At our chapel there are some older people who attend because this is the way it was when they grew up, but they are a minority. The majority are those who grew up in Novus Ordoland; and see its defects.
Oh how nice it is to see young couples attend the traditional mass. Young women whom the world wishes to be radical feminist's kneeling next to their boatload of children with a mantilla on ... certainly a "sign of contradicition."
(I have to menation this thought here in the guys section ... for fear of being called a sexist)

Yes, these are there, but many of them don't know that inconsciously they attend because they sense the New Rite is defective in some sense.
The small local chapel I serve the TLM sometimes, also has a lot of Papalist Catholics just not wanting to admit they "prefer" the Old Mass because it is the only bastion against heresy.....at least in the western rite (world wide almost that is).....
