Why Can’t I Be a Good Trad?

The rumors swirling – nearly certainly true at this point – of the realization of a demonic plot, long in the making, to completely kill the Latin Mass and bury those who worship according to her rites have reached a dizzying fever pitch. Just today, the Remnant ran a piece by Diane Montagna claiming that the forthcoming document to be shat out by whatever Roman dicastery is currently jockeying to be the antipope’s sphincter of the month will include a prohibition of ever celebrating the vetus ordo on any Sunday of the year. That’s right, they will try to kill our spirit. They will also apparently try to enshrine the Novus Ordo Mass as “henceforth, the only official rite of the Latin Church.”

I’m sorry, what?

I couldn’t quite follow as I was sopping up the gin from the front of my shirt.

Seems to me another pope wrote something similar (yet even more forceful) a few hundred years ago in a little document called Quo Primum. Here it is again for those who’ve forgotten:

“We grant and concede in perpetuity that, for the chanting or reading of the Mass in any church whatsoever, this Missal is hereafter to be followed absolutely, without any scruple of conscience or fear of incurring any penalty, judgment, or censure, and may freely and lawfully be used. Nor are superiors, administrators, canons, chaplains, and other secular priests, or religious, of whatever title designated, obliged to celebrate the Mass otherwise than as enjoined by Us.”

I’m through with trying to figure out why they hate us. It’s obvious. The question I ask instead is this.

Why can’t I simply be a good trad?

If I had a nickel for every time Bergoglio has stumbled before a microphone or spoken with an atheist editor and stated that one needn’t be Catholic in any way, shape, or form to get to heaven… He has proclaimed that if one is Pentecostal (or Lutheran, Muslim, whatever) he should remain outside the Church because God apparently wanted him that way. Remember his late friend, “Bishop” Tony Palmer? What about the Lutheran woman he told should not convert but should instead receive Holy Communion with her Catholic husband? These people apparently need to remain as good whatever-the-hell-they-are’s and need never consider entering into the Mystical Body of Christ, the One, Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic Church.

Why them and not me?

Why can’t I be a good trad?

Isn’t that what God wants of me? Can’t I be what I desire to be and be good for the Church?

We all know the answer to this one too. You can’t be a good trad because tradition is at odds with the ape-ish freakshow they’re running out of Rome these days. Notice, they never go after anyone but the trads. Trads must be crushed. So if I simply didn’t call myself a Catholic, they wouldn’t care if I followed the heretical whims of my heart (providing I was “nice” to people and/or a sodomite). Well duh. That’s because they aren’t in the business of saving souls. But the ones who are serious about saving their own souls and the souls of their families are those for whom he/they reserve their greatest invective.

An Apostolic Constitution to break the spirit of an admittedly miniscule percentage of the Catholic populace…

Tomorrow I will be presenting a little bit more about how this document will be received.
