Excerpt from The Ecclesiastical Review, Vol. 38: A Monthly Publication for the ClergyMoreover, this utterance of the Pope, which we print in the present issue, not only repeats the main reason for the warnings contained in the previous Encyclical, but also emphasizes the penalties attached to the deliberate ignoring of their manifest signification and commands. These penalties are unquestionably serious for anyone who values communion with the true Church of Christ. To deny, explain away, or misinterpret, either by writing or in open speech, the definitions and prescriptions which the Sovereign Pontiff gives, whether individually as the Supreme Teacher in the Church, or through the accredited organs of doctrinal instruction represented by the different Pontifical Congregations which act as his regular tribunals of decision, is to expose oneself to the censure of excommunication incurred by the very act.Such decisions, bearing the seal of the supreme authority in the Church, admit of no minimizing from anyone who professes to be a member of that Church. Like a disloyal soldier in time of war, or a treasonably disposed citizen who engages as agent in a political intrigue, the Catholic who, by act or word, seeks to frustrate the expressed purpose of his chief, becomes a rebel and separates himself from the Church. And this applies in a special manner to those who, wearing the insignia of office, the uniform of commanders, are pledged as authorized and commissioned captains and instructors to defend their authority and maintain the laws of Christ's commonwealth, under the direction of His highest representative on earth, the Pope.The question has been mooted, in our public press, whether the severe arraignment of "Modernism" which the Pope deemed it necessary to make, applies to the Catholics of the United States; and there have been some pronounced disclaimers.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
