There is God in us, and when he stirreth he sets us afire. And since this life produced, in the courses of ages, both the Church and the Sacraments, it is quite right to say that their origin is from Christ and is divine.

Lamentabili Sane Exitu

It becomes necessary, therefore, to eliminate also the accretions which faith has added, to assign them to faith itself and to the history of faith: Thus, he did not create a mouse which then became a giraffe. That these consequences flow from the premises will not seem unnatural to anybody. The errors of the satanic enemies working inside the ecclesiastical structures were doing simply too much harm for the entire edifice of Holy Mother Church and it was time for decisive action against the “reformers”.

And with what right will Modernists deny the truth of an experience affirmed by a follower of Islam? 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 the strictest morality.

The first step in this direction was taken by Protestantism; the second is made by Modernism; the next will plunge headlong into atheism. Hence, Venerable Brethren, it will be your first duty to thwart such proud men, to employ them only in the lowest and obscurest offices; the higher they try to rise, the lower let them be placed, so that their lowly position may deprive them of the power of causing damage.

And there is another sight that saddens Us too: Now if we proceed to consider him as Believer, seeking to know how the Believer, according to Modernism, is differentiated from the Philosopher, it must be observed that although the Philosopher recognises as the object of faith the divine realitystill this reality is not to be found but in the heart of the Believer, as being an object of sentiment and affirmation; and therefore confined within the sphere of phenomena; but as to whether it exists outside that sentiment and affirmation is a matter which in no way concerns this Philosopher.


For in the vast and varied abundance of studies opening before the mind desirous of truth, everybody knows how the old maxim describes theology as so far in front of all others that every science and art should serve it and be to it as handmaidens Leo XIII. If anyone say that these sacraments are instituted solely to foster the faith, let him be anathema. But while they endeavour by this line of reasoning to secure access for the Catholic religion into souls, these new apologists are quite ready to admit that there are many distasteful things in it.

The young, excited and confused by all this glamour of praise and abuse, some of them afraid of being branded as ignorant, others ambitious to be considered learned, and both classes goaded internally by curiosity and pride, often surrender and give themselves up to Modernism.

Lamentabili Sane – Papal Encyclicals

Hence again it is given to us to infer that all existing religions are equally true, for otherwise they would not live. For we are living lamentablii an age when the sense of liberty has reached its fullest development, and when the public conscience has in the civil order introduced popular government.

In MagnaDec. It tends to show that religion, and especially the Catholic religion, is endowed with such vitality as to compel every psychologist and historian of good faith to recognise that its history hides some unknown element.

Now the religious sentiment, although it may be more perfect or less perfect, is always one and the same; and the intellectual formula, in order to be true, has but to respond to the religious sentiment and to the Believer, whatever be the intellectual capacity of the latter. Still it is to be held that both Church and Sacraments have been laemntabili mediately by Christ. The first document in the [End Page ] series reflects Palmieri’s efforts to broadly connect Lmaentabili with Kant’s errors and exhibit the dangers of the exegete’s theological “evolutionism,” followed by ninety-three propositions in Latin with a theological qualification attached lamentabiili each.

By your love for Mary, mother and queen of all, inflame my heart with tender devotion to her. I most firmly admit and embrace the apostolic and ecclesiastical traditions and other observances and constitutions of the Lanentabili.


The process is an extremely simple one. It is next for the historian to scrutinise his documents once more, to examine carefully the circumstances and conditions affecting the Church during the different periods, the conserving force she has put forth, the needs both internal and external that have stimulated her to progress, the obstacles she has had to encounter, in a word everything that helps to determine the manner in which the laws of evolution have been fulfilled in her.

I ; and also: That the proximate and immediate cause consists in a perversion of the mind cannot be open to doubt. It is a dogma which the Christian conscience has derived from the notion of the Messias.

Project MUSE Mission Project MUSE promotes the creation and dissemination of lamebtabili humanities and social science resources through collaboration with libraries, publishers, and scholars worldwide.

In this way is religious experience propagated among the peoples; and not merely among contemporaries by preaching, but among future generations both by books and by oral transmission from one to another.

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.

As for the others, who might be called intergralists lamentabi,i, they would show to the non-believer, hidden away in the very depths of his being, the very germ which Christ Himself bore in His conscience, and which He bequeathed to the world.
