Philippine History: First Philippine President was a Mason, but....

Thanks to 100% Katolikong Pinoy for the photo and the write-up.  KUDOS!

That is the late president at left with his wife with an unidentified soldier

According to This masonic website (, Our First President, Emilio Aguinaldo was accepted in the Scotish rite of the Freemasonry. But According to the website of the National Historic Institute ( it is claimed that:

"(Cardinal) Santos played an important role in the spiritual life of Gen. Emilio Aguinaldo, hero of the Philippine Revolution against Spain and the first President of the Philippine Republic. Shortly before Aguinaldo died, the Cardinal often visited him at the Veteran’s Memorial Hospital where the sick general had been confined. Aguinaldo had experienced a spiritual crisis when he was made to promise at the deathbed of his wife, Maria, to go back to the Christian fold. So, before his own death, he made a confession to Cardinal Santos “for the first time in more than half a century.”


Hah!  Take that Masons!  You sworn enemies of the Church!
