I understand that it is important to speak to the Priest, and then possibly the Bishop, if one encounters a Liturgical Abuse. But if there is an abuse of a fairly minor sort (say, the presence of Extraordinary Ministers for a situation that may not warrant them), does that invalidate the Mass in question? I ask because I do not know, and because I am terrified by the prospect of possibly never having attended a valid Mass in years (if this is the case, which i dearly hope it isn’t). I’m also worried by the possibility of the absolute war that will erupt if I suggest to my parents that we go somewhere for Mass other than the place we’ve gone for the last 18+ years. Please, can somebody ease my mind on this matter?
PS - There is an additional complication to this matter, namely that the Priests in my diocese are few and quite advanced in years, and may legitimately not be able to serve the Eucharist alone. I do not know, I have not investigated the matter thoroughly.
