Is it inherently scandalous to attend a Novus Ordo Mass?
#11
If the priest is in good standing with his bishop and he is in communion the Holy Father and he does what they recognize is appropriate then he is not doing anything that is schismatic.
As far as the Novus Ordo, since you recognize its validity then I would ask you to remember that we come to mass to be with Jesus. Jesus is teh reason for the Holy Mass. He is truly present in the Holy Eucharist. It is to be with Jesus that we go to Mass.
There was a situation in the life of St Teresa of Avila where there was a priest who was living in sin. This priest was at enmity with God. Jesus spoke to her from the Blessed Sacrament and said that His love for us is so great that He willing allowed that priest who was His enemy to hold Him and allowed Himself to pass through that priest's hands in order to be with us.
