It is strange. I have only been attending Mass in the usus antiquior for a relatively short while, and we've only had the full Missa Cantata on Sundays for a year (we had the Novus Ordo readings for a short time, while people got accustomed to Mass in the Extraordinary Form), and I regularly attend the Novus Ordo too, but having the Triduum according to the usus recentior has been incredibly difficult.
For a start, it's so "wordy"!
It was quite a relief to attend the Extraordinary Form Mass this morning.
I'm not the only one who felt it: "Ahhh, yes, we're back to normal this morning," as one friend put it.
