Fr Serpa on the call in show last night addressed choosing which Masses to attend. It seemed to me he suggested that we should attend different Masses to find the one to our liking. I wondered if anyone else listened to the show last night. I wish I had the program so I could review what was said exactly. Always an excellent program with excellent advice.
My question is, to what degree is it good or virtuous to "shop around" for Masses as opposed to attending the Mass that is in the neighborhood we live in.
My exerience is, I have been in basically one parish my whole life, in a small town with a lot of family ties. There have been times when I thought the liturgical style was awful (1980's), but I always stuck with it because I am committed to the parish community. Perhaps those who live in large cities or more impersonal situations have different experiences.
Let's not get into comparing Masses please, just the question at hand.
