Polish Mass

Michael and I went to the nearby Polish-language Mass tonight; afterward, I apologized for not offering him my Novus Ordo missal (left lying on the back seat of my car) in order to follow the liturgy (his Polish is rather rusty), whereas I'd brought along my Trad. missal and had read the chants, prayers and lessons from it instead.  "Oh no," said Michael, "I wanted to pray!'  

Never were truer words spoken about actual participation at Mass.
