As a "Latin-rite" Catholic I find this all very sad and disheartening. This is one of the reasons I had initiated my inquiries here regarding a move to the Orthodox, which I decided was not the way for me to proceed in my own attempt to find the divine.
Indeed, my church seems stuck in some 1970's guitar strumming hippie love fest. The current Pope seems to have very real contempt for those of his flock who love tradition, whom he incorrectly describes as "palagians" ( he should study his heresies before spouting off). He seems to belittle and laugh at us on a regular basis. I am not a sedecavantist. That said, it seems to me that the Pope would be quite happy if the traditionalist would all just go away, join the SSPX, and leave him and the church alone to become some sort of hippy-dippy "social justice" NGO.
HE IS A JESUIT.
Quite frankly I am surprised that anyone is surprised by this. Add on top of this the US bishops confusion of socialism with Christian charity, aka "Liberation Theology" and it makes my head hurt.
I am really tired of it all. The Neocats are welcomed into the church, the traditionalist derided. Why?
What do they fear from 1500 years of liturgical tradition? I don't understand, but then I am not an enlightened leader of the church.
All I can do at this point is to try to not loose my temper, and my soul along with it. I remain faithful to the teachings of the Church. It's leaders come and go. As long as I can access the sacraments, my soul is mine to loose, not the Pope's.
