I was very disturbed last weekend after Easter mass at my parish, I saw one of the high rank Knight of Columbus, get into his car (he was wearing the fancy costume with the feathered hat) and his car had a huge freemasonry symbol in the front of the car. This Knight was at the mass procession, I don’t think there is a place for masonry at church. My understanding is that masonry is forbidden by the church catholic.com/quickquestions/what-does-the-church-say-about-freemasonry
What should I do about this? I am cradle catholic, my husband was raised protestant but in the last couple of years he has been seriously considering becoming catholic, he started attending RCIA this past January. His upbringing involved a lot of anti-catholic ideas, including things like the masons are behind all of this, or the jesuits are masons.
He was asked by a friend from church last year, to join the order of knights, and I was a little bit hesitant about the secrecy of the initiation ceremony, but he went ahead and joined.
After last Sunday’s mass,we both saw this gentleman getting inside his car, and we were both very disturbed. Specially him, given his background of anti-catholic legends.
Can you please share any advice as to what to do? I thought about asking my pastor, but I know he is also a knight, so not sure what to do or who to talk with.
