Fortunately, God will be the judge of people's hearts, not you.

I truly resent your categorizing all those who attend a Mass that does not meet "your" parameters. It is as if you are slapping your fellow Catholics in the face. And that does not sound like repentance and belief to me.

Were you judging?

Sorry buddy, I didn't create the Mass of All Time. That would be Christ and His disciples. I just follow it, as demanded by all popes prior to John XXIII.

Your "Mass" was concieved by Cardinal Bugnini.

If the choice is between the two, I think it is a pretty easy choice. Why do you attack people for adhering to the 2,000 year history of God's Own Church?

Didn't you read my post? The priest at this N.O. "Mass" made no mention at all of Lent being a time of repentance. It is simply a time "to grow in our personal relationship with Jesus." That's it. That's Lent at the Mass I attended. So...do I listen to him or to my Traditional Priest, who spent the entire sermon last week on repentance and self-denial and the primacy of love for God over love for ourselves (which is the basis of sin)? You are making my argument for me: I should concentrate on repentance and ignore the polyanna nonsense eminating from the crumbling Novus Ordo establishment.
