Traditional Catholicism can be loosely defined as the prayers, customs and spirituality which existed universally in the Latin Rite prior to the Second Vatican Council. This term was not used at the time of the Council. It came into use subsequently, as these prayers, customs and the accompanying spirituality were being removed from modern life in every civilization throughout the world while a vigilant remnant protected it, considering it as having every right to exist and worth protecting.
To this date Traditional Catholicism has survived a prolonged period of unceasing effort to purge it, continuing to survive and even thrive as the spiritual life that millions of people throughout the world adhere to. Traditional Catholics are those Catholics who retain, practice, and protect the customs and traditions, and liturgical norms that existed throughout the world prior to 1965. Demographic surveys of this group vary, but it is commonly understood to be about 1% of all Catholics, along with another 11% who “consider themselves traditional.”
