Pope Francis About "Freemasons, Hardcore Anticlericals, Satanists" - Which the Media Hasn't Reported

(Rome) When Pope Francis recently visited the  Shroud of Turin, he also paid a visit on June 21st to the Great Mother House of the Salesian order in  Valdocco. In the Basilica of Maria Auxiliatrix the parent company a meeting  took place between the Pope and the Salesians to commemorate on  2015 the 200th year of the birth of its founder, St. John Bosco, who is buried in the basilica. That same evening a meeting  followed with the youth on the central Piazza Vittorio in Turin. What the Pope said has not found its way into the mainstream media. He spoke namely about "Masonic, hardcore anticlericals and Satanists".
Pope Francis also spoke to the youth about the epoch in which the holy Founder lived. Upon that the head of Catholic Church, explained that at the end of the 19th century Turin was a center of Freemasonry and Satanism. The Pope said:

Pope Francis talks about the esoteric network of Freemasonry

"In this country in the late 19th century  were the worst conditions for  growing youth: this part of Italy was full of Masons, even the Church could not do anything, it was full of diehard anti-clericals and even Satanists. That was one of the ugliest moments in the history of Italy."  A clear reference to the esoteric network of Freemasonry.

However, this dark chapter of history said the Pope presented a surprisingly large number of saints who appeared at the same time in Turin and Piedmont. The appearance of the saints Francis contrasted in direct connection with the massive presence of Freemasonry, the anticlericalism and of Satanism. The increased incidence of saints was the answer. "If you want to do a nice piece of homework, then look at how many saints were born in this period! Why? Because they knew that they had to swim against the current of the culture, that lifestyle. [...] Remember the saints of this country and what they have done! "
As the Pope talked to the youth he said  the same previously the Salesians in Valdocco. He described Turin as "the center of the Satanists.  But how many saints have occurred! "However, this point is not included in the official text of the speech of the Pontiff, which was held in the Basilica Maria Auxiliatrix.

The Encounter with the Waldenses

The Pope did not mention the Waldensians  in his speeches. A part of the descendants of the "Masonic and hardcore anti-clericals", were the Waldensian pastors Teofilo Gay, Carlo Alberto Tron and Matteo Prochet to name a few, whom he met the next morning in Turin Waldensian Temple. In his address to the Waldensians, Pope Francis spoke  conversely neither of the dark chapter in Italian history nor the saints that have occurred, however. Even Saint Don Bosco was not mentioned in "his" city.
There was a reason: committed Masons and anticlericals had converted in the 19th century to the Waldenses  as "true Christians" to demonstrate their opposition to the Catholic Church. Among the Freemasons and anticlericals of Turin were numerous Waldensians, who even sought after the life of St. John Bosco.
Freemasons and Waldensians: Meeting on 100th Anniversary of the Grand Orient of Italy (2008)
In an article published in the 2007 Book 1  Antonio Panaino is quoted as saying: "[...] in the Grand Orient we Protestants, Catholics, some Muslims, many Jews, many Waldensians (...)". Paiano is not only Professor of Iranian Studies at the University of Bologna, but also a leading proponent of Grand Orient of Italy (Grande Oriente d'Italia) and scientific director of the Masonic magazine Hiram.
Relations between Waldensians and Freemasons are so close that the Grand Orient in 2008 conducted a meeting at the Waldensian University in Rome for its 100th anniversary  and among whom was one of the deans of the Waldensian Faculty of Theology among the speakers. As an aside it is noted that the meeting was held symbolically on 20 September, the day of the conquest of the Papal States.
For "dark chapter" about which  Pope  Francis spoke, was this open struggle of the Waldensian, Freemasons, anticlericals and Satanists  in the area against the Catholic Church. Against them were a number of saints, among whom St. John Bosco stands out.

Waldensian and Freemasonry: Abolition and Suppression of the Catholic Church

The Piedmont Waldenses took part in the anti-Catholic unrest from 1796 with the arrival of the French revolutionary troops, until 1870, the end of the liberal-Masonic-run Italian unification. According to historians, the first tangible contact between Waldensians and Freemasonry took place in 1787 in Turin. At that time, the Danish theologian and Freemason Friedrich Münter and the Waldensian Pastor Pietro Geymet met. Geymet was the lodge  founder.
Leading Waldensians, including the historian Giorgio Spini and his son Valdo, who coincidentally bore  the name of the founder of the Waldensian Peter Valdes, were also main representatives of the anti-clerical left and secularism. They supported each anticlerical law vehemently, like those abolishing all orders and confiscation of all monasteries and orders' goods through the new state. Some historians see it as an understandable "revenge". However, considering the overall historical context, it becomes clear that their intentions go much further beyond. The attitude of the Waldensians aimed to the de-Catholicization of Italy, and even on the abolition and suppression of the Catholic Church.

Waldensian Pastor 1870 Present at Storming of Rome  - with his dog "Pionono"

As at September 20, 1870, Italian troops at Porta Pia had struck a breech in the walls of Rome and entered the city, a Waldensian pastor was there in the frontline. So great was the hatred of the Papal States, which he wished would be eliminated.
The Waldensian Pastor Luigi Ciari took his dog with him in penetrating the Eternal City, whom he had called for contempt "Pionono" after the then reigning Pope Pius IX. He carried Waldensian Bibles on a cart, as a work of "Liberation", with whom he attempted to spread protestantism among  the Romans, saying he wanted to "liberate it from the thousand years of darkness of Popish tyranny."  
The "heroic deeds" of the Risorgimento, imprisoned en masse, deported or killed bishops and priests, committed  thousands of arbitrary acts against the Catholic laity, the real anti-Catholic racism with which the new Kingdom of Italy treated its Catholic population, particularly in southern Italy and in Venice, must not be neglected at this point. The persecution of Catholics under the former Masonic-anticlerical state doctrine continues to act in a highly distanced attitude of Italians towards their country today.

Francis knows the story and yet sat on the first step

Pope Francis gave the Salesians and the young people to understand that he knows the historical context in the area accurately  that is the place of origin of his family. Nevertheless, when meeting with the Waldensians all this went unmentioned. Instead, the Pope generously took their hand. He spoke a mea culpa , in which he apologized for everything that was done by Catholics throughout history Waldenses.
That  the Pope unsolicited, kissed the Waldensian Bible, brings another in a series of unsuccessful, spontaneous papal gestures towards  other faiths that give rise to endless discussions for several decades. Even the words to the Salesians and the young people on the one hand and the Waldensian other hand reveals   a certain lack of consistency.
Thus   the Pope began on the first step. A step that has not been reciprocated by the Waldensians. Instead, the official Waldensian representative called in his speech to the Pope in Turin  he spoke of   "Eucharistic communion" with the Catholic Church "regardless of the interpretation of the Sacrament."

Waldensians Respond Triumphalistically with Unacceptable Demands

In addition to the self-humiliation of the Pope who asked for forgiveness, the Waldensian arrogance emerged even more clearly. Some things do not seem to change in history. The present Waldensians indeed  hail from  Peter Valdes, but since the 16th century it is largely a Calvinist sect. According to their interpretation, the miracle of transubstantiation doesn't depend on God, it depends on the subjective fideistic faith. Whether the Catholic believes or not,  the miracle is reality,  while the Waldensian does not believe, for him it is not reality. For the Catholic Church, where the transubstantiation is subject  neither to a desire nor to the projection of the fideistic subjectivism of the individual, this is an unacceptable position. For them, the Transubstantiation is an objective reality that is wrought by the Lord, the eternal high priest according to  the order of Melchizedek, which everyone can perceive with their senses and verify the various Eucharistic miracles.
It amazes therefore the ease with which the Protestant side  makes demands, thus violating the limits of ecumenism.  The meeting in the Turin Waldensian Temple was yet another example of this.
Against this background, it is also understandable what the well-known Catholic writer Vittorio Messori has written about his "beloved" Turin, where he lived for a long time: Turin shows the wounds even in the map that goes back to the development and city planning of the Freemasons, the order of the esoteric and initiatory symbolism shows the reverence that is in use among Freemasons. Likewise, when the Catholic philosopher of law and writer Luigi Copertino recalled that in the late 19th century Turin was a "center of Satanism."

In the last section, what "unrealistic demands" was the header referring to? I did not see any particular demands mentioned in your article. Pax.

I guess he likes supporting the ugliest moments like freemasonry and anti-clericalism. He cordially received an honorary membership to the Buenos Aires Rotary Club and then received man of the year some six years later (Rotarianism (founded by freemason Paul Harris in 1905) is condemned by the Church). And he is happily 'rehabilitating' (wants to canonize) the anti-cleircal Hus (condemened for denying transubstantiation, for denying the authority of the heirarchical Church, for denying the need for confession, indulgences, extreme unction, and for teaching that the church was comprised exclusively of the 'predestined' for whom sin was harmless).

And succinctly. too.

And what has changes since the first of these? From wiki:

St Bernard of Clairvaux, for instance, although opposed to the Cathars, said of them in Sermon 65 on the Song of Songs:

"If you question the heretic about his faith, nothing is more Christian; if about his daily converse, nothing more blameless; and what he says he proves by his actions ... As regards his life and conduct, he cheats no one, pushes ahead of no one, does violence to no one. Moreover, his cheeks are pale with fasting; he does not eat the bread of idleness; he labours with his hands and thus makes his living. Women are leaving their husbands, men are putting aside their wives, and they all flock to those heretics! Clerics and priests, the youthful and the adult among them, are leaving their congregations and churches and are often found in the company of weavers of both sexes."

When Bishop Fulk, a key leader of the anti-Cathar persecutions, excoriated the Languedoc Knights for not pursuing the heretics more diligently, he received the reply:

"We cannot. We have been reared in their midst. We have relatives among them and we see them living lives of perfection."

What has changed? Well a lot of externals, but the essential remains: We Catholics need to correct ourselves, self-sacrifice more (forsake your homosexual relationship, strengthen your relationship with your heterosexual spouse, give up the season tix to your entertainment and pray instead, etc.) and give to charities on the parish level, not he diocesan level or greater. And give of your time, not money.

Don't forget his "hidden hand" picture on the subway train. I'm guessing since he's a precursor for AC his reign will probably be just about the same 31/2 years.
