I get it now...

From the comments section of another blog...

Following the ordination of four priests in the Diocese of Kalamazoo, the youngest of the four celebrated his first Mass the next day--ad orientem! Latin Novus Ordo. The place was packed--with the new priest providing a brief catechesis prior to Mass as to ad orientem and the use of Latin, inviting all to enter into the sacred mystery more deeply.

A couple of observations--not a single person held hands (or orans) during the Pater Noster and there was no Exchange of Peace (and no one seemed to notice). As my wonderful wife remarked following the Mass in tears, "Uncle ... I get it now; I cried throughout the consecration".

Now she needs to go the Mass of Ages!
