Not long at all for such an important topic and far, far from being preachy. Thank you for taking the time and trouble to help me make some sense out of it. I don't know any "Trads". The women I see wearing veils or similar type head coverings at weekday Masses are probably better described as very devout Catholics rather than Trads. Some of them attend two Masses daily on weekdays and more on Sundays as well as all the other devotions. Other than exchanging a greeting before or after Mass, I don't really know them but as far as I can tell they don't go to EF Masses perhaps because there's really little opportunity for that here and, as far as I can tell, no great demand for it. Perhaps they would be "Trads" if the Latin Mass were available to them. It saddens my heart to think of our Church dividing into distinct groups similar to political divisions in the secular world.
