"And I beheld, and heard the voice of one eagle flying through the midst of heaven,
saying with a loud voice: Woe, woe, woe to the inhabitants of the earth....

Archbishop Lefebvre on FreeMasonry

 Archbishop Lefebvre on FreeMasonry

During a retreat that took place in Ecône, on September 22 1988, Archbishop Lefebvre commented on the “number of encyclicals about Freemasonry”.

 Archbishop Lefebvre 22 September 1988

Why talk about those things in a seminary, as if this be the knowledge needed to be acquired in a seminary, as if this be what was needed to be taught to the faithful? But if one does not know the source of errors, of what destroys societies, souls and the Church, we would be incompetent shepherds …it is an absolute requirement to study liberalism and to understand it well, and I believe that many of those that left us 'to rejoin Rome' so-say, did not understand what liberalism is and how Roman authorities since the Council are infested with these errors. If they had understood it, they would have fled it and would have stayed with us. This is serious, because by coming close to these authorities, one is necessarily contaminated. They represent the authority and we are subordinates … they impose on us their principles … so long as they do not rid themselves of these errors of liberalism, there is no way one can find an agreement with them, it is just not possible.

If only you knew what a night I passed after signing that infamous agreement! Oh! How I wanted morning to come so that I could give Fr. Du Chalard my letter of retraction which I had written during the night.p. 555, Marcel Lefevbre
