Must See Edition of The Vortex

I admit to not being much of a Michael Voris fan after some early videos years ago leaning toward extreme traditionalism, but Mr. Voris has posted a new video on Catholic response to attacks on our new pope, Francis, that I think  is a must see.  Regardless of our preferences in liturgical style and devotional practices, in the end we are all Catholic, and must stand together against the attacks on the papacy.

    Not surprisingly, I’m not a fan of Michael Voris at all. But, that said, this is very good and very good advice for us all. Thanks, CL.

      I was really pleasantly surprised at this installment. We’ve all been rather shocked at the swift attacks on Francis as he is everything that the Vatican II generation wanted – at least on the surface – but still adhering to Church teaching. The Voris types are after something else entirely. The trads need to be reminded from time to time of Christ’s message on the law and the hypocrisy of concentrating on the trees rather than the forest. It can be pretty maddening.

      But, if Francis likes the Missa de Angelis which was sung at his installation, I can live with it for his time in office. His purpose there isn’t solely liturgy and returning to fashion tradition. Some big personnel matters need to be dealt with.

        I think so as well, just from the little I know, not my church after all. I have noticed some of your traddies are pretty extreme. I suspect a good many of the Vatican II generations actually want happy-clappy nonsense, So their problem may well be with the teaching of the church.

        In truth I have problems with my ELCA as well, it’s far too happy-clappy, one advantage of being a protestant is that it’s permissible to shop, which is why I’m seriously thinking about the Missouri Synod or perhaps even a Confessional Lutheran church.

        Our traddies make simple Christian charity difficult to achieve. For a lot of them, it’s their way or the highway and it gets in the way, to be honest. Fortunately, as every archdiocese has a variety of styles in the parishes, it’s not all that hard to find something that suits. We’re supposed to stick to parish boundries, but that doesn’t happen all that much anymore. It’s at the core of why only one member of my family actually belongs to the parish where they live. Okay, two. The rest of us put on our pilgrim shoes and found something more suited to our tastes.

        I hate to be hard on some people, but it’s the truth that their legalism gets in the way of charity. I don’t think that Christ would approve.
