Archbishop Viganò: The Satanic fraud of Freemasonry and the New World Order is doomed to fail
The Daily Knight
The task that falls to us is to proclaim the truth, to remind the world that salvation comes only from Christ, the Prince of Peace, whose Lordship over the nations and over the Church, which has been usurped by a rebellious and corrupt authority, must be restored.
Editor’s note: The following text is taken from Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò’s address at a conference with the political movement Civitas in Pontmain, France, on July 29, 2023.
Do not believe that I have come to bring peace to the earth; I have not come to bring peace, but a sword. I have come separate the son from his father, the daughter from her mother, the daughter‐in‐law against her mother‐in‐law: and one’s enemies will be those of his own household. – Mt 10: 34‐36
(LifeSiteNews) — Allow me, dear friends, to extend my greetings to all the organizers of this new edition of your Université d’Été, in particular to the president of Civitas, Alain Escada; to the speakers, whose talks are clarifying the various aspects of the current civil and ecclesial crisis; and to the participants, who by their presence confirm the determination of good Catholics to fight the bonum certamen under the banners of Christ the King.
These meetings of doctrinal, cultural, and social formation are the sign of an awakening of consciences and hearts: Quia hora est iam nos de somno surgere. Nunc enim propior est nostra salus, quam cum credidimus. It is now the hour to wake from sleep, for our salvation is closer than when we first accepted the faith (Rom 13:11).
The consistency of the good
As there is a consistency of good, so there is also a consistency of evil. The good, a substantial attribute of God, also has its own consistency in what participates in it: the love of the mother who prepares the snack for her children; the solicitude of the owner of the company towards his employees; the preparation of lessons by the professor; the dedication of the doctor to patients; the availability of the priest in the care of the souls entrusted to him – all of these are consistent with the good.
Even ironing a shirt, taking care of the garden, organizing a conference, and celebrating an anniversary with loved ones becomes consistent with what we are, because we behave according to what we are: Agere sequitur esse.
Those who live in the good and therefore in the true; those who “breathe” the good – from the celebrations they attend in church to interactions with their loved ones and education in the family – do not need to want to do the good, because this comes spontaneously in a good soul. And this is exactly what grace accomplishes in us, in making actions that are in themselves morally neutral – or only humanly good – into virtuous works, where habit in the good becomes virtue and everything permeates our life; and in adding to actions that are good in the natural order that quid which elevates them in the supernatural order by directing them to a higher end.
On the other hand, when you love the Lord, what more beautiful and fulfilling thing can you wish for than to do His will? And what could be more motivating, in our relationships our neighbors, than to make known to them that True Holy One who is also supremely Good and Just? Bonum diffusivum sui, according to the scholastic adage: Good is in itself expansive, prone to spread. This is demonstrated to us by the work of the Creator, who from nothing brings into existence all things, both visible and invisible. This is confirmed to us by the work of the Redeemer, who draws the rebellious man in Adam out of the abyss of offense to the divine majesty through the sacrifice of the Man‐God.
