Jesuit slams anti-Modernist oath and affirmations of orthodoxy |

The first link is the Angel Queen article.  HERE is the original article form America Magazine.

Unfortunately, there is still a lot of Modernism and dissent within the Church.  I notice the author, Father John Coleman, of the America Magazine article, when referring to Saint Pius X, neither refers to him as “Pope” nor as “Saint”.

The author claimed that Pope Benedict XV (the pope after Saint Pius X) opposed the “anti-modernist crusades”.  Those as noted in the comments on by “Tom”, Pope Benedict XV actually did oppose Modernism in his encyclical Ad Beatissimi Apostolorum.  Below is the quote from the encyclical Tom mentioned in the comments (note: translate in my link to the encyclical is slightly different):

And so there came into being the monstrous errors of Modernism, which Our predecessor rightly designated as the gathering together of all the heresies, and which he solemnly condemned. To the fullest extent possible, Venerable Brethren, We here renew that condemnation. And, because this pestiferous contagion has not yet been overcome, but even now creeps in here and there, even though in a hidden manner. We exhort all most diligently against any infection of this evil, to which you might rightly apply the words that Job said on another subject: ‘It is a fire that devoureth even to destruction, and rooteth up all things that spring.’ And We will that Catholic men should turn away in disgust, not only from the errors, but from the very mentality, or, as they call it, the spirit of the Modernists.
