"We are what you once were.
We believe what you once believed.
We worship as you once worshiped.
If you were right then, we are right now.
If we are wrong now, you were wrong then."

I have heard and seen this so many times but I have no idea where it came from. Anyone know?

The above is less a poem than an overused slogan. I do not know from whence it comes. It's tone it may derive its inspiration from some statements of Archbishop Lefebvre.

Yes, it is more of a slogan than poem.

somebody had to have written it.  maybe Una Voce or the Latin Mass Society would know.

or 'the fathers' at Traditio.  :laughing:  no, no, don't go there!

I don't think it's used enough.

Credo, why do read and post in Fisheaters?  Most of your posts are critical of traditional Catholicism, or excuse aspects of the conciliar Church that traditionalists eschew.
