I love the Mass of Masses:
the Traditional Latin Mass (TLM).
I, also, love attending daily TLM Mass now that my business is closed down until probably the new year, but because my TLM priest had to go on a trip for the week I was forced to go to Novus Ordo (NO) until he returns on Sunday.
I am in Heaven at the TLM, but I had go to Purgatory for the NO Masses this week.
The way I survive the NO Mass is by pretending I am at the TLM Mass and using my red TLM Missal during the NO Mass.
I make zero responses and am silent at the entirety of the NO Mass. I pray the Our Father and creed silently.
I read my red Missal, silently, during the readings and during what apparently many NO priests symbolically seem to think is the central part of the NO Mass: the homily.
I knee during the Holy Consecration when Our crucified Lord and Savoir Jesus Christ is made present by the sacred words of the priest.
I kneel when I receive Our Lord at Holy Communion despite the sometimes startled looks of the NO priests.
And even more startling for NO priests, I receive on the tongue. One time, some time back, a elderly NO priest gave me a very slight slap on the face because he was so disconcerted he almost dropped and missed placing the Blessed Sacrament on my tongue.
I feel sorry for him and all NO priests because they don't seem to realize or are blind to the tremendous loss of celebrating the NO "Eucharistic celebration" with it's emphasis on the "dialoguing" with the "people" instead of the Mass of the saints with it's emphasis on adoring Our Lord in the sacrifice of the Mass.
After receiving, I kneel, adore, offer reparation, thanksgiving, make petitions for mine and others salvation as well as for the souls in Purgatory, make meditations and silently listen to Our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament inside of me until the ending blessing.
I stand when we are supposed to stand then kneel at the priest blessing at the end of Mass.
I spend an half hour of thanksgiving and prayer after I receive Holy Communion unless an act of charity forces me to do otherwise.
Most of the time, I can't do my thanksgiving and prayer with Our Lord inside of me in the church so I silently do it as I drive and at home.
And that is my survival guide if one has no choice, but to attend a NO Mass.
Pray an Our Father now for the restoration of the Church as well as for the Triumph of the Kingdom of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate of Mary.
