What is moderate Modernism?
Pascendi Dominici Gregis says, “And here We cannot but deplore once more, and grievously, that there are Catholics who, while rejecting immanence as a doctrine, employ it as a method of apologetics, and who do this so imprudently that they seem to admit that there is in human nature a true and rigorous necessity with regard to the supernatural order - and not merely a capacity and a suitability for the supernatural, order - and not merely a capacity and a suitability for the supernatural, such as has at all times been emphasized by Catholic apologists. Truth to tell it is only the moderate Modernists who make this appeal to an exigency for the Catholic religion.”
I’ve read that it might be an attack on Blondel, but Pope John Paul II approved his work. Pius X is saying what moderate Modernists do is imprudent, but is “moderate modernism” in itself (whatever it is) incompatible with Catholicism?
And please, let’s not turn this thread into a pre/post Vatican II thread. :tsktsk:
