"Finally, we come to the third stage in the work of Masonry, that of its direct intervention in politics. This is how Leo XIII described it in his Encyclical of 19th March, 1902:
"Freemasonry is the permanent personification of the Revolution; it constitutes a sort of society in reverse whose aim is to exercise an occult overlordship upon society as we know it, and whose sole raison d'étre consists in waging war against God and His Church." (Encyclical: On the 25th Year of Our Pontificate)"
