The New Age Of Teilhard

Pope St. Pius X's Encyclical Pascendi Dominici Gregis (September, 1907) presented a systematic exposé of modernism, which he termed the “synthesis of all heresies.” Subsequent to the encyclical the Pope instituted an oath against modernism, required of all clergy prior to ordination, which checked the modernist movement for a time. However, Pope Pius XII found the writings of Fr. Pierre Teilhard De Chardin reflective enough of modernist sentiment to issue his encyclical Humani Generis (Warnings against Attempts to Distort Catholic Truths”, 1950).  So, having written about nemodernist influnce in the Catholic Church, I found Crisis' recent piece of note. For a most illuminating proof of the neomodernist apostasy of Teilhard, see Malachi Martin, The Jesuits and Philip Trower, Turmoil and Truth.
