I would like to see if anyone likes the New Mass as it is currently presented in the majority of parishes today.
Please do not talk about your exceptions to the rule as I know there are a few parishes out there that offer a very reverent NO Mass with Latin, Chant and strict adherence to the rubrics.
Please leave out all discussion to the TLM (as I have never been to one, that is for another discussion) and lets just discuss the NO.
This is something I have seen twice in my life here in California, and I did think it was wonderful. I have traveled extensively in California and see that is the exception here, most of the time it is quite horrible and I just close my eyes so I can concentrate on the beauty of the Sacrament.
I would like to know if anyone likes the Mass as it is presented in the majority of parishes here or would they like it different.
I seem to see the majority of people on this forum would like it more reverent and properly presented. On the flip side I see the progressives want it changed more to include more freedom to involve people and make it more spontaneous.
Which side predominates and does anyone like it the way it is right now?
I look forward to the input,
