Modernism XI


We continue with the series from Vatican II Exposed as Counterfeit Catholicism
by Frs. Francisco and Dominic Radecki, CMRI.


Catholic clergy are ordained to teach and guide souls. They have a serious obligation to lead their flock to Heaven. Sadly, clergy infected with Modernism led astray those under their care. This role reversal is typified by Communist leaders who often appoint an atheist to be the Minister of Religion and a criminal as Chief of Police. Pope Pius XII and the Roman Curia strenuously opposed the New Theology that was subtly undermining the faith. Modernist theologians were seen as saboteurs and spiritual assassins. In 1933, Cardinal Pacelli called the Nazis, “false prophets with the pride of Lucifer,” and “bearers of a new faith and a new gospel.” Modernists also fit that description perfectly.

Modernists were not simply progressive thinkers who wanted to help, but cruel wolves who sought to destroy. Once the barriers were removed following the death of Pope Pius XII and the neutralization of the Roman Curia by John XXIII and Paul VI, Modernism reigned supreme. A relatively small number of Modernists had a tremendous scope of influence. Those in power chose like-minded auxiliary bishops and zealous theologians (fellow heretics) to assist them in the sinister task of constructing a Counterfeit Church. This nucleus of Modernists was extremely well organized in all fronts and influenced bishops from all over the world..


There were two types of Modernists: wolves that rarely used a disguise and wolves that donned sheep’s clothing. Both deceived the masses and were compensated in different ways.

Radical Priests Edward Schillebeeckx, Karl Rahner, Hans Kung, John Courtney Murray, Bernhard Haring, and Marie- Dominique Chenu led many astray by their writings.They rarely concealed their heretical beliefs and true motives. Their work was indispensable and their reward was world-wide fame. By writing, teaching, giving lectures, and using the mass media, they were at the forefront of change.

Bishops Annibale Bugnini, Karel Calewart, Dom Helder Camara, Emile De Smedt, Augustin Bea, Manuel Larrain, Stephen Leven, and Paul Hallinan used their office to promote Modernist heresies.
