I have learned much from your research. I was raised PreVat. II and attended 16 years of preVat. II education (including Thomistic theology) and must admit I was royally duped. But I do have the experience of being raised in the Roman Catholic Church. Now I watch the infighting between you… SSPX, CMRI, CFN, the Remnant, etc. and I am saddened that the Traditional Catholics can't come to the same truths - there are only the same truths in the Roman Catholic Church. How can you all be right??? If you all would just stick to the infallible teachings of the Popes from the Chair of St. Peter - the authority of Holy Mother Church - and Holy Scripture, we wouldn't be in this mess! It's taken me three years of much reading and research to reaquaint myself with the true Faith - after being so involved in the Conciliar Church for 35 years as well as the Charasmatic Renewal - had to get my Catholic thinking back! I now feel ready to go to family, friends, priests in the Conciliar Church with this Truth, but if and when they would decide to go Traditional, where do I send them. They'll find out, like I have, that there is all this infighting, and it surely won't be easy for them to find the Truth when there is so much disagreement. Perhaps we all need to stop and pray and let God be God and lead us. None of us has all the Truth! (i.e., I've heard others criticize your stance on LaSalette and Fatima. the parts of each that haven't been approved by the Church, i.e. Tuy) God continue to bless you and your work. You have done a phenomenal job for Our Lord.
Thank you for your interest. The unfortunate divisions among those who profess to be traditional Catholics arise, simply, because those people you described above reject Catholic dogmatic teaching in one or more areas. So division from them in these areas of Faith is not desirable, but it is necessary, simply because they don’t accept the truth in totality. If all “traditionalists” would accept the dogmatic teachings of the Church without compromise, then there would be no division among traditionalists. But since this is not the case, there must be division from those who deny the truth, as there can be no unity with heresy. As Our Lord says, I came to not to bring peace upon the earth, but the sword – to divide (Matthew 10:34-37).
