I belong to a faith group that meets once a month. Topics for discussion are chosen by the host couple and vary from newsworthy (ie St. Stans controversy) to sacramental (ie, meaning of Reconcilliation) to offbeat (ie. exorcism). We are fortunate to have a priest that joins us.
The April meeting is at our house and I thought a discussion of what I describe as “radical-traditionalism” would be interesting. Before this forum, I was only familiar with the schism in general terms but have found the various “discussions” here to be interesting and thought others might like to know more.
What I need is some reference materials to hand out to people so that everyone can get up to speed a bit before our discussion. I am looking for easy to read, short materials. Most importantly, they must present the information from the viewpoint of loyalty to Catholic Church and Pope John Paul II. Simply put, I have no intention of being “fair and balanced” on this issue because in my mind there is only one side. I’d welcome any suggestions of what to present to the group to open up the discussion.
Also, if anyone has any other discussion ideas for future meetings, I’d be all ears. We’ve had this group together for almost 15 years now; we’ve covered many topics but I know the subject of Catholicism is limitless.
