Baron Yves Marsaudon: A High Ranking Freemason in the Order of Malta

Yves Marsaudon (1899-1985), High-Level Mason and Minister of the Order of Malta.
Edit: doing some housework as it were, and posting up some articles whose information didn't seem to get much circulation beyond Infowars and Alex Jones' resident Freemason, Leo Zagami., who discussed Msgr. Weninger. It sure looks like someone publicly declared that Masons aren't excommunicated and no one said anything about it after, at least not anyone in authority.

Update: Well, Complicit Clergy had an article up on him in February when this first came out., and this from a normie agglomerator site run by "academics".

by Father Paolo M. Siano FFI*

On 2 February 2017, the journalist Riccardo Cascioli summed up the contents of a letter from Pope Francis sent to Raymond Cardinal Burke, Patron of the Sovereign Order of Malta, on 1 December. In it, he issued "a call for vigilance against the affiliation of Members of the Order of Malta to Freemasonry and to take decisive action to stop those responsible for the distribution of contraceptives through aid programmes in poor countries." It seems that the letter does not speak directly of "freemasonry", but of "associations, movements and organizations that are against the Catholic faith or of relativistic imprint". Cascioli would do well to see at least an implicit reference to Freemasonry.

I was asked: "How is it possible for a Freemason to enter the Order of Malta?" I must confess that I have no further knowledge of the current situation in the Order of Malta, to which I wish in any case that they prosper in complete Catholic fidelity to their religious and charitable charism.

What I know with certainty, however, is that, in the distant past, some cases of dual membership in the Order of Malta and Freemasonry have become known. Probably the most sensational case was that of Baron Yves Marie Antoine Marsaudon (1899-1985). Important details to get to know his life and his thinking, are present in his books "L'Ocuménisme vu par un Franc-Maon de Tradition" (The Ecumenism from the Point of View of a Traditional Freemason, Editions Vitiano, Paris 1964), "De l'initiation masonnique l'orthodoxie chrétienne" (From the Masonic Initiation to Christian Orthodoxy, Dervy, Paris 1965) and "Souvenirs et Réflexions. Un Haut Dignitarie de la Franc-Ma'onnerie révéle des secrets" (Memories and Thoughts. A high dignitary of Freemasonry reveals secrets, Editions Vitiano, Paris 1976).
Growing up in a Catholic family, Yves is only vaguely a believer and at the age of 16-17 and falls into a philosophical and religious indifference. In 1926 he was accepted as a Freemason in the Grand Lodge of France (GLDF). At the time, he was a young entrepreneur who worked in trade with South America. In 1936 he received the 33rd and highest degree of the Old and Adopted Scottish Rite (AASR). In 1937 he became a member of the High Council, the highest authority of the AASR in France, to which the Grand Lodge is attached.

As a high-level Freemason, he turned his back on the Catholic Church and converted to the Orthodox Church in France. He described himself as a Freemason of the (Freemasonic) "tradition" and as a "spiritualist".

In 1964, the High Council of the Old and Adopted Scottish Rite (AASR) split. A group of 33rd-degree freemasons established a new High Council of the AASR for France and joined the Grande Loge Nationale Francoise (GLNF), the only Masonic obedience recognized as regular by English Freemasonry. Marsaudon 33° belongs to this group that crosses. Since this year, he has been a member of the new High Council of the GLNF. He is even (perhaps 1976 or earlier) appointed Sovereign Grand Comtur, the highest honorary officer of the High Council of the Old and Adopted Scottish Rite.

In 1946, at a time when Marsaudon was already a 33rd-grade Freemason, he joined the Sovereign Order of Malta. As Magistral Grand Cross Knight in gremio religionis, he was directly under the leadership of the Order in Rome. In the same year he became Extraordinary Envoy and Plenipotentiary Minister of the Order in France. He maintained close diplomatic contacts with the then Apostolic Nuncio in Paris, Monsignor Angelo Roncalli, the future Pope John XXIII and Saint. In 1951, after criticism of the "integralist party", as the staunch Freemason Marsaudon calls his critics of the Roman Curia, he resigned from his post as Plenipotentiary Minister of the Order of Malta, but remained its Emeritus Minister. This at least until 1976, the year in which his "memoirs" appear in book form (perhaps longer). In this book he revealed that he was not the only Masonic Knight of Malta.
Die Ökumene aus der Sicht eines Freimaurers
Ecumenism from the point of view of a Freemason

Let's take a quick look at some of the ideas of the Freemason Marsaudon, which he presented in his books. In the aforementioned book of 1976, he describes himself as a pupil of the 33rd-grade Freemason, Oswald Wirth, whom he calls a "Great Initiate". Wirth (1860-1943) is an occult Freemason who had moved from the Grand Orient of France to the Grand Lodge (GLDF). In the same book by Marsaudon 33° there are various esoteric images typical of the books of his master Wirth. Marsaudon is convinced of the Templar and Rosicrucian roots of modern Freemasonry and claims that the Rosicrucian is "Christian" and "cabalistic". In his 1964 book, he praises the thinking of Teilhard de Chardin (p. 60).
Marsaudon writes that the Church is a "prisoner of dogmatic texts". To underline this assertion, he describes the situation of a remarried divorcee in a way that is as exaggerated as it is erroneous, but sentimental: "he must not be admitted to the sacraments and will die without absolution, unless he denies the mother of his children ...". Therefore Marsaudon justifies the divorce and cites as positive examples the Protestant "churches" and the Orthodox Church, while in the Roman Church he sees only dogmatic and inhuman intransigence (p. 63f).

Marsaudon despises the primacy of the Roman Pope and shares the view of André Gide (1869–1951), an aberrosexual Nobel prize winner from Calvinist upbringing: "What counts is not to be Catholic or Protestant, but simply to be a Christian".

Marsaudon makes fun of certain dogmas, such as Hell (p. 65). He rejects the dogma of the Immaculate Conception, as well as the mediation role of Mary and the infallibility of the Pope in matters of faith and morality (p. 85f)

Marsaudon sees ecumenism in the Masonic sense as over-dogmatic and relativistic. As late as 1976, he wished that Roman Catholicity would open up to the equality of all Christian denominations ... Marsaudon asserts that "the Orthodox Church is closest to the Gospels, while the Vatican must bow to Freemasonry and take a step towards rapprochement, not the other way around" (p. 363).

Marsaudon considers himself tolerant of philosophical and metaphysical questions. He lets a certain panvitalism seep through when he declares to respect every way of life (environment, oceans, plants, animals) because "life is one". He is against abortion, but accepts contraception. He also reveals esoteric convictions when he claims that the animals are our "unknown superiors", a term typical of the hierarchy of the esoteric movement of Martinism, and that "we must reclaim paradise on earth" (p. 380ff).

The Marsaudon case is indeed irritating: a 33rd-degree Freemason is granted admission to the Order of Malta and given a high dignity that guarantees him diplomatic immunity, while at the same time advocating divorce (and implicitly advocating Communion for the remarried divorcees, until he eventually even transitions to the Orthodox Church) and advocates contraception, which is anti-Catholic and anti-Roman , and who acts as an anti-dogmatic and relativistic ecumenist as well as an esoteric animal and environmentalist.

Whether there is anyone in the Order of Malta today who shares all or part of Marsaudon's heretical beliefs, I do not know. But even if this were the case, I would not be surprised by the current ecclesial situation.

*Father Paolo M. Siano is a priest of the Order of the Franciscans of immaculates. He is considered one of the best Catholic connoisseurs of Freemasonry.

Order of Malta Pushing Gay Heroes in Comics

After the coup, the Order of Malta is rebuilt into a humanitarian NGO, pays homage to political correctness and, just before the 1,000 year anniversary of its founding, heads into an identity crisis.
(Rome) In the Sovereign Order of Malta in early 2017, a coup against the reigning Grand Master and Prince took place. Pope Francis was not its author, but its executor. The knights, who since then have exercised their power in the Order with papal backing, have issued a new order: it is no longer for the defense of Christianity, if necessary with the sword, or with the hospice. This is what the Order has done so far. Shortly before the completion of its millennial existence, a new order was issued. It reads: Political correctness on the way to becoming a humanitarian NGO - and a serious identity crisis.

"There was a time, about three years ago, when the Order of Malta still proved to be scandalized by the news that the Order was involved in international humanitarian projects in Myanmar, Kenya and South Sudan where contraceptives are distributed although this is in open contradiction to the social doctrine of the Church. "

Mauro Faverzani (Corrispondenza Romana), from whom these lines originate, places them in opposition to the current religious situation. In 2016, the leadership was still in a state of outrage, but it did not end well. The then Grand Master, the Briton Fra Matthew Festing, who resisted the creeping reorientation of the Order, was deposed by Pope Francis. Faverzani puts it a bit more precise and painful for the Church: the Grand Master was "put on one leg".

Those responsible for the new course, especially the Grand Chancellor of the Order, the German Baron Albrecht von Boeselager, remained in the saddle thanks to their good contacts with the Vatican Secretariat of State and with Pope Francis. For a year now, the Order has again a Grand Master and Prince. The shift in power towards the Chancellor and the "German group" in the Order did not change that.

The new agenda: migration

The new slogans with which the Order is making public today are: migration, multiculturalism and multi-religiosity. Slogans that are popular in the current Vatican. So it is not surprising that Chancellor Boeselager praised UNO's controversial Global Compact for Migration as "an excellent instrument for managing the phenomenon of migration". The Holy See had sent none other than Cardinal Secretary of State Pietro Parolin to Marrakech to offer the papal blessing to the program of  new migration.

The "new" Order of Malta fulfills its agenda with German thoroughness and is also involved in the attacks against the Italian government, in which the Lega of Interior Minister Matteo Salvini sets new accents against uncontrolled mass immigration. Salvini announced last Sunday after the seventh election victory of his party within a year in a row: "And now we bring back Europe". Francis, on the other hand, sympathizes with the other side, who are involved in the project of the Eurocrats, which is also reflected in the Order of Malta

“Serious problems implied in the UN text, especially the threat to the freedom of the press and expression, have already become visible. Criticizing immigration will be banned in the EU and prosecuted by law. And with hard penalties. The Global Compact itself, " says Faverzani. "But the Maltese Knights either do not seem to know that, or they do not care, because they so enthusiastically and unconditionally agree with the project."

The new ways and the answer of Benedict XVI.

Grand Chancellor Boeselager announced another mega-front in which the oldest Catholic Order of Knights intends to play an active role: multi-religiosity and religious pluralism. In order to follow the words, deeds immediately follow, the Order will hold a conference in Rome "with representatives of different religions". Of course, she will also deal with the Order's humanitarian mission. The danger is obvious: Even in the course of the conflict between Grandmaster Festing and Grand Chancellor Boeselager had been warned that the "German group" wants to rebuild the Order into one of many, identityless humanitarian NGOs, which is little more than a compliant arm of left-liberal UN would be.

Benedict XVI. writes in his encyclical Deus Caritas Est of December 2005:

"The increasing number of organizations striving for man in his various needs is ultimately explained by the fact that the imperative of charity is inscribed by the Creator in the nature of man himself. But it is also a result of the presence of Christianity in the world, which repeatedly awakens and brings to life this often deeply darkened imperative. [...] It is all the more important that ecclesiastical action of love retains its full luminosity and does not simply merge as a variant of the general welfare system.”

And further:

"Inner awareness of the Catholic dimension of the Church will inevitably increase the willingness of the co-worker to coordinate with other organizations in service of the various forms of neediness; but this must be done in the light of the specific profile of the ministry that Christ expects of its disciples. [...] The practical action remains too little, if it does not feel the love of man himself, which nourishes the encounter with Christ. "

Politically correct to Aberophilia?

Even aberrophily has arrived at the time-honored order of knights. It does not appear on the official website of the order's administration, but on that of the Grand Priory of Rome. A press review featured an article in the daily La Repubblica, which Pope Francis said was the only newspaper he regularly reads. The article reports on a Roman comics festival on women's rights and "gender issues" of all sexual "affections" by creating "new images of contemporary heroines, lesbian love stories and women's friendship".

The learned philosopher and psychologist Mauro Faverzani adds:

"This is supplemented by the expressions of an unqualified and total agreement with the statements of Pope Francis, with particular attention to the topics of particular importance to him. They are the expression of a rediscovered idyll after the storms that took place a few years ago and led to a 'revision' of the Sovereign Knights and Hospitaller Order of St. John of Jerusalem of Rhodes and Malta, as its official name once implied.
The Order is certainly very obedient. But is he still really sovereign? "

The Leadership of the Maltese Order "Completely Unusually" Present Themselves Before the Pope in Civilian Clothes

The Grand Master Dala Tore
(Rome) Last Friday, 23 June, the new leadership of the Order of Malta was received by Pope Francis in audience. The delegation was led by the Grand Masterless Order of the Governor of the Grand Master, Giacomo Count Dalla Torre del Tempio di Sanguinetto, who was elected for a year on the last 29th of April.


Maltese Order before of the "bagarre"

Vatican Insider, the news platform directed by the pontifical House Vaticanist Andrea Tornielli, reported enthusiastically the same day about the reception. At the same time, the site emphasized the fact that the delegation had not appeared in the uniform of the knights but in civilian clothes before the pope.
The 1000 year old order has passed through some dramatic months. At the beginning of December 2016 there was an open conflict between the then acting Grandmaster Fra Mathew Festing and Grand Chancellor Albrecht Freiherr von Boeselager. Festing dismissed Boeselager, who found support with the Vatican Secretariat of State and with Pope Francis. The Grand Master insisted on the sovereignty of the Order in an Order. Pope Francis saw it differently. When, at the end of January, he received the Grand Master in audience, he did so less to give Fra Festing the opportunity to present his position, but to give him an ultimatum. The Grand Master took the consequences and resigned.

Dramatic conflict just a "bagarre"?

At the same time, the Vatican Secretariat of State re-elected Boeselager as "Grand Chancellor" in the name of the Pope. Until the election of a new Grand Master, Fra Dalla Torre will be responsible for the duties of the management of the Order, as a state administrator. The actual decisions fall on the Boeselager - Secretary of State.


Maltese Order after the "bagarre"

The Pope's audience was traditionally held the day before the Feast of Saint John the Baptist, the patron of the Order. Topics were "the reform of the Order and humanitarian projects". Critics fear structural intervention in the religious order to cement a change in its course. At the core of the "reform," the assumption is that the first class should be subdued in favor of the Second Estate, to which Boeselager also belongs.
"Kneeling and hand kiss, moving look, civilian clothes. Farewell! decorations, red jackets and presumptuous photos."
Thus Vatican insider author Salvatore Cernunzio describes the "new humility" of the Order. The delegation, led by Statthalter Dalla Torre, had a total of twelve representatives. The Maltese Vicar presented himself to the Pope in a completely different way from that of the Order, which was "last December an actor behind a turbulent bagarre."
For Vatican Insider, the serious conflict, which has several courtly spies, was only a "tussle". After a "successful" operation, the Vatican apparently wants to go to the agenda.


Order Knights with Cukulle at Church events

All the members of the Sovereign Council, who had entered before Pope Francis, appeared in civilian clothes, "without the picturesque uniforms," ​​Cernunzio said. The Order also expresses its dual character in its clothing: military as a knightly order through the red uniform, ecclesiastically through the black Cukulle. Obviously, the knights who had been "encouraged," says Cernunzio,  left the appropriate uniform for the secular occasions last Friday in the closet because they "do not like the pope".
Even in the past, the Order's representatives had appeared wearing less formal civilian clothes before the pope. In the context of the Pope, however, past weeks were intended to emphasize this aspect and emphasize a contrast to the past.
The meeting lasted almost 25 minutes. All those present left the audience room "visibly moved", according to Cernunzio.
Pope Francis had "encouraged" them with the words:
"I am near to you, I pray for you, continue this way."

Maltese Order and Immigration

The governor assured the Pope that the Order was fully committed to the promotion of "international humanitarian law" and that it was increasingly active in the area of ​​"Migration and Development". As of June 28,  Fra Dalla Torre, will take part in the Global Forum on Migration and Development (GFMD) in Berlin.
In the course of the mass immigration to Europe and to the USA, Pope Francis has supported a "right to migration". In this connection, he had a strong demand for a change of the National Citizenship Act over the leadership of the Italian Bishops' Conference appointed by him. Those who are born in Italy will automatically be citizens of the country, according to the draft of the Italian left-wing government, which is currently being discussed by parliament. However, the latest opinion of the IPSOS Institute revealed that the majority of the Italians reject the Ius soli and demand the maintenance of the jus sanguinis, as the principle of pedigrees. The success of the bourgeois-right opposition in the municipal elections of Sunday confirms this trend.
Pope Francis, on the other hand, encouragted the Bishops' Conference to "cozy up" with the left-wing government, according to personal preferences, as the critics say: the pigments on the new palette ranges from registered partnerships for homosexuals to immigration issues. The Maltese Order seems to be viewed as a building block in the network of the "migration industry".
