Since Pope Benedict XVI issued his motu proprio Summorum Pontificum on July 7, 2007, many Catholics who had never had an opportunity to attend the Traditional Latin Mass have now had a chance to do so. And they have found that, despite the obvious continuities, there are some fairly obvious differences between the Traditional Latin Mass and the Novus Ordo, too.
Now that we're coming up on the fifth anniversary of the motu proprio, have you attended a Traditional Latin Mass? What did you think? Take the poll, and then tell us in the comments about your experience.Poll: Have you ever attended a Traditional Latin Mass?
