But the lamentabilk of philosophy over history does not end here. Now the doctrine of immanence in the Modernist acceptation holds and professes that every phenomenon of conscience proceeds from man as man.
Some understand it in the sense that God working in man is more intimately present in him than man is in even himself, and this conception, if properly understood, is free from reproach. Then, again, lamentbaili Sacred Books being essentially religious, are consequently necessarily living.
Lamentabili Sane Exitu
Therefore, after a very diligent investigation and consultation with the Reverend Consultors, the Most Eminent and Reverend Lord Cardinals, the General Inquisitors in matters of faith and morals have judged the following propositions to be condemned and proscribed. If this composite being, which is man, has but a single substance, how can we postulate that the different parts of this being could have completely different origins?
In reality, however, he is only a distinguished witness of the Christian life, or of the sanr of Christ in the Church at the close of the first century.
Being in intimate contact with consciences they know better than anybody else, and certainly better than the ecclesiastical authority, what needs exist – nay, they embody them, so to speak, in themselves. The age of gentle private rebukes had come to an end. But let us see how the Modernist conducts his apologetics.
In fact, by this general decree, they are condemned and proscribed. Formerly it was possible to subordinate the temporal to the spiritual and to speak of some questions as mixedallowing to the Church the position of queen and mistress in all such, because the Church was then regarded as having been instituted immediately by God as the author of the supernatural order.
This will be readily perceived by him who realises that these formulas have no other purpose than to furnish the believer with a means of giving an account of his faith to himself. Judge if you can how men with such a system are fitted for practising this kind of criticism. But it was necessary, both in order to refute their customary charge that We do not understand their ideas, and to show that their system does not consist in scattered and unconnected theories but in a perfectly organised body, all the parts of which are solidly joined so that it is not possible to admit one without admitting all.
For though such things come within the category of phenomena, still in as far as they are lived by faith and in the way already described have been by faith transfigured and disfigured, they have been removed from the world of sense and translated to become material for the divine. From the combination and, as it were fusion of these two elements, the common mind which draws up the formula and the authority which imposes it, arises, according to the Modernists, the notion of the ecclesiastical magisterium.
From the discussions in Domenico Palmieri and Pie de Langogne were each charged with drafting a basis for discussion. Not everything Paul narrates concerning the institution of the Eucharist 1 Corinthians The practice of administering Baptism to infants was a disciplinary evolution, which became one of the causes why the Sacrament was divided into two, namely, Baptism and Penance.
From all that has preceded, some idea may be gained of the reforming mania which possesses them: Dogma is not only able, but ought to evolve and to be changed. In presence of this unknowablewhether it is outside man and beyond the visible world of nature, or lies hidden within in the subconsciousness, the need of the divine, according to the principles of Fideismexcites in a soul with a propensity towards religion a certain special sentimentwithout any previous advertence of the mind: But there is a reason for this, and it is to be found in their ideas as to the mutual separation of science and faith.
On this philosophical foundation the theological edifice is to be solidly raised. For as We have said, they put their designs for her ruin into operation not from without but from within; hence, the danger is present almost in the very veins and heart of the Church, whose injury is the more certain, the more intimate is their knowledge of her.
And the results of all this? Individual Experience and Religious Certitude. This is how they advance from one to the szne. The ecclesiastical law which prescribes that books concerning the Divine Scriptures are subject to previous examination does not apply to critical scholars and students of scientific exegesis of the Old and New Testament. Nay, they have done more than this, for, as we have already intimated, their system means the destruction not of the Catholic religion lamsntabili but of all religion.
In the first place, with regard to studies, We will and ordain that scholastic philosophy be made the basis of the sacred sciences.
For it is madness to think that the sentiment of liberty, as it is now spread abroad, can surrender. But the life of Christ is according to faith, and so, too, is the life of Christians. But the object of the religious sentimentsince it embraces that absolutepossesses an infinite variety of aspects of which now one, now another, may present itself.
Certainly more attention must be paid to positive theology than lamenabili the past, but this must be done without detriment to scholastic theology, and those are to be disapproved as of Modernist tendencies who exalt positive theology in such a way as to seem to despise the scholastic. But it is all mere juggling of words.

The dogmas brim over with lamenyabili contradictions, but what matter that since, apart from the fact that vital logic accepts them, they are not repugnant to symbolical truth. There are two ways open to lamentabkli, the objective and the subjective.
And yet, Venerable Brethren, these are not merely the foolish babblings of infidels. Modernists and their admirers should remember the proposition condemned by Pius IX: It may be, Venerable Brethren, that some may think We have dwelt too long on this exposition of the doctrines of the Modernists. Like human society, Christian society is subject to a perpetual evolution.
Then, according to the second canon, the historical Person of Christ was transfigured by faith; therefore everything that raises it above historical conditions must be removed. In them history and science serve only as a species of covering to enable the lamentabilo and moral experiences wrapped up in them to penetrate more readily among the masses.
Hence it is that they make consciousness and revelation synonymous. While He was exercising His ministry, Jesus did not speak with the object of teaching He was the Messias, nor did His miracles tend to prove it. What is to prevent such experiences from being met lamentabuli every religion? But of all the insults they heap on them those of ignorance and obstinacy are the favourites.
The Modernists simply make away with them altogether; they include them in Intellectualismwhich they call a ridiculous and long ago defunct system. The critic, on the data furnished him by the laentabili, makes two parts of all his documents. But his conception had now grown obsolete.
