This Anti-Modernist oath is no longer required before becoming a priest or Bishop. If it were, there would be even fewer ordinations than there are. In effect, the concept of faith has been falsified and many people without any wrong intention let themselves be influences by modernism. That is why they are ready to believe that all religions save. If each man’s faith is according to his conscience - if it is conscience that produces faith - then there is no reason to believe that one faith saves any better than another, so long as conscience is directed towards God. We read statements of these sort in a document from the French Bishops' Catechetical Commission: "truth is not something received, ready-made, but something that develops."
