Tommy Rosica says that you "traditional, faithful, orthodox Catholics throw out words and have no idea what those words mean"

Our good friend Barona did his Friday penance by watching the entire video so you won't have to. If you visit over at Toronto Catholic Witness you can watch the snippet of it with this most wonderful quote by one of the interviewees, Tommy Rosica.
"Those claiming to be...traditional, faithful, orthodox Catholics throw out words and they have no idea what those words mean."
Logically then, of course, it would follow that if one does know what those words mean, then one is not a "traditional, faithful orthodox Catholic."

I fully agree.

Rosica opens his mouth and, as usual, chaos emerges. What an irony, the traditionalists (Catholics with roots and continuity remaining faithful to the Faith of our Fathers) are the ones who are far more careful in how they use words, again because their vocabulary is Catholic, united with what has come down through the ages. Rosica and his lot worship at the temple of Gregory Baum and team Bergoglio, what else can we expect?

His such a hateful, judgmental man now isn't he...."0 those "traditional, faithful orthodox Catholic "doctors" of the church for the past 2000 years had no idea what their words meant." Speaking of Words, my words fail me when i think of all the Judases in the church. Still our lord promised he will be with us until the end of time, and so it is that we have Cardinal Burke, Cardinal Sarah, Bishop Schneider and many more who have become the voice of our lord..God Bless traditional, faithful orthodox Catholic Holy Apostles.

Tommy Rosica is a man of modernity, he has studied postmodernism, and has consequently done away with the oppressive patriarchy of ages past. Language and the Catholic Church are two key instruments of this oppression.
Erudites such as Tommy Rosica have deconstructed the old patriarchy and have embarked on the journey of creation - that of a brave new world, where we are all co-creators. Language is key here. As long as a word can mean anything, we can pile up interpretation upon subjective interpretation, while nothing definite is ever said. Dogma is the evil enemy of such a process of re-construction, co-creation, enemy of the "god of surprises". Logic and objective truths must be done away with. We need more feeling, more sentiment, a feminine touch! Can you do the balancing act on the edge of uncertainty every single day? - Brave Tommy Rosica can, and he does not have any respect and patience for any backward and cowardly creature, who is not doing this dance. They are dinosaurs, lifeless, predictable dinosaurs. These are the people who can not, just to name one example, appreciate the contributions of sodomites to the Church. To them sodomites can never become virtuous lovers, exemplary selfless parents, saviours of the Church. If we let unsophisticated, under-educated dinosaurs have their say, sodomites will forever be called upon to repent, rather than celebrated as the saviours of the Holy Church (as one cardinal of India is already announcing).
Tommy Rosica has long ago outgrown Jesus Christ, who was simply a product of His time and place. Had He lived to day, He would know that sodomites (gays - Tommy would say) were born this way! So are pedophiles! Let us dance and celbrate diversity and unity!

Rosica and his cronies just love to tell us how superior they [think] they are. Egotistical fakes who think no-one could possibly understand the Bible except themselves. I dare say they would argue with the Holy Apostles given the chance.We do know our Holy Bible mr rosica..that is why we know you are a fake, pride-filled, self-exposed heretic. I feel like i am watching an old gangster movie from the 1930's. The Lord will make them drink a cup full to the brim of their own life-long treachery if they do not repent.It will be very bitter indeed.

According to Graubner, Francis described affection for the old Latin Mass as a “fashion.” (Jan Graubner is the Archbishop of the Czech Republic.)

“It is just necessary to show some patience and kindness to people who are addicted to a certain fashion,” the pope reportedly said. “But I consider greatly important to go deep into things, because if we do not go deep, no liturgical form, this or that one, can save us.”

Pope Francis describes the Vatican II Mass as follows:

"Let us give thanks to the Lord for what he has done in his church in these 50 years of liturgical reform. It was really a courageous move by the church to get closer to the people of God so that they could understand well what it does, and this is important for us: to follow Mass like this.”

So, it's not really a surprise that the people under his authority follow their boss. And of course, we also know that people like Rosica are feeding this Pope with their anti-Catholic agenda.

In recent times Catholics have been exposed to words coming out of the Vatican that they never heard before ,and having discovered their meaning never want to hear again ,coprophila been one of them ,in some cases ignorance really is bliss .

"Language could invite, it could attract, it could repel, and it could reject. ... I firmly believe that with the correct language, we can accomplish much more than what the incorrect language. ... and many people don't know how to use the correct language, they don't know what words mean,. Those claiming to be traditional, faithful, orthodox Catholics throw out words but they have no idea what those words mean."

This clearly shows that today's church is trying too hard to be popular, to be accepted to the point that it has to use "advertorial" language to attract people. Priests don't care anymore about what Jesus wants, even though, it's really clear that Jesus told us that our church will suffer persecution and Jesus also tells us that these persecution is inevitable, because the devil is the ruler of this world. People in this video didn't even mention bringing people to the TRUTH, so they can go through the narrow gate to SALVATION. All they care about is to get more people with "language" that "attract people." The people in the video only cares about cosmetics not the essence.

"We possibly couldn't have this conversation even twenty years ago."

You're definitely right, because back then, we care more about the truth, not the language because it's very shallow, superficial and misleading.

Quoting CCC 392:
Scripture speaks of a sin of these angels. This "fall" consists in the free choice of these created spirits, who radically and irrevocably rejected God and his reign. We find a reflection of that rebellion in the tempter's words to our first parents: "You will be like God." The devil "has sinned from the beginning"; he is "a liar and the father of lies".

How does the devil lie? By using THE LANGUAGE.
