This is the “n” of “Nazarean”, tagged on the walls of christian houses in Mosul (Iraq), before they were forced to exile and their cathedral was burned. There’s a genocide going on there, right now.

Are you a "traditionalist", like, are you an advocate for the Latin mass & the mantilla? If so, why, and if not, why not?

I hate when people call themselves traditionalists.

WOAH WOAH WOAH HOLD THE HATE MAIL LET ME EXPLAIN!!

the Catholic Church is hella diverse. charismatic masses, ordinary form, extraordinary form, sung mass, low mass, THERE IS SO MUCH! and that’s just the mass.

then there are the different devotions: mantillas, religious orders, secular institutes, lay movements, spiritual writers. SO MUCH!!

when we call ourselves a certain kind of catholic (charismatic, traditional, etc) we are ignoring that diversity. we are catholic. that’s it.

I’m totally game for a Latin mass. I’m totally game for ANYTHING that brings you closer to Christ.

follow him, love him, serve him.

Tradismatics (Tradismaticism?) for the win.

Look at the all theological errors (Charismatics often do liturgical abuse) and the OF often has liturgical abuse coming from a guy who usually goes to OF almost exclusively

True. But that doesn’t make the OF bad; the abuses are bad, not the OF itself. I’ve been to both good and borderline-abusive OF Masses. The OF isn’t necessarily the problem; those who abuse it are.

Thanks do-brave-things! You are so right! It is downright pathetic that we, the ONE holy Catholic Church cannot put away our differences. For me, I love Latin in the occasional sense, but I am not so much a fan of the Tridentine Liturgy (bad experience as a kid). I am a form of the Charismatics, Novus Ordo, while at the same time, I think it is awesome when I see a girl wear a mantilla at Mass just as much as I love seeing that person at Mass. PERIOD. Hell, I once went to Mass in my rugby uniform, and let me tell you, those shorts are short. It doesn’t make me any less Catholic, (although I did get a couple giggles from the old ladies which made me feel awkward lol). 

What I am saying is that, God made us uniquely. Therefore our spirits our different and sometimes we have to fill those spiritual needs which we are called to. One form of worship is no greater nor less than anyone elses. God holds them all in equal regards.Yes abuse is wrong, but the form is not. The Holy Spirit can be found present in all things, if only we open the eyes of our heart to see it. :)

You in a rugby uniform…oi vey.

It is real. No lie.This was our uniform. I am in back center.
