Whoever Adheres to Freemasonry

a.) Anyone who joins Freemasonry automatically incurs excommunication, which is simpliciter reserved to the Apostolic See.
The connection to Freemasonry is that one can be registered as a member. A special rite for reception is not required to incite excommunication. It is also not necessary for someone to take part in the Masonic meetings.
A freemason who wants to reconcile himself to the Church can only obtain the acquittal if he is completely separated from Freemasonry and removed from the membership list. He also has to promise never to pay a contribution, nor to participate in meetings of the lodge brothers. As far as possible, such a freemason must hand over all badges, books and documents to the ecclesiastical superior or his delegate. Furthermore, he must also make reparation for the offense as much as possible.
...
(b) The same punishment as the Freemasons fall into those who join a similar union which fights or agitates against the Church or the legitimate state power.
Because it must be an association similar to that of Freemasonry, the organization (but not the members) must be secret, as the members must observe silence about the structure, purpose, and means of the association. It is not, however, required that they should commit themselves by an oath.
A society fosters or acts against the Church, if it (perhaps among other good purposes) has the purpose of combating the Church, its authority, its powers, rights, privileges, etc., or its offices (not certain persons for personal reasons) ,
An organization fights against the powers of the state if, like the nihilists and anarchists, they want to eliminate any state authority or even to eliminate the existing state form, by revolution. But it does not belong here to the political parties who want to gain political power by law and then to change the state form. - It remains the same whether the association mentioned publicly or secretly to agitate against or strangle the Church or state.

  1. Freemasonry was designed to subvert the Church and not to destroy it. Malachi Martin stated that the enemies of the Church did not want to destroy it but to twist it to serve the purpose of the new world order. Hello! Read statements made by "Bernie Bits" and realize that he had his honeymoon in Moscow. P Francis is just a tool for the dream to come to fruition and to prepare for the Anti Christ.

  2. The revised code of canon law does not explicitly forbid membership in freemasonry.

    1. Not true. Someone queried the CDF and they confirmed that the prohibition was unchanged. Read it here, http://www.vatican.va/roman_curia/congregations/cfaith/documents/rc_con_cfaith_doc_19831126_declaration-masonic_en.html

    2. Actually, I believe you are both right. I think the revised code removed the specific mention of Freemasonry from the prohibition, while maintaining the prohibition. The code was revised to enable inclusion of all groups of Freemasonic flavor, such as Oddfellows, Shriners, Rotary, and others, but did not specifically name them as they were multiplying incessantly. Belong to an anti-Catholic club or organization? Better get straightened out or it is the big X!

      So the revised code forbids membership in Freemasonry and like-minded organizations, but they do not explicitly name or enumerate them.

    3. The old code also included Masonic-flavored organizations.

  5. During a lonely time a number of years ago, I became a Freemason. I never went to a meeting, or paid any dues, but I did undergo the initiation rite. I knew during it that I was making a mistake, so I began to pray, and gave the strongest internal moral reservation I could. Of course, that means nothing.

    I need to know how to fix it. Please give me some advice.
