That does seem like a good idea.  I'd imagine that there is a Tridentine Vespers and an NO Vespers, or something Vatican II-esque.  Any thoughts on that?

Peace....sometimes one can see/hear  irreverant things around us at the NO Mass and still be reverent ourself, however if you are taking children, they may pick up these habits.  For me, I was bothered by the low-cut tops on women with shorts taking communion out of the tabernacle to take to a home visit.  There was also too much joking and fooling around from the pulpit - too much like entertainment and comedy night.  I noticed people (not all) receiving communion and chewing it like bubble gum.  Drinking bottled water in the pews - which I can understand if someone is choking, but it became habitual and started spreading.  I noticed one girl once, after Mass was over and people left, to be sitting on the back portion of the pew with her feet on the seat - her mother was the guitar player, so nobody would say anything.  Too much talking out loud even when it is obvious before or after Mass that people are praying or adoring Jesus.  People being called up at smaller gatherings to help themselves take communion left on the altar while the priest is sitting in his seat.  Somehow, protestant hymns were slowly getting into the music ministry.  For some people, this type of thing can happen once and seem not so bad, however others see it increasing in several ways and start getting very annoyed.  This, along with the history and current events of the day in our Universal Church/Liturgy, bring it to a head and they want out.  This is brief, but you will get the point.  God bless, angeltime :heart:

I don't have any children that I'd be taking as of right now, though at some point I'd love to take my young godson.  Other than the lax dress code at every NO Mass I've been to, I've not noticed any of the other things, but I do not pay too much attention to the things around me at times.  I'll have start taking note of these kinds of things, see what might be happening with others attending the Mass.
