On a lighter note, Where do you score in regards to your Faith

I found this as I was searching for the meaning of radical traditionalist. While the term may have negative connotations, I kind of like it. Our Blessed Lord calls us to be radical, we are called to take up our crosses daily and follow him. In the world we live in, this is a very radical concept and a hard one to follow. Here is a cool website I found and the results I got.

You scored as Traditional Catholic.

You look at the great piety and holiness of the Church before the Second Vatican Council and the decay of belief and practice since then, and see that much of the decline is due to failed reforms based on the “Spirit of the Council”. You regret the loss of vast numbers of Religious and Ordained clergy and the widely diverging celebrations of the Mass of Pope Paul VI, which often don’t even seem to be Catholic anymore. You are helping to rebuild this past culture in one of the many new Traditional Latin Mass communities or attend Eastern Catholic Divine Liturgy. You seek refuge from the world of pornography, recreational drugs, violence, and materialism. You are an articulate, confident, committed, and intelligent Catholic. But do you support legitimate reform of the Church, and are you willing to submit to the directives of the Second Vatican Council? Will you cooperate responsibly with others who are not part of the Traditional community? saint-louis.blogspot.com - Rome of the West

It asks a few questions there at the end that I will answer here.

But do you support legitimate reform of the Church, and are you willing to submit to the directives of the Second Vatican Council?

The key word here is legitimate. What needed reforming? There are good things that came out of the Council, there are also not so good things that are done in the name of the Council. I would like to see those not so good things changed.

Will you cooperate responsibly with others who are not part of the Traditional community?

It depends on the motives of the others I am to cooperate with. If their motives are good and Holy, then yes. If they have an obvious agenda other than supporting the Church, then absolutely not.[Before anyone gets upset, please read the key words there, obvious and agenda]

I scored as a Traditional Catholic too.
But I think this quiz is pretty silly - so many different things thrown together which are more dependent on personality than views on religion…

I won’t even take the quiz. While I don’t agree with the leftists in the Church who carried Vatican II too far I do as a Catholic accept all the Councils of the Church. I choose not to label myself as anything but Roman Catholic.

:thumbsup:

But remember, this is just a game…

I think it does a pretty decent job. It was just about right on the money for me. Things do change as people perceptions change. Ones personality is important for this as I believe that has a lot to do with what you believe and how you put that belief into action.

I tend to come off, as you have seen, as maybe arrogant, intolerant or I may even dare say, a knowitall. I am none of these, however, I will take a firm stand on the Truth and when I don’t waver even the slightest people seem to be offended. As for the intolerance, I love all, but I will not sugar coat anything. Let your yea be yea and your nay be nay. I know a little about a lot of things and when I have a question, I know where to look. I own both the Roman Catechism[The Catechism of the Council of Trent] and the CCC. I own the Douay Rheims Bible, the Ignatius RSV-CE 2nd edition, and until I can get rid of it, the NAB. I read the works of St. John of the Cross and St. Teresa of Avila as well as Thomas Merton[Great writer, BTW] My confirmation name is Benedict. I tell all of this as a little insight into who I am and maybe why I say things the way I do. Above all I do, all I am, I desire nothing more than to serve almighty God. Knowing that there are only two roads, two destinations depending on our lives, I choose to walk the narrow road, to suffer the hardships, uncomforts of life and by the grace and mercy of God, I will spend eternity with Christ and his Blessed Mother.

:blessyou:

I have chosen my own confimation name after St Margaret of Hungary (“Margit” in Hungarian), a Dominican nun of the 13th century, a great praying saint, mystic, committed to simple steadfast faith, extreme poverty, humility, and charity. I am a poor imitator of her holy life - yet I am much inclined to follow in her steps of simplicity, and avoid unnecessary arguments. That’s why arguing about Latin or English masses gets on my nerves sometimes. Not to mention the fact that I really prefer a Hungarian mass… :rolleyes:

I am studying the Reformation era - and what I learn from that is that the stronger the unity of the Church is in the inside, the more resistant she will be to outer attacks.
God bless!

Traditional Catholic. But, then I have known this for many years.:wink:

You scored as Neo-Conservative Catholic.

You see that the government of the United States was originally founded on recognizably Catholic natural law principles and reason in the tradition of Saint Thomas Aquinas, and the freedom of religion acknowledged in the Constitution has allowed Catholicism to flourish in this largely Protestant country. You recognize that the American system of government, even with its faults, is the most moral social order developed in history. You are committed to being a Catholic active in society. Like the Liberal Catholic, your views might be too determined by American culture, and you may uncritically accept many theories that may be harmful to yourself and society; instead you may need rediscover traditional Catholic teaching. You should emphasize the love of your neighbor, especially love for the poor, in your everyday business dealings. saint-louis.blogspot.com - Rome of the West

I took this a few days ago. I see it was created by the author of Rome of the West Blog out of St. Louis, MO.

Wanna guess how I scored???

My favorite question in the quiz:

“I love to get drunk and get it on!”

Although getting drunk is without question a mortal sin, it should be remembered of St. Thomas Aquinas’ dictum that one could drink ad usque hilaritatem—“to the point of hilarity.”

It would make logical sense this question would impact ones score negatively, but if the question read “I love to drink to the point of hilarity and get it on with my lawfully wedded wife” then said question should reflect a very traditional view.

It was a very enjoyable quiz.

You scored as New Catholic.

The years following the Second Vatican Council was a time of collapse of the Catholic faith and its traditions. But you are a young person who has rediscovered this lost faith, probably due to the evangelization of Pope John Paul II. You are enthusiastic, refreshing, and somewhat traditional, and you may be considering a vocation to the priesthood or religious life. You reject relativism and the decline in society that you see among your peers. You are seen as being good for the Church. A possible problem is that you may have a too narrow a view of orthodoxy, and anyway, you are still a youth and not yet mature in your faith. saint-louis.blogspot.com - Rome of the West

Wow… actually, it’s pretty accurate! :blush:

I scored as “Traditional Catholic”!!!

:extrahappy:

I sure hope it was “Traditional Catholic”!

:highprayer:

Is the Pope Catholic?? :stuck_out_tongue:

Whew! Now I can rest easy.

:yup:

I scored equally as a “New” Catholic and a “Traditional” Catholic, and I am pretty close to being a “radical” Catholic- and I have no clue what any of these categories mean :whacky: EDIT: I just did a google search and it seems that “radical” Catholic is similiar to being a “Liberal” Catholic (as if there was such a thing) so now I am even more confused; how can I be a traditionalist and a radical at the same rate. My head is going to explode! :eek: :stuck_out_tongue:

I think if you answer yes to “does the Pope rock?” and that you just discovered the Catholic faith has some really cool things, then it places you as a New Catholic

Hah, I did rate the rock-abilities of the Pope highly, though I didn’t say that I just discovered the faith has some really cool things- I’ve known that for a long time.

I am more confused as to what a “radical Catholic” is- especially after searching google, it seems to be one who is dissident- so how am I so close to being both a traditionalist and radical?
