Thus do they argue, never suspecting that their determination of the primitive germ is an a priori of agnostic and evolutionist philosophy, and that the formula of it has been gratuitously invented for the sake of buttressing their position. And there is another sight that saddens Us too: Second Council of Nicaea — A. There is nothing to prove that the rite of the Sacrament of Confirmation was employed by the Apostles. The primitive form of faith, they tell us, was rudimentary and common to all men alike, for it had its origin in human nature and human life.
I most firmly admit and embrace the apostolic and ecclesiastical traditions and other observances and constitutions of the Church. The critics can ascribe to Christ a knowledge without limits only on a hypothesis which cannot be historically conceived and which is repugnant to the moral sense.
Heterodox exegetes have expressed the true sense of the Scriptures more faithfully than Catholic exegetes.
The organic constitution of the Church is not immutable.
Lamentabili Sane – Papal Encyclicals
The narrations of John are not properly history, lamentagili a mystical contemplation of the Gospel. But as faith has many shoots, and chief among them the Church, dogma, worship, the Books which we call “Sacred,” of these also we must know what is taught by the Modernists. But no new matter is created at the moment of conception.
We, Venerable Brethren, for whom there is but one and only truth, and who hold that the Sacred Books, written under the inspiration of the Holy Ghost, have God for their author Conc.
For the Modernists, to live is a proof of truth, since for them life and truth are one and the same thing. Simon Peter never even suspected that Christ entrusted the primacy in the Church to him. Modern Catholicism can be reconciled with true science only if it is transformed into a non-dogmatic Christianity; that is to say, into a broad and liberal Protestantism id est in protestantismum latum lamwntabili liberalem.
This is the task of the intellect, whose office it is to reflect and to analyse, and by means of which man first transforms into mental pictures the vital phenomena which arise within him, and then expresses them in words.
And first with regard to faith. Modern Catholicism can be reconciled with true science only if it is transformed into a non-dogmatic Christianity; that is to say, into a broad and liberal Protestantism.
An immense collection of sophisms this, that ruins and destroys all religion. The Modernist apologists, then, enter the arena by proclaiming to the rationalists that though they are defending religion, they have no intention of employing the data of the sacred books or the histories in current use in the Church, and composed according to old methods, but real history written on modern principles and according to rigorously modern methods.
It is permissible to grant that the Christ of history is far inferior to the Christ Who is the object of faith.
For on what ground, according to their theories, could falsity be predicated of any religion whatsoever?

Now it is by a species of compromise between the forces of conservation and of progress, that is to say between authority and individual consciences, that changes and advances take place. The State must, therefore, be separated from the Church, and the Catholic from the citizen. Hence it is imperative first szne all to establish what this germ was, and this the Modernist claims to be able to do by the following formula: Ssane the writings and addresses they seem not unfrequently to advocate now one doctrine now another so that one would be disposed to regard them as vague and doubtful.
Hence the triple authority in the Catholic Church, disciplinary, dogmatic, liturgical. When the Christian supper gradually assumed the nature of a liturgical action those who customarily presided over the supper acquired the sacerdotal character. But his conception had now grown obsolete. Let’s look at the pertinent quotes from Lamentabili Sane of Arnold and Losito also give access to the differences among those involved in the If you carefully search for the cause of those errors you will find that it lies in the fact that in these days when the natural sciences absorb so much study, the more severe and lofty studies have been proportionately neglected – some of them have almost passed into oblivion, some of them are pursued in a half-hearted or superficial way, and, sad lamentabipi say, now that they are fallen from their old estate, they have been dis figured by perverse doctrines and monstrous errors loco cit.
But there is a reason for this, and it is to be found in their ideas as to the mutual separation of science and faith. The office divinely committed to Us of feeding the Lord’s flock has especially this duty assigned to it by Christ, namely, to guard with the greatest vigilance the deposit of the faith delivered to the saints, rejecting the profane novelties of words and oppositions of knowledge falsely so called.

The critic takes in hand the documents dealing with the history of faith and distributes them, period by period, so that they correspond exactly with the lists of needs, always guided by the principle that the narration must follow the facts, as the facts follow the needs. With what right can they claim true experiences for Catholics alone?
We therefore, Venerable Brethren, have determined to adopt at once the most efficacious measures in Our power, and We beg and conjure you to see to it that in this most grave matter nobody will ever be able to say that you have been in the slightest degree wanting in vigilance, zeal or firmness. From these sacred chairs they scatter, though not always openly, the seeds of their doctrines; they proclaim their teachings without disguise in congresses; they introduce them and make them the vogue in social institutions.
If man is indeed a composite being with a single substance, then the origin of the body is very much a matter pertaining to faith.
These errors are being daily spread among the faithful. Some among you, inflated like bladders with the spirit of vanity strive by profane novelties to cross the boundaries fixed by the Fathers, twisting the sense of the heavenly pages. Hence that common precept of the Modernist school that the new apologetics must be fed from psychological and historical sources.
Hence anybody who embraces it and employs it, makes profession thereby of the errors contained in it, and places himself in opposition to Catholic faith.
While everyone is concerned about creation’s how, are you preparing for what’s to come. And let it be clearly understood above all things that the scholastic philosophy We prescribe is that which the Angelic Doctor has bequeathed to us, and We, therefore, declare that all the ordinances of Our Predecessor on this subject continue fully in force, and, as far as may be necessary, We do decree anew, and confirm, and ordain that lamentabiil be by all strictly observed.
However, this Agnosticism is only the negative part of the system of the Modernist: It differs from the first in much the same way as the private experience differs from the lamentabipi transmitted by tradition.
