To the replies in this post, thankyou. To Fergal, i must say im a little hurt by your comments. to claim i am considering switching from the NO mass to the TLM for “No good reason” is a little hurtful. First off, you dont know my situation. I have grown up with the new mass and would like to experience what the latin tridentine mass is all about, because my local church is very modernised with guiatars and singing of the eucharistic prayers and so forth.
Due to this, i moved to a parish in my town instead, a little longer to travel but now i get a very reverent, spoken mass instead. Also, the church is more traditional looking, unlike my local church which has the appearance of a doctors surgery!
However, im only 20. I have grown up on this version of the mass and i often, before the Motu Proprio, felt like i wanted something more, soemthing that made me feel even closer to God, i felt that this something was the TLM. The MP has given me the choice to go to the LM so why shouldnt I? Why should i not be curious? Why should I not worry about how to behave in parts of the mass? I simply wouldnt want to cause offence to those who have a close affiliation with the TLM, so would like to know what to do. To claim i am preoccupied with actions rather than the spiritual meaning is unfair.
To simplify, im going to atend the TLM to see what my forefathers did, and because i feel the mass i attend now is lacking somewhat spiritually. Yes, it may not be all guitars and singing, and it is very reverent, but i have a feeling i would appreicate the old latin mass a lot more, thats all. cant blame me for wanting to find out. yes, there is a degree of curiosity, but its spiritual curiosity:)
