"To act against one's honestly erroneous conscience is to sin." (Archbishop Lefebvre, Religious Liberty Questioned, Angelus Press, p. 10)

Does this mean if I believe that the Novus Ordo is evil I cannot attain it in conscience?

No, that may be a problem for non-Catholics -- but as a Catholic you are obliged to form your conscience by the teaching of the Church (magisterium) and the certainty that the sacraments are Holy and spotless -- its indefectibility.

We are bound to correct it, but we still cannot act against it when it is in error.  If I believe Communion-in-hand is sinful even though the Church says it is not, and I receive Communion-in-hand, I've placed myself in a bad position.  Well, that's a question of discipline not doctrine, but you understand my meaning.
