rerum omnium perturbationem

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. For this reason they are not obligated to long vigils or to the changing of the holy office, neither are they required to undergo strict penances and mortifications. Atque apostolatui, quem vocant, cum sacerdotum tum laicorum, si quidem christianam lenitatem praeferat, numquid non ingens accedat vis ad societatem hominum emendandam? The first missionary sent deserted the held of battle, either because he despaired of converting these heretics or because he feared them. In 1923, he began with St. Francis De Sales (Rerum Omnium Perturbationem) and St. Thomas Aquinas (Studorium Ducem). Rerum Omnium Perturbationem - On St. Francis de Sales - 1.26.1923 Ubi Arcano Dei Consilio - On the peace of Christ in the Kingdom of Christ - 12.23.1922 Latest Videos: 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. Qua in re, Venerabiles Fratres, memoriae traditum est, decessorem Nostrum Clementem VIII iam tum praenuntiasse quam mirificam essent Francisci et verba et scripta in populo habitura virtutem. 34. For example, Leo XIII in his Rerum novarum taught that 6 "virtue however is the common patrimony of all mortals, [and is] equally obtainable by high and low, rich and proletariat. (de Natura et Gratia, Chap. Vestrum igitur in primis erit, haec verba Nostra ad clerum populumque vobis concreditum perferre, atque illustrare diligenter. 10. This he does not do dryly but, by reason of the agile and well-stored mind which he possessed, in such a way that his discussions abound in most beautiful language and are filled with an equally desirable function. Teach them, too, that the acquisition of virtue, although it cannot be done without much labor (such labor has its own compensations, the spiritual consolations and joys which always accompany it) it is possible for everyone with the aid of God's grace, which is never denied us. Cum enim Pontifex, Purpuratis Patribus doctissimisque viris assidentibus, Salesii, ad episcopatum electi, sacrarum disciplinarum scientiam expertus esset, tanta affectus est admiratione, ut hominem peramanter amplexus, iis verbis sit allocutus: Vade, fili, et bibe aquam de cisterna tua et fluenta putei tui, deriventur fontes tui foras, et in plateis aquas tuas divide (12). 32. (Matt. Multa quidem Salesii scripta praeterimus, unde etiam caelestis eius doctrina, veluti aquae vivae flumen, irrigando Ecclesiae agro... utiliter populo Dei fluxit ad salutem (10); at facere non possumus quin Controversiarum librum memoremus, in quo, sine ulla dubitatione, plena catholicae fidei demonstratio (11) habetur. (Judges xiv, 14) Is it any wonder, then that this "pastoral kindliness" which he possessed and which, according to St. John Chrysostom "is more violent than virtue" (Homily 58 on Genesis) possessed the power to attract hearts in that very measure of success which Christ Himself has promised to the meek - "Blessed are the meek: for they shall possess the land." St. Francis likewise disproved the false idea that holiness was so hedged around by annoyances and hardships that it is inadaptable to a life lived outside cloister walls. ького, у якій папа проголошує святого покровителем журналістів і ЗМІ. On the Church in the Pontifical States. In fact, St. Francis preached so well that his sermons were but "an exposition of the grace and power which dwelt within his own soul." Since we feel it is more beneficial, this glossary has been arranged topically rather than alphabetically.- Papacy – the office of a pope, the successor of St. Peter, which was founded by Jesus Christ (Mt. It possesses, too, in a remarkable degree the power to bind souls one to another. De natura et gratia, c. 43, n. 50. Atqui huc omne spectat cum magisterium tum ministerium Ecclesiae catholicae, ut homínes et traditae divinitus veritatis praedicatione erudiat et uberrimis divinae gratiae effusionibus sanctificet ; atque ita hanc ipsam civilem societatem, quam olim ad christianos spiritus conformavit et finxit, ubi de via deflectentem animadverterit, revocare in pristinum contendat. Itaque evangelica libertate cum in publica vitia invehi, tum simulatam virtutem pietatemque consueverat detegere; veritusque, si unquam alius, Principum maiestatem, semper tamen ita se gessit ut eorum nec assentaretur cupiditatibus nec intemperanti arbitrio obsequeretur. 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. 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. He applied the selfsame spiritual principles to the direction of the Sisters of the Visitation, which institution founded by him has preserved most faithfully, even to our own times, his spirit. 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. In this work the saintly Doctor gives a veritable history of the love of God, explaining its origin and development among men, at the same time showing how divine love begins to cool and then to languish. Caelestium interea donorum conciliatrix et paternae benevolentiae Nostrae testis sit apostolica benedictio, quam vobis, Venerabiles Fratres, universoque clero ac populo vestro amantissime impertimus. It is not surprising then that such a great number of heretics returned to the Church because of his work and that, following the guidance of such a teacher, so many of the faithful have, during the last three hundred years, attained a truly high degree of perfection. 16:18-20; John 21:15-17) upon St. Peter as head of the Christian Church. After having pointed out how we must flee sin, fight against our evil inclinations, and avoid all useless and harmful actions, he then goes on expounding the nature of those practices of piety which cause the soul to grow, as well as how it is possible for man to remain ever united to God. (I Thess. 50.). He would celebrate Mass though no one would attend. Sed enim vel in controversiarum libro eandem animi effusionem reperire licet eundemque illum spiritum, quo redundant opera ad fovendam pietatem ab eo confecta; oratio autem tam elegans, tam urbana, tam bene ad persuadendum composita, ut ipsi haeresis administri asseclas suos soliti essent admonere, ne Genevensis missionalis blandimentis allici se et capi paterentur. 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. . (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." 1. The atmosphere of this particular religious community is one of moderation and loving kindness in all things. 17. Quae eius mansuetudo, quemadmodum ad universos pertinebat, sic nullo unquam tempore, nec in prosperis nec in adversis rebus, factum est ut deficeret; eum igitur, quantumcumque divexarent, nunquam haeretici eo minus comem sibi facilemque experti sunt. Ecclesiam Dei "The Church of God" On St. Jehosophat: 12 November 1923: 5. 30. 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'." Italy . 13. Rerum condicio: October 4, 1927 A.D.

When, during a sermon, almost the entire audience one after another left the Church, he would continue preaching. Indeed, his zeal was so great that during the first year of his priesthood, he attempted, despite the opposition of his own father, to reconcile the people of La Chablais to the Church. 23. 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. 33. 14 His contribution to papal teaching on preaching is seen in three documents: Rerum Omnium Perturbationem, “On St. Francis De Sales,” Rerum Ecclesiae, “On the Catholic Missions,” and Ad Catholici Sacerdotii, … The meekness of St. Francis was therefore an effect of his tremendous will power, constantly strengthened by his lively faith and the fires of divine love which burned within him. 8. Nor was he less vigorous in resisting the interference of statesmen in the bestowing of ecclesiastical benefices. At the same time we learn from the Saint how not only to perform the customary acts of everyday life, (with the exception, of course, of sin) but also a fact which all do not know, how to do these things correctly with the sole intention of pleasing God. These leaflets were distributed about in great quantities and passed from hand to hand with the object of having them find their way into the possession of the heretics. It is no less necessary to turn back the minds of men from the passing things of this world to those which are eternal, which latter unhappily are too often neglected by the great majority of mankind. 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. May it please God that this book, the most perfect of its kind in the opinion of contemporaries of the Saint, be read now as it formerly was by practically every one. 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. *A.A.S., vol. Verum eiusmodi facilitas atque in agendo iucunditas eo informari debet caritatis igne, qui efficiat, ut religiosae mulieres, quae Salesio auctore gloriantur, cum se penitus abnegent, tum modestissime pareant, et, non speciosas sed solidas perseguendo virtutes, sibimet moriantur ut Deo vivant. 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. 36. 26. We cannot accept the belief that this command of Christ concerns only a select and privileged group of souls and that all others may consider themselves pleasing to Him if they have attained a lower degree of holiness. ; with John Bergsma; Saint Gregory of Nyssa; Ushering in the New Year of Faith! iv, 3) Christ Himself has taught what this sanctification consists in - "Be ye therefore perfect as your heavenly Father is perfect." TO OUR VENERABLE BRETHREN THE PATRIARCHS, PRIMATES, ARCHBISHOPS, BISHOPS, AND OTHER ORDINARIES IN PEACE. RERUM OMNIUM PERTURBATIONEM (St. Francis de Sales) On Episcopal Meetings. Mirabile est autem quam copioso doctrinae apparatu et quam sapienter instructa tamquam acie argumentorum noster adversarios adoriatur, eorumque mendacia et fallacias, ironia etiam dissimulantiaque felicissime usus, patefaciat.

In comperto est, Venerabiles Fratres, quibus temporibus sacram ad Chaballicenses expeditionem Franciscus susceperit. COMMUNIUM RERUM Pope Saint Pius X's Encyclical on St Anselm of Aosta to our Venerable Brethren the Patriarchs, Primates, Archbishops, Bishops, and other ordinaries in Peace and Communion with the Apostolic See - in English & Italian. 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. Cum autem is, qui primis regionem adiit, vel quod haereticorum desperaret emendationem vel quod sibi metueret, e sacro certamine discessisset, Salesius, qui sese, ut diximus, Episcopo Genevensi missionalem obtulerat, mense Septembri anno MDLXXXXIV, pedes, sine cibariis domesticisque copiis, nullo nisi fratris patruelis comitatu, ieiuniis precibusque ante iteratis cum sibi unice a Deo prosperum incepti exitum sponderet, in regionem haereticorum ingreditur. In quo quis non agnoscat singularem illam suavitatis cum fortitudine coniunctionem, qualem in legifero Patre admiramur ? 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. Our esteemed Predecessor, Benedict XV, referring to the five saints We have spoken of, also made mention of the approaching Centenary of the death of Francis de Sales and expressed the hope of writing particularly of him in an encyclical addressed to the whole world. 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. XV (1923), n. 2, pp. Cum enim, anno post initum sacerdotium, Episcopo Genevensi Granerio ipse, invito ac repugnante patre, ultro se ad Chaballicenses Ecclesiae reconciliandos obtulisset, traditamque sibi perlibenter eam provinciam, magnam quidem ac difficilem, tanto studio exsequeretur, nullos ut labores recusaret, nulla vel capitis pericula refugeret, ad salutem tot hominum millibus parandam non tam eius summa doctrinae copia ac dicendi vis et facultas, quam invicta in peragendis sacri ministerii partibus benignitas profuit. Why Jesus was Baptized and Tempted? 27. 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. Encyclica. 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. Likewise can we not hope that, through the practice of this virtue which we rightly call the external sign of the inner possession of divine love, there will result perfect peace and concord both in family life and among nations? On the Greek-Ruthenian Rite. 18. 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. In the first place, and this the most important of all, each writer should endeavor in every way and as far as this may be possible to obtain a complete comprehension of the teachings of the Church. 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. 7. Gladly We will try to fulfill this as well as the other wishes of Our Predecessor, for We look upon them as a sacred heritage left Us by him. Nec vero fieri poterat, quin pastoralis mansuetudo, qua florebat, quaque, ut ait Chrysostomus, nihil violentius (7), eam in alliciendis hominum voluntatibus haberet efficacitatem, quae mitibus divino promittitur oraculo: Beati mites, quoniam ipsi possidebunt terram (8). Rerum omnium perturbationem "Disturbance of All Things" St. Francis De Sales: 26 January 1923: 3. In this he was gladly seconded by Granier, the Bishop of Geneva. Nam prima aetate incidimus in ipsam perturbationem disciplinae veteris; et consulatu devenimus in medium rerum omnium certamen atque discrimen; et hoc tempus omne post consulatum obiecimus eis fluctibus, qui, per nos a communi peste depulsi, in nosmet ipsos redundarunt. It is in these heresies that we discover the beginnings of that apostasy of mankind from the Church, the sad and disastrous effects of which are deplored, even to the present hour, by every fair mind. 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. When necessary he even goes deeply into explanations of the most difficult problems as, for example, that of efficacious grace, predestination, and the gift of faith. 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. . 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. 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. All are called by God to a state of sanctity and all are obliged to try to attain it. Rerum Omnium Perturbationem "All the Disturbing Things" St. Francis De Sales: 26 January 1923: 3. 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. 49-63. We do not wish that this Centenary should become a mere commemoration of certain events of history which would turn out a purely sterile function, neither that it should be restricted to a few selected days. Erit praeterea vobis curae, ut iis aliis, qui opportuniores videantur, modis sanctissimi Episcopi res gestae commemorentur. It would be impossible to exaggerate the value of his books and pamphlets, of which We have written, to attain this purpose. The circumstances surrounding the mission of St. Francis to La Chablais are well known to you, Venerable Brothers, for when, towards the close of 1593, as we learn from history, the Duke of Savoy concluded a truce with the inhabitants of Berne and Geneva, nothing was thought more important in order to reconcile the population to the Church than to send them zealous and learned preachers who, by the persuasive force of their eloquence, would slowly but surely win back these people to their allegiance to the Faith. This saint was no less a person than Francis de Sales, Bishop of Geneva and Doctor of the Universal Church. 22. Nec vero quisquam patet ad paucos quosdam lectissimos id pertinere, ceterisque in inferiore quodam virtutis gradu licere consistere. Itaque, Venerabiles Fratres, cum de Francisci Salesii rebus gestis et scriptis aliquid delibaverimus, reliquum est ut vos cohortemur ad saecularem eius memoriam in singulis vestris dioecesibus salubriter celebrandam. His sermons, since they were largely made up of the teachings of the Bible and of the Fathers, became not only a source of sound doctrine but were agreeable and persuasive to his hearers as well by reason of the sweetness of the love which filled his heart.
