I recommend reading it, and this is not a review of it. But in reading it certain things occurred to me. It is the position of the Traditian Order that we are about promoting the whole faith, and that anything that happened at Vatican II is just the smallest part of that, and almost certainly not the best of it (if its mission was to bring people into the Church from the surrounding culture, it was, after all, a dismal failure). For that reason we welcome those who love the traditional Catholic faith, and focus on tradition, despite the fact that few of us are SSPX or sedevacantists (actually I’m not certain if any of us are at the moment). As a result, sometimes people, even members, feel that our tone is against Vatican II, but other than the liturgical reforms and the subsequent replacement of Latin with the vernacular, we are not. We simply take no position on the matter. We are a lay apostolate, in no way connected with the leadership of the Church, and choose to focus on what we have made our mission: tradition.
It does not seem, though, that the modernists (See Am I A Modernist?), progressives and the lavender mafia within the Church have taken such a balanced position. If you listen to what they reference, how they talk, what they emphasize and what they build their arguments on, it seems that to them the Church itself was born in the mid-1960s with little to speak of before then. Moreover, if you listen carefully, some, perhaps many, seem to have a disdain for tradition–almost as if it is their personal cause to wipe it out.
A true treatment of this topic would take endless pages to research and cite, and I do not have the desire to take it that far. But I do invite you to listen more carefully, read a bit more between the lines, when you follow the modern leaders of the Church. See if they cite to the Church fathers, to the Bible, to Jesus at any length, or is it almost always Vatican II? What is it about their Church’s tradition that they don’t like? What are they trying *not* to say. I suspect that if you pay attention and ponder all of this, you will come to embrace Church tradition all the more, as we do here in the Traditian Order.
