Leo realized that the errors which he sought to correct were errors stemming from the philosophical perversions of the day and that to combat those errors it would be necessary to lay a solid foundation.
Leo further separated himself from those who would tie the Church to one form of government ("the right to rule is not necessarily, however, tied to one special form of government"), thus alienating both the extreme monarchists and the disciples of Lamennais.

 Catholic Culture : Document Library : Pope Leo XIII's Message to America
The ruling of Pope Leo XIII was substantially identical with the prescription of the Code: "Let Catholics take care not to have debates or conferences, particularly of a public nature, with non-Catholics, without the permission of the Holy See or, if the case is urgent, of the local Ordinary".
It is true, recent Popes, particularly our present Sovereign Pontiff, have invited the co-operation of non-Catholics with Catholics in restoring peace among the nations, in eradicating social and economic evils, in combatting the forces of materialism and godlessness, in upholding the principles of morality.
Catholics of present-day America can profitably find in the apostolic letter of Leo XIII a reminder of the care they must exercise lest their faith suffer from the spirit of religious indifferentism that is so prevalent in our land today.

 Modern History Sourcebook: Archbishops of England: Reply to Leo XIII
Whatever the Pope may answer, it is clear enough that we cannot everywhere insist very strictly on that doctrine about a fixed form and matter; inasmuch as all Sacraments of the Church, except Baptism, would in that way be rendered uncertain.
The argument however which the Pope appears to consider of chief importance and stability is not that which concerns the addition of any words to our form, but that which lays to our charge the removal of certain acts and prayers from the rest of the rite.
Pope Leo demands a form unknown to previous Bishops of Rome, and an intention which is defective in the catechisms of the Oriental Church.
