Title: Announcement: New Encyclicals
Post by: Shin on June 03, 2012, 04:57:07 AM
Two new encyclicals by Pope Bl. Pius IX have been added to the Saints' Books library.



Nostis et Nobiscum - On the Church in the Pontifical States  (http://www.saintsbooks.net/books/Pope%20Bl.%20Pius%20IX%20-%20Encyclical%20-%20Nostis%20et%20Nobiscum%20-%20On%20the%20Church%20in%20the%20Pontifical%20States%20-%2012-8-1849.html)

'As regards this teaching and these theories, it is now generally known that the special goal of their proponents is to introduce to the people the pernicious fictions of Socialism and Communism by misapplying the terms "liberty" and "equality." The final goal shared by these teachings, whether of Communism or Socialism, even if approached differently, is to excite by continuous disturbances workers and others, especially those of the lower class, whom they have deceived by their lies and deluded by the promise of a happier condition. They are preparing them for plundering, stealing, and usurping first the Church's and then everyone's property. After this they will profane all law, human and divine, to destroy divine worship and to subvert the entire ordering of civil societies. In this critical period for Italy, it is your duty, venerable brothers, to help the faithful realize that if they let themselves be deceived by such perverted doctrines and theories, these theories will cause their temporal and their eternal destruction.'

Etsi Multa - On the Church in Italy, Germany, and Switzerland (http://www.saintsbooks.net/books/Pope%20Bl.%20Pius%20IX%20-%20Encyclical%20-%20Etsi%20Multa%20-%20On%20the%20Church%20in%20Italy,%20Germany,%20and%20Switzerland%20-%2011-21-1873.html)

'Some of you may perchance wonder that the war against the Catholic Church extends so widely. Indeed each of you knows well the nature, zeal, and intention of sects, whether called Masonic or some other name. When he compares them with the nature, purpose, and amplitude of the conflict waged nearly everywhere against the Church, he cannot doubt but that the present calamity must be attributed to their deceits and machinations for the most part. For from these the synagogue of Satan is formed which draws up its forces, advances its standards, and joins battle against the Church of Christ.'
