 The  deliberately plannned fusion of CHRISTIANITY
 and TALMUDIC JUDAISM (father of  Freemasonry  and
 "kindred  Secret  Societies"), in its swift surge
 to   completely   obliterate   Christianity,   is
 becoming   so   alarming  to  informed,  Militant
 Catholics, that the necessity for reprinting  the
 great  speech  of  Monsiegneur  Jouin is urgently
 needed, to spread among the faithful..
 The scholorly late Msgr. Jouin, founder of "Revue
 International  des  Societies Secretes" and world
 authority on Jewish history and objectives,  knew
 the necessity for exposing these facts in defense
 of Christianity. Thus, in all his masterly works,
 most  of  which  have  not  been  translated into
 English, he  showed  the Judeo-Masonic  peril  to
 Christianity and reitered the golden VOICE of the
 The Vatican formally praised him for this work of
 enlightenment  as  far  back  as  June, 1919 in a
 letter  signed  by   Cardinal   Gasparri,   Papal
 Secretary  of  State  and  he  was  accorded  the
 Apostolic Blessing. (Letter reproduced in full on
 page 30.)
 The  reprinted speech of Msgr. Jouin takes on new
 meaning in view of the current  rush  of  Priests
 and   Religious   who   are   eager   to   accept
 Judeo-Masonic "BROTHERHOOD"  awards,  Grants  and
 Political  favors.  No  longer  can  the alterted
 laity remain silent to the HERESY  of  INTERFAITH
 (including   JUDEO-CHRISTIAINTY)  that  is  being
 perpetrated  in  DEFIANCE  of  the  oft  repeated
 infallible Encyclicals of Our Great Popes.
 Pope  Clement XIII gives the Pontiff's command in
 unmistakable terms, which EVEN TO THE UNINFORMED,
 cannot be misinterpreted:
 "We  have  resolved  and  decreed  to condemn and
 forbid  such  Societies,  assemblies,   reunions,
 conventions,   aggregations  or  meetings  called
 either Freemasonic  or  known  under  some  other

 The  Papacy  and  Freemasonry,
 a Speech by Monseigneur Jouin,  December 8,  1930
 Papacy and Freemasonry, those are the two  powers
 active  throughout  the world and each is seeking
 to dominate it.  The  solution  of  the  struggle
 taking  place  between  them  is,  at the present
 moment of the utmost importance; for we are  face
 to  face  not only with the crossroads of history
 but  also  with  a  radical   transformation   of
 humanity  itself.  Either  Roman Catholicism will
 lift us  up  again  to  the  level  of  Christian
 civilization  or  else Judeo-Masonry will drag us
 down the path of barbarism and decadent paganism.
 The  whole  world  oscillates  between  the  two:
 Christianism and Paganism. On December 8th, 1892,
 Pope  Leo  XIII  wrote  to  the Italian Episcopal
 Hierarchy: "It is necessary to fight  Freemasonry
 with  those weapons of divine faith which in past
 ages vanquished paganism."
 Moreover the Papacy and Judeo-Masonry are both so
 fully  conscious  of  the  diametrically  opposed
 parts that they are playing that they assume that
 from  it  must  issue  the  political,  economic,
 intellectual and religious future of  individuals
 as  well  as  of  nations.  It  is a fact and the
 better  proof  of   it   is   their   irreducible
 antagonism toward each other.
 What  is,  indeed, Judeo-Masonry today if not the
 concentration  and  mobilization  of   all   evil
 forces?  This  Sect  with  its threefold claim of
 being  Counter-Church   (against   the   Church),
 Counter-State    (against    the    State)    and
 Counter-Morality (against  traditional  morality)
 takes  pride in being above all and for all times
 the enemy of the  Catholic  Church;  one  of  its
 rallying  calls  is  that of Tigrotto, one of the
 Alta Vendita chiefs  who,  in  1822,  proclaimed:
 "Catholicism  must  be  destroyed  throughout the
 whole   world."   With    Tigrotto    also    the
 anti-Catholic  plan  is  expressed  thus: "Let us
 conspire  only  against  Rome."   Is   this   not
 expressed  in  an  identical manner in the German
 "Los Von Rom" or in the English: "No Popery?"
 Monseigneur Gay,  having  been  assigned  by  the
 Council  of  the  Vatican  the duty of writing "A
 Memorandum  on  Secret   Societies,"   gave   the
 following striking definition of Freemasonry: "It
 is evident that in a general way,  this  doctrine
 of Freemasonry is not only a heresy, nor even the
 totality of all heresies,  which  find  in  it  a
 haven;  it is a fact that Masonry goes beyond the
 limits of  what  constitutes  what  is  generally
 ascribed to the word 'heresy,' for it allows full
 play to the commission of outrageous  perversion.
 Freemasonry  is  indeed  the abyss of all errors,
 the well of perdition."
 Catholic King Louis XVI, King of France Louis XVI
 Distributes   Alms   to   the   Poor  The  French
 Revolution's Satanic Freemasonic Creed The  Reign
 of  Terror  Execution  of  Catholic Monarch Louis
 XVI, January 21, 1793
 This abyss of all  errors  (Abyssus  Errorum)  is
 justly  compared  to the "abysmal well' mentioned
 in Revelation (abyssus putei, ix,  1-3  ),  whose
 emanations darken the light of the sun and poison
 the  air.  It  is  this   accursed   Sect   whose
 perversion  was  stigmatized by Pope Pius IX when
 he named it: "The Synagogue of Satan." Due to its
 enormous  extension and its nowadays very visible
 collusion  with  International  Jewish   Finance,
 Freemasonry  has  indeed become the "Synagogue of
 Satan." As such it provided funds for the Russian
 revolution,   installed  in  Moscow;  it  carried
 Communism  from  East  to  West,  took   up   the
 leadership  of States of their governments, their
 various administration departments or ministries,
 and  of their parliaments and, in consequence, it
 is such a world power  that  for  any  discerning
 mind,  it  seems  as  though, today, there are on
 earth only two great powers, viz.:  Judeo-Masonry
 in  the  service of World Jewry and the Church in
 the hands of Peter's successor. Those two  powers
 are  at  war,  face to face as though fighting an
 endless duel, as  is  clearly  expressed  in  the
 stone inscription of the Masonic Grand Orient and
 Supreme Council  of  France:  "The  fight  taking
 place  between  Catholicism  and Freemasonry is a
 fight  to   the   very   death,   ceaseless   and
 merciless."  (Bulletin  of  the  Grand  Orient of
 France P. 183. 1892  and  in  memorandum  of  the
 Supreme Council No. 85, page 48.)
 With such a rallying definite line of action, one
 can positively affirm that Judeo-Masonry  is  the
 unique enemy of the Church. It can be detected in
 all anti-Catholic attacks against clergy or laity
 led  either  by  Freemasons  or by even Catholics
 whose faith has decreased  due  to  either  fear,
 passion or self-interest.
 In  his  encyclical "Humanum Genus" Pope Leo XIII
 wrote: "There  exists  in  the  world  a  certain
 number   of   sects   which   although  seemingly
 different one from another as  to  name,  ritual,
 form  and origin are, however, similar due to the
 analogy  of  their  aim  and  chief   principles.
 Indeed,  they  are identical to Freemasonry which
 is, for them all, the central  point  from  which
 they  proceed  and  toward  which they converge."
 Further, in his  letter  to  the  Italian  people
 dated  December  8,  1892,  Pope Leo XIII writes:
 "Let   us   remember   that   Christianity    and
 Freemasonry are essentially incompatible, to such
 an extent, that to become united with  one  means
 being divorced from the other. Let us, therefore,
 expose Freemasonry as the enemy of  God,  of  the
 Church and of our Motherland."
 St.    Peter, First Pope of the Catholic Church
 At  the  present  moment (1930) it is a fact that
 St. Augustine's two cities, the City of Good  and
 The  City  of  Evil are separate, each seeking to
 rule in the world. The  City  of  Evil  ruled  by
 Satan  is  named  Judeo-Masonry;  insistently  it
 proclaims   to   all,   Catholics,   Protestants,
 Orthodox, to Freethinkers, Communists and Pagans,
 in fact  to  the  whole  world  that:  "To  fight
 against   papacy   is   a  social  necessity  and
 constitutes the constant  duty  of  Freemasonry."
 (Masonic  International Congress held in Brussels
 1904, page 132 of the report. ) The City of  Good
 and  of  Jesus Christ is the Catholic Church; for
 over 19 centuries, according to the  teaching  of
 the  Roman  Pontiff, She repeats to the world Her
 immutable creed: I believe in the  Holy  Catholic
 and Apostolic Church.
 Such  is  the  subject  of my conference. From an
 over-all viewpoint, there should  issue  a  solid
 appreciation  of  the  work  of a number of Popes
 done on the subject of the  Sect  of  Freemasonry
 from  the time it made its appearance in the 18th
 century.  It  showed   its   anti-religious   and
 anti-social    activities    as   well   as   its
 licentiousness and its aims which, from the  very
 beginning,  were  susceptible of excommunication.
 It showed also its prodigious development leading
 to   the  situation  which  I  already  sketched,
 namely, the duality of forces: one, the forces of
 evil concentrating in Judeo-Masonry and the other
 the forces of good,  concentrated  in  one  flock
 under    the   staff   of   the   one   shepherd;
 (representative of Jesus Christ) who, since  1738
 has constantly renewed the appeal for the defense
 of the Church against Her mortal  enemy  --  even
 though  in many instances the appeal was useless.
 Surrounded by Ghettos and Masonic Lodges, in  the
 course  of  a  fight  which has become universal,
 Popes have reiterated their  appeal  for  defense
 and  have clearly shown the place and the duty of
 Catholics -- all too  frequently  the  place  has
 been left deserted and the duty has been betrayed
 in a shameful manner. However, even if in our day
 we  are  witnessing  the terrific confirmation of
 these truths, it is necessary  to  remember  that
 they were proclaimed by several Popes.

 + Pope Clement XII 1730-1740
 Founded in 1717, modern speculative Masonry  took
 on  its  actual form following the publication by
 Anderson, a clergyman, of the "Constitutions"  in
 1723.  Fifteen  years  later,  on April 28, 1738,
 Pope Clement XII in his  Pontifical  Constitution
 "In  Eminenti"  condemned  Freemasonry  as  being
 Counter-Church  and  Counter-State.  It  was  the
 Pontifical  reply.  Failure  to  heed it, whether
 partial or general, by the Church and  the  State
 of  those  days,  seems  to  us as the primordial
 cause of all our political and religious  present
 day turmoil.
 Thus said Pope Clement XII:
 "Let us meditate upon the serious evils which are
 usually the result of those kinds of Societies or
 centers,   not   only  concerning  the  peace  of
 temporal States, but still more  as  regards  the
 salvation  of  souls.  Those Societies are not in
 agreement with the civil and economic laws of the
 "In  order  to  close  the  widely  open  road to
 iniquities which might be committed with impunity
 and  also for other reasons, just and reasonable,
 that have come to our knowledge .  .  .  We  have
 resolved  and  decreed to condemn and forbid such
 Societies,  assemblies,  reunions,   conventions,
 aggregations    or    meetings    called   either
 Freemasonic   or   known   under    some    other
 denomination. We condemn and forbid them by this,
 our  present  constitution,  which   is   to   be
 considered valid for ever."
 However,  not  only  is  the condemnation by Pope
 Clement XII extended to  Masonic  Sects,  but  it
 applies also to all the laymen who, although they
 are not members of Societies called  Freemasonic,
 favor  them,  in any manner, thus: "We command to
 the faithful to  abstain  from  intercourse  with
 those   societies   .  .  .  in  order  to  avoid
 excommunication,  which  will  be   the   penalty
 imposed  upon all those contravening to this, our
 order. None, except at the point of death,  could
 be  absolved of this son except by us or the then
 existing Roman Pontiff."
 The  Constitution  "In  Eminenti"  was   extended
 throughout  all  the  Papal  States  by  Cardinal
 Ferrao's Edict of January 14th, 1739.
 + Pope Benedict XIV 1740-1758
 Pope  Benedict  XIV,  on March 16, 1751 published
 the Constitution "Providas" in which he  inserted
 in  full  In  Eminenti,  the  Bull which had been
 written by his predecessor, Clement XII, in order
 to  make it very evident that the condemnation of
 Freemasonry was irrevocable and was to be applied
 to the future as well as to the present.
 As  a  matter  of fact, Benedict XIV, had already
 denounced Masonry as  being  Counter-Morality  in
 connection with the Order of Felicity of Avignon,
 a Secret Society of debauchers; among  themselves
 the  members of this Society spoke only in a kind
 of slangy language usually used by  sailors.  The
 Pope  mentions  it twice in his correspondence. I
 am here transcribing a few lines from his  letter
 of March 25th, 1744, addressed to the Cardinal de
 Tencin, who was the Pontifical Ambassador at  the
 Court  of  King  Louis XV: "We have received from
 Avignon the  news  that  in  Nimes  and  also  at
 Montpellier   the   Freemasons   gave   a   great
 entertainment in order to gain proselytes.  Women
 and men from the Avignon Society went to it, and,
 doubtless, upon their return they will organize a
 Freemasonic   Lodge  as  they  once  had  already
 attempted to do under  the  name  of  Society  of
 Felicity;  they  might  have succeeded had it not
 been for the zeal of the Archbishop. We wish  you
 to  protest,  in  Our name, to His most Christian
 Majesty. so that He Will  not  authorize  in  His
 States,   the  Sect  of  Freemasons  which  other
 Princes have extirpated from their own  country."
 (From  the correspondence of Pope Benedict XIV by
 Gmile de Heckeren. )
 Furthermore,  in  his  Constitution,  "Providas,"
 Benedict  XIV  enumerates six reasons which drove
 Pope Clement XII to strike Secret Societies; they
 are 1) the Interconfessonalism (or Interfaith) of
 Freemasons; 2) their secret; 3)  their  oath;  4)
 their  opposition  to  Church  and  State; 5) the
 interdiction pronounced against them  in  several
 States  by  the  Heads of such countries; and, 6)
 their immorality  which  the  Pope  characterizes
 thus:  "Those Societies, according to men who are
 prudent and honest, are ill-famed, and to  become
 a   member   thereof,  would  lead  to  evil  and
 From the outset, before the 18th  century,  under
 the  efforts  of  Masonry  which sank us into the
 horrors of the French Revolution,  the  Sect  had
 been unmasked by the Popes and exposed before the
 eyes of the  Catholics  with  its  odious  triple
 shame  of  Counter-Morality,  Counter-State,  and
 above all, Counter-Church. Let  a  Freemason,  F.
 Limousin,  in  his  first  number  of the Masonic
 Review called "L'ACACIA," of October, 1902, using
 the   pen-name  of  Hiram,  gives  the  following
 characteristic  definition:  "Freemasonry  is  an
 association  .  . . an institution . . . so it is
 said . . . but it is not that at all. Let us lift
 up   all   the   veils,  risking  even  to  evoke
 numberless  protestations.   Freemasonry   is   a
 church:     It     is     the     Counter-Church,
 Counter-Catholicism: It is the  other  church  --
 the   church   of  heresy,  of  Freethought;  The
 Catholic Church is considered  as  the  arch-type
 church, the first church, church of dogmatism and
 of orthodoxy."
 + Pope Clement XIII 1758-1769
 I  wish  to add that during the 18th century Pope
 Clement XIII condemned highly placed Masons in an
 ordinance  of  January, 1759, against the work of
 Helvetius and this Pope published on  Sept.  3rd,
 1759,   his  constitution  "Ut  Primum"  directed
 against  the  "Encyclopedie"   of   Diderot   and
 d'Alembert   .  Finally,  in  his  Encyclical  of
 November  25th,  1766,  "Christianae   Republicae
 Salus,"  Pope  Clement  XIII  denounced the peril
 incurred  by  Church  and   State   through   the
 published  works  of  so-called  philosophers. It
 meant that all Voltairian and Masonic works  were
 being anathemized in the following terms:
 "The enemy of all Good," said the Pope, "has sown
 the evil seed in the field of the  Lord  and  the
 evil  grain has grown rapidly, to such an extent,
 that it threatens to destroy the harvest.  It  is
 time  to  cut  it  down." "In our days nothing is
 free from the attacks of those who  are  impious.
 God  Himself becomes the object of their insolent
 audacity, they represent Him as a  being  who  is
 mute,  inert,  devoid of a sense of providence or
 justice; they lower Him  down  to  the  level  of
 animals.  As far as they are concerned, matter is
 all or at least dominates everything. Even  those
 among  them who are opposed to such gross errors,
 but too frequently in our days, are  not  afraid,
 in  their  pride, to scrutinize our mysteries and
 to submit everything to  nothing  but  their  own
 reasoning power."
 Clement  XIII  exposes  all  the sores of Masonry
 which at the time of the  French  Revolution  had
 reached   the   state   of   gangrene,   such  as
 Materialism, Nationalism, Deism and even  Atheism
 which  is  most  imperfectly veiled by the "Grand
 Architect of the Universe," a notion which, after
 all,  is  only  the  spontaneous evolution of the
 universal    religion     promised     in     the
 "Constitutions"   of  Anderson.  In  a  last  but
 anxious appeal the Pope entreats all the  Bishops
 in  the Catholic world to link their efforts with
 his own and to beseech all Christian  Princes  to
 take in hand the defense of the Sorrowing Church,
 "Gementis  Ecclesiae  Causam  Exposcite."  Listen
 attentively,  23  years  before 1789 (year of the
 French Revolution) the Church was in  tears,  due
 to  the  threats held out by Freemasonry; who can
 vouch for the assumption that 23 years remain  to
 us  before  the Judeo-Masonry of the 20th century
 will add to the tears being shed by the Church --
 blood  tears  similar  to those shed during 1793?
 But this time it will not be in France only,  but
 throughout  the whole world. Is this not the time
 to speak again of the Sorrowing Church?
 + Pope Pius VI 1795-1799
 During the last  quarter  of  this  18th  century
 during  which  Masonry  had  spent  72  years  to
 prepare for 1789 and the bloodshed which  was  to
 last  many  years, Peter's Seat had been occupied
 by Pius VI, who was destined to die in exile. His
 first  Encyclical  of  December  25, 1775, is the
 acknowledgment  of  the  tears   he   has   shed,
 "Nostrarum  Vim Pacrymarum Exquirit," those tears
 caused by the so-called  philosophers,  fanatical
 enemies   of  the  Church,  professors  of  lies.
 "Magistros Mendacissimos," leaders  of  sects  of
 perdition  who,  with  their  erroneous  beliefs,
 penetrate into the seats of the Academies, in the
 houses  of  the notables, in the Courts of Kings,
 and what is still more horrible,  even  penetrate
 in  the  Lord's  Sanctuary, "Etiam in sanctuarium
 Alas! Those "Sects of Perdition" at the  hour  of
 the  Revolution dragged along too many members of
 the regular and secular Clergy whose names appear
 on the lists of Masonic lodges: "Corruptio optimi
 pessima." What of the situation today?
 + Pope Pius VII 1800-1823
 Let  us now enter into the 19th century. The wars
 of the French Revolution and of the Empire spread
 and   favored  the  creation  of  Masonic  lodges
 (mostly Military lodges) and the  rapid  European
 expansion of Masonic subversive ideas.
 Pope Pius VII became one of its glorious victims.
 It  was  therefore,  in  full  knowledge  of  the
 subject,   that   on   September,  1821,  in  his
 Encyclical  "Ecclesiam  a  Jesu-Cristo  the  Pope
 applied  to  the  Carbonari  the  following text:
 "They come under the guise of sheep although they
 are,  in  truth, none but ravening wolves." Thus,
 the Pope reiterated against  the  Freemasons  the
 condemnations   pronounced  by  Clement  XII  and
 Benedict XIV because they propagandize "religious
 indifference   which   is,   of   all,  the  most
 pernicious"; They also  grant  to  everyone  full
 liberty   to   inaugurate  for  himself  his  own
 religion according to his ideas and inclinations;
 to also profane and sully Our Savior's Passion in
 some of  their  odious  ceremonies;  to  hold  in
 contempt the Sacraments of the Church to which in
 a horrible sacrilegious  manner  they  substitute
 sacraments  of their own invention and they treat
 with  derision  the  Mysteries  of  the  Catholic
 Religion.  Lastly,  urged  by a particular hatred
 toward  the  Apostolic  See,   because   of   its
 supremacy,  Freemasons  form  conspiracies of the
 darkest and  most  sinister  kind,  in  order  to
 overthrow it.
 To  what  does  Pope Pius VII refer when he makes
 use of the  words  "they  hold  in  contempt  the
 Sacraments  of the Church"; if not to the Masonic
 180 degree of the Rose Croix, which is an  odious
 parody of the Sacrament of the Eucharist? What is
 it that the Pontiff stigmatises when  he  alludes
 to  the  substitution  of  Masonic  sacraments to
 those of the  Church  and  its  ensuing  horrible
 sacrileges  if  not  to  the "black mass" and the
 theft of consecrated hosts which  Masons  of  the
 highest  grades  carry on their person as "Sacred
 Deposit" during the ceremony which  precedes  the
 orgy  in the course of which they will profane It
 in the lowest, voluptuous ignominy?
 Why should we thus administer such blows to  this
 "Anti  Papism"?  It is because it is the unbroken
 chain of Freemasonry and because the Pope is,  on
 earth,  the  representative of Jesus Christ whose
 Cross is trampled upon by Masons, and because  in
 the  course  of their rites, at the 30 initiation
 grade, they throw upside down  the  Pope's  tiara
 and  figuratively  pierce  his heart. Such things
 occur at the initiation of the degree  of  Knight
 Kadosh. Pope Pius VII was well informed.
 + Pope Leo XII 1823-1829
 Soon  after  his  election  as  Pope on March 13,
 1825,  Leo  XII  published  his  Encyclical  "Quo
 Graviora"    condemning    the   Society   called
 Freemasonry,  as  well  as   all   other   Secret
 Societies.  In  this  Encyclical he first of all,
 republished the Constitutions  of  Popes  Clement
 XII,  Benedict XIV and Pius VII. Their appeal had
 remained  fruitless  as  far   as   the   various
 governments  were  concerned  and  Pope  Leo  XII
 "We have endeavored to discover the state, number
 and  influence  of secret societies and We easily
 have been able to acknowledge that, if  only  due
 to  the  number  of  new  sects which have joined
 them, their  audacity  has  increased.  The  Sect
 known  under  the  name  of "L'universitaire" has
 especially   drawn   Our   attention:   It    has
 established  a  center  in  several  Universities
 where young men, instead of receiving the correct
 teaching  are perverted by a few teachers who are
 initiates of certain  Mysteries  which  might  be
 called  Mysteries  of Iniquity and are trained to
 commit crimes."
 Let us note that Pope Leo XII was afraid  of  the
 masonic penetration in public school teaching and
 seemed to foresee the devastation that  the  "One
 School"  would  rapidly  inflict  upon  both  the
 Church and society at large.
 Leo  XII,  in  summing  up  the  harm  caused  by
 clandestine sects, so evident in works written by
 their members, wrote:
 "They have dared publish works  on  Religion  and
 Affairs   of   State,  they  have  exposed  their
 contempt   for   authority,   their   hatred   of
 Sovereignty,  their  attacks against the Divinity
 of Jesus Christ and the very  existence  of  God:
 They  openly  vaunt  their materialism as well as
 their codes  and  statutes  which  explain  their
 plans  and  efforts  in  order  to  overthrow the
 legitimate Heads of State and completely  destroy
 the Church.
 "What  is  definitely  ascertained  is that those
 different sects, despite the diversity  of  their
 names,   are   all   united  and  linked  by  the
 similarity of their infamous plans."
 Thus speaking, Pope Leo XII,  considered  he  was
 accomplishing  his duty as Supreme Pontiff and he
 wrote further, this page, which thoroughly throws
 light on our actual situation:
 "Let  us  use  the words of our predecessor, Pope
 Clement  XIII,  in  his  Encyclical   Letter   of
 September  14, 1758, addressed to all Patriarchs,
 Primates, Archbishops and Bishops of the Catholic
 Church, in which he said:
 'I  entreat  you  to  become  penetrated  of  the
 Strength of the Spirit of God,  His  Intelligence
 and  His Virtue, in order to escape being likened
 to the mute dogs who, unable to bark,  leave  Our
 flocks  exposed to the voracity of beasts roaming
 the  fields.  Let  nothing  stop   Us,   in   the
 fulfillment  of  Our  duty  which  enjoins  Us to
 suffer all kinds of combats for the Glory of  God
 and  the  salvation  of  souls. Let Us constantly
 keep before Our eyes  the  picture  of  HIM  who,
 during  HIS  lifetime,  was  also  exposed to the
 opposition of sinners. If we allow  ourselves  to
 be shaken by the audacity of evildoers it will be
 the end of eposcopal strength, the  end  also  of
 the  sublime  and divine authority of the Church:
 moreover, let us  abandon  even  the  thought  of
 being  Christians if we have reached the point of
 trembling before the threats or  the  traps  laid
 for us by perverts'."
 Leo   XII   ends   this   magnificent  Encyclical
 anathematizing Freemasons and writing:
 "Those men are like those to whom,  according  to
 Saint   John,   the   Apostle,   hospitality  and
 greetings should be denied.  (Second  Epistle  of
 St.  John, V. 10). They are the same men whom our
 Fathers,   without   hesitation,    termed    the
 first-born of the devil."
 + Pope Pius VIII 1829-1830
 Successor  of  Leo  XII,  Pope  Pius VIII, in his
 Encyclical "Traditi", published at  the  time  of
 his  advent  on  May  21,  1829  renewed  all the
 condemnations of his predecessors, repeating as I
 showed  above,  that all Masonic Sects are issued
 from the "Well of Perdition." It  was  under  his
 short  reign as Pontiff that a new Lodge of "Alta
 Vendita" was  discovered  in  Rome,  having  been
 formed  in  1828  and headed by Joseph Picilli as
 Grand Master. Following Leo XII, Pius  VIII  most
 particularly    mentions    the    Sect    called
 "Unitsersitaire," saying:
 "Its aim is to corrupt youth in schools."
 and he applies to Masons those words of Saint Leo
 the Great:
 "Their law is untruth: their god is the devil and
 their cult is turpitude."
 + Pope Gregory XVI 1831-1846
 On August 15, 1832, Gregory XVI,  addressing  all
 the Episcopal Hierarchy of the Catholic world, in
 his Encyclical: "Mirari Vos" wrote:
 "Truly indeed we can say that this  is  the  hour
 granted  to  the  power  of darkness to grind the
 elect as wheat."
 "Evil comes out of Secret  Societies,  bottomless
 abyss of misery, which those conspiring societies
 have dug and in which heresies and sects have, as
 may  be said, vomited as in a privy all they hold
 of licentiousness, sacrilege and blasphemy.
 Just 18 days before his death, on may  13,  1846,
 Pope  Gregory  XVI  put in the hands of Cretineau
 Joly, the documents of the Italian  Alta  Vendita
 which  this author published in 1858 in his book:
 "L'Eglise Romaine en face de la Revolution" ( the
 Roman  Church  facing  the  Revolution). It would
 indeed be of the highest kind of interest to have
 a faithful and complete copy of those manuscripts
 which are, doubtless, in the Vatican.
 + Pope Pius IX 1848-1878
 Let   us  proceed  further.  The  chief  work  of
 Judeo-Masonry  planned  by  Cavour,  Mazzini  and
 Garibaldi   was   reaching  its  goal  under  the
 Pontificate of Pope Pius IX, with the downfall of
 Papal  temporal  power. According to the theories
 of those sectarians of Masonry, such a  loss  was
 sure  to  entail  also  that  of spiritual power;
 accordingly the new Pope fixed the responsibility
 for  the  conspiracy  upon  the  Secret Societies
 when, in the Encyclical following his advent,  he
 wrote on November 9, 1846:
 "Venerable  Brethren, you also are fully aware of
 the monstrous errors and devices employed by  the
 children  of  this  century to pursue a merciless
 war against the  Catholic  Religion,  the  Divine
 Authority  of the Church and its laws in order to
 trample   upon   the   rights   of    both    the
 Ecclesiastical  and  Civil power: such is the aim
 of the guilty machinations against Saint  Peter's
 Roman  See,  upon  which  Christ  established the
 inexpugnable foundation of His  Church.  Such  is
 the  aim  of  those Secret Societies issuing from
 darkness for the eventual ruin  of  Religion  and
 States,  and  which,  on  several occasions, have
 already  been  anathemized  by  preceding   Roman
 Pontiffs in their Apostolical Letters. We confirm
 the importance of such Letters and wish  them  to
 be followed with great care."
 Moreover,  from Gaete, the place of his exile, in
 his allocution: "Quibus Quantisque" addressed  to
 the  Consistory  of  April,  1849,  Pope  Pius IX
 renewed  the  identical   condemnation   in   the
 following terms:
 "Those abominable sects of perdition which are as
 fatally destructive of the salvation of souls  as
 of  the welfare and peace of secular society have
 been   condemned   by   Roman    Pontiffs,    Our
 predecessors;  We  have also personally condemned
 them  Ourselves  in  Our  Encyclical  Letter   of
 November 9, 1846, addressed to all the Bishops of
 the Catholic Church, yet today in virtue  of  Our
 Supreme  Catholic  Authority  -  We,  once again,
 condemn, forbid and anathematize them."
 The  Constitution  against  Freemasonry  and  the
 Secret Societies of which Pope Pius IX speaks are
 those of Popes Clement XII, Benedict XIV, Leo XII
 and  Pius  VIII;  he  adds his own of November 9,
 1846 (Qui Pluribus) in his letter to  Monseigneur
 Darboy,  October 26, 1865, concerning the funeral
 service of Marshall Magnan, Supreme Master of the
 Order   of   Freemasons;   he   adds   also,  his
 communication to the Bishop of Olinda (Brazil) of
 May 29, 1873.
 The renewed sentences of anathema by Pope Pius IX
 strike most particularly the satanism  of  secret
 societies.  In  his  Encyclical  of  November 21,
 1873, the Pope writes of them as the synagogue of
 satan,  and addressing its members he had already
 castigated them (Consistory of December 9,  1854)
 using to this effect, the words of Christ:
 "You  are  of your father the devil and the works
 of your father you will do."
 What are those works?  Satan  is  a  liar  and  a
 murderer  from  the  beginning  of the world, Our
 Lord tells us. Pope Pius IX denounced  the  great
 lie  of  the  so-called White Freemasonry, in his
 Allocution of  September  15,  1865  "Multiplices
 inter" when he says:
 "And  now,  in  order  to  satisfy the desire and
 solicitude of Our Fatherly Heart,  there  remains
 for  US  only to warn and exhort the Faithful who
 might have associated themselves to Sects of this
 kind  to  obey  wiser  inspirations  and to leave
 those  evil  assemblies  so  as  to  avoid  being
 dragged in the abyss of eternal ruin.
 "As  to  all  the  other  faithful, being full of
 solicitude for their souls,  WE  strongly  exhort
 them  to  beware  of the perfidious discourses of
 sectarians who, under a disguise of honesty,  are
 inflamed  by  an ardent hatred of the Religion of
 Christ and of all legitimate authority: they have
 but   one   thought   with   the   sole   aim  of
 exterminating, all Divine and human  rights.  Let
 them  all be fully conscious of the fact that the
 affiliates of such sects are as the  wolves  who,
 as Our Lord predicted, come disguised with sheeps
 hide to devour the whole flock: Let the  faithful
 know  that such affiliates must be numbered among
 those  with  whom  the  Apostle  forbade  us   to
 associate, telling us also to even avoid greeting
 Pope  Pius  IX  equally  denounced  the   satanic
 homicide of Red Masonry in a letter to the Bishop
 of Olinda (Brazil) in the following words:
 "The Satanic spirit of the Sect was  particularly
 evidenced, in the past century, during the course
 of the Revolutions  of  France  which  shook  the
 entire  world.  Such  upheavals  proved  that the
 total  dissolution  of  human  society  could  be
 expected unless the forces of this ultra criminal
 Sect were crushed."
 That letter was dated May 29,  1873;  the  latest
 Masonic  and  Satanic Revolution at that time was
 that which in Italy had resulted in  making  Pope
 Pius  IX  "the prisoner of the Vatican." It seems
 as though the Holy Pontiff was foreseeing such an
 issue  when  he  uttered his complaint concerning
 the  dual  failure  of  the  previous  Pontifical
 condemnations of Masonry. (September 15, 1865).
 First   he   referred   to  the  failure  of  the
 anti-Masonic endeavor thus:
 "However, the Apostolic See's  efforts  have  not
 been  crowned  with  the  success that might have
 been expected. The Masonic Sect of which we speak
 has  been  neither  defeated nor overthrown: just
 the reverse, the Sect has developed  to  such  an
 extent  that,  in these days of great difficulty,
 it shows itself everywhere and with impunity  and
 raises a more audacious countenance."
 Secondly,  the  Pope  outlined the failure of the
 Catholic side, thus:
 "Venerable Brethren,  We  feel  deep  sorrow  and
 bitterness,  when  We see that when, according to
 the Constitutions of Our Predecessors, action  is
 necessary  to  condemn this Masonic Sect, many of
 those whose functions and sacerdotal duty  should
 make  them ultra vigilant and ardent over such an
 important  cause  have,  alas!  shown  themselves
 indifferent  and  as though asleep. If some among
 them believe that  the  Apsotolic  Constitutions,
 published  under sentence of anathema against the
 Occult Sects and their adepts and initiates carry
 no   strength  in  those  countries  where  civil
 authorities  tolerate   them,   they   are   most
 assuredly laboring under a serious mistake."
 "As  you  well  know, Venerable Brethren, We have
 prohibited  and  We  again  today  prohibit   and
 condemn  this false evil doctrine. In fact let Us
 ask whether the Sovereign power 'To feed and lead
 the  universal  flock'  which was vested in Saint
 Peter  by  Jesus  and  through  which  the  Roman
 Pontiffs received the Supreme Authority that they
 must exercise in the Church  depends  from  civil
 power  --  can  such  civil  power  constrain and
 restrain them in anything whatever? Due to  those
 circumstances and fearing that injudicious people
 and above all, youth, might be led astray, and in
 order  that  silence  on  Our  part  might induce
 anyone to  lend  protection  to  error,  We  have
 resolved,   Venerable   Brethren,  to  raise  Our
 Apostolic Voice -- therefore, We  hereby  confirm
 before  you the Constitutions of Our Predecessors
 and in virtue of Our Apostolic Authority We  hold
 up  to  reprobation  and  We condemn this Masonic
 Society and all other societies of the same order
 which,  although  different  in  appearance,  but
 pursuing the  same  aim  against  the  Church  or
 legitimate   Civil  Power  are  constantly  being
 formed. It is Our order that  all  Christians  of
 any  standing  whatsoever,  of  any  rank or high
 appointment and over  all  the  earth  should  be
 informed  that  the  said Societies are forbidden
 and reproved by US, and incur the same  sentences
 and  condemnations as those that are specified in
 the former constitutions of our predecessors."
 Among the reproved  societies  must  be  included
 such  Leagues  as:  the  League  of  Human Rights
 (Ligue des Droits de L'homme) and the League  for
 Education (Ligue de l'Enseistnement ) .
 + Pope Leo XIII 1878-1903
 Pope  Leo  XIII,  successor  of  Pius  IX,   upon
 instructions  from  the Holy Office, dealt, first
 of all, with the Brazilian  Masonic  question  on
 July  2nd, 1878. Then later, addressing the whole
 Church,  on  April  20,  1884,  Pope   Leo   XIII
 published  his  magnificent  Encyclical  "Humanum
 Genus." Taking up once  again  Saint  Augustine's
 pages  concerning the two cities which, on earth,
 constitute the Kingdom of God and the Kingdom  of
 Satan,   the  Pontiff  reviews  the  considerable
 development  which  Freemasonry  has  taken   and
 "Today evil doers all seem allied in a tremendous
 effort inspired by and with the help of a society
 powerfully  organized  and widely spread over the
 world, it is the Society of Freemasons.  In  fact
 those  people  no  longer even try to dissimulate
 their intentions,  but  they  actually  challenge
 each  other's  audacity  in order to assail God's
 August Majesty.
 "It  is  now  publicly  and  overtly  that   they
 undertake  to  ruin  the  Holy  Church,  so as to
 succeed, if  it  is  possible,  in  the  complete
 dispossession  of  Christian  nations  of all the
 gifts they owe to Our Savior Jesus Christ.
 "As a result, in the space of  a  century  and  a
 half,   the  sect  of  the  Freemasons  has  made
 incredible progress. Making use at the same  time
 of  audacity and cunning, Masonry has invaded all
 the ranks of social hierarchy, and in the  modern
 States  it  has  begun  to seize a power which is
 almost equivalent to Sovereignty.
 In  order   to   strengthen   those   enlightened
 observations, Leo XIII refers to his predecessors
 and writes:
 "This peril was denounced for the first  time  by
 Pope  Clement  XII  in 1738, and the Constitution
 promulgated  by  that  Pope   was   renewed   and
 confirmed  by  Benedict XIV; Pius VII followed in
 the footsteps of those Pontiffs, and Pope Leo XII
 including  in  his  Apostolical Constitution 'Quo
 Graviora'  all  the  deeds  and  decrees  of  the
 preceding  Popes  on  that  subject, ratified and
 confirmed them for ever. Popes Pius VIII, Gregory
 XVI  and  on several occasions Pope Pius IX spoke
 in the same manner."
 Whereas  he  approved  and  confirmed   all   the
 Pontifical     condemnations    issued    against
 Freemasonry from those of Clement  XII  in  1738,
 Leo  XIII  moreover more amply exposed the reason
 for such actions and  gives  as  his  motive  for
 acting thus:
 "It  is because of the fundamental aim and spirit
 of the Masonic sect which  has  been  exposed  in
 full  light  through the evident manifestation of
 its  deeds,  the  acquired   knowledge   of   its
 principles,   its   rules,   its  rites  and  its
 commentaries  to  which  have  been   added   the
 testimonies of its own adepts . . .
 "It  is  exceedingly  important  to  bring to the
 notice of  all  peoples  to  what  extent  events
 confirmed  the  wisdom of our predecessors. Their
 foresight and paternal soticitude did not  always
 attain  the desired success. This failure must be
 ascribed  on  the  one   hand   either   to   the
 dissimulation  and cunning of men members of this
 pernicious sect or, on the  other  hand,  to  the
 imprudent  lightness  of  character  of those who
 should, however, have been highly  interested  in
 watching it attentively"
 Leo XIII refers frequently to the hypocrisy which
 is the basis of "White Freemasonry" and  mentions
 the  fatal  evolution  of  its revolutionary aims
 which turns it into "Red Masonry."
 Upon being attentively  studied  this  Encyclical
 most   strikingly   reveals  the  triple  Masonic
 character, namely that its aims are:
 *  Counter-Morality
 *  Counter-State
 *  Counter-Church
 1. Counter Morality
 The  Pope  defines  the  Masonic point of view on
 morality thus:
 "The only thing which has found grace before  the
 members  of  the  Masonic  sect and in which they
 request that  youth  should  receive  the  proper
 teaching  is  what  they  call  'Civic Morality',
 independent morality,  free  morality,  in  other
 words  a morality in which religious beliefs find
 no room. This morality is  insufficient  and  its
 effects are its own condemnation.
 "Furthermore there have been found in Freemasonry
 several sectarians who have maintained  that  all
 means are to be systematically used, in order, to
 saturate the multitudes with  licentiousness  and
 vices;  because  in  their  opinion peoples would
 naturally fall into their hands  and  become  the
 instruments  needed  for  the  accomplishment  of
 their  most   audacious   evil   projects.   Such
 counter-morality  is  that  of civil marriage, of
 divorce,  of  free  love   and   of   irreligious
 education for youth.
 "It  aims at the complete destruction of the main
 foundations of justice and honesty. In  this  way
 Freemasons  make  themselves  the  auxiliaries of
 those who wish that, like an animal, man  had  no
 other  rule  of  conduct  than his own desires --
 Such a scheme can only dishonor  human  kind  and
 ignominiously cast him into perdition."
 2. Counter State
 On  this  subject  Pope  Leo  XIII  foresaw  that
 Freemasonry,   "the   power   which   is   almost
 equivalent  to  sovereignty,"  and  which already
 occupied the place of "State within  the  State,"
 would  soon form the Super State. It is from such
 a situation that there  was  issued  the  Masonic
 dogma  of separation of Church and State; thence,
 issued also the anti-religious laws which Brother
 Bethmont,  member of Parliament of the department
 of Charente Inf'erieure and former  President  of
 the  Cour  Des Comptes, in 1878 was explaining to
 Monseigneur Pie, Bishop of Poitiers. The  prelate
 then  said  to  him:  "Sir, I believe you want to
 inaugurate anew the  fight  against  the  Church;
 have  you  any  hope  of  succeeding there, where
 Nero,  Julian  the  Apostate   and   your   great
 ancestors  of  the 1793 French Revolution failed?
 -- He replied:
 "Your Eminence, at the risk of seeming too  bold,
 I will say that those ,you have mentioned did not
 quite know how to act. We shall do  much  better.
 Violence  against  the  Church  leads nowhere, we
 shall  use  other  means.  We  shall  organize  a
 persecution which shall be both clever and legal;
 we shall surround the Church with  a  network  of
 laws, decrees and ordinances which will stifle it
 without shedding one drop of blood."
 Who, may I ask, is  making  those  closely  woven
 nets  of laws, decrees and ordinances? The State,
 of  course,  but  it  is  a  Masonic  State,   an
 irreligious  State  under  the  power  of a Super
 State which at the present moment is the Ruler of
 the World.
 When  Leo  XIII adjures his Venerable Brethren to
 unite their zeal to his own efforts in order, "to
 annihilate  the  impure  contagion  of the poison
 which flows in the veins  of  human  society  and
 causes  a state of total infection," it is with a
 feeling of fear that one brings to mind the death
 sentence   pronounced  against  humanity  in  the
 "Protocols of the Elders of Zion."
 "When we introduced into the State  organism  the
 poison   of   Liberalism   its   whole  political
 complexion underwent a change. States  have  been
 seized  with  a mortal illness -- bloodpoisoning.
 All that remains is to await  the  end  of  their
 death agony."
 Thus,  while  States  are  gravitating  toward  a
 Universal Republic, the  Super-State  becomes  an
 infrangible  dictature,  which  according  to its
 will grinds them down or else thoroughly  infects
 them; that Super State is called Judeo-Masonry.
 3. Counter Church
 Hence the supreme aim of the Sect, as it has been
 pointed out by the Popes, is none other than  the
 complete   destruction  of  the  Church  and  the
 Papacy. Pope Leo  XIII  persistently  underscores
 this rigorous consequence and says:
 "Since the proper and very special mission of the
 Catholic Church consists in the  safeguarding  of
 the   incorruptible   purity   of  the  doctrines
 revealed by God, as well as that  of  established
 authority  for their teaching and other God given
 help  for  the  salvation  of  mankind;   it   is
 inevitable  that  the  major  antagonism and most
 violent attacks of the Sect  should  be  directed
 against  the  Church . . . Therefore, even at the
 cost of  a  lengthy  and  opinionated  labor  the
 Sect's   purpose  is  to  reduce  to  naught  the
 teaching, and authority of the Church  among  the
 civilian population. . .
 "The   enmity   of  the  sectarians  against  the
 Apostolic See of the Roman Pontiff has  increased
 its intensity . . . until now the evil doers have
 reached the aim which had, for a long  time  that
 of their evil designs, namely, their proclamation
 that the moment has come to  suppress  the  Roman
 Pontiff's  sacred power and to completely destroy
 this Papacy which was divinely instituted."
 Lastly,  Leo  XIII  concludes  in  unmasking  the
 Satanism of Judeo-Masonry:
 "The   facts   which   we   have  reviewed  throw
 sufficient  light  upon  inner  constitution   of
 Freemasons  and  show  clearly  the road they are
 following in order to  reach  their  goal.  Their
 chief  dogmas  are  so  completely and manifestly
 opposed to sane reason that it  is  difficult  to
 imagine  deeper  perversion. In reality is it not
 the peak of madness and  of  the  most  audacious
 impiety  to  be  so  presumptuous  as  to want to
 destroy the religion and the  Church  created  by
 God   Himself:   and  assured  of  His  perpetual
 protection; and after 18  centuries  to  want  to
 replace  it  with the customs and institutions of
 "Still no less  horrible  nor  easy  to  bear  to
 witness  the repudiation of those gifts which, in
 His  mercy,  Jesus  Christ  bestowed   first   on
 individuals, then to human beings grouped both in
 families and in  nations.  Even  the  enemies  of
 Christianism  acknowledge  the  supreme  value of
 those gifts.
 "There is no denying that  in  this  foolish  and
 criminal  plan  it  is  easy  to  understand  the
 implacable hatred and passion for  revenge  which
 animate  Satan  toward Jesus Christ. We refuse to
 follow the dictates of  such  iniquitous  masters
 that  bear  the  names  of  Satan and of all evil
 + Pope Benedict XV 1914-1922
 War, Armistice, Peace, all took place  under  the
 Pontificate  of  Benedict  XV. In connection with
 our own viewpoint on Judeo-Masonry, we must point
 out  the  Papal  condemnation of Ludovic Keller's
 book: "Le Basi Spirituali Della Massone-Ria E  La
 Vita   Publica"  (The  spiritual  foundations  of
 Masonry and the life of the people) published  in
 1915.  That  book was condemned on June 15, 1916.
 Moreover, the letter from the Holy Office of  the
 Vatican  to  the  Ordinaries  called  upon  their
 vigilant  attention  because   of   special   new
 machinations  being directed against the Faith by
 anti-Catholic   associations.   The   association
 particularly  indicated  is  the  Y.M.C.A. (Young
 Men's  Christian  Association)  which   on   many
 occasions   has   been   singled   out  as  being
 fundamentally    Masonic    in     the     "Revue
 Internationale Des Societes Secretes." The letter
 from  the  Holy  Office  of  November   5,   1920
 particularly   mentions  that  according  to  its
 declaration of principles, the Y.M.C.A.  "Intends
 to  purify and spread a more perfect knowledge of
 real life placing itself above all  churches  and
 outside   and   religious   jurisdiction."   Such
 anticlerical transcendentalism is none other than
 the manifestation of Judeo-Masonry.
 Furthermore,  on  the  inside  cover of our Revue
 Internationale   Des   Societes   Secretes    are
 reproduced the two letters addressed to me by the
 Holy  See,  which  are  an  affirmation  of   the
 viewpoint which Pope Benedict XV held on Masonry,
 the   same   viewpoint    carrying    the    same
 condemnations    already    pronounced   by   his
 predecessors since Pope Clement XII.
 The two letters from  the  Vatican  are  herewith
 1. From Pope Benedict XV to Monseigneur Jouin:
 "Beloved  Son-Greetings  and  Apostolic Blessing.
 The eminent virtues which, in the course of  your
 long  sacerdotal career, you have shown with such
 resplendent light added to the high consideration
 in  which  you are held by Our Venerable Brother,
 Jauvier Granito di Belmonte, Cardinal of the Holy
 Roman  Church,  Bishop  of Albano, as also by the
 Cardinal Archbishop of Paris, have  prompted  Our
 decision to honor you with a great homage.
 "We  do  know that you fulfill the obligations of
 your  sacred  ministry  in  the  most   exemplary
 manner;  that you have the most ardent solicitude
 for the eternal salvation  of  the  faithful  and
 that  with  constancy and courage you have upheld
 the rights of the Catholic  Church  --  and  have
 done  so  even at the peril of your own life. You
 have worked against the enemies of  religion  and
 We  know that you spare neither work nor expenses
 to spread among the people your  great  works  on
 those questions . . ."
 2.  From  His  Eminence  Cardinal Gasparri (State
 Secretary of His Holiness) to  Monseigneur  Jouin
 on June 20, 1919.
 "The   Sovereign   Pontiff   with   his  paternal
 benevolence has accepted the homage of  your  new
 study  on  'La  guerre  Maconnique'  (The Masonic
 "It is with unerring judgment that  in  the  work
 which you have undertaken, you have endeavored to
 project light,  by  means  of  documentation  and
 irrefutable    proofs,   upon   the   inept   and
 essentially     anti-Catholic     doctrine     of
 Freemasonry, a doctrine issued from deism born of
 the Reformation, a doctrine which, as it is today
 clearly evident, leads fatally to the very denial
 of  God,  to  social  atheism,   to   irreligious
 teaching  and  impiety and is greatly detrimental
 to  nations;  it  aims  at  removing  from  every
 association  every  trace  of  religion and every
 church mediation.
 "Above all, in spite of all lies which oftentimes
 deceive   the   Catholics  themselves,  you  have
 carefully and most particularly clearly shown the
 identity  of  Freemasonry  evident everywhere and
 always, and the continuity of the  plans  set  by
 the   Sects   and  whose  master  design  is  the
 destruction of the Catholic Church.
 "His Holiness takes  pleasure  in  congratulating
 you  and  encouraging  your  work whose influence
 can, indeed, be so fruitful. It  can  induce  the
 faithful  to  be  vigilant and help them to fight
 efficaciously against everything tending  to  the
 destruction  of  the  social  order as well as of
 "As evidence of the celestial gifts bestowed upon
 you   and   as   a   testimony  of  his  paternal
 benevolence, the  Holy  Father,  from  his  heart
 bestows upon you the Apostolic Blessing.
 "Thanking,  you  also  for  the copy of your book
 which  you  graciously  sent  me,  and  with   my
 personal  congratulations, I pray you to believe,
 Monseigneur, in  the  assurance  of  my  complete
 + Pope Pius X 1903-1914
 Pope St. Pius X 1903-1914
 Pope Pius X, successor of Pope Leo XIII, gave his
 greater attention to Sillonisme and to Modernism,
 but,   nevertheless   he   did   not  forget  the
 destructive work of Freemasonry. He requested the
 Polish   people   to  abstain  from  joining  any
 conspiracy schemed by the malevolent Sects.
 Later he extended words  of  consolation  to  the
 faithful of France in the following words:
 "And  now it is to you, Catholics of France, that
 We speak; may Our words reach you as a  testimony
 of  the  tender  feeling  of  Our  love  for your
 country and as a consolation in the midst of  the
 terrible  calamities through which you must pass.
 You are well aware of the  self-assigned  aim  of
 the  impious  sectarians  who hare subjugated you
 under  their  yoke.  With  cynic  audacity   they
 themselves proclaimed their aim which was 'Uproot
 Catholicism in France.' They  want  to  extirpate
 from your hearts, namely its last root, the Faith
 which covered  your  ancestors  with  glory;  the
 Faith  which  brought prosperity and greatness to
 your Fatherland amidst  all  other  nations;  the
 Faith  which will be your support in the hours of
 your tribulation, which maintains calm and  peace
 in  your  homes  and opens for you the way toward
 eternal happiness. It is  this  Faith  which  you
 yourselves feel has to be defended."
 Lastly,  Pius  X  loudly  affirms  that as he has
 lifted his voice:
 "It is  not  the  Church  who  first  raised  the
 standard,  she  did  so only because war had been
 declared against her. For the last 25  years  she
 has  only  had  to bear the struggle. Such is the
 Truth. Declarations, a thousand  times  published
 and  republished  in the Press, in congresses, in
 Masonic  conventions,  in  the  very   halls   of
 Parliament,  are proof in themselves that attacks
 against the Church have  been  led  progressively
 and  systematically.  Such facts cannot be denied
 and against them mere words cannot prevail . . ."
 (From letter of Pope Pius X to France, January 6,
 Fundamentally just as did his predecessors,  Pius
 X  denounces the maneuvers of the Counter-Church,
 moreover in his Letter  of  condemnation  of  the
 SILLON,  he  deliberately  designates the Masonic
 lodges in the following terms:
 "We all but too well know the  dens  of  darkness
 wherein those pernicious doctrines are elaborated
 . . . Clear minds should not be seduced by them."
 (From  letter  of Pius X to the French Episcopate
 August 25, 1910.)
 + Pope Pius XI 1922
 For  the  first  time  the  word "Laicism" (which
 means irreligious teaching) is to be found  in  a
 Pontifical  document;  it is the fatal and sought
 for result of both the Masonic doctrine  and  its
 direct  action. This fact allows me to add to the
 list of all the Sovereign Pontiffs who  denounced
 and  condemned  Judeo-Masonry;  the  name  of our
 present Pope, Pius XI, in his Encyclical "Maximam
 grasissimamque"  of  July 18, 1924, the Pope most
 clearly has lifted his  voice  against  "Laicism"
 (irreligious teaching) in the following terms:
 "Whatetier   Pius  X  did  condemn,  We  likewise
 condemn it. Every time that  the  word  'Laicite'
 (irreligious   teaching)  is  used  to  convey  a
 feeling or an intention contrary  or  foreign  to
 God  or religion, We condemn it. We fully reprove
 this 'Laicism' and We openly declare that it must
 be reproved."
 In my own case, during the private audience which
 on  November  16,  1923,  he  granted   me,   His
 Holiness,  Pius XI, asked me to continue my fight
 against Freemasonry because, said he:
 "Masonry is our mortal enemy."
 Later, as  I  was  recollecting  the  kind  words
 addressed to me by Pope Benedict XV in the decree
 "With constancy and courage you have  upheld  the
 rights  of  the  Catholic Church and have done so
 even at the peril of your life." and adding  that
 so  far  I  had  not  yet  become  the  victim of
 Freemasons, His Holiness replied  in  a  paternal
 "Did  not  Saint  Augustine, who is the patron of
 your parish in Paris, speak of the martyrs of the
 pen?  (The  Parish of which Monseigneur Jouin was
 head for many  years  and  until  his  death  was
 called Saint Augustine.)
 Such  a  denunciation of "Laicism" as well as the
 encouragement given  me  to  continue  the  fight
 against    Masonry    confirm    the   Pontifical
 condemnations pronounced since Pope Clement  XII;
 it  also  follows  the inspired words of Pope Leo
 "In the realm of spiritual salvation, there is no
 middle  way:  one  either  follows  the  road  to
 perdition or else fights  without  limit  to  the
 very end."
 Therefore,  our  conclusion  is contained in just
 two words: unity of  purpose  and  viewpoint  and
 unity  of  action shown by the Sovereign Pontiffs
 in regard to Freemasonry. Fifteen years after the
 publication  of  the Constitutions of Anderson in
 1723,  there  appeared   the   constitution   "In
 Eminenti"  of Pope Clement XII April 28, 1738. Is
 there in the history of the Church a heresy which
 met  with such a swift condemnation? Another fact
 equally remarkable is that all  the  Popes  based
 their  ulterior  condemnations on this Pontifical
 act of Clement XII showing clearly that there was
 but one Voice, but one cry of disapproval when it
 came to pronounce  the  anathema  against  Secret
 Societies  and  striking  their  members with the
 most rigorous censure which the Church can apply.
 Even though incomplete, here follows  a  list  of
 documents as proof of the above:
   * Clement XII: In Eminenti -- April 28, 1738
   * Benedict XIV: Providas -- March 16, 1751
   * Clement XIII: A. Quodie -- Sept. 14, 1758
   * Clement XIII: Ut Primum -- Sept. 3, 1759
   * Clement XIII: Christianae Reipublicae Salus
     -- Nov. 25, 1766
   * Pius VI: Inscrutabile -- Dec. 25, 1775
   * Pius VII: Ecclesiam a Jesu Christo -- Sept.
     14, 1820
   * Leo XII: Quo Graviora -- March 13, 1826
   * Pius VII: Traditi -- May 21, 1829
   * Gregory XVI: Mirari Vos -- Aug. 15, 1832
   * Pius IX: Qui Pluribus -- Nov 9, 1846
   * Pius IX: Omnibus Quantisque -- April 20,
   * Pius IX: Multiplices Inter -- Sept 25,
   * Leo XIII: Humanum Genus -- April 20, 1884
   * Leo XIII: Letter to Italian Episcopate --
     Dec. 8, 1892
   * Leo XIII: Letter to the Italian People --
     Dec. 8, 1892
   * Pius X: Vehementer -- Feb 11, 1906
   * Pius X: Letter to France -- Jan 6, 1907
 Add to this the condemnation of the  Y.M.C.A.  by
 the Holy Office, Nov. 5, 1920 and also the decree
 through which I was made  a  Prelate,  signed  by
 Pope  Benedict  XV,  followed  by  the  Letter of
 Cardinal  Gasparri,  praising  my  book:   Guerre
 Maconnique (Masonic War). Then again remember the
 Encyclical  of  His  Holiness  Pius  XI   against
 irreligious   teaching   in   schools   and   his
 encouragement    to    me    to    continue    my
 anti-Judeo-Masonic  fight, and you will thus have
 before you a chain whose  links  are  inseparably
 It is this unity of viewpoints which demonstrates
 that the Papacy has but  one  voice  and  is  the
 judiciary power of those Societies which actually
 form the whole of Judeo-Masonry.
 As to the unity of action of  the  Popes,  it  is
 also worthy of attention. Ever since 1738 all the
 Sovereign Pontiffs  have  denounced,  stigmatized
 and  condemned  the  great  harlot  of  the  20th
 century, that "Well  of  Perdition,"  "Bottomless
 Abyss of Misery which was dug by those conspiring
 Societies in which the Heresies and  Sects  have,
 it may be said, vomited as in a privy, everything
 they held  in  their  insides  of  Sacrilige  and
 Blasphemy." (Leo XIII.)
 Ever   since  1738  all  the  Sovereign  Pontiffs
 denounced, stigmatized and condemned the enemy of
 the  State  which,  according  to  Pope Leo XIII,
 already during  the  past  century,  possessed  a
 power  almost  equivalent  to  "Sovereignty"  and
 which, toady, calls itself the Super-State.
 Ever  since  1738  all  the  Sovereign   Pontiffs
 denounced, stigmatized and condemned the enemy of
 the Church, the Counter-Church, whose  proclaimed
 aim is to:
 "Decatholicize the world"
 It seeks to rebuild on the ashes of the Christian
 civilization the pagan barbarism, and to build on
 the  ruins  of the Papacy the world domination of
 Israel; furthermore, as a sign of its victory, it
 wants  to  erect  over  the  overthrown throne of
 Jesus Christ the very throne of Satan.
 Ever  since  1738  all  the  Sovereign   Pontiffs
 denounced,  stigmatized  and  condemned  what has
 hitherto   become   the   world   evolution    of
 Judeo-Masonry  which,  now, on earth, admits that
 it has but one adversary,  namely,  the  Catholic
 Church, whose agony it is now witnessing.
 However,    the   Popes   equally   deplore   the
 indifference of those Catholics who fail  to  see
 Their   silent  tears  and  fail  to  heed  Their
 heart-rending appeals; they constitute a race  of
 people  indifferent  and asleep, a string of Mute
 Hounds, afraid, of whom Pope Clement XIII, said:
 "If We  allow  ourselves  to  be  shaken  by  the
 audacity   of   evil-doers,  then  the  Episcopal
 strength is come  to  an  end;  the  sublime  and
 divine  authority of the Church no longer exists;
 it is then useless  to  look  upon  ourselves  as
 Christians  if  we have sunk so low as to tremble
 before  the  threats  of  the   snares   of   the
 Being  anxious  to  be  neither  indifferent  nor
 asleep, nor again a  Mute  Hound  in  the  Church
 Militant,  but to be on the contrary, even though
 from afar, linked to the dogs of  the  Lord,  the
 "Dominicani"  of  whom  in the 13th century spoke
 Jeanne d'Aza, mother of Saint Dominique,  at  the
 time   of   the   Church   struggle  against  the
 Albigenses; in order also not to be counted among
 the  cowards  who  flee  from the battlefield and
 whom, when in 1870  the  Germans  invaded  France
 Saint  Bernadette  said:  "I  fear  only  the bad
 Christians" for such reasons I founded the "Revue
 Internationale  Des  Societes Secretes." I, today
 also want to thank all the companions who in this
 struggle,  both in work and in prayer have allied
 themselves  with  my   humble   but   persevering
 Yes!  let  us of the league of St. Michael remain
 united in prayer for the conversion of Masons and
 Jews.  Let us be united in our efforts to respond
 to  the  concordant  voice   of   the   Sovereign
 Pontiffs,  in  order to destroy, inasmuch as lies
 in our  possibilities,  the  Judeo-Masonic  Sect.
 When  will this be? In God's own hour which seems
 to be very close. What can be done  against  this
 world power? Everything!
 In  the strength of Him who bears on His shoulder
 the  invincible  sign  of  His  power;   we   can
 accomplish  everything  in  the  power of Him who
 Christianized the world and which,  in  the  end,
 Judeo-Masonry,  can  neither  de-Christianize nor
 re-Paganize -- Yes! we can accomplish  everything
 in  the  strength  of Him whose Holy Sepulchre or
 the  dome  of  Saint  Peter  in  Rome  cannot  be
 darkened  by  the  shadows  cast  by  the Masonic
 Lodges  --  the  Kabbalistic  mysteries  of   the
 Ghettos  will  not  alter  a  single  iota of the
 Gospel or of the Credo; the accumulation of  gold
 in  the  hands  of high finance will ever fail to
 buy the conscience of Christ's representative  in
 the Vatican.
 Vade  Satana!  Get  thee behind me Satan with thy
 legions of  rebellious  angels,  with  thy  early
 workers of iniquity the Judeo-Masons!
 Christ is near! To-day He comes! Tomorrow He will
 be here!
 Let us therefore say, according to the  words  of
 Saint  Augustine:  Dicamus In Fide, let us say in
 the full energy of our faith; Dicamus In Spe: let
 us  say  in  the  strength  of  our hope; Dicamus
 Flagfantissima  Caritate:  Let  us  say  in   the
 burning fervor of our charity:
 If  God  is  with us, who can prevail against us?
 (Si Deus Pro Nobis, Quis Contra Nos?)
 God is with us in this fight, which is our fight,
 the fight of the Papacy against Judeo-Masonry.
