First Novus Ordo.... so confused.
#18
I actually had an opposite experience this weekend... due to some family issues, we ended up going to the 5 p.m. mass at a local NO parish where we haven't been in a couple of years - the last time we went there for 5pm it was a "Life Teen" Mass ... nuf said... you can imagine my shock/awe when we walked in and the first hting my 15 year old said was Wow Mom.... INSENCE!!!  We found that they now had a proper altar, not a danish-modern dinner table and podium with the Tabernacle moved from an alcove to front and center, raised above the altar on another ornate pedestal.. candles on the altar and proper altar cloths, not somethign that looked like burlap... and most of all, it was actually QUIET when we walked in about 10 minutes before mass.  There is now a Legion of Mary and they had May crowning after Mass, complete with procession, rosary recitation and fellowship afterwards.  I can't begin to tell you how impressed I was with the turn around, and the reverence with which the Mass was celebrated...  I would suggest not judging all NO parishes the same... there may be some moving in the right direction!
