Question of the Week: Mass

Disclaimer: This post is not directed toward any discussion about the merits of Vatican II or toward schismatics or radical traditionalism. There are plenty of debates online if you want to duke out your own feelings on V2 elsewhere. I am operating under the premise that we all accept the validity of that particular council and the Novus Ordo Mass... and that we are all faithful and obedient to the Shepard in Rome, Pope Benedict. Given that, I think it's an interesting idea to wrestle around with since the topic of a universal indult is in Catholic news lately:

Yes, the Novus Ordo liturgy is a valid Mass, and yes, it can be celebrated beautifully... but do you think it is inherently inferior to the Traditional Latin (a.k.a. Tridentine) Mass?
