I think it's perhaps a pitfall for many Traditional Catholics. 

I know for me, a good chunk of my conversations consist of me trying to prove I'm right about a thing, or that the world is wrong about something, etc.  I don't think there's anything wrong with pointing out areas in the Church where REVERENCE and LOVE need to be improved.  But I also think it can put us into a sort of prideful mentality; and for me, almost launch me into a kind of "mania".  I think it's important to constantly remind ourselves that our conduct needs to be filled with CHARITY.

This is a beautiful prayer called "The Litany of Humility".  I'm going to try and pray it daily:  (courtesy of chastitysf.com)


O  JESUS merciful and humble of heart,
 Hear me. 
 

FROM the desire of being admired,
 Deliver me, Jesus. 
   From the desire of being loved,
      "
   From the desire of being praised,
      "
   From the desire of being favored,
      "
   From the desire of being accepted,
      "
   From the desire of being consulted,
      "
   From the desire of being well-known,
      "
   From the desire of being honored,
      "
 

FROM the fear of being criticized,
      "
   From the fear of being ridiculed,
      "
   From the fear of being humiliated,
      "
   From the fear of being falsely accused,
      "
   From the fear of being persecuted,
      "
   From the fear of being disbelieved,
      "
   From the fear of being despised,
      "
   From the fear of being forgotten,
      "
 

THAT others may be loved more than I,
 Jesus, grant me the grace to desire it. 
That others may be admired more than I,
      "
That others may be praised though I
   may be unnoticed,

      "
 

That others may be chosen though I
   may be set aside,

      "
 

That others may be preferred to me in
   receiving social honors,

      "
 

That, in the opinion of the world,
   others may increase in prominence
   while I remain hidden,

      "
 
 

Though others will do what they want,
   may my life be a radiant reflection
   of Your glory,

1. That would make me at least partially right, would it not?

2. I'm going to assume the text you quoted is incomplete or a mistake; otherwise I don't know what you mean.
