Some of you will recall the thread in which I told you a man named Joe called me on his way to taking some more advanced vows at a Freemason ritual.
The fact that Joe called me was a cry for help. He was essentially asking me to talk him out of it. By the grace of God, I did.
Recently, however, Joe got sucked back in. I haven’t been able to learn whether this was because of peer pressure, or some other reason. I do know that Joe is not great with confrontation.
Long story short, Joe has issued what he said is a final resignation letter to the Freemasons. We will see.
In the meantime, Joe could use your prayers. I’m being told by a Traditional Catholic close to him (his sister) that strange stuff is happening, and that he’s almost crippled by fear and anxiety.
Joe believes that the source of his fear is that he is concerned that his Lodge will “come after him.” His sister believes that he is under spiritual attack.
I know the small town Lodge of which he is a member, and have met some of those men. Fearing them is irrational.
In the meantime, Joe claims he is going to a Novus Ordo service today. But, if he truly wants to get away from Freemasons, he shouldn’t attend their rituals, including the Novus Ordo Missae. So, he claims he will come with me next week.
He has said that before, and I have half a mind to tell him not to bother unless he goes to confession. But I won’t. He knows not to receive communion, and nothing beats the Mass.
Again, we will see.
Will you pray for Joe? The devil has his hooks into him, and he needs the help of a true priest.
