Remember +Williamson bashed the 1950's?

  • Remember how +Williamson used to teach that the 1950's were bad, with their APPARENT "everything is fine" sunny Catholicism? Even though the rot was there, barely under the surface, ready to break out in the 1960's with Vatican II and after that with the Novus Ordo Missae with all its abuses...

    Many SSPX Catholics (and chapels) were living like it's the 1950's. Having their Sunday Catholicism, but the rest of their life was worldly, emotional, sentimental, and it wouldn't take much to take it all away from them.

    The problem with recreating the 1950's, is that Vatican II happened only 10 years later! It's interesting that so much of the SSPX (especially St. Mary's) was like the 1950's, which is all many Trads are after. And now the fruits of the 1950's, once again, is the 1960's and a revolution to accept the Modern World.

    Nothing new under the sun. History repeats itself, or at least it rhymes.

    As far back as I can remember, my father had many lengthy and heated debates with almost every SSPX priest that we ever knew, with the exception of Bp Williamson of course, on the errors of the 1950's.  My father saw the errors of the "50's" coming after the conclusion of WWII. Deo gratias! Probably one of the main reasons his children never saw the inside walls of the N.O.

    On a side note, my mother had the soundtrack of The Sound of Music on a record, (we didn't have a television growing up , only a record player.) Every time that it was played it would make my father upset. It wasn't until Bp Williamson began publishing the follies of the movie, did I begin to understand... if one can't see the folly in this movie, their NOT going to see anything wrong with the "50's.

    "Sunday Catholicism" is right. Consider those folks who show up to Mass well-dressed and (apparently) recollected, but once they get home they change into their t-shirts and underwear...
