It's not something I've ever felt before. I was mostly appalled at the disorganization of the entire Mass. We have a visiting priest who has been around for the past 2-3 months, but it has never been anything like it was today. As usual he rushed through the Eucharistic Prayer using the old translation at the words of consecration and then breaking the Host at the consecration. Then at Communion time the EMHC's had the Host distributed to them before the "Lord I am not worthy . . ." And we were ushered into the aisles, I think in response to the confusion, before this as well. Then we were all told to remain in our seats for the Communion prayer.
I've been through most of these abuses before, but what really got to me most of all was using the old translation for the Eucharistic Prayer. Was it a valid Mass if the priest is deliberately using the old translation?
And what should I do about my reaction? I don't want to feel anxious, but the situation about it seems so hopeless. Everybody seems happy about the situation or at worst indifferent. And then at the end after the announcement the priest uses as his personal joke time. I'm trying to stay confident and optimistic and charitable, but it's been a struggle. How do you deal with abuses during Mass, how do you respond?
