Cardinal Sarah Forbidden From Saying Immemorial Mass of All Ages at Chartres Pilgrimage

For the 40th anniversary of the Paris-Chartres Pentecost pilgrimage association, Cardinal Robert Sarah was to celebrate a pontifical high Mass in the traditional Rite, but the Archbishop of Paris and apparently also Pope Francis had something against it.

Edit: Remnant, published on Oct 6th doesn’t mention that Le Barroux’s Abbot will be signing the Mass.

 (Paris) Cardinal Robert Sarah, the former Prefect of the Roman Congregation for Divine Worship and the Order of the Sacraments, was forbidden to celebrate in the traditional Rite in Paris last Saturday.  Every week since July 2021, believers have been protesting outside the Apostolic Nunciature in Paris for the repeal of Pope Francis' motu proprio Traditionis custodes – and they don't intend to stop.

In gratitude for the fortieth anniversary of the Pèlerinage de Chrétienté, the great Pentecost pilgrimage of the tradition from Paris to Chartres, Cardinal Robert Sarah was to celebrate a pontifical high Mass in the Church of Saint-Roch in Paris last October 8th in the traditional Rite.  The 40th pilgrimage is to be carried out again this year from June 4th to 6th after a two-year Corona break.

Now it was rumored, but known from a reliable source, that Cardinal Sarah was forbidden to celebrate by the new Archbishop of Paris, Archbishop Laurent Ulrich - apparently due to the express intervention of Santa Marta.

Monsignor Ulrich, previously Archbishop of Lille, was appointed the new Archbishop of Paris by Pope Francis on April 26.  His inauguration took place on May 23.  The unfriendly gesture towards Cardinal Sarah was one of his very first official acts.

The ban on celebration imposed on the former Cardinal Prefect of the Congregation for Divine Worship and courageous defender of priestly celibacy is an unkindness towards a confrere that is neither bettered nor excused by the fact that Pope Francis ordered it.

Cardinal Sarah was briefly replaced by the Abbot of the Benedictine Abbey of Le Barroux, whose sermon was published by the Association Pelerinage de la Chrétienté.  Pope Francis still has a call from Argentina to be resentful.  Cardinal Sarah's coup, along with Benedict XVI, with their plea for priestly celibacy, to present a de facto veto against plans in connection with the post-synodal letter on the Amazon Synod obviously goes deep.  The Abbot of Le Barroux eloquently stated that Cardinal Sarah preferred "for diplomatic reasons not to celebrate this Mass".

Abbot Louis-Marie de Geyer d'Orth of Le Barroux on Saturday at the Saint-Roch church in Paris

Christian Marquant, the chairman of Paix Liturgique, speaks of a "war of attrition" being waged against the traditional Rite.  The opponents of the traditional Rite had “one point in particular in their sights: the Sacraments”.  In many churches there are now difficulties with baptisms and weddings.  Many dioceses, such as the Archdiocese of Paris, no longer allow confirmations in the traditional Rite without any justification.  This is particularly shocking for Paris, because Archbishop Ulrich personally administered confirmation in the traditional Rite  in his previous archdiocese of Lille eight days before his inauguration in Paris.  This raised hopes that he would take care of liturgical peace in his new diocese.

But with the move to Paris, everything seems to have been forgotten.  In Paris they say that Msgr. Ulrich just wanted to please the Pope.  For the cardinalatial purple?

 "We must be particularly vigilant," says Marquant, because the bishops are "almost systematically" proposing solutions that are not, but strange combinations and mixtures, in which elements of the Novus Ordo are to be incorporated into the traditional Rite, or even that a Sacrament in Latin, but is expected to be offered in the new Rite.

 "Our answer is quite simply: No!" says Marquant.

It is about defending the traditional Rite as a whole, in which each part is important and which cannot be fragmented at will.  In addition, for the believers who are directly affected, and who are being swept away with a broom, it is also a matter of not “losing a hand's breadth of ground”.  Therefore, the resistance will continue: on Saturday in front of the Apostolic Nunciature, on Sunday by the Tradition 14 group with the rosary in Notre-Dame du Travail, the Gardiens de la Tradition (Guardians of Tradition) on Tuesday and Thursday with the rosary in front of the Chancery and on Wednesday with the Rosary in Saint-Georges de la Villette.

The same applies, according to Marquant, to the faithful in the diocese of Saint-Germain-en-Laye, who are forced to celebrate a "wild" Holy Mass every Sunday on Rue Armagis, but will not give in.

Italy's domestic intelligence agency warns of unrest against the next government - which is also being attacked by Pope Francis

 Pope Francis "passionately" defended migration yesterday, attacking the new Italian government that was about to take office.

(Rome) Italy will have a new government at the end of October with two firsts: the first government headed by a woman and the first post-war government to be led by a hard-right party. The losers of the September 25th parliamentary elections and the globalist establishment are already mobilizing against this – including Pope Francis.

Italy is facing two firsts

The political earthquake at the recent election was enormous. The right-wing Fratelli d'Italia (Brothers of Italy) achieved a sensational result, becoming by far the strongest political force in Italy with 26 percent. The party, which was only founded in 2012, ran for the first time in 2013 as part of the center-right alliance and did not even get two percent of the votes. In 2018, she managed to jump over the four percent hurdle that applied at the time, albeit only just. The Fratelli d'Italia were then the only parliamentary party not to enter the all-party government of former ECB President Mario Draghi, which Brussels wanted, and who had been installed without elections from above.

The party is led by Giorgia Meloni, who became the youngest-ever minister in Italian history in 2008 in the center-right coalition then led by Silvio Berlusconi. The Fratelli d'Italia is the post-post successor party to the neo-fascist Movimento Sociale Italiano (MSI ), which dissolved in 1994. 1 This distant inheritance will be played against them. The Left Democrats in particular based their election campaign on warning of a "fascist danger", which the voters obviously recognized as discrediting and did not appreciate.

The Fratelli d'Italia is not an anti-system party, because as such they would have no prospect of participating in the government. Meloni is a Realpolitiker who doesn't want to stay in the opposition forever, but is striving for a course like Orbán in Hungary and Trump in the USA. Certain circles do not like strengthening this axis at all.

The warning of the Italian domestic intelligence service

The Italian domestic intelligence agency AISI presented its latest report last week. One copy each went to Prime Minister Draghi, his interior minister and the parliamentary committee for national security COPASIR, which is also the parliamentary control committee for the secret services. The content is secret, but the broad outlines of it quickly became known. The domestic secret service warns of unrest on the streets of an intensity that Italy has not experienced for a long time. According to the secret service, the riots will be sparked by the high electricity and gas bills. The aim of the riots is to overthrow the government of Giorgia Meloni.

Although Meloni's government, backed by a strong majority in parliament from the centre-right coalition she leads, is not even in office yet, certain forces are already looking to overthrow it. But who wants the destabilization of the country?

First and foremost are the losers in the parliamentary elections. The left-wing parties (Left Democrats, Greens and Radical Left), which had previously formed the core of Draghi's government, were voted out. While the moderate left waits, the radical left is preparing for insurrection. The left-wing trade union CGIL, which is close to the left wing of the left-wing democrats and the radical left, started the agitation last Saturday.

In addition to the radical left, former Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte also announced that he would take his Five Star Movement (M5S) to the streets if “citizen money” were to be touched – as the unconditional basic income wanted by the globalists is called in Italy.

The communist partisan movement ANPI wants to blow the "anti-fascist march on Rome" on the centenary of Mussolini 's march on Rome, which aims to place Meloni in line with Benito Mussolini's fascism.

Criticism of the future government is supported by a strong media front, the so-called mainstreamThis will become the actual pacemaker. The new government is to be taken into a pincer movement, from above by Brussels, international financial institutions such as the World Bank and International Monetary Fund and speculative high finance, and at the same time from below by unrest on Italy's streets. And if her fall doesn't succeed, it's at least about her "discipline."

Italy experienced what that means in 2019, when the Five Star Movement, which had been critical of the EU until then, surprisingly elected Ursula von der Leyen as EU Commission President after the elections to the EU Parliament. According to the then Italian Family Minister Lorenzo Fontana, a traditional Catholic, it was clear that the Five Star Movement had been bought by the establishment and it was only a matter of time before the then government in Rome would be blown up at the behest of the Five Star Movement and the Lega.

In the list of government opponents, left-wing Catholic circles should not be forgotten - Conte made his threat through the Avvenire, the daily newspaper of the Italian bishops - and finally Pope Francis. So far, he has been benevolent towards representatives of the political left, while refusing to meet representatives of the center-right coalition.

The "passionate" defense of migration

One of the main concerns of the new parliamentary majority is the amendment of the immigration law. During the election campaign, Meloni promised to accelerate the repatriation of illegal and criminal immigrants and to tighten asylum regulations. She also called for a naval blockade to North Africa to prevent illegal immigration via the so-called Mediterranean route. The "open door" policy, which encouraged illegal immigration through the tolerated breaking of the law, must end.

Pope Francis opposed this yesterday and remarkably vehemently. In St. Peter's Square yesterday, according to Reuters, he "passionately defended " a right to migrate. That's not exactly what Francis said. He did it a little more subtly, vigorously defending migrants but meaning migration. The exclusion of migrants is "scandalous, disgusting and sinful," said Francis, who had already called on the EU to do so during the "refugee crisis" of 2015: "Take in everyone, good and bad".

The international press agency Reuters became his most influential mouthpiece. Reuters made the direct connection with Giorgia Meloni and her impending formation of a government, and so that the last person would understand what is at stake, Meloni was dubbed in Reuters report a "right-wing extremist". The globalist elite media discredit Meloni across the board in this way, which corresponds to the terminology used by the radical left. “Far Right” denotes a violent extremist right. How far that is from Giorgia Meloni and her Fratelli d'Italia, which are comparable to the AfD in Germany and the FPÖ in Austria and form a common faction in the EU Parliament with the Polish PiS and the Czech ODS, which until their British Conservatives also left, need not be specifically explained.

At one point Francis deviated from the prepared text yesterday.

Pope Francis on a collision course

The example shows how the international public is being “framed” against Meloni – and Pope Francis is (once again) a frontline actor working towards this strategy. Yesterday, Francis embarked on an open collision course with the next Italian government, which is not yet in office. No grace period, no willingness to talk, and no openness. He's already erecting walls around the Vatican in advance, avoiding the otherwise vaunted dialogue, and will be vigilant to ensure none of the new government officials offer anything that could be construed as kindness. With this, Francis negates any cooperation and prevents

supporting some cornerstones of the globalist agenda which Francis is making the focus of his pontificate. Supporting an unrestricted “right to migrate” is at the top of the papal list, as is the uncritical promotion of the Corona measures, the legitimacy of the narrative of human-caused climate change and the implementation of religious relativism by equating all religions and denominations.

On the occasion of the canonizations he made yesterday in St. Peter's Square, Francis deviated from the prepared text of his homily and said:

“The exclusion of migrants is scandalous. The exclusion of migrants is indeed criminal. As a result, they die before our eyes. And that is why the Mediterranean Sea is now the largest cemetery in the world. The exclusion of migrants is disgusting, it is sinful. It is criminal not to open the doors to those in need.” Returned migrants would be “put in concentration camps where they are exploited and treated like slaves”. 

The version subsequently published by the Holy See reads as follows:

“And today I want to think about the migrants. The exclusion of migrants is scandalous! The exclusion of migrants is indeed criminal, it leads to them dying in front of us. And so today we have the largest cemetery in the world, the Mediterranean Cemetery. The exclusion of migrants is abominable, it is sinful, it is criminal not to open doors to those in need. 'No, we're not excluding them, we're just sending them away': to the camps, where they are exploited and sold as slaves. Brothers and sisters, today we remember our migrants, those who are dying. And those who can come in, do we take them in as brothers or do we exploit them? I leave the question open.”

Francis didn't have to mention Giorgia Meloni, her coalition and her election program, because the mainstream media like Reuters took care of that.

1 In the course of the complete restructuring of the Italian party landscape after the collapse of the Eastern Bloc, the renaming of the Communist Party and the dissolution of the previous parties that shaped the post-war governments, in particular, the Christian Democrats and the Socialists, the MSI, which was described as neo-fascist and isolated outside the "constitutional arc", was also dissolved. Its "experience" was declared over by the party leadership and party congress majority. The MSI had consisted of two "souls" dealing with the historically different development of Italy during the Second World War. After the war in northern Italy, the "indomitables" gathered there, who remained loyal to fascism even after the German occupation of Italy in September 1943 and continued to fight on the German side. 

In 1994, the Alleanza Nazionale (AN ) was founded as the successor party, which has now been included in the constitutional arc as a right-wing conservative ally of Silvio Berlusconi's center-right alliance.

2009 also saw the dissolution of the Alleanza Nazionale, which had already been in talks to join the European People's Party (EPP ), and merged with Berlusconi's Forza Italia (FI) into the new Polo della Libertà ( Freedom Pole ), modeled as Berlusconi's Republican Party wanted to establish a two-party system in the USA and create a large center-right party for this purpose. 

In 2012, some former AN representatives, including Giorgia Meloni, saw this attempt as a failure and founded the Fratelli d'Italia .


Nicaragua: Processions Banned in Dissident City of Masaya

 In a statement, the Archdiocese of Managua announced the recent ban on processions in the city of Masaya.

(Managua) "For reasons of public security" processions in honor of Saint Jerome have been banned by the Nicaraguan National Police. He is the patron saint of the city of Masaya. As the socialist regime intensifies its persecution of the Church, it is backed by Pope Francis.

On Saturday, the Archdiocese of Managua announced in a statement: 

"The National Police of the city of Masaya has informed the religious communities and parish priests of the parishes of Masaya, San Miguel Arcángel and San Jerónimo that, for reasons of public safety, no processions are allowed on the respective feast days in this city."

The city of Masaya is 28 kilometers southwest of the capital and traditionally celebrates the longest patronal festival in Nicaragua, perhaps in the world, from September to December, in honor of Church Father Jerome.

In its statement, the Archdiocese of Managua invited parishioners “and those who devote themselves to the patron saint to remember that faith and devotion are treasures that we carry in our hearts and from there we cherish with them by virtue of ancestral heritage in our communities."

According to the archdiocese, the Masses, novenas, and liturgical celebrations will take place as planned. At the same time, the Archdiocese invoked the intercession of the Archangel Michael, St. Jerome "and the Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of the Church and Queen of Peace", "to heal us from all evil with the medicine of God."

Masaya is a former Sandinista stronghold that revolted in April 2018 in the wake of anti-government protests against President Daniel Ortega's Sandinista regime. In the city, the demand for the resignation of Ortega and his government was raised for the first time after they used violence to put down the demonstrations.

Since then, the bishops have been called "putschists" and "terrorists" by the Sandinistas, and the Church has been opposed by the regime. Three bishops critical of the government had to resign, go into exile, or were arrested. On August 19, Bishop Rolando Álvarez of Matagalpa was arrested after having been effectively under house arrest since August 4. Several priests and seminarians were arrested with him and taken to the infamous El nuevo Chipote prison brought to opponents of the regime. Pope Francis has not yet commented on the bishop's arrest. Sandinista circles had already interceded with the Holy See in the days when the bishop was besieged by the police in the episcopal Curia to have Francis appoint the bishop to the Roman Curia. The negotiations about a "deal" have not yet led to a result. According to this, the bishop will be released on condition that he leaves Nicaragua.

The anti-Church reprisals also included the ban on nine Catholic radio stations. Three Catholic television stations were removed from the service by the state media authority.

Processions have been banned in the past because the socialist rulers fear they could become a visible expression of criticism of the regime. Priests were besieged in their churches and the faithful were prevented from entering the church for Mass.

With the support of the USA, the Central American country was ruled by the Somoza family for 43 years. 43 years ago, the Sandinistas overthrew the Somoza regime and seized power for the first time. After the collapse of the communist bloc, they were removed from it but returned to the government in 2006. Relations between the Church and the Sandinistas have been strained for 43 years. The reason for this is not least church circles which, as followers of Marxist liberation theology such as the three priests Ernesto Cardenal, Fernando Cardenal, and Miguel d'Escoto, allied themselves with the Sandinistas. 

Before the Sandinista Revolution, 96 percent of Nicaraguans professed the Catholic faith. According to the latest government information, it should now be only 56 percent. The number of non-denominational rose to 16 percent, and the proportion of Protestant free churches to 25 percent - a phenomenon that Pope Francis, who is described by dictator Ortega as a "friend", seems just as unconcerned as the persecution of the church. Not everything that the government is doing is good, Francis said last Thursday on the return flight from Nur-Sultan to Rome. At the same time, however, he announced that, according to his assessment, it was "not correct" to describe the totalitarian communist regime of the People's Republic of China as "undemocratic".

Bishop Celebrates Opening of Masonic Lodge with Freemasons

 The Bishop of Terni (left) helps open the new Masonic house in his episcopal city.

(Rome) Official efforts for a rapprochement between Church and Lodge have existed since the Second Vatican Council For some, they don't go far enough, others see the border to immorality long since crossed. An example of this transgression was provided by Monsignor Francesco Soddu, Bishop of Termi, who attended the inauguration of the Masonic House of the Grand Orient of Italy on September 27th. 

Soddu, who comes from Sardinia, was ordained a priest in 1985 for the Archdiocese of Sassari. He became regent of the archdiocesan seminary, diocesan director of Caritas and finally director of Caritas Italy in 2012 .

On October 29, 2021, Msgr. Soddu was appointed Bishop of Terni-Narni-Amelia by Pope Francis and received episcopal ordination on January 5.

Freemasonry is divided into two major streams, regular or English Freemasonry and irregular or Romanesque Freemasonry. The latter came about in 1773 with the creation of the Grand Orient of FranceFormally, the essential difference is that English Freemasonry still presupposes a Christian confession in its constitutions (which, however, was weakened in 1929 to a theistic confession and in 1989 only to a deistic confession), while Romanesque Freemasonry rejects any form of reference to God.

Concretely, this meant that the Romanesque Freemasonry that arose in the Catholic states was radically anti-church. Her struggle to oust the church from public life is a common thread running through her story to this day. English Freemasonry also gives a nobler impression, as it seems to be lacking in anti-clerical leadership. But that is only because the Catholic Church in Britain had already been abolished in the 16th century, so there was no longer any need for an anti-clerical leadership. From this, it follows that in reality there are not two or more Freemasons, but only one, which corresponds to the same thinking that contradicts that of the Church.

Is it all just a misunderstanding?

On September 27th, in Via Roma di Terni, the new Masonic House of the Grand Orient of Italy was inauguratedOn this occasion, an open house was held, at which, in addition to the Freemasons of the city, Grand Master Stefano Bisi also came to cut the ribbon that marked the opening. Bisi was welcomed in Terni by the highest officials, the mayor, as the first citizen of the city, the prefect, as the highest representative of the state, and... by the bishop, representing the Church. The Bishop of Terni, Monsignor Francesco Soddu, was undoubtedly the most important of the guests of honour. In his words of welcome, he thanked profusely for the invitation and expressed his best wishes that initiatives such as these,

All attempts at rapprochement between Church and Lodge since the end of the 1960s can be summarized in the justification that the Church's condemnation of Freemasonry since its foundation in 1717 was only the result of misunderstandings. The historian and Franciscan Father Paolo Maria Siano, one of the best experts on Freemasonry, on the other hand, tirelessly provides evidence of the incompatibility of Church and Lodge, relying exclusively on Masonic sources. Freemasonry became a haven for an old enemy of the Church, Gnosticism. From the beginning, there are strong elements of esotericism and also of satanism. And it has not changed until today.

The satisfaction of the lodge brothers was correspondingly great at being able to welcome Bishop Soddu in the new Masonic house.

Contradictory positions

This approach is supported by the highest church authority. It was Cardinal Gianfranco Ravasi, President of the Pontifical Council for Culture, who addressed the “Dear Brothers Freemasons” in an open letter on February 14, 2016. The letter was, generously, reprinted in its entirety by Italy's leading business newspaper, Il Sole 24OreThere was no clarification from the Vatican, no reference to the specification of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith from 1983 under its then prefect Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger that Catholics are forbidden to join a lodge. Anyone who does so will be subject to excommunication.

Even more: In 1981, Pope John Paul II had the then Prefect of Faith Franjo Cardinal Šeper and then his successor Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger answer the question of whether the excommunication by the Second Vatican Council and the new Code of Canon Law had become obsolete:

"It is not for the authorities of the local Church to render any judgment as to the nature of Masonic associations that would overrule the foregoing, in accordance with the statement of this Congregation of February 17, 1981."


Cardinal Ravasi ignored these statements of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith in his open letter, while referring to the Second Vatican Council and the Code of Canon LawIn doing so, he followed those pro-Freemason church circles that undauntedly claim that there is no ban on becoming a member of a lodge, and that membership does not entail excommunication. A well-known representative of this direction is the Viennese cathedral priest Toni Faber.

In 1983 Cardinal Ratzinger, Prefect of the Faith with the authority of John Paul II, stated:

"The negative judgment of the Church on the Masonic associations thus remains unchanged, because their principles have always been considered incompatible with the teaching of the Church and therefore joining them remains forbidden. The faithful belonging to Masonic associations are therefore in a state of grave sin and cannot receive Holy Communion.


After in the first post-conciliar period, churchmen who were friendly to the Freemasons on the one hand and Freemasons on the other had already raised hopes that the epochal difference could soon be overcome, an abrupt change followed with the election of Pope John Paul II and the appointment of Cardinal Ratzinger as Prefect of the Faith turning point that ruined those plans.

Desired approximation

The Terni incident, while not the first of its kind, represents a new taboo breach. A similar incident occurred in 2011 when the Grand Lodge of France was building a new lodge house in Lyon, to the delight of Freemasons and to the dismay of Catholics Episcopal Vicar Emmanuel Payen took part - on behalf of Philippe Cardinal Barbarin, then Archbishop of Lyon.

Alain-Noël Dubard, Grand Master of the Grand Lodge of France, first praised Lyon as a “non-dogmatic, open city”, only to exploit Monsignor Payen's presence to claim that it refutes “the myth of distrust existing between Freemasonry and Church law."

In Italy, Cardinal Ravasi's open letter was the initial spark for an escalation of rapprochement, after a few days before the publication of the Ravasi letter, La Croix, the daily newspaper of the French bishops, had demanded that there should be no more excommunication for Freemasons.

On November 12, 2017, on the occasion of the 300th anniversary of Freemasonry in Syracuse, a conference organized by the Grand Orient of Italy, "Church and Freemasonry - so close, so far?"  took place.  The main speaker was Monsignor Antonio Staglianò, Bishop of Noto. The question of why this conference took place with the appreciative participation of a bishop remained unanswered beyond general appeals for dialogue.

On May 18, 2019, Lodge No. 119 "Benedetto Cairoli" of the Grand Orient of Italy celebrated its 150th anniversary. The surprising guest of honor was Archbishop Riccardo Fontana of Arezzo. The image of Masonic Grand Master Stefano Bisi and the Archbishop embracing each other inspired lodge circles.

Terni means the last stage of increase for the time being: For the first time, a diocesan bishop was present at the opening of a Masonic temple, if only at the external celebration. The opening of the two lodge temples housed in the Masonic house is carried out by the Freemasons with their own ritual behind closed doors, in that the grand lodge "brings in the light" that indicates the beginning of the "ritual work" of the lodge wheels.

The Apostasy of the Bishops

In relation to Terni, the historian Roberto de Mattei, writing for Radio Roma Libera ( Radio Free Rome), recalled Jean Madiran's 1968 book, “L' hérésie du XXe siècle” ( “The Heresy of the 20th Century”). Madiran meant the bishops, namely the heretical or hereticizing positions held by bishops, especially the French, after Vatican II were represented. They gave in to the thinking of the world because, according to Madiran, they were convinced that they had to open up to modernity and leave traditional belief behind because social development also made it necessary to change the understanding of the salvation brought by Christ.

According to de Mattei, Madiran's analysis has lost none of its validity after more than half a century. However, today it is no longer so much a question of heresy, but of an apostasy by the bishops, a comprehensive denial of the Catholic faith. This is shown not only in the heresies and errors common among bishops, but also in a fundamental attitude of gestures and words of strong symbolic meaning.

"One of the first acts of the new bishop of Terni was therefore to visit a seat of Freemasonry, a secret organization condemned in countless documents by the Church, which represents a worldview diametrically opposed to that of the Church."

De Mattei clarifies the contradiction:

"The Masonic House of Terni, just opened, will be a place where the candidate Mason will abandon the Catholic Church to be assimilated into an anti-Christian sect in which he will lose his soul."


All men are "brothers", even "children of God", because it "doesn't matter" what religion one belongs to, because after all, even the condemnation of Freemasonry is just a historical misunderstanding made clear by the Second Vatican Council and the new code of the Canon law was overcome. Or not? It is this relativism that runs through the current pontificate that makes events like that in Terni possible. This attitude is not far removed from the first constitutionsFreemaurerei of 1717, which from its origin presents itself as an ideology that excludes any religious and moral truth, reducing traditional religions to subjective opinions.

What the brothers in the lodge wanted, they put down on paper in the instruction of the Alta Vendita written in 1818:

“We do not intend to win over the popes to our cause, to make them new initiates of our principles, propagators of our ideas. That would be a ridiculous dream (…). What we ask for, what we must seek and expect, as the Jews expect the Messiah, is a Pope according to our needs.”
