St. Pius V promugated formal condemnation of homosexual behaviour by the clergy.


In  the Constitution Cum primum of April 1, 1566, St. Pius V calls the vice against nature one of the offenses that are most repugnant to God and raise His wrath. 

“Having determined to do away with everything that may in some way offend the Divine Majesty, we resolve to punish, above all and without indulgence, those things which, by the authority of the Sacred Scriptures or by most grievous examples, are more repugnant to God than any others and raise His wrath: that is, negligence in divine worship, ruinous simony, the crime of blasphemy, and the execrable libidinous vice against nature. For such faults peoples and nations are scourged by God Who, according to His just condemnation, sends catastrophes, wars, famine, and pestilence ... and if he is a cleric, he will be subject to the same punishment after having been stripped of all his degrees [of ecclesiastical dignity].” 

Romans 1:32 Though they know God’s decree that those who do such things deserve to die, they not only do them but approve those who practice them.


Saint Pius V pray for us.
