3.0 out of 5 stars Conservative, not Traditional, 3 Sept. 2009
By 
This review is from: The Blessed Virgin Mary in England Vol. 1: A Mary-Catechism With Pilgrimage to Her Holy Shrines (Paperback)
This and its companion volume present a Catholicism in line with the Institute of Christ the King and the Society of St. Peter...it is primarily a catechism that uses Marian theology/ancient English devotion to Mary as a foundation to leap off and teach this Conservative version of the Catholic faith. Very much follows JPII as the Marian Pope per say. Traditional Catholics with a capital 'T' - Society of St. Pius X by allusion only - are referenced infrequently, but when they are it is a straw man...the author takes a middle ground between what he calls 'Modernists' (which in his language means the extreme liberal crazies) and those dreaded 'Traditionalists' that don't even like the Dogma of the Assumption because it meant a change in teaching...so, as said, Hermeneutics of Continuity done very, very conservatively. For the most part though 90% of this book is fine and any Traditional Catholic - those who don't like Vatican II and the post-Conciliar Popes novelties - could use it...I use it as reference as it is useful - but not being Conservative in any way or form I would not use it for catechesis since it promotes following Vatican II and the rest upon the assumption the Pope can never do wrong ever, etc. etc. The first volume hasn't much on Marian shrines in England, so no use buying it for info on those...some parts on Marian devotion in England, but quite general.
