LS.. I wasn’t speaking of Sacred Tradition with a capitol “T” but tradition with a small “t”. Not every small-t- tradition (or custom) is worth keeping (or losing, for that matter). If we had stuck with the traditions of antiquity, such as communion in the hand, communion under both species, or Mass in the vernacular (and please don’t tell me that ancient Christianity never practiced it – because they did), our churches would look now exactly the way they looked in the days of the apostles. That’s what the liturgical reformers of the 20th century were aiming for. A return to the "traditions" of antiquity.
