All I can say is amen to this from Saint Corbinian’s Bear:
What happened in the decades following Fr. Peyton’s rally is the same thing that is happening right now. There’s a precise word for it: evil. “Bitter clingers,” the old men of Vatican II have sunk their cold, yellow talons into the Church, determined to do as much damage as possible before death brings their sorry careers to a welcome close.
When they’re gone, the faithful must pick up whatever remains of their Church — a pitiful remnant, to be sure — and reclaim it. Everything that marks the modern Church must go up in a bonfire of the vanities. Ugly, modern churches must face the wrecking ball. Protestantized Masses must be replaced with the old form. Homosexuality and modernism must be thoroughly rooted out of seminaries. Let’s see the Index of Forbidden Books make a come-back. Demand that Catholic universities be Catholic. Oh the howls will be music to the Bear’s ears! Let’s do a thousand different things to build a fortress Church that does not engage the world in endless, whining “dialogue,” but marches forth to conquer it.

There is a great scene in the movie Lawrence of Arabia:
Feisal: In the Arab city of Cordova, there were two miles of public lighting in the streets when London was a village…
Lawrence: Yes, you were great.
Feisal: …nine centuries ago…
Lawrence: Time to be great again, my Lord.
Time for the Catholic Church to become great again, before too long becomes too late.
