If you have drawn the conclusion that the SSPX is not in schism, try not to fear catching a schismatic mentality from them. Plot a course and move on in your education program and leave the issue behind if you've made your choice.
You are right, but how could the grace be explained? Could it be that:
- I was right to go to the Novus Ordo Missæ?
- or that I was right to maintain the reverence of the traditional Mass?
I have difficulty believing that it could be the former, given that the new Mass pays such a lowly tribute to Our Lord.
I'm not sue where to find this book or similar online. You could try a google or yahoo search. It's also easy to forget that this forum is attatched to the greatest Catholic site on the web. A search of "Catholic suffering" produced this: http://www.fisheaters.com/offeringitup.html
Thank you for that; I really need an explanation on why God would let a fervent Catholic, or a Catholic who would like to be fervent, suffer to the point that there is a risk of losing hope, sinning, etc.
Time for me to go to bed, or should I say, well past it. See you next time, Grumpy.
Sleep well; truly, thank you for your answers.
BTW, don't forget to pick up a Mass schedule each week at Mass. It'll save you from the hideous songs and funny looks from the Priest regarding your reverence, you trad kook.
There normally is a High Mass every Sunday at 10 A.M., but this morning was an exception … I guess that I should have payed more attention during the parish announcements last week!
God bless you,
