Reporting from Austria, Michael Matt describes how the explosion of traditional Catholicism in Europe signals Modernism's fundamental vulnerability.
Case in Point: Nearly 20,000 came together for a traditional Catholic rendezvous in France over Pentecost weekend that promises two things:
Author's Intro (Exclusive for The Remnant): The feeling a lot of Catholics have today in the Church is often similar to a feeling of being alienated from your own country. I talked about this many times with my friend Aldo Maria Valli, a journalist and a writer, who has been a vaticanist for years. In his blog Duc in altum (among the most popular and authoritative) he has long been committed to the defense of Catholic tradition, the right doctrine and correct liturgy, even if years ago he was more a Catholic leaning toward the liberal side. I too, a Church musician for decades, have tried to understand the reasons behind the many changes in the Church in recent years, changes that now I can no longer justify. And it seems things are not going to change soon. This has given to us a sense of being uprooted, and this is the main reason behind our book, "Uprooted. Dialogues on the Liquid Church" (2018 Chorabooks). It is a book in the form of dialogue about the many issues that we are facing: liturgy, homosexuality, crisis of priesthood, mercy and justice and many more.

Explanatory note to the “Declaration of the truths relating to some of the most common errors in the life of the Church of our time”
In our time the Church is experiencing one of the greatest spiritual epidemics, that is, an almost universal doctrinal confusion and disorientation, which is a seriously contagious danger for spiritual health and eternal salvation for many souls. At the same time one has to recognize a widespread lethargy in the exercise of the Magisterium on different levels of the Church’s hierarchy in our days. This is largely caused by the non-compliance with the Apostolic duty - as stated also by the Second Vatican Council - to “vigilantly ward off any errors that threaten the flock” (Lumen gentium, 25).
