Licit to attend weekly NO Masses with abuses?

There is plenty of evidence available to show that not only is the New Mass illicit, but it is immoral, and is indeed is a sin to attend it. It is not so much a matter of the abuses that (do indeed) go on during a new mass, it is the prayers of the New Mass itself (and the lack therof).

Again I dont mean to offend or cause a fight or something heated, but in fraternal charity and with the greatest respect for you I have to point that out.

God bless

I've read the Ottaviani Intervention and while I agree with the points made in the study, I do not recall the study ever saying the new liturgy is illicit or immoral or a sin to attend. Can you point me to where Ottaviani's study stated these conclusions? I'm not asking about Davies or others. I am asking about Cardinal Ottaviani's study. The points in the study are valid and reveal why the New Mass is not as fitting and some of the prayers emphasis secondary aspects of the reality of the Sacrament while downplaying the primary aspects but I cannot remember it concluding to attend is immoral or a sin or that the liturgy is/would be illicit.

Your view, dear brother, is not the view of the Church and while the New Mass is indeed inferior, it is extreme to say it is immoral or a sin.

My perspective is that I attempt to find the best New Mass I can attend during the week. The Oratory here has a pretty good one that I can endure. Look around, find a more solemn and better New Mass to attend. There has to be some better option for you.

Pax Christi tecum.
