Church ‘urgently needs’ the teaching of anti-Modernist Pope Pius X: Cardinal Parolin

Posted by Joseph on 27 August, 2014

ROME — The teaching of the pope many consider the 20th century’s greatest defender of Catholic orthodoxy and opponent of materialist secularism is “urgently needed in today’s Church,” the second highest ranking official at the Vatican said last week.

Speaking in the late pope’s birthplace, the north eastern Italian town of Riese, Cardinal Pietro Parolin, the Vatican’s Secretary of State, said the teaching of Pope St. Pius X – with his insistence on the “sanctity of life,” as “an indispensable condition for the credibility of the sacred ministry” – is of “utmost urgency for the Church today.”

During the pontificate of St. Pius X “could be glimpsed the start of the phenomenon of secularization of society, which would have gradually permeated the new century and would have step by step, led to an increasingly marked distance of behavior away from religion, the faith of the Church, and from God himself,” Parolin said.
