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 those young men who give the very faintest reason for doubt that they favor condemned doctrines and pernicious novelties. (Pope St. Pius X PRAESTANTIA SCRIPTURAE)
Giuseppe Sarto (Pius X) was a man of a simple background who did not let the “sophisticated” men of his day muddle the Church’s teaching by fancy verbiage. He eminated the natural “Sensus Catholicus” of the common man, akin to the reaction of organism when a disease is introduced. This “Catholic Sense” is a virtue we should all cultivate at this time when the wolves are prowling. It took almost 40 years before he was canonized by Pius XII…ahem..ahem….to the JPII “The Superest Pope Ever, he should have been Canonized by now” crowd out there. A complete lack of historical context. There are Martyrs that have yet to be Canonized, do you not see anything wrong with this picture? I am in no way saying JPII should/should not be, just let the process take it’s natural course, and stop yammering about, it’s obnoxious.
