"Steve, You keep posting the Novus Ordo stuff. This is a trad forum. We pray for these people but do any of us care about these goings on? Connect the dots, and get away from that org."
Erementiana, I ragged on stevus once for this very same reason. Then I realized that there might be newbies on this forum and that something like this might get their attention or at least get them to ask a few questions.
It might also serve as a reminder for us why we do what we do to get to a traditional Mass. I only have N.O. available right now and it's making me quite radical. I've read all the arguments a couple of dozen times and I still can't decide if we have two different Churches or One Church badly in need of restoration. My common sense tells me we have two different religions. My cowardice warns me to not do anything hasty because I might be schismatic. I really detest Martin Luther and I loathe doing anything he might have done.
(Please don't post any arguments here--I've seen 'em all, trust me. I just need some further guidance, of the celestial variety. I've probably already received enough heavenly help for a normal man to make a decision, but as I said, I'm weak and cowardly and I have an annoying tendency to question everything a hundred times over. I've missed out on a lot of good things that way, too.)
