Brits Rejoice!

At least, they should be. The Telegraph on the latest announcement from Cardinal de Hoyos:

The traditional Latin Mass – effectively banned by Rome for 40 years – is to be reintroduced into every Roman Catholic parish in England and Wales, the senior Vatican cardinal in charge of Latin liturgy said at a press conference in London today.

In addition, all seminaries will be required to teach trainee priests how to say the old Mass so that they can celebrate it in all parishes.

Catholic congregations throughout the world will receive special instruction on how to appreciate the old services, formerly known as the Tridentine Rite.

I wonder if/when the same announcement will come for the US. Granted, this will take a few years, as the article states, and great care will have to be taken to protect the process from getting the Veterum Sapientia treatment mentioned below, but it's a good sign regardless.
