"we have one Tridentine Rite Mass here in my diocese - which encompasses a huge area - at 8:00 a.m. on Sundays only in just one city. Oh, and of course, it's a low Mass."

- and I'm sure your bishop thinks he's being "generous".

At least the time isn't too bad. Most in the UK, if they allow them on a Sunday, are around 2.00 to 3.00 pm so that it will be as inconvenient as possible for people to come.

I doubt it will be a universal indult, or Hoyos would have said so. Since it is being worked out, I suspect bishops will have to prove that they have a "wide and generous application" of Ecclesia Dei.

IOW, is the Mass available at convenient locations?

Each bishop will have to offer at least one, on a regular basis. Or, some guidelines could be issued, and the implementation left to the local bishop.

An apostolic administration would be preferred, or the tension will continue.

That's probably not to make in inconvenient. The ethnic-separatists pastors which abound all across the DC and LI areas always make sure the segreg... I mean, Spanish language masses are at 2PM also... Morning and 6PM are reserved for mainsteam.
