How about teaching Latin in L.A.?

In his Apostolic Exhortation Sacramentum Caritatis (February 22, 2007) -- click on this post's title -- Pope Benedict XVI wrote the following:

"I ask that future priests, from their time in the seminary, receive the preparation needed to understand and to celebrate Mass in Latin, and also to use Latin texts and execute Gregorian chant; nor should we forget that the faithful can be taught to recite the more common prayers in Latin, and also to sing parts of the liturgy to Gregorian chant." (No. 62)

So, how is the Archdiocese of Los Angeles responding to this request from the Vicar of Christ? Promptly, generously and humbly?

Or you can teach it at my old Church and get thrown out. So, not well, Starting next year at St. Therese (where I'll be teaching )we'll be having Latin Lessons mixed in between the catechesis
