If a Mass rips you away from your faith then obviously you have no Faith. Now granted, there are some NO Masses that have downright heretical priests and I would avoid these Churches myself. But as long as you have an orthodox Holy Priest, even the NO Mass will give you graces. Obviously, if I had the choice I would go to the TLM over the NO...but since there is no Daily TLM around here, I am stuck. I am fortunate to have the TLM on Sunday's and Holy Days...but one of the biggest things is I want to complete the First Friday devotion.

Attacking someone else's faith seems a little aggressive. I feel like adding a clarification - like all the bishops that studied the Mass and that Ottoviani referenced in his "Intervention", the NO in its most rigorously faithful inception was/is an abomination. Since in the decades since its inception it has further fallen (much further) to such depths as to not even resemble a mass anymore, I would not grace it with that title. I can see how it can rip at one's faith in its most basic form - so much more when you compound exponentially with the common abuses of our day.

And you seem to stress that having a NO priest who is conservative is a plus? How does it change an "abomination"? Beside that you seem to imply that the majority of NO priests are scandalous in their behavior at Church - else why would you make a point of finding a "mostly traditional" priest? The Catholic Church is supposed to be ONE, and the liturgy and sacraments are to be as Christ directed them to be, certainly not at the whim of individual men. If you cannot see this, then it seems your faith has been ripped at as well in attending the subjective rites of men.

Thank you.  And you basically made the point better than I did--it's an abomination.  The Mass of all time is not to be conflated with subjective rites of men.  Much less should they be substituted for it.
