Pope St Pius X explains what loving the Pope really entails.
#16
Let's not forget that St. Pius X never dreamed that the papacy itself would fall to Modernism. St. Pius X never could have imagined that the heresy of Modernism he fought so hard to defeat during his pontificate, would ever be adopted by future Popes.

That was the weakness of the post Vatican I Church. They were not intellectually prepared for the emergence of bad Popes. With Papal Infallibility and the Papal office reaching its highest levels of respect and deference after Vatican I, no one except maybe Cardinal Newman saw the danger of this backfiring when bad Popes emerged. The Church was then not prepared to defend the faith in the confusion of a papal idolatry that emerged because Papal Infallibility has never been adequately explained since Vatican I.
