I have read that there is a distinction between the extrinsic and intrinsic value of the Mass...both I will briefly mention in parenthesis.

If we consider the intrinsic value of the Mass (the Sacrifice of Jesus Christ and the offering of Himself to the Father), we can say that the Novus Ordo and the Traditional Mass are infinitely pleasing to God. But in regards to the extrinsic value of the Mass (the specific prayers, the reverence, the decorum, the music, etc.) can we not say that the Traditional Mass is objectively more pleasing to God in this respect. If this is true, with regards to the extrinsic value of both Masses, then would it be an exaggeration to say that the offering of Cain and Abel is analogous here? What is your opinion?

Also, it would seem that if it is analogous, then this has major implications for one's conscience. Right?
