“...experienced a childhood of ritual and beauty...”
I was born in 1960 and remember the Latin masses from when I was under five, and always felt unsettled and annoyed by the post V2 novus ordo thereafter.
Now I attend only the Latin mass. The novus ordo masses are dreadful and the Latin mass contains much more power against evil. I have the good fortune to be able to attend daily Latin mass in my diocese (Albany, NY).
t V2 mases were/are invalid;, although I understand where they are coming from.
You are absolutely right! When I can, I attend the Tridentine Mass at St. Agnes, my parish for many years. We get an excellent sermon too from the Church that gave us Fulton Sheen. What I also find so beautiful and touching is the obvious spirituality of so many of the attendees - many who appear to be Chinese. Quite different from some of the slobs who show up at a novus ordo Mass.
