As you probably know, Catholic sources are talking about the report (click on this post's title) in the June 14 issue of the Telegraph about Cardinal Dario Castrillon Hoyos (above), head of the Pontifical Commission Ecclesia Dei.
Cardinal Castrillon was in England to celebrate the first Tridentine Latin Mass in Westminster Cathedral in 40 years. He told inquiring reporters that the Latin Mass would return to all parishes, Catholics will be taught about the Latin Mass so as to appreciate it, and seminaries must teach seminarians how to say the Latin Mass.
People are saying the Cardinal was talking only about England and Wales, but that doesn't make sense. Why would those areas be singled out? Why exclude Scotland, for example, not to mention Cornwall and the Isle of Man? Are those people sure the Cardinal wasn't talking about everywhere?
