Cardinal Refused Masonic Grandmaster Church Funeral

(Abidjan) This news has been concealed in Europe. Cardinal Jean-Pierre Kutwa, the Archbishop of Abidjan, denied the Honorary Grandmaster  and founder of the Grand Lodge of the Ivory Coast, Clotaire Magloire Coffie, an ecclesiastical funeral. Coffie had been killed in a traffic accident this January 29th.

His sudden death has shaken the economy and politics of the West African country. Freemasonry is also influential on the Ivory Coast. Alassane Quattara, Congo, Denis Sassou Nguesso, and that of Gabon, Ali Bongo Odimba, were among the first to be included in the condolence book. In the Congo, Gabon and Sierra Leone, there is no prospect of a higher position in the state without initiation in the lodge.

The funeral ceremonies, in addition to a Masonic "farewell", which was not publicly announced, also foresaw an ecclesiastical funeral with a Requiem Mass on February 12th. So it had been announced from Coffie's circle.

Despite massive pressure, Cardinal Kutwa refuses Church funeral

In spite of massive political pressure on him, Cardinal Kutwa has denied the Grand Master an ecclesiastical funeral. The archbishop of Abidjan remained firm, recalling that Catholic faith and Freemasonry were incompatible. Cardinal Kutwa also instructed Msgr. Ziad Sacre, head of the Catholic, Lebanese mission of the country, not to undertake an ecclesiastical funeral for Michel Georges Ghorayeb. The Lebanese Ghorayeb, a Freemason  like Coffie, had been killed together with him in the traffic accident.

Coffie was called "Le Papa" by the Freemasons. "Le Papa et un autre frère, Michel Ghorayeb, sont morts" (The father and another brother, Michel Ghorayeb, are dead), Jeune Afrique reported on 31 January, citing the Grand Lodge of the Ivory Coast.

It was the Greek Orthodox priest of Abidjan who finally agreed to perform the religious rite on 6 February as part of a vigil.

Incompatibility: Fellowship automatically leads to excommunication

The incompatibility between the secret bond of the Lodges and the Catholic Church was confirmed by Pope Clement XII. in the dogmatic bull In Eminenti of 28 April 1738. Since then, Catholics know that they merit the punishment of the excommunication latae sententiae when they join a lodge.

The founding of the Grand-Lodge of London in June 1717 is considered the "birth-hour" of Freemasonry around the world. All other lodges invoke this grand lodge. 300 years later,
nothing of what Pope Clement XII. in his bull has been altered. On 26 November 1983, the Catholic Church finally confirmed the condemnation of Freemasonry. The Declaration of the Congregation for the Congregation of the Faith, headed by Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, took place with the express approval of Pope John Paul II. It stated that the negative judgment of the Church on Freemasonry was "unchanged". Literally it means:

"The negative judgment of the Church on Masonic associations thus remains unchanged because their principles have always been regarded as incompatible with the doctrine of the Church, and therefore, their membership in them is prohibited. The faithful who are members of the Masonic associations are, therefore, in the state of serious sin, and can not receive Holy Communion."

"Those who put pressure on Cardinal Kutwa to persuade him to allow an ecclesiastical burial for the Grand Master, despite the condemnation, may have been accustomed to dealing with a spineless clergy ready to bend, eager to please. But not all, thanks to Providence, are this way. There are Church leaders who continue to take the Catechism seriously and, above all, say no, when the sacraments and especially the Eucharist are at stake," said Mauro Faverzani of Corrispondenza Romana.

Great influence of the lodges on the policies of several African states

The funeral ceremonies for the influential Grand Master of the Grand Lodge of the Ivory Coast lasted several days from the 6th to the 10th of February, and were strikingly similar to the protocol for the corresponding celebrations at the death of a head of state. A large number of politicians had appeared, including the country's Minister of Security, Hamed Bakayoko, the Grand Master of the Grand Lodge of the Ivory Coast, who had been in office since 2015, and Alain Donwahi, the Grand Master of the Province of the Grand Center. Also present were Vice President Daniel Kablan Duncan, Minister of Economic Affairs Bruno Koné, former Prime Minister Jeannot Ahoussou Kouadio, Chairman of the Economic and Environmental Council, Charles Koffi Diby, and former Prime Minister Henriette Konan Bedié.

They presented themselves to Cardinal Kutwa. Jean-Pierre Kutwa, ordained a priest in 1971, was appointed Archbishop of Gagnoa in 2001 by Pope John Paul II. In 2006 Pope Benedict XVI appealed to him to take the archbishop's See of Abidjan. In February 2014, Pope Francis Francis raised him to the rank of Cardinal.

300 Years of Freemasonry in 2017 -- Bishop Schneider: Freemasonry is "the Work of Satan"

(Rome) On 11 December, Auxiliary Bishop Athanasius Schneider, one of the most remarkable and outstanding bishops of the Catholic Church, held a lecture before in Seville, Spain. The theme was "Mary, vencedora de todas las hierjias" (Maria, Conqueror of All Heresies).

Blessed Pope Pius IX. had pronounced the Blessed Mother in his bull Singulari quadam December 9 in 1854 as "Virgo Beatissima, quae interemit ac perdidit universas haeresas" which means: "Mary, Conquerer and Destroyer of All Heresies". On the day after the proclamation of the dogma of the Immaculate Conception, Pius IX. gathered all cardinals and bishops who had come for the occasion to Rome again to comply with its specific task to "strengthen brothers in the faith," and presented them with Singulari quadam an authentic interpretation of the announced Marie dogma.
In his lecture, Bishop Schneider spoke of Freemasonry and its work, with a view to their anniversary. In 2017, several commemorations will be held. In the German-speaking world, with a certain amount of media, the commemoration of "500 years of the Reformation" by Martin Luther will take place. Thus, other events of historical importance are covered. These include two major events that took place 100 years ago. There is the Bolshevik October Revolution in Russia with the spread of Communism, which still dominates one-fifth of the world's population. And, on the other hand, the recent Marian apparition in Fatima, Portugal, where Maria a few days before the outbreak of the October revolution had already directed the view to Russia.
In 2017, however, an event of the utmost importance is still on the agenda. 300 years ago, in 1717, the first Grand Lodge was established in London, to which the entire Freemasonry refers. 2017 is, in fact, a "memorable" year.
Bishop Schneider is known above all for his promotion of the restoration of the sacredness in the Holy Liturgy and the reverence for the Most Holy Eucharist. On the subject of Communion he published several works. In this, he advocates the worthy reception of Communion and recommends receiving Communion on the tongue while kneeling, as Pope Benedict XVI. required in papal masses. Because of the special attention to Holy Communion, Bishop Schneider is one of the decisive defenders of  marriage and penance. To Synod of Bishops on the Family, he published a publication with 100 questions and answers with which the aspirations of a new doctrine were rejected, allowing the divorced and remarried to the sacraments.
In Seville, Bishop Schneider spoke of the secret society of Freemasonry, which in 2017 looked back on a 300-year long, turbulent and obscure existence, as well as its revolutionary as well as subversive ambition. Bishop Schneider described Freemasonry as a "tool of Satan", since daylight has largely shied away from it.
The Auxiliary Bishop of Astana recalled in his remarks to St. Maximilian Kolbe and his portrayals of the aggressive appearance of Freemasons in Rome during the First World War. In 1917, in the middle of the war, the Freemasons in Rome celebrated their 200th anniversary. The Freemasons had openly declared war on the Church. They had littered Rome with posters, and with the black flag of the Giordano Bruno which were demonstratively moving up to the Vatican. On the posters and the flags "was a representation of Archangel Michael, who was defeated before the triumphant Lucifer laying on the ground", according to Bishop Schneider.
Because of these experiences the young Maximilian Kolbe, who was then at the Gregoriana, studying theology,  created the Militia Immaculatae (Knighthood of the Immaculate), to "counter the actions of Lucifer".
The goal of Freemasonry is, according to Bishop Schneider, "to eliminate the entire doctrine of God, especially Catholic doctrine." To achieve this goal, Freemasonry has been using "numerous societies". "They want the dissolution of morality" for a very specific reason. They are convinced of the principle that "catholicity, without corrupting morality, can not be defeated with logical arguments." Masonic action on this principle is currently "very topical", according to the auxiliary bishop of Kazakhstan.
"Undoubtedly, however, the virgin Mary, who has been immaculately conceived, will in the end, crush the greatest heresy of all time: the heresy of the Antichrist," said the auxiliary bishop.
Bishop Athanasius Schneider is the son of Black Sea Germans. His family had been deported by Stalin to Siberia and Central Asia with more than a million Russian Germans, so Schneider was born in Kyrgyz Tokmok in 1961. In 1973 the family was able to resettle in the Federal Republic of Germany, where he grew up and in 1982 entered the Order of Canons Regular of the Holy Cross. This order already belonged to Saint Anthony of Padua, before he joined the Order of Saint Francis of Assisi. Since 2001, Schneider has been a pastor in Kazakhstan. In 2006 Pope Benedict XVI appointed him as the titular bishop. As such he was first auxiliary bishop of the Karaganda diocese. Since 2011 he is auxiliary bishop of the Archbishopric of Astana.

Father Cavalcoli: "Pope Francis is Not Heretical. But He Surrounds Himself With False Friends and Bad Advisors"

Pater Giovani Cavalcoli: "There is a lot of disinformation.  The signs
of a confused Church. It appears there is a masonic maneuver against
Radio Maria in process."
(Rome) Last Saturday, the 5th of November, Radio Maria Italy has dismissed Father Giovanni Cavalcoli, one of the best-known moral theologians in Italy, who is close to Pope Benedict XVI. The Vatican dissociated itself publicly from the statements by the Dominican, which the latter, really need had not have done at all.  He was alleged to have claimed that the earthquakes in Central Italy was the punishment of God for the legalization of "homosexual marriage." [Homosexual is such a ridiculous word.]

The Catholic online daily La Fede Quotidiana (LFQ) spoke to the 75-year-old priest about the criticism from the Vatican. The moralist found clear words of disapproval for the Vatican's approach. The Secretariat of State publicly "contradicted" him and the Vatican media prepared the spreading of blame against him worldwide.

Father Cavalcoli had not used public criticism of Pope Francis in the past. Rather, he has defended Pope Francis against a "too quick" criticism, which "goes astray in some Catholic circles." Nevertheless, he became a victim of his faithfulness to ecclesiastical wretchedness.

"I confirm everything I said about the earthquake. What should I apologize for? If anyone needs to correct themselves, and to ask for forgiveness, it is they who should ask for forgiveness for their valorization of the heretic, Luther. "

LFQ: Father Cavalcoli, do you regret it?

Father Giovanni Cavalcoli: No. To me, many have rushed at me with wild methods, including many journalists, and this proves how great the disinformation and the ignorance of theology, doctrine, and catechism are. We are at the point where whoever observes these categories, causes  commotion and outrage.  Signs of a confused Church.

"No one is authorized to change the teaching and the Scripture."


LFQ: Does God send punishments or not?

Father Giovanni Cavalcoli: The Catechism, the Holy Scripture and the Doctrine are clear, and no one is authorized to change them. God sends penalties, and the earthquake stands like our catastrophe before our eyes. The punishment of God is a response to the action of man. A simple example: If I drink ten liters of liqueur and then die, I have to attribute the blame to myself, that is my punishment. The Holy Scriptures are full of God's punishments. "

Interview with Father Cavalcoli


LFQ: You have spoken of civil unions (gay marriage) ...

Father Giovanni Cavalcoli: I was misunderstood, or perhaps I expressed myself incorrectly. I have not referred to this law in the narrower sense. An explicit connection with a particular action can never be produced with ultimate certainty. But it involves vice and sinful and disordered behavior like homosexuality. God sends punishment to him who sins and knows what he is doing, consciously acting against the law of God.

LFQ: The State Secretariat, on the other hand, is in revolt ...

Father Giovanni Cavalcoli: I worked there myself. I see with bitterness that today everything is different. And there are also Masonic infiltrations there.

"Freemasonry maneuvers against Radio Maria"


LFQ: This is where your reflections are called pagan ...

Father Giovanni Cavalcoli: The true heathens are those who attack me. I am of the opinion that there is a masonic maneuver underway against Radio Maria, which is disturbing, and the station is probably at risk. Satan has long since penetrated into the Church and also into the Vatican. The pope is not heretical, but he surrounds himself with false friends and bad advisors like Kasper, Ravasi, Bianchi, Ronchi and Cantalamessa.

"Perhaps to apologize to those who have recently revaluated Luther"


LFQ: Will you correct yourself or apologize?

Father Giovanni Cavalcoli: I do not think of it, and confirm everything I said. In actuality they should apologize, those  Catholics who had lately valorized Luther, who may have done good, but is a heretic, and thus have caused much confusion. I am a serious Dominican with a straight backbone and not a bootlicker.

LFQ: And if Radio Maria should finally dismiss you?

Father Giovanni Cavalcoli: Then I will draw my conclusions from it. But I do not think so. I will not change my orthodoxy. The point is that a humanitarianism and a "misericordism" are being spread, but justice is neglected. This is a disservice. God is infinitely good, but He desires repentance and punishes us if that does not happen. The mercy as a scatter gun principle, of which they are telling us, is really a deceit of a Lutheran manufacture. I do not think they will attack me any further, or put me on the sidelines. I have wide shoulders. They'll think twice about that.

Bishop of Tenerife Forbids Powerful Freemasons Entrance into Church

Masonic Temple of Santa Cruz de Tenerife
(Madrid) The Bishop of Tenerife forbade Freemasons from entering a Catholic church. In November the annual congress of high level Freemasons of the 33rd degree of the Ancient Accepted Scottish Rite in the Canary Islands will take place.

Bishop Bernardo Álvarez informed the Masonic Lodges of the Canary Islands, that it will not tolerate the presence of Masonic symbols in the church of Santa Cruz de La Palma. The Masons wanted to commemorate deceased lodge brothers.

The Bishop of Tenerife made his decision public, with which he forbid the presence of the Loge Abora No. 87 in a church of Santa Cruz de La Palma. The notification was issued to the master of the Masonic Lodges of the Canary Islands, which is celebrating the "Masonic Week" in these days.

The First Masonic march to Christ the Savior Church in Decades

According to the daily ABC, a meeting between Bishop Álvarez and the Socialist Jeronimo Saavedra (PSOE) took place. Saavedra was, from 1993-1996, Minister of the Socialist government of Felipe Gonzalez, from 1999-2003, Spanish Senator, from 2007-2011 Mayor of Las Palmas and has since been a Member of Parliament. Saavedra is also a leading Freemason in the Canary Islands. At the meeting, the bishop informed his former minister "No" for an official appearance of the lodges in a church.

This week all of the big names in Spanish Freemasonry gathered on the island of La Palma, including Oscar de Alfonso Ortega, the Grand Master of the Grand Lodge of Spain. This said, in the fall of 2015: "We are experiencing one of the best moments of Freemasonry".

The Masons are to hold a "Masonic march" around the Christ the Savior Church on Friday, 2 September. Such things have  not been done in decades. "It is the first event of this kind since the return of democracy," said Saavedra.

Revival of Loge Abora No. 87

Thus, the lodge brothers celebrate the revival of the Loge Abora No. 87 after 80 years of inactivity "for political reasons".  Because of the national forces of the Popular Front in areas, Masonic lodges had to suspend their activities. On March 1, 1940 Generalissimo Franco issued the Ley para la represión de la Masoneria y el Comunismo, the Law on Suppression of Freemasonry and Communism.  Spanish Freemasonry continued its work from the Mexican exile, where many Spanish masons found protection and asylum when President Lázaro Cárdenas of the dictatorial ruling Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI), himself a freemason.

Currently, in the Canary Islands there are 20 active lodges. The Loge Abora no. 87 adopted in 1875, took up its work. They are now part of the Grand Lodge of Spain, after the Grand Orient of Spain had become extinct at the end of the Spanish Civil War.

Tenerife was, before the Civil War, one of the most important Masonic centers in Spain. In 1900, the lodge Añaza was established that belonged to the Grand Orient of Spain, a large Masonic Temple. General Franco seized the tempt in 1936 and appropriated it for the Spanish Falange.

The return to the lodge was not possible. The heavily Socialist city government (2011-2015) saw to it that the temple was declared a national monument and began renovations in 2015. According to the renovation plan, a third of the cost will be from the public sector and two-thirds are to be financed by the private sector. The driving force behind the renovation is the socialist Councilor Florentino Guzmán Plasencia.

This year's International Congress of High Degree Freemasons will be held in Santa Cruz de Tenerife in November. It is organized by the Supreme Council of the 33rd and highest grade of the Old Accepted Scottish Rite (A.A.S.R.) and takes place every year at a different location.

The lodge brothers hope to keep at least the final event in the renovated Masonic Temple.

Do Jews and Muslims Decide the Conditions for the Recognition of the SSPX?

(Rome) The news platform Vatican Insider  has allowed the American Jewish Comittee (AJC) to say, "what is negotiable and what is not" on the way to "the Reconciliation of the Lefebvrians with the Catholic Church". The "conditions" are significantly different from those named by he who is in charge of the talks, Curial Archbishop Guido Pozzo.
The article, signed by Lisa Palmieri-Billig, the "representative of the American Jewish Comittee to the Holy See," was published on 28 July. The American Jewish Comittee and Islam representative, Yahya Pallavicini, explained the conditions under which the Catholic Church could recognize the Society of St. Pius X.
The ecumenical [diabolical?] intervention was provoked by an interview by Curia Archbishop Guido Pozzo included in Christ und Welt (issue 32/2016). Archbishop Pozzo is officially entrusted with the talks with the SSPX as secretary of the Pontifical Commission Ecclesia Dei.

If the Vatican will "sacrifice" Conciliar Documents for SSPX?

The author summarizes what is clear from the interview that the "Society is no longer excommunicated, but has not yet been reintegrated canonically, and despite some initial concessions, continues to reject some important documents of Vatican II."  This raises  "more questions", say Palmieri-Billig. The "obvious", but so far unasked questions are:
"On what specific points is the Vatican willing to compromise?" And "If the Vatican is prepared to sacrifice the authoritative nature of some documents of the Second Vatican Council, which - although not a dogma - have become valuable tools for Interreligious Dialogue"

American Jewish Comittee

Two key areas are in play. The first area concerns the "Pope Francis' very strong desire for pastoral unity within the church and for reconciliation of theological breakthroughs." This precludes the second region, namely "the important impact on the future of basic documents of the Second Vatican Council". Palmieri-Billig explicitly names the document Nostra Aetate , particularly "the relationship of the Catholic Church and the Jewish people", and Dignitatis Humanae on religious freedom.
The authors complained in the statements about  Archbishop Guido Pozzo's "complete absence of any reference" to the historical roots of these documents of Vatican II and "thus the reasons why  John XXIII., Paul VI. and the Council Fathers felt it was important." Specifically,  Palmieri-Billig referred to  "Paragraph 4 of Nostra Aetate on relations between the Catholic Church and the Jewish people". This "omission" was all the more serious because of the "seemingly entrenched theological anti-Semitism" of the SSPX.

"Distorted indoctrination" and "ingrained theological anti-Semitism"

The representative of the American Jewish Comittee  then insists that Nostra Aetate of John XXIII. was intended finally to "extinguish the distorted indoctrination" of the charges of "deicide", an accusation that "had already been declared false and absurd by  the Council of Trent." The "need for this decision" by John XXIII. was beause he had "become aware through an encounter with Jules Isaac, a survivor of the Holocaust" where Isaac had convinced the pope from the fact that "this rhetoric circulating in Europe had created a suitable environment for the development of wild anti-Semitic stereotypes, which in turn fueled the hatred that made ​​the Shoah possible."

AJC demands conditions for the canonical recognition of the SSPX

Then the American Jewish Commitee comes to the point: If the SSPX can be canonically recognized "before" talks "about the validity" of Nostra Aetate found a "satisfactory solution", it "would create serious questions".
Palmieri-Billig  extensively cites Chief Rabbi David Rosen, the international director of the American Jewish Comittee for interreligious relations with the words:
"I have every confidence in the declaration of Cardinal Kurt Koch, President of the Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity, who explained that the adoption of Nostra Aetate as a binding document by the SSPX, is a necessary step to ensure that the members of the Society may be formally recognized by the Holy See; and I can not believe that Pope Francis could accept less than that. In addition, I hope that the Holy See, regarding Judaism and the Jewish people, insists in the addition to recognition of the teaching of the Magisterium, on the denial of anti-Semitism that was part of the culture of the SSPX. It was not just about Bishop 'Williamson and a couple other people: The website of the organization has been full of anti-Jewish rhetoric in the past. I want to hope that there is a formal recognition of the statement of Pope Francis in line with his predecessors, which states that it is impossible to be a true Christian if you have anti-Semitic opinions." [David Rosen gets to decide who's Christian.]

The Crux: SSPX or Dominus Iesus ?

Palmieri-Billig shows themselves further concerned about the differing levels of dogmatic binding, which is applied to the various conciliar documents, as Archbishop Curia Pozzo explained in his interview. Pozzo appealed to the will of the Council Fathers on this issue. On November 18, 1964, the secretary for Christian Unity on Nostra Aetate explained that his secretariat had no intention of adopting dogmatic declarations about non-Christian religions but only practical and pastoral norms, which is why Nostra Aetate has no dogmatic commitment. It is therefore, says Archbishop Curia Pozzo, not possible to ask someone, to recognize this document as "binding."

Imam Yahya Pallavicini

The American Jewish Comittee representatives were also offended at the finding of Archbishop Pozzo, that any interpretation of Nostra Aetate, must include the Declaration Dominus Iesus , on the unicity and salvific universality of Jesus Christ and the Church 2000, which is "without foundation and should therefore be rejected." The Secretary of Ecclesia Dei warned explicitly in this context against a false  interpretation of the "Spirit of Assisi".
Palmieri-Billig represented the statements of Imam Yahya Pallavicini, vice-president of the Italian Islamic Religious Community (COREIS) to the contrary, who is considered to be the "internationally recognized representative of a temperate 'traditional Islam'." Pallavicini had in turn warned the Vatican:
"The international Islamic community follows closely the development of this convergence process of the SSPX for reintegration into the Catholic Church. It is about the sensitivity to find a coherence regarding the pastoral implications of the outcome of the Council and of the document Nostra Aetate. While Pope Francis and the Catholic Church, together with the spiritual authorities of many other religious denominations, celebrate the prophetic value of this Council that initiated the historical cycle of 50 intense years of inter-religious and ecumenical dialogue on providential way, the SSPX appears to downplay at least the  this path and this orientation  to maintain a traditionalist interpretation that actually denies the spiritual need of respect and fellowship with believers and other confessions believing in a God. In a moment of dramatic international crisis in which the manipulation of religion becomes a hostage of some fundamentalist groups, there seems to arise a claim of 'legitimate violence' against Muslims, Christians and Jews, concerns us and the anachronism and the lack of sensitivity of movements that the Society even wants to force the Church  or  to teach a different hierarchy of values, than   the Council and obedience to the saints and the popes."

"Vilification and delegitimization of the 'Aggiornamento'- John XXIII's Will."

Although the AJC representative noted that Society, representing 70 countrieswith 750Mass locations  in the "enormous Catholic world" has only a "relatively small influence" ... "but nothing that happens in this world without effect". Concessions to the SSPX "could easily" lead to a "return of the old prejudices" against other confessions and to "transform to the militant conviction of possessing the only true way to God".

Pallavicini has already been received several times by Pope Francis in the past three years

That would be a further step towards the "insulting and delegitimization of the burning desire of John XXIII. according to the 'aggiornamento' of the Catholic Church and to return to the pseudo-religious, anti-Semitic stereotypes that  provoked immense suffering of many centuries and ultimately led to the diabolical persecutions and genocides of the 20th century. "
After the authors  thundered against SSPX , using the Antisemitism club, they praised "the deeply meaningful silence" of Pope Francis in Auschwitz as "deafening".
Director of Vatican Insider, the papal house vaticanist  Andrea Tornielli,  explains why his articles and products published by his platform are of particular attention. This also applies to this article by the AJC representatives to the Holy See, where Tornielli allows Jews and Muslims to designate the conditions about which the Holy See should conduct a canonical recognition of the SSPX. Vice versa this means: Should these conditions not be met, it would open up "serious questions". It's a statement in the article of the American Jewish Comittee that someone could read as a threat. Anyway,  Tornielli offered the American Jewish Comittee and the Islamic Religious Council the opportunity to be the warning sign for the Vatican.  It's an "unusual procedure", because they revolve "around internal Church matters" which are also to be clarified within the Church. It's an "interference" from the outside which must be "considerations rejected in principle" ipso facto, so Messa in Latino .
It is also dubious indeed that the American Jewish Comittee and the Islamic Religious Council  are pulling  together, to warn the Catholic Church of a "return" to their traditional claim that it was entrusted by Jesus Christ as the "only way to salvation."

Lisa Palmieri-Billig and Yahya Pallavicini

Lisa Palmieri-Billig was born in Vienna. With her ​​Jewish family, she emigrated in 1938 as a small child to New York. During the Second Vatican Council, she worked in the Roman branch of the World Jewish Congress (WJC). She was 25 years, Deputy Chairman of the European section of the World Conference of Religions for Peace, based in New York, founded in 1961 and is today Chairman of the Italian section of this organization. Since 2005, she is the Jewish Vatican expert AJC representative  in Italy and the Holy See.
Yahya Pallavicini, born in 1965, is the Imam al-Wahid Mosque of Milan. His mother is Japanese, his father, Felice Pallavicini is from Milan, descendant of a branch of a famous Italian noble family [With strong Masonic connections, fighting against the Church in the 1860s], converted in 1951 at the age of 25 years in Lausanne to Islam. He prefers to speak of a "convergence" and "realignment". Since then, he calls himself Abd al-Wahid and has traveled 30 years in the Islamic world, where he was in Istanbul, Jerusalem and finally introduced in Singapore to Islamic Sufism. In 1980, he himself became a Sheikh (Master) and as such, head of the Sufi brotherhood, Ahamadiyyah Idrissiyyah Shadhiliyyah in Europe. Abd al-Wahid Pallavicini represents a syncretic religious view that all religions lead to "a god". In a chronological sequence have revealed this, the Hinduism, according to Pallavicini, the first link in this  chain of revelation that leads to  the three monotheistic "Abrahamic" religions, whose perfection is Islam.
In 1986 he took part in the  very controversial Assisi Meeting for Peace as the Islam representative, which was organized by the Community Sant'Egidi  with the participation of Pope John Paul II.. His son was counted among the 500 most influential Muslims in the world of 2009. In 1998 father and son negotiated as Islamic representatives for the recognition of the Islamic religious community by the Republic of Italy. In 2000 he created the organization called the Islamic Religious Community (COREIS). He is a member of the State Islamic Council of the Italian Ministry of Interior.
Both are part of the elite interreligious establishment.

"Cardinal Schönborn Like You've Never Seen Him Before" -- Visits Sikh Temple

"Cardinal Schönborn like you've never seen him before"--
The Cardinal sitting cross legged with orange head scarf in a
Sikh Temple in Vienna 

(Vienna) "Cardinal Christoph Schönborn live you've never seen him before: cross-legged with an orange stole as a headscarf. Occasion: Schönborn attended the Sikh temple in Meidling (12th district) on Sunday, in which he paid tribute to the freedom of religion. It was the first official visit to this religious community" reported the Austrian complimentary newspaper Heute.
The Sikh religion was founded just over 500 years ago by their first Guru (master) Nanak in the Punjab. Nanak was born into a Hindu family and belonged to the caste of traders. The Punjab had been subjected in the early 13th century by Muslim sultans.  Nanak attempted to overcome this opposition and the Hindu caste system  through a combination of Hinduism and Islam in a new syncretic religion. So he gathered the Sikhs around himself, which means "student."  Nanak's birthplace is now in Pakistani Punjab, the Golden Temple of Amritsar, the center of Sikhism, in contrast to the Indian Punjab.
Worldwide, the number of Sikhs is estimated at around 25 million. 80 percent of them live in India, and three quarters of them in the state of Punjab. The Punjab is the historic and current center of Sikhism. Only two percent of Indians are Sikhs, but almost 60 percent of the inhabitants of the Punjab. In the partition of British India,  which evenly divided the Punjab between India and Pakistan, there was an exchange of populations by expulsion, deportation and resettlement. Since then, there are hardly any Sikhs living in the Pakistani Punjab.

Around 10,000 Sikhs in Austria


Cardinal Schönborn in Vienna's Sikh temple

The number of Sikh people living in Austria is estimated at 10,000, just over half of whom live in Vienna. The number of almost 3,000 in the last state religious survey of 2001 is long outdated. In the past 15 years, their share has more than tripled.
Because what was written in 2001 about the religion is no longer applicable, there is no certain information about the rapid growth of these and other foreign religions. The lack of surveys, which is based on the fact that religion is a "private matter,"  makes the quick shifts caused by mass immigration invisible.

On 24 May 2009 the Austrian Sikh community was put in the spotlight as a guru of  the Ravidas sect was murdered in their temple in Rudolfsheim-Fünfhaus (15 district of Vienna).  Sant Rama Nand was revered by his followers as a "saint." Six Sikhs attacked the worshipers present in the temple with daggers and firearms. The guru was murdered while 15 worshipers and an attacker were injured, some seriously.
The conflict had to do with the caste system. The victims were members of the lower caste Dalits, the untouchables. The attackers, also Sikhs, belonged to a higher class. For them, the Ravidasis are a despicable sect because they adore living gurus as "saints" and not just the ten classical gurus who lived from 1500 to 1800. The Ravidasis are branched mainly from the caste of Dalits, which makes the religious conflicts a caste conflict, although the Sikhs officially reject the Hindu caste system,  the Indian legal system also really doesn't recognize it either, daily life in Indian society, which includes the Sikhs, however, continue to be determined by the caste system.
The violence sparked a discussion that   cultural, historical and political conflicts are also imported by mass immigration.

No recognized religious community

 Sikhs have arrived especially since the 80's, as the newspaper publisher Mediaprint procured exemptions from the Residence Act so it could procure cheap labor for its newspaper distribution. Most remained, brought their families and received Austrian citizenship.
In Vienna there are two Sikh Temples, which  Cardinal Schönborn visited, one in Meidling (12th district) and another in Donaustadt (22nd district). Plus, there's the aforementioned Ravidas Temple in the 15th district. The Ravidasis split off after the assassination of the Sikhs and see themselves since then as an independent religious community.
Neither the Sikhs nor Ravidasis enjoy neither the status of a recognized, nor even of a registered religious community in Austria. Both are organized as "religious associations."

Grotesque Political Endorsement by Cardinal Schönborn and Catholic Societies for Agnostic and Freemason



On Sunday, May 22, there will be a runoff for presidential election in Austria held. The Austrian state is elected directly by the people. In the first round on April 24, none of the six candidates had obtained the required absolute majority. Voters will decide on Sunday between the two strongest candidates of the first round. By far the most votes were received by the 45-year old liberal vice-president of the National Council (parliament), Norbert Hofer (FPÖ) who had received 35 percent. He was followed by the 72 year old former party leader of the Greens, Alexander Van der Bellen, with 21 percent. The candidates of the two governing parties SPÖ and ÖVP each did not receive more than 11 percent of the vote in the runoff vote.

Comments from Martha Burger Weinzl

The ballot will decide formally between two opposition candidates. In reality, it was something like a choice for or against an entire power system. This is evident in that the representatives and beneficiaries of the system almost presented a block behind the green candidate, an agnostic and a Freemason - and also the Catholic Church. A culmination which can only be explained by the fear of a loss of power.

The election is an Austrian chapter with great importance for other countries, particularly the Federal Republic of Germany. It's an election that makes clear a frightening degree of disintegration of the Catholic Church.

From neutrality to open partisanship

For a long time the Catholic Church was deliberately neutral and aloof. Voting recommendations were not given any longer. This is something of yesteryear, resonating the with intimation of a sinister tone. The subliminal message of the direction "left half of the Empire," as they say in Austria, wanted to say you have learned from history. This is known to be the biggest lie of all lies in history.

It became obsolete more recently even with a neutrality. This prohibits the "institutional" Church and its sub-organizations, from recommending the "mature" faithful, to "be led" by their crosses at the ballot box.

Before the decisive second ballot of the Austrian presidential election, however, all these self-imposed inhibitions have fallen. This has revealed what was concealed before. The decline of belief in recent decades is glossed over by many, is followed in parallel and quietly with a political reversal of the Church's leadership personnel. Whoever watches the situation closely, would not be surprised. Whoever accepts the false thought control or mutilates himself, must get lost in it at some point himself.

Affinity for the Greens -- Do-gooders rather than Christians
Alexander Van der Bellen (left) and Norbert Hofer



The crucial premise: The Catholic Church in Austria, at any rate the Cardinal who's led it for 20 years in Vienna, holds with the government. The party of the Catholics was actually the Austrian People's Party, but because of the red-ruled city of Vienna and the long exclusively red government of 1970-1983 the Church "could" work with the SPÖ. And then also, ran many young Blacks to the Greens. The ÖVP responded, toothlessly and tried resignedly to chasing after the zeitgeist. This migrated all voters to the Freedom Party, which knew how to occupy the cleared fields.

The 1968 student revolt showed the neo-Marxists knew best how to convert it into hard political coin. The tangible result is the Green party. Since, it has been over-represented in the media, education and (staatsalimentierter) cultural scene, they could defer their spiritual influence, tolerated by the SPÖ, beyond party lines. Their name is already a misnomer and one of which there are several. Another is that 68 had indeed considered and demonstrated for the social question, but these were not the working sons on the barricades, but the children of the bourgeoisie. Today, children from SPÖ families go to the Greens, but the influx carried out of the ÖVP families takes place earlier and faster. It is not surprising, therefore, that the Catholic nomenclature, that hydra-like, Church-tax funded apparatus is already dripped mentally into the green pool. The green "Catholics" have not converted the Greens. They wouldn't want that anyway. It was the Greens who supported a part of the Catholic Church into apostasy. Those are precisely who takes and holds offices, does not speak for the selection process in the Church.

The "green Catholics" are like the fifth column of a strange way of thinking, which was injected into the Church. A school of thought which represents a self-imposed moral tyranny that has taken confidence with the term "do-gooders", but has less and less to do with with Christianity - which is clearly recognized by every believer. Non-Christians, but just do-gooders. The term does make the difference.

Keeping in Power: choice recommendations, which should not be

Hofburg 


Cardinal Schönborn, Archbishop of Vienna and Dominicans is used to dealing with the red power. The preservation of power, i.e. the upper class for generations has practiced survival, was taken by him like an elite calculus with his mother's milk. He therefore also has to take part in the current presidential election campaign.

He would not issue voting advice, but he let the eager media know, presenting a series of word ciphers, which consisted in a single recommendation to vote for the Green candidate, Van der Bellen. Uninhibitedly the Cardinal said in conclusion, that he thereby wished of course to make "no election recommendation."

Such things were replayed in recent days many. With only two candidates who face each other in a runoff, it's an easily workable, but a not too honest and not particularly decent, method.

The closer the election date [today], the more the nervousness. What is readable is the Catholic organizations, who followed the example of the cardinal, and dutifully made overt or covert election recommendations. Striking this: the closer the election the more direct the choice recommendation; and: all is has had the effect of "outing" Catholic associations who advertise exclusively for the green candidate. "Neutrality" is yesterday.

Keeping in Power: Gay Green Light Instead of Right to Life

Many say: "pluralism", "tolerance", "diversity", "diversity", "democracy" which are also just empty slogans to the official Catholic apparatus, which are meant as decorations for manipulating a single consensus. There must not be a deviation or dissent. There is a frightening lockstep, with such impudence as has not been since before 1968 in a dream.

Whoever is for the killing of unborn children, but finds the green light to gay important, whoever has contempt for his own, but values the stranger, has arrived mentally with the Greens. The vote recommendations of the Catholic organizations confirm: A weak Christianity becomes the plaything of other ideologies, especially the prevailing.

This was demonstrated in recent months already with an undifferentiated attitude to migration. Cardinal Schönborn even took to criticizing neighboring countries Hungary, Slovakia and the Czech Republic, who all shows that they know the word responsibility and common good, and whose bishops are of a very different opinion, to the archbishop of Vienna.

Cardinal and Catholic Associations for Agnostics and Freemasons

Election recommendations are not bad per se. But the self-imposed "neutrality phase" makes the Van der Bellen recommendation astonishing after all.

Catholic organizations, association leaders, media, the archbishop of Vienna and president of the Austrian Bishops' Conference engage in election recommendations for an agnostic and a Freemason? This is a fact in Novum. It is the signal that the mental breakdown, which has taken hold of the Catholic Church in Austria, has reached an alarming level.

The Green candidate informed the Atheistic Religious Society in Austria from his campaign office:


"Alexander Van der Bellen is not a believer in the narrow sense. He advocates a clear and strict separation of church and state, from politics to school."


According to Van der Bellen he was a staunch defender in the television debates of the abortion ideology and emphatically defended a "free access" to abortion. His "motivation" in the migration is shattered against his icy intransigence when it comes to abortion. The unborn children are engaged literally in life or death and not real or pretended need, to economic migration and population replacement for the multicultural reconstruction of Europe. Of asylum as temporary hospitality for those truly in need of protection, the green candidate never spoke anyway. Everything points for him as his supporters, to the promotion of permanent population shifts of the resident population. Ultimately, even the so-called "refugee crisis" is just another, of already numerous harmful sociopolitical experiments that were not all invented by the Greens, but are supported by them with enthusiasm.

The lodge's spirit

In television debates, Van der Bellen has been charged several times by his liberal rivals as a Freemason. In ATV he responded by saying: "This corresponds to the facts"  yet he has denied it other times. The lodges membership was confirmed in Innsbruck, and already goes back to the 70s. It was then that Van der Bellen's real academic career began. Even if one wanted to grant his occasional downplaying, apologetic statement, believing he was "but resigned sometime mid-80s", stating that he was still a university professor in Vienna, paid its annual membership fee and thus out, but included in the lists of the beaproned brothers. At least this raises the question of how the lodge's membership favored his career to associate professor in Innsbruck and then to full professor in Vienna. It's known that masons skillfully ignite smoke bombs around their lodge membership. Yet what is decisive is not the masonic apron, but the lodge's spirit: Van der Bellen has never set aside the thinking of the Loge, as his opinions daily prove.

Now what connects the cardinal and the Catholic appartschiks with him? The Vienna archbishop could refer to his Masonic father. The Lodge brothers appreciate this and have not forgotten it. Or are they already familiar in collaboration? Finally, several Red Presidents belong to the Lodge. However, the reality is far more prosaic next to personal nuances.

Catholic administrative personnel and the discernment of spirits

The Church, which has since the 60's, engaged in self destruction, which was accomplished by internal Church complicity with the relativistic secularization of society, has really let the mental dams break. Especially discernible in Catholic circles is that the difference between parties has become only rudimentary. The 68ers have successfully combated the divine and natural order, which includes the morality that corresponds to the nature of man. They have cunningly replaced it with a pseudo-morality that is worst of all, a caricature, than what Catholic morality and the church was assumed to have at that time.

Morality is not equal to morality. The Catholic morality is not the morality of the lodge. That is not something, however, readily distinguished by the heads of Catholic Organisations. To keep it that way actually helps the cogent reason the Church's drift to the left and to the open partisanship toward an attitude completely a dubious and incompatible with Christianity.

The justification of the Catholic Women's Movement (kfb), with which it calls for the election of Van der Bellen, is downright outrageous: though the liberal spokeswoman of the kfb should logically put her endorsement behind Norbert Hofer, who is a practicing evangelical Christian, while Van der Bellen agnostic, and as the former socialist Federal Minister, belongs to no church.

Of this they are angry, because they would not have wanted to say this at all, explained the kfb in "logical" consequence, that is the reason there is only an open call to vote for Van der Bellen. At the same time, the Catholic Association Women criticized a "manipulative communication style." Such is not noticed by them otherwise, not even at the ORF with its manipulative Church, abortion and currently also on election, coverage. For those who think the same, it probably really does not stand out.

The system preserving itself 

It is about the preservation of the system. In the 70 years since the war, Austria has established a system that has a network of parties, of narrower and wider front organizations, groups and circles who exercise power. This red-black system, has been arranged by the Catholic Church. From time to time they have even been dependent on this system. There are many Green, excuses and conveniences, to solidify a system.

Nothing must be said against the predominant red-black alliance. It is the government alliance. From this comes the money for kindergartens, schools, hospitals, etc. The Greens are counted in the red part of the Alliance since the 90s and are considered in some circles as the "finer" variant to articulate its proximity to the system, without needing to be directly the SPÖ or the ÖVP. They are considered as the really electable among them, by those who are wealthy enough to imagine that therefore already can afford experiments the whole country.

This is also the reason for the Church's silence on leftist social experiments, the silence for mass murder of innocent children, to homosexualization and genderisation. The "social consensus" should not be disturbed. So it is of the ÖVP, and those which in turn interact wich the Archbishop's Palace in Vienna. It takes place at the elite level. Alexander Van der Bellen takes sociopolitical issues that are diametrically the opposite of what the Catholic Church teaches or should teach in Austria, but only does partly due to the system.

Norbert Hofer positions represented: no "business as usual" in the issue of immigration, strengthening direct democracy and mandatory referendums on major issues, a no to TTIP, promoting child-rich Austrian families, demand for another EU to oppose terror. This is especially true for his announcement, if necessary, to dismiss the government, and leave it at a standstill and the government, whereas previously, the President was reliable as a guarantor of the system.

Grotesque alliances for green candidates

Anyway, no one should say, the Cardinal and the Association of Catholics don't know what they do. They know it very well, and they do it willingly. Their recognition and place in the system are at stake. With the election of the liberal candidates many things would change. It would be high time. But system representatives have to fear a loss of influence by any change that is not controlled by themselves. This explains the strange, sometimes grotesque, and unholy alliances that have been forged prior to 22 May, the day of election.

It is the part of desperate fear system representatives have of a loss of benefice, their personal benefices. This also explains the snakes of the state manipulators who willingly jostle to make public endorsements for Van der Bellen. This also explains the attitude of most mass media, who have received the lucrative advertising contracts from the government and government-related fields.

There is a whole system of power and cliques, which are threatened with deselection this Sunday. Some feel this in their bones. That Church and Catholic association representatives can be carried away by such a one-sided political partisanship without distress, on behalf of the Church, is close to irresponsible abuse. It does it do great harm to Austria and Austrians, but especially the Catholic Church.

That explains why so many the ranks and names - and even part of this system - or those otherwise who have no rank and name, would move all the levers to guide to "their" victory. According to the state radio ORF "all" are for the green candidate. This is why shrewd observers wonder why Van der Bellen did not achive a high absolute majority in the first ballot. What it means: not "all" Austrians are for Van der Bellen, but all do-gooders. The distinction is important to understand what is happening in the public sphere. The democratic education conceals the difference between elites and mass. A mistake. It's important not to exclude the possibility in one's own thinking, especially not ignore the elites, or their influence.

In the SPÖ headquarters they had to quickly install a new chancellor before the runoff election, because after that things might not go so easy. Coincidence? Not at all.

Norbert Hofer: "The system is not important to me, it's the people who are important."

The liberal federal presidential candidate, Norbert Hofer, said in a duel with ATV, that he could actually rather put up placards throughout Austria, because it explains much and answered succinctly:

"The system not important to me, it's the people who are important."

On election night, it will be seen whether the system elite can force its will through brute force and the manipulative use of the state broadcasting system again, or if the Austrians have preserved in their majority to decide freely and with common sense.

Austria's elections have inclined for decades, as elections have been, if the access to the media, the fourth power in the state, but which actually not covered by the Constitution, would actually be democratic, balanced and fair. The Catholics of Austria will hopefully know to discern the spirits.

Catholic Cardinal and Masonic Lodge Master (at least honorary)

(Rom) Gianfranco Ravasi has been a Cardinal of the Catholic Church since  2010. Since March 2016 he has also been an honorary Masonic Grandmaster.  Thanks to the Grand Lodge of Spain for a letter which the Cardinal sent last February to "dear Brother Freemasons." 

Cardinal Ravasi's Letter 

Just weeks after Cardinal Ravasi, President of the Pontifical Council for Culture, addressed his letter to the Lodges, these have shown themselves to be pleased by the recognition shown them by the prominent ecclesiastical figure, and  at the highest levels.

For the beaproned brothers, "the Cardinal's words are a recognition of our noble goals," so says the Grand Lodge.

"Freemasonry is incompatible with Christianity, even if Cardinal Ravasi calls himself 'honorable Brother Gianfranco,' in order to build a bridge to the Lodge," writes news site InfoVaticana.

 Ravasi's letter which was originally published on14. February in the business newspaper  Il Sole 24, was an appeal to overcome the centuries of confrontation between the Church and the Lodge.  

Steht Kardinal Ravasi auf derselben Stufe mit Oscar de Alfonso Ortega, dem Großmeister der Großloge von Spanien?
Is Cardibal Ravasi on the same level with Oscar de Alfonso Ortega, the Grandmaster of the Grand Lodge of Spain?

The letter did not call into question the numerous condemnations by the Church, not even the statements of incompatibility by the Magisterium and the ban on Lodge membership in the Codex of Canom Law, explicitly in 1917, implicitly in the 1983. Cardinal Ravasi wrote however :

"These various declarations of incompatibility between the two affiliations of the Church and the Lodge do not impede dialogue."

At the same time he mentioned the dialogue of the German bishops with the Lodges in the 1970s.  Because, so says the Cardinal, there are commonalities, "like the dimension of community, good will, the battle against materialism, the worth of the human person and learning about one another."  

Cardinal Ravasi did not mention that a Catholic who is the member of a Lodge is in serious sin. And automatically excluded from the Sacraments.

The answer of the Grand Lodge in Spain 

The Grand Lodge of Spain is one of the most influential Masonic associations in the Iberian peninsula answered the "honorable Brother Gianfranco." This is the manner that the aproned brothers address each other, as soon as they have stood initiation.  The Cardinal's letter ships "great courage," said the Grand Lodge.

The honorary mention went so far as to actually recognize Cardinal Ravasi  as "Master"  and imply that he is an initiate.  The "Master" is a Lodge Brother  who has presided directly over a Lodge, and directs their work. In the last passage of the Grand Lodge's letter it reads:

"The  Cardinalhas extended his brotherly hand in which he called us brothers.  It's a relationship in which anyone can participate, when they enter our Order.  The dear brother initiate strives for virtue as in every mystery school, of which the Master embraces. The mystery schools seek the self-transformation of each one who strives for the higher.  If the initiate is accepted and elected as a master, to lead the work of the Lodge, to which he is called by all, he ceases to be addressed as dear brother.  His new treatment, as honorable brother, means re same for the Church as it does for the Freemasonry: he is someone of wise and flawless good.  That is the freemasonic ideal. Honorable brother Gianfranco, thank you for the courageous gesture, which has opened a space for brotherly harmony. Like all of the worthy, you call into labor."
