“[C]ertain it is that the passion for novelty is always united in [the modernists] with hatred of scholasticism [
i.e
., the philosophy and theology of St. Thomas Aquinas], and
there is no surer sign that a man is on the way to Modernism than when he begins to show his dislike for [the scholastic] system
.” Pope St. Pius X,
 Pascendi Dominici Gregis
, 1907, ¶42 (emphasis added)
.
 “Thomas refutes the theories propounded by Modernists in every sphere …. Modernists are so amply justified in fearing no Doctor of the Church so much as Thomas  Aquinas.” Pope Pius XI,
 Studiorum Ducem
, ¶27.

Preface
The Purpose of this Book
Pope Benedict XVI stated that there were two ways to interpret the teachings of Vatican II. In his Christmas  Address to the Roman Curia, on December 22, 2005, the pope asked: Why has the implementation of the Council, in large parts of the Church, thus far been so difficult? Well, it all depends on the correct interpretation of the Council or – as we would say today – on its proper hermeneutics, the correct key to its interpretation and application. The problems in its implementation arose from the fact that two contrary hermeneutics came face to face and quarreled with each other. One caused confusion, the other, silently but more and more visibly, bore and is bearing fruit. On the one hand, there is an interpretation that I would call ‘a hermeneutic of discontinuity and rupture’; it has frequently availed itself of the sympathies of the mass media, and also one trend of modern theology. On the other, there is the ‘hermeneutic of reform’, of renewal in the continuity of the one subject-Church which the Lord has given to us. Pope Benedict XVI asserts that the correct “hermeneutic” is one of reform and continuity with the teachings of the Church before  Vatican II.
