@mikel What's the citation for that? I'm especially interested in the phrase "liberal Catholics", which seems more of a recent word. Many memes are bogus (though the thought behind this one is reasonable enough), so please direct me to the source.

@peepingThomist the quote is referenced a number of places, including at catholicism.org/piusx.html

which says it's from his first pastoral letter tp the Venetians. I can't find the letter online, but one source says the letter (or at least parts of it) is found in

Saint Pius X, The New Italian Life Of The Saint, by Fr. Hieronymo Dal-Gal, translated and adapted by Rev. Thomas F. Murray, M.A., fourth revised impression, published by M. H. Gill and Son Ltd., 50 Upper O'Connell Street, 1954
