I have never found Trads to be into anything mystical. They pray, yes. Rosaries, LOH, whatever. But mysticism? Cloud of Unknowing? Heaven forbid!
Jesus said to feed and clothe and house the less fortunate. He said Mary chose the better part. That's charity and mysticism.
Trads like parameters, which is fine, but they just can't seem to stand the thought that everyone isn't coloring inside the same lines.
The rest of us are still looking for the crayons.
I enjoyed reading your post. As a traditionalist or Tradical lol myself in reading your comments I think you hit the nail right on the head.

It dirves me crazy going to NO mass alter girls bobbytail bouncing to and fro dressed up like a priest,no alter rails,an amry of Eucharistic ministers,no distinction between the sanctuary and the nave (the alter rail served more than one purpose) the high alter is all but gone,the tabernacle in and out of the sanctuary,people throwing around the orans posture all the while they have no clue in what they are doing or even why they use it.Eucharistic Ministers blessing the small children, Clown Masses,Clapping, People grabbing at you to hold their hand instead of respecting your right not to have to. etc...
