[quote:2c9s9k4r]I also grew up only with the Novus Ordo. I remember reading some articles on a traditionalist website about the Tridentine Mass and while I feel there are many aspects of it that do seem more reverend I value my ability to participate more actively in the mass. That, of course, was one of the goals of Vatican II.

[quote:2c9s9k4r]In the restoration and promotion of the sacred liturgy, the full and active participation by all the people is the aim to be considered above all else, for it is the primary and indespensible source from which the faithful are to derive the true Christian spirit.[/quote:2c9s9k4r][/quote:2c9s9k4r]

Yes, that is one of the things I hear from people that grew up with Mass in Latin is that the priest spoke a funny language and people just repeated what they were supposed to, etc…. With the Mass in someone’s native language they can now participate more and have a greater appreciation for what is happening.
