Don't get me wrong: this was no "clown mass" church. It was very tastefully done (although barren, like Protestant). The priest was no clown. The problem is deeper: the new mass is banal and devoid of meaning. There is no "God" there. It looks dated, a relic of the 1960s. The timless Mass is just that. Fresh as the day it was given to us by our Lord. The difference is remarkable! Even dressed up with some chant and incense and a bit of "Agnus dei" thrown in. The fact remains that the emperor has no clothes. I cannot believe I spent my entire youth in the New Church. No wonder I fell away for several years. Thank God I found the real Mass and the Faith of Ages.

This statement is pathetic.  Your puny little cross was too heavy, and it kept you from realizing the privilege of being in His presence and receiving Him.

You're absolutely right Salvation in bringing Jesus' words into this thread.
"Take care not to perform righteous deeds
in order that people may see them;
otherwise, you will have no recompense from your heavenly Father...."
