the suffered last encyclical of Blessed Pope Paul VI, that never gave the other encyclicals prints over the next nine years of his pontificate.

The New Compass Daily of 2 February brings with comment Renzo Puccetti - "You write prohibited reads lawful: It is the poetry of Nails " [cf. article WHO] ―, some statements of the moralist Maurizio Chiodi on the Pontifical Commission will resume work they consider the encyclical Human life of Blessed Pope Paul VI with a view to its application in the context of contemporary social and ecclesial.

.

As I and the Father Ariel We recently explained, the doctrinal authority of this encyclical must be neither overestimated - as if to make a dogma -, nor underestimated, It considered mutable or, come disse Karl Rahner, even wrong [cf. our previous articles, WHO and WHO]. On the contrary, it is infallible doctrine, that is absolutely true, unchangeable and tamper-proof, although, As he stated by Father Ariel in his recent article, it is not a defined dogma. It is not doctrine defined, yet it is final, to express ourselves with the Apostolic Letter The credit for the defense the Holy Father John Paul II 1998 and quoted in the article of the Father Ariel. Indeed, matter of which is the encyclical of natural ethics, establishing the natural moral law, object of practical reason, law that, applied or put into practice by virtue of prudence, guides action to achieve its natural end last, that is God's greatest man Well.

.

However, as pointed out by the Pope in the same encyclical, the Church has had but from Christ the mandate to reveal to man the way of eternal salvation, so Christian duties are the subject of faith and can be dogmatizzati; but, given that compliance with the supernatural revealed precepts must observe the natural law, the subject of natural reason, The Church also has the right and duty to teach men even the precepts of the natural law, despising them, You can not attain salvation.

.

If the Church wants or so wished, It could elevate even dogmas duties of the natural law, but he does, given that they, by their nature, They are understandable and demonstrable for the simple natural reason. For this reason the Pope justifies the prohibition of contraceptives with rational arguments, acceptable even by unbelievers, provided that reasonable men, Although the Catholic is required to submit to papal prescription with no divine faith, It was defined as a dogma, but with ecclesiastical faith, that befits the doctrine of the Church. However, the refusal of obedience does not constitute veritable heresy, but close to heresy error. He says Paul VI:

.

"No faithful will deny that it is up to the Magisterium of the Church to interpret the natural moral law. It is in fact indisputable, as we have repeatedly stated our Predecessors, that Jesus Christ, communicating to Peter and to the Apostles His divine authority and sending them to teach all nations His commandments, He constituted them as guardians and authentic interpreters of all the moral law, not only that of the evangelical law, but also of the natural, it also expression of the will of God, the faithful fulfillment of which is equally necessary for salvation " [n. 4, see text WHO].

.

Natural law does not permit derogations or exceptions. If there are the conditions of its applicability, not there are cases in which it may be suspended, as it can happen for a custom or a positive standard or conventional, I can admit handouts or suspensions or changes or repeal. If it is inapplicable only because they lack the conditions to be applied, which in certain cases occur.

.

Law enforcement natural resembles the absolute logic subjection of the individual to the species or the particular to the universal. No case can escape or be an exception. It would be absurd to think that there might be a man who is not a rational animal, or it can give the sum of 2+2 that does not face 4. Indeed, the natural law is the law of action of man as such, It equipped with a specific nature, which it is the same in all individuals. If an act of natural law is good, it is always good. If an act is bad compared to the natural law, It is always bad. It can not be that a good act becomes bad or an evil act becomes good. Worshiping God or honor their parents and be honest it is always good. To steal or kill or fornicate is always bad.

.

It must however be noted that moral values They are sorted hierarchically compared to the supreme good or final End, God, and that in the present life, marked by disorder and unrest following on original sin, the affirmation of the superior value often does not take place in harmony with the lower, but at his own expense. We must be ready, as Christ says, with strong language, that must be properly understood, to "hate" him for his soul, to give up an eye or a hand, just to be able to enter the kingdom of heaven. We should fight against the world and win. To save the life, necessary to death. This means, then, that if a value is absolute, no allowances or exceptions, but the fact is that, if this value hinders or impedes an absolutely necessary and vital higher value, it is not to make an exception to the rule, but simply aside to make way for a superior rule.

.

The review of 'Humanae Vitae by the Pontifical Commission [cf. WHO] forms part probably in this order of considerations, but we do not believe to your mind, how does Nails, s'incammini the Church to embrace evolutionary ethic he proposed, which it was already condemned by Pope Pius X in Pascendi Dominici Gregis as completely contrary to reason and faith.

.

Criticism at Nails positions

.

First point. As reported Puccetti, consciousness, according Nails "coincides with the totality of the self (person) - Descartes, the specific self-consciousness - in its value with theoretical and practical ' [cf. WHO].

.

We respond by saying that the consciousness It does not coincide with the totality of the self or the person. Consciousness is reflected act of the intellect, which is the person power. This is spiritual substance, composed of body and soul, whose being exceeds the being of consciousness, that, from what appears from the above, it is only an emanation or act of the person, and therefore part and spiritual manifestation of the person. As for the self, it is the manifestation of the self all'egli, that is the person of whom you speak in declarative sentence, as when, for example, say: Descartes was self-conscious. that see Descartes is the same or better I Descartes as it appeared to Descartes. So the self is not the person, but the appearance of the person intended to herself, in the self-consciousness of the person.

.

But the biggest mistake of Nails, consequence of the previous, It is that he confuses the human with the divine person. In fact not the human person, but God is Self-consciousness subsisting. This is convenient for Nails, because he, to argue that the doctrine of 'Humanae Vitae can change, He would like to substantiate his thesis proposing a concept of person, for which the moral law is not immutably established by a transcendent divine will, to which man must adapt, but it is free expression of the same desire of the human person as self-subsistent, matched to God, and then as a principle of moral law itself, whose content is determined by a transcendent divine will, creative and norm of human nature, but it is the same human subject that determines its nature and, consequently, the law of his act. Instead, the doctrine of natural law contained in Humanae Vitae supposedly the person conceived as the existence of a single human nature, created in God's image, a real substantial entity, whose act, It proposed to the practical reason and implemented by the desire, It is regulated precisely by this practical command of reason, which it is the natural law, known to every man's conscience, and imprinted in human reason from divine Reason.

.

Second point. Puccetti reports that nails writes that "the moral norms are not reducible to rational objectivity, but they ask to be inscribed in the human story, understood as a story of grace and salvation ". Puccetti saying comments that "discreetly poetic Chiodi asserts its subjective view of morality".

.

Big mistake is to Nails, to steal the moral norm to the judgment of reason, to replace the function of reason with the "human story", as if this could be human without the guidance of reason, not realizing that the irrational behavior is not that of man, but the beasts. Vano and senseless, then, in these conditions, keep talking about "thank you" and "salvation", divine gifts, which they are not granted to the beasts, but the animal reasonable.

.

third point. It reports that Puccetti Nails moral norms "guard the good", but states that it is a good "that is given in the experiences of life". False. Moral good, before that in "life experiences", It is offered by God to the practical reason enlightened by faith, starting from sense experience. If then the will puts into practice the good conceived by reason according to the command of virtue, then, but then the subject experiences the good done or loved, accomplished action controlled by the practical reason.

.

Puccetti right in pointing out that so emphasizes Nails, of these experiences, "The subjectivist character, not be pursued as a good in itself, but as well as it is known and esperienziato, everyone does their own experiences " [cf. Pascendi Dominici Gregis, text WHO]. Indeed, the goods held by the natural moral norms is given already by itself and by itself in their intelligibility and universal rationality, abstracting from the experiences of life and above them, which, to be morally good, licit and praiseworthy, They have to compete on those standards, who otherwise would not "standards", ie rules of conduct; must, i.e., be faithful and their practical application in different circumstances and situations of life, after being intellectually conceived and understood in their universality and rationality.

.

In essence, Nails conceives the moral agent which he said is subject to the doctrine of Humanae Vitae as irrational self-consciousness in a "human story, understood as a story of grace and salvation ": a monstrous character, half divine and half animal, as in greek-Roman mythology, except to be subject - do not know how - to a "story or history of grace and salvation", from which it appears that nails do not know or what is the grace, or what is the salvation.

.

Nails seems to be succumbing the moral conception of Humanae Vitae a vision of moral action based on a Cartesian concept of the person as self-consciousness, whose practical dynamism, but, It is not driven, as in Descartes, the rational concept, and then from the universal objective, but from tendenzialità historical and experiential, ie existential and subjective, in the manner of Heidegger, as rightly observes Puccetti. So this is not immutable essence based action, but the self-consciousness to become, Factor in turn becoming and change. What matters is changing and transforming. There is no wonder then nails imagine that the Pope will change the doctrine of Humanae Vitae. But the illusion completely, because the Pope, any Pope, also Bergoglio, referred to as "revolutionary pope", He knows that the natural law is immutable and is not a changeable product of the human will erected to self-consciousness existential. But Nails goes ahead anyway and thus comes to the idea of ​​an ethics without a fixed rule, but radically transforming, existential, experiential and revolutionary, on the type of that of Nietzsche.

.

revolutionary ethic

.

By then understand the root before watching Nails, let's stop on the theme of revolution, Today fashion back even in the teaching of Pope rifermento. The revolution therefore involves the idea of ​​a radical transformation, of a profound change or upheaval. It can be, it is true, subversion, but also renewal. It can lead to destruction, but also conquest. It suggests to violence, but also the regenerative power. However, "Revolution", in the usual sense - face it - especially social, It does not enjoy a good reputation; says more harm than good. He says new, usually, however, that does not involve, as perhaps some people mean, growth, improvement and progress in the true and the good already possessed and stored, which confirms their loyalty, which it is thus in fact strengthened and increased, while leaving the useless old, we free ourselves from evil and breaks with sin and falsehood. But mostly the revolution, in the most radical conception, is the arbitrary claim and nihilistic want to delete or cancel all thought and values, if it were possible, all the previous real already found a stable and grounded, to do it all at will and their will: what Nietzsche called the "transvaluation of all values", effect of the "will to power". The first revolutionary act of man, in this sense, It was the original sin.

.

We see then that the poisonous force and destructive of the revolutionary principle is not at all in action as such insurrectionary, in exceptional cases it is justified even by St. Thomas Aquinas [1] and by Blessed Pope Paul VI [2] and it is not even in a radical renewal or regeneration of thought and life, as in the conversion of great sinners or occurred in the transition from the Old to the New Covenant or will happen in the end times with the Return of Christ: that "recap (apokefalàiosis) of all things ", by Christ, of which St. Paul speaks [cf. If the 1,10]. For this, in the Bible, Tradition, in the Fathers, the Magisterium of the Church the term "revolution" does not exist or has a negative sense of revolt, sedition, riot, subversion. What is perhaps most approaches him in a positive sense is that of Metanoia, ie that healthy change in thought and conduct, in the light of God's Word, which is translated by the term conversion, which creates the son of God and the '' new man ', Risen with Christ.

.

Instead we have to say sorry frankness which unfortunately incoherent speech, opportunistic and flattering Maurizio Chiodi is part of the intellectual and emotional climate, Revolutionary in the negative, increasing collective excitement and false devotion to the Pope, fomented by the left, which in recent years it is rapidly spreading in the Church, since Eugenio Scalfari, famous interview in the beginning of the pontificate, It launched the successful eulogy Pope revolutionary, [cf. video WHO] very unwise title, that the Pope would have to disprove, which unfortunately does not. It so happened that a few days ago, the myth of the revolutionary Pope, It was re-launched in a big way even by Antonio Spadaro it The Catholic Civilization, by presenting the Pope as "the revolutionary who is changing the world by using Marxism ' [cf. WHO], coincidentally on the occasion of the Holy See negotiations with Beijing's Communist government, while tucking S.It is. Mons. Marcelo Sánchez Sorondo, current Chancellor of the Pontifical Academy of Sciences and the Pontifical Academy of Social Sciences, with incredible impudence dared to say that the Chinese regime is "the better implementation of the social doctrine of the Church and the encyclical Praised yes», arousing the serious concerns and protests of many in China and abroad, among which stands for authority and international prestige the wise old Cardinal Joseph Zen, courageous spokesman and defender of the persecuted Catholics in China [cf. WHO].

.

Qualify Pope as a "revolutionary", like a title of respect, it means to lack a sound criterion of judgment, taking a class at least profane, totally unfit to be the praises of a Pope. It is surprising then even more the fact that the Pope will leave quietly qualify in this way, without at least resize this unseemly title, but almost compiacendosene, something that certainly does not bode well for the benefit of his wisdom.

.

This dangerous infatuation with Revolution, ben contrasting al misericordismo pacifism and Jorge Mario Bergoglio, threatens to summon the ghosts of the past: French Revolution, Russian revolution, fascist revolution, Spanish revolution, Maoist revolution, to the countless African and South American revolutions, culminating in that of Fidel Castro or August Pinochet.

.

The mentality sessantottino

.

The Sixty himself was a reckless revolution, who introduced the Church as a dissolving principle modernistic, under false pretenses of progress and implementation of Vatican Council II. The message of the Sixty was founded on a vision of Hegelian-Marxist reality and human action, which gives the primacy to the shifting with respect to the immutable, It enhances the change against the fidelity, progress against conservation. The message was that sixty-eight must "abandon their certainties", everything had to be questioned, the permissive freedom of the "forbidden to forbid", imagination instead of reason by "power to the imagination", the self-production of culture through the teacher's removal, resulting in suppression of the merits buonistica, until reaching the "six political" and to all promoted, open up to the new revolutionary, understood as a break with tradition and rejection of the immutable.

.

Everything changes, and God changes.

.

God is still there, punishments threatening, but it becomes in us and with us. Do not hang on to anything because everything passes. Nothing is stable, but everything becomes. The rule of action is the history and experience, Modernity is assumed and lived, come dice Rahner, "In its totality", without question and without criticism in the light of immutable truth, that does not exist. The Church and the world are identified. All the action is resolved in the political, but at the same time the individual is a law unto himself. The act should not be obedience to an abstract and immutable law, but concrete and historical creating ever new in the evolution of freedom of situations. The obvious consequence of all was the refusal of the Magisterium of the Church with its monotonous and propose repeating the same things, empty schemes, boring and moldy past, to listen to new prophets, which in reality they were nothing more than heretics and charlatans, which, sold as interpreters of the Council, did no more than reproduce under a linguistic coating the heated broth of the old modernism of San Pio X times, He drank eagerly from the Hegelian worshiping crowds of history, but incapable of learning the lessons of history. So it happened that the Sixty introduced in the Church psychosis, if not the obsession of change and "progress", which then, in essence,, separated from respect for tradition on which must be based, and must explain and develop, It is not progress, but selfishness, skepticism, eroticism, relativism, destruction and nihilism.

.

An immense wealth of theological education painstakingly and diligently prepared by fathers in past centuries, always recommended by the Church and by the Second Vatican Council, be preserved and jealously guard and faithfully and to be handed on to future generations, It is so forgotten, dilapidated and remained closed and unused - when it went well - in libraries, Now unless these new barbarians do not want to destroy the libraries and replace them with theology narrative Mickey, Donald Duck, Pulcinella, flying saucers and Santa Claus.

.

The fascinating theological and spiritual alternative, offered by the latest modernism, with his eye on the future of the Church, his sting of renewed Christian life, open to the breath of the Spirit, It is now offering a multiplicity of chances and imputs, of which I can mention only a few examples here, as the new direction of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith not to condemn the heresies, but only the conservatism and stiffness; allow a Lutheran access to pontificate the project of the Italian bishops to observe the rule of silence, in imitation of the Trappists; the idea of ​​the newspaper Future to dedicate a weekly column to the theology of masturbation; The project to replace the Jesuit Gregorian to now Old Course, repetitive, stale, tired, Abstract and passed on the Trinity, a much more current and engaging undergraduate course immigratologia; the decision of the Dominicans to ask the Holy See to appoint Schillbeeckx a Doctor of the Church on the occasion of the forthcoming closure of the convent of San Marco in Florence; permission of the Congregation for Divine Worship the use of bicycles in the church following the example of Archbishop of Palermo and the use of churches for the night gay homeless; replacement, in Mass, to the I believe, incomprehensible assembly of abstract and metaphysical formulas, the much more attractive and meaningful Dolce hear [cf. WHO, WHO]; elevate pedophilia free expression; Radio Maria put under the control of Freemasonry; S.It is the recommendation of the studies. Mons. Angelo Dirt on theological wisdom Marcion [cf. WHO]; listen to the recorder of the Father Christology lessons, Arturo Sosa [cf. WHO], or those on Andrea Grillo ecumenical church [CF. WHO], or those of Cardinal Walter Kasper immutability of dogma and morality, or meditations on the Eucharist mangereccia of Hermes Ronchi [cf. WHO] or erotic Eucharist Timothy Radcliffe [cf. WHO, WHO] or the Eucharist Manuel Belli button, or the series of conferences of S.It is Bishop Nunzio Galantino of "Luther, gift of the Holy Spirit " [cf. WHO] or S.It is. Mons. Vincenzo Paglia on the spirituality of Marco Pannella [cf. WHO], or the lessons of Cardinal Gianfranco Ravasi on Freemasonry [cf. WHO, WHO] or the prophecies of Enzo Bianchi on homosexuality Charisma [cf. WHO, WHO], while our Catholic politicians should make a trip to China to see de visu the best application of the social doctrine of the Church or form an alliance with the Party and Bonino Cirinnà for the family institution reform.

.

What however now urgently needed unpostponable stop is a good time with this one-sided, factious, false, gretta, bolsa and harmful rhetoric of "progress" and decide vigorously to implement a real progress, which - as we remember, for example, the Dominican theologian Servant of God Tomas Tyn - can not but be in harmony with the conservation and recovery of immutable values, stable and perennial, indeed eternal, which are the basis of civilization and Christianity and founded a real progress, that does not make us fall back into barbarism.

.

This is not to return to what has been passed and it is now useless, dead, useless or harmful. It is valid rebuild what has been destroyed, to recover precious values, still useful or more useful, that have been forgotten. With Descartes we are deluded to remake the foundations of thought already thrown the Bible and Aristotle. But this is illusion and folly, because the foundation is not deducted, but dates. On those builds. It is inevitable to use them, even if it means destroying. Wisdom has it that you simply use no doubt. They are modernist and revolutionary who recede and subside, until you return to barbarism, because the new offering is the destruction of the old be preserved. Those who are close to what is genuinely new and advanced, He has no reason to appeal to tradition or immutable, because the genuine and beneficial new is nothing more than confirmation and development of the ancient. It is clear on the other hand you need to know what you can change and what not. You can also admit, being benevolent in the language, a revolutionary innovation; but when it is announced, necessary to ascertain whether it is a genuine novelty or is a hoax, comparing the utterance with knowledge certain and incorruptible that we have already acquired.

.

A novelty that contradicted two thousand years of Christian belief or practice, It is not necessarily heretical or rejected. Necessary to ascertain whether it relates or not to human values ​​or Christians that may mutate or cease. While the natural and divine laws can not change, but only to be better known and applied, positive and canonical laws of the Church can change by order of the Supreme Pontiff, also they were in force for two thousand years. But even then it would be improper to speak of a Pope "revolutionary", but at most innovator or reformer. And if you imagine that a "revolutionary" Pope can change the natural and divine law, such as no longer valid to declare the doctrine of Humanae Vitae, it means that you have lost your mind.

.

Thus, the fact that for two thousand years the Church has not permitted women to distribute Communion or read readings of Mass, He did not prevent the church to give today to the woman this permit, because it is a field - power of the keys ―, in which the Church is free to legislate as it sees fit. It is not the length of time that makes the traditional authorities, but its dogmatic or less merits. The permit a woman to give Communion or to read the Mass Tradition, although only thirty years of life. Instead the view of the mutability of natural law supported by Chiodi is totally unacceptable not because it contradicts to two thousand years of Church teaching, but for the fact that it is philosophically wrong and then next heresy.

.

Unfortunately,, instead, the mentality sessantottino It is seen in the ministry of the present Pope. It then explains how recently he has been able to do a very unwise eulogy of Sixty. And the newspaper Future, tucking, in the number of 14 February, Pag. 21, He has had the unfortunate idea to evoke sympathy for the sixty-eight he had Cardinal Carlo Maria Martini, praising him in these words: "The Archbishop of Milan was not referring to values ​​or principles, but stings in the century flesh " [cf. WHO], without realizing, the unhappy newspaper, of bad adopted metaphor, as, in truth, It is precisely the universal and perennial values ​​and the obvious principles, incontrovertible and immutable, the ones that move the intelligence and the will to truth and goodness, while the stingers are used to move the stubbornness of donkeys. And, If we want, Sixty-eight was actually a "sting in the flesh of the century", but, far from it bountifully, he deceived, mangled and corrupted by the prospect of a fake renewal, that ends in nihilism.

.

It is surprising and painful to see that even today, well after fifty, during which the bitter fruits of this revolution have appeared, There are still those who insist blindly to follow a dead end, rather than correct the course and take the path of true implementation of Council, rightly interpreted by the mortgage and free Modernist, which it is based on false and Hegelian opposition between being and becoming, preservation and progress, time and eternity. The real implementation of the Council involves, instead, the wise conjunction of essence and existence, preservation and progress, firmness and suppleness, abstract and concrete, stability and momentum, renewal and fidelity, metaphysics and history, and moving saldezza, permanence and development, identity and growth.

.

The strength subversive neo-modernist, apparently reliable and innovative, but in fact illusory and destructive, originated - as reflected by the very words of nails - from Cartesian spirit and Lutheran, nell'hegelismo matured and Marxism, and since then he began with steely determination and growing success, not hindered by a dormant episcopate, a climb to the ecclesiastical power, that, began in the workers' and student circles, among theologians and intellectuals and the lower clergy, in recent years he has contaminated the bishops themselves, until you get to Cardinals, the same rooms of the Holy See and pontifical academic institutions, without the Papacy, though supported by most worthy Popes, It managed to stop this rising tide for lack of sufficient cooperation from the episcopate.

.

The task that now has to be for the Church and the Holy Father, It is to maintain and develop both the good fruits of the Council, either to correct his persistent misapprehension and is to recover forgotten values. Forget the revolution. It 'just the "metanoia", conversion and penance, motions of the spirit and life, Sustained by the grace, far more intelligent, radicals and health of the revolution, Because that this is limited, at best and not troublemaker, to operate in this mortal life, while that works with a view of eternal life.

.

Let no man deceive you with enticing topics [With the 2,4]. Your people shall build the ancient ruins, ricostruirai the foundations of past ages [Is 58,12].
