Interest in an indult

Amid other things, Cardinal Arinze was asked about something that we've heard nothing about so far.

Questioned on a different topic-- whether the Church might expand the permission for celebration the Tridentine-rite Mass-- Cardinal Arinze replied that the topic had not been discussed at any length during the Synod, and was not one of the "priorities" of the assembly.

Read the complete article Prelates tackle controversial Synod issues (Thursday update) from Catholic World News.

I didn't think anything would come of a 'universal indult' or anything else for the Tridentine Mass. As I noted before, aside from the usual buzz from the 'traditional' folks, it wasn't until the meeting with Fellay that a lot of noise was made on the topic. With the SSPX dialogue back to where it was before, a unilateral move on the part of the Holy See just didn't seem probable.
