My experience at the NO

I know the priest there and he is very good and as traditional as you get for the NO. He actually veils the crucifix and statues during Holy Week which is the first time I have ever seen that in the NO.

Anyway, I brought my Little Office book with me so I could pray the office before Mass. Father was also praying the Office when I walked into the Church. When Father came out for Mass he started Mass by reciting the Angelus at the foot of the Altar (technically that was before Mass began.) I liked the new translation. It is a lot better than the old translation. Although there were a few people who were still saying the old responses. The only thing I didn't like was they had a woman reader reading the Epistle, the Psalm and the Alleluia. But if that's the worst thing then I can deal with it.

It was the Feast of St. Pau's conversion so it was nice. Also, in the Missal a few things I liked was instead of the "opening prayer" they call it the Collect which I like. Also, in the Missal they have little descriptions of the different parts of the Mass and before the Consecration they make sure to emphasize that this is the Sacrifice of Calvary. Obviously I am not going to stop going to the TLM...the NO Mass still feels so lacking and indeed it is lacking in the richness of the TLM, but at least I have the Graces of being able to receive Communion and worship God more than once a week. At least I found a Mass I can go to without my blood boiling from all the abuses.

imo, an informed Catholic, whether he/she styles him/herself orthodox or trad, can indeed assist a reverent weekday NO Mass to feed a spiritual hunger without putting the soul in danger.

Good for you.
