemned
  them  Ourselves  in  Our  Encyclical  Letter   of
  November 9, 1846, addressed to all the Bishops of
  the Catholic Church, yet today in virtue  of  Our
  Supreme  Catholic  Authority  -  We,  once again,
  condemn, forbid and anathematize them."
  The  Constitution  against  Freemasonry  and  the
  Secret Societies of which Pope Pius IX speaks are
  those of Popes Clement XII, Benedict XIV, Leo XII
  and  Pius  VIII;  he  adds his own of November 9,
  1846 (Qui Pluribus) in his letter to  Monseigneur
  Darboy,  October 26, 1865, concerning the funeral
  service of Marshall Magnan, Supreme Master of the
  Order   of   Freemasons;   he   adds   also,  his
  communication to the Bishop of Olinda (Brazil) of
  May 29, 1873.
  The renewed sentences of anathema by Pope Pius IX
  strike most particularly the satanism  of  secret
  societies.  In  his  Encyclical  of  November 21,
  1873, the Pope writes of them as the synagogue of
  satan,  and addressing its members he had already
  castigated them (Consistory of December 9,  1854)
  using to this effect, the words of Christ:
  "You  are  of your father the devil and the works
  of your father you will do."
  What are those works?  Satan  is  a  liar  and  a
  murderer  from  the  beginning  of the world, Our
  Lord tells us. Pope Pius IX denounced  the  great
  lie  of  the  so-called White Freemasonry, in his
  Allocution of  September  15,  1865  "Multiplices
  inter" when he says:
  "And  now,  in  order  to  satisfy the desire and
  solicitude of Our Fatherly Heart,  there  remains
  for  US  only to warn and exhort the Faithful who
  might have associated themselves to Sects of this
  kind  to  obey  wiser  inspirations  and to leave
  those  evil  assemblies  so  as  to  avoid  being
  dragged in the abyss of eternal ruin.
  "As  to  all  the  other  faithful, being full of
  solicitude for their souls,  WE  strongly  exhort
  them  to  beware  of the perfidious discourses of
  sectarians who, under a disguise of honesty,  are
  inflamed  by  an ardent hatred of the Religion of
  Christ and of all legitimate authority: they have
  but   one   thought   with   the   sole   aim  of
  exterminating, all Divine and human  rights.  Let
  them  all be fully conscious of the fact that the
  affiliates of such sects are as the  wolves  who,
  as Our Lord predicted, come disguised with sheeps
  hide to devour the whole flock: Let the  faithful
  know  that such affiliates must be numbered among
  those  with  whom  the  Apostle  forbade  us   to
  associate, telling us also to even avoid greeting
  Pope  Pius  IX  equally  denounced  the   satanic
  homicide of Red Masonry in a letter to the Bishop
  of Olinda (Brazil) in the following words:
  "The Satanic spirit of the Sect was  particularly
  evidenced, in the past century, during the course
  of the Revolutions  of  France  which  shook  the
  entire  world.  Such  upheavals  proved  that the
  total  dissolution  of  human  society  could  be
  expected unless the forces of this ultra criminal
  Sect were crushed."
  That letter was dated May 29,  1873;  the  latest
  Masonic  and  Satanic Revolution at that time was
  that which in Italy had resulted in  making  Pope
  Pius  IX  "the prisoner of the Vatican." It seems
  as though the Holy Pontiff was foreseeing such an
  issue  when  he  uttered his complaint concerning
  the  dual  failure  of  the  previous  Pontifical
  condemnations of Masonry. (September 15, 1865).
  First   he   referred   to  the  failure  of  the
  anti-Masonic endeavor thus:
  "However, the Apostolic See's  efforts  have  not
  been  crowned  with  the  success that might have
  been expected. The Masonic Sect of which we speak
  has  been  neither  defeated nor overthrown: just
  the reverse, the Sect has developed  to  such  an
  extent  that,  in these days of great difficulty,
  it shows itself everywhere and with impunity  and
  raises a more audacious countenance."
  Secondly,  the  Pope  outlined the failure of the
  Catholic side, thus:
  "Venerable Brethren,  We  feel  deep  sorrow  and
  bitterness,  when  We see that when, according to
  the Constitutions of Our Predecessors, action  is
  necessary  to  condemn this Masonic Sect, many of
  those whose functions and sacerdotal duty  should
  make  them ultra vigilant and ardent over such an
  important  cause  have,  alas!  shown  themselves
  indifferent  and  as though asleep. If some among
  them believe that  the  Apsotolic  Constitutions,
  published  under sentence of anathema against the
  Occult Sects and their adepts and initiates carry
  no   strength  in  those  countries  where  civil
  authorities  tolerate   them,   they   are   most
  assuredly laboring under a serious mistake."
  "As  you  well  know, Venerable Brethren, We have
  prohibited  and  We  again  today  prohibit   and
  condemn  this false evil doctrine. In fact let Us
  ask whether the Sovereign power 'To feed and lead
  the  universal  flock'  which was vested in Saint
  Peter  by  Jesus  and  through  which  the  Roman
  Pontiffs received the Supreme Authority that they
  must exercise in the Church  depends  from  civil
  power  --  can  such  civil  power  constrain and
  restrain them in anything whatever? Due to  those
  circumstances and fearing that injudicious people
  and above all, youth, might be led astray, and in
  order  that  silence  on  Our  part  might induce
  anyone to  lend  protection  to  error,  We  have
  resolved,   Venerable   Brethren,  to  raise  Our
  Apostolic Voice -- therefore, We  hereby  confirm
  before  you the Constitutions of Our Predecessors
  and in virtue of Our Apostolic Authority We  hold
  up  to  reprobation  and  We condemn this Masonic
  Society and all other societies of the same order
  which,  although  different  in  appearance,  but
  pursuing the  same  aim  against  the  Church  or
  legitimate   Civil  Power  are  constantly  being
  formed. It is Our order that  all  Christians  of
  any  standing  whatsoever,  of  any  rank or high
  appointment and over  all  the  earth  should  be
  informed  that  the  said Societies are forbidden
  and reproved by US, and incur the same  sentences
  and  condemnations as those that are specified in
  the former constitutions of our predecessors."
  Among the reproved  societies  must  be  included
  such  Leagues  as:  the  League  of  Human Rights
  (Ligue des Droits de L'homme) and the League  for
  Education (Ligue de l'Enseistnement ) .
  + Pope Leo XIII 1878-1903
  Pope  Leo  XIII,  successor  of  Pius  IX,   upon
  instructions  from  the Holy Office, dealt, first
  of all, with the Brazilian  Masonic  question  on
  July  2nd, 1878. Then later, addressing the whole
  Church,  on  April  20,  1884,  Pope   Leo   XIII
  published  his  magnificent  Encyclical  "Humanum
  Genus." Taking up once  again  Saint  Augustine's
  pages  concerning the two cities which, on earth,
  constitute the Kingdom of God and the Kingdom  of
  Satan,   the  Pontiff  reviews  the  considerable
  development  which  Freemasonry  has  taken   and
  "Today evil doers all seem allied in a tremendous
  effort inspired by and with the help of a society
  powerfully  organized  and widely spread over the
  world, it is the Society of Freemasons.  In  fact
  those  people  no  longer even try to dissimulate
  their intentions,  but  they  actually  challenge
  each  other's  audacity  in order to assail God's
  August Majesty.
  "It  is  now  publicly  and  overtly  that   they
  undertake  to  ruin  the  Holy  Church,  so as to
  succeed, if  it  is  possible,  in  the  complete
  dispossession  of  Christian  nations  of all the
  gifts they owe to Our Savior Jesus Christ.
  "As a result, in the space of  a  century  and  a
  half,   the  sect  of  the  Freemasons  has  made
  incredible progress. Making use at the same  time
  of  audacity and cunning, Masonry has invaded all
  the ranks of social hierarchy, and in the  modern
  States  it  has  begun  to seize a power which is
  almost equivalent to Sovereignty.
  In  order   to   strengthen   those   enlightened
  observations, Leo XIII refers to his predecessors
  and writes:
  "This peril was denounced for the first  time  by
  Pope  Clement  XII  in 1738, and the Constitution
  promulgated  by  that  Pope   was   renewed   and
  confirmed  by  Benedict XIV; Pius VII followed in
  the footsteps of those Pontiffs, and Pope Leo XII
  including  in  his  Apostolical Constitution 'Quo
  Graviora'  all  the  deeds  and  decrees  of  the
  preceding  Popes  on  that  subject, ratified and
  confirmed them for ever. Popes Pius VIII, Gregory
  XVI  and  on several occasions Pope Pius IX spoke
  in the same manner."
  Whereas  he  approved  and  confirmed   all   the
  Pontifical     condemnations    issued    against
  Freemasonry from those of Clement  XII  in  1738,
  Leo  XIII  moreover more amply exposed the reason
  for such actions and  gives  as  his  motive  for
  acting thus:
  "It  is because of the fundamental aim and spirit
  of the Masonic sect which  has  been  exposed  in
  full  light  through the evident manifestation of
  its  deeds,  the  acquired   knowledge   of   its
  principles,   its   rules,   its  rites  and  its
  commentaries  to  which  have  been   added   the
  testimonies of its own adepts . . .
  "It  is  exceedingly  important  to  bring to the
  notice of  all  peoples  to  what  extent  events
  confirmed  the  wisdom of our predecessors. Their
  foresight and paternal soticitude did not  always
  attain  the desired success. This failure must be
  ascribed  on  the  one   hand   either   to   the
  dissimulation  and cunning of men members of this
  pernicious sect or, on the  other  hand,  to  the
  imprudent  lightness  of  character  of those who
  should, however, have been highly  interested  in
  watching it attentively"
  Leo XIII refers frequently to the hypocrisy which
  is the basis of "White Freemasonry" and  mentions
  the  fatal  evolution  of  its revolutionary aims
  which turns it into "Red Masonry."
  Upon being attentively  studied  this  Encyclical
  most   strikingly   reveals  the  triple  Masonic
  character, namely that its aims are:
  *  Counter-Morality
  *  Counter-State
  *  Counter-Church
  1. Counter Morality
  The  Pope  defines  the  Masonic point of view on
  morality thus:
  "The only thing which has found grace before  the
  members  of  the  Masonic  sect and in which they
  request that  youth  should  receive  the  proper
  teaching  is  what  they  call  'Civic Morality',
  independent morality,  free  morality,  in  other
  words  a morality in which religious beliefs find
  no room. This morality is  insufficient  and  its
  effects are its own condemnation.
  "Furthermore there have been found in Freemasonry
  several sectarians who have maintained  that  all
  means are to be systematically used, in order, to
  saturate the multitudes with  licentiousness  and
  vices;  because  in  their  opinion peoples would
  naturally fall into their hands  and  become  the
  instruments  needed  for  the  accomplishment  of
  their  most   audacious   evil   projects.   Such
  counter-morality  is  that  of civil marriage, of
  divorce,  of  free  love   and   of   irreligious
  education for youth.
  "It  aims at the complete destruction of the main
  foundations of justice and honesty. In  this  way
  Freemasons  make  themselves  the  auxiliaries of
  those who wish that, like an animal, man  had  no
  other  rule  of  conduct  than his own desires --
  Such a scheme can only dishonor  human  kind  and
  ignominiously cast him into perdition."
  2. Counter State
  On  this  subject  Pope  Leo  XIII  foresaw  that
  Freemasonry,   "the   power   which   is   almost
  equivalent  to  sovereignty,"  and  which already
  occupied the place of "State within  the  State,"
  would  soon form the Super State. It is from such
  a situation that there  was  issued  the  Masonic
  dogma  of separation of Church and State; thence,
  issued also the anti-religious laws which Brother
  Bethmont,  member of Parliament of the department
  of Charente Inf'erieure and former  President  of
  the  Cour  Des Comptes, in 1878 was explaining to
  Monseigneur Pie, Bishop of Poitiers. The  prelate
  then  said  to  him:  "Sir, I believe you want to
  inaugurate anew the  fight  against  the  Church;
  have  you  any  hope  of  succeeding there, where
  Nero,  Julian  the  Apostate   and   your   great
  ancestors  of  the 1793 French Revolution failed?
  -- He replied:
  "Your Eminence, at the risk of seeming too  bold,
  I will say that those ,you have mentioned did not
  quite know how to act. We shall do  much  better.
  Violence  against  the  Church  leads nowhere, we
  shall  use  other  means.  We  shall  organize  a
  persecution which shall be both clever and legal;
  we shall surround the Church with  a  network  of
  laws, decrees and ordinances which will stifle it
  without shedding one drop of blood."
  Who, may I ask, is  making  those  closely  woven
  nets  of laws, decrees and ordinances? The State,
  of  course,  but  it  is  a  Masonic  State,   an
  irreligious  State  under  the  power  of a Super
  State which at the present moment is the Ruler of
  the World.
  When  Leo  XIII adjures his Venerable Brethren to
  unite their zeal to his own efforts in order, "to
  annihilate  the  impure  contagion  of the poison
  which flows in the veins  of  human  society  and
  causes  a state of total infection," it is with a
  feeling of fear that one brings to mind the death
  sentence   pronounced  against  humanity  in  the
  "Protocols of the Elders of Zion."
  "When we introduced into the State  organism  the
  poison   of   Liberalism   its   whole  political
  complexion underwent a change. States  have  been
  seized  with  a mortal illness -- bloodpoisoning.
  All that remains is to await  the  end  of  their
  death agony."
  Thus,  while  States  are  gravitating  toward  a
  Universal Republic, the  Super-State  becomes  an
  infrangible  dictature,  which  according  to its
  will grinds them down or else thoroughly  infects
  them; that Super State is called Judeo-Masonry.
  3. Counter Church
  Hence the supreme aim of the Sect, as it has been
  pointed out by the Popes, is none other than  the
  complete   destruction  of  the  Church  and  the
  Papacy. Pope Leo  XIII  persistently  underscores
  this rigorous consequence and says:
  "Since the proper and very special mission of the
  Catholic Church consists in the  safeguarding  of
  the   incorruptible   purity   of  the  doctrines
  revealed by God, as well as that  of  established
  authority  for their teaching and other God given
  help  for  the  salvation  of  mankind;   it   is
  inevitable  that  the  major  antagonism and most
  violent attacks of the Sect  should  be  directed
  against  the  Church . . . Therefore, even at the
  cost of  a  lengthy  and  opinionated  labor  the
  Sect's   purpose  is  to  reduce  to  naught  the
  teaching, and authority of the Church  among  the
  civilian population. . .
  "The   enmity   of  the  sectarians  against  the
  Apostolic See of the Roman Pontiff has  increased
  its intensity . . . until now the evil doers have
  reached the aim which had, for a long  time  that
  of their evil designs, namely, their proclamation
  that the moment has come to  suppress  the  Roman
  Pontiff's  sacred power and to completely destroy
  this Papacy which was divinely instituted."
  Lastly,  Leo  XIII  concludes  in  unmasking  the
  Satanism of Judeo-Masonry:
  "The   facts   which   we   have  reviewed  throw
  sufficient  light  upon  inner  constitution   of
  Freemasons  and  show  clearly  the road they are
  following in order to  reach  their  goal.  Their
  chief  dogmas  are  so  completely and manifestly
  opposed to sane reason that it  is  difficult  to
  imagine  deeper  perversion. In reality is it not
  the peak of madness and  of  the  most  audacious
  impiety  to  be  so  presumptuous  as  to want to
  destroy the religion and the  Church  created  by
  God   Himself:   and  assured  of  His  perpetual
  protection; and after 18  centuries  to  want  to
  replace  it  with the customs and institutions of
  "Still no less  horrible  nor  easy  to  bear  to
  witness  the repudiation of those gifts which, in
  His  mercy,  Jesus  Christ  bestowed   first   on
  individuals, then to human beings grouped both in
  families and in  nations.  Even  the  enemies  of
  Christianism  acknowledge  the  supreme  value of
  those gifts.
  "There is no denying that  in  this  foolish  and
  criminal  plan  it  is  easy  to  understand  the
  implacable hatred and passion for  revenge  which
  animate  Satan  toward Jesus Christ. We refuse to
  follow the dictates of  such  iniquitous  masters
  that  bear  the  names  of  Satan and of all evil
  + Pope Benedict XV 1914-1922
  War, Armistice, Peace, all took place  under  the
  Pontificate  of  Benedict  XV. In connection with
  our own viewpoint on Judeo-Masonry, we must point
  out  the  Papal  condemnation of Ludovic Keller's
  book: "Le Basi Spirituali Della Massone-Ria E  La
  Vita   Publica"  (The  spiritual  foundations  of
  Masonry and the life of the people) published  in
  1915.  That  book was condemned on June 15, 1916.
  Moreover, the letter from the Holy Office of  the
  Vatican  to  the  Ordinaries  called  upon  their
  vigilant  attention  because   of   special   new
  machinations  being directed against the Faith by
  anti-Catholic   associations.   The   association
  particularly  indicated  is  the  Y.M.C.A. (Young
  Men's  Christian  Association)  which   on   many
  occasions   has   been   singled   out  as  being
  fundamentally    Masonic    in     the     "Revue
  Internationale Des Societes Secretes." The letter
  from  the  Holy  Office  of  November   5,   1920
  particularly   mentions  that  according  to  its
  declaration of principles, the Y.M.C.A.  "Intends
  to  purify and spread a more perfect knowledge of
  real life placing itself above all  churches  and
  outside   and   religious   jurisdiction."   Such
  anticlerical transcendentalism is none other than
  the manifestation of Judeo-Masonry.
  Furthermore,  on  the  inside  cover of our Revue
  Internationale   Des   Societes   Secretes    are
  reproduced the two letters addressed to me by the
  Holy  See,  which  are  an  affirmation  of   the
  viewpoint which Pope Benedict XV held on Masonry,
  the   same   viewpoint    carrying    the    same
  condemnations    already    pronounced   by   his
  predecessors since Pope Clement XII.
  The two letters from  the  Vatican  are  herewith
  1. From Pope Benedict XV to Monseigneur Jouin:
  "Beloved  Son-Greetings  and  Apostolic Blessing.
  The eminent virtues which, in the course of  your
  long  sacerdotal career, you have shown with such
  resplendent light added to the high consideration
  in  which  you are held by Our Venerable Brother,
  Jauvier Granito di Belmonte, Cardinal of the Holy
  Roman  Church,  Bishop  of Albano, as also by the
  Cardinal Archbishop of Paris, have  prompted  Our
  decision to honor you with a great homage.
  "We  do  know that you fulfill the obligations of
  your  sacred  ministry  in  the  most   exemplary
  manner;  that you have the most ardent solicitude
  for the eternal salvation  of  the  faithful  and
  that  with  constancy and courage you have upheld
  the rights of the Catholic  Church  --  and  have
  done  so  even at the peril of your own life. You
  have worked against the enemies of  religion  and
  We  know that you spare neither work nor expenses
  to spread among the people your  great  works  on
  those questions . . ."
  2.  From  His  Eminence  Cardinal Gasparri (State
  Secretary of His Holiness) to  Monseigneur  Jouin
  on June 20, 1919.
  "The   Sovereign   Pontiff   with   his  paternal
  benevolence has accepted the homage of  your  new
  study  on  'La  guerre  Maconnique'  (The Masonic
  "It is with unerring judgment that  in  the  work
  which you have undertaken, you have endeavored to
  project light,  by  means  of  documentation  and
  irrefutable    proofs,   upon   the   inept   and
  essentially     anti-Catholic     doctrine     of
  Freemasonry, a doctrine issued from deism born of
  the Reformation, a doctrine which, as it is today
  clearly evident, leads fatally to the very denial
  of  God,  to  social  atheism,   to   irreligious
  teaching  and  impiety and is greatly detrimental
  to  nations;  it  aims  at  removing  from  every
  association  every  trace  of  religion and every
  church mediation.
  "Above all, in spite of all lies which oftentimes
  deceive   the   Catholics  themselves,  you  have
  carefully and most particularly clearly shown the
  identity  of  Freemasonry  evident everywhere and
  always, and the continuity of the  plans  set  by
  the   Sects   and  whose  master  design  is  the
  destruction of the Catholic Church.
  "His Holiness takes  pleasure  in  congratulating
  you  and  encouraging  your  work whose influence
  can, indeed, be so fruitful. It  can  induce  the
  faithful  to  be  vigilant and help them to fight
  efficaciously against everything tending  to  the
  destruction  of  the  social  order as well as of
  "As evidence of the celestial gifts bestowed upon
  you   and   as   a   testimony  of  his  paternal
  benevolence, the  Holy  Father,  from  his  heart
  bestows upon you the Apostolic Blessing.
  "Thanking,  you  also  for  the copy of your book
  which  you  graciously  sent  me,  and  with   my
  personal  congratulations, I pray you to believe,
  Monseigneur, in  the  assurance  of  my  complete
  + Pope Pius X 1903-1914
  Pope St. Pius X 1903-1914
  Pope Pius X, successor of Pope Leo XIII, gave his
  greater attention to Sillonisme and to Modernism,
  but,   nevertheless   he   did   not  forget  the
  destructive work of Freemasonry. He requested the
  Polish   people   to  abstain  from  joining  any
  conspiracy schemed by the malevolent Sects.
  Later he extended words  of  consolation  to  the
  faithful of France in the following words:
  "And  now it is to you, Catholics of France, that
  We speak; may Our words reach you as a  testimony
  of  the  tender  feeling  of  Our  love  for your
  country and as a consolation in the midst of  the
  terrible  calamities through which you must pass.
  You are well aware of the  self-assigned  aim  of
  the  impious  sectarians  who hare subjugated you
  under  their  yoke.  With  cynic  audacity   they
  themselves proclaimed their aim which was 'Uproot
  Catholicism in France.' They  want  to  extirpate
  from your hearts, namely its last root, the Faith
  which covered  your  ancestors  with  glory;  the
  Faith  which  brought prosperity and greatness to
  your Fatherland amidst  all  other  nations;  the
  Faith  which will be your support in the hours of
  your tribulation, which maintains calm and  peace
  in  your  homes  and opens for you the way toward
  eternal happiness. It is  this  Faith  which  you
  yourselves feel has to be defended."
  Lastly,  Pius  X  loudly  affirms  that as he has
  lifted his voice:
  "It is  not  the  Church  who  first  raised  the
  standard,  she  did  so only because war had been
  declared against her. For the last 25  years  she
  has  only  had  to bear the struggle. Such is the
  Truth. Declarations, a thousand  times  published
  and  republished  in the Press, in congresses, in
  Masonic  conventions,  in  the  very   halls   of
  Parliament,  are proof in themselves that attacks
  against the Church have  been  led  progressively
  and  systematically.  Such facts cannot be denied
  and against them mere words cannot prevail . . ."
  (From letter of Pope Pius X to France, January 6,
  Fundamentally just as did his predecessors,  Pius
  X  denounces the maneuvers of the Counter-Church,
  moreover in his Letter  of  condemnation  of  the
  SILLON,  he  deliberately  designates the Masonic
  lodges in the following terms:
  "We all but too well know the  dens  of  darkness
  wherein those pernicious doctrines are elaborated
  . . . Clear minds should not be seduced by them."
  (From  letter  of Pius X to the French Episcopate
  August 25, 1910.)
  + Pope Pius XI 1922
  For  the  first  time  the  word "Laicism" (which
  means irreligious teaching) is to be found  in  a
  Pontifical  document;  it is the fatal and sought
  for result of both the Masonic doctrine  and  its
  direct  action. This fact allows me to add to the
  list of all the Sovereign Pontiffs who  denounced
  and  condemned  Judeo-Masonry;  the  name  of our
  present Pope, Pius XI, in his Encyclical "Maximam
  grasissimamque"  of  July 18, 1924, the Pope most
  clearly has lifted his  voice  against  "Laicism"
  (irreligious teaching) in the following terms:
  "Whatetier   Pius  X  did  condemn,  We  likewise
  condemn it. Every time that  the  word  'Laicite'
  (irreligious   teaching)  is  used  to  convey  a
  feeling or an intention contrary  or  foreign  to
  God  or religion, We condemn it. We fully reprove
  this 'Laicism' and We openly declare that it must
  be reproved."
  In my own case, during the private audience which
  on  November  16,  1923,  he  granted   me,   His
  Holiness,  Pius XI, asked me to continue my fight
  against Freemasonry because, said he:
  "Masonry is our mortal enemy."
  Later, as  I  was  recollecting  the  kind  words
  addressed to me by Pope Benedict XV in the decree
  "With constancy and courage you have  upheld  the
  rights  of  the  Catholic Church and have done so
  even at the peril of your life." and adding  that
  so  far  I  had  not  yet  become  the  victim of
  Freemasons, His Holiness replied  in  a  paternal
  "Did  not  Saint  Augustine, who is the patron of
  your parish in Paris, speak of the martyrs of the
  pen?  (The  Parish of which Monseigneur Jouin was
  head for many  years  and  until  his  death  was
  called Saint Augustine.)
  Such  a  denunciation of "Laicism" as well as the
  encouragement given  me  to  continue  the  fight
  against    Masonry    confirm    the   Pontifical
  condemnations pronounced since Pope Clement  XII;
  it  also  follows  the inspired words of Pope Leo
  "In the realm of spiritual salvation, there is no
  middle  way:  one  either  follows  the  road  to
  perdition or else fights  without  limit  to  the
  very end."
  Therefore,  our  conclusion  is contained in just
  two words: unity of  purpose  and  viewpoint  and
  unity  of  action shown by the Sovereign Pontiffs
  in regard to Freemasonry. Fifteen years after the
  publication  of  the Constitutions of Anderson in
  1723,  there  appeared   the   constitution   "In
  Eminenti"  of Pope Clement XII April 28, 1738. Is
  there in the history of the Church a heresy which
  met  with such a swift condemnation? Another fact
  equally remarkable is that all  the  Popes  based
  their  ulterior  condemnations on this Pontifical
  act of Clement XII showing clearly that there was
  but one Voice, but one cry of disapproval when it
  came to pronounce  the  anathema  against  Secret
  Societies  and  striking  their  members with the
  most rigorous censure which the Church can apply.
  Even though incomplete, here follows  a  list  of
  documents as proof of the above:
    * Clement XII: In Eminenti -- April 28, 1738
    * Benedict XIV: Providas -- March 16, 1751
    * Clement XIII: A. Quodie -- Sept. 14, 1758
    * Clement XIII: Ut Primum -- Sept. 3, 1759
    * Clement XIII: Christianae Reipublicae Salus
      -- Nov. 25, 1766
    * Pius VI: Inscrutabile -- Dec. 25, 1775
    * Pius VII: Ecclesiam a Jesu Christo -- Sept.
      14, 1820
    * Leo XII: Quo Graviora -- March 13, 1826
    * Pius VII: Traditi -- May 21, 1829
    * Gregory XVI: Mirari Vos -- Aug. 15, 1832
    * Pius IX: Qui Pluribus -- Nov 9, 1846
    * Pius IX: Omnibus Quantisque -- April 20,
    * Pius IX: Multiplices Inter -- Sept 25,
    * Leo XIII: Humanum Genus -- April 20, 1884
    * Leo XIII: Letter to Italian Episcopate --
      Dec. 8, 1892
    * Leo XIII: Letter to the Italian People --
      Dec. 8, 1892
    * Pius X: Vehementer -- Feb 11, 1906
    * Pius X: Letter to France -- Jan 6, 1907
  Add to this the condemnation of the  Y.M.C.A.  by
  the Holy Office, Nov. 5, 1920 and also the decree
  through which I was made  a  Prelate,  signed  by
  Pope  Benedict  XV,  followed  by  the  Letter of
  Cardinal  Gasparri,  praising  my  book:   Guerre
  Maconnique (Masonic War). Then again remember the
  Encyclical  of  His  Holiness  Pius  XI   against
  irreligious   teaching   in   schools   and   his
  encouragement    to    me    to    continue    my
  anti-Judeo-Masonic  fight, and you will thus have
  before you a chain whose  links  are  inseparably
  It is this unity of viewpoints which demonstrates
  that the Papacy has but  one  voice  and  is  the
  judiciary power of those Societies which actually
  form the whole of Judeo-Masonry.
  As to the unity of action of  the  Popes,  it  is
  also worthy of attention. Ever since 1738 all the
  Sovereign Pontiffs  have  denounced,  stigmatized
  and  condemned  the  great  harlot  of  the  20th
  century, that "Well  of  Perdition,"  "Bottomless
  Abyss of Misery which was dug by those conspiring
  Societies in which the Heresies and  Sects  have,
  it may be said, vomited as in a privy, everything
  they held  in  their  insides  of  Sacrilige  and
  Blasphemy." (Leo XIII.)
  Ever   since  1738  all  the  Sovereign  Pontiffs
  denounced, stigmatized and condemned the enemy of
  the  State  which,  according  to  Pope Leo XIII,
  already during  the  past  century,  possessed  a
  power  almost  equivalent  to  "Sovereignty"  and
  which, toady, calls itself the Super-State.
  Ever  since  1738  all  the  Sovereign   Pontiffs
  denounced, stigmatized and condemned the enemy of
  the Church, the Counter-Church, whose  proclaimed
  aim is to:
  "Decatholicize the world"
  It seeks to rebuild on the ashes of the Christian
  civilization the pagan barbarism, and to build on
  the  ruins  of the Papacy the world domination of
  Israel; furthermore, as a sign of its victory, it
  wants  to  erect  over  the  overthrown throne of
  Jesus Christ the very throne of Satan.
  Ever  since  1738  all  the  Sovereign   Pontiffs
  denounced,  stigmatized  and  condemned  what has
  hitherto   become   the   world   evolution    of
  Judeo-Masonry  which,  now, on earth, admits that
  it has but one adversary,  namely,  the  Catholic
  Church, whose agony it is now witnessing.
  However,    the   Popes   equally   deplore   the
  indifference of those Catholics who fail  to  see
  Their   silent  tears  and  fail  to  heed  Their
  heart-rending appeals; they constitute a race  of
  people  indifferent  and asleep, a string of Mute
  Hounds, afraid, of whom Pope Clement XIII, said:
  "If We  allow  ourselves  to  be  shaken  by  the
  audacity   of   evil-doers,  then  the  Episcopal
  strength is come  to  an  end;  the  sublime  and
  divine  authority of the Church no longer exists;
  it is then useless  to  look  upon  ourselves  as
  Christians  if  we have sunk so low as to tremble
  before  the  threats  of  the   snares   of   the
  Being  anxious  to  be  neither  indifferent  nor
  asleep, nor again a  Mute  Hound  in  the  Church
  Militant,  but to be on the contrary, even though
  from afar, linked to the dogs of  the  Lord,  the
  "Dominicani"  of  whom  in the 13th century spoke
  Jeanne d'Aza, mother of Saint Dominique,  at  the
  time   of   the   Church   struggle  against  the
  Albigenses; in order also not to be counted among
  the  cowards  who  flee  from the battlefield and
  whom, when in 1870  the  Germans  invaded  France
  Saint  Bernadette  said:  "I  fear  only  the bad
  Christians" for such reasons I founded the "Revue
  Internationale  Des  Societes Secretes." I, today
  also want to thank all the companions who in this
  struggle,  both in work and in prayer have allied
  themselves  with  my   humble   but   persevering
  Yes!  let  us of the league of St. Michael remain
  united in prayer for the conversion of Masons and
  Jews.  Let us be united in our efforts to respond
  to  the  concordant  voice   of   the   Sovereign
  Pontiffs,  in  order to destroy, inasmuch as lies
  in our  possibilities,  the  Judeo-Masonic  Sect.
  When  will this be? In God's own hour which seems
  to be very close. What can be done  against  this
  world power? Everything!
  In  the strength of Him who bears on His shoulder
  the  invincible  sign  of  His  power;   we   can
  accomplish  everything  in  the  power of Him who
  Christianized the world and which,  in  the  end,
  Judeo-Masonry,  can  neither  de-Christianize nor
  re-Paganize -- Yes! we can accomplish  everything
  in  the  strength  of Him whose Holy Sepulchre or
  the  dome  of  Saint  Peter  in  Rome  cannot  be
  darkened  by  the  shadows  cast  by  the Masonic
  Lodges  --  the  Kabbalistic  mysteries  of   the
  Ghettos  will  not  alter  a  single  iota of the
  Gospel or of the Credo; the accumulation of  gold
  in  the  hands  of high finance will ever fail to
  buy the conscience of Christ's representative  in
  the Vatican.
  Vade  Satana!  Get  thee behind me Satan with thy
  legions of  rebellious  angels,  with  thy  early
  workers of iniquity the Judeo-Masons!
  Christ is near! To-day He comes! Tomorrow He will
  be here!
  Let us therefore say, according to the  words  of
  Saint  Augustine:  Dicamus In Fide, let us say in
  the full energy of our faith; Dicamus In Spe: let
  us  say  in  the  strength  of  our hope; Dicamus
  Flagfantissima  Caritate:  Let  us  say  in   the
  burning fervor of our charity:
  If  God  is  with us, who can prevail against us?
  (Si Deus Pro Nobis, Quis Contra Nos?)
  God is with us in this fight, which is our fight,
  the fight of the Papacy against Judeo-Masonry.



"Thus, while States are gravitating toward a Universal Republic, the Super-State becomes an infrangible dictature, which according to its will grinds them down or else thoroughly infects them; that Super State is called JUDEO-MASONRY."

"When the State refuses to give God what belongs to God, by a necessary consequence, it refuses to give to its citizens that to which they, as men, have a right. For whether one likes it or not, the true rights of man spring precisely from his duties towards God. -- Pope Leo XIII
