Anathema sit! Pope St. Pius X on Jorge’s Revolutionary Fiesta

The Synod is anathema

by damselofthefaith

The following is condemnation of the Synod, from various sources speaking of the unchangeableness of the dogmas and doctrines of the Church.   See my “Synod on the Family” category for further posts on the Synod.  To change “pastoral practice” on the reception of the Blessed Sacrament by adulterers is to ultimately change the doctrine, for both are intimately linked. Practice is proof of belief.

“If anyone says that it is possible that at some time, given the advancement of knowledge, a sense may be assigned to the dogmas propounded by the Church which is different from that which the Church has understood and understands: let him be anathema.”   ~First Vatican Council

For the doctrine of the faith which God has revealed is put forward not as some philosophical discovery capable of being perfected by human intelligence, but as a divine deposit committed to the spouse of Christ to be faithfully protected and infallibly promulgated. Hence, too, that meaning of the sacred dogmas is ever to be maintained which has once been declared by Holy Mother Church, and there must never be any abandonment of this sense under the pretext or in the name of a more profound understanding. May understanding, knowledge and wisdom increase as ages and centuries roll along, and greatly and vigorously flourish, in each and all, in the individual and the whole church: but this only in its own proper kind, that is to say, in the same doctrine, the same sense, and the same understanding.”   ~First Vatican Council

“Finally, I declare that I am completely opposed to the error of the modernists who hold that there is nothing divine in sacred tradition; or what is far worse, say that there is, but in a pantheistic sense, with the result that there would remain nothing but this plain simple fact – one to be put on a par with the ordinary facts of history – the fact, namely, that a group of men by their own labor, skill, and talent have continued through subsequent ages a school begun by Christ and his apostles. I firmly hold, then, and shall hold to my dying breath the belief of the Fathers in the charism of truth, which certainly is, was, and always will be in the succession of the episcopacy from the apostles. The purpose of this is, then, not that dogma may be tailored according to what seems better and more suited to the culture of each age; rather, that the absolute and immutable truth preached by the apostles from the beginning may never be believed to be different, may never be understood in any other way.”   ~Pope St. Pius X, Oath Against Modernism

“We knew then that novelties were being introduced in the Catholic Church which are contrary to its teaching and discipline and which lead to the destruction of souls. We cannot allow this in any way.” ~Pope Gregory XVI, “Commissum Divinitus”

“With truly lamentable results, our age, casting aside all restraint in its search for the ultimate causes of things, frequently pursues novelties so ardently that it rejects the legacy of the human race. Thus it falls into very serious errors, which are even more serious when they concern sacred authority, the interpretation of Sacred Scripture and the principal mysteries of Faith… In the name of higher knowledge and historical research (they say), they are looking for that progress of dogmas which is, in reality, nothing but the corruption of dogmas.”   ~Pope St. Pius X, “Lamentabili Sane”

“It is with no less deceit, venerable brothers, that other enemies of divine revelation, with reckless and sacrilegious effrontery, want to import the doctrine of human progress into the Catholic religion. They extol it with the highest praise, as if religion itself were not of God but the work of men, or a philosophical discovery which can be perfected by human means… Our holy religion was not invented by human reason, but was most mercifully revealed by God; therefore, one can quite easily understand that religion itself acquires all its power from the authority of God who made the revelation, and that it can never be arrived at or perfected by human reason. In order not to be deceived and go astray in a matter of such great importance, human reason should indeed carefully investigate the fact of divine revelation. Having done this, one would be definitely convinced that God has spoken and therefore would show Him rational obedience, as the Apostle very wisely teaches. For who can possibly not know that all faith should be given to the words of God and that it is in the fullest agreement with reason itself to accept and strongly support doctrines which it has determined to have been revealed by God, who can neither deceive nor be deceived?” (Pope Pius IX

“What excuse shall he have, what mercy can be hoped for, who corrupts the adorable and ineffable dogmas of our faith?”  ~St. John Chrysostom

“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 the 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.” ~Pope Pius X, Encyclical Letter Pascendi Dominici Gregis, September 8, 1907

  1. From the moment I first discovered Pope St Pius X encyclicals I fell utterly in love with the man. I read The Oath once and knew there and then that the only proper response was to fall on my knees and affirm it privately as a layman. May God Almighty grant me every grace through Our Blessed Lady’s intercession to uphold that oath to my dying moment. St Pius X, pray for us.

    • The question is, why doesn’t the pope pledge the Oath publicly, and why don’t bishops and priests everywhere kneel in reverence as you have? The answer is obvious. They do not want the holy discipline that God granted us through this great pope. They will not bear the yoke of Christ, but prefer false liberty and the praise of men. Any prelate who will not willingly and publicly pledge the Oath is not worthy of his ordination. St. Pius the Great, pray for us!

      • Msgr, Joseph Clifford Fenton, the most eminent American theologian of his day, editor of the American Ecclesiastical Review and whose doctoral thesis was written under the tutelage of the greatest Thomist of the 20th Century, Fr. Reginald Garrigou-LeGrange, OP, served as the peritus to none less than Cd. Ottaviani during both the preparatory sessions and at the schismatic un-council of 1962-65.

        His diaries from that miserable hour in Church history are now online and he suffers no fool lightly.

        As he put it, since St. Pius X we have witnessed more and more tolerant popes who appointed stupider and stupider men as bishops.

        The ENTIRE thesis of the schismatic, at times blasphemous, un-council and the fifty+ years war which has followed is, to the letter, a living example of the mendacity and sheer effrontery of a now-century long succession of unfit modernist egomaniacs and revolutionaries anathematizes by the last great pope in Church history.

        Thankfully, here and there, now and then, a truly Catholic bishop did manage to rule his diocese quite well. And even a tiny, tiny number of them still exist. But I seriously doubt that a one of even these good men is symptom-free of the contagion of conciliarism, ecumania (even the vaunted Bp. Athanasius Schneider has posed with all kinds of “leaders” of false religions) and is not a victim of the sophistry of the “hermeneutic of continuity.”

    • Bergoglio was ordained in 1969, after Paul VI removed the Oath. He’s the first modern pope who didn’t pledge it. Maybe that’s one reason why he feels free to go hog wild.
