Fr Chad Ripperger FSSP presents a blunt and honest indictment of some of the serious problems, at least in his opinion, in the traditional Catholic movement. Most of the problems he mentions are ones which I can relate to myself or have observed around me. I'd be really interested to hear what people on this forum think of it.

The sermon is only fifteen minutes in length, and I sincerely recommend listening to it. Please click the link and spare fifteen minutes of your time to listen, and then discuss here what you thought of it.

I'm expecting that there will be some extremely mixed reactions to this.
I agree with some of what he said. We have to be careful always, because sometime Satan uses what we have been privilege to get against us. We have to be on our guide always!
In fact more devils are attaching us than others who doesn’t know what is going on in the world and the church. :pray2:
Interesting food for thought.  Regarding the point about impurity, as bad as it might be within Catholic circles, I think it is even worse outside of it.  The others do it without as much guilt.
Hear, Hear!

The reading of how bad everything is, and constant complaining is a form of pornography itself.

Call it Religious Porn.

yea Father at our church  has been having a pride theme the last few weeks in his sermons too. He is saying the devil works through pride with those who are closer to God and church and trys harder on those, than who are away from the church because they have already fallen -

I was wondering, if you welded an iron mesh to the front of that would that make it "John Paul the Grate".  :afraidsmiley:
I must say that I am guilty of Pride and Despair. We have to be the salt of the Earth how can we season the Earth if we don't interact with the Earth?
Yes, while we strive for holiness, we can at least be humble and gateful for what we possess by faith. The Almightly allowed this crisis and perhaps we don't deserve to see it end unless we persevere with some trust and joy.
God bless Father Ripperger. Keepin it real. I really appreciate his honest assessment of trad problems.

Interesting how he draws a line between pride and impurity. I've never looked at it that way, but it does make sense.  I also think he hit the nail on the head about charity in context with our words. I think us trads, in general, could be better stewards of our words.



I thought that was excellent and right on.  Thanks for sharing it!
