It seems to me that a "trinity independent Baptist church" would need some remodeling to make it a true Catholic-looking Church inside and out.
Just goes to show how closely the sspx has joined the NO.
Why is this anonymous? Lots of chapels start off as former Protestant churches. That isn’t a reason for the SSPX sliding towards the novus ordo. Of course it will take work to make it look Catholic. I’ve been in a few chapels, formerly Protestant, that are beautifully Catholic. There is even a chapel of the SSPX that I’ve been told was originally a factory that made women’s undergarments! I’ve never been there, but I highly doubt there are sewing machines or samples of the products lying around!
What I can’t help but notice is that traditionalists establish new chapels in response to the presence of existing chapels. Instead of starting a Catholic mission in places without Catholics or traditional Mass, they compete with fellow trads. In the meantime, geographically isolated Catholics remain stuck in novus ordo parishes or involuntarily home alone.
THIS IS PROTESTANT BEHAVIOR. Catholics need to return to being true missionaries. Isn’t there an independent traditional chapel west of D.C.? St Athanasius? Is this not what the Indult parishes did in response to SSPX when it was still fighting modernism? Establish an Indult parish in hopes of stealing away people from the SSPX? Why not start a chapel in an area without any traditional venue? I have a disabled cousin who’d love to be able to hear Latin Mass and receive traditional Last Rites. She cannot move and lives in north central Maine. I believe there is someone on Cathinfo from Vermont who rarely, if ever has Mass or Sacraments. The SSPX is motivated too much by competing for sheep and going where the money is than the true Apostolic missionary spirit. What happened to Our Lord’s command to preach to all nations making converts?
