Cuts through all the lies and gives clarity to what Pope Francis and company are doing to the Church and Christ's people.
People throw labels like traditionalists and liberals to veil what they are really doing.
People who refer to themselves as liberal really mean they break Commandments without remorse. The Deposit of Faith and the Sacraments are meaningless to them as the guiding force that supplies right judgment and Sanctifying Grace. When Christ said His Sacrifice and Death was a gift that would send the Paraclete that defines Truth and salvation, they believe Christ meant them! When they want to break Commandments, they tempt the people they claim to love to smoke their crack pipes. The only thing they won't tolerate is someone who declines their offer to feast on forbidden fruit.
I never took a shine to the term "tradionalist". It undermines the reasons we flee the heresy and mammon seahag centered liturgies. It's not the right word for people who wanted t to go to Mass to mystically connect to God, His Mother, Angels and Saints, who seek to give Christ the very best, who need priests that teach and help us to live every day in a State of Grace. We are actually just Roman Catholics. The people who refer to us as "traditionalists" are people who come to Church for a myriad of other reasons and they resent hearing and seeing Roman Catholicism. What they are actually doing is using the term "traditionalists" to caricature our religion as antiquated. The pope is a big user of this farcical wordsmything to usher in his agenda and has even gone so far as to caricature the practice of Roman Catholicism as mental illness.
It is also not helpful that the people who bought into the heresies and blasphemies of SSPX call themselves "traditionalists".
Fr R's piece casts a deep net into theology and history but it is well worth taking the time to read and process.
