Freemasons in the Vatican and A List of Members! Illuminati Exposed!

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

The Vatican rules over an estimated 2 billion people. They have enormous investments with the Rothschilds in Britain, France, and the USA. The Catholic church is the biggest financial power, wealth accumulator, and property owner in existence. Possessing more material wealth than any bank, corporation, giant trust, or government. The Pope, who is the visible ruler, is one of the richest men on planet Earth!

With its unparalleled ability to influence more than a billion people, it certainly wields enough power to manipulate the masses. With all the piety and devotion to good that seems to amass on its grounds every day, what’s a little satanic ritual or two?

New World Order masterminds have infiltrated the ranks of the Vatican and countless records of Popes have surfaced on their infamous, mysterious, secretive dealings with the Freemason group. The video below exposes such dealings and unveils the long held history of the Vatican Church and its infiltration from this devious group….the Illuminati.


Bishop Williamson speaks out about his encounter with Freemasons in the Vatican….

      not richer than the bankers, thats absolute rubbish and the all seeing eye is an ancient judeo christian symbol for
      God the creator just because it was hijacked does not make IT EVIL IN ITSELF.

      as for the vatican takeover by freemasonry – that’s happened and god will destroy rome on account of it.

          The All-Seeing-Eye? Really?

          I was going to take a big ol’ swing at that low, lazy slowball…

          But then I thought better of it.

          You can’t get much more wrong than that. It’s like saying water runs uphill. If you’re going to be THAT wrong, then what’s the point of this pursuit? You really don’t stand a chance once you’ve sunk your fangs into such a backwards idea. You have failed before you started.



          This has become — well, we’re not really worshiping them, so we can make as many as we want. Besides — they’re really old.

          Not as old as Satan… but probably pretty close.

      What has been erased is the history behind JFK’s “Secret Society” speech.
      The “Monolithic” group is called the “Covens of Azazel” which is the coven name of Alexander who created them.
      They are defined as “The Papal, Royal, & Federal”
      The Federal Covens of Selene, the Babylonian Slave queen, his wife. Whose Saxon name was Queen Elizabeth 1. “Gloriana/Inanna” whom the hebrew coven named “Lilith”. They have erased the entire Coven Age, which created all religions. This is the branch of ‘Solomon’. His Egyptian coven name was ‘SET’ and his sumerian name was “An”. “SET-An” became called by common man “Satan”. The ‘Terrible Judge’. In our history it was written as “SET, the Leviathan Class Serpent of the Abyss, Father of the Branch of Reptiles, ruler of the Underworld”. Which is why ‘Solomon’ controlled Demons.
      In Babylon Ur (Iran), his name was ‘Suleiman’. This is who invaded. This was not a thousand years ago. ‘C.E.’ is dated on newspapers circa 1901. Alexanders coven name in Babylon was ‘Massawa, the great architect’ god of his coven Freemasons.

      “AL, EL, IL, are Latin Suffixes for god El(ohiem) with whom man is at war with in the war in Heaven” In Babylon, their name was “Illi/Illu” and “Illumi”, “Lilith’s Shining Ones”.
      “Bible” is “By-B(a)-El” the hebrew coven called him “king of hell”, Roman Coven called him “Caesar Ptolemy”, the Egyptian coven called him “Osiris”, Sumerian name of ‘Enlil’ and the saxon called him “Mad” King George, the Incestuous twin of Elizabeth 1, “Isis”.
      “Torah” is “To Ra” the saxon name was Alexander, his sumerian name was Marduke, his coven in Egypt was Wicca and he was the ‘horned god’. In Rome he was “Baphomet” and he created coven ‘Caesar’, etc.
      “Koran” is military ‘Core An’, which was Suleiman.

      They created the pharisees with the Hebrew law “All priest Kings are gods on Earth by divine decree of god El, and must have a god name” They have removed the hebrew coven law of names: “In every land and every language the conquering children of SET (“3 Ptolemy’s) were given a name”
      “All priest kings must have a title name, a common name, and a coven name, for each coven they create per the blood pact of coven ant. When promoted the name must change to reflect the promotion”
      After the war they divided up the power structure to protect “Lilith” so that she could not be ‘blamed’ for the slaughter done by Covet Means. “Covet Means” is when they altered their Legislated codified laws, the Money system, and the Merchant pricing to set up a specific system of default; whereby they could use color of law to use Force of Law (corporate police) to seize what they had coveted. In main it is allodial lands.

      In 1917 they codified and altered the Canon laws, and the Common Law books and removed their names as the opposing side of the war. The papal then placed the Federals, who were called the “Merchants and the Money lenders at the Temple” in Babylon, over the populations as ‘corporate government’.

      The Legislator Branch is the Vatican. The Executor Branch is Queen Elizabeth. The Judicial Branch is the Federals, who are the lesser nobility of Elizabeth.

      They launched a war of conquest, and they created the “Vatikan” which translates to “Vater-I-Kin” ‘Father of Kin’. As a council for the 13 families of SET, they are responsible for holding the records of the bloodline and passing the title of pharisees to the next in line. This is why the Vatican claims to ‘own’ all land by conquest.

      The “NWO” is the acronym of “own”. The papal is and always has been the Coven of Illuminati, it is their god. This is in the Coptic record. “Elizabeth” has always owned the Coven of Freemasons.

      They believe they fight the war in heaven for their god SET, against Mankind. They own this system because you are living in the system of slavery set up by them. All Religions, All corporations, corporate government, money & banking, commerce, taxation on man, maritime laws, all of this is their created slave system.

      This is why so many notice, all justice is removed and this is not just america, it is everywhere. Scotland yard is complaining that the Freemason owned Justice system will not prosecute or charge the bankers despite provable evidence of theft and fraud. They are protecting Elizabeth. And her thefts directly tie to the Vatican. You are dealing with a large scale company store system set up by Rothschild the vizier, and run by the Vatican and the Royals.

      “14 March 2013 Last updated at 09:16

      How many Roman Catholics are there in the world?
      There are an estimated 1.2 billion Roman Catholics in the world, according to Vatican figures. ”

      • Pix

        And they don’t underestimate, but grossly exaggerate. The real number is probably closer to 500’000.

        • Pix


          Lisa would have been right up to a couple hundred years ago. She’s hit the nail on the head. Christ-I-Anti is a dark age political dictatorship. All dictatorships are the same, they all enslave and claim ownership of the population, they all demand people believe bs, they all vility minority groups to give the rest of the population someone to attack, they all imprison dissenters, they all torture people, and they all commit mass murder.


      • Lisa Haven

        They rule more than the Roman Catholics! LOL!

        • MrAnthony

          Lisa, your comment is vapid. Saying that the Vatican rules over people is like saying Costco rules over people. It’s a religion, not a government.

          In other words, people join by their free will, and can leave by simply not practicing.

          Your anti-Catholic hatred is so obvious, and it’s rooted in complete ignorance, as your posts clearly demonstrate. Heck, you’ve called the Pope “Saint Francis” more than once in some of them. LOL

          I highly doubt you bothered to read the Encyclical Letter, an image of which you posted above. If you had, you would find this:

          “Their chief dogmas are so greatly and manifestly at variance with reason that nothing can be more perverse. To wish to destroy the religion and the Church which God Himself has established, and whose perpetuity He insures by His protection, and to bring back after a lapse of eighteen centuries the manners and customs of the pagans, is signal folly and audacious impiety.”

          Educate yourself:

        • BEEF SUPREME

          “It’s a religion, not a government.”

          Vapid, you say?

          The Roman Rite is THE repository for THE religion — as there is only ONE religion in this world. But more than that, your cherished entity refers to ITSELF as a Monarchical Hierarchy. A Monarchical Hierarchy is the EPITOME of government, and it is nothing else.

          The Roman Rite IS global governance.

          Anytime you want to tango on the debate floor, Anthony… just say the word.

          That is, of course, if you care to take a break long enough from castigating women. And one helpful piece of advice you didn’t ask for — the next time you take it upon yourself to arrogantly ‘correct’ a lady, you could at least do her the courtesy of actually being right.

        • MrAnthony

          Have at it Beef. Lisa is full of mistakes, from not bothering to read the Encyclical Letter to misnaming the Pope as “Saint Francis.” Her sex has nothing to do with it; her idiocy has everything to do with it.

          Those are facts. All you can do is spout a bunch of paranoid gobbledygook.

          In point of fact, Roman Catholic theology posits that the Word of God is passed down via Sacred Scripture and Sacred Tradition.

          If you’re going to the trouble of insulting me, at least get it right. And if you bother to post some nonsense news stories, I’ll be happy to be there to correct your paranoid fantasies too.

        • BEEF SUPREME

          “In point of fact, Roman Catholic theology posits that the Word of God is passed down via Sacred Scripture and Sacred Tradition.”

          Let me hasten to disabuse you of any fatuous belief that I am beholden to the whim or diktat of the Roman Rite. Sacred Teaching and Sacred Tradition have nothing to do with me, for the reason that they have nothing to do with Scripture, except to lie about Scripture.

          Whenever arguing with a Catholic or with a Rabbi, I never have to worry about doctrinal differences for the very simple reason that both doctrines, yours and theirs, are counterfeit. The reason I say counterfeit, is because neither the Roman Rite nor the Rabbis have ever once been able to point to a single, solitary source of evidence in support of their common claim. The claim held in common by both the Rabbis and the Roman Rite is that they have both inherited authorization to alter what has been written in the Scriptures. Despite the fact that the Almighty has stated and repeated that no part of His Word may at any time be altered, and that He Himself does not change any more than His Word changes, both the Roman Rite and the Rabbis insist that they have been granted authority to CHANGE THE WORD. Both the Rabbis and the Roman Rite make this claim maliciously and fraudulently. Both the Rabbis and the Roman Rite are animated by the same spirit of lies, spawned by the Father of Lies himself.

          The Rabbis are liars. The Roman Rite itself is a lie. Rome has no authority except that which it has been granted at the hands of The Adversary, and that authority permitted to stand for a season by the Most High. The Roman Rite is the enemy of YHWH. Nothing coming from Rome has legitimacy except in the Religion of the Seven Nations. Rome is the seat of ONE WORLD Religion. The prince of that power is the Prince of the Powers of the Air.

          “If you’re going to the trouble of insulting me, at least get it right.”

          I have. You are a man who has allowed himself to be swayed by the awesome and deceiving power of the Shining One. You have been mesmerized and convinced by the grandiose architecture, fancy costumes, rubies, gold and diamonds. You have prostrated yourself at the altar of ancient tradition, when the Messiah Himself has spoken in no uncertain terms against that very tradition. You look at the Basilica (serpent) of Saint Peter and see the seat of the avarice, luxury, opulence and insane wealth – and somehow you fall for the outlandish fantasy that this Vaticanus (Divining Serpent), has any meaningful or legitimate connection with the Son of the Most High Creator of the Heavens and the Earth. In this world Anthony, it isn’t possible to be more wrong than you are. And do you tell me to ‘get it right’?

          “And if you bother to post some nonsense news stories, I’ll be happy to be there to correct your paranoid fantasies too.”

          I don’t post stories. Sometimes I answer stories and sometimes the comments they generate. And to the best of my ability, I oppose the lies and profane doctrine I see masquerading as something legitimate; pretending to be something of true value.

          The Way to the Father is THROUGH the Messiah. The Messiah has come in the flesh and has left us with the lessons we need to do what we must do, according to HIS Way and according to HIS Commandments. Any man, group of men, or institution that claims some OTHER way of attaining the promise of the Covenant – apart from or in contradiction to that Instruction given to us in the Law, the Prophets, the Gospels and the Letters – is rooted in the Serpent’s Seed, the Doctrine of Demons, and the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil.

          The Roman Catholic Church is the Ministry of Death.

        • LibertyJude

          Lisa is correct on her comment, here…because the Roman Catholic Church is not the only church that “they” (Judo/Masonic evil) rule over! The sad truth is that they have infiltrated all religions…but there is something you can do about it. Learn more at

      • SuiteCaroline

        The difference in the numbers is due to the non-Catholic staff that the Vatican hires to do their dirty-work. They use outsiders because the are easily expendable. And I don’t mean that they’ll get fired….they will never be seen again is more like it.

    • essene

      Pope Leo warned against freemasonry and forbid all Catholics from joining to the point of excommunication! This is very sloppy journalism and Lisa should be embarrassed to post such trash !

    • Louis

      The Vatican — which is the voice of God on earth and spiritually reigns over all the earth (which belongs to God) — diplomatically ministers to all kinds of people and always has. So what else is new?

      By castigating and slandering the Vatican’s crucial and mandatory diplomatic mission, Lisa Haven has made a complete fool of herself.

      • Neo

        You might just look the fool when you find out who the false prophet is :grin:

        • Pix

          All prophets are false. There is no knowing the future for a fact. There would be no room for freewill, only predestination to follow the known future, exactly like a preprogrammed Sim. For which we are judged thousands of years before we are even born.

          Think about it. If you knew the future of your children for a fact, that they turn out evil, would you create them anyway? Is so, why?.. For the pleasure of torturing them for all eternity?

          It’s nonsense. :wink:

        • Truthseeker


          “There is no knowing the future”??????? Really ??????????????????

          Then when the farmer plants corn it is a guess on his part what will come up?

          God Created the minds of man, God can search the minds of man.

          God knows that if a very beautiful women dressed like a whore is paraded in front of what used to be normal men, do you not think God would know exactly what will occur in the minds of those men and what actions a “normal” man would then take?

          I say normal because most men today are just girlie men and I am told most girls are bisexual.

          Knowing the mind of man, God can see the future. The laws of physic predict the future.
          All physical law predicts the out come.

          Pix your mind is limited by your surroundings and I would guess it is a female mind and most females lack strong logic and If you are a male homosexual then you have a female mind.

          You have no knowledge of the TRUE GOD only of the god of this world.

        • Pix


          “Then when the farmer plants corn it is a guess on his part what will come up?”

          That’s a brain dead comparison, you buy particular seed, if it turns out to be not the seed you paid for, you can claim back from whoever sold it to you.

          Anyone can guess the future based on what normally happens in similar circumstances. You cannot know the future for a fact. Farming is a gamble against the climate and a million and one other things that can destroy a crop.

    • The Marian Catechist

      Pope Leo XIII condemned freemasonry in an encyclical many years ago. Any Catholic who joins them automatically excommunicates himself. This applies to clergymen as well as laymen. Thus, any priest, bishop, or even cardinal who affiliates himself with the masons is ipso facto expelled from the Church. Hence, the holiness and integrity of the Church Itself is safeguarded, in spite of the betrayal of its individual members.

      Satan will stop at nothing to destroy, defame, and discredit the Bride of Christ. He uses a very simple tactic: kill the faith of the clergy and the clergy will kill the faith of the people. Do not fall into this trap. REMIND the priests of Jesus Christ what they were ordained for. In this age, it is the laity who must keep our shepherds in check. If the “shepherds” see enough “sheep” attacking the “wolves,” hopefully the shepherds will take a hint and join the fight to rid the spirit of evil attacking Christ’s Church from within.

      No need to worry. We know how the story ends. Mary crushes the head of the serpent by the power of her Divine Son. We win.

      • Omega Files

        @Mary’s slave…”Mary crushes the head of the serpent by the power of her Divine Son”

        You can’t be serious. Mary was not chosen because of her sainthood, but because of her uncontaminated bloodline that can be traced back through the generations to God’s promise with the seed of Abraham and Sarah (Genesis 17:18-19).

        Colossians 2:18: “Let no man beguile you of your reward in a voluntary humility and worshipping of angels, intruding into those things which he hath not seen, vainly puffed up by his fleshly mind.”

        1 Corinthians 10:20: “But I say, that the things which the Gentiles sacrifice, they sacrifice to devils, and not to God: and I would not that ye should have fellowship with devils.”

        According to legend, Nimrod (Osiris) had a wife named Semiramis (Isis/Columbia), whom bore a son by the name of Tammuz (Horus). After Nimrod’s death, Semiramis began preaching that Tammuz was Nimrod reborn. Nimrod becomes the satanic power behind Tammuz, Semiramis becomes the false prophet, and Tammuz takes on attributes of a false Christ. Semiramis declared that Tammuz was supernaturally conceived and that he was the savior of mankind. Semiramis knew of the story of a coming messiah, conceived through an occult virgin birth, and was sentenced to death only to be resurrected. Tammuz gains his power and authority because of Nimrod’s previous position. His mother proclaims that Nimrod has been reborn, so in a sense, Nimrod has been resurrected, and Tammuz is just the vessel he is using. After his death, Tammuz descends into the underworld and through the weeping of his mother he is resurrected in the form of vegetation. His death was celebrated by throwing a log into a fire and letting it burn all night. Once the log was burned up, they celebrated the resurrection of Tammuz by erecting and decorating a tree [obelisk - phallus], which is where we get the Yule Log and Christmas tree traditions. The Bible mentions Tammuz only once, but it is in reference to his death being part of pagan worship.

        Ezekiel 8:14-15: “Then he brought me to the door of the gate of the Lord’s house which was toward the north; and, behold, there sat women weeping for Tammuz. Then said he unto me, Hast thou seen this, O son of man? turn thee yet again, and thou shalt see greater abominations than these.”

        So Nimrod is the originator of the first major rebellion against God on Earth, just as Lucifer initiated the rebellion in heaven. After his death, Nimrod was deified as the god Baal [ball], just as Lucifer is referred to as the god of this world. This sheds light on why both God and Moses were so mad about the worshipping of Baal in Exodus 32. Baal worship extended all the way back to Babylon and was an abomination to God. Semiramis becomes the false prophet by getting people to worship Tammuz, just as the false prophet will get people to worship Satan through the antichrist. Some believe that Satan will bear a son that will become the antichrist (Genesis 3:15). Others believe that Satan will simply empower the antichrist. Yet another group believes that Satan will possess the man that is to become the antichrist. Either by design or coincidence, the Nimrod story contains all three views. Semiramis conceives Tammuz with Nimrod (Baal) who then inhabits and empowers his own son.

        Over time, Semiramis/Columbia/Isis became known as the Mother Goddess [mother earth – Gaia] and the Queen of Heaven, under names Ishtar, Eostre, Astarte, Ostera, and Eastre. All of these names are where we derive the word for, and the tradition of, Easter. Semiramis was associated with fertility and one symbol used to represent her was a rabbit (a symbol of sexual promiscuity, not virginity). As time went on, Semiramis was said to have originally hatched from a giant egg, leaving us with the Easter egg as a permanent part of modern society which wrongly perceives Easter as a holiday connected to the Virgin Mary.

        Lynn Picknett: “In February 1858, fourteen-year-old Bernadette Soubirous had discovered a strange creature, apparently suspended between the branches of a tree. It glowed, smiled and beckoned. The future Catholic Saint did not, as in the Hollywood version, fall enraptured to her knees, but ran home to grab a bottle of Holy water to throw at ‘that thing’, as she called the vision. She believed it to be a demon, sent by the devil to lure her to doom, and perhaps she was right…She took her extraordinary secret to the parish priest, the only man of letters she knew. History might have taken a different turn, had he not been a fierce defender of Mariolatry at a time when the status of the Virgin was being challenged within the Catholic Church.” The priest spun this phantasm into evidence for Marian dogma, and the rest is history. Astonishingly, Bernadette was heralded as a mystic, canonized as a saint in 1933, and even given her own feast day on the sixteenth of April.

        Dr. Thomas Horn: “In 1917 three children (who would later become seers), Lucia Santos and her two cousins Francesco and Jacinta Marto, were tending sheep when they beheld an apparition of, what they would later refer to itself as, ‘a lady from heaven’. The apparition told them to come to the same place – Cova da Iria (Irene’s Cove, a place located near the town of Fatima, Portugal) – on the 13th day of the following month. The children told their parents about what they had seen and this set off an uproar in the town. The apparitions continued for months, finally culminating in the local priest instructing the children to ask the apparition for a sign. They did as they were asked, and the apparition told them that the following month, which was October, there would be a sign, for all to see. The next month upwards of seventy thousand people gathered in the field at Cova da Iria. It had been raining all day, and there was a thick layer of clouds overshadowing the crowd. A cross section of humanity gathered that day: bankers, peasants, clergy, bakers, young, old, reporters, believers, and skeptics alike all waited for the sign that the apparition had promised would appear. The appointed time for the ‘sign’ to manifest, which was noon, came and went, and nothing happened. The crowd grew restless. An hour passed and one of the ‘seers’ called out, ‘It’s the Lady’. The crowd could not see her, but the children apparently did, and everyone waited to see what would happen next. The dark sky suddenly parted to reveal what many onlookers described as ‘the sun’. It spun around throwing off an array of colors and then, to the terror of everyone, began to fall in a pendulum like motion to Earth. What followed was mass hysteria, as people thought the end of the world was upon them. Some dropped to their knees, while others ran about screaming hysterically. This event is now called ‘the Miracle of the Sun’. This event has been approved by the church and has been a source of inspiration and faith for millions of Christians. By church approval, I mean that the event of Fatima has been examined by the Catholic Church and deemed to conform to the true teachings of Jesus Christ and is in harmony with the church’s teachings.”

        Dr. Jacques F. Vallee and Eric Davis: “It will be recalled that the events at Fatima involved luminous phenomena, atmospheric and thermal effects, and descriptions of an apparently metallic disk in the sky, while many of the 70,000 witnesses also experienced spiritual psychological effects. The main percipients reported psychic states conducive to a form of extrasensory communication with a non-human being assumed to be the Virgin Mary.”

        Pope Pius XII: “The sun, which was still quite high, looked like a pale, opaque sphere, entirely surrounded by a luminous circle.” The disc-shaped object “moved outward slightly, either spinning, or moving from left to right and vice versa. But within the sphere, you could see marked movements with total clarity and without interruption.”

        That this sort of Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon (UAP) is associated with Mary is astonishing; however, what makes this especially interesting is that this pope approved the Fatima apparitions in 1940 and then consecrated the entire world to the Immaculate Heart of Mary two years later. More provocative is that the pope saw the spinning spherical anomaly on the day he defined the dogma of the Assumption of Mary – the Catholic belief that Mary ascended bodily into heaven – which he, himself, made official dogma shortly thereafter. In other words, this UFO sighting inspired Pope Pius XII to promulgate the dogma of the Assumption!

    • Voice of Reason

      There probably are Freemasons within the Catholic Church, and if so they are contravening the teachings of the Church and therefore are not true Catholics – they’re anti-Catholics. However, this article does not provide the slightest shred of evidence to PROVE Freemasonry within the Holy See or the Catholic Church as a whole, nor does it refer to any reliable sources.

      Video #1 – footage removed by YouTube due to copyright infringement. Nothing there.

      Video #2 – “Bishop” Richard Williamson is a sedevecantist and a Lefebvrist who was expelled from the Society of St. Pius X in 2012 and excommunicated from the Catholic Church TWICE for heresies, once in 1988 (later lifted) and again in 2015. He’s also an anti-Semite and a Holocaust denier, for which he was prosecuted, found guilty and fined in a German court in 2009. His appeal lawyer was the former leader of a Neo-Nazi group. As Williamson is no longer a bishop let alone a priest, nor is he a member of the Catholic Church due to his excommunication, he is in no position to speak authoritatively about the Church. This is the equivalent of getting a naughty student to criticise the school he was expelled from. Well, he would, wouldn’t he? Not a reliable source.

      Video #3 – Who is that guy? Where is that list coming from? Again, where is the evidence? He is standing at a lectern in what could be a Catholic church, with a large Rosary and a painting of St. Joan of Arc in the background (note the Masonic Fleur de Lis symbol). But it could equally be a public hall or a Masonic hall, and the Catholic symbols are there merely as props for an anti-Catholic rant. Is he some far-right, Christian fundamentalist/Protestant? We don’t even know his name let alone his credentials, if any. Not a reliable source.

      Photo #1 – The congregation of the Knights of Malta. Yes, there is evidence that some KofM are linked to Freemasonry but this photo is not one of them. Not every KofM is a Freemason, just as not every Freemason is a KofM, and not every Freemason is a Catholic, or vice versa. That’s like saying, “all postboxes are red, apples are red, therefore postboxes are apples.” Logically false. This photo proves nothing.

      Photo #2 – Cardinal Archbishop O’Connor of New York with 2 smiling Freemasons – on first appearances this looks very dodgy indeed… if the photo is real. It doesn’t prove O’Connor was a Freemason himself, but it certainly suggests a friendship, relationship or an endorsement of Freemasonry, which would be in contravention of the teachings of the Catholic Church. If the photo is real, I am amazed a Catholic prelate, and a highly educated one at that, would allow himself to be photographed in such a compromising situation. Seems unlikely. Could it have been photoshopped? Could it have been disseminated by Freemasons / anti-Catholics as anti-Church propaganda? I’d have to investigate this further before making my mind up – one photo is not compelling or sufficient evidence, especially when the source is not given. That guy in the cardinal’s outfit doesn’t even look like O’Connor.

      Photo #3 – If you had bothered to read Pope Leo XIII’s 1884 encyclical “Humanum Genus” you would have found that this Pope was actively and vociferously AGAINST Freemasonry. The encyclical is available to read in full on the Vatican website. The photo of the booklet cover proves the OPPOSITE of what you’re trying to show: that the Holy See does (and always did) condemn Freemasonry, which is why Freemasons hate the Catholic Church.

      Photo #4 – To any normal, rational, right-thinking member of society this is a photo of Pope Benedict XVI using his left hand in a paternal, affectionate, kindly way over the hand of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. His right hand is clasping her fingers very lightly out of respect and courtesy – royal protocol dictates you don’t grab the hand of a monarch and pump it up and down. She in turn has not thrust her hand into his, palm-to-palm. This is a formal meeting of two heads of state. There is nothing remotely Masonic about the handshake. It proves nothing. The number of photographs proliferating on the internet of so-called Masonic gestures between world leaders does not mean they ARE Masonic, nor that they are Freemasons. To suggest that they are is post-hoc rationalisation.

      The boy in a kilt as a symbol of the Scottish Rite? Oh please, that is really clutching at straws! The kilt was originally a military garment and denoted clan affiliation – nothing to do with Freemasonry. It’s now part of the national dress of Scotland. People wear one on special occasions. With a little bit of research you’ll find that this photo was taken during Pope Benedict XVI’s historic 4-day state visit to Britain in September 2010. (Historic because it was the FIRST visit by a Pope to the United Kingdom.) Her Majesty received the Pope at the Palace of Holyroodhouse in Edinburgh, chosen because she usually spends her summer breaks at Balmoral Castle in Scotland, so it’s not in the least surprising or unusual for one of the boy attendants to be wearing a kilt. Kilts are not Masonic symbols in themselves. Ludicrous to suggest they are. How to insult a nation!

      If you really want to explore Freemasonry within British royalty, there is far more compelling evidence available on the internet. It is a well documented fact and no secret that both Prince Michael of Kent and the Duke of Kent, Prince Edward, are Grand Master Masons, but you don’t even mention them. And the fact that they are means the Queen must be too? That’s a huge leap, without foundation. Instead, a photograph of the Queen greeting Pope Benedict XVI on a state visit is meant to prove Freemasonry in the Holy See? Very flimsy. Very shoddy. Very lazy.

      The last 3 photographs of “Illuminati” symbols in Catholic churches are ancient Christian symbols which have been HIJACKED, distorted and misused by Freemasonry, as many other commentators below have already pointed out. Freemasonry as a whole aims to REVERSE the practices of the Catholic Church – Masonic rituals are designed to be a mockery of the Holy Mass. Therefore you will find the same symbols in both architecture. But that does not mean they are one and the same. Not even Freemasons claim that.

      At the end you say there are “hundreds” more similar photographs but you’ve omitted them because of space restrictions. Hundreds more, all amounting to … nothing.

      I do not doubt that there may be Freemasons operating at high levels within the Holy Roman Catholic Church, however, you have not proved who they are convincingly – as if that is possible by a non-Mason? And if there are, they should be rooted out but that is not your job or mine, it’s the Church’s responsibility. Easier said than done.

      If you want this website to be taken seriously, you will have to provide more than fantastical, illogical assumptions with little or no research and no back-up. You may even be doing Freemasonry a service by spreading untruths and lies. That’s what they want. Anything that attacks the Catholic Church is fodder for them. You’re playing right into their hands. It wouldn’t surprise me if there are Freemasons reading your article and thanking you for it.

      Finally, the Illuminati and Freemasons are not the same thing. But that’s another article.

      Think now about Daniel, the all seeing eye, well maybe that’s the little horn full of eyes that arose on one of the heads of the beast? Have you ever thought about that?
