My observations on my first Traditional Latin rite Mass further on in this thread refer to the low Mass. After having attended several low Masses, I was going to post a summary of my first solemn high Mass in this thread as well. However, I was too overwhelmed by the experience of the solemn high Mass to put it into words.
This thread now serves as a "from-the-beginning" account of my discovery of, and gradual conversion to, the Diocesan-approved Traditional Latin rite Mass of the PRIESTLY FRATERNITY OF ST. PETER (FSSP) here in our city.
Other threads related to this include Universal Indult / Guarantee and Questions About the Novus Ordo as well as other topics on The Ratzinger Forum.
There is a parish in my city that holds a traditional Latin Mass every day of the week, and has done for many years, with full Diocesan approval. (No, it is not with the schismatic SSPX group).
I have never been to a Latin rite Mass before. I have always wanted to see what one is like, and I decided today that I will visit this parish tomorrow (Monday) morning to see what the Latin Mass is like.
I know that so many people are passionate about the Latin Mass one way or the other, so tomorrow I will see what all the discussion is about!
