Cardinal Castrillon Hoyos: Latin Mass in ALL parishes

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?

Cornwall is a County of England.... The Isle of Man is part of the Diocese of Liverpool -Again part of England. As for Scotland - the church is under a separate jurisdiction there - set up before the act of union which united the Kingdom of England and Wales with that of Scotland.... Though i'm sure he actually means all parished world anywaywide

I agree Q, he meant ALL parishes. SP was a gift for the entire Church. Just as VII intended Latin Masses in all parishes.

Dear Anonymous 1:02 p.m.,

Yes, I agree with you that he must've meant everywhere.

I was thinking of Cornwall, the Isle of Man and Wales not as dioceses but as part of the Seven Celtic Nations, along with Scotland, Ireland, Brittany and (the Iberian) Galicia.

Dear Joe of St. Therese,

Yes, a gift for all the nations is a good way to put it!
