[xii] Having narrowly avoided censure simply for using the word “reform”, it seems that it was an article sympathetic to the “priest-worker” movement which was the last straw. A decade later, Paul VI drew on Vraie et fausse réforme when writing his encyclical Ecclesiam Suam (see History, Vol.II., p. 452).
[xiii] B. J. F. Lonergan, Collection (London: Darton, Longman and Todd, 1967), p. 259. Though the terminology was not in use at the time, Lonergan’s position would now, I think, be best described as “postmodern”, for the meaning of “modernity” has changed.
