Item description for The Popes Against Modern Errors: 16 Famous Papal Documents by Tan Books & Anonymous...
Overview In answer to the errors of the French Revolution (1789), the Popes for the next 170 years wrote as with one voice to refute them. Here are their most famous documents, many very rare. Great!
Publishers Description In 1789, the French Revolution took place and launched a host of religious, political and social errors which the Popes for over 160 years afterwards wrote and legislated against. Yet most of these errors have spread and today have filtered down to the common man... with the result that most people now take for granted many fundamental assumptions that are positively false But almost from the beginning of these errors, the Popes spoke out as with one voice, inveighing against them. Today, as we see these errors bearing evil fruit, many thoughtful Catholics are returning to those Papal documents which condemned these modern errors, to examine what the Popes have said all along about them. Here, in one handy volume, are the best and most famous of those papal denunciations: On Liberalism (Mirari Vos). Gregory XVI. 1832. On Current Errors (Quanta Cura). Pius IX. 1864. The Syllabus of Errors. Pius IX. 1864. On Government Authority (Diuturnum Illud). Leo XIII. 1881. On Freemasonry and Naturalism (Humanum Genus). Leo XIII. 1884. On the Nature of True Liberty (Libertas Praestantissimum). Leo XIII. 1888. On the Condition of the Working Classes (Rerum Novarum). Leo XIII. 1891. On Christian Democracy (Graves de Communi Re). Leo XIII. 1901. Syllabus Condemning the Errors of the Modernists (Lamentabili Sane). St. Pius X. 1907. On Modernism (Pascendi Dominici Gregis). St. Pius X. 1907. Our Apostolic Mandate (On the "Sillon"). St. Pius X. 1910. The Oath Against Modernism. St. Pius X. 1910. On the Feast of Christ the King (Quas Primas). Pius XI. 1925. On Fostering True Religious Unity (Mortalium Animos). Pius XI. 1928. On Atheistic Communism (Divini Redemptoris). Pius XI. 1937. On Certain False Opinions (Humani Generis). Pius XII. 1950. After this book, the reader will be forced to conclude: "The Popes were right all along " Only by heeding the advice and counsel of these enlightened Roman Pontiffs will the world be able to cast off its yoke of error and enjoy once more the true freedom Our Lord spoke of when He said, "If you continue in my word, you shall be my disciples indeed. And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free." (John 8:31-32).

Reviews - What do customers think about The Popes Against Modern Errors: 16 Famous Papal Documents?
The Apostolic tradition of two millennia opposes 40 years of novelties Sep 22, 2007
The papal encyclicals assembled in "The Popes Against Modern Errors" irrefutably demonstrate the defection of the Novus Ordo. Just as the psedo-antiquarian lie was used to sell Bugnini's de novo Freemasonic fabrication, the Novus Ordo Missae, as a return to First Century liturgy, so too the lie that Vatican II merely refined perennial dogma is used to subvert the Faith. De fide Dogma cannot legitimately be "refined" into its diametric opposite.
Visit your local Novus Ordo "worship center" and notice that the "presider" regales you with every error from Bl. Pius IX's Syllabus of Errors. The compiled papal documents reveal that the Novus Ordo apes the Pharisees in their defection, "...voiding the commandments of God for the traditions of men." - Mark 7:9. These papal documents expose the false teachers of the Novus Ordo for the "dogs returning to their own vomit" [1 Peter 2:1-22] that they are.
A Tremendous Book!! May 15, 2005
Compilations of Papal documents are hard to come by, so on that basis alone this is a valuable and useful book. This particular compilation is an extraordinarily powerful and persuasive defense of orthodox belief against modernism: powerful because of the unrelenting clarity and consistency of thought, and persuasive, among other reasons, because so many of the Popes' direst predictions have sadly come to pass. Although every document herein is worthy of study, these happened to be my favorites:
"For, once ascribe to human reason the only authority to decide what is true and what is good, and the real distinction between good and evil is destroyed..." Pope Leo XIII's encyclical "On the Nature of True Liberty" brilliantly explains and defends the concept of natural law, and how popular notions of liberty and tolerance are perverted when natural law is ignored, and how this perversion gravely harms man and society. Though written in 1888, this document perfectly describes what ails the government-citizen relationship in the USA and exactly how we can fix it.
"It is owing to their pride that they [modernists] seek to be reformers of others while they forget to reform themselves..." Pope St. Pius X's deeply philosophical encyclical "On Modernism" probes the essence of modern thought, revealing all of its hypocrisy, inconsistency, and spiritual dangers.
"The social question will be much nearer a solution when all those concerned, less demanding as regards their respective rights, shall fulfill their duties more exactingly." Although Pope St. Pius X's 1910 encyclical "Our Apostiolic Mandate" directly concerns the Church's proper response to a now obscure French Catholic social movement, it makes important points about how responsibility must accompany liberty--points sorely in need of making in the USA today.
I think Catholics who read these documents will gain a much better understanding of the Faith and valuable insight into the "culture of death" that seeks to destroy it. For non-Catholics, the book could also be most helpful in understanding the role of the Pope in the Church and society--a role that is often misunderstood or viewed in the worst possible light. With Pope John Paul II's passing, we were all reminded of his crucial role in bringing down communism. This kind of historic and positive Papal influence is nothing new: Pope Leo XIII's "On the Condition of the Working Class", a monumental encylical from 1891, was enormously influential in bringing justice to the working classes in the West, and sturdying our defenses against the coming onslaught of communism, a challenge Pope Leo saw a good many years before most did. One can hardly read such documents and not sense the presence of truth, and perhaps the divine.
