But this is the struggle I have.  If we question whether it is the work of God, then aren't we questioning its validity implicitly? 

Just like I said earlier. Validity and the other ritualistic elements are separate. The validity is down to the consecration and that's it. Since the new mass has valid words for consecration it is a valid mass. The rubrics and organization of the ritual might be horrible as I agree but the Mass is valid, and the Catholic Church demands we attend a valid Catholic Mass on Sundays and holy days.
