How bad would a Novus Ordo Mass have to be to justify not attending?

Where is this defined?

There thousands of reasons to doubt the validity of any sacrament. In fact, without faith, we can easily doubt apostolic succession. Do I really know for sure any priest is ordained by a real priest, and was that priest ordained by a real priest, etc.

So, without faith, it is all doubt.

The opposite is defined as legal principle since the Roman Law: Impedimentum dubium, impedimentum nullum. Doubtful obstacle, no obstacle. You must have clear evidence for rejection. This is the same principle that everyone is innocent, until proven guilty.
