Farewell to Vetus Ordo: Share the Memories
#1
Figured that if Jackson Eskew was worthy of a thread here, Vetus should get something...

Some of my favorite times on this forum were before my registration - reading the back-and-forth between Vetus and Credo.  Such good times, indeed! [/nostalgia]

A fair, honourable, and articulate Traditional Catholic. I hope we haven't seen the last of him.

He is a Catholic gentleman, and a friend. I disagreed with him on a few things, but on those essential things, we are in agreement. I would always look forward to him giving an articulate, Catholic response.

I learned from Vetus.
Thank you, from a newcomer.

Is Vetus gone? Why?

Vetus, you were like a son to me.  :(

We're not entirely sure as to why, but I think this post from yesterday may provide some clue:

I know how it will turn out, though: they'll mail me and call me a liberal or feminazi or "Jew-lover" or whatever, will most likely run off to another forum and go on about how FE is liberal and not even close to "traditional," etc.

Yeah, this place is part cesspit. You don't know how sorry I am about it, too. But I'm "letting some people go" around here. I'm sick of it. Don't let the few, the loud-mouthed people who like to name-call and who seem to not have much charity taint your view of what "traditional Catholicism" is (those few tend to post more than others, most likely because they're typically young unmarried males with nothing better to do, like raise families and work for a living).

Traditional Catholicism is the truth, set up by Christ Himself. Too bad some of those who claim to be "trad" focus more on venting rather than bringing souls to Christ. Don't let anyone or anything keep you from Christ and His Church, especially not some stupid internet forum. The only thing that will change the public "face" of traditional Catholicism is for those trads who have love in them to post more and to not be run out by the bitter types.

According to his FB page, no reason was given, I often disagreed with him on minor points of theological opinion, but he was a solid, orthdox Catholic poster as well as a fine example of a Catholic gentleman. I'll miss him a great deal.

Favorite moments with Vetus?  G+ comes to mind.  And that one time when me and him and I forget who else were discussing the etymology of anatomical parts... that was great.

Go thy ways, old Jack;
die when thou wilt, if manhood, good manhood, be
not forgot upon the face of the earth, then am I a
shotten herring. There live not three good men
unhanged in England; and one of them is fat and
grows old: God help the while! a bad world, I say.
I would I were a weaver; I could sing psalms or any
thing. A plague of all cowards, I say still.

As an aside, does anyone know what parish Vetus went too in his native country [I believe Portugal}?

Vetus is one of the folks that made FE great.  If his ban is permanent then we've lost something irreplaceable and we should count ourselves as quite unfortunate.
