The problem of the sacrifice before the Sacrifice was always an issue. The answer is verbalized by St Paul from the Sext for the office of the Precious Blood

Heb 9:13-14
If the blood of bulls and of goats, and the ashes of an heifer, sprinkling the unclean, sanctifieth to the purifying of the flesh, how much more shall the Blood of Christ, Who through the Holy Spirit offered Himself without spot to God, purge our conscience from dead works, to serve the living God?

The moral is, that even an over 1000 years old liturgical text requires benevolent interpretation, if one want he can find negativees in it, as you do with the New Mass.

We are fallible and ambivalent. This is why we need the living Magisterium, which under Christ's guidance interprets the unchanged  truth of the revelation for our situation, how it fit to the spots emphasized today.

The New Mass found it easier to avoid this problem, instead of defending the absolute necessity to recall the Old Testament's sacrifices.
