Modernist or Traditionalist


Would you consider yourself a modernist Catholic like our Pope or traditionalist?


I consider myself a Roman Catholic. Period.


Why try to label and divide? Why not “just” be Catholic?

Hi, I’m a Catholic, and I have…I have…preferences. :disappointed_relieved::sob:


We’re all traditional in the sense that we all want to keep what is good and true and important… and we’re all sort of modern, in the sense that if something isn’t working for the good of the Church, we’re open to improving it. Basically, we generally all want unity and not division, though some people will try to push for extremes on both sides.


Modernist??? Modernism is heresy, pure and simple! Pope St. Pius X called Modernism “the synthesis of all heresies.” in his encyclical Pascendi Dominici Gregis.


there is really no such thing as modernist or traditionalist. The catholic church is based on sacred scripture and sacred tradition

The argument about modernist or traditionalist is another wedge , another tactic to divide the church.
