The Popes Against Modern Errors:
The Encyclical Mirari Vos of Pope Gregory XVI (1832)
Last year, our friends over at Restoration Radio launched an exciting new series on the errors of modernity: In The Popes Against Modern Errors, sedevacantist Bishop Donald Sanborn analyzes and comments on the great anti-modern encyclical letters of the Popes from Gregory XVI through Pius XII (1831-1958).
The first episode is dedicated to Pope Gregory XVI’s 1832 landmark encyclical against liberalism, Mirari Vos. This magisterial document condemns and refutes errors such as indifferentism, freedom of speech, religious liberty, and separation of church and state. Calls for an end to mandatory clerical celibacy are also proscribed.
Although this radio show is generally accessible only to members who have a subscription to True Restoration, nevertheless we have decided to sponsor this first episode on Mirari Vos, making it free to the general public. We trust you will find this program most informative and educational. Click below to listen:
You can also listen to the free introductory episode to the Popes Against Modern Errors series, which is available here:
A number of years ago, TAN Books published a collection of the 16 most important papal encyclicals against the errors of modernity from Gregory XVI through Pius XII, entitled The Popes Against Modern Errors. It makes a great companion piece to the radio program and is essential reading for all who want to see how different the Catholic Church of the ages is, compared to the modern-day Vatican II Sect, which has swallowed most modern errors hook, like, and sinker. The book is still in print and can be obtained as a paperback or in electronic format here.
Interesting tidbit: When Cardinal Bartolomeo Cappellari was elected Pope and took the name of Gregory XVI on February 2, 1831, he was not yet a bishop but only a priest. His episcopal consecration took place four days later and was conferred by Cardinal Bartolomeo Pacca (source).
