How does the church think about the Masons?

This is the 4th time that I’ve submitted a question on this forum, and to my knowledge I have never recieved an answer.

I have been reading a post about a person who recieved alot of Masonry items from a man who had passed away, and he did not know what to do with them.

There is about 4 pages of people that have responded, with answers such as …the Mason’s are a Satanic Religion etc., etc., and alot of other comments that have led me to ask this question.

What does the Catholic Church have to say about the Mason’s???
