Freemasonry still excommunicable offense
VENICE, Fla. (ChurchMilitant.com) - A Florida diocese is allowing for a Memorial Mass for an active Free Mason.
An obituary for Robert Vanecek, a 33rd-degree Mason, Knight Templar and Shriner, indicates that Epiphany Cathedral in the diocese of Venice offered him a Memorial Mass on Tuesday, which was confirmed by John Cazalet, a member of Church Militant's Venice Resistance chapter.
His Mass was said by Fr. Charles Ruoff, parochial vicar. The obituary asked that donations in his honor be given to the Shriners Hospital for Children.
Freemasonry is incompatible with the Catholic faith, and it remains the most condemned belief system in the Church's history — what some consider Satan's select instrument for attacking the Catholic Church. It is a cult-like society that promotes philosophies like indifferentism, communism, relativism and naturalism.
