Many of us have been exposed to those who introduce or support liturgical abuse from a overly “progressive” point of view. They follow their own desires (or those of popularist culture), rather than what the Church directs. Many do so under the guise of “the Spirit of Vatican II.” We have posted at length about this issue.
The same thing is taking place in the “traditionalist” (whatever that is) camp. The traditionalists also seems to have a penchant to discount what the Church directs – in favor of what they feel the Church should be directing – even if it contraves the Church!
Their efforts are done not in “the Spirit of Vatican II”, but in what they believe ther early church did, or the 1962 Missal church did. The effect however is the same – dissent.
When all is said and done, neither the spirit of Vatican II’ers or the traditionalists are orthodox Catholics. By discounting the Church for their own desires, they are indeed heterodox – and they both harm the Church.
