Is there a TLM in your area?

Not a diocesan, FSSP, ICKSP, or SSPX TLM, no.  If you asked a big state person, they might have a different answer though.

Hmm, how about an eastern rite like Byzantine or Maronite?

Not to belittle your concern at all (as I agree with you), but I *wish* this was the worse problem we have at the NO. 

Today, the mass was announced as the "celebration of the mass", not the "Sacrifice of the Mass".  I knew right there what the rest of this NO was going to look, sound and feel like.  Then the deacon gave the homily.  His homily began, "There are many religions....." ( I knew I was in for a goody); then within minutes he informed the parishioners that "we all worship the same God"....and ....."that we're all destined for Heaven".

I am *this* close to not attending another NO mass, uh service. Not sure what that means for me because there is only a monthly Latin Mass I can attend, but I'm so sick of this crap.  This is not Catholic; this is Protestant.

Thank God for that one monthly Latin Mass.

You are not obliged to go to an unCatholic service. Better to go it home alone and to Mass once a month.

Traditio website has a directory of TLMs.

If I went to the Ukrainian Catholic Church, I may as well go to the Diocesan EF.

Two questions:

(1)  Have I not met my Sunday obligation if I don't go to "Mass"?  I get that I don't consider it Catholic, but how do I know it's cool to skip (the only TLM in my state is the monthly TLM I mentioned)?

(2) Re traditio directory: they actually don't have my parish listed.  How do I let them know?

If its not a Catholic liturgy then it doesn't fulfill your obligation right?

And we aren't required to participate in non-Catholic liturgies.

The heterodoxy and liturgical abuses alone exempt you from attendence.

Say it's the 1920s. You live in a remote village with only one Catholic Church you can go to, but the priest and laity constantly engage in irreverence, heterodoxy, and sacrilege at every Mass. You would be in good faith staying at home. It's like that today but its now universal.

re traditio, I'm not sure but you might email them the info on the Mass site, times, address, number, contact.

The title of this thread reminds of a Paul Simon song....."Still crazy after all these years...."

You aren't obligated to sit through blatant heresy preached from the pulpit. Get fo a different parish - TLM if possible, or at the least a N.O. where at least the faith isn't preached against.

I can remember wnen it was a novelty to have a watch with an alarm. That was useful so that someone could know if they could recieve Holy Communion or not because of the fast.
That type of behaviour is so inappropriate (talking on a phone during Holy Mass)
