Skip to comments.Vanity: Pope Benedictís significant failure
Posted on 08/22/2014 4:54:36 PM PDT by ebb tide
The Second Vatican Council was not evil: no Council of the Church ever is. But because it was dominated by Modernist experts, periti, the considerations of its bishops reflected their influence. Thus, the Council served as a catalyst for the resurgence of the heresy within the Church.
Is there more to this post? I don’t see anything.
My apologies to all:
From 2007? It’s all Benedict”s fault because he didn’t condemn freemasonry? Really?
Are you a Free Mason? You seem paranoid.
Freemasonry does NOT mock God. Every man applying to be a Mason must demonstrate that before he is ever permitted to enter a masonic lodge. You, who have been there understand that. The others can remain in their ignorance.
Freemasonry is demonic. And the Catholic Church rightfully forbids Catholics from joining that cult.
1) I have never been "there".
2) You do not know what I understand and stop telling me you do know.
Really? And you know this from first hand or just what you have been told? I joined as a Mason more than 30 years ago. And I NEVER saw anything that was anti Catholic. Because somebody in the Church decided it was “demonic” and said all Catholics would be committing a grevious sin against
God, I had to make the choice between what I was told was sinful, or no longer support Masonry. My God and my faith come first. When I asked my local priest why it was sinful, other than the Church saying it was, he answered “I don’t know.” I missed the fellowship I had with my brothers, but as I said, my God comes first. I keep my masonic oath.
Okay, I get Modernism is the worst heresy. Pope Benedict has been fighting that his whole career - with everything he’s written. And who listens to the Free Masons? They’re not exactly on the forefront of the culture wars - are there any Free Masons under the age of 60? Doesn’t seem very big with the hip younger crowd to me - but I could be wrong.
I get that Hollywood, Liberal Academia, Islam, ACLU types are a threat - I don’t even know any Mason - seems a bit tin hat-ish.
I'm sorry, but if you kept your masonic oath, I don't think your "god" comes first..
We clearly saw and felt it to be Our duty to use Our authority to the very utmost against so vast an evil. We have several times already, as occasion served, attacked certain chief points of teaching which showed in a special manner the perverse influence of Masonic opinions.
I not questioning the morality of the Masons. I just don’t think they are relevant - Hitler was evil, but he’s dead. Perhaps we should condemn Pope Benedict because he didn’t write an encyclical condemning Hitler. Or maybe, perhaps, we should fight the battles of the 21st century.
It appears your priest is as confused as you are
I’ll pray for the both of you. To whom did you swear your “oath”?
Do you know that Joseph Stalin is one of your masonic “brothers”?
Or maybe, perhaps, Pope Francis could stop inviting muslims to pray in his gardens that muslims may conquer the “infidels”.
Well, since you’re still here, I swore my oath on the Holy Bible. Isn’t that where we usually take our oaths?
