Vatican City (VIC) -In a tightly closed meeting very early this morning Pope Benedict XVI announced to just four knights of the Roman Catholic Church that he was banning the so-called "novus ordo," the 1970 Roman Missal.  His Holiness said the only Roman Missal to be used for Mass is the 1962 Roman Missal.  He noted that vernacular may be used to read the epistle and Gospel by the Priest before the homily. Otherwise by May 24, 2008 only Latin is to be used for mass and all changes so the 1962 Missal can be used must be made to the churches by August 30, 2008. USA and European news agencies call this shocking and a set back for the progress of Western Civilization.  The mandated dates set forth by his Holiness are expected not to be met in the USA.  A senior reporter for a major Catholic Magazine said his inside tip says it will be late 2010 by the time the USA conference of Bishops reads today's report.  He claims his source says if the USA bishops choose to even acknowledge the pope's mandate don't expect changes until at least 2012.  The Vatican is scrambling to assert the papal power and enact this new abolishment of the Novus Ordo and re-installation of the "Tridentine Mass" as swiftly as it can.
Certainly there will be more to follow as news keeps trickling in.  Stay tuned as the world goes into shock.  Calling a latin teacher now, this is world wide news reporting.

I'm not familiar with these... what does this entail?

In other words, the current mass at a Roman Catholic Church (post-Vatican 2 mass) will be replaced with the pre-vatican 2 latin tridentine mass.

Grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked anyway, the good fortune to run into the ones I do, and the eyesight to tell the difference.

Well, all that Latin you're studying to be able to go to Church will come in handy when looking at the relevant law books... ;)
