I went to Assumption Grotto for Good Friday this year. We so completely fell in love with it that we are going back there this Sunday for 9:30am Mass, which is a Latin Novus Ordo Mass. I am so excited!!!
I am embarassed to say that Grotto on Good Friday was the first time I ever received Holy Communion while kneeling at a communion rail (though I have received kneeling at a kneeler, at a Church which uses intinction). I told my DH that after receiving in that way, I never want to receive any other way again. It was so powerful, I have difficulty putting words to it, but I just feel very drawn back to this Church.
I’ve also never been to any other Church where I have seen so many ladies with their heads covered. And not all older women either, many younger ladies as well. Something I’ve been working myself up to, I’m not ready just yet, but I’m getting there. Not sure what’s holding me back, but perhaps going to Grotto will be what puts me over the edge.
Anyway - no particular purpose for posting this other than to say that I’m excited, and perhaps ask if anyone else has been to a Latin NO, and what has been your experience?
