So many things have changed over the decades since Vat II. Many devotions such as Enthronement of the Sacred Heart, etc have fallen into disuse and neglect because the Modernist apostates dressing up as clergy are ignorant of the spiritual benefit offered by pious and sincere adoption of those devotions.
Which sacramentals, devotional practices, etc do you feel have been the most neglected over the last 50 years?
If you were born and/or raised in the traditional Faith pre-Council and were sensible to the changes that took place in your lifetime, can you share with us any particular devotions that you ONCE saw practiced frequently that fell into relative obscurity in your parish?
My late maternal grandfather, who died in 1986, was a member of his parish Altar Society and Holy Name Society, IIRC. I recently met some men who are currently members of the Holy Name Society in that parish, and though they seemed like nice men, their comportment and demeanor made them seem more like Rotary Club or Moose Lodge members than members of the Society of the Holy Name of Jesus. They had their matching polo shirts with little parish logos on them and everything.
One thing that I've noticed is how marginalized true Marian devotion has become. Sure, there are statues, etc of Our Lady in the parishes around me, but these days, if you can find a significant one at all, it's "Our Lady of Grace" or "Our Lady of Lourdes". Those are lovely images of Our Lady, and I would never disavow fidelity to Holy Church for recognizing Mary under those titles, but I notice almost NO images of "Our Lady of Fatima" or "Our Lady of Sorrows"; representations of Our Lady at times when she spoke apocalyptic warnings and reminded the world of the anguish of her Immaculate Heart.
Plenty of nice, soft reminders of Our Lady's beautiful intercession and her Son's glory reflected in her Immaculate Conception, but no images or devotions that call to mind her messages of penance and impending disaster if men do not leave off their sin.
Immaculate Heart of Mary, triumph soon!
Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, have mercy on us.
