I attend the Tridentine/Gregorian Rite Mass. However there are occasions that I need to attend the Novus Ordo. My question is why should I continue to go the Tridentine Mass where reverence and composure are required / demanded by the nature of the Mass ? That is, one can attend a Novus Ordo mass in our parish wearing gym shorts and a tee shirt with sandals, talk during the mass, generally not pay any attention to the mass and fit in rather nicely. At the same time the priest sits through the majority of the Mass while the ladies do the readings. There are many abuses as well, however, I am told that one is still receiving the body and blood of our Lord and Savior, which I firmly trust and believe. So then the question is why should I bother to wear a tie and prepare my self for the Tridentine/Gregorian Rite Mass when I can go to the Novus Ordo in my workout clothes and be irreverent and relaxed like a country club atmosphere and still receive the body and blood ?
