Jul 5. Posted by Mundabor. Iota Unum is a ruthless analysis of what has happened before, during and after the Second Vatican Council, and examines the rupture of sound Catholic tradition in a vast number of issues. The book is the more relevant, because it was written in times when only very few dared to say of Vatican II what today is acknowledged by a vast number of people. Romano Amerio lived to the end of his days surrounded by the hostility and mockery of the then largely unopposed Vatican-II crowd, his works ignored in the best of cases.
From his book a lot of energy transpires, a sincere love for the Church, and a fundamental optimism that Her indefectibility would allow her to survive. This man loved the Church dearly, and was ready to be mocked to the end of his days for it. But the contrast with the pre-Vatican II Church and sound theology is still shocking.

She will be tempted to believe that man has become God. In our churches, Christians will search in vain for the red lamp where God awaits them.
Like Mary Magdalene, weeping before the empty tomb, they will ask, 'Where have they taken Him? The modern world will accept no dogmas upon any authority; but it will accept any dogmas on no authority.
Say that a thing is so, according to the Pope or the Bible, and it will be dismissed as a superstition without examination. The world is what the saints and the prophets saw it was; it is not merely getting better or merely getting worse; there is one thing that the world does; it wobbles. Left to itself, it does not get anywhere; though if helped by real reformers of the right religion and philosophy, it may get better in many respects, and sometimes for considerable periods.
But in itself it is not a progress; it is not even a process; it is the fashion of this world that passeth away. Life in itself is not a ladder; it is a see-saw. It is the democracy of the dead. Tradition refuses to submit to the small and arrogant oligarchy of those who merely happen to be walking about. Upon this act, sincerely believed to be an act of justice, warranted by the Constitution, I invoke the considerate judgment of mankind and the gracious favor of Almighty God.
I call upon the citizens of this blessed land to gather on that day in their homes and places of worship to give thanks for the gift of life they enjoy and to reaffirm their commitment to the dignity of every human being and sanctity of every human life". On this day and throughout the year, we aspire to build a society in which every child is welcome in life and protected in law. We also encourage more of our fellow Americans to join our just and noble cause.
History tells us that with a cause rooted in our deepest principles and appealing to the best instincts of our citizens, we will prevail. George W.

Grand Returns. "Iota unum" and "Stat veritas" by Romano Amerio
Two outstanding works of Catholic culture are returning to the bookstores. And the taboo on one of the greatest Christian intellectuals of the twentieth century is crumbling definitively. The question he highlights is also at the center of Benedict XVI's pontificate: how much can the Church change, and in what way? Their content is in striking harmony with the title and foundation of Benedict XVI's third encyclical: "Caritas in Veritate.
