  • From the Fatima Crusader. No one who reads this can deny that the Vatican was taken over by Freemasons.

    Editor’s Note: The following is an edited transcript of a speech given at the Fatima Peace Conference in Rome, October 2001.

            Our Lady of Fatima said that Russia will spread her errors throughout the world. What are the errors of Russia? If we consider — as is documented by Father Manfred Adler in his work Die Antichristliche Revolution der Freimaurerei, which is in English The Anti-Christian Revolution of Freemasonry — all the great leaders of Communist revolutions in the early 20th Century were members of the Freemasonic sect. They were acknowledged and praised as such by their brothers in the lodge.

    Masonic Infiltration of the Vatican

            "The errors of Russia are the errors of Freemasonry. The late Malachi Martin, in one of his books, made mention of the fact — he said it was ironic — that of all the governments of the world, the Vatican seemed to be the place where Masonry was most entrenched, more entrenched than in the secular governments of the world.

            There is a law in Italy that the secret society of Masonry must have a registry of their members. And in that registry one finds the names of some high-ranking ecclesiastics in the Vatican.

            When Saint Maximilian Kolbe first came to Rome, in 1917, he saw a parade, a public manifestation of Masons. They were carrying placards and on their placards it was written, "Satan will rule from the Vatican. The Pope will be his slave." How would they bring that about? What was their program? It was the Freemasons themselves who declared with the utmost arrogance "we are going to destroy the Church by means of holy obedience."

            This means, they very clearly expressed, their intention to infiltrate into the ranks of the hierarchy to gain positions of authority and to promote the program and policies of Freemasonry; and to enforce it by abusing the God-given office of ecclesiastical authority. The authority given by Christ to rule according to the law of God and to promote the kingdom of God on earth would be transformed, perverted. That office, they announced, would be used to propagate what they themselves call the counterchurch, the antichurch.

            When Our Lady of Fatima said that the errors of Russia would be spread throughout the world, it could not be understood so well at the time. The three children, at that time, certainly did not know what were the errors of Russia. When Sister Lucy wrote her memoirs she, of course, clearly understood what were the principal errors of Russia.

            What is in the Third Secret reveals more still. Father Joaquin Alonso spoke of the Third Secret in terms of the failures, the deficiencies of the upper hierarchy of the Church.

            Sister Lucy was always ready to correct when anyone made a public pronouncement about the Third Secret that was erroneous. Her silence is conspicuous. She never made any correction of the pronouncements on the Third Secret of Father Alonso, who was the official peritus appointed to gather together the documents concerning the apparitions of Our Lady of Fatima. Father Alonso said that the Third Secret would vindicate those in the Church who are referred to as Traditionalists. Sister Lucy never made any correction of that statement. It is true. It is correct.

            A friend of mine, an Italian priest, had, some years ago, a great pile of issues of a magazine that is not well known outside of Italy but is well known to the clergy of Italy. The magazine is called Chiesa Viva. My friend was reading to me from the pages of that magazine a document going back to the 1920’s, how Freemasonry, in their own document, told what changes they were going to instigate to take place in the Sacred Liturgy.

            After Vatican II, the changes that were made in the Sacred Liturgy were exactly, point for point, the fulfilment, the carrying out, the execution of the program announced in the 1920’s by the Freemasons.

            The changes that were made in the Roman liturgy were the changes prescribed behind the doors of the Freemasonic lodges. As Malachi Martin said, Masonry is entrenched in the Vatican.

            The errors of Russia are the errors of Masonry. But who could ever have thought that the instrument to propagate the errors of Russia would be those Modernist clerics who unworthily hold high positions of authority in the Holy See.

            I, obviously, cannot mention any names. One source of mine, inside the Vatican, who is a high-ranking prelate, told me years ago, "Our hands are tied. We can do nothing. It is Freemasons who hold the key positions."

    The Party Line

            Vladimir Ilyich Lenin once said, "The lie is sacred and deception will be our principal weapon." So it is not going to be any surprise if we look at all the back issues of Pravda, when it was the official organ of the Soviet Communist Party, when Russia was, at the time, known as the Soviet Union; we see that Pravda was filled with lies.

            Now what is the meaning of the name pravda? Truth! Here is the newspaper whose name is "truth", and page after page was always filled with lies. This is not a surprise. Lenin said, "the lie is sacred and deception will be our principal weapon".

            Now I cannot convince you that I am telling the truth if I wear a big placard on my chest that says "Liar!". If I tell you "I am a liar, and as a liar please believe me now, what I’m going to tell you is the truth," I don’t think even a fool would believe me because this is something that is so obviously absurd.

            So for the man for whom the lie is sacred, in order to convince his hearers that he is telling the truth, he must first redefine truth. The Scripture says, pronouncing the curse in the book of Isaias, "Woe to you that call evil good, and good evil: that put darkness for light, and light for darkness". [Is. 5:20] The darkness of falsehood is given the appearance of truth, the light of truth. This is one of the principal errors of Russia.

            It did not start with Russia, it did not start with the Communists, it began with the devil. St. Paul speaks of the devil under the guise of the angel of light. To be more specific, he refers to the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ: "But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach a gospel to you besides that which we have preached to you, let him be anathema." [Gal. 1:8] It is the devil, appearing under the guise of the angel of light, who gives the appearance of truth in order to deceive by means of the lie. This is where the error "the lie is sacred" and "falsehood is truth" originated.

            I remember I was talking with General Daniel Graham, a general in the US Army. He said that he had once been in Russia with a Soviet official and the Soviet official asked him, "Don’t you want peace?" And he answered, "No! Because I know how you define peace. I know what is your definition of peace. I do not want that." Just as they were talking, they drove by a huge billboard that showed soldiers with their rifles. And there was the big caption "Pobieda kommunista eta mir". Which is, in English, "Communist Victory is Peace."

            Now, according to Communist doctrine, (Marxist teaching) you wage war and make revolution and you use every possible means of deception — total war — in order to subjugate the entire world, to conquer the entire world, and make the entire world Communist. And once war has been waged and Communism is victorious on the entire planet, then you have what is called "peace". And so Lenin said "even if you must destroy 3/4 of the world, that doesn’t matter, as long as the surviving 1/4 of the world is Communist." This is the Communist definition of peace. What is peace in reality? It is best defined by St. Augustine. "Peace is the tranquillity of order."

            Which definition is correct? It is not a matter of subjective evaluation. St. Thomas Aquinas explains "ens et verum convertunter", which is a scholastic way of saying that truth is convertible with reality. That which is objectively real is objectively true.

            We all see the color white. But if it were to promote the Communist revolution for me to say that white is black, then, according to Communist doctrine, white is black. What is truth? According to Marxist doctrine, truth is that which promotes the Communist revolution. That is truth. What is it that promotes the Communist revolution? That which has been decided to be the Party Line. What the Party dictates to be true, that is true. If the Party tells you that black is white, then that is what you must believe, because it has been decided by the Party.

            Now we can begin to see how the errors of Russia are being spread through the world through the agency of the Vatican’s Secretariat of State."

  • Here's the part about Archbishop LeFebvre having the right to dis-obey the Vatican.

                          When Obedience is Sinful

            "All too often we hear people say "You must obey. Your bishop is your superior, you must obey him."

            If you look in any of the approved manuals of moral theology, you will find in Prummer, Merkelbach and all the others, what is called the "sin of indiscreet obedience". Sometimes obedience is not a virtue. This is the Catholic moral doctrine. Sometimes it is a sin to obey. If in a poor family, for example, a father commands his daughter to sell her body in prostitution, she is obligated by the law of God to resist and to disobey her legitimate superior, her father.

            And if a bishop commands a priest to violate the civil and ecclesiastical law, it is impossible for him to obey. Because if he obeys, he commits a sin. That is Catholic moral teaching. We must have a Catholic understanding of obedience. When Archbishop Lefebvre was commanded by his bishop to close down his seminary, his objection was: the command is illegally, canonically null and void. It’s as plain as the light of day. And he quoted the canon, he quoted the law of the Church which said that for such an institution as his, only Rome, only the Vatican — that is, the competent authority in Rome — had the power to issue a decree suppressing the seminary.

            But the Vatican balked at doing that. They refused to issue that command. They delegated the authority, but they did not have the power to delegate that authority because it was specified by the law itself that the higher Roman authority was the only one that could give this order. So the order was illegal, it was invalid. Archbishop Lefebvre had every right before God and before man to disobey, because it was an unlawful command.

            What was the local bishop’s answer? It’s an answer that I will never forget. Archbishop Lefebvre quoted it. He explained what the local bishop said to him: "Obedience, obedience, obedience! The council, the council, the council!" This is mindless.

            So often whenever a priest resists an abuse of power of a superior, people who lack understanding will say "but Father, the Church is not a democracy. You must obey your superiors because the Church is a hierarchy. You are the subject, your bishop is your superior, you must obey."

            What these people do not understand is that those who resist unlawful orders have no illusions about the Church being a democracy. It is not a democratic principle, it is a point of law. It is certainly true that the Church is not a democracy, but at the same time, the Church is not a dictatorship. The Church is indeed a hierarchy, which, therefore, the Church is governed by laws according to the principle of subsidiarity.

            In a properly ordered hierarchy you have supreme authority. And in the Roman Catholic Church the Supreme Pontiff, the Roman Pontiff, has the plenitudo potestatis, the fullness of power. He does not have absolute power but he has the supreme power on earth, universal jurisdiction over the entire Church and over every individual soul. He delegates authority to those who are under him. Those he promotes to the rank of bishop, he assigns them their proper jurisdiction. And under the bishops, the priests are assigned their canonical mission and they are given their proper jurisdiction. And according to the laws, from the laws regarding the powers, responsibilities, rights, and prerogatives of the highest authority or the lowest curate, parochial assistants, lay persons, all have rights defined and established by law.

            Each one has his own proper sphere of authority and responsibility and is to exercise his responsibilities and authority in accordance with the law of the Church and the moral doctrine of Jesus Christ our Lord. If they step beyond the boundaries of either of these, they abuse their authority, they exceed their authority, and they have no power to command what is beyond the limitations of their authority. St. Thomas Aquinas explains that one is not obligated to obey if one is not subject to the law, and one would not be subject to the law if one is not under the jurisdiction of that legislator or if the law or precept is beyond the authority of that lawgiver.

            If Father Gruner, for example, as he is incardinated in the Archdiocese of Hyderabad, is pronounced suspended by the Bishop of Avellino, who is not his bishop — Father Gruner is not a subject of the Bishop of Avellino — he is not subject to obey that law because the Bishop of Avellino has no jurisdiction over Father Gruner.

            If the Cardinal Archbishop of New York City were to command Father Gruner to take up residence in the city of New York, where he has his jurisdiction, Father Gruner’s answer would be "but Your Eminence, you have no jurisdiction over me. I don’t belong to your diocese, I don’t have to obey you. I obey my bishop."

            St. Thomas Aquinas explains that you do not have to obey commands or persons to whom you are not subject. There are limitations to obedience. They are limited by the boundaries and definitions of authority in accordance to that principle of subsidiarity. Those who are under the ecclesiastical governance of the Roman Pontiff are assigned their limited sphere of authority. And under them, there are those who have further limited authority. But each one must govern according to that degree of power that is given to them, which is rooted in the power given by Christ Himself.

            Here we have the Catholic understanding of obedience. It is something limited. Dictatorship is something entirely different. The Church is a divine institution constituted as a perfect society. The Church, therefore, is not a dictatorship but is properly governed according to Catholic moral doctrine and ecclesiastical law. According to Church law and moral theology, Father Gruner cannot be obliged to obey, nor can he be validly penalized for non-compliance with an unlawful command. He cannot be penalized because it is very clearly expressed in the Code of Canon Law, Canon 221 section 3, "Christ’s faithful have the right that no canonical penalties be inflicted upon them except in accordance with the law."

            That also includes a universal statute of the Church that we call Canon 22 which says that the Church assumes the obligation of the pertinent civil laws. The civil law of the Italian Republic requires proper documentation and issuance of a visa for permanent residence. If that is not granted, then Father Gruner cannot obey without violating the law of the Church and therefore violating the law of God. It would be a sin for him to obey. But he has been commanded by the hierarchs of the Roman Curia to commit the sin of violating the law of the Church, to disregard the law of God, and to do what they tell him to do. This is what we call dictatorship."

  • You know this is very good, so first of all,  thanks SS.

    Second of all, it was a master plan the mason's put in place. Think about it. It would be natural for the church not to speak at any extensive length or more than required on the topic of obedience, or in this case, disobedience, to those in the the Church Hierarchy if they are in error. The masons Knew this, hence the "we are going to destroy the Church by means of holy obedience."

    Its just so sad. If you tried to show this to Neo-Caths, they either wouldn't believe it, or say they (the masons) weren't successful.
