I have in the last month or so had to fulfill my Sunday obligation at the local parish. I seriously cannot stand going to the latter anymore.

Well, you're a better man than me since you still go (or maybe just have a higher threshold for induced insanity?). I can't observe an "obligation" to attend what I sincerely believe to be a demonically-inspired change in liturgy. Fortunately for my soul, I'm excused on the basis of N.O. attendance being a danger to my faith. Even more fortunately there is a Tridentine Mass offered on alternate weekends nearby.

At the risk of Jesuit casuistry, I only know that for *me* to miss Mass for that reason would be a sin—but that of course assumes a somewhat grating but not heinously offensive Mass. Others’ mileage may vary.

It is truly demonic. I can’t stand the architecture of these churches anymore....where they throw a couple of statues up somewhere as a mere sop to some some pretense of Catholicism, when meanwhile the whole focus of the structure is on itself “Look at me! I’m an interesting building!” rather than on the altar/tabernacle.
