New post Rosmini
Regarding Rosmini:

Ranzinger apparently contradicted on July 2, 2001, the Holy See's 1887 40 Condemned Propositions of Rosmini (Dz. 1891-1930) in his
NOTE
on the Force of the Doctrinal Decrees
Concerning the Thought and Work of Fr Antonio Rosmini Serbati


Ratzinger writes:
Quote:
2. A hasty and superficial reading of these different interventions [of 1887] might make one think that they give rise to an intrinsic and objective contradiction on the part of the Magisterium in its way of interpreting the content of Rosmini's thought and in the way it evaluates it for the People of God.

However, an attentive reading not just of the Congregation's texts, but of their context and of the situation in which they were promulgated, which also allows for historical development, helps one to appreciate the watchful and coherent work of reflection that always kept in mind the safeguarding of the Catholic faith and the determination not to allow deviant or reductive interpretations of the faith. The present Notice on the doctrinal value of the earlier decrees fits into this train of thought.
Questions:
  1. Is there a contradiction between Ratzinger's note and the Holy See's 1887 40 Condemned Propositions of Rosmini?
  2. Is Ratzinger's note infallible, since it was promulgated under the auspices of John Paul II, assuming he was a true pope?
  3. If (1) and (2), then isn't this enough to establish the sedevacantist thesis? Viz., doesn't this prove the Conciliar Church's "magisterium" is not at all the Catholic Magisterium?
  4. Would this be the first time a magisterial document (this Note in this case) recommends a historicist exegesis of previous magisterial documents? Did the Church suggest historicism for the exegete to make sense of, e.g., the historical development of the Magisterium's pronouncements regarding heliocentrism?

Rosmini believed, among many other things, that humans know God first before coming to knowledge of anything else, that God was compelled to create the universe, and that a child's soul is created by his parents, not ex nihilo by God alone. He, like De Lubac, pantheistically destroys the distinction between the natural and supernatural orders.
