The Aims of INSTAURARE
The aims of the journal are openly stated in the “manifesto”, which is dated 1st May 1971: “to fight against any culpable toleration or transition in matter of faith and morals, in order to claim the need to re-establish - also in the civic sphere - the religious values, which are foundation and warranty for the civil community itself; [furthermore,] to fight against challenges of the rationalistic critique, which denies any transcendence”.
INSTAURARE omnia in Christo, thus, supports the claim that one can speak about a juridical and political order only if this is founded on natural law (Ten Commandments), which cannot be dispensed if the common good has to be attained.
In this way, the journal was and still is in open contrast with the hegemonic liberal culture, which supports indifferentism, and, before that, with Marxist culture, which, in the Seventies of last Century, seemed to be fated to triumph. INSTAURARE is also in open contrast with modernist “Catholic” culture, both on the political and the theological level. Indeed, it had to take position also on the dogmatic-religious level. It openly criticised the rationalistic critique, which, on the biblical and ecclesiastical level, is supported as a re-actualisation of modernism (the synthesis of all heresies, according to Piu X's definition) by the prevailing contemporary “Catholic” culture.
Unlike other Anti-modernist Catholic movements and associations, INSTAURARE does not take any historical time as a model; it judges positive support to so called “lesser evils” to be an error; it has never hesitated on the interpretation of the Second Vatican Council, which it has always considered to be in continuity with Catholic Tradition.
