Free Masonry?


#1

I was wondering what the Catholic Church teaches about freemasonry? I have recently converted to Catholicism and used to be in the Church of God denomination of pentecostals , the Church of God was against free masonry , but there were many who were involved in it and kept it secret. I haven’t heard of any Catholics involved in this , but is it possible? I am not into the free mason thing but that is another story altogether .
all replies appreciated!

I submit that Pope Leo XIII wrote his “Original Prayer to St. Michael” about them:
