When you start wanting a "pre-1962" missal, and whining about how the 1962 Missal is a sellout, you're pridefully considering yourself wiser than Archbishop Lefebvre, the 4 bishops, and all priests in the SSPX, FSSP, Institute of Christ the King, plus every decent priest in the N.O. who discovered the same abuses YOU did in the N.O. and decided to say the Tridentine Mass.
Such a person needs to stop philosophizing about "in an ideal world, which version of the Tridentine Mass would be best?" and go get their basic Catechism and look up the section on "Humility".
Because that's quite a prideful stance, in my opinion. You're saying that "you can see it" but they can't? If it were that simple, I'm sure +W and a thousand other priests -- professionally trained in theology, liturgy, etc. -- could figure it out.
You might say that's the stance we Trads have vis-a-vis the thousands of Novus Ordo priests -- "We see it, but they don't". But it's different. FAR different. Many Novus Ordo priests are either poisoned by modernism themselves, OR they are attached to some worldly comfort, $50,000 a year salary, human respect, health insurance, pensions, etc.
That cannot be said for Traditional bishops and priests. You might as well criticize the martyrs of being blinded by their comforts!
The 1962 Mass is just fine for getting people to heaven. The Novus Ordo is not. Let's stay on track here. Talk about a useless division of trad. Catholics!
THIS is what makes people not want to talk to Sedevacantists. They are quick to judge the pope, as well as thousands of their "betters" at a single swoop, with no twinge of conscience. They are perfectly prepared to believe that they are wiser than just about everybody else, cleric or laity.
Just like CM was happy to believe he was of the last 3 Catholics on earth -- he is merely an extreme case.
