Tridentine Mass Update
Wow. I actually pulled myself out of bed and arrived about five minutes late for Mass. My buddy Matt was there with my own Missal and I was set to go. Apparently this was a High Mass so the priest prayed privately during portions of the Mass. I learned a lot of Latin and was able to read about 35% of it due to my Spanish background. Anyways, I came away with a better appreciation of the solemnity of Mass. I still think the Novus Ordo Mass in the vernacular can be just as good, but many priests in my Archdiocese take creative license during Mass. Yes, I am returning for a second time this upcoming weekend. I am going to remain at my original parish still because of the many friendships and activities I am involved in (parish life). Our faith is simply awesome! For more information on the Tridentine Mass click here, here, and here.

I see from another post that you went to Annunciation.
The Tridentine mass was not adopted at Trent; rather, this form of mass changed little since the 9th century. Trent simplified things -- basically cut down on the number of options for some prayers.
If you were to go to the 11:00 mass, the so-called "Novus Ordo", you'd see that the differences between the current mass as said in Latin and the so-called Tridentine mass do not appear to be so great as when you compare the Tridentine with what you find at most parishes which use Hagen-Haas music.
Ohoh Tito, you're becoming one of those.
I like both the Novus Ordo and the Tridentine Mass.
Thanks! I have sooo much to learn. Our faith has so much great depth that one can be paralyzed by all that is out their to read and participate in.
Hey! I am 'one of those' Catholics too. That's frightening (I think). I won't get blackballed or anything bad for attending more than one type of Mass each week will I?
Something I've done in the past that I could do again: a little series on liturgy rites.
We started off with a video of the Tridentine, then a visit to Annunciation, and then a discussion of Vatican 2, "Sacrosanctum Concilium" in light of that experience. Then visit a couple of the Eastern Catholic Churches in town (Maronite and Byzantine).
Glad to hear it was a spiritual experience for you. Please just remember... Mass isn't suppose to be "fun", it's suppose to be "joyful".
Pax Domini Sit Semper Vobiscum, Frate.
Mass isn't suppose to be "fun", it's suppose to be "joyful".
That's a great message for the "liturgists" around the archdiocese who feel the need to make mass more fun for youth, young adults, or the general congregation. All this clapping, holding hands, profane music, etc. is too much "fun" for a solemn sacrificial celebration.
...I'm going streaking the moment I see a liturgical dancer jump out in the middle of Mass.
