The Smoker Principle

The surest way I know of to spot a traditionalist at a Motu Proprio or FFSP parish. As opposed to meeting the new comers who want to be Catholic but are missing the nuances.

As with any rule there's exceptions, but if you want to meet the Catholics who live Belloc's ditty :

Wherever the Catholic sun doth shine,
There’s always laughter and good red wine.
At least I’ve always found it so.
Benedicamus Domino!


Look for the smokers.
