Yet another prediction that a wider application of the Tridentine Mass indult is in the offing, but this time it’s coming from a much higher source: Cardinal Jorge Medina Estevez, the retired prefect of the Congregation for Divine Worship and current member of the Ecclesia Dei commission.
Of course, this isn’t exactly rocket science. My colleagues and I were discussing the idea of a universal indult the day Benedict was elected. And before, as a lark, when we were fantasizing about Ratzinger being elected.
In July I blogged about the Eucharistic synod next month and how after we can probably expect to see some movement on a universal indult. Some people were predicting a universal indult by the end of the year, but I’m still skeptical. I think we’re more likely to see it by next summer if it’s going to happen.
