- Blessed Pius IX (1871): “Believe me, the evil I denounce is more terrible than the Revolution…. that which I fear is Liberal Catholicism, which endeavours to unite two principles as repugnant to each other as fire and water ….”
- St. Pius X (1910): “[W]hat has become of the Catholicism of the Sillon? Alas! this organisation… is now [part] of the great movement of apostasy being organized in every country for the establishment of a One-World Church which shall have neither dogmas, nor hierarchy, neither discipline for the mind, nor curb for the passions, and which, under the pretext of freedom and human dignity, would bring back to the world… the reign of legalized cunning and force, and the oppression of the weak…”
- Yves Marsaudon (1964): “[W]e are unable to ignore the Second Vatican Counciland its consequences… With all our hearts we support the Revolution of John XXIII… This courageous concept of the Freedom of Thought that lies at the core of our Freemasonic lodges, has spread in a truly magnificent manner right under the Dome of St. Peter’s.”
- Cardinal Danneels (2001): “Before Vatican II, in theology, as in other areas, the discipline was fixed. After the council there has been a revolution — a chaotic revolution — with free discussion on everything. There is now no common theology or philosophy as there was before.”
Really long article at the second link. I can’t vouch for it, I’ve had no time to read it, but Papist seems to think it good.
It is quite intriguing to hear Pope St. Pius X, over 100 years ago, speak of a one world religion. The efforts underway to obliterate the Church and Christendom have been with us for a long, long time. For decades they achieved great headway in the world but almost none in the Church herself. Then there was that New Springtime!, and, voila!, freedom of thought was suddenly part and parcel of the Church’s program! There was even a “counter-Syllabus!” Everything was going great!
So long as you don’t mind the tens of millions of lost souls, tens of thousands of departed priests, and 100,000 or more lost religious vocations. Oh, wait………those are features, not bugs!
