Wow, I hate it when people learn in like a week what it took me years to slug through!
I found tradition in Mexico because of clothes. I was going to mass in Puerto Vallarta and trying to get the traditional mass by petition, back in the indult days, and of course getting nowhere (and a good thing, too, since it would have been terrible, an abuse of Our Lord, to have traditional mass in the cesspool of the 'cathedral' in Puerto Vallarta). There was a Eucharistic Congress in Guadalajara, but I didn't go because my Spanish was too weak to arrange it, but when they came back, someone said to me, Hey, there were people just like you in the procession! So of course I said, how, and they said, You know, they were all dressed up! Rich people! Because I always dressed appropriately for mass even though others came in bikini tops (I'm serious). So it took me a whole year, but I finally found those 'rich people' who dressed up for mass, and it was the SSPX chapel in Guadalajara, and they weren't rich at all, in fact, they are so poor it's unbelievable. But they manage, by a ribbon here and a bit of lace there, to give the impression of great dignity and great love for God. And I found them because of the clothes they wore. All I had to do was keep asking, do you know where is the church where they dress up for mass? And that's how I found them.
May God bless this person so new to tradition. I know they'll get a fashion credit, because traditional mass is the only place a woman can dress like a lady these days. And it's so fun!
