I'm attending my very first EF mass this weekend, and I'm very excited!
I studied Latin a bit my second year of college, and I do love the traditional ways of Holy Mother Church, but I also see the beauty of the OF since I've grown up with it.
I kneel for Communion at my OF parish, but get enough dirty looks for it. I've tried to be "normal" and stand, but my soul just cries out in protest! :shrug:
I would actually dare say there may be some orders that kneel as a matter of discipline even for the OF, but I don't have a source for this though. There are still a good number of traditional orders though that are in good standing with the Church to investigate if you feel drawn to the EF Mass.
Experience the TLM for a few Sundays and see where the Lord leads you. You may feel a little bit overwhelmed with it all at first. The first time just prayerfully experience it, recognizing and lifting up your heart in the parts of the Mass that you recognize, but don't worry if you can't follow along with everything that happens.
It took me about four TLM's before I could really actively follow along and know exactly what was happening, of course I have zero background in Latin though. Let us know how it goes.
You are in my prayers, God bless. :)
PS- Kneeling for Holy Communion at the Communion rail was one of the first things that drew me twoards the EF Mass, even though I can't recieve yet since I haven't yet recieved my initiatory Sacraments.
