REUNIONText Box: THE CRACKED AND CRUMBLED FOUNDATIONS OF LATIN RITE TRADITIONALISTS THEOLOGY
This study was made necessary due to attempts by Roman Catholic Latin Rite Traditionalists, to take over Orthodox Church organizations, and to pretend they are Orthodox.

The main approach of this exploration is to focus on the effect and effects of the Latin Rite Traditionalists theology. The accuracy of that theology is a factor, but the effects, effect the “outcome” of that theology.  As an example, if a person believes gravity is a repelling force instead of an attracting force, that person would expect that when a person jumps off the of the roof of a building, the jumper would not be attracted to and fall to the ground, but rather, would fly up into the air.

From Metropolitan Archbishop Lee S. Mc Colloster, S.S.B.

The Roman Catholic Church has some, shall we say, worship related organization problems. One of the problems is, what to do with Charismatics. Another of the problems is, what to do with Latin Rite Traditionalists.

Charismatics seem to like to be involved with the Holy Spirit, and most often are identified by their perpetual, public, saccharin smiles (their state of smiling in private or when preoccupied seems to not be not quite as Text Box:  The Society of Clerks Secular of Saint Basil

Rome quite wisely simply made room for them within Rome’s existing worship organization structure.

The Latin Rite Traditionalists, often commonly known as Trads, were handled quite differently.

Rome attempted to quash the use of the Traditional Latin Mass, and Latin, restricting the consecration of Trad bishops, while concurrently instituting and exercising additional, similarly harsh methods.

This lead to a schism and also a form of schism or “shadow schism” within the Roman Catholic Church. Some of the Traditionalists formally formed The Society of Saint Pius X which was formally “condemned” by Rome. Some Trads met privately with Priests who said Mass in Latin without formally separating from Rome. Some of the Trads attempted to perpetuate their organizational systems and to gain credibility by seeking association with various Orthodox Church Jurisdictions using numerous, amazingly varied methods.

One Orthodox Bishop of Russian lineage experienced a somewhat strange “reunion” with a childhood schoolmate. The schoolmate, a Roman Catholic who became a parishioner in a parish of The Society of Saint Pius X (SSPX), contacted the Bishop around the turn of the century (20th - 21st). The Bishop had not had contact with this SSPX parishioner for several Text Box: ERRORS OR PERHAPS

And the lack of fortitude he exhibited when confronted by his superior - his Bishop, and his profound guile.

Roman Catholic Latin Rite traditionalists, sometimes referred to as “Trads” normally would not be the subject of extensive comment in an Orthodox publication. 

When the efforts between the hierarchs of the various Orthodox Churches and the Roman Catholic Church, directed towards reunification, are considered, then various aspects of Roman Catholic and Roman Catholic related activities must become subject to more intense inspection. This must include the Roman Catholic Traditionalists “movement”.
