300 Years of Freemasonry in 2017 -- Bishop Schneider: Freemasonry is "the Work of Satan"

(Rome) On 11 December, Auxiliary Bishop Athanasius Schneider, one of the most remarkable and outstanding bishops of the Catholic Church, held a lecture before in Seville, Spain. The theme was "Mary, vencedora de todas las hierjias" (Maria, Conqueror of All Heresies).

Blessed Pope Pius IX. had pronounced the Blessed Mother in his bull Singulari quadam December 9 in 1854 as "Virgo Beatissima, quae interemit ac perdidit universas haeresas" which means: "Mary, Conquerer and Destroyer of All Heresies". On the day after the proclamation of the dogma of the Immaculate Conception, Pius IX. gathered all cardinals and bishops who had come for the occasion to Rome again to comply with its specific task to "strengthen brothers in the faith," and presented them with Singulari quadam an authentic interpretation of the announced Marie dogma.
In his lecture, Bishop Schneider spoke of Freemasonry and its work, with a view to their anniversary. In 2017, several commemorations will be held. In the German-speaking world, with a certain amount of media, the commemoration of "500 years of the Reformation" by Martin Luther will take place. Thus, other events of historical importance are covered. These include two major events that took place 100 years ago. There is the Bolshevik October Revolution in Russia with the spread of Communism, which still dominates one-fifth of the world's population. And, on the other hand, the recent Marian apparition in Fatima, Portugal, where Maria a few days before the outbreak of the October revolution had already directed the view to Russia.
In 2017, however, an event of the utmost importance is still on the agenda. 300 years ago, in 1717, the first Grand Lodge was established in London, to which the entire Freemasonry refers. 2017 is, in fact, a "memorable" year.
Bishop Schneider is known above all for his promotion of the restoration of the sacredness in the Holy Liturgy and the reverence for the Most Holy Eucharist. On the subject of Communion he published several works. In this, he advocates the worthy reception of Communion and recommends receiving Communion on the tongue while kneeling, as Pope Benedict XVI. required in papal masses. Because of the special attention to Holy Communion, Bishop Schneider is one of the decisive defenders of  marriage and penance. To Synod of Bishops on the Family, he published a publication with 100 questions and answers with which the aspirations of a new doctrine were rejected, allowing the divorced and remarried to the sacraments.
In Seville, Bishop Schneider spoke of the secret society of Freemasonry, which in 2017 looked back on a 300-year long, turbulent and obscure existence, as well as its revolutionary as well as subversive ambition. Bishop Schneider described Freemasonry as a "tool of Satan", since daylight has largely shied away from it.
The Auxiliary Bishop of Astana recalled in his remarks to St. Maximilian Kolbe and his portrayals of the aggressive appearance of Freemasons in Rome during the First World War. In 1917, in the middle of the war, the Freemasons in Rome celebrated their 200th anniversary. The Freemasons had openly declared war on the Church. They had littered Rome with posters, and with the black flag of the Giordano Bruno which were demonstratively moving up to the Vatican. On the posters and the flags "was a representation of Archangel Michael, who was defeated before the triumphant Lucifer laying on the ground", according to Bishop Schneider.
Because of these experiences the young Maximilian Kolbe, who was then at the Gregoriana, studying theology,  created the Militia Immaculatae (Knighthood of the Immaculate), to "counter the actions of Lucifer".
The goal of Freemasonry is, according to Bishop Schneider, "to eliminate the entire doctrine of God, especially Catholic doctrine." To achieve this goal, Freemasonry has been using "numerous societies". "They want the dissolution of morality" for a very specific reason. They are convinced of the principle that "catholicity, without corrupting morality, can not be defeated with logical arguments." Masonic action on this principle is currently "very topical", according to the auxiliary bishop of Kazakhstan.
"Undoubtedly, however, the virgin Mary, who has been immaculately conceived, will in the end, crush the greatest heresy of all time: the heresy of the Antichrist," said the auxiliary bishop.
Bishop Athanasius Schneider is the son of Black Sea Germans. His family had been deported by Stalin to Siberia and Central Asia with more than a million Russian Germans, so Schneider was born in Kyrgyz Tokmok in 1961. In 1973 the family was able to resettle in the Federal Republic of Germany, where he grew up and in 1982 entered the Order of Canons Regular of the Holy Cross. This order already belonged to Saint Anthony of Padua, before he joined the Order of Saint Francis of Assisi. Since 2001, Schneider has been a pastor in Kazakhstan. In 2006 Pope Benedict XVI appointed him as the titular bishop. As such he was first auxiliary bishop of the Karaganda diocese. Since 2011 he is auxiliary bishop of the Archbishopric of Astana.

The world agenda is becoming more clear. Catholic bishops are no longer consecrated. They are "ordained". This makes all priests the same and opens the door for the laity to select priests and bishops.

Bishop Schneider shows there's no problem being traditional and being in total unity with Pope Francis. Bishop Schneider is even pushing Bishop Fellay to take the personal prelature. Bishop Schneider is a true man of the Church.

Kolbe´s name is tarnished by being placed in the Hall of Shame in Wash DC although his Friary housed 100s of refugees from all backgrounds.
¨In an article titled “The Poor Ones” Saint Maximilian Kolbe described the hatred expressed for Christ and His Church in The Talmud:

“Man was redeemed, and Christ founded His Church upon a rock. Some of the Hebrew people recognized Him as the Messiah, but others – among them principally the Pharisees – did not want to recognize Him. Instead, they persecuted His followers and issued numerous laws obliging the Jews to persecute the Christians. These laws, together with stories and appendixes, became their sacred book called The Talmud around the year 500. "

“In this book Christians are called idolaters, worse than Turks, murderers, impure libertines; they are manure, animals in human form, worse than animals, children of the Devil, etc. Catholic priests are called fortune-tellers and bald-headed dunces … the Church is called a house of stupidity and filth; sacred statues, medals and rosaries are called idols. In The Talmud Sundays and holy days of obligation are considered days of perdition."

“This book teaches, among other things, that a Hebrew can deceive a Christian and steal from him since all the properties of a Christian are – from the text itself – ‘like the desert, the first to take them becomes the owner.’"

“This book, written in 12 volumes and breathing hatred against Christ, is considered by these Pharisees a sacred book, more important than Sacred Scriptures.”

At the time of the International Congress of Freemasonry in Bucharest in 1926, Kolbe wrote the article "Rycerz Niepokalanej" [The Knight of the Immaculate] in which one reads:

“These men [the Freemasons] believe that they are the ones who will rule everything, but let us hear what is written in the Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion. Protocol n. 11 states: ‘We will create and put in effect the laws and the governments … in opportune moments … by means of national rebellions. … What we want is that the multitudes, disoriented by the revolt, still in a condition of terror and uncertainty, should understand once and for all that we are so strong, so untouchable, so powerful that in no way will we take into account their opinions and wishes. Instead we are ready and able to crush with irresistible power their manifestations at any moment and in every place. … Then, in fear and trembling, they will close their eyes to everything and await the consequences..."

About a year ago, I heard Bp Schneider preach at a TLM in Ramsgate, Kent. I went with a German Lutheran who was curious about the Tridentine Mass. Bp Schneider preached in English, but my companion was convinced that his accent was NOT German.

What does this prove? I don't know. I just mention it because there's bound to be a conspiracy theorist out there who'll run with it.

Thank God that the brave Archbishop is calling these Freemasons out for what they are. This should be a call to action for all Catholics everywhere. Rise up and defend your homes, your marraiges, your families, your Church......come on what are we waiting for......the gloves are off wade in and join the fight for Christ. Viva Christo Rey !

It proves that you should pray hard for your Lutheran friend if that's the only thing he got from the great Bishop Schneiders speech !

I suppose Bp. Schneider grew up with German and Russian as mother tongues and probably started early with Latin or Greek, so he probably had a greater capacity for learning the phonetics of English. Maybe a better ear and talent are involved. Neither do all Francophones, for instance, have the same accent when they speak English.

Stupid question: Wouldn't have anything to do with living in the Soviet Union till he was in his teens, would it?

A classic---and moronic---red herring tactic we have come to expect from this modernist troll, "Tony V." As always with the liberals, since the live in and for lies and have no arguments they are conditioned to personal attacks, often as in this case having nothing to do with anything. What empty shells!

And isn't it curious that so many masonic organizations celebrated the election of Bergoglio? He was even on the cover of Masonic Times. I just have to believe it's either because Jorge is one of them or espouses the same beliefs.
