The Doctor Of The Vatican II Sect


 My spiritual father, Fr. Gommar A. DePauw, JCD, used to tell me, "The Jesuits are always good for a laugh or a heresy. Usually both." I couldn't help but think of his truthful quip when it was brought to my attention that there is an online petition to "Pope" Francis, asking him to declare the vile heretic Fr. Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, SJ as a "Doctor of the Church." (See https://action.groundswell-mvmt.org/petitions/declare-pierre-teilhard-de-chardin-s-j-a-doctor-of-the-roman-catholic-church). Who is Teilhard de Chardin? This post will expose his life and works which his admirers are trying to obscure and thereby paint the (demonstrably false) picture of a man hailed as "priest, geologist, paleontologist, philosopher, theologian, and mystic, [who] was both a distinguished scientist and one of the most influential and visionary thinkers that the Catholic Church produced in the twentieth century." (Ibid).  Most people have probably never heard of Teilhard (1881-1955) or the destruction which he brought to the Church and the world at large.

His Early Life
Pierre Teilhard de Chardin was born in south central France on May 1, 1881, and was educated at the Jesuit College at Mongre; he joined the Society of Jesus (Jesuits) in 1899. Teilhard continued philosophy and seminary education from 1901-05. This was followed by a three-year sojourn to Cairo, Egypt, where he taught physics and chemistry at a Jesuit school and developed his interest in paleontology. He went to England in 1908, studied theology, and was ordained to the priesthood in 1911 at the age of 30. He returned to Paris and studied paleontology thereby earning a doctorate in 1922.

Two men influenced Teilhard in his priestly formation:

  • Fr. George Tyrell, one of the most vociferous Modernists of the era. He denied the Virgin Birth and the Resurrection. He was excommunicated by Pope St. Pius X in 1908, and died unrepentant
  • Henri Bergson, a French Jew and philosopher whose theories on science and evolution fascinated young Teilhard
Teilhard de Chardin had fully bought into Modernism, and he set about to create a "new, improved Christianity." In his own words:

"As you already know, what dominates my interest and my preoccupations is the effort to establish in myself and to spread around a new religion (you may call it a better Christianity) in which the personal God ceases to be the great Neolithic proprietor of former times, in order to become the soul of the world; our religious and cultural stage calls for this." (Trojan Horse in the City of God, 1967, p. 239; Emphasis mine). 

Teilhard: Forger and Pantheist
 Teilhard's fervor to prove radical evolution knew no bounds. He was involved in the Piltdown Man hoax. In 1912, Charles Dawson (an amateur "archaeologist") claimed he had found a "human-like" skull that he proclaimed the "missing link" in evolution. He was assisted at the dig by none other than Teilhard (among others). De Chardin boldly proclaimed his "missing link" as proof of his ideas. In November 1953, Time magazine published evidence gathered variously by Kenneth Page Oakley, Sir Wilfrid Edward Le Gros Clark and Joseph Weiner proving that the Piltdown Man was a forgery and demonstrating that the fossil was a composite of three distinct species. It consisted of a human skull of medieval age, the 500-year-old lower jaw of an orangutan and chimpanzee fossil teeth. Someone had created the appearance of age by staining the bones with an iron solution and chromic acid. Microscopic examination revealed file-marks on the teeth, and it was deduced from this that someone had modified the teeth to a shape more suited to a human diet. (See http://content.time.com/time/magazine/article/0,9171,823171,00.html).

Teilhard's philosophy transformed the universe from a place in which we exist to a place that, through evolution, exists with us. Evolution, for Teilhard, is the hermeneutic key for understanding the place of Christ within the vast cosmos. Teilhard saw everything moving towards perfection—which he called the Omega Point—as a movement toward God that was simultaneously physical and spiritual. He called the transformation divinization, and saw humanity as currently passing through an evolutionary-spiritual dimension he termed the Noosphere, so that we can enter the final stages of the Pneumatosphere and become one with God.

It's not difficult to see how his ideas are akin to pagan Hindu pantheism with evolution thrown in the mix. Moreover, what do these fancy sounding words and phrases (Omega point, Noosphere, etc.) mean? They were simply made up by Teilhard (like Piltdown Man) to justify his heterodox ideas and make them sound "profound." In Teilhard's own blasphemous words, "Christ saves. But must we not hasten to add that Christ, too, is saved by evolution?" (See Le Christique, [1955])

For a priest, he spent a most of his time going on excavations and writing his theology/philosophy books. When he was a missionary in China, he never made a single convert, and he almost never offered the Most Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.


Teilhard: Eugenicist and Heretic
Some of  Teilhard's  writings suggest he was a racist, who believed the Chinese were "sub-human."

Here's a sample from his writing:
Do the yellows—[the Chinese]—have the same human value as the whites? [Fr.] Licent and many missionaries say that their present inferiority is due to their long history of Paganism. I’m afraid that this is only a ‘declaration of pastors.’ Instead, the cause seems to be the natural racial foundation…Christian love overcomes all inequalities, but it does not deny them.

No humane hopes for an organized society must cause us to forget that the human stratum may not be homogeneous. If it were not, it would be necessary to find for the Chinese, as for the Negroes, their special function, which may not (by biological impossibility) be that of the whites. (April 6, 1927 letter--pure racism)

The philosophical or ‘supernatural’ unity of human nature has nothing to do with the equality of races in what concerns their physical capacities to contribute to the building of the world.…As not all ethnic groups have the same value, they must be dominated, which does not mean they must be despised—quite the reverse…In other words, at one and the same time there should be official recognition of: (1) the primacy/priority of the earth over nations; (2) the inequality of peoples and races. Now the second point is currently reviled by Communism…and the Church, and the first point is similarly reviled by the Fascist systems (and, of course, by less gifted peoples!). (See Philosophy and Theology Volume 29, Issue 1, [2017], pgs. 69-82). 

Teilhard believed in polygenism, which posits the idea that the human race had different origins, as opposed to a single couple; Adam and Eve. His heretical theory was roundly condemned in the brilliant encyclical Humani Generis of Pope Pius XII, which was drafted by the eminent Dominican theologian Fr. Reginald Garrigou-Lagrange. As the result of his evolutionism and polygenism, he denied not only the First Parents of the human race, but as a necessary consequence, he denied the dogma of Original Sin. The outcome of this rejection will be detailed later in this post. Let's first see how the True Church reacted to Teilhard de Chardin:


  • 1926, his Superior forbade him to teach
  • 1933, the Holy See ordered him to give up his subsequent post in Paris
  • 1939, the Holy See banned some of his writings
  • 1947, Rome also forbade him to write or teach on philosophical subjects
  • 1955, his Superiors forbade de Chardin to attend the International Congress on Paleontology. That same year, de Chardin died in New York on Easter Sunday

Even under Roncalli (John XXIII), he was censured posthumously. On June 30, 1962, a Monitum ("warning") was given at Rome by the Holy Office: "It is sufficiently clear that the above mentioned works abound in such ambiguities and indeed even serious errors, as to offend Catholic doctrine. For this reason, the most eminent and most reverend Fathers of the Holy Office exhort all Ordinaries as well as Superiors of Religious Institutes, rectors of seminaries and presidents of universities, effectively to protect the minds, particularly of the youth, against the dangers presented by the works of Teilhard de Chardin and his followers." Of course the Monitum of 1962 was a dead letter, which was never enforced, as Teilhard's works spread like wildfire in seminaries and Catholic Universities during the early 1960s. 

The True Church, always vigilant, was wise to try and stop Teilhard by Her numerous censures thereby making him a condemned theologian. Here are some of the results of his ideas:

1. If there is no Original Sin, there is no need of a Redeemer. If there was no Adam, Christ could not be the Second Adam Who died to ransom us from sin. (Sin, in all forms, is downplayed or outright denied). 

2. The Holy Sacrifice of the Mass is not the unbloody re-presentation throughout time of the Sacrificial death of Christ, since there was no need of it. (Mass becomes a "celebration of the people" who are "evolving towards God" and will become One). 

3. Since everything is evolving, there is no fixed and immutable dogmas or morality (One religion or set of morals is as good as another).

4. Eventually, everyone gets to enjoy happiness--there is no Hell for the wicked (Hell is considered "negative" and outdated theology).

5. In his pantheistic idea, not only humanity, but all of nature is evolving. Hence, there should be reverence for the Earth; Teilhard will sometimes describe Earth as an "altar" upon which humanity and nature are "transubstantiated."

You can see these ideas at work in the Vatican II sect. He helped shape the Robber Council and the sect it created. How, you might ask, can someone who was censured and had his ideas condemned, be so quickly rehabilitated to the point of adopting his heresies? It started way before the unenforced Monitum of 1962. The Modernists were driven underground but were never extirpated. Teilhard himself, when condemned under Pope Pius XII, said: "I have got so many friends in good strategic positions, that I feel quite safe about the future" (Letter, Sept. 24, 1947, wherein de Chardin remarks on his numerous disciples in positions of great influence in the Church, which would certainly appear to have been borne out by the accolades given de Chardin during the Second Vatican Council--Emphasis mine).


The "Doctor" is IN
The Vatican II sect praises the very man and ideas that were condemned by the True Church. Here is what the post-concilliar "popes" had to say:

Wojtyla (John Paul II): When I think of the Eucharist, and look at my life as a priest, as a Bishop and as the Successor of Peter, I naturally recall the many times and places in which I was able to celebrate it. I remember the parish church of Niegowić, where I had my first pastoral assignment, the collegiate church of Saint Florian in Krakow, Wawel Cathedral, Saint Peter's Basilica and so many basilicas and churches in Rome and throughout the world. I have been able to celebrate Holy Mass in chapels built along mountain paths, on lakeshores and seacoasts; I have celebrated it on altars built in stadiums and in city squares... This varied scenario of celebrations of the Eucharist has given me a powerful experience of its universal and, so to speak, cosmic character. Yes, cosmic! Because even when it is celebrated on the humble altar of a country church, the Eucharist is always in some way celebrated on the altar of the world. It unites heaven and earth. It embraces and permeates all creation. (See Ecclesia Eucharistica, 2003, para. #8; Emphasis mine).

Ratzinger (Benedict XVI): The role of the priesthood is to consecrate the world so that it may become a living host, a liturgy: so that the liturgy may not be something alongside the reality of the world, but that the world itself shall become a living host, a liturgy. This is also the great vision of Teilhard de Chardin: in the end we shall achieve a true cosmic liturgy, where the cosmos becomes a living host. And let us pray the Lord to help us become priests in this sense, to aid in the transformation of the world, in adoration of God, beginning with ourselves. That our lives may speak of God, that our lives may be a true liturgy, an announcement of God, a door through which the distant God may become the present God, and a true giving of ourselves to God. (See http://w2.vatican.va/content/benedict-xvi/en/homilies/2009/documents/hf_ben-xvi_hom_20090724_vespri-aosta.html; Emphasis mine).

Bergoglio (Francis): In the Eucharist, fullness is already achieved; it is the living center of the universe, the overflowing core of love and of inexhaustible life. Joined to the incarnate Son, present in the Eucharist, the whole cosmos gives thanks to God. Indeed the Eucharist is itself an act of cosmic love [as John Paul II wrote]: "Yes, cosmic! Because even when it is celebrated on the humble altar of a country church, the Eucharist is always in some way celebrated on the altar of the world". (See Laudato Si 2015, para. #236; Emphasis mine). 

Conclusion
 Bergoglio is considering removing the Monitum of 1962 against Teilhard, thus making de jure what has been de facto all these years. His false ideas of evolution, pantheism, and polygenism have helped to create and shape the Vatican II sect. The sect must continually "evolve" to remain "relevant to the times." Now, we have a documentary set to air in 2020 on PBS praising Teilhard de Chardin's life and work. Worse still, there is an online petition to declare the liar, heretic, and eugenicist a "Doctor of the Church." What we're witnessing is the opposite of what Teilhard taught: The devolution  of whatever is left of Faith and Morals in the Vatican II sect into error, impiety, and outright evil.

  1. Very informative article.

    It's a mystery, but if Fr. George Tyrell was excommunicated in 1908 for his denial of the Virgin Birth and the Resurrection and who heavily influenced Fr. Pierre Teilhard de Chardin then why instead of just being censored and his writings banned was he also not excommunicated? I mean the denial of Hell was a good enough reason to excommunicate him, let alone his other heretical points such as the denial of needing a Redeemer and the Mass being a Sacrifice. I mean why the heck did this man become priest for? Or better yet how did he pass the seminaries believing such nonsense? Did he keep it quiet for a time or were his superiors as bad as him, at the time, for similar reason? I understand how Pope St. Pius X mauled the modernists pretty hard, but it's like they were tapeworms attaching themselves to a host and once broken up still were able to live and multiply so long as they had something to feed off of. So sad.

    1. Teilhard was charismatic and had powerful friends who protected him as much as possible in Rome. In 1947, he was forced to sign a document that stated he believed in Original Sin. Although it bothered him, he made himself seem compliant to the Church. Cardinal Ottaviani and Theologian Garrigou-Lagrange wanted him excommunicated, but with his duplicity in signing a profession of Faith, and influential friends who vouched for him, he was able to avoid formal excommunication unlike Tyrell.

  2. Very interesting. So in other words, it didn't bother him to sign something he didn't believe in. Afterwards, just keep preaching heresy and maybe nobody will notice. What a wicked man and yet the Novus ordo is considering to call him a "Doctor of the Church." The Novus Ordo just proves more and more every day how wicked it is as well.

    2. After much hand wringing and lamenting, the RR and neo-cons will eventually accept any heresy and blasphemy from their progessive wing. They will draw endless lines in the sand everytime claiming that this is the last line. Pathetic.

    3. One major problem is the average man and woman under 55 yrs old don't care about Catholicism or religion in general.
      I've heard a few traditional priests and one trad bishop openly declare how traditional chapels are declining in numbers or not replacing the older ones currently dying off.

      You are the man. What you say is so true. Everybody now is so worldly, liberal, and their priorities are so screwed up it's beyond ridiculous. The problem is that many believe like Pierre Teilhard de Chardin. As Introibo mentioned 4. "Eventually, everyone gets to enjoy happiness--there is no Hell for the wicked (Hell is considered "negative" and outdated theology). When people are told they would go to Hell if they commit a particular sin they get so offended as if they are exempt from it. We hear things like "God wouldn't send those He loves to Hell" or "How can I be happy if one on my close relatives is in Hell and I'm in heaven. It doesn't seem possible" God is all loving so how can their be a Hell etc. etc. etc. etc. etc. When there are no consequences in the mind, there is no fear.

  4. Who does this megalomaniac think he is by trying to change the Church that the Lord Jesus created? Why would anyone in their right mind try to usurp the Lord's Church? Why do people go along with it? This man was fit for nothing but to be excommunicated. For the Vatican II Sect to try to make this imp of satan a Doctor of the Church just shows how incredibly blind and deceived the Vatican II Sect is.

  5. So how many pseudo Catholic universities made this heretic mandatory reading especially in the 80’s? Marquette for sure, and I would guess Georgetown and Notre Dame as well, and this is why there are so many conciliars around the age of 55-60 who are brainwashed. I guess the question is, where isn’t he taught? You walk into any supposed Catholic bookstore and he is all over the place.

      Absolutely, he is mandatory reading because those of us born in or after the Great Apostasy were not dealing with the Catholic Church but the Vatican II sect, of which they want to make him a “Doctor.”

      Of interest: Malachi Martin (not the most reliable source to say the least), claimed in his best selling book “Hostage to the Devil,” that one of the possessed people that were given exorcism had become possessed by reading the works of Teilhard. I don’t know the veracity of the story, but do I believe his books to be THAT evil? Yes.

    1. Ryan,
      In the beginning of the twentieth century, many Modernists had infiltrated the ranks of the Jesuits. That they would strike the Jesuits is not surprising since the Society Of Jesus was dedicated to upholding the papacy.

      The teachings of men such as George Tyrell had enormous influence. More and more Jesuits became infected with Modernism. Fr Pedro Arrupe became General Superior in 1965, and was a notorious Modernist. He finished off the Order by “implementing Vatican II “ and launching a full scale persecution of any non-Modernist Jesuits.

      The decline that began circa 1900 was in full force by the 1920s and culminated circa 1975, 11 years after the birth of the Vatican II sect.

  7. As one who attended the seminary during most of the 1970's, I can confirm that the name of Teilhard de Chardin floated around frequently and always in a manner that would make him appear as a theologian who should be considered as a positive influence associated with the "reforms" of Vatican II. I can only thank God for having protected me from continuing down that road of destruction.

      Indeed it says it all. The (now closed) seminary for the Diocese of Rockville Centre (Long Island) dedicated it's library (and named it in honor of) George Tyrell, an excommunicated Modernist who died outside the Church and influenced Teilhard as I wrote in my post. This is the new religion of Vatican II, and it's destroying the world.
