  12. The traditional Catholic would say that there has been language or liturgy introduced that departs from the constancy, integrity, and purity of the apostolic tradition in its organic development, not in such a way that dogma is contradicted or sin prescribed, but in such a way that dogmas are confused, errors invited, and deviations disseminated. The solution is not to throw overboard that which is ancient, venerable, and constant, but to judge as inadequate and dangerous that which departs from it, and to hold fast to the tried and true.
