Pope Pius XI delivers an address to ecclesiastical assistants of Catholic Action in which he argues that Catholicism is opposed to racism, nationalism, and similarly exclusivist ideologies.

Pope Pius XI says:

"Catholic means universal, not racist, nationalist, separatist; no, catholic. And it is thus that Catholic Action must be, it must be inspired by this spirit, because there is something one might say is more and better even than faith: the spirit of faith; in the same way, alas, there is something much worse than one or another formula of racism and nationalism: the spirit that dictates them."
