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).

Yes, I've heard your "big T, small t" talk before. The problem is that I don't think you understand how the small t changes (either accidently or by the authority of the  Church for some reason).

Big T cannot change, like the Church's teaching on Religious Liberty. Your typical defense of apparent Big T changes is to say they are small t...not explicitly, mind you, but with your general comments about "not confusing Big T with small t". YOU are confusing the two in many cases.

Quote: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.
This is just a straw man.

Quote:That’s what the liturgical reformers of the 20th century were aiming for. A return to the "traditions" of antiquity.
No, they wanted to abandon Tradition. A true REFORMER is a man of Tradition. They were REVOLUTIONARIES.

"Pope Leo XIII, [i Wrote:Apostolicae Curae[/i]"]Being fully cognizant of the necessary connection between faith and worship, between "the law of believing and the law of praying", under a pretext of returning to the primitive form, they corrupted the Liturgical Order in many ways to suit the errors of the reformers.
