Why not grab a dictionary (or bring one up in a different tab), look them up, and zone in?
You need the secret decoder ring.
right on point!
it's high time this was said. it should be proclaimed from every pulpit where the TLM is offered - again and again until the points raised penetrate their obstinate skulls.
unless and until this message is taken to heart the traditionalist movement will remain spiritually sick and prone to pride, error, and serious sins like those described in this sermon.
the fear and self-isolation are particularly grave. the few times i go to trad masses the cliquish people there eye me with fear and suspicion. i smile back and they either glare or avert their eyes. the isolation and family dysfunction take a terrible toll on kids. you see many kids raised in trad families either going wild or becoming seriously withdrawn and submissive when they get older. (you also see plenty who grow up to be fine devout people.)
I also like this sermon by Fr. Ripperger. Scroll down to the External square and chose Catholic Tradition and the Liturgy. It is wonderful.
