Catholics and Lutherans consider their commonalities. 


Let's see:

Belief in the same Triune God,  Similar beliefs about Baptism, belief in the Theotokos, there's more.....

And now with the NO mass, they worship the same.

There is no reference of the Eucharist being a sacrifice in Lutheran Liturgies, and at the beginning of some Lutheran Liturgies there is a service of corporate confession and absolution, which is clearly not standard Catholic practice.  Besides, the Lutheran hymns are much nicer than alot of the NO hymns....

You're right , there is still enough different to make most Catholics think that all is just fine with the NO.  However, it does look mighty similar to an Anglican service.

And St Pius of Trent, correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm pretty sure the word "sacrifice" is rarely used in the prayers of the NO Mass...and it's not even used with the same meaning as in the TLM.
