These are good questions.
The one I have a problem with, respectfully, is the above one posted by Mary. It assumes that all traditional church attendees DO NOT follow Pope Francis, and there is not necessarily a divide there. It stereotypes people too readily and that is not necessarily the truth. Please be more careful how you phrase questions in the future. This could start up another one of the not-so-nice threads that have been on the forums lately.
Roanna, this is exactly what I meant in my post - Nothing like this was implied and yet people have taken that it was - The question was to ask how open are the two people involved to able to compromise on their beliefs in the Traditional Mass vs. the Present Mass. I have been here a long time and have seen many posts in regards to the Traditional Mass vs the current Mass and people's belief. I am not stating one person is right or wrong or what they truly believe, I am talking about individual relationships and where each is coming. It is same thing as I wrote, someone can write they are 7/7 and in union with the papacy on faith and morals but when it comes to practicing it it is another story.
Rosanna it is not stereotyping either Traditional or those following the Novo Ordo (If I stated this correctly and if I didn't, I did not write it sothat I would offend anyone.) I could not remember the exact initials but Bishop LeFebvre broke away from the papacy. So before anyone judges me and stereotypes what I wrote, they should look at it in the broader sense of what it was intended for. This is a perfect example of what kind happen when you are dating someone and misjudging a person's comments. Anyone who knows me on the forums, knows that I take each person individually and the only thing that concerns me is that I follow the Church, I do not judge anyone else. I leave that to God.
DISCLAIMER: My post is meant on an individual basis in regards to each person and their views in regarding relationships leading to marriage and how they compromise. It is not intending that anyone specific person is not following the Church but only from my observation of what has been written by so many on these forum and from peronal experience. If I offended anyone I apoloize - I know that many Traditional Cathlics are in unity with the papcy. I also know some are not, just as some Novo Ordo are in union and some are not.
