In his Athanasius and the Church of Our Time, Bishop Rudolf Graber quoted a 1968 article from the Paris journal of the Grand Orient de France, “L’Humanisme,” foretelling the future of the Church:
“It is not the scaffold that is awaiting the Pope, it is the rise of local Churches organizing themselves democratically, rejecting the dividing-line between clergy and laymen, creating their own dogma and living in complete autonomy from Rome.” (p. 71)
By the time Bishop Graber published his book in 1974, he already saw signs that this Freemasonic prediction about the rise of local churches was being fulfilled:
“Are the local Churches not coming into being or already fully active when at synods they submit to the majority in democratic voting and thus to what is often an arbitrary number rather than the truth? . . . So, the Pope does not have the scaffolding awaiting him. How humane our age has become! It is merely the local Churches that are awaiting him, he just has to resign himself to them.” (p. 72)
This is almost a perfect description of Francis’s Synod on Synodality, with the exception of the painful reality that Francis is not merely resigned to the annihilation of the papacy — he has been doing everything in his power to absolutely bury the papacy. Indeed, most of us are so eager to see the cessation of Francis’s occupation of the papacy that the realization of the Freemasonic dream may not sound like a crushing blow to Catholicism in comparison to the prospect of Francis (or an even worse successor) retaining power in the Church.
The June 20, 2023 release of the Synod on Synodality’s Instrumentum Laboris further advances the Freemasonic dream of annihilating the papacy through the rise of “Local Churches.”
By now, most faithful Catholics have learned to effectively ignore the Synod on Synodality, but it is worth taking note of the way in which the June 20, 2023 release of the Synod on Synodality’s Instrumentum Laboris further advances the Freemasonic dream of annihilating the papacy through the rise of “Local Churches.”
