Is Life without the TLM like Purgatory?

Note: I am visiting my home state, New Mexico, for Holy Week and unfortunately my laptop is having problems. The other person with access to editing and posting, at the moment, has a lot on her plate and can't post either. So this post is coming from my smartphone.

I'm in Purgatory it appears until Sunday when I hope I can go to a TLM. I'm starting to suspect that the Novus Ordo Mass is in many ways Semi-Arian because the Holy Trinity is so absent in it. Also, I suspect the good and kind people attending the NO Masses are experiencing a kind of spiritual malnutrition.

Pray an Our Father for the restoration of the Catholic Church and the Triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

Fred, it's worse.
To be in Purgatory is to be tormented but still alive with certain foresight of eternal life in Heaven.

I just had a disturbing thought. The Pharisees were seen as super holy religious people. They were such clingers to the traditions of men (the synagogue) that they crucified their messiah for healing on the Sabbath, allowing his disciples to pluck grain on the sabbath and generally hanging out with sinners. They didn’t even notice what they were doing.

Now to keep the obedience to the pope paramount many Catholics do not notice the man they call pope is teaching a new gospel. If you try to report what he has really said and done they call you schismatic or scandalous. There are even apologists defending the pope’s idolatry at the Amazon synod. Isn’t breaking the first commandment against the very teachings of God? To have their Holy Father they are willing junk Jesus’ teachings. They don’t notice, at all.

I don't attend the Novus Ordo Missae mass at all myself. Look for a Byzantine/Eastern Catholic if one is out there.

The Novus Ordo mass just does not inspire much holiness, unless you can find an Ad Orientem or hybrid that has some Latin in it...

I generally avoid it.

"Remember when Trump was up by 600,000 votes in Pennsylvania?": A Hour which will Live in Infamy: 10:01pm November 3, 2020

  Matthew H @MattH_4America Remember when Trump was up by 600,000 votes in Pennsylvania? 1:07 PM · Jul 13, 2022 · Twitter Web App [https://twitter.com/MattH_4America/status/1547311877264400384] 10:01pm November 3, 2020, a hour which will live in infamy, the United States of America presidential electoral integrity was suddenly and deliberately attacked by the forces of the Democrat Machine and some corrupt collaborators within the Republican Party. It will be recorded that "under the pretense of COVID, executive branch officials across a number of key battleground states violated election procedures passed by the legislative branches of those states in a number of ways that opened up the process to fraud on a massive scale, never before seen in the history of this country" which makes it obvious that the attack was deliberately planned many days or even weeks before. During the time before and after the attack the Democrat Machine and its corrupt collaborator

Taylor Marshall finally admitted that "Francis teaches HERESY," now, the question is will he do a Skojec & a Schneider Cop Out

    Doctor of the Church St. Francis de Sales totally confirmed beyond any doubt the possibility of a heretical pope and what must be done by the Church in such a situation: "[T]he Pope... WHEN he is EXPLICITLY a heretic , he falls ipso facto from his dignity and out of the Church, and the Church MUST either deprive him , or, as some say, declare him deprived, of his Apostolic See." (The Catholic Controversy, by St. Francis de Sales, Pages 305-306) Taylor Marshall finally admitted that "Pope Francis teaches HERESY: Pope Pius XII condemned the heresy of Francis": Pope Francis on Feb 2 2022, taught, "that in Christ no one can ever truly separate us from those we love because the bond is an existential bond, a strong bond that is in our very nature...who have denied the faith, who are apostates." Pope Pius XII taught the exact opposite when he wrote of those: "who have not been so unfortunate as to separate themselves from the unity of the Body, or b

    "You cannot give Holy Communion to the abortionists, to the abortion promoters and providers, to the divorce and remarried. You cannot do it. St. Paul said you do not feed the Eucharist to dogs..."   "Right now they [the laity] are suffering in silence. They need to object. The laity, the sensus fidelium is that common sense among the laity who have accepted the magisterial teaching of the Church which is the foundation of their faith."     "Having accepted that when they hear something that is contradictory to the magisterial teaching of the Church, the sensus fidelium is a impulse that causes them to speak out and say no."     "That is not true. Don't say that. Stop! That is the sensus fidelium in action!"     "Not to sit and suffer in silence. That's crazy. That's weird. That's wrong. Speak up! Resist!
