This is what obedience looks like
#26
Who is fighting solely for aesthetics?  Aesthetics are important, because they help raise our hearts to God, but every Catholic worthy of the label understands that what distinguishes the Catholic Mass from Protestant services is the re-presentation of Our Lord's sacrifice.  Surely nobody denies this is the key component.

That's why the parish linked in the OP is so impressive, because the priest understands this teaching clearly, and I think this must come through to his parishioners, even in the context of the Novus Ordo.  We all know the NO is ambiguous; as long as it continues to be offered, we need priests who are well catechized in the reality of the Mass, to make the Holy Sacrifice evident to everyone who assists at Mass, notwithstanding the NO's shortcomings.
