r”rnIhditional Catholicism Is BackrnSince the 1960s, Catholicism in America has experimentedrnwith religious liberalism, and the results arernin: Two out of three Catholics don’t believe in the RealrnPresence of Christ in the Eucharist. The number of priests,rnbrothers, sisters, Catholic schools, seminaries, baptisms,rnmarriages, and conversions has declined — dramaticallyrnin certain cases. And weekly church attendance hasrndropped from 70% to 25%. Catholic liberalism has beenrna monumental flop. Of coursernFather Flapdoodle, SisterrnSnakebite, and BishoprnBubbles haven’t figured thatrnout — they think the 60srnnever ended. Still trying to berncool cats, they’re so coolrnthey’re frozen in a time warp.rnBut, mercifully, God’srnfrozen people are thawingrnout. Where’s the fire and dynamismrnin the Church today?rnAmong traditional Catholics!rnThe dioceses that have no vocationsrnshortage, the religiousrnorders that are growing, andrnthe seminaries that are packedrnare predominantly the traditionalrnones. And traditionalrnCatholics have been founding new colleges and seminaries.rnPolls show that the Catholics most committed to thernChurch are traditional Catholics. Seminarians and youngerrnpriests are much more traditional than middle-aged andrnolder priests. The only novel idea in Catholic education isrnhome-schooling, spearheaded by traditional Catholics. Thernonly massive grassroots movement in the Church is thernprolife movement, led by traditional Catholics. The onlyrnsignificant Catholic presence on TV is the ardently traditionalrnEWTN. The only significant Catholic voice on radiornis that of traditional Catholics.rnIn Catholic journalism, guess what’s coming at yournhot off the presses? Orthodoxy! And who blazed thatrntrail? We at the NEW OXFORD REVIEW did. AsrnFr. Joseph Fessio said recently, “Since the NEWrnOXFORD REVIEW began…! can count 19 newrn[orthodox] Catholic magazines.” We werernfounded in 1977 as an orthodox Anglo-Catholicrnmagazine, taking our name from the 19thcenturyrnOxford Movement, andrnwe immediately championedrnPope John Paul II when herncracked down on dissentingrntheologian Hans KiJng,rnalthough no leading RomanrnCatholic magazinernwas willing to do so. Thernnovelty of Anglicans supportingrna muscular Pope attractedrnthe attention ofrnNewsweek, which did arnstory on us and predictedrnthat we would, like JohnrnHenry Newman of OxfordrnMovement fame, becomernRoman Catholic, whichrnwe did in 1983.rnWhy is our pioneering monthly magazine stillrnunique? Because we’re still blazing the trail — with “attitude”rn(as Karl Keating says) and “cheek” (as Newsweekrnnoted). And we’re unusually cheap (see below).rnWe supply sparkling prose on behalf of HolyrnMother Church, and we’re still putting the heat on thernliberals, who must realize by now that they’re in hotrnwater with real Catholics.
