When asked to name 2-3 of his "favorite" encyclicals to be covered this season, with an exception for Pascendi, Bishop Sanborn named Mirari Vos. Coincidentally, it is also the first encyclical we will examine this season.
In writing Mirari Vos, Pope Gregory XVI was dealing with the ongoing fallout of the French Revolution and the "restorations" that had happened superficially, but had not gone down to the root. He addresses many errors prevalent at the time that are simply part of what we live with today: so-called "freedom of conscience," "freedom of the press," and the error of indifferentism: that any religion can save you.
Enjoy His Excellency's timely and relevant commentary on timeless Magisterial writing.
