I enjoy researching to study the process into the development that summarized the implementation of the current teaching, so much as it is revealed through Church approved channels. The development is also a wonderful unfolding of a truth.The Church is pleased that I do so. To categorize my position on the forum I think Fr. Ripperger comes closest to describing my traditional character in this way.
“…For this reason, the fundamental difference between neoconservatives and traditionalists is that the neoconservative looks at the past through the eyes of the present while the traditionalist looks at the present through the eyes of the past. Historically, the mens ecclesiae or mind of the Church was expressed through the extrinsic tradition. That is to say that the Church, since it receives both its teaching from the past and the labor of the saints and previous Magisterium by tradition, always looked at the present through the eyes of the past. In this, she looked at the present not as man under the influence of modern philosophy looked at the present, but through the eyes of her Lord Who gave her His teaching when He was on earth (i.e., in the past). Only at the time of Christ was it possible to look authentically at the past through what was then the eyes of the present, since Christ was the fulfillment of the past. But once the work of Christ became part of history and He ascended into heaven, we must always look back to Christ and to our tradition for an authentic understanding of the present…”
If I were to find an inconsistency, or not understand a point, I would automatically assume I am in error. My position now becomes a personal one of self correction, all the while carrying out my roll as outlined in the new teaching just promulgated.
