That is a good distinction.

Is it acceptable for a priest to advise lay Catholics that, if the Novus Ordo is the only Mass available, they should stay home and substitute an appropriate amount of prayer and scripture readings instead of attending that Novus Ordo Mass?

I'm not asking this question as a "gotcha".  I believe that even a reverent, ad orientem Novus Ordo has some issues, but I always figured it was better to go than not to go, and I'm wondering what reasoning justifies the position.

I think you will find lots of opinions here on that, so perhaps a different thread is better, but it has been discussed at length here before. Some of us think it is fine, some would object. That's usually where it all ends, and we draw a stalemate.

It is the SSPX official position that one should avoid the Novus Ordo even if it be the only Mass accessible because it presents a possible and proximate danger to the Faith in most cases. Again, that does not consider specific instances where it might rarely be made so orthodox by the celebrating priest that this danger is no longer present. The merits of that position, though, I think ought to be discussed in a different thread.
