As Perceptio starkly frames it:
Quite obviously, no achievable end. The dream of an early Roman liturgy is solely an empty academic question. And I am now moving firmly from theoria to praxis.
The need to have nearly universal access to the sacraments augurs strongly towards the largest communion. (I know some will take issue with this conclusion, and I have a few remaining issues myself.) Thus, when combined with my immovable commitment to a one-year lectionary of some standing, this further limits the viable possibilities to only two:
- Eastern rite Catholicism
- Ecclesia Dei Catholicism (locally, the FSSP)
I am already pretty familiar with the latter, so my individual forays, in the months to come, will be with the former. Prayers actively invited.
