Liturgical abuse can be really bad. I've been tempted to walk out on several occasions because I just couldn't stand it but managed to force myself to stay and offer it up. I normally don't take communion in such situations because it doesn't seem right.
Have you ever left during Mass? Can that be justified?
A wise man once told me, "No humility, no holiness, no holiness, no heaven." and those are words that I take to heart dearly and try living by. With that being said, I don't find any humility whatsoever in what you just posted. What seems to be the problem in the first place? you don't like the priest? you don't like the priests homily? You force yourself to stay there and offer it up? what does that mean? There are many spiritual gifts and many things that we need to do, such as love, charity and many others things, but I believe that it all starts with humility. Jesus didn't find equality with God something to be grasped at, instead He humbled himself and became a slave among men. He became a slave of love, even unto death, death upon a cross. Mary tells us - "I am the humble handmaid of the Lord." Sacred Scripture also tells us "The humble will be exalted and the exalted will be humbled." Let that sink in for a minute, God humbled Himself. I think that you need to start pointing a finger back at yourself my friend, and pray for the gift of humility. I'll leave you with a couple of quotes from some Saints of the Catholic Church, and how importantly they viewed the true gift humility.
"It seems to me that humility is truth. I do not know whether I am humble, but I do know that I see truth in all things."
Therese De Lisieux
"Wouldst thou comprehend the height of God? First comprehend the lowliness of God. Condescend to be humble for thine own sake, seeing that God condescended to be humble for thy sake too, for it was not for his own."
Augustine Of Hippo
