How does the "old Catholic" differs from a contemporary Catholic(Vatican II or a traditiona list(Vatican I only)?

The earlier version is truly Catholic, as the Church was, for the past 2,000 years, while the newer version is a very much a watered down, weaker and less powerful "Catholic Lite" - more in line with Protestant beliefs and practices. Church leadership is also sorely lacking and corruption is much more widespread. (Pardon the obvious pun.)Source(s): www.askmeaboutgod.org

The contemporary Catholic seeks a more ecumenical approach toward other Christian churches, whereas the traditionalist are more dogmatic about following the old doctrines and traditions. They believe that the only true church is the Catholic Church. They consider those who are non-Catholics to be Christian, but that they are living in error and without the fullness of the faith. Ironically, many people within those other Christian churches hold the same perspective toward the Catholic Church.

There are Catholics with very traditionalist views who refuse to support Vatican ll and scream about the "horrors" of altar girls and rage about the "outrageous" practice of taking communion in the hand instead of directly on the tongue.

Catholicism is the One True Faith. A person can know many truths about God and His Church by reciting the rosary each day with care.

There is no such distinction of "old Catholic" versus "contemporary Catholic" within the Catholic Church. We are all Catholics. Your delineation of camps before and after Vatican II suggests that you are talking about Catholics versus Sedevacantists. The latter does not recognize any of the popes since the death of Pope Pius XII in 1958. Because of this they are not in communion with the Catholic Church.
Also, there is the difference between the major ways that the mass is celebrated. The Novus Ordo and the Latin mass. The latter is more traditional because it is pretty much the same kind of mass that was exclusively celebrated before Vatican II. But those who attend the Latin Mass are no different from the members who attend the Novus Ordo mass. Like I said, we are all still one holy and apostolic Catholic Church.

The old Catholics didn't worship Trump.
Contemporary ones do.
