In the 1917 Canon Law, it explicitly says:
Therefore the Church’s negative judgment in regard to Masonic association remains unchanged since their principles have always been considered irreconcilable with the doctrine of the Church and therefore membership in them remains forbidden. The faithful who enrol in Masonic associations are in a state of grave sin and may not receive Holy Communion. (Vatican.va)
Canon 2335 reads as follows:
Persons joining associations of the Masonic sect or any others of the same kind which plot against the Church and legitimate civil authorities contract ipso facto excommunication simply reserved to the Apostolic See. (Source)

I had asked if they had been disbanded .Have you any knowledge of this?
What is to say that maybe they pay a indulgence fee ? The RC do allow for indulgences don't they ?
it's safe to say it wasn't to protect the popes image but to destroy the truth the Protestant reformation had brought to light
The Jesuits were created to attack and destroy the Protestant reformation and they couldn't so they went fifth coloum and work at doing so from the inside

This is a really interesting post, and it's a complicated area that I don't know much about. What do you think their (Old Believers) agenda is, and what would be the outcome of their gaining increased control in Russia?
