First experience of the old Mass

Richard Marsden has posted an article about the party on Saturday. At the morning Mass, he had his first experience of the usus antiquior and it is interesting to read his reflections: summed up in the phrase "there was no faffing about".

He says:
I thought the best plan of action was to just sit at the back, observe and join in with the Latin I knew, without trying to flick around in the booklet to follow it.
I think that this is a good approach for anyone who is new to the older form of the Mass: you can look through a booklet or missal later when you are a little more used to what is going on.
