You can't appreciate the Novus Ordo Mass properly until you can look at it with fresh eyes after having been away for some months. Then all the things that you had somehow learned to tolerate when you still attended appear as truly intolerable as they really are.

Thank God my chapel is having Ash Wednesday tonight.

Unfortunately, we do not have ashes at any traditional church that I know of. We are planning to go to the NO at the parish where we attend the indult. This will be our first NO Mass since last October (which was a funeral).

You've said it all! I honestly -- and I am not just trying to rag on the N.O. -- felt that I was attending at a different religion. I went to a wedding in a protestant church a few years ago. It felt the same way strange. A previous poster commented that Lent was not the time to criticize other Catholics for going to N.O. I disagree. Now more than ever we must pray to our Lord for a restoration of the Catholic Faith and the Catholic Mass. I think all the ills in the world would begin to turn around if this happened. Sounds naive, but I am convinced.
