Sorry to say I made a couple of mistakes, but fewer.
After Mass, I asked Daniel his reactions. What did he think of Mass in the older form.
This is what he said:
> "It seemed more focused on God, where (the ordinary form) is more focused on the people."
> "It seemed more about sacrifice."
I said, wait--is this what you've heard from other people?
"Well, yes, but--I had come to these conclusions on my own."
And what about the silence? Did that bother you?
"No. It felt prayerful."
Did you feel badly that I turned my back on you?
Before he and his mom left for the day, she came and said: "Daniel wants to know if you'll be offering the Latin Mass next week?" I said Monday for sure. Looks like Daniel will be back.
