Evelyn and Dietrich

Regarding the change from the old Mass to the new; the old rituals to the modern; the old catechism and code of canon law to the conciliar:

“We had looked upon them (proponents of liturgical change) as harmless cranks who were attempting to devise a charade of second-century habits. We had confidence in the abiding Romanita of our Church. Suddenly we found the cranks in authority.”
– Evelyn Waugh

“The drivel of heretics both priests and laymen, is tolerated; the bishops tacitly acquiesce to the poisoning of the faithful. But they want to silence the faithful believers who take up the cause of orthodoxy.”
- Dietrich von Hildebrand, The Devastated Vineyard
