...and even of the Christian idea." (From The Permanent Instruction of the Alta Vendita.)

This is a small 50-page booklet that can be read online. The Permanent Instruction of the Alta Vendita was a set of Masonic letters prepared in Italy during the Victorian era (1859) that outlined a policy of surreptitiously subverting the Catholic Church into a Masonic satellite. Pope Pius IX guaranteed the documents' authenticity, and both Pope Pius IX and his successor Pope Leo XIII ordered their publication.

"And if the Popes asked that these letters be published, it is because they wanted all Catholics to know the secret societies' plans to subvert the Church from within - so that Catholics would be on their guard and, hopefully, prevent such a catastrophe from taking place" (p. 6).

This booklet does not contain the actual documents; rather, it simply provides intelligent commentary on them and other Masonic documents clearly outlining a plan to infiltrate the Roman Catholic Church and induce the hierarchy to embrace modernism and ecumenism and indifferentism, to obtain "a Pope according to our needs" (p. 7): Subversion of the Church, in other words, into a man-made Freemasonic Frankenchurch rather than divinely instituted Roman Catholicism. Curiously, the post-Conciliar church, which embraces modernism and ecumenism and indifferentism, welcoming Freemasons to join its ranks as members in good standing, fits the bill.

Pope Leo XIII strongly condemned Freemasonry in his encyclical Humanum Genus (1884), stating Masonry's naturalism and indifferentism are intrinsically anti-Christian. His successor, Pope St.

This small booklet is really well done. It explains so much of what has happened to the Catholic Church over the last forty years. I know the other sources for the Alta Vendita, espeically from publications in France that date back to the 1920s -- 40 years before Vatican II. The Alta Vendita is a true document and because of Vatican II we are living through its fulfillment. Cardinal Suenens himself said "Vatican II is the French Revolution of the Church". God help us.

Alta Vendita is a small booklet printed by TAN books. TAN does not print it anymore and I was told that Alta Vendita is one of the many books/booklets TAN stopped printing once St. Benedict Press took over. Glad that I found one of the last new issues, but did expect somehow a bigger book not just a small booklet for $45.

This booklet examines The Permanent Instruction of the Alta Vendita--the once secret papers of the Masons which outline a plan to subvert the Catholic Church. The author quotes the actual Masonic document, which both Pope Pius IX (1846-1878) and Pope Leo XIII (1878-1903) asked to be published. This document describes the Masons' diabolical strategy to destroy the Church by infecting her leaders with Liberal ideas. In this way, Catholics would be promulgating Masonic ideals under the mantle of seemingly legitimate Catholicism. Describes how far the Masons have succeeded in their plot. Includes an appendix detailing the aims of Freemasonry, as well as the Papal denunciations of that society. It also contains the famous Oath Against Modernism required by Pope St. Pius X of all clergy and an official prayer for the conversion of Freemasons. Gives the reader an awareness of the dangers posed by the Masons and will expose the truth about the secret aims of this powerful secret organization.

It appears as though the entire text of the instructions are abridged. The instructions make up a small part of this small book. Maybe only five pages. The instructions are not different than what is found online. The rest of the book talks about Vatican II and its changes, which isn't bad, but if you are buying this book you are already probably well informed on these changes.

I found this book in a 2nd hand shop the other day and I began reading as it is short. What's funny is that as an evangelical I would hear that the Mason's are using the Roman Catholic Church to corrupt the world. At one point I began to doubt this and all other conspiracy theories (and I still am quite critical of accepting them blindly), but even some hardcore Catholics admit that the Masons have infiltrated, but their spin on it is different. They say it's because the RCC is the one true Church, while the Proddies say it's because it is the Whore of Babylon. Earlier popes recognized and condemned the threat, while later popes embraced. All according to plan apparently.

What's really interesting is that the next pope (after Benedict XVI) is the pope that the Irish St. Malachy said to have prophesied as being the last pope before the end of the world. His name in the prophecy is Petrus Romanus (Roman Peter). The prophecy was found in the 1500's and. Saint Malachy lived in the 1100s if my memory serves me right. The veracity of the prophecies have been hotly debated but even more so now as that time approaches.

Update: That time has come. Pope Francis 1 is that pope. Will he be the last one?
