Dialogue Mass: What's the point?
#16
Silent low mass is what really brought me and my husband to tradition, and that is really saying something because my husband has been an atheist for ten years and is now interested in Catholicism. We had been going to the high mass, a two hour trip, here and there. Then when he was deployed I was visiting family and they were close to the low mass and the first time I went that sealed the deal for me. As soon as we could after his homecoming I brought him to low mass with me and his reaction was identical. He just said "Why cant every mass be like THAT?!" And thats how one atheist became fascinated with liturgy... Now that my sensibilities have adjusted to traditional liturgy I can appreciate high mass, too.

I have noticed the eastern aversion to the idea of a silent mass. A Byzantine rite friend of mine was interested in seeing a TLM and I was trying to remember which Sundays were high and low and when I explained to him that some of the masses were silent he made an averse face and asked me to please find out when the high masses were because he did not want to go to a silent mass.

I, however, would be terribly sad if there were no more silent low masses.
