How Do You Respond to Traditionalist Claims That the Use of “for All” in the Consecration Invalidates the Mass?

Question:

I have heard some traditionalist Catholics argue that the Novus Ordo Mass (the ordinary Mass you hear in most parishes) is invalid because it states that Jesus shed his blood "for you and for all." The Latin has "pro multis," which means "for many," not "for all."
