And that does not sound like repentance
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.

Please, don't paint the entire NO church with a broad brush like that. There are still people who use Lent as a time of atonement and repentance. There are still priests and bishops who stress prayer and penance and abstinence.
There are Catholics out there who don't want to hear about it, but there are still many left.

**And that does not sound like repentance**
I am talking about the tone of your posts. Just as in vocal communication, more is communicated via the tone of the message than sometimes the words.
