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.
I’ve been to St. Agnes! You are so lucky! My daughter and I happened to be there (she lives in Harlem) on the feast day of St. Agnes. Unforgettable.
