I don't want this to expand into a general discussion about the wrongs of VII and the mis-direction of the church since then. What I would like are people's views on whether new thinking, new interpretations are always wrong, and if not what makes the difference between a new idea or re-interpretation of an old idea being acceptable, and it being anathema to a traditional Catholic?
I sometimes struggle with why I prefer the old ways. I would hate to think that it is for superficial reasons i.e. I like the 'ceremonial', I find it interesting whereas the NO Mass bores me! It has to be more fundamental than that, surely?
Since it is the Novus Ordo Mass which is heretical and Protestant-inspired, why are you struggling and perhaps feeling guilty for longing for what is true, right, correct, and the ancient form of worship?
Opus Dei and other groups are trying desperately to convert the masses over to the Apostate Vatican II New Church by telling people in confession that they are victims of scrupulosity when they think that New is Wrong, when they miss the sacredness that has vanished from the Novus Ordo Clown Masses, when they question the authority of the Pope to change the Mass, and/or when they feel something is wrong or even heretical with the Pope's latest heretical pronouncements that the God of Islam is the same God of love whom we worship, etc. He has proclaimed so many heresies lately.
NO! We do not worship the same God as do the Jews, the Muslims, and the Buddhists.
Our God is a Triune Godhead. Their god is the devil. Our God is the God in Genesis who said, "Let Us create man in Our Own Image." Our God is the God in Genesis who promised Abraham that He would send a redeemer, the Messiah, Christ our Savior and our God.
The Catholic faith is the unchanging faith which has always been taught by Christ and passed on by the Holy Apostles. It is the Holy Faith which is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow.
