When I first started practicing Catholicism, I struggled with the issue of birth control. I totally didn’t get it. I prayed, etc., And after a while, J came to understand it.
I also went through a period of being attracted to a strong traditionalism. And it was really bad for my spiritual life. Certain aspects are good: different people are attracted to different forms of worshipnd of course the Church includes many types of spirituality: Franciscan, Benedictine, Ignatian, and so on. However, the strong traditionalists and the group’s which a separated from the Church (conclacists and sexevacantists) are focused on the “wrongs of the NO church” and do not offer anything like the fullness of the Faith we find in the Catholic Church.
While I have no problem with the Latin Mass, consideration of Church history shows the Church moving back and forth like a pendulum. Being comprised of human beings, there is always movement, and sometimes that movement is in the wrong direction.
There were actual problems which needed to be addressed when V2 was convened, but the implementation of some of the suggestions in the documents was extreme in the opposite direction. We may not like the extreme that some priests go to to accept same-sexarriage, but the pre-V2 victorian-style lack of Mercy regarding unwed pregnancy was also an extreme.
So why did I bring up my difficulties with birth control at the beginning of this post? Because it was a difficulty which I faced. I later faced a difficulty with attraction to a problematical view of the Church, which I should have recognized and treated as the same type of problem.
The devil will use anything to get us to separate ourselves from God, even something that seems good on the outside.
If you feel drawn to the Latin Mass, go, but be careful not to get in with people who have a narrow focus: Catholicism is broad and offers so much that you don’t want to lose!
