  • Its the lone wolf mentality, rigid personal interpretation, sweeping condemnation of other souls fighting in tradition that causes strife within Tradition.
    Liberalism tolerates everything. That's why Liberalism is a sin. So go on to your sacrilege and enjoy it.

    Liberalism tolerates everything? They are not very tolerant of chastity, or absolute truth.

  • And women handing out Eucharist is an insult to the Priesthood.
    Yes.

    A bit of background (I'm the OP): My biological father had (has?) a hatred for the priesthood and successfully dissuaded me from pursuing the priesthood. I am married now, and my parents are hoping I divorce. They had (have?) an extreme hatred for the Latin Mass and seem to think my wife and I are extremists for hating the Masonic principles of the U.S., being vocally pro-life, etcetera. They only seem to tolerate the TLM now in the hopes of getting on better terms with my wife and me, but my wife sees right through it and has ceased communication with them. They live far away in another state, but now my biological father is trying to get me to visit my dying mother. My wife refuses to visit her, and I don't want to go alone because it seems my parents are trying to drive a wedge between my wife and me. I doubt that when the funeral comes my wife will attend.

  • OP,

    You can go. The people who say you can't have no idea of the relevant principles involved in the decision. Here's an old thread where we discussed this very issue and brought in the canonists and moralists' teaching: https://www.cathinfo.com/general-discussion/non-catholic-weddings-and-funerals/

  • Divine charity must be above all.  Note, I said "Divine" charity.  If going will scandalize others and turn them from God, stay away.  If, by not going, others will turn from God,  then go.

    Remember the part of the prayer that Jesus gave us; "dimmite nobis debita nostra sicut et nos dimmitimus debitoribus nostris." That means, "Forgive us our sins as we forgive those who sin against us."

    My father always persecuted me for being a Christian and I always feared he would kidnap my child just to spite me. When he was in the ICU and after I went to see him. I would have gone to be funeral but I could not afford it. Stay in a hotel and visit your mother but keep strict boundaries. I would not stay in their home or be dependent on them for anything like transportation or meals.

    Remember the words that our savior taught us, "dimite nobis debita nostra sicut et nos debitimus debitoribus nostris." which means "forgive us our sins as we forgive those who sin against us."
