Ronald Columbo notes that the Tridentine Catholic Mass is an entry way into a much more broad practice of the Catholic faith, and proposes a new global traditionalist con-fraternity to tie together Tridentine mass supporting Catholic communities worldwide.

“Fixed, mandatory disciplinary guidelines, as were historically promulgated by the Church, lent themselves to a culture of discipline and fostered a respect for Church authority. Contrary to what many progressives in the Church had taught, lowering the disciplinary bar does not increase discipline, but diminishes it. Thus, modern mainstream Catholicism, which is marked by a wholesale abdication of Church authority, suffers a decline of discipline (among both the clergy and the laity). In sum, authority not exercised leads to authority not recognized, and a community lacking recognized authority soon finds itself lacking in discipline. Without a central, fixed arbiter of rules concerning traditional customs and practices, is this same specter of anarchy what the future holds for traditional Catholicism?”
