This is not meant to criticize anyone for the comments posted thus far, just sharing my thoughts.
The thing that I find the most difficult to understand about the "reformers" who brought us the inglorious Novus Ordo religion is their lack of any love for the past. Even pagans have a natural respect for their ancestors, a certain sense of connection with those who came before. Not so the moderns.
When we attend Mass, obviously the only truly necessary part is that our Lord himself is made sacramentally present. But something that I find very compelling, inspiring, and comforting is the real connection with all who came before in the Faith. My ancestors, who are predominantly western European, were formed by the Latin Rite which includes the Latin language. These people lived, suffered, fought, and died for the Faith.
Which is why I believe that we must avoid thinking of the Mass as our own, it belongs to God and our forebears. It is not ours to do with as we please. We are rather to be formed by it and care for and preserve it, even it's most minute details undiminished, for the love of God and for our descendants.
