I find the orthodoxy of the schismatic churches following the Society of Pope Pius X priests so tempting. Now it’s not tempting enough for me to leave 'cause I have questions like, “If they’re so orthodox how can they reject the authority of the pope?” However, I find it sad that the same kind of reverance and continuity is so hard to find in the Catholic church. The church in the U.S. seems so mixed up and confused trying so hard to entertain, please, and not offend.
I have friends that have begun attending these churches and say they feel a holiness which they couldn’t feel in the Catholic church. Their teenagers are now much more attentive in mass. The family has become a stronger “Catholic” family. In other words, they are just a strong and holy family which they weren’t before.
I long for the conservative church which I grew up with & have a difficult time finding. Any suggestions? Anyone else out there feeling the same?
