I have a favor to ask those of you who did NOT grow up with the older form of Mass.
If sometime along the way you decided to check out the older form of Mass, the "Tridentine" Mass, I am interested in your experience and reactions.
- Were you "hooked"?
- Are you hooked now but it took a while?
- Were you indifferent ("What’s the big deal?")
- Were you put off and don’t want to go back?
- What was it that captured you?
- What repelled you?
- Do you go now? Often? Exclusively? Rarely?
Folks, I am not so much interested in discussion between you readers in this particular thread. I simply want to give space to those who discovered the older form of Mass.
I guess this could also leave space for those who grew up with the older form and then rediscovered it after many years and now either love it, hate it, or something in between.
Laypeople and priests alike!
I am really hoping people who never knew the older Mass will post their comments.
If you disagree with someone (or agree), don’t jump in to react.
Just let people speak their piece.
Okay, folks! Get to it!
UPDATE: I am going to highlight points of special interest to me in RED.
