Dr Rudolf Graber, Bishop of Regensburg from 1962 to 1981, revolutionised my understanding of the New World Order and the Church’s part in its establishment. Like many Catholics who acknowledge the role of Masonry in society’s destabilisation, there seemed to be a disconnect between modern feel-good Freemasonry and the historical, militant secret societies that plotted revolutions and the destruction of the Holy Catholic Church.
It did not sit well with me, as it does not sit well with many others, to dismiss modern Masonry as a harmless pursuit, a mere shadow of its former self, perhaps – or worse, as an organisation that never intended any harm at all.
It was Bishop Graber’s book, Athanasius and the Church of our Time ( a free copy, translated via online software is available here) that provided the clue I had been looking for, the missing link, if you will. His Excellency’s book introduced me to the concept of synarchy, and it is this particular offshoot of Masonry that led the world to its current state: that of a soft totalitarianism governed by unelected technocrats.
To be quite honest, I have only this moment finished reading the good Bishop’s book, although I was introduced to it years ago. While pursuing my research on the Conciliar Church’s Hermeneutic of Rupture, Athanasius and the Church of Our Time was cited in footnote after footnote of insightful, traditionalist books. In his very slim volume, Bishop Graber picks up all the threads and pulls them tightly into an intelligent argument, explaining how synarchy grew out of Masonry and other secret societies but always had the stated goal of “a centralized world state with a centralized government planned as an anti-Church.” This is obviously a little different from Masonry’s stated goal of destroying the Church, but here we can see the genesis of plans for an ape of the Church to be built on the hollowed-out edifice of Catholicism.
According to Bishop Graber, the ex-Canon Roca, an excommunicated priest who lived in the 19th century, and whose Masonic ideas are frequently quoted in exposés of the Church’s infiltration, was a devotee of the “divine synarchy.” Roca foresaw a revolution in the Catholic Church, sparked by an ecumenical council, with a “new” dogma”, “new” ritual, and a “new” priesthood.
This plan was also laid out in a 1907 book by the Abbé Melinge, writing under the pseudonym, Dr Alta. Alta gave five key items on an agenda to remake the Church in a diabolical image:
* the appeal to esotericism
* the revolt against the structures of the Church
* the replacement of the Roman papacy by a “pluri-confessional” pontificate able to adapt to a polyvalent ecumenism such as we are seeing established today in the inter-celebration of priests and Protestant pastors
* the glorification of Christ by a new humanity
* the inversion of all the truths taught by Christ.from Athanasius and the Church of Our Time
It is quite easy to see, in fact, heartbreakingly so, how far the Masons and synarchists have progressed in their plan to create an anti-Church. Add the current threats to the Traditional Latin Mass to the already-witnessed idolatry and syncretism in the Vatican, “synodality,” inversion of truths such as Communion for adulterers and tolerance of homosexuality, and the “New Humanism” of the post-conciliar horizontal Church and it looks as though there is only a little way to go before the Church is unrecognisable. [Humanly speaking, that is. Of course, Jesus Himself was barely recognisable thanks to the tortures He received during His Passion.]
Of particular interest to me – and therefore, I assume, also to you, my dear readers – Bishop Graber also mentions an Italian novel written in 1905, in which some characters discuss the formation of a Catholic Freemasonry. The book was once on the Index and appears to be available only in the original language. In this book, the chief protagonist gathers together a select group of clergy and laity who want to see change in the Church but without an outright rebellion. The speaker recommends that this be achieved by introducing heretical ideas into the minds of the faithful, who will then pressure the hierarchy to implement the changes that they – the hierarchy – had wanted from the start. He also advised against any formal relations among members of this Catholic Freemasonry, to make it more difficult for them to be traced. Was this novel based in fact? I will leave that to you to decide. But just consider this: the heretical proponent of Catholic Masonry suggested that “ideas are stronger than men” and that it may take them fifty years to see their plans come to fruition. That was written in 1905 and fifty years later, the Council of Rupture was opened by John XXIII.
I plan to write more on the topic of synarchy as it has become obvious that this is integral to my book on Ecclesiastical Freemasonry.
