Take a close look at this “O-Antiphon” tweet by the USCCB from Wednesday, 18 December. Do you see any symbology which looks a little…well…Masonic?
O Wisdom of our God Most High,
guiding creation with power and love:
come to teach us the path of knowledge! pic.twitter.com/VGfU3QW43W

And, yes, I do know that the eye within the triangle, the “All-Seeing Eye of God” has a Catholic history. You can see it displayed in the artwork of old churches and manuscripts. But for the last several hundred years, it has been co-opted by the Lodge as a distinctly Masonic symbol. As such, it has gained a fair degree of toxicity. It’s no different than the rainbow. What was once thought of as the universal sign of God’s pledge never again to destroy the world with water, it has now become the universal sign of something rather different, hasn’t it? So it is with this symbol.
The question begs itself: was this simply a slip-up by the poor seminarian whose collateral duty it is to pretend he’s tweeting on behalf of all the bishops in the USCCB? Or was the symbology fully understood ahead of time.
Has the USCCB, in fact, gone “full Modernist?”
