Taken from the Alta Vendita, published in the 19th century and given approbation by Pope Pius IX on February 25, 1861:
“The Pope, whoever he is, will never come to the secret societies: it is up to the secret societies to take the first step towards the Church, with the aim of conquering both of them. The task that we are going to undertake is not the work of a day, or of a month, or of a year; it may last several years, perhaps a century; but in our ranks the soldier dies and the struggle goes on.
We do not intend to win the Popes to our cause, to make of them neophytes of our principles, propagators of our ideas. That would be a ridiculous dream; and if events turn out in some way, if Cardinals or prelates, for example, of their own free will or by surprise, should enter into a part of our secrets, this is not at all an incentive for desiring their elevation to the see of Peter. That elevation would ruin us. Ambition alone would have led them to apostasy; the requirements of power would force them to sacrifice us.
What we must ask for, what we should look for and wait for, as the Jews wait for the Messiah, is a Pope according to our needs… With that we shall march more securely towards the assault on the Church than with the pamphlets of our brethren in France and even the gold of England. Do you want to know the reason for this? It is that with this, in order to shatter the high rock on which God has built his Church, we no longer need Hannibalian vinegar, or need gunpowder, or even need our arms. We have the little finger of the successor of Peter engaged in the plot; and this little finger is as good, for this crusade, as all the Urban Ils and all the Saint Bernards in Christendom. We have no doubt that we will arrive at this supreme end of our efforts. But when? But how? The unknown is not yet revealed.
Nevertheless, as nothing should turn us aside from the plan drawn up, and on the contrary everything should tend to this, as if as early as tomorrow success were going to crown the work that is barely sketched, we wish, in this instruction, which will remain secret for the mere initiates, to give to the officials in charge of the supreme Vente some advice that they should instill in all the brethren, in the form of instruction or of a memorandum…
Now then, to assure ourselves a Pope of the required dimensions, it is a question first of shaping for him, for this Pope, a generation worthy of the reign we are dreaming of. Leave old people and those of a mature age aside; go to the youth, and, if it is possible, even to the children… You will contrive for yourselves, at little cost, a reputation as good Catholics and as pure patriots.
This reputation will put access to our doctrines into the midst of the young clergy, as well as deeply into the monasteries. In a few years, by the force of things, this young clergy will have overrun all the functions; they will govern, they will administer, they will judge, they will form the sovereign’s council, they will be called to choose the Pontiff who should reign. And this Pontiff, like most of his contemporaries, will be necessarily more or less imbued with the Italian and humanitarian principles that we are going to begin to put into circulation. It is a small grain of black mustard that we are entrusting to the ground; but the sunshine of justice will develop it up to the highest power, and you will see one day what a rich harvest this small seed will produce.
In the path that we are laying out for our brethren, there are found great obstacles to conquer, difficulties of more than one kind to master. They will triumph over them by experience and by clearsightedness; but the goal is so splendid that it is important to put all the sails to the wind in order to reach it.
You want to revolutionize Italy, look for the Pope whose portrait we have just drawn. You wish to establish the reign of the chosen ones on the throne of the prostitute of Babylon, let the Clergy march under your standard, always believing that they are marching under the banner of the apostolic Keys. You intend to make the last vestige of the tyrants and the oppressors disappear, lay your snares like Simon Bar-Jona; lay them in the sacristies, the seminaries, and the monasteries rather than at the bottom of the sea: and if you do not hurry, we promise you a catch more miraculous than his. The fisher of fish became the fisher of men; you will bring friends around the apostolic Chair. You will have preached a revolution in tiara and in cope, marching with the cross and the banner, a revolution that will need to be only a little bit urged on to set fire to the Four Corners of the world.” (Permanent instruction of 1820, op. cit., pp. 82-90.)
Saints and Popes have warned of Freemasonry and it’s diabolical power. We know that Freemasonry has infiltrated the Church. Our Lady told us so at Quito, Ecuador.
Could Pope Francis be the Pope they have been looking for, the Pope “imbued with humanitarian principles?” The concern of the current Vicar of Christ is our happiness in this world. One example of this is his “10 tips to happiness”:
We are to kneel before God, not man. And nowadays, nobody bothers to kneel before God since they cannot even do so before His Real Presence in the Blessed Sacrament.
We were not made for comfort in this world. The Father of lies is prince of this world. We were made for greatness. We were made to conquer the world, just as Our Lord conquered the world.
Are we not truly happy when we are knowing, loving and serving God in His Holy Catholic Church? It seems not. The Pope only wants us to pat each other on the back, moreso those of false religions who are not required to convert to the Catholic Church. Proselytism has been thrown out the window. Nevermind that the very mission of the Church is to go out and baptize all nations. How ashamed the martyrs must be at the current occupants of the positions of power in the Church!
When do we hear of the things of God and the great truths of our Holy Religion? It’s as if they have been long forgotten in Rome, only to be replaced with man and the rights of man.
Freemasonry has succeeded in their deception and eclipse of the Faith. We only await Our Lady’s triumph when she will crush satan and Freemasonry beneath her feet.
