Vatican support for traditional Latin Mass promoted

From the Cardinal Ratzinger Fan Club discussion group comes a notice about a site advocating the establishment of a Traditional Apostolic Administration for the purpose of regularizing the status of the Traditional Rite in the Church. The author of the post notes that Cardinal Ratzinger is very much involved in this matter as a member of the Pontificial Commission in charge of "Ecclesia Dei." In the Apostolic Letter, Ecclesia Dei (July 2, 1988), the Holy Father called for the "wide and generous application" of the indult (traditional Latin) Mass. Supporters are asked to sign on to a petition requesting Pope John Paul II to erect Personal Apostolic Administrations for the Traditional Rite online at this link. Related links include:
