As a layman in my 60's I remember the pre and the post vatican 2 church. My
experience with the vatican 2 church beginning with the changes beginning on
the first Sunday of Advent in 1964, and introduction of new changes almost on
a weekly basic never was a spiritual and supernatural experience. Had a
message, if you do not like the changes, than get out and find an another
church. It drove me out for over a decade in which I dropped all
I returned to the church in the 1980's and decided to drive the extra miles
to a Traditional Mass in which I did first to Garden Grove, than to San Pedro.
But remember, those that still remember the church in the pre vatican 2 era
are thinning out because of years. A whole new generation has grown and
see the 1960's as ancient history. The younger people born after 1960 that
are attracted to Traditional Catholicism have the supernatural grace. And this
is proof that The Holy Ghost still protects the church.
