Is it inherently scandalous to attend a Novus Ordo Mass?
#10
As for the NO being a different rite, I do agree with you there. However that is not the issue. Its defective nature does not make illicit, it is a licit rite promulgated by the Church, it's a sad reality, but it is reality. Every rite is going to defective in some way of signifying the Holy Mysteries of the Eucharist, you can argue whether the Old Latin or Byzantine rite does a better job at that for example. All rites have their defects, the NO is significantly more defective in signifying the inner sacrificial reality present at the Mass, but this does not make it illicit.
