This is what I'm gonna go with...!

I just think of Our Lord's parable of the wheat and the chaff. Until the end of the world, there will be chaff in the church, albeit in varying quantities and levels of influence. There's clearly a correlation to me between the Novus Ordo and the accelerating collapse of morality in the Western Church. Within the NO, maybe 50% deny transubstantiation, we have over 95% of Catholic women who avoid pregnancy doing so with artificial birth control, low level of meeting the Sunday obligation, receiving communion without proper absolution beforehand, etc.

But the question is how much of this "departure from the faith" was present in Catholics internally before the Council. In a sense, the church was already deeply rotten or the Council never would have occurred in the first place. Why did Pius XII appoint Bugnini to reform the Holy Week? A lot of this really goes back to Pius X "losing" the fight against modernism. He did all he conceivably could, but no one was able to stem the tide.

In that sense it becomes a chicken-or-the-egg argument. At the absolute least, the NO solved nothing and made everything worse. But the root of the rot stretches further back.

JayneK is certainly not a modernist. Any actual modernists venturing onto FE would probably get banned fairly rapidly.
