I am not a fan of the website COURAGEOUS PRIEST. More often than not it posts shallow knee-jerk conservatism and mistakes it for orthodoxy. Here's my comment on the post below:
Really? Cultural Catholicism is the FIRST problem? What the author fails to note is that all those cultures had the same Mass and worshipped in one language. That is what tied them to the universal church and produced generations of fervent Catholics and overwhelming amounts of vocations.
What happened is, we saw fit to inculturate the Mass itself. It was when we started having spanish masses, mexican masses, polish masses, youth masses, folk masses, organ masses, and whatever you want masses, that the masses began to depart from Catholicism. This isn't mere speculation. Graph it. Look at the when the mass exodus (pun intended) began.
And what followed is total moral confusion, for as the liturgy goes, so goes the church. We now have a moral babylon, but it first followed the destruction of the Mass. Very sad. And very sad that we point fingers at everything else.
