Kleinknecht's Disappointing Capitulation to the Vatican?
adopted from Monumental Indicator
Apparently there were some issues between Masonry and the Vatican.
A Masonic web site report on a video honoring Kleinknecht, notes that he had personal conferences with high Vatican officials in Rome and in Washington, D.C. about ‘misunderstandings’, though about what, it does not say.
“Similarly, Fred took unprecedented steps to heal misunderstandings between Freemasonry and the Roman Catholic Church. Through personal conferences with high Vatican officials in Rome and in Washington, he set the cornerstone for building cordial relations between the two great institutions."Just look at his expression- he looks disappointed, like something was taken away from him.
There’s no elaboration of what Kleinknecht and the Vatican discussed, nor any explanation for his disappointed look chosen to face his video.
