"If anyone is so bold as to assert that there exists nothing besides matter: let him be anathema." So I'm afraid science "is an anathema" to the RCC

Why do you think this sentence is contradictory to science? Surely many things exist that are not matter, what about beauty, joy, love, sadness, anger, etc etc? These may not exist independently of material things (and in particular rational beings i.e. man) but in themselves they are not matter.
