is it a mortal sin to attend the NO?
Only if it's grave matter, done voluntarily with full knowledge.

Tautology much?

Not unless you belive the Gates of Hell have prevailed over the Church.

It's just this question is unanswerable.
A better question is "Is attending the Novus Ordo grave matter?"

This question isn't unanswerable.

St. Thomas Aquinas, in his Summa, often would respond to the question "Is x action a mortal sin?" either affirmatively nor negatively.

I don't think it would be any sin, mortal or venial, to attend the Novus Ordo celebrated in Latin, with neither EMHCs nor Communion in the hand, etc.

I think it is probably a venial sin to attend the Novus Ordo in the current English translation, with both EMHCs and Communion in the hand, etc. when to do so is not necessary to fulfill one's obligation.

At least when speaking of sins generically, St. Thomas Aquinas would simply say that "x action is a mortal sin." He did not find the need to say that "x action is a mortal sin provided knowledge and consent."

"Therefore drunkenness, properly speaking, is a mortal sin" (Summa Theologiae II-II, Q. 150, Art. 2).

"Therefore it is manifest that perjury, of its very nature, is a mortal sin" (Summa Theologiae, II-II, Q. 98, Art. 3).

"Therefore to be disobedient to the commandments of God is a mortal sin, because it is contrary to the love of God" (Summa Theologiae II, Q. 105, Art. 1).

Even the modern Catechism of the Catholic Church does the same thing: "Thus the extermination of a people, nation, or ethnic minority must be condemned as a mortal sin" (2313).
