Continuing with “Vatican II Exposed as Counterfeit Catholicism” by Frs. Francisco and Dominic Radecki, CMRI:
The ultimate goal of Freemasonry is to destroy the Catholic Church and create a society free from God. On May 1, 1776, Adam Weishaupt, founded a secret society called the Illuminati to bring down “the corrupt Catholic Church,” and establish in its stead a godless, humanistic, New World Order. They are Satan’s agents, responsible to a great degree for the secularization of society and the changes of belief and worship mandated by Vatican II. Devastating effects of Freemasonry on society are disbelief, moral relativity, rebellion against authority, and indifference or hatred towards God, the commandments, and Church teaching. A letter by Piccolo Tigre (Little Tiger) of 1822, said: “…It is of absolute necessity to de-Catholicize the world…The Revolution in the Church is the Revolution en permanence.”
Freemasonic and Communist leaders encouraged members to infiltrate the Church in return for fame or power. They made devastating changes that shook the Church to its foundation.
At Caudebec [France] fifteen out of eighty members of the lodge were priests; at Sens [France], twenty out of fifty. Canons and parish priests sat in the Venerable Assembly, while the Cistercians of Clairvaux had a lodge in the very walls of their monastery. Saurine, the future bishop of Strasbourg under Napoleon, was among the governing members of the Grand Orient. We cannot be far from the truth in suggesting that towards the year 1789 a quarter of French Freemasons were churchmen…
With dedicated members around the world, infiltration of the Catholic Church was not as difficult as it may appear. During the twentieth century, a number of bishops and cardinals were [alleged] Freemasons including Rampolla, Roncalli (John XXIII), Lienart, Bugnini, Villot, Suenens, Baggio, and Casaroli. These men, and others from around the world, worked tirelessly to achieve the Freemasonic goal of creating a New Church from the chaos caused by Vatican II. Loyalty to the Lodge supersedes fidelity to God and family.
Freemasons worked tirelessly to get one of their own to occupy the Throne of Peter to destroy the Church from within. Yves Marsaudon, a member of the Supreme Council of France, Scottish Rite Freemasonry, said, “the goal is no longer the destruction of the Church, but to make use of it by infiltrating it.” The Vente Supreme of the Carbonari taught, “Our final object and aim is that of Voltaire and the French Revolution: The Total Annihilation forever of Catholicity and of all ideas of Christianity.” 33rd degree Freemason, Albert Lantoine, wrote a pamphlet called A Letter to the Sovereign Pontiff stating:
We are freethinkers—you are believers. Freemasonry seeks to exalt man; the Church to exalt God. We are the servants of Satan. You, the guardians of truth, are the servants of God.
