One Trad, Two Trads, Mad Trads, Rad Trads...
A Brief Guide to identifying "Traditionalists"
The "Traditional" Catholic is one who appreciates the pre-Vatican II "Tridentine" Mass. They do however come in many shapes and sizes.
The Standard List:
Trad: Traditional Catholic, also may be referred to as a Traddy
*update: Also Trid or Triddy in reference to the Tridentine Mass
Mad Trad: Hates VatII. Believes that it is the root of all current Church problems. Typically Mad Trads were born before the Council and are angry that it stole their beloved Mass. Occasionally, younger Mad Trads who are enraged over the loss of their birthright may be found.
Rad Trad: Hates VatII. May seriously question the validity of the Novus Ordo- or at least individual Masses. Their solution to the problem is a radical switch back to the pre-Vatican II days and eradication of the Novus Ordo. They are nearly always, though not necessarily Mad Trads.
Neo Trads: Accepting of VatII. This segment is rapidly growing among younger Catholics around the college age. They often disapprove of the anger and radicalness of prominent figures in the "Traditionalist Movement." Nevertheless, they prefer the Tridentine over the Novus Ordo. Often seek more gentle and creative ways to increase awareness of the Tridentine Mass among their generation.
*update Glad Trads: Simliar to NeoTrads. Typically those born after VatII who grew up in Novus Ordo parishes and later discovered that the Tridentine liturgy is alive, thriving and acessable.
Others of Less Repute:
Sedes: "Sede Vacantes" Believe the Seat of Peter is vacant and that the current pope is an anti-pope. They have been known to elect their own anti-popes.
Indies: Attendants of "independent" parishes/chapels which offer the Tridentine Mass without the bishop's permission. Their standing with the church is often rather sketchy.
SSPXers: Followers of the Society of St. Pius X - who we all hope will be fully brought home soon!
Feeneyites: Followers of Fr. Leonard Feeney - best known because of the St Benedict Center and their rejection of salvation outside of baptism by water with in the Catholic Church
*update: Schisies/Schisos: Schismatics.
