"The Five Wounds of the Liturgical Mystical Body of Christ"

"The Five Wounds of the Liturgical Mystical Body of Christ"
"The Five Wounds of the Liturgical Mystical Body of Christ" according to Bishop Athanasius Schneider: 1. Mass versus populum. 2. Communion in the hand. 3. The Novus Ordo Offertory prayers. 4. Disappearance of Latin in the Ordinary Form. 5. Liturgical services of lector and acolyte by women and ministers in lay clothing.

A traditional church movement

From the Italian Traditional Blog 'Cordialiter' a free translation:


A traditional church movement

Over the past several decades there have arisen "ecclesial movements"
 with of different kinds of sensitivity. However, one feels the lack of an
 ecclesial movement for lay faithful who wish to experience Tradition.

Priests are fundamental to the life of the Church, but by themselves 
are too few to evangelize a billion souls who live on the earth.
 We need the support of the lay faithful. If a traditional church movement
were born, I believe that the benefits to the Church would be immense.
 In this troubled period in the history of Catholicism, we need to revive
 the apostolate (the real one, not that of the rotten modernists). 
I think that in the world there are many people who live as if God
 did not exist, just because no one has made known the true Religion.
 If they knew the beauty of Christian life, lived as well as all the saints
 of the Church of all time, many would turn and they would engage to love
 the Lord and to practice Godly life.

I imagine that there are many blog readers who share this desire.
 In my opinion this ecclesial movement, if born, should be similar
 to Catholic Action of the times of the heroic Luigi Gedda, ie
 a militant movement, combative, apologetic, ascetic with apostolic fervor.

Is it just a dream? For the moment it seems so, but if God wants us to
 begin a really Catholic lay faithful organization attached to Tradition, 
nothing can prevent the Lord to bring it into being. Yeah I guess this 
powerful militia of soldiers of Jesus Christ will break down the apostolate
of modernist barbarism.
