Here is what Fr. Adrian Fortescue, author of The Ceremonies of the Roman Rite Described and The Early Papacy (a defense of Catholic teaching on the papacy) wrote to a priest friend traveling to Rome in 1920:

Quote:“By the way, will you give a message from me to the Roman Ordinary? Tell him to look after his own diocese and not to write any more Encyclicals. Also, that there were twelve apostles and that all bishops are their successors. Also, to read the works of St Paul, also to open his front door and walk out, also that the faith handed  to our fathers is more important than the Sacred Heart or certain alleged happenings at Lourdes.”
