I realize that my more well read, uh, readers may easily be able to guess the author, and perhaps even source, of the following passage, but I have erased the title in the hopes that you would read these words with an open mind.
If you are a “trad”, how closely does the following match your view of the Second Vatican Council? If you are more of the “neo-Catholic” or “conservative Catholic” bent, how does the following strike you?
The matter is quite simple.
If you regard the teachings and reforms of Vatican II as substantially in accord with prior Catholic teaching, then you have absolutely no grounds for resisting or even so much as chafing at them.
Conversely, if the divine gift of Faith within you summons a dissent against patent contradiction(s) with and “corrections of” Catholic tradition, then you have absolutely no basis for regarding the promulgators of such teachings/reforms as authentic shepherds sanctioned by Christ.
