Bishop Gilbert Aubry at Mason meeting

French Bishop attends Masonic meeting

The Island of La Reunion, located east of Madagascar, Africa, in the Indian Ocean, is an overseas French province, whose inhabitants share the same status of any citizen in France. The Island has only one Diocese in its capital, Saint Denis. More than 92% of La Reunion inhabitants (about 800,000) are Catholics.

On April 5, 2011, the Grand Lodge of France organized a conference in the city of Saint Pierre to answer the question: "Laicism, the republic and religion - What Connects Them?" Invited was Bishop Gilbert Aubry, who traveled from Saint Denis to attend the conference. Above right, he is delivering his speech.

Bishop Aubry stated that the union of all creeds and men of good will - Freemasons included among the latter - is absolutely indispensable for the conservation of the planet. Aubry praised the laicism born from the French Revolution and encouraged all religions to promote it. The way to accomplish this goal, he stressed, is for religious leaders to make sure their membres would all be fully integrated into the French Republic supporting its social initiatives.

With such words Bishop Aubry certainly pleased Freemasonry, following in the steps of Benedict XVI and other conciliar Popes (here and here).
