My first Latin mass
#1
I finally did it today. I attended my first Latin mass ever (not counting if I was babe in my mothers arms). I quit making excuses and drove the 60 miles to the mass at the only parish in my entire diocese that has a Latin mass community. I went to the low mass, I figured start off slow. God has been calling me to do this for a long time and a friend kicked me in the butt last week and told me to quit putting it off. I must say it was so different than a NO mass. There was no music or singing at all, no sign of peace (thank you) and at the end of mass the priest just walked out with no music. For the first time since I was a boy I received communion on the tongue kneeling....it was so different but I totally loved it and feel such joy in me now. It felt so right. I loved that they had confession before mass, they prayed the rosary and at the end of mass the priest led us in three Hail Marys and the Salve Regina prayer plus the St Micheal prayer. It was awesome to say the least. I was scrambling at times figuring out what was going on but the missal had an English version of what the priest was doing so I think I'll catch on quick. I understand the low mass but the only thing I found odd was confession went on before and during mass. I never saw that before. I'm 47 and its hard to believe that was my first Latin mass. I may have opened Pandoras box because I now find myself wanting to go back next week to the high mass and experience it. It wasn't a bad drive, 90% of it was on the interstate and took about an hour. I feel like I discovered plutonium.... ;D
