I am really impressed with the new Mass. I have been, for a few decades (mea culpa) an irregular attendee at Mass, attendance being a handful of times per year.

I started going more regularly this past Advent. I am happy with what I see and hear.

The words to the Prefaces are outstanding, so deep and so thought-provoking. I am in awe of the richness of the words of the Eucharistic Prayers. Just beautiful!

It is obvious to this fallen-away sinner that the Holy Spirit has been at work in this revision. Much time must have been devoted to putting this together. Well done, whomever. And thank you.

I look forward to going to Mass on the weekend now as something has been stirred within. I much appreciate the reverence around the altar. There is far less coming and going than I remember. I like it.
