Studiorum ducem "On St. Thomas Aquinas" Thomas Aquinas: 29 June 1923 4. When it is necessary to enter into controversy, they should be prepared to refute error and to overcome the wiles of the wicked, but always in a way that will demonstrate clearly that they are animated by the highest principles and moved only by Christian charity. Potissimum autem fidelium imitationi Francisci mansuetudinem proponite ; haec enim virtus, quae tam pulcre reddit atque exprimit Iesu Christi benignitatem ac tantum potest ad alliciendos homines, si semel animos vulgo pervaserit, nonne publicae privataeque rationes facile componantur? 1. Haec sane praecipua Salesii virtus, ex intimo pectore tamquam dulcissimus fructus caritatis erumpens, cum scilicet miserationis atque indulgentiae spiritu maxime contineretur, ea suavitate et oris gravitatem temperabat et corporis gestum et vocem aspergebat, ut studiosam omnium reverentiam ipsi conciliaret. First of all, you should make known and even explain with all diligence this encyclical both to your clergy and to the people committed to your care. Deinde, hoc polito, peculiarem aliquam deligendam nobis esse virtutem, ad quam sine intermissione contendamus donec eius compotes simus, tum de singulis virtutibus agit, de decentia, de honestis probrosisque colloquiis, de licitis periculosisque oblectamentis, de fidelitate erga Deum retinenda, deque coniugum, viduarum virginumque officiis. If every individual would resolve faithfully to live up to his obligations, a great social improvement would be realized almost immediately. This work of spreading about leaflets, however, gradually decreased and ceased altogether when the people of these parts in large numbers began to attend his sermons. His meekness, however, differed altogether from that artificial gentility which consists in the mere possession of polished manners and in the display of a purely conventional affability. 35. They … Plurima quidem sunt quae hoc ipso consilio edidit eaque nobilissima scripta; in iis vero duo illi eminent vulgatissimi libri, quorum alter Philothea, alter Tractatus de amore Dei inscribitur. The bishops of Rome are the successors of St. Peter. On the Greek-Ruthenian Rite. Iamvero in hisce Controversiis sanctus Doctor, quamquam concertatoriam quasi supellectilem superiorum aetatum commodissime adhibet, est tamen semper in disputando suus; ac, primum omnium, illud confirmat, auctoritatem in Ecclesia Christi ne cogitari quidem posse nisi legitimo mandato tributam, quo haeretici sacrorum administri prorsus careant; tum convictis eorum de Ecclesia natura erroribus, proprias verae Ecclesiae notas definit, easque demonstrat in catholica quidem Ecclesia reperiri, contra in reformata desiderari. Later, they were found and collected in a volume and presented to Our Predecessor, Alexander VII, who had the happiness, after the customary process of canonization, of ascribing St. Francis first among the blessed, and later among the saints. Datum Romae apud Sanctum Petrum die XXVI mensis Ianuarii, anno MDCCCCXXIII, Pontificatus Nostri primo. Nimirum ex animi fortitudine, quam quidem perpetuo fidei vigor atque ignis divinae caritatis alebat, omnis illa exstitit Salesii lenitas, ut aptissime in eum quadret quod est in sacris Litteris: De forti egressa est, dulcedo (6). He, by his example, teaches them in no uncertain manner precisely how they should write. ; with John Bergsma; Saint Gregory of Nyssa; Ushering in the New Year of Faith! Ipso interea magistro discimus id quidem facere — culpa nimirum excepta — quod omnes solent, at simul, quod plerique non solent, id ipsum sancte facere et ea quidem mente ut Deo placeamus: praeterea docemur decorum servare, quod ipse venustum virtutum ornatum appellat; naturam non abolere, sed vincere, et paullatim parvoque nisu in caelum evolare, columbarum more, si aquilarum non licet, id est vitae sanctimoniam communi assequi via quando ad singularem perfectionem non destinamur. Ecclesia vero huiusmodi sanctificationis opus apud universos omnes felicissime persequitur, quoties, Dei beneficio ac munere, ei contingit alios ex aliis egregios filios ad imitandum vulgo proponere, qui in omnium exercitatione virtutum admirabiles exstiterunt. His imperturbable kindness stood him in better stead in effecting the conversion of so many thousands of people than even the broad learning and wonderful eloquence which characterized his performance of the many duties of the sacred ministry. 26. 9. Let us now see, Venerable Brothers, how St. Francis, who was himself such a loving model of holiness, showed to others by his writings the sure and easy path to Christian perfection, in this also imitating Christ, Who "began to do and to teach." (Prov. . -This glossary of terms and principles will hopefully provide a quick aid to those unfamiliar with some of the phrases, topics or principles that are frequently discussed in this book. It was by such means as these that he finally overcame the resistance of his most formidable adversaries. He wrote at all times in a dignified but facile style, varied now and then by a marvelous acuteness in thought and grace of expression, and by reason of these qualities his writings have proven themselves quite agreeable reading. Quod quidem admodum ea facit suae ipsius naturae congruenter, cum a Christo auctore suo sancta constituta sit et sanctitatis effectrix, cumque omnes, qui ea duce magistraque utuntur, ex Dei voluntate ad vitae sanctimoniam niti debeant. Some are so immersed in business that they think of nothing but accumulating riches and, by consequences, the spiritual life ceases to exist for them. 29. 31. He not only replied to the envoy sent him in a manner befitting his own high rank, but did not cease demanding reparation for the injury done until after he had received full satisfaction from the Senate. Nonne hac cum virtute, quam recte dixeris exteriorem divinae caritatis ornatura, in domestico convictu atque etiam in civitate summa tranquillitas et concordia consistat? This fact is proven amply by the testimony of the physicians who prepared his body for burial for when, as we read, they embalmed the body, they found his bile turned into stone which had been broken up into the smallest imaginable particles. On the other hand, the great strength of will of this model of meekness manifested itself whenever he was compelled to stand in opposition to the powerful in order to protect the interests of God, the dignity of the Church, or the salvation of souls. Cum, uti rerum gestarum scriptores enarrant, a Sabaudiae Duce cum Bernensibus et Genevensibus exeunte anno MDLXXXXIII induciae essent initae, tum maxime visum est, ad Chaballicenses Ecclesiae reconciliandos nihil magis profuturum, quam si, missis illuc studiosis doctisque divini verbi praeconibus, persuasione adhibita, sensim ad fidem allicerentur. They cannot but inspire in the souls of the faithful a love of true and solid piety, a love which the clergy can develop with most happy results if they but learn to assimilate thoroughly the teachings of St. Francis and to imitate the kindly qualities which characterized his preaching.

Oblata vero opportunitate, difficillimas quaestiones dilucide explanat, ut de gratia efficaci, de praedestinatione, de vocatione ad fidem; et, ne ieiuna currat oratio, eam — quae erat illius ingenii ubertas et celeritas — tam festiva iucunditate tantoque pietatis odore consperbit, ea similitudinum varietate iisque et exemplis et locis aptissimis ornat, e Scriptura sacra plerumque depromptis, ut liber non tam ex eius mente quam ex visceribus medullisque manasse videatur. Eo etiam maioris momenti ac ponderis est Tractatus de amore Dei, in quo sanctus Doctor, quasi quandam Dei caritatis historiam scribere aggressus, narrat quae eius fuerit origo et quae progressiones, atque etiam quare in animis hominum defervescere ac languere coeperit; tradit deinceps, quomodo in ea exerceamur ac proficiamus. Nor was he less vigorous in resisting the interference of statesmen in the bestowing of ecclesiastical benefices. It possesses, too, in a remarkable degree the power to bind souls one to another. But when He does order us to do something He, by His very commands, admonishes us to do that which we are able to do and to ask from Him for assistance in that which we are not of ourselves able to do." He was in the habit, too, of reproaching with evangelical frankness the vices of the people and of unmasking the hypocrisy which tried to simulate virtue and piety. . After having pointed out the errors of these latter concerning the nature of the Church, he outlines the notes of the true Church and proves that they are not to be found in the reformed churches, but in the Catholic Church alone. VENERABILES FRATRES SALUTEM ET A POSTOLICAM BENEDICTIONEM. But St. Francis de Sales who, as We have pointed out, had already offered himself for missionary work to the Bishop of Geneva, started on foot in September, 1594, without food or money, and accompanied by no one except a cousin of his, to take up this work. Etenim haec tanta cohibenda est intemperantia cupiditatum, quae, bellorum litiumque causa princeps, sicut communem vitae consuetudinem, ita nationum commercia perverta; deducendae simul a fluxis caducisque bonis mentes singulorum, atque ad sempiterna et immortalia, quorum incredibilis incuria plerisque incessit, convertendae. On the Persecution of the Armenians. RERUM OMNIUM PERTURBATIONEM: Encyclical of Pope Pius XI on St. Francis de Sales; Agnes Day; The Man in the Desert! After this brief resume of the work and writings of St. Francis de Sales, Venerable Brothers, it only remains to exhort you to celebrate his Centenary as worthily as possible in your dioceses. Grant, O God, whose pleasure it is that We should govern His Church in these perilous times, that, under the patronage of St. Francis de Sales, who was gifted with a truly remarkable love and reverence for this Apostolic See and who, in the Controversies defended most valiantly its rights and its authority, it may happily come to pass that as many as are separated from the law and love of Christ shall return to the green pastures of the life eternal, that thus there may be given Us the opportunity to embrace them in unity and in the kiss of peace. v, 4). Venerable Brothers, history informs us that Our Predecessor, Clement VIII, in his time, anticipated Our conclusion that it would be a wonderful aid to the furthering of piety if the sermons and writings of St. Francis were brought to the attention of Christian peoples. It is necessary that they, in their writings, imitate and exhibit at all times that strength joined always to moderation and charity, which was the special characteristic of St. Francis. De natura et gratia, c. 43, n. 50. They, however, would not listen to his sermons. ENCYCLICAL OF POPE PIUS XI. In the Introduction to the Devout Life St. Francis, after showing clearly how hardness of heart discourages one in the practice of virtue and is altogether foreign to genuine piety (he does not strip piety of that severity which is in harmony with the Christian manner of life) then sets himself expressly to prove that holiness is perfectly possible in every state and condition of secular life, and to show how each man can live in the world in such a manner as to save his own soul, provided only he keeps himself free from the spirit of the world. Ecclesiam Dei "The Church of God" On St. Josaphat Kuntsevych: 12 November 1923 5. Iam si Salesii vitam studiose consideremus, fuit hic usque ab ineunte aetate specimen sanctimoniae, et illud non severum ac triste, sed blandum et commune omnibus, ut vere de eo praedicari posset: Non enim habet amaritudinem conversatio illius, nec taedium convictus illius, sed laetitiam et gaudium (4). (Apostolic Letter of Pius IX, 16 Nov. 1877) But, We cannot afford not to speak of his work entitled Controversies, in which unquestionably there is to be found a "full and complete demonstration of the truth of the Catholic Religion." Repulsed brutally, he never gave up the struggle; when threatened he only renewed his efforts. omnium (plural omniums) 1. Rerum omnium perturbationem, quae nunc adest, cum proxime in Encyclicis Litteris consideraremus medendi gratia, vidimus in ipsis hominum animis inhaerere malum, eiusque sanationem tum demum sperari posse si Iesu Christi medica per Ecclesiam sanctam manus invocetur. 10. Cum autem singuli fere officium sancte servare instituerint, eo ipso melius erit humanae societati. Alii enim, operosis negotiis implicati, nihil curant nisi de pecunia congerenda, dum animus misere esurit; alii vero, voluptatibus dediti, sic se abiiciunt in terram, ut gustatus earum rerum, quae supra sensus sunt, obtundatur in iis atque hebescat; alii denique ad tractandam accedunt rem publicam, de civitate quidem solliciti, at sui ipsorum immemores. What is more, it appears that Francis de Sales was given to the Church by God for a very special mission. What the Saint means by this metaphor is that if we are not called to an extraordinary personal perfection, nevertheless we can attain holiness by sanctifying the actions of everyday life. Studiorum ducem "On St. Thomas Aquinas" Thomas Aquinas: 29 June 1923: 4. 27. The Real Meaning of Christmas "To us, Christ is all!" He was not a gloomy, austere saint but was most amiable and friendly with all, so much so that it can be said of him most truthfully, "her conversation (wisdom) hath no bitterness, nor her company any tediousness, but joy and gladness." (Wisdom, viii, 16) Endowed with every virtue, he excelled in meekness of heart, a virtue so peculiar to himself that it might be considered his most characteristic trait. Idem denique praecipit, quibus artibus pericula, tentationes voluptatumque illecebras cum dignoscamus, tum superemus, et quo pacto animi statum per sancta proposita redintegremus quotannis ac renovemus. Rerum omnium perturbationem é uma encíclica do papa Pio XI, promulgada em 26 de janeiro de 1923 e escrita na ocasião do tricentenário da morte de São Francisco de Sales, quem o Papa declara patrono dos jornalistas e dos operários da comunicação. In quo quis non agnoscat singularem illam suavitatis cum fortitudine coniunctionem, qualem in legifero Patre admiramur ? This virtue, wherever it is practiced among men, tends primarily to settle the differences both public and private which so often separate us. Following this, he shows how necessary it is to select out a special virtue for constant practice on our part until we can say that we have mastered it. 36. 16. 7. If they fled him, he pursued, calling after them loudly. Finally, he teaches us how not only to conquer dangers, temptations, and the allurements of pleasure, but how every year it is necessary for each of us to renew and to rekindle his love of God by the making of holy resolutions. 12. Such an improvement is precisely the objective of the teachings and ministry of the Church, for her special mission is to instruct mankind by the preaching of truths which have been divinely revealed and to sanctify them by means of the grace of God. ENCYCLICAL OF POPE PIUS XI ON ST. FRANCIS DE SALES TO OUR VENERABLE BRETHREN THE PATRIARCHS, PRIMATES, ARCHBISHOPS, BISHOPS, AND OTHER ORDINARIES IN PEACE AND COMMUNION WITH THE APOSTOLIC SEE. (Matt. All are called by God to a state of sanctity and all are obliged to try to attain it. The solemn commemoration last year of the third centenary of the canonization of five great saints - Ignatius Loyola, Francis Xavier, Philip Neri, Teresa of Jesus, and Isidore the Farmer - helped greatly, Venerable Brothers, toward reawakening among the faithful a love for the Christian life. ького, у якій папа проголошує святого покровителем журналістів і ЗМІ. On the Church in the Pontifical States. Rerum omnium perturbationem "Disturbance of All Things" St. Francis De Sales: 26 January 1923: 3. xi, 29) so, by means of constant watchfulness over himself and of violence to his own will, he succeeded in learning how to curb and to control to such an extent the promptings of nature that he became a living likeness of the God of Peace and Meekness. It is Our wish that the greatest fruits should be gained from this solemn Centenary by those Catholics who as journalists and writers expound, spread, and defend the doctrines of the Church. The great need of our day is to curb the unmeasured desires of mankind, desires which are the fundamental cause of wars and dissensions, which act, too, as a dissolving force in social life and in international relations. RERUM OMNIUM PERTURBATIONEM (St. Francis de Sales) On Episcopal Meetings. 20. . At that time We pointed out that the roots of these evils lie in the souls of men and that the sole hope of curing them is to have recourse to the assistance of the Divine Healer Jesus Christ by the means which He has placed at the disposal of His Holy Church. 43, No. Etenim moderationem ac suavitatem in hac sodalitate, ut ita dicamus, spirant ac sapiunt omnia: cuius sodalitatis est proprium, ut virginibus feminisque viduis ac matronis vel debilibus atque aegris vel aetate provectis pateat, quarum vires incitatum animi studium haud exaequare videantur. Sinners and apostates especially flocked to his house in order, with his help, to become reconciled to God and to amend their lives. He teaches us to observe the social conventions which he calls one of the charming effects of virtuous living, not to destroy our natural inclinations but to conquer them so that little by little without too much effort, like the dove, if by chance there has not been granted us the strength of the eagle, we may raise ourselves even to heaven itself. Pope Pius XI, Rerum omnium perturbationem (#4), Jan. 26, 1923: “The saint was no less a person that Francis de Sales… he seemed to have been sent especially by God to contend against the heresies begotten by the [Protestant] Reformation. Quae paginarum confectio gradatim conquievit tum denique cum incolae sacris contionibus frequentissimi interesse coeperunt; schedae autem manu ipsius Sancti Doctoris scriptae et post eius obitum dissipatae, multo post in volumen collectae sunt et decessori Nostro Alexandro VII oblatae; cui postea contigit, ut eundem cum in beatorum tum in sanctorum caelitum numerum, iudicio rite absoluto, referret. We are now happily called upon to celebrate the Third Centenary of the entrance into heaven of another great saint, one who was remarkable not only for the sublime holiness of life which he achieved but also for the wisdom with which he directed souls in the ways of sanctity. Is there anyone who cannot recognize in their manner of life that union of strength and meekness which is so much to be admired in St. Francis himself, their holy Founder? This Pontiff, in the presence of Cardinals and other learned personages, after having gone deeply into the extent of the theological knowledge of St. Francis, who was then a bishop - elect, was seized with such admiration for him that he embraced him with great affection and addressed him in the following words: "Go, Son, 'drink water out of thy own cistern, and the streams of thy own well; let thy fountains be conveyed abroad, and in the streets divide thy waters'." Atque ut sacrorum munerum thesaurum, Nobis divinitus creditum, in animarum bonum reseremus, tribuimus, ut qui iis, quas diximus, supplicationibus pie interfuerint, unoquoque die septem annorum totidemque quadragenarum, et postremo eorum, vel quo alio cuivis libuerit, die plenariam usitatis condicionibus indulgentiam lucrentur. Quid enim ipsis agendum sit, sanctus Doctor exemplo suo aperte monet: ut scilicet doctrinam catholicam perdiligenter explorent et pro viribus calleant; vera ne depravent, neve, per speciem devitandae adversariorum offensionis, extenuent aut dissimulent; ipsam sermonis formam ac venustatem accurent, et cogitata sic luminibus verborum distinguant atque ornent, ut veritate lectores delectentur; si quos autem oppugnare debeant, sciant errata refellere malorumque hominum improbitati obsistere, ita tamen, ut se recte animatos in primisque cantate instinctos exhibeant. 18. Idem gravi eoque expedito scribendi genere, subtilique et festiva verborum sententiarumque usus varietate, qua praecepta commendantur fiuntque gratiora legentibus, postquam exposuit, esse nobis ab omni culpa, malis a propensionibus, a rebusque inutilibus ac noxiis abstinendum, dicere aggreditur quibus exercitationibus animum excolere et qua ratione cum Deo coniungi debeamus. *A.A.S., vol. See to it, therefore, that in your episcopal cities and in every parish of your dioceses that some time during the course of this year, up to December twenty-eighth inclusive, a triduum or a novena be held, during which sermons should be preached, for it is all-important that the people be well instructed in those truths which, under the guidance of St. Francis, cannot but raise the level of their spiritual lives. Because of these facts, Venerable Brothers, do you endeavor, following the example of St. Francis, to instruct thoroughly the faithful in the truth that holiness of life is not the privilege of a select few. Rerum omnium perturbationem, quae nunc adest, cum proxime in Encyclicis Litteris [2] , y consideraremus medendi gratia, vidimus in ipsis hominum animis inhaerere malum, eiusque sanationem tum demum sperari posse si Iesu Christi medica per Ecclesiam sanctam manus invocetur. Ad priorem autem quod attinet, postquam Salesius germanam pietatem ab ea distinxit asperitate quae animos in virtutis exercitatione terrendo debilitat, licet non illo exuat aequo rigore qui christianae disciplinae congruit, in eo totus est ut ostendat, sanctitatem cum omnibus civilis vitae officiis condicionibusque conciliari optime, atque in media saeculi consuetudine quemvis accommodate ad salutem posse degere, modo ne mundi hauriat imbibatque spiritum. . Non est igitur cur miremur, ab eo tam plurimos numero haereticos ad Ecclesiam revocatos esse, eodemque magistro ac duce tot fideles, hoc trium saeculorum intervallo, perfectum vitae institutum tenuisse. 15. RERUM OMNIUM PERTURBATIONEM: Encyclical of Pope Pius XI on St. Francis de Sales. He also outlines the methods of developing and of growing in the love of God. 13. In order to bestow a very special mark of Our affection on the Convent of the Sisters of the Visitation at Annecy, where the body of St. Francis rests - on the very altar over his body We have with great spiritual joy celebrated Mass - and on the Convent of Treviso where his heart is preserved, and on all other Visitation Convents, We grant during the functions which they will hold every month in thanksgiving to God, and over and above these days, on the twenty-eighth of December, but only for this particular year, to all who make the customary visits to their churches, the plenary indulgence, provided they confess and receive Holy Communion and pray according to Our intention. St. Francis published many works of piety, among which we may single out his two best known books, Philothea - An Introduction to the Devout Life and The Treatise on the Love of God. Rerum Omnium Perturbationem Pope Pius XI's Encyclical on St Francis de Sales - in English, Italian& Latin to our Venerable Brethren the Patriarchs, Primates, Archbishops, Bishops and other Ordinaries in Peace and Communion with the Apostolic See and has helped greatly in achieving the well-being of the people of God."

Basil 2011 December. 1 Dives in misericordia Deus, AAS 10, 411-12.: 2 Rerum omnium perturbationem.AAS 15.56. You can easily see, therefore, how important it is for the Christian people to turn to the example of holiness given by St. Francis, so that they may be edified thereby and may make his teachings the rule of their own lives.
