Cardinal Leo(n) Jozef Suenens, Charismatic, Freemason and Liberal
“Lest there be any place for error when decision will have to made as to what the opinions of these pernicious sects are, which are under such prohibition, it is especially certain that Freemasonry and other sects of this kind which plot against the Church and lawful powers, whether they do this secretly or openly, whether or not they exact from their followers an oath to preserve secrecy, are condemned by automatic excommunication.” -Instruction of the Holy Office, May 10, 1884
“Those who give their name to (who are members of) the Masonic sect, or other societies of the same nature, that scheme against the Church or lawful civil authority, ipso facto (automatically) contract excommunication [the absolution from which is] reserved to the Holy See.” -Canon 2335, 1917 Code of Canon Law
It is almost impossible for one to imagine that the most prominent hierarch of the Catholic Charismatic Renewal was a Freemason.
Over the years, I had received a number of snail mails and emails providing me with documentation that it was indeed true. But I dismissed it as Traditionalist hype and even published a critical report (now pulled) on this website on one of the individuals who had sent me the information in both hard and soft copy. However, after studying the books of and about the research conducted by Italian priest Dr. Fr. Luigi Villa, who we will read further below, a man with impeccable credentials and closely associated with St. Padre Pio, the eminent Cardinal Ottaviani, Pope Pius XII and the renowned Dr. Dietrich von Hildebrand and his wife Alice, I am fully convinced that it is indeed true that Suenens was a Mason.
Leon Cardinal Joseph Suenens
(1904-1996), Archbishop (1961-1979) of Brussels-Malines in Belgium
was the author of many books including
A New Pentecost, Your God? and Open the Frontiers and Renewal and the Powers of Darkness.
He was one of the Cardinal electors who participated in the 1963 conclave that elected Pope Paul VI. He was given a special mandate by Paul VI, confirmed again by John Paul II, to oversee the worldwide charismatic renewal movement in the Catholic Church. After his death, Belgian police drilled into his tomb searching for documents connected to the sex abuse scandal which had supposedly been buried with the cardinal (http://www.medindia.net/news/Police-Sex-Abuse-Cover-Up-Raid-on-Belgian-Cardinals-Tombs-Slammed-by-Vatican-70574-1.htm).
He is the individual responsible for the introduction of the practice of distributing communion in the hand.
Paul VI made him one of the four moderators of the Second Vatican Council. He was believed to be a decisive force behind the Conciliar documents Lumen gentium and Gaudium et spes.
Among the causes he advocated at the Council were dialogue with other Christian denominations as well as with other religions, the ordination of married men to serve as deacons, mandatory retirement for bishops, modernization of the garb and lifestyle of women religious, collegiality, religious liberty
etc. He was also committed to the spirit of ecumenism and pushed for renewed ties with other branches of Christianity and with Judaism.
“In 1970 he renewed his criticism, insisting that the hierarchy should be free to debate opening the priesthood to married men. This time Pope Paul VI, without mentioning Cardinal Suenens, expressed “grieved astonishment” at those who criticized papal policies.” (http://www.nytimes.com/1996/05/07/world/leo-joseph-cardinal-suenens-a-vatican-ii-leader-dies-at-91.html)
During the Council’s debates on marriage, Suenens accused the Church of holding procreation above conjugal love. Pope Paul was greatly distressed by this and the Cardinal later denied “that he had questioned the authentic Church teaching on marriage”.
Suenens was a champion of the Catholic Charismatic Renewal and the man believed to have been responsible for convincing Pope Paul VI in 1975 to give the Church’s approval to the Charismatic Renewal. Cardinal Suenens wrote many books on the subject, one of which was entitled, Resting in the Spirit: A Controversial Phenomenon. (See also page 8)

It is not flattering that Suenens was awarded the Templeton Prize.
The Focolari Movement and its international ramifications
By Dr. Regina Hinrichs, October 1997
The Templeton prize was instituted in 1972 by Sir John Templeton (died July 2008) and awarded each year since 1973.
Sir John Templeton instituted his prize to be the religious counterpart of the Nobel Prize. The latter has for aim to honor the progress in the natural sciences. Similarly, the Templeton prize encourages the “progress in religion”.
The presentation brochure of the Templeton foundation define clearly the meaning of “progress in religion”: since we note that there exists a progress in all that which pertains to human experience and effort, the same thing must happen in religious matter. Moreover, since in other domains, we witness an always more accelerated progress, it is necessary to expect the same phenomenon in the field of religion: a universe which does not cease to broaden requires a broadening religious conscience, new cultural horizons and new spiritual liberties.
Therefore, the intention for which this prize is given is clear: it is to reward the work accomplished for the conquest of the liberty of conscience in religious matters and to stimulate the initiatives of the pioneers in this domain. Thus, are judged worthy of interest, no matter from what religion they proceed, all efforts made in order to arrive at a deeper spiritual conscience or at a better understanding of what is the meaning of life, as well as all enterprises inspiring dedication and love or orienting man’s life towards God so that he finds there new creative energies.
The brochure emphasizes that syncretism – the attempt of fusion and reconciliation of diverse religious convictions – must be avoided. The Templeton prize is on the contrary destined to highlight the diversity of religious beliefs and of their expressions. Consequently, tolerance occupies there a very important place. There is no question of truth or error. On the contrary, it is simply a matter to help man to recognize “the infinity of the universal spirit”, the multiplicity of roads by which the Creator reveals Himself to man.
In vain do we look for the mention of a personal God, as the Christian faith requires. On the other hand, a few lines below, the text of the brochure speaks of “the Divine”. This equivocal reference truly appears to be an allusion to the Great Architect of the universe.
It is the largest prize of the world (more than a million dollars). Among the beneficiaries, we find Mother Teresa, the ecumenical Roger Schutz of Taize, Cardinal Suenens, a Buddhist, a rabbi, a Hindu, and … Chiara Lubich of Focolare.
The first person to be awarded the Templeton Prize was Mother Teresa of Calcutta in 1973. A year later the foundation awarded the prize to Brother Roger, founder of the Ecumenical Community of Taizé, France. Cardinal Leo Jozef Suenens, archbishop of Malines-Brussels, received the prize in 1976 for being a “pioneer” Charismatic Renewal Movement.
Chiara Lubich, founder of the Focolare movement, received the prize in 1977 for fostering lay commitment and dialogue among Christians of various confessions. Source: www.focolare.org
See FOCOLARE, ‘THE WORK OF MARY’-IS IT GOOD FOR CATHOLICS? [The answer is: “NO”]
An exchange of letters with a Catholic from Mexico who had lived in the U.S.A. for eight years:
Sent: Thursday, October 30, 2014 5:17 AM
My parents belonged to the Apostleship of the Cross(Conchita Cabrera de Armida) — http://www.apcross.org/cross.htm http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5pvhUdTP9js&list=UUP3dkHFMJmHNRLzYgvOS9Tw&index=10&feature=plcp , in the late 70´s early 80´s in Mexico and they witnessed firsthand the introduction of the Charismatic Renewal Movement, when it was first run by Spanish priests from the order of Missionaries of the Holy Spirit. From what I understand, it quickly deteriorated into what it is today and the original priests died off or refused to have anything to do with it, as it is today.
I came back into full communion with the Church in 2001, after what in hindsight, I’ve determined was approximately 5 years, that our Dear Patient and Loving Lord had to chase me around trying to get me to return to Him. There were no earth-shattering mystical events but some very poignant ones that shook me to the core, one of which was being able to visit the Vatican in 1998 and in a 24 hour period finding myself in the presence of Saint Pope John Paul II, albeit at a distance, and experiencing a cleansing of the soul through the intercession of God the Holy Spirit.
I can’t emphasize enough how far I had drifted away from God and into Satan’s hands, but His Infinite Love and Mercy lovingly reigned me in and placed very Holy people in my path to help me along the way. This came by way of introducing a man from Spain named Joaquim and an Italian lady named Anna who became my spiritual parents in the U.S. during my 8 year stay in Miami, Florida. It wasn’t until a number of years later that I noticed the “coincidence” that my name is Maria and that I had a Joaquim and Anna at my side, named after the saintly parents of Our Blessed Mother Mary, which personally highlighted Our Blessed Mother’s intercession in response to my mother’s pious prayers for my conversion.
In any case, here I am with God clipping at my heels moving me along quickly to bring me up to speed with what is happening in His Church and in the world and hopefully getting me to serve Him by fulfilling my mission here on earth. Our Lord has led me to meet church groups, ministries, apostolates, visionaries, etc., galore, from a number of different countries, considering that Miami, Florida is a hub for Europe and South America.
In Jan 2004, on the spur of the moment, I went to Costa Rica at the invitation of a friend of my parents, whom I had met many years before, and who himself had been invited. His name is Javier (J.V.) and throughout his whole life he has received many mystical experiences, messages from God, in His Most Holy Trinity, and from Our Blessed Mother.
I’ve always felt a great dislike for the Charismatic Movement, going so far as asking God why I felt this way about them, and I felt his response in my heart: It’s not the what, it’s the how. […]
However, he himself, through God given knowledge, is aware that the current Charismatic Renewal Movement is a travesty of God’s Will
and he has denounced it so to leaders of said movement here in Mexico, which includes delivering a message from God. […]
My interpretation of that is that they’ve hijacked God the Holy Spirit when in fact God the Holy Spirit leads all ministries and apostolates in the Church. They do not have an exclusive hold on God the Holy Spirit and his gifts, and not everyone has the gifts of healing, tongues, interpretation of tongues, etc. but they seem to believe that they do and so they distort God’s way. I once heard of a recorded conversation of an American from the South who had been involved with the Masons and Illuminati giving a talk to a group of Protestants, and in it he mentions that the charismatic movement was introduced by the enemies of Christianity, first with the Protestants, and then with the Catholics through a Cardinal named Suenens.
When I heard this I had to research it and found that in fact Cardinal Suenens was on a list of Mason Cardinals.
ML Sent: Monday, November 03, 2014 2:58 PM Subject: THE CHARISMATIC MOVEMENT
If I had not had the experiences that I had, I might have believed anything during my Catholic walk since 1982 and before my deepened knowledge of Catholic apologetics, even become a Traditionalist at one extreme or a Pentecostal at the other.
My initial experience is unique. I was a lapsed Catholic when inexplicable events starting occurring at my wife’s home from December 1981. I witnessed them and had a conversion experience in May 1982. Jesus and his mother Mary were appearing to some of my wife Angela’s sisters and giving them messages though interior locutions. I knew nothing at all about the Bible as well as my Faith and I had never heard of the charismatic renewal.
Through the locutions, we were instructed in many things Catholic, and given, each of us, a mission. Mine was to plant the charismatic renewal in Delhi where I then lived while telling the priests and the Archbishop that it was the work of the Lord.
I was then 32. I was told by the Lord that I would eventually have a ministry that would reach tens of thousands.
To make a long story short, we were also told by Jesus that this “beautiful charismatic renewal” of the Church was already being destroyed by ambitious and flesh-walking Catholics. The instrument delivering that message to us wept bitterly.
Within a month of the commission that I received, my wife and I were planting prayer groups all over New Delhi, and I helped constitute the first Charismatic Renewal Service Team there.
During the ten years of my tenure on the Service Team, I saw error and pride and nepotism and worse creep in.
Slowly but surely, when the Lord saw my pain and frustration at what the Renewal was becoming, he broke the path for my present very different prophetic ministry.
Under “natural” circumstances, I could never have ever achieved what I have either in New Delhi or presently from Chennai. In both cases, all the circumstances were chock-a-block with major and minor miracles; there’s no other word for them. I believe in the Charismatic Renewal but not what it has now become, in India at least!!!!!
In essence I agree with all that you expressed. I also have the evidence that Cardinal Suenens was exposed as a Freemason, though there is no way to authenticate the source of that information. I have included that story in one of my reports in a different context. Michael
In 2006, I received two photocopied pages under the title “Masons”. This material appears to be the concerned with the “prophecies” of the false seer Veronica Lueken of “Our Lady of the Roses”, Bayside, New York. The pages provide the names of 125 high-ranking Catholic clergy in “a list of Masons and is reprinted exactly as printed in the July 1976 Bulletin de L’Occident Chretien Nr. 12 (Directeur Pierre Fautrad a Fye- 72490 Bourg Le Roi)… Each man’s name is followed by his position if known, the date he was initiated into Masonry, his code #, and his code name if known.“
At no.108 is the late Cardinal Leo Suenens of Belgium.
In response to a query from me regarding the above, Catholic apologist John Salza wrote:
Michael, thank you for your wonderful ministry. It is a great service to expose the darkness of the New Age. You may be interested to know that I am releasing a book on Freemasonry this September called Masonry Unmasked: An Insider Reveals the Secrets of the Lodge.
Freemasonry also inculcates many of the New Age ideologies.
Our Sunday Visitor is my publisher. I released The Biblical Basis for the Catholic faith last year (2005). Masonry Unmasked will be out in September, 2006. I will also have a book on the papacy coming out in 2007, and am working on a book on the Eucharist for 2008. You may contact the publisher at 1.800.348.2440 or visit their website at www.osv.com.
Masonry Unmasked will be helpful to your patrons because it is written from a Catholic perspective, unlike the four books you mentioned which are written by Protestants, most of whom are anti-Catholic.
If there are Masons in the church hierarchy, then they have infiltrated the Church in an effort to destroy her. That would not surprise me. The smoke of Satan has entered into the Church, and it is a Masonic ethos. My book will blow the cover off of this pan-religious satanic sect and show the world what it really is all about.
God bless you, your family, and your ministry. John (See also page 9)
I received a packet of papers by snail mail from a Capt. Mervin John Lobo containing a Traditionalist list of Freemasons in the hierarchy of the Catholic Church, against which I wrote to him; his wife Meg replied:
Thanks for telephoning. You promised me that you would write, but you didn’t.
Could you tell me about the late Cardinal Suenens? You have shown that he was a Freemason, but what about his being the leader of the Catholic Charismatic Renewal for so many years?
Could you explain that and tell me some more? Michael
Praise the Lord… I was just filing my mail and came across your request. Mervin is sailing, and I think that he did send you something about Cardinal Leo Suenens. Anyway I am sending you something I have on him. Below in red is what it is said about Suenens. Scroll down the list of Freemasons to his name. God Bless, Meg

Beatification of Paul VI? – Letter to the Cardinals –
By Dr. Fr. Luigi Villa
The most prominent and powerful collaborators of Paul VI were Freemasons.
– Cardinal Joseph Suenens, one of the great electors of Paul VI.
Who is Father Luigi Villa?
By Dr. Franco Adessa
In all those years, Father Villa worked as a secret agent of Cardinal Ottaviani, with the specialty of documenting the membership of senior officials of the Catholic Church into Freemasonry and to deal with some delicate questions of the Church.
This role made Fr. Villa at home and a person well known in Police Offices, Police Headquarters
and other Agencies of General Investigations
and Special Operations.
In September, 1978, during the brief pontificate of Pope Luciani (Pope John Paul I), the “List of Pecorelli” appeared on “OP”
(Political Observer), the magazine of lawyer Mino Pecorelli.
It was not a great surprise for Father Villa to read many names of senior officials as they had already been removed from their positions, some time before, since he had provided the documents to the Holy Office of their membership in Freemasonry.
One of the most famous cases was that one of Cardinal Joseph Suenens, driven from his headquarters in Brussels because he was found to be a Mason. He was also married and living with a son named Paul!

The rest of the Top 20 most dangerous Catholics (in the past 100 years)
By Michael Voris, February 5, 2016
“Cardinal Leo Suenens: The archbishop of Brussels, Belgium for almost all of the 1960s and 1970s, and a looming figure at Vatican II. He was an enthusiastic supporter of the charismatic renewal movement in its early days when it created massive confusion in the minds of ordinary Catholics, blurring the lines with Protestantism. He was a huge supporter of 1960’s ecumenism, which unofficially lowered the wall between the Protestant heresy and the Church.
He counseled Pope Paul VI against issuing “Humanae Vitae” and said during the Council that the Church was holding procreation above conjugal love. He later denied the statement.”
Now, take a look at the names of just 8 out of the remaining 19 of the “Top 20 Most Dangerous Catholics” on Michael Voris’ list and you will appreciate how Suenens rates … and Voris did not even note that Suenens was allegedly a married man with a son, and a Freemason!
Liberal theologian Fr. Richard McBrien, Fr. Charles Curran who led the most vocal opposition to Pope Paul’s Encyclical “Humanae Vitae”, the Jesuit Fr. Karl Rahner “who confounded three generations of seminarians and Churchmen with his theo-babble about ‘anonymous Christians’,” Fr. Edward Schillebeeckx who was the architect of the infamous Dutch Catechism”, Fr. Hans Küng “who denies the dogma of papal infallibility”, Fr. Pedro Arrupe, “Father General of the Jesuits who is credited with opening the floodgates to the destruction of the order by allowing its acceptance and promotion of liberation theology”, Fr. Timothy Radcliffe, Dominican priest who “was especially noted for his embrace of homosexuality and advancement of it in the Church,” Annibale Bugnini, “the archbishop who is credited with singlehandedly implementing the Novus Ordo Mass with built-in abuses and “had been able to destroy the Church’s liturgy following the decrees of the Second Vatican Council by simply twisting what the Council had called for”. “He was heavily rumored to be a Freemason.”
Communion in the Hand while Standing: What’s the Problem?
January 5, 2012
“It is not permitted that the faithful should themselves pick up the consecrated bread and the sacred chalice, still less that they should hand them from one to another.”- Pope John Paul II, Inaestimabile Donum (April, 1980)
The Church teaches that Christ’s Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity are present in the Blessed Sacrament. There are many Martyrs who gave their lives rather than deny this teaching. Any self-respecting Catholic knows this. There really ought to be no question about how Holy Communion should be received, and that is: on the tongue whilst kneeling.
There can be no denying that Holy Communion is now almost universally received in the hand and that this has been the case since shortly after the conclusion of the Second Vatican Council. Note, however, that there is no mention whatever of Communion in the hand in the documents of Vatican II. In fact, Cardinal L Suenens first introduced the practice illicitly in Belgium in the mid-1960s from whence it spread quickly to Holland, Germany and France.
When the abuse came to the notice of Pope Paul VI in 1969, he issued Memoriale Domini ruling out universal change to the Church’s method of administering Holy Communion on the tongue to kneeling communicants. In this document the Pope expressed his sadness that Communion in the hand had been introduced in some places without either his knowledge or the Church’s consent.
Subsequently, Pope John Paul II twice indicated the irregularity of this practice as a universal norm. In Dominicae Cenae (Feb. 1980), he stated: “To touch the sacred species and to distribute them with their own hands is a privilege of the ordained.”
Then, in Inaestimabile Donum (April, 1980), Pope John Paul wrote: “It is not permitted that the faithful should themselves pick up the consecrated bread and the sacred chalice, still less that they should hand them from one to another.” […]
Cardinal Suenens has been responsible for the illicit practice of receiving Holy Communion in the hand.
Holy Communion in the Hand: The True Story
By Rev. Paul J. McDonald Pastor, St. Patrick’s Church, from on-line edition of Mary’s Anawim, July, 2008
[…] The practice of Communion in the hand was first introduced in Belgium by Cardinal Suenens in disobedience to the rubrics of the Holy See. Not wishing to publicly rebuke a brother bishop, Pope Paul VI decided to lift the ban prohibiting Communion in the hand, leaving the decision to individual bishops. […]
Communion-in-the-Hand: An Historical View
Aquinas Multimedia, May-June 1996 issue
[…] The practice of communion-in-the-hand was “first introduced in Belgium by Cardinal Suenens, in flagrant disobedience to the rubrics given by the Holy See. Not wishing to publicly reprove a brother bishop, Paul VI decided to lift the ban prohibiting Holy Communion in the hand, leaving the decision to individual bishops” (Dietrich Von Hildebrand, The Latin Mass Society, Nov 1995). […]
Cardinal Suenens has been responsible for the aberration of singing and praying in tongues at Holy Mass.
More on Speaking in Tongues [at Mass]
ROME, September 7, 2010
After our mention of the norms of the Brazilian bishops’ conference on speaking and praying in tongues during Mass (see Aug. 24) [http://www.zenit.org/rssenglish-30138], a reader from Indiana wrote:
“In 1975, at the International Conference on the Charismatic Renewal held in Rome, Pope Paul VI allowed Cardinal Suenens to concelebrate a charismatic Mass in St. Peter’s. At that Mass, there was most definitely praying in tongues (not ‘speaking in tongues’) along with singing in tongues by the cardinals, bishops, priests and laypeople all gathered together at this Mass, with the Pope’s approval. It was a beautiful time of worship in the heart of the Church. The Pope himself spoke to us after Mass with words of welcome and advice for those involved in the charismatic renewal. It is important to make a distinction, as St. Paul himself does, between speaking in tongues and praying in tongues.”
The document I quoted from Brazil clearly made the distinction between praying and speaking in tongues, but finally decided that neither was appropriate in the context of Mass.
The fact that in 1975 Pope Paul VI allowed this concelebration in no way suggests an official approval of all charismatic practices during Mass. In 1975 the Catholic charismatic renewal was barely 8 years old and the Pope was offering cautious encouragement to the movement.
The Church is not hasty in granting definitive approvals or condemnations. It prefers to observe new spiritual realities and orientate little by little. In this sense the 1994 Brazilian document or the 2000 Instruction on Prayers for Healing by the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith represent more mature reflections in the light of lived experience.
The aim of such reflections and guidelines is not to condemn the charismatic renewal but to help it achieve its full potential as an integral part of the Church.
Strangely, however, Cardinal Suenens on another charismatic phenomenon also described as being “slain in the Spirit” “concludes that ‘resting in the spirit’ not only is not a manifestation of the power of the Holy Spirit but it threatens the authenticity and credibility of the Charismatic Renewal.” (See also page 1)
Can Paul VI be beatified?
Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre gives his assessment as to why Pope Paul VI should not be beatified, firstly for his adherence to liberalism.
What is your own explanation of Paul VI’s pontificate?
The real solution seems entirely different to me, much more complex, more difficult, and more painful. It is given us by a friend of Paul VI, Cardinal Daniélou. In his Memoirs, published by a member of his family, the cardinal clearly states, “It is clear that Paul VI is a liberal pope.”
Such is the solution that seems the most historically likely, because this pope was himself a fruit of liberalism. His whole life was permeated with the influence of the men he chose to surround him or to rule him, and they were liberals.
Paul VI did not hide his liberal leanings; at the Council, the men he chose as moderators to replace the presidents appointed by John XXIII, were Cardinal Agagianian, a cardinal of colorless personality from the Curia, and Cardinals Lercaro, Suenens and Dopfner, all three liberals and the pope’s friends.
The presidents were sidelined at the head table, and these three liberals directed the conciliar debates.
The above judgement on Suenens is confirmed by this article
Off The Rails: Was Vatican II Hijacked?
By James Hitchcock, undated
The Church was apparently flourishing during John’s pontificate. By contrast with what would come later, its members were unusually serious, devout, and moral. But such a Church could be criticized as fostering formalism, a neglect of social justice, and an overly narrow piety, and it’s likely that John XXIII thought that a new Pentecost could build on this foundation to reach still higher levels.
In his opening address to the council, John affirmed the infallibility of the Church but called on it to take account of the “errors, requirements, and opportunities” of the age. He regretted that some Catholics (“prophets of gloom”) seemed unable to see any good in the modern world and regarded it as the worst of all historical periods. The dogmas of the Church were settled and “known to all,” so the conciliar task was to explore new ways of presenting them to the modern world.
The preparatory commissions for the council were dominated by members of the Curia, who were inclined toward precisely such a pessimistic view. When the council opened, there were objections to those commissions, with the result that the council fathers were allowed to approve new schema prepared by some of their own. In some ways this procedural squabble was the most decisive event of the entire council, and it represented a crucial victory for what was now called the “liberal” or “optimistic” party, guaranteeing that the council as a whole would look on its work as more than a mere restatement of accepted truths. There was an officially endorsed spirit of optimism in which even legitimate questions about the wisdom of certain ideas were treated as evidence of lack of faith.
The intellectual leadership of the council came mainly from Western Europe, the most influential prelates being Bernard Alfrink of the Netherlands, Leon Jozef Suenens of Belgium, Achille Liénart of France, Julius Doepfner and Joseph Frings of Germany, and Franz Koenig of Austria. Those five countries, along with the rest of Europe, possessed an ancient tradition of Catholicism, and they had nourished a vigorous and sophisticated Catholic intellectual life.
As theological questions arose, the council fathers almost automatically deferred to the opinions of these European prelates, who were in turn influenced by men recognized as the most accomplished theologians of the age—Henri DeLubac, Jean Danielou, and Yves Congar in France; Edward Schillebeeckx in the Netherlands; Karl Rahner and Joseph Ratzinger in Germany.
A prime example of the postconciliar dynamic at work was the “renewal” of religious life. Cardinal Suenens wrote the influential book The Nun in the World, enjoining sisters to come out of their cloisters and accept the challenges of modern life. Whatever might be thought about them as theological principles, such recipes for “renewal” also promised that those who adopted them would experience phenomenal revitalization, including dramatic numerical growth, and for a few years after the council the official spirit of naive optimism won out over the “prophets of gloom.”
The most famous instance of such renewal in the United States was that of the Immaculate Heart Sisters of Los Angeles. Their program of aggiornamento had all the ingredients required at the time—intense publicity from an overwhelmingly favorable media, a prestigious secular “expert” (the psychologist Carl Rogers
– a New Ager -Michael), picturesque experiments with nontraditional behavior (encounter groups), and a reactionary villain (James Cardinal McIntyre) portrayed as the only obstacle to progress. Not until it was too late did anyone ask whether the IHM Sisters, along with countless others, were simply abandoning their vocations completely.
Cardinal Liénart was a Freemason. Cardinal Ratzinger, during Vatican Council II, was a liberal; he later became a conservative.

Freemason Converts to Catholicism and Exposes the Diabolic Cult of Freemasonry
(The connection between Masonry, Our Lady, and the Third Secret of Fatima)
By John Salza (See also page 3), October 29, 2014
Former Freemason turned Traditional Catholic, Attorney John Salza exposes the evils of Freemasonry and reveals that they are the church of Satan. They are the greatest enemy of the Catholic Church and the whole of society. He explains how Freemasonry has worked to subvert the Church and to destroy it as well as their impact on the whole Christian social order.
“We wish it to be your rule first of all to tear away the mask from Freemasonry, and to let it be seen as it really is; and by sermons and pastoral letters to instruct the people as to the artifices used by societies of this kind in seducing men and enticing them into their ranks, and as to the depravity of their opinions and the wickedness of their acts. As Our predecessors have many times repeated, let no man think that he may for any reason whatsoever join the masonic sect, if he values his Catholic name and his eternal salvation as he ought to value them. Let no one be deceived by a pretense of honesty. It may seem to some that Freemasons demand nothing that is openly contrary to religion and morality; but, as the whole principle and object of the sect lies in what is vicious and criminal, to join with these men or in any way to help them cannot be lawful.” –Pope Leo XIII, Humanum Genus, April 20, 1884
FBI (Faith Based Investigation) Freemasonry

Many believe the Freemasons are simply a centuries-old charitable fraternity. However, the Catholic Church has consistently condemned Freemasonry more than any other error in its history because it promotes indifferentism, naturalism, communism, and other dangerous philosophies.

On January 27, 2011, MumbaiLaity, a Mumbai-based blog carried an article that held that Freemasons “control the Vatican and the Roman Catholic Church”. It came to my attention when one Prakash Lasrado circulated an email on July 22, 2013 to a large mailing that included Indian cardinals and bishops.
Masons Control the Vatican and the Roman Catholic Church
January 27, 2011
Compiled by Rev. F.J.G. Ragelis (1976) Emphases theirs except colour
Pope John Paul I
His reign lasted only 33 days 1978 August to 1978 September. According to some sources he was murdered
Although Liberalist and Marxist infiltrators have been more active in the Roman Catholic Church in the past 50 years, with selected agents entering the seminaries as candidates for the Priesthood, the disciples of the Church kept these infected intellectuals underground, restraining any open activity.
Pope John XXIII knew there were dangerous elements in the Church, and specifically to bring them out in the open, he convened the Second Vatican Council. The Council had no sooner opened when the secret elements took control. The conservative Council Fathers were unprepared and could not foresee that they would be the losers.
When the documents of Vatican Council II were published, they became a tool in the hands of progressivist elements. Special commissions were created to work out what was to be changed and how the changes must be enforced under obedience. The special commissions were of course controlled by the same secret elements.
Listed below are the names of Monsignors, Bishops and Cardinals who are Masons and who are working in the Vatican. From the number of them – and from the exalted posts they hold it is easy to see how they completely control the Holy Father, the Vatican and the entire Church. These are some of the men responsible for the detested changes being forced upon good Catholics all over the world today.
Two lists with 12 + 5 names were found here:

1. HIGH RANKING CHURCH OFFICIALS OF THE VATICAN, ARCHBISHOPS AND BISHOPS ARE ACCUSED OF BEING PART OF MASONRY (El Universal of Mexico, August 10, 1976)
Geneva (Agence France Presse). High-ranking Church officials in the Vatican and Archbishops and Bishops of different countries are militant members of Freemasonry, as was denounced yesterday here by the International Committee of Defence of Catholic Tradition. Among them figure none other than some of the principal collaborators of the Pope, such as the Secretary of the Holy Father, Msgr. Pasquale Macchi, the Vatican diplomat Agostino Casaroli and the Secretary of State of the Holy See, Msgr Jean Villot.
This presence of the enemies of the Church, in the internal structure of the Church forms a part of the mystery of iniquity and should be unmasked, the international organisation affirmed.
The list of prelates accused of being Masons was published by the International Committee of Defence of Catholic Tradition which is formed, as it is affirmed, by renowned personalities of different nations who are identifies in all the force of their Faith as theologians in unity with Catholic Tradition
The Integralists, who propose for themselves (to defend the Traditional Church), directly mention the Vatican Secretary of State, Jean Villot, as one having come forth from a French family that produces, from father to son during the last two centuries, Grand Masters of Freemasonry and the Rosicrucians
Other high-ranking dignitaries of the Church accused by the International Traditionalist Organisation are the Primate of Belgium, Leo Suenens; the Vicar of His Holiness for the diocese of Rome, Ugo Poletti; the Archbishop of Turin, Michele Pellegrino; and the Prefect of the Roman Curia Congregation of Bishops, Cardinal Baggio.
The International Committee of Defense of Catholic Tradition, after indicating that the Bishop of Lille (Nord, France), Achille Liénart, also belongs to Freemasonry, publicly gave out the same accusation against other bishops. The well-known Vatican diplomat Msgr. Agostino Casaroli and the Private Secretary of the Pope, Msgr. Pasquale Macchi, are also both Masons, according to the International Committee of Defence of Catholic Tradition. Msgr. Casaroli is qualified as the Kissinger of Vatican diplomacy, the great artisan of the opening up to the (Communist) East and all of the scandalous destitution of Cardinal Mindszenty
2. El Universal of Mexico, August 10, 1976 Paris (Agence France Presse). Some French literary personalities sent a letter to Pope Paul VI, published yesterday here by the conservative Le Figaro, asking him to reconsider the sanctions applied to the Traditionalist Bishop Archbishop Lefèbvre. They added that Pope John XIII “esteemed and loved” Lefèbvre, and they indicated later on in the letter: “They are being celebrated everywhere and with impunity certain strange Masses, sometimes ecumenical ones, that have absolutely nothing to do with the Mass of Pope Paul VI.” — Then it would seem that any and all Eucharistic celebrations be tolerated, save the traditional Mass.

II. Masons in the Catholic Church
Masonry undermines all religion. Numerous Popes have spoken and written about the great evils of this secretive and infiltrative organization. In this article, we present our third exposé on Masonry and Freemasonry in an effort to alert the Faithful to a sobering fact: Masonry has entered the Church; or as Pope Paul VI himself said: “The smoke of Satan has entered the Church.”
We make no claim to be the authors of the information below. Rather, we have collected it from books and other reliable sources, all of which we give credit to accordingly. The reader is free to draw his own conclusions.
We begin with an excerpt from Humanum Genus, Pope Leo XIII’s Encyclical on Freemasonry:
“If other proofs are wanting, this fact would be sufficiently disclosed by the testimony of men well informed, of whom some at other times, and others again recently, have declared it to be true of the Freemasons that they especially desire to assail the Church with irreconcilable hostility and that they will never rest until they have destroyed whatever the Supreme Pontiffs have established for the sake of religion.
“If those who are admitted as members are not commanded to abjure by any form of words the Catholic doctrines, this omission, so far from adverse to the designs of the Freemasons, is more useful for their purposes. First, in this way they easily deceive the simple-minded and the heedless, and can induce a far greater number to become members. Again, as all who offer themselves are received whatever may be their form of religion, they thereby teach the great error of this age — that a regard for religion should be held as an indifferent matter, and that all religions are alike. This manner of reasoning is calculated to bring about the ruin of all forms of religion, and especially of the Catholic religion, which, as it is the only one that is true, cannot, without great injustice, be regarded as merely equal to other religions.”
Anne Catherine Emmerich (1774-1824), a German Augustinian nun, stigmatist (bore the wounds of Christ), and miracle-worker, who subsisted entirely on water and Holy Communion for many years, received numerous visions of the future crisis in the Church and the infiltration of the Masons. In her visions, she describes men in aprons destroying the Church with a trowel, The Masons wear aprons and their symbol is the Mason’s trowel. The following excerpts are from page 565 of Life of Anne Catherine Emmerich, Vol. 1, by Rev. K.E. Schmöger, Tan Books, 1976:
“I saw St. Peter’s. A great crowd of men was trying to pull it down whilst others constantly built it up again. Lines connected these men one with another and with others throughout the whole world. I was amazed at their perfect understanding.
“The demolishers, mostly apostates and members of different sects, broke off whole pieces and worked according to rules and instructions. They wore WHITE APRONS bound with blue riband. In them were pockets and they had TROWELS stuck in their belts. The costumes of the others were various.
“There were among the demolishers distinguished men wearing uniforms and crosses. They did not work themselves but they marked out on the wall with a TROWEL where and how it should be torn down. To my horror, I saw among them Catholic Priests. Whenever the workmen did not know how to go on, they went to a certain one in their party. He had a large book which seemed to contain the whole plan of the building and the way to destroy it. They marked out exactly with a TROWEL the parts to be attacked, and they soon came down. They worked quietly and confidently, but slyly, furtively and warily. I saw the Pope praying, surrounded by false friends who often did the very opposite to what he had ordered…”
The following is a list of Masons reprinted with some updates from the Bulletin de l’Occident Chrétien Nr.12, July, 1976, (Directeur Pierre Fautrad a Fye – 72490 Bourg Le Roi.) All of the men on this list, if they in fact be Masons, are excommunicated by Canon Law 2338. Each man’s name is followed by his position, if known; the date he was initiated into Masonry, his code #; and his code name, if known.

A reader’s comment
I hate to disclaim the above comments. But all the above research is truth. Masons did take over the Catholic Church. Thank goodness for the Society of Pius X. Cardinal Villot had an imposter pope in place of Pope Paul. There is an exorcism which names three evil cardinals and the imposter pope. You Tube “Devil in the Vatican” great video. All the above Mason Catholics should be excommunicated. And the true Vicar of Christ elected from the Society of Pius X. –James, October 24, 2012

The Church under Attack by Paolo Reyes
Posted on August 4, 2013
The messages of Our Lady to Fr. Stefano Gobbi, contained in the book “Our Lady Speaks to Her Beloved Priests” bear an imprimatur and nihil obstat from the Church, and have spawned a worldwide Marian Movement of Priests and Laity that counts hundreds of cardinals, bishops, and priests, as well as millions of laity, as members.
In a message dated June 13, 1989, Our Lady told Fr. Gobbi that “the beast like a lamb” prophesied in the Book of Revelation is none other than freemasonry that has infiltrated the Catholic Church…
