Jul 28, 2020

taste and with it, its potential both to retain the trustworthy or to
evangelize the infidel. The issue precedes Vatican II: within the
Tridentine Nineteen Fifties, many Catholics, longing for mainstream
respectability, had already adopted a bourgeois spirituality.

In his first e book, The Prodigal Church: Restoring Catholic
Custom in an Age of Deception, Brandon McGinley requires
Catholics to return to the essence of the religion, slightly than to a
earlier period of Catholic “success”, and so discover artistic methods to
restore a strong and evangelical Catholic tradition within the unknown
years to return.
