The following Historical Quotes will help you
to better understand the various Historical Facts which follow.

“Truth knows no distinction of persons.  Therefore, he who speaks [verbally; in writing] the Truth is invincible, dispute with whom he may.” (Saint Thomas Aquinas, O.P., [b. 1225 A.D. in Rocca Secca, Naples, Italy - d. Wednesday, March 7, 1274 A.D., in Fossa Nuova, Italy], Doctor of the Church, Commentary on Job, Chapter 13, Lesson 2; emphasis added.)
.
...


“If people are scandalized at the Truth, it is better to allow the birth of scandal, than to abandon the Truth.” (Pope Saint Gregory I, the Great [Friday, September 3, 590 - Monday, March 12, 604], Homily on Ezechiel, 7; cited by Saint Thomas Aquinas, O.P., “Summa Theologica”, Part II-II, Question 43, Article 7.)


 
“Not only does he betray the Truth who transgresses against the Truth by openly speaking falsehood and not the Truth, but he also betrays it who does not openly speak the Truth, which must be openly proclaimed, or does not boldly defend it when it must be boldly defended.”  (Patriarch Saint John Chrysostom [b. Antioch, c. 347 A.D. - d. at Commana in Pontus on Friday, September 14, 407 A.D.], Patriarch of Constantinople [Thursday, February 26, 398 A.D. - Thursday, June 24, 404 A.D.], exiled from his See the 2nd time on Thursday, June 24, 404 A.D., Father and Doctor of the Catholic Church, Cause 11, Question 3, Nolite.)

 
Knowledge
 
It is of the greatest importance that in order to gain assured knowledge of things, to rely on exact acquaintance with facts, rather than on the uncertain testimony of public rumor; and then what we have proved for certain we may proclaim without hesitation. (Saint Bernard of Clairvaux  [b. Castle Fontaines, near Dijon, France in 1090 A.D. - d. at Clairvaux, France on Friday, August 21, 1153 A.D.], Abbot of Clairvaux, Doctor of the Church, Doctor of the Church, Oracle of the 12th Century, Mellifluous [soothing sound] Doctor, Probable Author of the very popular Memorare Prayer; Letters)..




“Truth cannot be Truth's contrary.”  (Saint Thomas Aquinas. O.P., Summa Contra Gentiles, IV,8.)


..

Am I then become your enemy,
because I tell you the Truth?
(Saint Paul the Apostle,
Epistle to the Galatians 4:16.)


 

“If people are scandalized at the Truth,
it is better to allow the birth of scandal,
than to abandon the Truth”.
 
(Pope Saint Gregory I, the Great, [Friday, September 3, 590 - Monday, March 12, 604], Homily on Ezechiel, 7; cited by Saint Thomas Aquinas, O.P., Summa Theologica, Part II-II, Question 43, Article 7.)

Do not heed by whom a thing is said, but rather what is said.

(Saint Thomas Aquinas, O.P., Letter to Brother John)

“Anyone who conceals the Truth, for fear of some authority calls down the wrath of God upon himself, because he fears men more than God...  Both are guilty: he who conceals the Truth and he who speaks falsehood, because the former does not wish to make the Truth known and the latter desires not to refute it.”  (Bishop Saint Augustine, Ad Casulanus, Cause 11, Question 3, Quisquis.)

“Since, therefore, the sanctification of man is in the power of God Who sanctifies, it is not for man to decide what things should be used for his sanctification, but this should be determined by Divine institution.” (Saint Thomas Aquinas, O.P., Summa Theologica, Part III, Question 60, Article 5, Body.)

Concerning the Holy Sacrifice of the Traditional Catholic Mass
..

“Our Lord used Determinate Words in Consecrating the Sacrament of the Eucharist.”  (Saint Thomas Aquinas, O.P., Summa Theologica, Part III, Question 60, Article 7.)

“... those things that are essential to the Sacrament are instituted by Christ Himself, Who is God and man.  And though they are not all handed down by the Scriptures, yet the Church holds them from the intimate Tradition of the Apostles [i.e. Genuine Apostolic Tradition], according to the saying of the Apostle (1 Cor. 11:34):  `The rest I will set in order when I come.’”  (Saint Thomas Aquinas, O.P., Summa Theologica, Part III, Question 64, Article 2, Reply to Objection 1.)

“...if the [Double] Consecration was not performed then [i.e. in the time of the Apostles] by these words, neither would it be now.”  (Saint Thomas Aquinas, O.P., Summa Theologica, Part III, Question 78, Article 1, Reply to Objection 1.)

“...the Proper Form exists only in its Proper Matter....”  (Saint Thomas Aquinas, O.P., Summa Theologica, Part III, Question 75, Article 6.)

“As stated above (A. 6, ad 2), in the Sacraments the words are as the Form and sensible things are as the Matter.  Now in all things composed of Matter and Form, the determining principle is on the part of the Form, which is as it were the end and terminus of the Matter.  Consequently, for the being of a thing the need of a Determinate Form is prior to the need of Determinate Matter; for Determinate Matter is needed that it may be adapted to the Determinate Form.  Since, therefore, in the Sacraments Determinate sensible things are required which are as the Sacramental Natter, much more is there need in them of a Determinate form of Words.”  (Saint Thomas Aquinas, O.P., Summa Theologica, Part III, Question 60, Article 7.)

Historically:  The "Law of Secrecy", a.k.a. the Disciplina Arcani - the "Discipline of the Secret," was an absolute necessity in the early days of the Catholic Church.

This was the primary way in which the Catholic Church defended herself from her enemies.  During the first three Centuries A.D., the Catholic Church and her members, both Clergy and Laity, were frequently persecuted.  Martyrdom was the usual result of such bloody Satanic persecutions.  In this age of bloody persecutions and attacks from a variety of anti-Catholics, it was necessary for the Catholic Church to conceal the Deposit of Faith, especially her Doctrines on the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass - which was divided into two parts - The Mass of the Catechumens (at the conclusion of which the Catechumens were dismissed) and The Mass of the Faithful (who remained for the Canon of the Mass which, of course, contains the Transubstantiation during the Double Consecration).

This fact is attested to by various Church Historians and others and even as late as the 13th Century the Angelic Doctor refers to it:

“The Evangelists did not intend to hand down the Forms of the Sacraments, which in the primitive Church had to be kept concealed, as Dionysius observes at the close of his book on the Ecclesiastical Hierarchy”  (Saint Thomas Aquinas, O.P., Summa Theologica, Part III, Question 78, Article 3, Reply to Objection 9.)
Here it seems that not only does Saint Thomas have in mind the actual FORM of words for each Sacrament, but also “form” in the sense of the entire liturgical “shape” or “form” of each Sacrament; in others words, what was the equivalent in the Primitive Church of the modern Ritual and also the Missal).


Pope Saint Clement I

“These things therefore being manifest to us, and since we look into the depths of the divine knowledge, it behoves us to do all things in [their proper] order, which the Lord has commanded us to perform at stated times. He [Christ] has enjoined Offerings [to be presented to Him] and Service [the Mass] to be performed [Offered to Him], and that not thoughtlessly or irregularly, but at the appointed times and hours....  Where and by whom He [Christ] desires these things to be done, He Himself [Christ] has fixed by His own supreme will, in order that all things being piously done [Mass Offered] according to His good pleasure, may be acceptable unto Him.... For his own peculiar services [of the Episcopacy] are assigned to the High Priest [Bishop], and their own proper place is prescribed to the Priests, and their own special ministrations devolve on the Levites [Deacons]. The Layman is bound by the laws that pertain to Laymen.”  (Pope Saint Clement I, a.k.a. Bishop Clement of Rome [c. 88 A.D. - c. 97 A.D.]. First Epistle to the Corinthians, Chapter 40, Let Us Preserve in the Church the Order Appointed by God.)

Introduction To Dogmatic Documents, Etc.

Some of the following historical data is from various authentic documents such as Dogmatic Doctrinal Councils, various Papal and other Documents.

Also included are various writings of certain credible witnesses, quotes from certain books, and several authentic Prophecies from various Private Revelations, etc.  Most of the following Prophecies have actually been fulfilled in testimony of their authenticity.


Private Revelation

“As regards the guidance of human acts, the prophetic revelation varied not according to the course of time, but according as circumstances required, because as it is written (Proverbs 29:18), ‘When prophecy shall fail, the people shall be scattered abroad.’  Wherefore at all times men were Divinely instructed about what they were to do, according as it was expedient for the Spiritual welfare of the Elect.”  (Saint Thomas Aquinas, O.P., [b. 1225 A.D. in Rocca Secca, Naples, Italy - d. Wednesday, March 7, 1274 A.D. in Fossa Nuova, Italy], Doctor of the Church, Summa Theologica, Part II-II, Question 174, Article 6, Body; emphasis added).

“The prophets who foretold the coming of Christ could not continue further than John, who, with his finger, pointed to Christ actually present. Nevertheless as [Saint] Jerome says on this passage, ‘This does not mean that there were no more Prophets after John. For we read in the Acts of the Apostles that Agabus and the four maidens, Daughters of Philip, prophesied.’ John, too, wrote a prophetic book about the end of the Church; and at all times there have not been lacking persons having the Spirit of Prophecy, not indeed for the declaration of any new Doctrine of Faith, but for the direction of human acts. Thus Augustine says (De Civ. Dei [City of God] v, 26) that ‘the Emperor Theodosius sent to John who dwelt in the Egyptian desert, and whom he knew by his ever-increasing fame to be endowed with the prophetic spirit: and from him he received a message assuring him of victory’.” (Saint Thomas Aquinas, O.P., Summa Theologica, Part II-II, Question 174, Article 6, Reply to Objection 3; emphasis added.)

Therefore, Private Revelations are not to be despised and/or ignored.  Hence, the historical fact that most of the Private Revelations found below have already been fulfilled is a testimony to their original authenticity, while We prayerful await the fulfillment of the other Prophecies found below in those respective Private Revelations.

Pope Eugene IV

Dogmatic Roman Catholic Council of Florence

“39.  However, since no explanation was given in the aforesaid Decree of the Armenians in respect of the Form of Words which the Holy Roman church, relying on the teaching and authority of the Apostles Peter and Paul, has always been wont to use in the Consecration of the Lord’s Body and Blood, We concluded that it should be inserted in this present text.”

“40.  It uses this Form of words in the Consecration of the Lord’s Body:

        ‘For this is My Body’.  (Latin:  Hoc est enim Corpus meum.)”

“41.  And [It uses this Form of words in the Consecration] of His Blood:

‘For this is the Chalice of My Blood, of the New and Everlasting Covenant; the Mystery of Faith, which will be shed for you and for many unto the remission of sins’.
(Latin:  Hic est enim Calix Sanguinis Mei, Novi et AEterni  Testamenti;  Mysterium Fidei, qui pro vobis et pro multis effundetur in remissionem peccatorum.)”  (Pope Eugene IV, Cantate Domino - An Infallible Papal Bulla, at the Dogmatic Roman Catholic Council of Florence
Session 11; emphasis added.  Therefore, those who make any/all changes to this Form are, each and all, .automatically. excommunicated.and the changed Form itself is, completely and totally, rendered.invalid.because the ENTIRE FORM, per se, constitutes the INTEGRITY of the Mystery - Mysterium, of this Sacrament - i.e. this means that the Form is the sine qua non [without which it is not that specific thing] of the Sacrament.  N.B.:  The same is true for each of the Seven Sacraments.)

“Canon xiii. Si quis dixerit, receptos, et approbatos Ecclesiæ catholicæ ritus, in solemni sacramentorum administratione adhiberi consuetos, aut contemni, aut sine peccato a ministris pro libito omitti, aut in novos alios per quemcumque ecclesiarum pastorem mutari posse; anathema sit.” (“Canones et Decreta Sacrosancti Œcumenici Concilii Tridentini Sub Paulo III, Julio III, Et Pio IV, Pontificibus Maximis, Cum Appendice Theologiæ Candidatis Perutili. Editio Novissima, Ad Fidem Optimorum Exemplarium, Castigate Impressa”, Augustæ Taurinorum, Typographia Pontificia et Archiepiscopalis, Eq. Petrus Marietti, 1890, Sub Paulo III, Pont. Max., Sessio Septima, Celebrata Die III, Mensis Martii, MDXLVII, Decretum De Sacramentis, “De Sacramentis in Genere”, page 41.)

English Translation

“Canon XIII. If anyone saith that the received and approved rites of the Catholic Church, wont to be used in the Solemn Administration of the Sacraments, may be contemned, or without sin be omitted at pleasure by the ministers, or be changed by every Pastor of the churches into other new ones; let him be.anathema.” (“Dogmatic Canons and Decrees”, New York the Devin-Adair Company 1912,  Imprimatur  John Cardinal Farley, Archbishop of New York, June 22, 1912, “The Council of Trent”, Session VII, March 3, 1547, Decree on the Sacraments, “On the Sacraments in General”, page 62.)



N.B.:  For any future Pope to try to change any Dogmatic/Doctrinal/Infallible Canon of any of the  previous Dogmatic/Doctrinal/Infallible Councils of the Roman Catholic Church, which said Canon was promulgated by the Pope at that time, (Pope Paul III in the above case) is to de facto (i.e. by the act itself) deny Papal Infallibility, and to automatically incur the censure of.anathema, which means   .automatic. excommunication, which has happened, for example, with the various .anti-Catholic. .Satanic. .Synod. Vatican 2.pseudo-church. fake non-popes, as explained by this graphic:



CORONATION OATH OF THE POPE-ELECT


Coronation of Pope Pius XII with Papal Tiara


The Coronation Oath of the Pope-Elect
Is Required of Every Pope-Elect

Coronation Oath of the Pope-Elect


“I VOW:”

To change nothing of the received Tradition, and nothing thereof, I have found before me guarded by my God pleasing predecessors, to encroach to alter (change), or to permit any innovation therein;”

“To the contrary: with glowing affection as Her truly faithful student and successor, to reverently safeguard the passed on good, with my whole strength and utmost effort;”

“To cleanse all that is in contradiction with canonical order that may surface;”

“To guard the Holy Canons and Decrees of our Popes likewise as Divine Ordinances of Heaven, because I am conscious of Thee, Whose place I take through the Grace of God, Whose Vicarship I possess with Thy support, being subject to severest accounting before Thy Divine Tribunal over all that I confess.”

“If I should undertake to act in anything of contrary sense, or should permit that it will be executed, Thou willst not be merciful to me on the dreadful day of Divine Justice.”

“Accordingly, without exclusion, we subject to severest Excommunication anyone - be it Ourself or be it another - who would dare to undertake anything new in contradiction to this constituted Evangelic Tradition and the purity of the Orthodox Faith and the Christian Religion, or would seek to change anything by his opposing efforts,or would concur with those who undertake such blasphemous venture.”

(Liber Diurnus Romanorum Pontificum, [Jacques Paul Migne (b. Saint-Flour, France on Saturday, October 25, 1800 - d. Paris, France on  Sunday, October 24, 1875), Patrologiæ Latinæ Cursus Completus, published in 221 volumes [1862 - 1864], Volume 105, S. 54; emphasis added.)


Brief Editorial Commentary by Patriarch Jacobus Maria DeJesus, D.D.

This document speaks for itself.

How many real Roman Catholic Popes do you think ended up being self-excommunicated by breaking this Solemn Oath?

We understand that ALL of the.anti-Catholic. Satanic. Synod. Vatican  2. pseudo-church..fake non-popes, never took this Solemn Oath.  Therefore, this means that, automatically, none of them ever became a real Pope of the Roman Catholic Church!

However, IF any of the.anti-Catholic. Satanic. Synod. Vatican  2. pseudo-church..fake non-popes, did take this Solemn Oath, then such fake non-popes  automatically  self-excommunicated themselves, as explained by this Solemn Oath itself because every:.anti-Catholic. Satanic. Synod. Vatican  2. pseudo-church..fake non-pope, DID make various changes, whether to the Mass, the Sacraments, the Faith, etc., etc., in direct violation of the above Oath, including:

“If I should undertake to act in anything of contrary sense, or should permit that it will be executed, Thou willst not be merciful to me on the dreadful day of Divine Justice.”

“Accordingly, without exclusion, we subject to severest Excommunication anyone - be it Ourself or be it another - who would dare to undertake anything new in contradiction to this constituted Evangelic Tradition and the purity of the Orthodox Faith and the Christian Religion, or would seek to change anything by his opposing efforts, or would concur with those who undertake such blasphemous venture.”

Bottom line:  IF a Pope-Elect never took this Oath of Office of the Papacy, then he never was a Pope, just as, for example, IF the President-Elect of the U.S.A. was to never take the Oath of Office of the U.S. President, then that person never was the President of the U.S.A.!

Catholics - Did You Know?

“The Holy Sacrifice of the Mass is the unbloody renewal of the bloody Sacrifice of Christ on the Cross, the Victim is one and the same.”   (Pope Pius IV with Council of Trent, Session 22,  Monday, September 17, 1562, Chapter 2. De Fide - Unchangeable Dogma.)


 


Pope Pius IV

Dogmatic Roman Catholic Council of Trent

Nine very brief chapters on the Doctrine on the Holy Sacrifice of the Traditional Catholic Mass,  issued by the Dogmatic Roman Catholic Council of Trent in Session 22, on Monday, September 17, 1562, along with Pope Pius IV.

They also issued the following nine Infallible Dogmatic Canons and Decrees.

Canons on the Holy Sacrifice of the Traditional Catholic Mass

CANON I.  If any one saith that in the Mass a true and real Sacrifice is not offered to God; or, that to be offered is nothing else but that Christ is given us to eat; let him be.anathema.

CANON II.  If any one saith, that by those words, Do this for the commemoration of me (Luke xxii. 19), Christ did not institute the Apostles Priests; or, did not ordain that they, and other Priests should offer His own Body and Blood; let him be.anathema.

CANON III.  If any one saith, that the Sacrifice of the Mass is only a sacrifice of praise and of thanksgiving; or, that it is a bare commemoration of the Sacrifice consummated on the Cross, but not a propitiatory sacrifice; or, that it profits him only who receives; and that it ought not to be offered for the living and the dead for sins, pains, satisfactions, and other necessities; let him be.anathema.

CANON IV.  If any one saith, that, by the Sacrifice of the Mass, a blasphemy is cast upon the most Holy Sacrifice of Christ consummated on the Cross; or, that it is thereby derogated from; let him be .anathema.

CANON V.   If any one saith, that it is an imposture to celebrate Masses in honour of the saints, and for obtaining their intercession with God, as the Church intends; let him be.anathema.

CANON VI.   If any one saith, that the Canon of the Mass contains errors, and is therefore to be abrogated [abolished]; let him be.anathema.

CANON VII.   If any one saith, that the ceremonies, vestments, and outward signs, which the Catholic Church makes use of in the celebration of Masses, are incentives to impiety, rather than offices of piety; let him be.anathema.

CANON VIII.   If any one saith, that Masses, wherein the Priest alone communicates Sacramentally, are unlawful, and are, therefore, to be abrogated [abolished; let him be.anathema.

CANON IX.   If any one saith, that the Rite of the Roman Church, according to which a part of the Canon and the words of Consecration are pronounced in a low tone, is to be condemned; or, that the Mass ought to be celebrated in the vulgar tongue only; or, that water ought not to be mixed with the wine that is to be offered in the chalice, for that it is contrary to the institution of Christ; let him be .anathema.

THE PROFESSION OF FAITH


Required by the Roman Catholic Council of Trent
Session 25, Wednesday, December 4, 1563
Decree Concerning Reform, Chapter II



Issued by the
Papal Bulla
INJUNCTUM NOBIS
of


Pope Pius IV
Giovanni Angelo De Medici
[Friday, December 25, 1559 - Thursday, December 9, 1565]
Friday, November 13, 1564

PROFESSION OF THE TRIDENTINE FAITH

I, (state your name), believe and vow with a firm faith each and every single article of Faith, which is found in the Collection of the Articles of Faith, which the Holy Catholic Church uses, which are:

I believe in one God, the Father Almighty, the Creator of Heaven and earth, and of all things visible and invisible; and in one Lord Jesus Christ, the only-begotten Son of God, born of the Father before all ages; God from God, light from light, true God from true God; begotten, not made, consubstantial with the Father, through Whom all things were made; Who for the sake of us men and for our salvation descended from Heaven and was made Incarnate by the Holy Ghost of the Virgin Mary, and became Man.

He suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died and was buried.  He rose from the dead the third day according to the Scriptures and ascended into heaven.

He sits at the right hand of the Father.  I do believe, also, that He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead; and of His Kingdom there will be no end.

And I believe in the Holy Ghost, the Lord and Giver of Life, Who proceeds from the Father and the Son; Who equally with the Father and the Son is adored and glorified; Who spoke through the Prophets.

And I believe in the One, Holy Catholic, Apostolic Church.  I confess one Baptism for the remission of sins; and I wait eagerly for the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the world to come.  Amen.

I resolutely accept and firmly embrace the Apostolic and ecclesiastical traditions and the other observances and constitutions of the same Church.

In like manner, I accept Sacred Scripture according to the meaning which has been held by Holy Mother the Church and which she now holds.  It is her privilege and duty to judge the true meaning and interpretation of Sacred Scripture.  And, I will never accept or interpret it [Sacred Scripture] in a manner different from the unanimous consensus [agreement] of the Fathers of the Church.

I also acknowledge that there are truly and properly seven sacraments of the New Testament, instituted by our Lord Jesus Christ, for the salvation of the human race, although it is not necessary for each individual to receive them each and every one.  I acknowledge that the seven Sacraments are:  Baptism, Confirmation, Holy Eucharist, Penance, Extreme Unction, Holy Orders, and Matrimony; and that these confer grace; and that of the seven, Baptism, Confirmation and Holy Orders cannot be given more than once without committing sacrilege.  I also accept and acknowledge the customary and approved rites of the Catholic Church in the solemn administration of the aforesaid Sacraments.

I embrace and accept each and every article defined by the most Holy Roman Catholic Council of Trent in regard to Original Sin and Justification.

I likewise declare publicly that in the Mass is offered to God a true, proper and propitiatory sacrifice, for the living and the dead, and also I do equally profess that in the Sacrament of the Most Holy Eucharist there is really and truly and substantially present the Body and Blood, together with the Soul and Divinity of Our Lord Jesus Christ, and that there is a change of the whole substance of the bread into the Body and of the whole substance of the wine into the Blood of our Lord Jesus Christ and that this change is called Transubstantiation by the Catholic Church.  I also profess that under each separate species, the whole and entire Christ and the true Sacrament is received.

I consistently hold that there is a Purgatory and that the souls detained therein are helped by the prayers of the faithful.  In the same way I firmly hold that the Saints reigning together with Christ are to be venerated and invoked and that they offer prayers to God on our behalf, and that their relics must be venerated.

I firmly assert that images of Christ and the ever Virgin Mother of God, and of the other saints we must have and keep and that they must be duly honored and venerated.

I affirm also that the power of granting indulgences was left with the Church by Christ and that their use is of great benefit to the Christian people.

I acknowledge the Holy, Catholic, Apostolic, Roman Church to be the Mother and Teacher of all the churches.

And, I promise and vow true obedience to the Bishop of Rome, the Vicar of Jesus Christ, the successor of Blessed Peter the Apostle, who is the Chief of the Apostles.

Further, without doubting, I accept and profess all of the Doctrines (especially those concerning the primacy of the Roman Pontiff and his infallible teaching authority) defined, handed down, and promulgated by the Sacred Canons and General Councils, especially by the most Holy Roman Catholic Council of Trent (and by the General Vatican Council).  And, at the same time, I condemn, reject and anathematize everything which is contrary to these propositions and all heresies without exception which have been condemned, rejected and anathematized by the Church.

I, (state your name), by this present’ promise, vow and swear that, with the help of God, I shall most constantly hold and profess this true Catholic Faith, without which no one can be saved and which I now freely profess and truly hold.  With the help of God, I shall profess it whole and inviolate to my dying breath; and, with all the power and ability in me, I will see to it that those under me and any others who come under my care by virtue of my office, to hold, to teach, and to preach all of the above mentioned Truths.  To this end, so help me God and these Holy Gospels of God.

(Pope Pius IV, Giovanni Angelo De Medici [Friday, December 25, 1559 - Thursday, December 9, 1565], Papal Bulla, “Injunctum Nobis”, Official Text of “The Profession of Faith”, Friday, November 13, 1564.  This Solemn Profession of Faith was required by the Roman Catholic Council of Trent, Session 25, Wednesday, December 4, 1563, “Decree Concerning Reform” - Decree on Reformation, Chapter 2, By whom individually the Decrees of the Council are to be solemnly received; and by whom a Profession of Faith is to be made; emphasis added.)

Therefore, We may no longer keep silence, lest We should seem to fail in Our most Sacred Duty which REQUIRES that We publicly speak against these subtle heresies, mindful that:  “Whenever it becomes necessary to expose statements which disguise some suspected error or danger under the veil of ambiguity, one must denounce the perverse meaning under which the error opposed to Catholic Truth is camouflaged.” (Pope Pius VI, Giovanni Angelo Braschi [Wednesday, February 15, 1775 - Thursday, August 29, 1799], using his Infallible Ordinary Magisterium, Promulgated his Encyclical “Auctorem Fidei,” Thursday, August 28, 1794, ¶ 6; emphasis added).


7.  Sunday, May 24, 1829.



“The teachings of perverse doctrines [claim] all things which concern Religion are relegated to the fables of old women and the superstitions of Priests...  Among these Heresies belongs that foul contrivance of the Sophists of this age who do not admit any difference among the different professions of faith and who think that the portal of eternal salvation opens for all from any religion.” (Pope Pius VIII, Encyclical “Traditi Humilitati”.)

13. Now We consider another abundant source of the evils with which the Church is afflicted at present: indifferentism. This perverse opinion is spread on all sides by the fraud of the wicked who claim that it is possible to obtain the eternal salvation of the soul by the profession of any kind of religion, as long as morality is maintained. Surely, in so clear a matter, you will drive this deadly error far from the people committed to your care. With the admonition of the apostle that "there is one God, one faith, one baptism"[16] may those fear who contrive the notion that the safe harbor of salvation is open to persons of any religion whatever. They should consider the testimony of Christ Himself that "those who are not with Christ are against Him,"[17] and that they disperse unhappily who do not gather with Him. Therefore "without a doubt, they will perish forever, unless they hold the Catholic faith whole and inviolate."[18] Let them hear Jerome who, while the Church was torn into three parts by schism, tells us that whenever someone tried to persuade him to join his group he always exclaimed: "He who is for the See of Peter is for me."[19]

A schismatic flatters himself falsely if he asserts that he, too, has been washed in the waters of regeneration. Indeed Augustine would reply to such a man: "The branch has the same form when it has been cut off from the vine; but of what profit for it is the form, if it does not live from the root?"[20]

Brief Excerpt of the Secret of LaSalette given to Frances Melanie Mathieu

“Lucifer, with a very great number of demons will be unchained from Hell. By degrees they shall abolish the [Catholic] Faith, even among persons consecrated to God. They shall blind them in such a manner that, without very special Graces, these persons shall imbibe the spirit of those wicked angels. Many Religious Houses will entirely lose the Faith, and shall be the cause of the loss of many persons. ..And tremble you also who make profession of serving Jesus Christ, but inwardly worship yourselves, because God has delivered you to His enemies, because corruption is in Holy Places.... Rome will lose the Faith and become the seat of anti-christ.”  (Emphasis added.)


On Saturday, September 19, 1846, the Blessed Virgin Mary appeared near LaSalette, France to two children, Peter Maximim Giraud, 11, and to Frances Melanie Mathieu, 14.  Each was given Secret Prophecies which were sent to Pope Pius IX, Giovanni M. Mastai Ferretti [Tuesday, June 16, 1846 - Thursday, February 7, 1878], who, on August 24, 1852, recognized this Apparition and these Secret Prophecies as genuine.  Melanie's entire Secret was published in 1879 with the approval of the Bishop of Lecce in Italy.

The Pope also permitted Bishop de Bruillard to make a like pronouncement.  Bishop de Bruillard obtained the help of his friend Bishop Villecourt of La Rochelle.   In the Diocese of Grenoble it was read to every Congregation at every Mass on Sunday, November 16, 1851.

Monday, September 29, 1879
2nd Liturgical Feast Day of Saint Michael the Archangel

“Saint Michael says that Satan will have possession of everything for some time and that he will reign completely over everything; that all goodness, Faith, Religion will be buried in the tomb...  Satan and his own will triumph with joy, but after this triumph, the Lord will, in His turn, gather His own people and will reign and triumph over evil and will raise up from the tomb the buried Church, the prostrated cross. . .”  (“The Breton Stigmatist”, Saint Michael the Archangel, Monday, September 29, 1879, revealed to Marie-Julie Jahenny;  emphasis added.)



Come, Lord Jesus!
Raise up from the tomb the buried Church, the prostrated cross!

 

It is primarily the Most Holy Sacrifice of the UNCHANGEABLE Traditional Catholic Mass that soothes the irritated anger of the Lord.

“The Lord sees all the evil that wants to triumph, He sees Satan make tents on the land and assembling his friends to complete the final effort to overthrow. Never was a time so terrible, but do not be afraid! I will walk on the line with you. I will walk this line from France to Rome with my flaming sword ... I come to destroy the wicked by the Lord's command. ‘War to Christ and death to the Church!’ That is what they sing, the wicked! They are just prolonging the existence of the afflicted. Without their prayers, the hour of God would not be suspended.  It is the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass that soothes the irritated anger of the Lord.”  (“The Breton Stigmatist”, Saint Michael the Archangel, Monday, September 29, 1879, revealed to Marie-Julie Jahenny;  emphasis added.)

“The Freemasons.... teach the great error of this age- that a regard for religion should be held as an INDIFFERENT matter, and THAT ALL RELIGIONS ARE ALIKE.  This manner of reasoning is calculated to bring about the ruin of all forms of religion, and especially of the Catholic Religion, which, as it is the only one that is True, cannot, without great injustice, be regarded as merely equal to other religions.”  (Pope Leo XIII, Gioacchino Vincenzo Pecci [Wednesday, February 20, 1878 - Monday, July 20, 1903], Encyclical, “Humanum Genus”, On Freemasonry, Sunday, April 20, 1884, ¶ 16; emphasis added.)

But how can hearts be united in perfect Charity where minds do not agree in Faith?”  (Pope Leo XIII, Gioacchino Pecci [Wednesday, February 20, 1878 - Monday, July 20, 1903], Encyclical, Præclara Gratulationis Publicæ, The Reunion of Christendom, Wednesday, June 20, 1894, ¶ 20; emphasis added.)

“In the face of the combined efforts of incredulity and heresy to bring about the ruin of the Catholic Faith, it would be a real crime for the Clergy [Priests and all Prelates of whatever rank of Ecclesiastical Jurisdiction] to remain in a state of hesitancy and inactivity...In such an outpouring of error and conflict of opinion, the Clergy must not be faithless to their mission which is to defend Dogma - when it is assaulted,..Morality - when it is mocked,..and Justice - which is frequently outraged.”

“[To each member of the Clergy, it belongs] to make himself a road block to the attacks of error and the deceits of heresy;..to watch the tactics of the wicked who war against the Faith....;..to unmask the plots and to reveal the ambushes and traps;..they must warn naive people,..strengthen those who are timid, and open the eyes of the blinded.”

Superficial erudition,..or merely common knowledge,..will not suffice for all of this - there is the need for the solid, profound and continuous study [by all the Clergy] of a massive amount of Doctrinal knowledge which must be sufficient to cope with the subtlety and remarkable cunning of our Modern opponents....” (Pope Leo XIII, Gioacchino Vincenzo Pecci [Wednesday, February 20, 1878 - Monday, July 20, 1903], Encyclical “Depuis Le Jour”, On the Education of the Clergy, Friday, September 8, 1899, ¶ 48 “In Doctrina”; emphasis added.)

“I give you a warning. The disciples who are not of My Gospel are now [1902 A.D.] working hard to remake according to their ideas, and under the influence of the enemy of Souls [Satan],  a Mass that contains words which are odious in My Sight. When the fatal hour arrives [Sunday, November 30, 1969 A.D., by the self-admitted Communist Pope Montini - Paul 6, Giovanni Battista Enrico Antonio Maria Montini [b. at Concesio, Italy on Sunday, September 26, 1897; Pope:  Friday, June 21, 1963 - d. at Castel Gandolfo, Italy on Sunday, August 6, 1978] where the Faith of My Priests are put to the test, it will be these texts that will be celebrated, in this second period.”

“The first period is the one of My Priesthood, existing since Me. The second is the one of the persecution, when the enemies of the Faith and of Holy Religion will impose their formulas in the book of the second celebration. Many of My holy Priests will refuse this book, sealed with the words of the abyss [Hell]. Unfortunately, amongst them are those who will accept it.”

(Prophecy by Jesus Christ about the Satanic NEW Mass which was given to the great Catholic Mystic, Marie-Julie Jahenny [b. at Blain, Brittany - West France - on Tuesday, February 12, 1850 - d. at La Fraudais, a short distance Northeast of Blain, Brittany on Tuesday, March 4, 1941] in an apparition on Thursday, November 27, 1902 during which Christ warned of a new liturgy for the Mass which was then currently already being made up “with the words of the abyss [Hell].”. “The Breton Stigmatist”, Prophecy by Jesus Christ, Thursday, November 27, 1902, which was revealed to Marie-Julie Jahenny;  emphasis added.)

 (N.B.: Thursday, November 27, 1902 is the date of the 72nd anniversary of the Miraculous Medal Apparition [Saturday, November 27, 1830].)



“To tell the Truth, it [the NEW mass] is a different liturgy of the Mass. This needs to be said without ambiguity. THE ROMAN RITE, as we knew it, NO LONGER EXISTS.  It HAS BEEN DESTROYED!” (Father Joseph Gelineau S.J. [b. at Champ-sur-Layon, Maine-et-Loire, West-Central France, on Sunday, October 31, 1920 - d. at Sallanches, a commune in the Haute-Savoie  department in the Rhône-Alps, South-Eastern France, on Friday, August 8, 2008].   He was a Synod Vatican 2 “peritus” - expert - who helped to make up the NOR along with other anti-Catholics and the 6 Protestants. He was proud of what he did, and a professional apologist for the NOR.  This quotation is from his book - “Demain La Liturgk”, Paris, 1976, pp. 9-10; emphasis added).

“They will not stop on this hateful and sacrilegious road. They will go further to compromise all at once, and in one blow, the Holy Church, the Clergy, and the Faith of my children.”

Our Blessed Mother announced the “dispersion of the pastors” by the church herself; true Pastors, who will be replaced by others formed by Hell:  “...new preachers of NEW sacraments, NEW temples, NEW baptisms, NEW confraternities.”

Our Blessed Mother appeared to Marie-Julie Jahenny [b. at Blain, Brittany - West France - on Tuesday, February 12, 1850 - d. at La Fraudais, a short distance Northeast of Blain, Brittany on Tuesday, March 4, 1941] on Tuesday, May 10, 1904 and  described the New Clergy and their liturgy.

“1. One of the primary obligations assigned by Christ to the office divinely committed to Us of feeding the Lord's flock is that of guarding with the greatest vigilance the deposit of the faith delivered to the saints, rejecting the profane novelties of words and the gainsaying of knowledge falsely so called. There has never been a time when this watchfulness of the supreme pastor was not necessary to the Catholic body, for owing to the efforts of the enemy of the human race, there have never been lacking "men speaking perverse things," [1] "vain talkers and seducers," [2] "erring and driving into error." [3] It must, however, be confessed that these latter days have witnessed a notable increase in the number of the enemies of the Cross of Christ, who, by arts entirely new and full of deceit, are striving to destroy the vital energy of the Church, and, as far as in them lies, utterly to subvert the very Kingdom of Christ. Wherefore We may no longer keep silence, lest We should seem to fail in Our most sacred duty, and lest the kindness that, in the hope of wiser counsels, We have hitherto shown them, should be set down to lack of diligence in the discharge of Our office.”  (Pope Saint Pius X, Giuseppe Melchiorre Sarto [b. at Riese, Lombardy-Venetia, Austrian Empire on Tuesday, June 2, 1835; Pope: Tuesday, August 4, 1903 - d.  [b. at Riese, Lombardy-Venetia, Austrian Empire on Tuesday, June 2, 1835; Pope: Tuesday, August 4, 1903 - d. at the Apostolic Palace, Rome, Kingdom of Italy, on Thursday, August 20, 1914], Encyclical Pascendi Dominici Gregis, On the Doctrine of the Modernists, Sunday, September 8, 1907; ¶ 1; emphasis added.)

“3. Although they [the Modernist Heretics ]express their astonishment that We should number them amongst the enemies of the Church, no one will be reasonably surprised that We should do so, if, leaving out of account the internal disposition of the Soul, of which God alone is the Judge, he considers their tenets, their manner of speech, and their action. Nor indeed would he be wrong in regarding them as the most pernicious of all the adversaries of the Church. For, as We have said, they put into operation their designs for her undoing, not from without but from within. Hence, the danger is present almost in the very veins and heart of the Church, whose injury is the more certain from the very fact that their knowledge of her is more intimate. Moreover, they lay the ax not to the branches and shoots, but to the very root, that is, to the faith and its deepest fibers. And once having struck at this root of immortality, they proceed to diffuse poison through the whole tree, so that there is no part of Catholic Truth which they leave untouched, none that they do not strive to corrupt. Further, none is more skillful, none more astute than they, in the employment of a thousand noxious devices; for they play the double part of rationalist and Catholic, and this so craftily that they easily lead the unwary into error; and as audacity is their chief characteristic, there is no conclusion of any kind from which they shrink or which they do not thrust forward with pertinacity and assurance To this must be added the fact, which indeed is well calculated to deceive souls, that they lead a life of the greatest activity, of assiduous and ardent application to every branch of learning, and that they possess, as a rule, a reputation for irreproachable morality. Finally, there is the fact which is all hut fatal to the hope of cure that their very doctrines have given such a bent to their minds, that they disdain all authority and brook no restraint; and relying upon a false conscience, they attempt to ascribe to a love of Truth that which is in reality the result of pride and obstinacy.” (Pope Saint Pius X, Giuseppe Melchiorre Sarto [b. at Riese, Lombardy-Venetia, Austrian Empire on Tuesday, June 2, 1835; Pope: Tuesday, August 4, 1903 - Thursday, August 20, 1914], Encyclical Pascendi Dominici Gregis, On the Doctrine of the Modernists, Sunday, September 8, 1907; ¶ 3; emphasis added.)

“12. We have thus reached one of the principal points in the Modernist's system, namely, the origin and the nature of dogma. For they place the origin of dogma in those primitive and simple formulas, which, under a certain aspect, are necessary to faith; for revelation, to be truly such, requires the clear knowledge of God in the consciousness. But dogma itself, they apparently hold, strictly consists in the secondary formulas.”

“To ascertain the nature of dogma, we must first find the relation which exists between the religious formulas and the religious sense. This will be readily perceived by anyone who holds that these formulas have no other purpose than to furnish the believer with a means of giving to himself an account of his faith. These formulas therefore stand midway between the believer and his faith; in their relation to the faith they are the inadequate expression of its object, and are usually called symbols; in their relation to the believer they are mere instruments.”

“Hence it is quite impossible to maintain that they absolutely contain the truth: for, in so far as they are symbols, they are the images of truth, and so must be adapted to the religious sense in its relation to man; and as instruments, they are the vehicles of truth, and must therefore in their turn be adapted to man in his relation to the religious sense. But the object of the religious sense, as something contained in the absolute, possesses an infinite variety of aspects, of which now one, now another, may present itself. In like manner he who believes can avail himself of varying conditions. Consequently, the formulas which we call dogma must be subject to these vicissitudes, and are, therefore, liable to change. Thus the way is open to the intrinsic evolution of dogma. Here we have an immense structure of sophisms which ruin and wreck all religion.

“13. Dogma is not only able, but ought to evolve and to be changed. This is strongly affirmed by the Modernists, and clearly flows from their principles. For among the chief points of their teaching is the following, which they deduce from the principle of vital immanence, namely, that religious formulas if they are to be really religious and not merely intellectual speculations, ought to be living and to live the life of the religious sense. This is not to be understood to mean that these formulas, especially if merely imaginative, were to be invented for the religious sense. Their origin matters nothing, any more than their number or quality. What is necessary is that the religious sense -- with some modification when needful -- should vitally assimilate them. In other words, it is necessary that the primitive formula be accepted and sanctioned by the heart; and similarly the subsequent work from which are brought forth the .secondary formulas must proceed under the guidance of the heart. Hence it comes that these formulas, in order to be living, should be, and should remain, adapted to the faith and to him who believes. Wherefore, if for any reason this adaptation should cease to exist, they lose their first meaning and accordingly need to be changed. In view of the fact that the character and lot of dogmatic formulas are so unstable, it is no wonder that Modernists should regard them so lightly and in such open disrespect, and have no consideration or praise for anything but the religious sense and for the religious life. In this way, with consummate audacity, they criticize the Church, as having strayed from the true path by failing to distinguish between the religious and moral sense of formulas and their surface meaning, and by clinging vainly and tenaciously to meaningless formulas, while religion itself is allowed to go to ruin. ‘Blind - they are, and ‘leaders of the blind’ puffed up with the proud name of science, they have reached that pitch of folly at which they pervert the eternal concept of truth and the true meaning of religion; in introducing a new system in which ‘they are seen to be under the sway of a blind and unchecked passion for novelty, thinking not at all of finding some solid foundation of truth, but despising the holy and apostolic traditions, they embrace other and vain, futile, uncertain doctrines, unapproved by the Church, on which, in the height of their vanity, they think they can base and maintain truth itself.’ [8].”  (Pope Saint Pius X, Giuseppe Melchiorre Sarto [b. at Riese, Lombardy-Venetia, Austrian Empire on Tuesday, June 2, 1835; Pope: Tuesday, August 4, 1903 - d.  [b. at Riese, Lombardy-Venetia, Austrian Empire on Tuesday, June 2, 1835; Pope: Tuesday, August 4, 1903 - d. at the Apostolic Palace, Rome, Kingdom of Italy, on Thursday, August 20, 1914], Encyclical Pascendi Dominici Gregis, On the Doctrine of the Modernists, Sunday, September 8, 1907; ¶ 12 - ¶ 13.)

“Moreover, in order to check the daily increasing audacity of many Modernists who are endeavoring by all kinds of sophistry and devices to detract from the force and efficacy not only of the Decree Lamentabili Sane Exitu (the so-called Syllabus), issued by Our order by the Holy Roman and Universal Inquisition on July 3 of the present year [1907], but also of Our Encyclical letter Pascendi Dominici Gregis given on September 8 of this same year [1907, We do by Our Apostolic Authority repeat and confirm both that Decree of the Supreme Sacred Congregation and those Encyclical Letters of ours [e.g. Pascendi Dominici Gregis], adding the penalty of excommunication against their contradictors, and this We Declare and Decree that should anybody, which may God forbid, be so rash as to defend any one of the propositions, opinions or teachings condemned in these documents he falls, ipso facto, under the censure contained under the chapter Docentes of the Constitution Apostolicae Sedis, which is the first among the Excommunications Latae Sententiae, simply reserved to the Roman Pontiff. This Excommunication is to be understood as salvis poenis, which may be incurred by those who have violated in any way the said documents, as propagators and defenders of heresies, when their propositions, opinions and teachings are heretical, as has happened more than once in the case of the adversaries of both these documents, especially when they advocate the errors of the Modernists that is, the synthesis of all heresies.”

“Wherefore We again and most earnestly exhort the Ordinaries of the dioceses and the heads of Religious Congregations to use the utmost vigilance over teachers, and first of all in the Seminaries; and should they find any of them imbued with the errors of the Modernists and eager for what is new and noxious, or lacking in docility to the prescriptions of the Apostolic See, in whatsoever way published, let them absolutely forbid the teaching office to such; so, too, let them exclude from Sacred Orders

[i.e. exclude from all four Minor Orders; also exclude from all four Major Orders of:  Sub-Deaconate, Deaconate, Priesthood, and the Episcopacy]
those young men who give the very faintest reason for doubt that they favor condemned doctrines and pernicious novelties. We exhort them also to take diligent care to put an end to those books and other writings, now growing exceedingly numerous, which contain opinions or tendencies of the kind condemned in the Encyclical Letters and Decree above mentioned; [e.g. Pascendi Dominici Gregis]; let them see to it that these publications are removed from Catholic publishing houses, and especially from the hands of students and the Clergy. By doing this they will at the same time be promoting real and solid education, which should always be a subject of the greatest solicitude for those who exercise Sacred Authority.”   (Pope Saint Pius X, Giuseppe Sarto [Tuesday, August 4, 1903 - Thursday, August 20, 1914], Motu Proprio, Præstantia Scripturæ Sacræ, Monday, November 18, 1907.  1.  The Condemnation of the Propagation of Rash and Erroneous Views in the Study of the Holy Bible.  2.  The Automatic Excommunication Of Propagators and Defenders of Heresies Including Modernist Heretics [By Whatever Name]; emphasis added.)

The Oath Against Modernism
by

Pope Saint Pius X

Giuseppe Melchiorre Sarto
[b. at Riese, Lombardy-Venetia, Austrian Empire
on Tuesday, June 2, 1835; Pope: Tuesday,
August 4, 1903 - Thursday, August 20, 1914]

I [state your name], firmly accept and embrace each and every doctrine defined by the Church’s unerring teaching authority and all that she has maintained and declared, especially those points of doctrine which are directly opposed to the errors of our time.

And first of all, I profess that God, the beginning and the end of  all things, can be known with certainty by the natural light of reason from the created world (Cf. Romans 1:20), that is, from the visible works of creation, as a cause is known from its effects, and that, therefore, His existence can also be demonstrated.

Secondly, I accept and acknowledge the external proofs of revelation, namely, Divine facts, especially miracles and prophecies, as most certain signs of the Divine origin of the Christian religion and I hold that these same proofs are well suited to the intelligence of every age and of all men, including our own times.

Thirdly, I also firmly believe that the Church, the guardian and teacher of God’s revealed word, was personally, directly and absolutely instituted by Christ Himself, the true Christ of history, when He lived among us; and that the same Church was founded on Peter, the prince of the Apostolic Hierarchy, and on his successors to the end of time.

Fourthly, I sincerely hold that the doctrine of faith was handed down to us from the Apostles through the officially approved Fathers, in exactly the same sense and with always the same meaning.  And, therefore, I completely reject the heretical notion that dogmas evolve and change from one meaning to another different from the one meaning which the Church held from the beginning.  I likewise condemn every erroneous notion according to which, instead of the Divine Deposit of Faith entrusted by Christ to His spouse, the Church, and to be faithfully guarded by Her, one may substitute a philosophical system or a creation of the human mind gradually refined by human effort and capable of continual and indefinite development.

Fifthly, I hold with certainty and sincerely profess that faith is not a blind religious sentiment evolving from the hidden recesses of subliminal consciousness, and morally formed by the influence of heart and the motion of the will, but that it is a real assent of the intellect to objective Truth learned by hearing, an assent wherein we believe to be true whatever has been spoken, testified and revealed by the personal God, our Creator and Lord, on the authority of God, Who is the perfection of Truth.

Furthermore, in all due reverence, I submit to and fully uphold all of the condemnations, declarations and the prescripts contained in the encyclical letter PASCENDI and in the decree LAMENTABILI, especially those concerning what is called the history of dogmas.  I also reject the error of those who say that the faith held by the Church may conflict with history, and that Catholic dogmas, in the sense in which they are now understood, cannot be reconciled with the actual origins of the Christian religion.

I also condemn and reject the opinion of those who say that a  well-educated Christian assumes a dual personality, one as a believer and another as an historian, thus making it permissible for the historian to maintain what his faith as a believer contradicts, or to lay down premises from which there follows the falsity or the uncertainty of dogmas, provided only that these are not directly denied.

I likewise reject that method of determining and interpreting Sacred Scripture which, departing from the tradition of the Church and the analogy of faith and the norms of the Holy See, adopts the principles of the Rationalists, and with equal arbitrariness and rashness regards textual criticism as the sole supreme norm.

Furthermore, I reject the opinion of those who hold that a teacher of the science of historical theology or a writer on the subject must first put aside any preconceived notions about the supernatural origin of Catholic tradition or about the Divine help promised for the continual preservation of each revealed Truth; or that the writings of individual Fathers must be interpreted solely by the data of science without any reference to sacred authority, and with the same liberty of judgment which is common in the investigation of all ordinary historical documents.

Finally, I profess that I am completely opposed to the error of the Modernists who hold that there is nothing inherently Divine in Sacred Tradition; or who-which is far worse-admit it in a pantheistic sense.  For them, there would remain only a bare simple fact, like the ordinary facts of history, to the effect that the system begun by Christ and His Apostles still find men to support it by their energy, skill and ability; therefore, I most firmly retain and will retain to my last breath the Faith of the Fathers of the Church, which has the supernatural guarantee of Truth, and which is, has been, and ever will be residing in the Bishops who are the successors of the Apostles.  And this is not to be understood that we may hold what seems better suited to the culture of a particular age, but rather that we may never believe nor understand anything other than the absolute and unchangeable Truth preached from the beginning by the Apostles.

All this I promise to keep faithfully, entirely and sincerely and to guard them inviolately and never to depart from them in any way in teaching, word or in writing.  Thus I promise, thus I swear, so help me God and His Holy Gospels.

(Pope Saint Pius X, Giuseppe Melchiorre Sarto [b. at Riese, Lombardy-Venetia, Austrian Empire on Tuesday, June 2, 1835; Pope: Tuesday, August 4, 1903 - Thursday, August 20, 1914], Papal Motu Proprio [On His Own Initiative], “Sacrorum Antistitum” - “The Oath Against Modernism”, Thursday, September 1, 1910, AAS - “Acta Apostolica Sedis” - Acts of the Apostolic See, 2-655; “Fontes”, n. 689, Volume III, page 774; emphasis added.)



Brief Editorial Commentary by Patriarch Jacobus Maria DeJesus, D.D.

The Oath Against Modernism is taken immediately after The Profession of Faith by all those mentioned in Canon 1406 who are required to make The Profession of Faith.  Among others, it is to be sworn to by all of the Roman Catholic Clergy, Pastors, Confessors, Preachers, Religious Superiors, and Professors in Roman Catholic Philosophical and Theological Seminaries.

Nihil innovetur nisi quod traditum est.
Let there be no innovation - Nothing but what has been handed down.

“Therefore it is Our will that the law of our forefathers should still be held sacred: ‘Let there be no innovation - nothing but what has been handed down.’ (Pope Saint Stephen I [Friday, May 12, 254 - Sunday, August 2, 257], “Epistle to Africa”, quoted by Father Saint Vincent of Lerins [b. Toul, France, c. 400 A.D. - d. Island of Lerins, c. 450 A.D.], “A Commonitory [an aid to memory] for the Antiquity and Universality of the Catholic Faith Against the Profane Novelties of All Heresies,” Chapter VI, ¶ 16.).”  (Pope Benedict XV, Giacomo Della Chiesa [Thursday, September 3, 1914 - Saturday, January 21, 1922], Encyclical “Ad Beatissimi Apostolorum”, Sunday, November 1, 1914, ¶ 25; emphasis added.)

Magnopere curandum est ut id teneamus quod ubique, quod semper, quod ab omnibus creditum est.  Care must especially be had that that be held, which was believed everywhere, always, and by all.”  (Father Saint Vincent of Lerins [b. Toul, France, c. 400 A.D. - d. Island of Lerins, c. 450 A.D.], A Commonitory [an aid to memory] for the Antiquity and Universality of the Catholic Faith Against the Profane Novelties of All Heresies, Chapter 3; emphasis added.)
“Hence arose the monstrous errors of Modernism, which Our Predecessor [Pope Saint Pius X] rightly declared to be the synthesis of all heresies, and solemnly condemned.  We hereby renew that condemnation in all its fulness, Venerable Brethren, and as the plague is not yet entirely stamped out, but lurks here and there in hidden places, We exhort all to be carefully on their guard against any contagion of the evil, to which we may apply the words Job used in other circumstances: It is a fire that devoureth even to destruction, and rooteth up all things that spring (Job xxxi. 12). Nor do We merely desire that Catholics should shrink from the errors of Modernism, but also from the tendencies or what is called the spirit of Modernism. Those who are infected by its [Modernism's] principles disdainfully spurn antiquity [whatever appears old or ancient], and eagerly pursue the NEW [deceptions; novelties; innovations] in everything: in their manner of speaking of Divine things, in performance of Divine Worship, in Catholic usages, even in private devotions of piety. Therefore it is Our will that the law of our forefathers should still be held Sacred:   “Nihil innovetur nisi quod traditum est.  (“Let nothing NEW be introduced but only what [Tradition] has been handed down.) “[Let there be no innovation, but keep what [Tradition] has been handed down.].”  (Pope Benedict XV, Giacomo Della Chiesa [Thursday, September 3, 1914 - Saturday, January 21, 1922], Encyclical “Ad Beatissimi Apostolorum Principis”, Appealing for Peace, Sunday, November 1, 1914, ¶ 25; emphasis added.  AAS VI [1914], 578.)

CANON 2314

TITLE XI

CRIMES AGAINST FAITH AND UNITY
..





“It is quite natural that a society which claims to be the one Church instituted by Christ, should direct its first penalty against crimes that subvert its very foundation, t e,, divine and Catholic faith. Belief in the divine mission and the dogmas of the Church is attacked and shattered by apostasy, heresy, and schism, to which must be added every suspicion uttered publicly and the denial of propositions which, though not formally dogmas, are closely connected with the deposit of faith. Special danger to the faith arises from the perusal of writings that attack the Church and her teachings.  Finally, the practice of faith is relaxed, and faith itself jeopardized, by too free intercourse with non-Catholics, either in sacred things or socially.”

APOSTASY, HERESY, AND SCHISM

Canon 2314

§ 1.. Omnes a christiana fide apostatae et omnes et singuli haeretici aut schismatici:
(All apostates from the Christian faith and all heretics and schismatics:)

1°.  Incurrunt ipso facto excommunicationem;
(Incur excommunication ipso facto, and)

2°.  Nisi moniti resipuerint, priventur beneficio, dignitate, pensione, officio aliove munere, si quod in Ecclesia habeant, infames declarentur, et clerici, iterata monitione, deponantur;
(Unless they repent, shall be deprived of any benefice, dignity, pension or other charge which they may hold in the Church, and be declared infamous; clerks, after repeated warning, shall be deposed;)

3°.  Si sectae acatholicae nomen dederint vel publice adhaeserint, ipso facto infames sunt et, firmo praescripto Can. 188, n. 4, clerici, monitione incassum praemissa, degradentur....
(If apostates, heretics or schismatics have joined a non-Catholic sect or publicly professed themselves members thereof, they are by this very fact (ipso facto) infamous; clerics, after having been warned without result, must be degraded and their offices thereby become vacant.)

(Rev. P. Charles Augustine Bachofen, O.S.B., D.D., Professor of Canon Law, “A Commentary on the New Code of Canon Law”, Volume VIII, Book V, Penal Code, Canon 2314, pp. 275-276; Imprimatur Sti. Ludovici,  Joannes J. Glennon, Archiepiscopus Sti. Ludovici, B. Herder Book Co.; emphasis added).
 

CANON 2316
..


CANON 2316

“Anyone who spontaneously and with full knowledge helps in any way in the propagation of heresy, or who co-operates in any way with heretics contrary to the provision of Canon # 1258 is suspected of heresy.”  (Codex Iuris Canonici, # 2316.)
 

 

CANON 2322
..

 

CANON 2322

Persons not in sacerdotal Orders, who pretend to say Mass or to hear Sacramental Confession, ipso facto incur the excommunication reserved in a special manner to the Apostolic See.  A layman performing such acts must, besides, be deprived of any pension and offices he may hold in the church, and be punished with other penalties, according to the gravity of the crime:  a cleric is to be deposed.”  (Codex Iuris Canonici, # 2322; emphasis added.)



22.  1948.



“[Satan] will set up a counterchurch which will be the APE of the [Catholic] Church... It will have all the notes and characteristics of the [Catholic] Church, but in reverse and emptied of its Divine content.”   (Archbishop Fulton  J. Sheen. D.D., “Communism and the Conscience of the West”, Bobbs-Merril Company, Indianapolis, 1948.)

The Memorare
 
Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help or sought thy intercession, was left unaided. Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto thee, O Virgin of virgins, my Mother. To thee do I come; before thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate despise not my petitions, but in thy mercy hear and answer me. Amen.
