What should I do?
#21
I don't have a TLM in my area either.

I have and still have the problem of judging others during mass (dress communion in the hand and checking their text messages are just a few). It's hard to get out of that rut. Also when I pray before and after mass people are continually having loud conversations and it is very distracting. I hate to say, this is something I'm going to have to live with. These Catholis must have been poorly Chatechised or had poor examples. I didn't have good examples either but I was enlightened by some good Catholics. It's hard to be a devout Catholic today. I have voiced my concerns to the pastor. It's not that he doesn't notice, I think he has a fear of losing parishioners if he says something. 

 There is nothing I can say or do to change how people dress or act, it's beyond my power. I go to Mass and then practice the traditional Catholic Faith the rest of the time.

I have been attending a Byzantine Catholic Church more and more. I have never seen improper dress, excessive talking or heard a non traditional homily. Only problem is, it's an hour away. My grandparents on my father's side were Orthodox. My grandfather was Russian Orthodox and my grandmother was Ukranian Greek Catholic. My mothers side were Roman. I think I inherited something from the Orthodox side.
