AFP (through La Croix) reported today that the Pontifical Commission "Ecclesia Dei" will meet tomorrow at the Vatican to discuss the expansion of the use of the Tridentine Mass. La Croix credits Catholic press agency I-Media as its source. Cardinal Jean-Pierre Ricard, President of the French Catholic Bishops Conference, is a member of Ecclesia Dei. Cardinal Dario Castrillon Hoyos, who is the president of that commission, is thought to be involved in preparation of an anticipated papal Motu Proprio that would expand the use of the Tridentine Mass. According to La Croix, Cardinal Ricard has said that the Pope assured him that the project will be reconsidered.
At the time of the French Bishops Conference, last month, Cardinal Ricard assured the French bishops that their concerns would be heard before a Motu Proprio is signed.
