This is what obedience looks like

Yes, that's what I'm saying.  That's not controversial; we all agree on that don't we?

The NO is ambiguous and it's not going anywhere anytime soon.  As long as this remains the case, proper catechesis will have to (and can, I think) compensate for much of this.  In my experience, much of what passes for catechesis these days -- both for children born into the faith and for adult converts -- is sorely lacking.

A priest like the one in the OP would make evident the reality of the Sacrifice -- in his sermons, by showing proper reverence to the Eucharist in various ways (e.g. promoting Communion kneeling on the tongue, not using Eucharistic Ministers, etc.), and by promoting proper catechesis for everyone in the parish (in First Communion classes, Confirmation classes, etc.).  I understand the importance of having a liturgy that is clear about what is really happening -- that's why I assist at the TLM! -- but the importance of well-formed priests shouldn't be understated.
