I’m not sure if anyone’s read this. But I quite agree. I’ve completely stopped going to church altogether because of this(There is barely any Latin Mass around here). I see no connection with the modern Catholic Church and the traditional Catholic Church; except Vatican II and the Pope says so.
How does the modern Catholic Church expect to bring men into it with so much “feminization” going on?
I was reading up on St. Martin of Tours and on the article there is a section called “Revival of the popular devotion to St. Martin in the Third Republic”. On it it states:
The popularity of devotion to St Martin among men is significant because historical evidence shows that “feminization” had affected French Catholicism in the nineteenth century. During the nineteenth century Frenchmen influenced by secularism, agnosticism, and anti-clericalism deserted the church in great numbers. Martin was a man’s saint and the devotion to him was an exception to this trend. For men serving in the military, Martin of Tours was presented by the Catholic Right as the masculine model of principled behavior. He was a brave fighter, knew his obligation to the poor, shared his goods, performed his required military service, followed legitimate orders, and respected secular authority.
