In case you missed it--
A little sarcasm here and there...

OK, this is kind of funny. Except of course for Mediator Dei's condemnations of archeologism and of "leapfrogging organic development" to get to a more "pristine" era of the early Church.
With this understood, I can laugh at this a little bit.

This is too funny!
I actually thought about something like this a long while ago after discovering Catholic Trads here on FR. I never had the talent to do it.
Die-hard Vulgate Pope John VIII even allowed Cyril and Methodius to translate the liturgy for the Slavs into Old Church Slavonic!!
And he allowed them to do it for the Liturgies of St. John Chrysostom and St. Basil the Great (and Pre-Sanctified Gifts) to boot! I belong to a radical Church!

Even the ecumaniacs at Assisi never did anything like this--put a false goddess name ON PAR with the Virgin Mary, Mother of God!!!!
and neotrad St. Jerome are my favorite parts.

Candidates must be able to prove Apostolic Succession directly from Popes Peter, Linus, Cletus or Clement. NOTE: Greek Catholic/ Greek Orthodox Rite priests NEED NOT APPLY!!! We have arbitrarily decided not to like you guys either.
Reminds me of the argument in the "Life of Brian" between the Peoples front of Judea and the Judean Peoples' Front.
Dear God, spare us the leaven of the Pharisees!

hilarious! I loved the part about Gregory I possibly being a mason. He's my favorite pope BTW.

You modernists and liberal, A.D. Christ-worshippers make me sick! Mass? Greek? Latin? What's all that about?
I'm the founding and presently only member of the Order of Melchisidech. My order is devoted to offering sacrifice as it really should be offered and it is currently researching ancient biblical texts and ordinance maps of the Holy Land in order to locate the exact site where Melchisidech performed his holy rituals. It is there that we will pitch our tent.
The modern priesthood is infested with faggots as witnessed by the fondness for lace, gold vestments and incense. Real priests wear camel skins and coarse undergarments.
All that is now lacking for the real priesthood to be re-established is an appropriate sacrifice.
Any Freeper who has a sheep or a goat should email me.
We also have a reliable source from Italy who informs us that a recently excavated mosaic clearly depicts Pope Gregory kissing Vergils Aeneid!!!
Calm down -- it was probably the Eclogues (one of which gave Vergil the honorific of the "Pagan Prophet in the Middle Ages).

EVERY SINGLE BOOK of the New Testament was written in GREEK.
Do I smell cover-up? Rumor has it that Matthew's Gospel was originally written in Aramaic. Could the original have been deliberately suppressed???

The Vulgar Mass.
Sorry, that's funny. And it IS far more legit than referring to "the NO Mass."

Thanks for this entertaining commentary on traditionalism.

My tongue cramped while firmly lodged in my cheek, but I was really expecting the development of the argument that since, it is almost assured, that Our Lord spoke Aramaic, that the case would be made for a Truly Traditional Aramaic Mass (TTAM).
Thanks for the ping ... I don't say it often enough that I appreciate it.
Well, it's been hours since this has been posted and I can't seem to get through to the server -- hope it hasn't been Traditionally FReeped too badly :D
