In all the corporeal beings, the formal principle is material. This is eminently true of the Body of the Universe. On Day One of Creation Week – the First Week of the World – God created the Heavens and the Earth – Water and Light. These elemental beings constitute the Material Body of the Universe whose formal principle gives mass, i.e., quantity (and thus all qualities) – to the elements, particles, etc – and arranges all things in a spherical and hierarchical order – something the modern scientist utterly misses.
Back to the angels and the letters of Gemma Galgani, locked in a drawer of a chest of drawers.
All man-made things are accidental forms of some original substance – the proto-type of which was created during the Six Days of Creation Week. Thus, the wooden chest of drawers in which Gemma Galgani’s letter was locked, was originally the substantial form of a kind of plant, created on Day Three. The wood of the chest was an accidental form of the original plant kind/substantial form. And it was wholly material in nature – therefore particulate and quantitative. These quantities giving rise to all the other properties of the wood, now dead or rather inanimate material. Many confuse substance with state of matter. Therefore, because wood, and all artifacts made therewith, is a solid, many believe it must be a substance. But physical analysis reveals an atomic structure in which the atoms are very densely packed together, giving rise to hardness, color and all other qualities of the various types of wood. But however hard the wood, it is still atomically porous and therefore penetrable. And it is this power of penetrating matter that the angel possesses. The miraculous nature of the angel’s act of retrieving the letter from the locked drawer lies in the fact that he destroyed nothing in the process. Thus the angelic powers over material forms are truly miraculous – even though they can be explained up to a certain point. And the angelic powers can never reach to the substantial form of any created being in order to change it. This is metaphysically and theologically impossible – and herein lies the absolute impossibility of the so-called theory or “law” of evolution. This cosmic/terrestrial evolution is Lucifer’s masterpiece, his greatest and most successful lie. Pope St. Pius the X called it Modernism and the “synthesis”or compendium of all heresies.
It is truly the greatest hoax ever perpetrated upon the church and the world - all in the name of science. But there is true science, knowledge of things in their causes, as Aristotle defined it. And then there is a false science, which is really not science at all – but ideology. Man-invented or imagined ideas imposed upon reality and passing for science. This is what evolution is – along with all the other false ideologies that the modernist heresy has spawned. In Pope St. Pius the X’s 1907 encyclical Pascendi, he defined modernism – as comprising three false philosophies. One being Agnosticism, the second being Immanentism, and the third – their “principal doctrine” – the “law”of evolution by which everything must change or die. And it was this false “law” of evolution that inspired, motivated and permeated all the doctrines of the Second Vatican Council.
