I am not a big fan of the NO Mass, and I love and prefer the Latin Mass.
I am not a Canon Lawyer.
As to the title of my thread, need I remind everyone that part of our Catholic Faith is having faith that the Holy Spirit guides the Church!! Yes, we have FAITH in this mystery, that a church, seemingly “run” by men, has a supernatural hand on it’s direction.
Men, liberal men, have undermined the Church. One may say that this Pope is “too liberal”, because he accepts this and that and won’t accept so-n-so, etc. etc. Maybe that is true, but I think our problems are NOT with our Pope, but our renegade Bishops (left and right of our Pope, thank you!) and the priests they let run around like misbehaving children.
MEN are to fault for the ABUSES of our liturgy and the horrible religious education of our laity.
BUT NOT THE HOLY SPIRIT!! It is NEVER Wrong!!
How many SSPXers want to align themselves with King Henry VIII?? With Luther?? Instead of working WITHIN the Church to evangelize the faithful, you want to go off and be protestant???Private Revelation?? Relativism?? YOU know more than the Pope, decendant to the Chair of Peter, the head of THE One, Holy, Apostolic Church guided by the Holy Spirit HIMSELF???
Again, I prefer that Latin Mass. It feels more Catholic to me. BUT, that is a preference. The Mass said in a village in Africa less Catholic?? How 'bout in a small basement in China?? Hardly.
The Holy Spirit knows more than we do.
