RORATE CÆLI: The Pascendi Centennial Year: years of Lamentabili sane exitu
The result of this dismembering of the Sacred Books and this partition of them throughout the centuries is naturally that the Scriptures can no longer be attributed to the authors whose names they bear. Believer, on the contrary, it is an established and certain fact that the divine reality does really exist in itself and quite independently of the person who believes in it.
It may be that they have persuaded themselves that in all this they are really serving God and the Church – in reality they only offend both, less perhaps by their works themselves than by the spirit in which they write and by the encouragement they are giving to the lamentablli of the Modernists.
I find it hard to explain how this is congruent with the perennial Catholic doctrine that man is a composite being, a body and soul united intimately. But how the Modernists make the transition from Agnosticismwhich is a state of pure nescience, to scientific and historic Atheismwhich is a doctrine of positive denial; and consequently, by what legitimate process of reasoning, starting from ignorance as to whether God has in fact intervened in the history of the human race or not, they proceed, in their explanation of this history, to ignore God altogether, as if He really had not intervened, let him answer who can.
When the Christian supper gradually assumed the nature of a liturgical action those who customarily presided over the supper acquired the sacerdotal character. The doctrine of the expiatory death of Christ is Pauline and not evangelical. This progress was of two kinds: Part of a series on. In his Epistle James 5: Reform of philosophy, especially in the seminaries: Thus far, Venerable Brethren, of the Modernist considered as Philosopher.
In an authority so high, admit but one officious lie, and there will not remain a single passage of those apparently difficult to practise or to believe, which on the same most pernicious rule may not be explained as a lie uttered by the author wilfully and to serve a purpose. And while everyone is arguing the possiblities of the past there is one real question that lurks in the darkness.
The clergy are asked to return to their ancient lowliness and poverty, and in their ideas and action to be guided by the principles of Modernism; and there are some who, echoing the teaching of their Protestant masters, would like the suppression of ecclesiastical celibacy. Now the doctrine of immanence in the Modernist acceptation holds and professes that every phenomenon of conscience proceeds from man as man.
Hence that common precept of the Modernist school that the new apologetics must be fed from psychological and historical sources. Vital evolution brought with it progress, not by the accretion of new and purely adventitious forms from without, but by an increasing penetration of the religious sentiment in the conscience.
What is to prevent such experiences from being met within every religion?
These enemies of divine revelation extol human progress to the skies, and with rash and sacrilegious daring would have it introduced into the Catholic religion as if this religion were not the work of God but of man, or some kind of philosophical discovery susceptible of perfection by human efforts. And the evil has gone on increasing from day to day.
Since the deposit of Faith contains only revealed truths, the Church has no right to pass judgment on the assertions of the human sciences. When the Christian supper gradually assumed the nature of a liturgical action those who customarily presided over the supper acquired the sacerdotal character.
To finish with this whole question of faith and its shoots, it remains to be seen, Venerable Brethren, what the Modernists have to say about their development. And first with regard to faith. And there is another sight that saddens Us too: The “Church learning” and the “Church teaching” collaborate in such a way in defining truths that it only remains for the “Church teaching” to sanction the opinions of the “Church learning.
The rules to be applied in this matter are those which have been laid down for science and faith, though in the latter case the question is one of objects while here we have one of ends. The impudence and the domineering of some, and the thoughtlessness and imprudence of others, have combined to generate a pestilence in the air which penetrates everywhere and spreads the contagion. Ecclesiastical government requires to be reformed in all its branches, but especially in its disciplinary and dogmatic parts.
Anyway, it stands to reason that all “humans” or rather “humanoids” before Adam did not fulfill the full check-list of what made our bodies completely human stil evolving today if we go by scienceand thus, no complet human body was before Adam. If this composite being, which is man, has but a single substance, how can we postulate that the different parts of this being could have completely different origins?
While He was exercising His ministry, Jesus did not speak with the object of teaching He was the Messias, nor did His miracles tend to prove it. From beginning to end everything in it is a prioriand a priori in a way that reeks of heresy.
Lamentabili Sane – Papal Encyclicals
Only very slowly did the Church accustom herself to this concept. We speak, of course, of truth in itself – as for that other purely subjective truth, the fruit of sentiment and action, if it serves its purpose for the jugglery of words, it is of no use to the man who wants to know above all things whether outside himself there is a God into whose hands he is one day to fall.
In like manner, he who believes may pass through different phases. Yes, these very Modernists who pose as Doctors of the Church, who puff out their cheeks when they speak of modern philosophy, and show such contempt for scholasticism, have embraced the one with all its false glamour because their ignorance of the other has left them without the means of being able to recognise confusion of thought, and to refute sophistry.

They add also that this is not only excusable but – curiously enough – even right and proper. Vatican I seems to be sayins that all creatures, even in their materiality, were created in their “whole substance” from God immediately. Apply yourselves energetically to the study of natural sciences: But his conception had now grown obsolete. They have no bitterness in their hearts against the authority which uses them roughly, for after all it is only doing its duty as authority.
Errors 64 and Furthermore, how could we hold that it is a matter of faith that man is a composite body-soul being, that the soul was created directly by God, that man as to his “whole substance” was created ex nihilo, but then go ahead and say that the body could have evolved, adding to this that it is not a matter pertaining to faith?
