    Question How are Traditional Catholics?

    How do they act usually? Are they extremists or ultra-conservative when it comes to faith?

    I believe Mel Gibson is a Traditional Catholic. They oppose the reforms of Vatican II.

    It depends what you mean by extreme. Traditional Catholics believe in God, that Abortion is wrong, and that you go to either Heaven, Hell or purgatory when you die. And also that praying to God, Mary and certain Saints, can alter the out come of events. There are certain behaviours stemming from holding those beliefs that the non-believers may find odd.

    For instance, Many women of the older generation attend a prayer group for a couple of hours on one or more nights per week in addition to going to Mass on a Sunday. Some, including my mother, even go on pilgrimages once every couple of years to Lourdes, or Medgoria and other places where they believe the Virgin Mary has appeared, however it is generally only the women who do this.

    As for "Ultra-Conservative", my mother knows I spend a lot of time on this and similar sites and she doesn't have a problem with it. She wouldn't think like that if she was an "Ultra-Conservative Catholic", now would she?

    Or would she?

    Eh, ok well then my answer refers only to regular Observant Catholics. The Traditional Catholic, then is the type that only goes to Latin or "Tridentine Mass".They are a rare breed, in fact I don't know if I have ever even met on personally.

    It depends on what kind of Catholics you are talking about. Some Catholics never even bother going to Church. Belgians are usually Catholic from what I have heard, that's what seperates them from the Dutch and Flemish.

    Well, yes. Pre-Vatican council Catholicism was quite a bit more conservative, but I wouldn't call them "extremists", unless you want to call all Catholics prior to the 1960s extreme.

    Personally I think the Tridentine mass is beautiful and Novus Ordo gets abused quite a bit.

    Omnia instaurare in Christo

    And all my youth passed by sad-hearted,
    the joy of Spring was never mine;
    Autumn blows through me dread of parting,
    and my heart dreams and longs to die.

    - Nikolaus Lenau (1802-1850)

    Real misanthropes are not found in solitude, but in the world; since it is experience of life, and not philosophy, which produces real hatred of mankind.

    - Giacomo Leopardi (1798-1837)

    Here is a video of Tridentine mass in one of the biggest "Traditional" churches in the world (it's in Paris, I think). The Latin Novus Ordo mass doesn't even compare to this one.

    That looks like just about every Catholic mass I've ever been to. I'm not sure I understand the difference between "Traditional" Catholics and the other Catholics.

    When my mum and dad got married, mum wasn't baptised and she was baptised catholic before they got married, as well as solemnly promising to raise their kids as such. Divorce wasn't recognised by the vatican - there was a big hullaballoo when Princess Caroline of Monaco sought annullment from her first husband so she could marry her second one.

    Suicide is also considered a mortal sin in that the soul lives a limbo existence. My take on that is if you did commit suicide, you would reincarnate to address that former life issue until you've learned the lesson.

    The rules seem to have relaxed over the years, but the kids still need to be baptised as catholics. I think a lot of it depends on the parish. Rituals for the most part have stayed the same. One of my Pagan girlfriends got married to a catholic man recently, and we all went along - and marvelled that the church didn't fall down on us LOL We were also surprised at the comparisons between the catholic ritual/ceremony and the Pagan ones. I should've twigged to this, but I hadn't set foot inside a church for many years, and I forgot.

    I was raised Catholic (8 years of school, altar boy, etc.) by a family that pretty much rejected Vatican II. My paternal grandmother made my grandfather convert before she'd marry him. It's funny, most of them are "ultra-conservative" in character, but consistently vote Democratic in elections here (U.S.) because of St. John (Kennedy). I've pretty much fallen away from anything that even remotely resembles "traditional Catholicism", but appreciate the value of my early education and the stabilizing role it has played in the lives of my relatives. I have attended masses in Latin and did find them interesting, but I don't feel much connection to the language.
