Q&A

What do I say to someone who claims Tradition as his reason for rejecting the Church’s authority?

Question:

I have a friend who is flirting with radical Catholic traditionalism. Sometimes he talks about modernist heretics taking over the magisterium and betraying Catholic Tradition. He has canned arguments about things like religious freedom and dialogue, universalism, liturgical norms, and so forth. He says he can&#039;t be in schism since he&#039;s just clinging to Catholic Tradition. What can I say to him?
