Generally speaking, this refers to Roman Catholics who, while going along

with most of the modernization of liturgy since Vatican II, still cling to

some older forms of Roman Catholic practice, as Churching, Purgatory, or

even Limbo.

Conservatism is more extreme among older Catholics who live within an

ethnic group which is itself more conservative - Irish, Old French, old

Italian, etc.

While conservatives are generally agreeable to ecumenism, they are

inclined to feel that other religions should be absorbed by the Catholic

Church, rather than encouraging mutual compromise.
