What kind of Catholic are you?

You scored as Traditional Catholic. You look at the great piety and holiness of the Church before the Second Vatican Council and the decay of belief and practice since then, and see that much of the decline is due to failed reforms based on the "Spirit of the Council". You regret the loss of vast numbers of Religious and Ordained clergy and the widely diverging celebrations of the Mass of Pope Paul VI, which often don't even seem to be Catholic anymore. You are helping to rebuild this past culture in one of the many new Traditional Latin Mass communities or attend Eastern Catholic Divine Liturgy. You seek refuge from the world of pornography, recreational drugs, violence, and materialism. You are an articulate, confident, committed, and intelligent Catholic.

But do you support legitimate reform of the Church, and are you willing to submit to the directives of the Second Vatican Council? Will you cooperate responsibly with others who are not part of the Traditional community?

Hmm.... "You are an articulate, confident, committed, and intelligent Catholic." Not sure that's the case at all; The Evil Traditionalist can blog circles around me. I read his stuff, or Ed at Veniam Pro Laudo Peto, and I never want to blog again. Ever since I became Catholic again I feel like I have nothing to say anymore. Or maybe it's that I just don't feel like I can do the faith justice.

Or... maybe I'm just a wuss. If I admit that I use the New King James Bible then the conservative Catholics pitch a fit. If I talk about the charismatic movement in a postive light I have the traditionalists on my case. If I express my admiration for Archbishop Marcel LeFebvre and my desire to see the Tridentine Mass restored then I know I'll be getting a call from my mom :)

When people compliment me on my writing I an flattered and uncomfortable in the same moment. I still doubt; I still have questions; there are still things that I just don't get. But I'll get there. Eventually.
