I ran across this quote from Jeroslav Pelikan on a friend's page on Facebook and thought it was challenging and particularly interesting....I wonder, however, sometimes what "tradition" and "traditionalism" really are...
"Tradition is the living faith of dead people to which we must add our chapter while we have the gift of life. Traditionalism is the dead faith of living people who fear that if anything changes, the whole enterprise will crumble." - Jaroslav Pelikan
But, much food for thought in this little morsel!
