To see what people are talking about. I have a few different options
All are a short 1 hour drive from my home:
3 parishes that have been offering a Latin Mass with permission from their local bishops. I do not know if they are TLM or NO.
2 parishes that offer a TLM, but are not listed in their diocese directory.
1 parish that offers a Latin Mass, but doesn’t advertise it, is associated with the diocese, but won’t do things like marry a Catholic to a Protestant. So I don’t know if they are obedient to Rome or their bishop, just that they are not excommunicated.
So my questions are:
How do I decide which parish to attend?
Is it acceptable to bring young children to a Latin Mass?
Do I have to understand what is happening for it to be a beautiful spiritual experience?
How do I figure out what they are saying and what is happening?
I am pregnant again and kind of limited as far as my wardrobe goes. What is the usual dress code for Latin Masses?
Thanks in advavnce for your advice.
