TRADITION


 

 

 

RENEWAL MUST BE BASED ON TRADITION

When Martin Luther rebelled, he rebelled against a Catholic Church which was not faithful to Tradition. But the reformers who followed him rebelled against a tradition of which they were acquainted with.  Our old men today have very little to rebel against because they know little of Tradition.  Our young men know nothing of Tradition and have nothing left to rebel against.  Today, we don't have rebels; we only have ignorant Catholics who do not have the faculties to appreciate what Catholicism means and, therefore, cannot work out their salvation.    

Most, if not all Catholics, do not know what the word "faith" means.  Men who hear it think it signifies either blind acceptance of irrational statements which common experiences tend to condemn.  Though such words as dogma and theology still impress, the queen of theological subjects, ascetical theology, is a figment of the mind, an unreality, something insignificant.
