During that glorious reign of Pope St. Pius X, Jesuit priest George Tyrrell (1861 – 1909) was exposed for being a Modernist theologian and scholar.
St. Pius had disciplined Tyrrell and ultimately saw to it that he be expelled from the Jesuit order in 1906 and denied the sacraments until his death in 1909.
However, he did receive Extreme Unction on his deathbed but denied a Catholic Burial. When his friend Fr. Henri Bremond made a sign of the cross over his grave, he was punished by the Church.
When the greatest popes reign, you find greatness within.
Heresy was not tolerated during the time of Pope St. Pius X calling modernism the “Synthesis of all Heresies.”
The legacy of Pope St. Pius X was his condemnations against Modernism.
Later, Ratzinger, aka Benedict XVI, would call those teachings obsolete in his “Instruction of the Ecclesial Vocation” published in the L”Ossrvatore Romano, June 27, 1990, p. 6.
Not surprising that the 1992 Catechism of the Catholic Church failed to include any of Pope St. Pius X’s teachings against modernism.
How ironic that the greatest pope in 500 years along with his legacy would be excluded from the definitive catechism.
But of course it is not ironic at all. Both, the founder of the the new religion of Rome, Roncalli (John XXIII) and Benedict XVI, were on record for years for suspicion of modernism. Their Vatican 2 religion is the result of their modernist philosophy which makes all those condemnations of Pope St. Pius X to be considered null and void.
After Tyrrell, another Jesuit, Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, picked up where Tyrrell left off.
He was a priest, paleontologist, and geologist.
His works promoted macro evolution while pointing to a cosmic Christ. His writings were condemned and denied any imprimaturs.
Pope Pius XII condemned many of his ideas in the encyclical Humani Generis.
Chardin died in 1955 but his legacy of modernism lives on in the hearts of such men as Benedict XVI who praises him in several works.
When I was still united to Rome, I remember reading Ratzinger’s book, “The Spirit of the Liturgy,” because everybody was talking about how great this book was.
In it, Ratzinger references de Chardin as one theologian with the right ideas.
Even then, I was shocked. I remember throwing away the book immediately for in my mind, de Chardin was satanic.
I didn’t know just how right I was until I read “Hostage to the Devil” by the late Fr. Malachi Martin.
In his book, Fr. Malachi tells 5 true stories of demonic possession in America.
In the second chapter called “Father Bones and Mr. Natch,” Fr. Malachi tells how a Catholic priest becomes possessed by a devil from reading the works of de Chardin. The philosophy of Teilhard de Chardin is so satanic that reading his works can open doors to another dimension. In other words, it is like playing with the Ouija Board.
Yet on July 24, 2009, Benedict XVI, who is the leader of the largest religion in the world, once again praised the vision of de Chardin.
The late Fr. Malachi Martin spoke about two types of demonic possession, partial and perfect. In his book, all 5 of the possessed were partially possessed which allowed them to be exorcised.
However, there is no exorcism for the perfectly possessed.
According to Fr. Malachi, the perfectly possessed have perfectly given their wills over to Satan, and therefore, act like normal people who go to work, play with their kids, and go to mass on Sundays. They include doctors, lawyers, congressman, and even priests. Two perfectly possessed individuals who have never met will instinctively know one another as belonging to Satan.
With all that has been said of the last five claimants to the papacy, it is hard for me not to believe that all of them have been perfectly possessed.
Especially, now, when a man such as Teilhard de Chardin is praised by the latest antipope Benedict XVI.
