No contest!

There is no comparison between the East and Latin masses. The beauty, mystery, and power of the Eastern Mass I attended dwarfed any previous mass, including the Tridentine (although that may have more to do with the priest at my local Tridentine parish.)

The Mass of St. John Chrysostom is 1,700 year old, and just wonderful. The incense, the parishioners' devotion, the chant ... it's all amazing.

Nor did the priest pull any punches in his homily. I was told Catholicism is the only true religion, and Catholics who don't go to church think they are too good for God. No pabulum, no childrens' choir, no folk group, no genderless langauge, no Vaudeville; it's just you and God.
