all thl that pope und bishops should
have condemned Free Masonry? And
Is It nut n great, duly that they have
fullilleil ami a great service rendered
to humanity. For two oonlurlnw, dur
ing which Free Masonry ha been, I
will not nay founded, but developed In
Kurnpe, the popen havo never ceased
their anxlou watch over it move
ment. And In tlm Klgbleenth century
two noverelgn ponlllTn, Clement, XII.
and tho learned liertedlct XIV, and
lastly I 'Inn JX, pronounced against thin
association the most explicit and most
solemn condemnations. I't it nulllee

celebrated bull ijuo (Jravlore, of Ijoo
XII, and the recent iillocul Ion of I'lun
The I'oiio Ifco XII, In thl bull llmt

Lastly, I'lu IX, recalling In hi al
locution of the 2.'th of September, I He.",
the warning given to Free Manonry by
hi predecessor, continue thun
"Unfortunately, these warning have
not the hoped-for result; and we look
upon It, therefore, a a duly to con

concern all Chr istian of every condi

Belgian bishops, In a collective circu

"It I positively forbidden to lake
any part In thl nndety, and those who

It I for thin reason that the Irish
bishop, assembled together In Dublin,
In April, JHnl, In a pastoral letiVr ad

among other contemporary peril, say
It Infer ii a nacrcd duty to warn you
to avoid thene merct nmjletlc, and
cn cially that of the Free Maon,"
Finally, not to multiply quotation
any further, It I for thl reanon that
the blshopn of free North America, an
nomblcd In council at Haltlmore, glint
ed out and umfnlrnoiisly condemned the
wndtty of Free Mason, In a pastoral
letter addrenned to their dlmienan.
In France, how often ha not the
episcopate lifted up her voice to H

demount rate the Incompatibility of
Free Maonry with Christianity (Ito

and America, they equally think in
