Out of Control American Neo-Trads.

WHAT A DISGRACE!

Thankfully we now have a situation where decent and  right minded English traditionalists (and now even Polish and French traditionalists) are calling out the rather unsavoury and disgraceful online behaviour of faux American 'trad' lay leaders, not to mention their followers. What an unmitegated omni-shambles these 'yanks' have caused for the traditional movement worldwide with their incessant arguing. Some leaders, and their increasingly unbalanced followers, are now even following the lead of the Leftists and cancelling decent Traditional Catholics whom they do not deem to come up to their high donatistic standards. Every other country now has to suffer at their hands. Have they no shame? A whole host of 'two bit' commentators seem to think they have some gnostic knowledge that they wish to share, and have sullied the good work that was accomplished. Their egos are beyond belief and out of control. 

Nn

                                  Pathetic! 

Fifty years of hard won victories was due, not to these armchair warriors but thanks to hard working traditionalists, behind the scenes, and on the ground, who toiled to bring back the Mass of Ages. Thanks to decent old school traditionalists such as Evelyn Waugh, Sir Arnold Lunn, and Hugh Ross Williamson, who all helped found the Latin Mass Society of England and Wales, and good humoured people like Fr. Hugh Thwaites and Michael Davies; and many hard working lay people actually putting hard work in on the ground (globally, and not just England) a valiant battle was won, and then Summorum Pontificum came about. Let us not forget the work of Una Voce in all of this. 

These loud mouthed, uncouth Americans have undone the lot of it. Yes, by all means, the usual suspects at the Vatican wanted the TLM sidelined, but these trouble causes handed victory to them on a plate. They went into an unnecessary and open public war with the Vatican (which they could never win), and outright lost, and now we all have to pay the price for their petulance, due to the newly imposed TC restrictions . The battle was already being patiently won, but they have now put us back possibly another three or even four decades. For 50 years the modus operandi of those working on the ground had been to be 'as cunning as foxes and as gentle as doves', to quote scripture. A sterling job was done by all, and accomplished with great patience, fortitude, and determination. These loud mouthed uncouth yobs came along and spoiled it for the rest of us by stirring up a hornets nest. It is truly disgusting, and a growing number of Catholics have had enough of it. Their panchant for the heresies of Americanism, gnosticism, and donatism is literally getting beyond the pale. Facebook and Twitter have become the cess pits of some twisted cyber-tradition, and right minded Catholic traditionalists have had enough of these tawdry self appointed despots. Go away, stop annoying decent people, and leave the real traditional community in peace. Neo-tradism is nothing to do with tradition. 

An unnecessary and wreckless act. 

In the true spiritual life, we discover that the faults that we call out in others are often our own faults. Pope Francis and Archbishop Roache have made poor choices, but the mischief of  all the self appointed online armchair warriors is no different to that of the Vatican officials that cancelled our hard won rights to the Latin Mass. Their ignorance and lack of prudence is just as damaging as that of certain prelates at the Vatican. If you are upset about the current situation concerning the Latin Mass, then there is more than one place to look for the blame in all of this.

RICHARD COLLINS REQUIESCAT IN PACE

RICHARD COLLINS 
REQUIESCAT IN PACE
Richard Collins the author of the Linen on the Hedgerow, as you are probably already aware as sadly passed away.

Like others, I think he was an wonderful man. 
Anyone who has read his blog can testify that he was devout, loyal to the Church and Her teachings, he was a defender of the One True Faith, and he had a great sense of humour (even with the knowledge that we are knee-deep in a crisis in the Church today). He certainly kept me going with a cheery word, and was always ready to answer my questions when organising Latin Masses. He also gave us his heart felt support, with the work we are doing in Lincolnshire, to return the authentic Catholic Faith, in this spiritually barren part of the world. 

Last Thursday, a final Latin Mass was said at Richard's bedside. He died fortified by all the rites of Holy Mother Church, and his final moments were accompanied by his family praying the holy Rosary.

Please pray for the repose of his eternal soul and for his family.

THE CATECHISM OF POPE PIUS X & ON MODERNISM

THE CATECHISM OF POPE PIUS X


Q: Where are the members of the Church to be found?

A: The members of the Church are found partly in heaven, forming the Church Triumphant; partly in purgatory, forming the Church Suffering; partly on earth, forming the Church Militant.

Pope Pius X On Modernism




Despite a relatively hard reputation Pope Pius X was in reality an extremely kind man, and Pope, who was born poor and who said that he wanted to "die poor". The video contains a talk concerning Pope Pius X and modernism.

PENTECOST

PENTECOST

'Moments ago these were frightened men who gathered only behind locked doors, in secrecy. They were huddled together in fear. But now they go forth to the crowds and boldly proclaim Christ. They have gone from fear to faith, from cowardice to courage, from terror to testimony'.

THE CROWNING OF MARY QUEEN OF HEAVEN

THE CROWNING OF MARY
QUEEN OF HEAVEN

By his encyclical Ad Caeli Reginam, Pope Pius XII, recognising traditional precedents, proclaimed the "Queenship of Mary". While May devotions may differ in various countries, the Marian title Queen of May exists identically in several countries as manifested in Marian songs such as:


Hail Virgin, dearest Mary! Our lovely Queen of May! O spotless, blessed Lady, Our lovely Queen of May. Your children, humbly bending, Surround your shrine ... 

O Mary we crown thee with blossoms today!
Queen of the Angels and Queen of the May.
O Mary we crown thee with blossoms today,
Queen of the Angels and Queen of the May.
