You know your trad when....

Someone mentions the Transfiguration being a mystery in the Rosary, and knowing the mysteries by heart you ponder where you missed it only realize a couple days later it is in the Luminous mysteries!  ??? :grin:

I think you'd know you're a trad if you pounce on the person talking about the Luminous mystery and deliver a 3 hour monologue about why the Luminous mysteries disrupt the venerable purity of the Marian psalter (without mentioning that it's basically a late Medieval private devotion), segueing into an attack on Blessed Pope John Paul for promoting it in the first place (room for an interesting aside about Koran kissing and such) and ending up somewhere between teaching your captive audience how to say their Aves in Latin, and why any rosary without a string of Fatima prayers attached "just isn't the done thing, ya know?"

Alright, it was a bit of a caricature too though.

Now back to the thread.  You know you're a trad when you hold fast to the whole of the "Catholic Faith; which except a man believe truly and firmly, he cannot be saved."

Honest portrayals don't qualify as bashing. Especially if they're tongue in cheek.

Laugh a little - being self-righteous will give you a migraine.

You know you're a trad when...

... there is a section of your computer desk that has the imprint of a forehead on it.

You know you are a trad when . . .

Your definition of "trad" excludes at least half of the other people in the world that consider themselves to be trads.
