Since so many of our brothers and sisters are cutting themselves off from Rome, and naming the new Mass as the reason,
it gives one cause to pause in regard to what went wrong.
However, at reader request, here is a listing (not exhaustive) of the following:
The "Autocephalous" communities, who have their own "pope;"
The "Schismatics," who don't have their own pope, but keep Tradition going more as Nostalgia than True Memory, and
would rather be at odds with the Holy See; and
The "Sedevacantists," who don't believe that Pope John Paul II is a true pope, and that there hasn't been a "real" pope
since the death of Pope St. Pius X.
Ecclesia Dei Traditionalists are in communion with Rome, and follow the papal letter "Ecclesia Dei Afflicta." They
believe the Latin Mass to be more reverent than the Novus Ordo, but will attend the latter if in a pinch (or if there is no
other choice). ECCLESIA DEI TRADITIONALISTS HAVE THE POPE'S BLESSING!!! We here at the Society of Our Lady of
the Cloister are Ecclesia Dei Traditionalists--NOT autocephalous, schismatic, or sedevacantist!!!
