Thoughts on Vatican II and a question for you

Blind obedience. Ignorance of the Faith. Indifference. Or maybe they were already infected with liberalism and me-ism to some degree. Or maybe theirs was the generation that should have heeded the words of Christ when he warned the Pharisees: "You have made void the commandment of God by your tradition." This does not sound like a generation most traditionalists would want to emulate.

Let’s hear what another traditionalist had to say:

Quote: 1950-ism the sort of Catholicism from the 1950s that led us to the Vatican II conciliar collapse. The appearance of religion without the substance. A Pharisaic sentimentalism. A spiritual diet of candy and sweets. Like trying to live off candy. – Bp Richard Williamson
