Why is it when I post a topic

  • There is zero response?   Maybe we aren't really like minded Catholics after all?   Maybe  traditional Catholicism is just for those who cherish the smells and bells with uber lace? And everything is about money.  If you work for a living, you are looked down.  From where I am from, it is nothing but a social club for people with many children who kiss up to their priest. A bunch of fake and phonies.  They go to the Latin Masses and even the SSPX while attending a No home school co op.  And won't veil or even dress modestly when they go to Eucharistic adoration.  The way they treat other people lacks charity and is not Catholic. They shun people.  The only decent people are a group of younger sedevantists.

  • Now the last thing you need Viva is no response to this post, yes? So I will do my duty.

    It is perfectly obvious to me that by far the majority of readers are not posters but enjoy reading those that do. Not exactly the purpose of a forum, but even posters pick and chose the subjects they are interested in.

    I suppose it is no different in open society where the majority just keep to themselves. The few 'letters to the editor' witness this.

    It happens to us all. then again sometimes the OP says all there is needed to say.

  • I tried to do a search for previous posts of yours but I couldn't isolate them from other posts which had the words "viva, cristo, or rey" in them, so I cannot speak specifically about your posts but:

    Perhaps your posts are right on target so people see no reason to respond, there is no "controversy" to address.

    or

    Perhaps your post are so irrelevant that people see no reason to respond.

    As I said, I do not know how to correctly search so that I can see a history of your posts, I'm just making guesses.

  • God tries our humility when we are ignored.

    i could have written this myself, pretty much word for word except for the part about "many children." To that i said HUH? hardly any catholics have many children unless 2 children (by age 40) is considered "many" these days?
    ok, the traditionalists have more children than non-trads. That is very good. But anyway, to get back to your main point:
    I have had the exact  same thoughts and perceptions/feelings, that it is just a social club and not very sociable at that. I esp relate to the last part.. way they treat other people lacks charity. 
    One time I didn't kneel immediately after Communion (I had a valid reason for not kneeling..) & this woman behind me pointed to the kneeler (at least that is the way I interpreted her hand gestures, could be wrong I guess) and said something. I could not hear her whispering and wasn't there to socialize in any case, but the point is that (again i could be wrong but dont think i am) that she was more concerned about me doing the proper gestures than-- well, she knows about some of my crosses, did not seem the least sympathetic much less empathetic about those... and yet she just couldn't stand to see me not kneel.

    I dont think it is just the fact of being ignored, although ignoring someone is a big offense in my book
    I think it is the lack of support behind the ignoring that poster is referring to. I mean if someone says something that is uplifting or informative or... why can't other so called like minded people SAY so? Is that going to kill anyone? We all need to be encouraged and supported. "Love your neighbor as yourself." If you dont want to be ignored yourself maybe you should not ignore

  • well, if i may say so, it seems a bit odd that you don't have something to add, assuming you mean that that happens a lot. I notice that I myself have a lot of cmments and questions about certain stories that are not always brought up by anyone, the commentators on TV. Everyone has their own unique experiences and insight and it is valuable in the public forums, whether internet forums or--writig to senators or whatever

  • I've been away from the forum for quite a while ... honestly, I'm not sure why or how I "drifted away" and only today realised "hey I haven't been to CathInfo in ages and ages, I should check in!" ... so that would by why I haven't responded.

    Sometimes I know I don't reply because I have nothing to add other than "I agree" which doesn't seem to add anything to a discussion, but I'll make more of an effort to let people know when I agree with them.

    As regards your observations of people at the chapel ... sadly, I think this is simply human nature that most people will tend not to take their faith seriously and will tend to go out of a sense of social obligation or habit. This is then greatly exacerbated by the fact that we live in a pagan "post-Christian" society that constantly attacks and denigrates the Faith and decent living. Take clothing for example, if someone doesn't take their faith seriously, they care more about fitting in with those around them (so people don't "look at them funny") than they do about pleasing God, so they dress according to the immoral style of the day. A hundred years ago you would not notice because general society dressed in a way consistent with Christian morals.
