What Kind of Catholic are You?

h/t to the Ironic Catholic:

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".

(Yes, some of it is)

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.

(Yes, I do. Don't take this to mean that I don't like the Paul VI Mass. I think it contained some much needed changes. I just don't like what some people have done to it.)

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.

Well, not really. However, I am trying to keep the celebrations of the Paul VI Mass in line with the GIRM and Catholic teaching.

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?

Absolutely! I do not think a return to a Pre-Vatican II Church or liturgy is the solution, but we do need reform. - Rome of the West
