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.

The Nuremberg Trial-like Excuse which Cardinal Burke has so Staggeringly, so Stereotypically Proffered on the Promised “Formal Correction”

Does Cardinal Burke think Francis is an antipope? On at least five occasions, Cardinal Burke has rejected the magisterial nature of official papal teaching (in one case, pre-emptively dismissing a hypothetical official teaching of the Magisterium): Cardinal Burke has rejected the official teaching of Pope Francis in the new Apostolic Constitution Episcopalis Communio concerning the possibility that a pope can raise the final synodal document to the level of ordinary magisterium, if the pope chooses. (We covered the Episcopalis Communio here .) The whole apostolic constitution on the Synod is problematic. … This idea that either the Pope on his own or the Synod together with the Pope can create some new Magisterium [i.e. a new teaching of the ordinary Magisterium], is simply false. The Synod is a consultative body, to help the Pope to see how best to present the Church’s teaching in time. It’s not able to create ordinary Magisterium. As a canon lawyer, Cardinal Burk

Above: Ukrainian President Zelensky (2nd from left) and three other men perform a homoerotic skit on Ukrainian television.    What is the Real Agenda of the corrupt Joe & Hunter Biden's Russiagate backing of the Trudeau-like Obama corrupt Ukraine Operatives in their Warmongering Posturing?

"I Personally have No Doubt that Obama did in fact Orchestrate the Vatican [Pope Benedict] Coup, a[n]... Obama/Francis Partnership"

Attorney and World Net Daily (WND) contributor Scott Lively believes "that Obama did in fact orchestrate the Vatican [Pope Benedict XVI] coup, and... the Obama/Francis partnership behind the United Nation": Jesuit Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio of Argentina became Pope Francis in March of 2013. I published  my first article about Pope Francis and the LGBT agenda  on August 1, 2013 when he was in the news for appearing to legitimize the concept of a “gay” identity as innate and unchangeable.  That concept is the false, anti-biblical premise of so-called “Queer Theory” (their term, not mine), a pseudo-scientific invention of “gay” political strategists, which underlies the entire LGBT political agenda. Francis infamously said in a media interview “If a person is gay and seeks the Lord and has good will, who am I to judge that person?”.   I actually defended him against the charge that this statement represented an endorsement of homosexual conduct, and gave him the benefit of t
