Via Eponymous Flower and Messa in Latino comes something from World Youth Day not covered by the mainstream Catholic media. And one must ask why that is.
Traditionalist Bishops [Not the SSPX bishops. Bishops with actual faculties and authority.] Celebrate the Immemorial Mass With 1500 WYD Pilgrims
(Madrid) Msgr. Marc Marie Max Aillet, the Bishop of Bayonne, Lescar and Orlon since 2008 in France will celebrate the Holy Mass in the Extraordinary Form at the Parish Church of San Eduardo in Madrid with more than 1500 youth. This church has been allocated to the youth who are attached to Tradition from France. The Bishops of Bayonne and Frejus-Toulon have been celebrating Holy Mass in the Tridentine Rite.
In addition, young Catholic pilgrims who are bound to Tradition also use the churches of the Terceer Monasterio de la Visitación (Salesians) and the parish church of San Francisco de Sales.
Msgr Le Gall on August 19th
Bishop Marc Aillet is close to the Community of St. Martin. His priestly ordination took place in 1982 at the hands of the great Cardinal Giusseppe Siri. Before his consecration as Bishop he was the General Vicar of the Diocese of Frejus-Toulon, which is known for its closeness to Tradition. Msgr Aillet promotes the Rite in his Diocese.
[Update] on August 19th, 2011, Msgr Robert Le Gall, Archbishop of Toulose celebrated the Old Rite at the parish church of San Francisco de Sales. The Benedictine Msgr Le Gall is a famous Liturgist and was named to the tradition rich French Archdiocese in 2006. In 1992 he founded the Groupe de Chevetogne for the collaboration of Catholics and Orthodox. Archbishop Le Gall is the Chairman of the Liturgical Commission of the French Bishops Conference.

A small percentage of young people who went to World Youth Day?
There was one young man from Communist China and he received an article on CNA.
And since when are minorities with legitimate aspirations unimportant?
Also, let us remember Universae Ecclesiae:
8. The Motu Proprio Summorum Pontificum constitutes an important expression of the Magisterium of the Roman Pontiff and of his munus of regulating and ordering the Churchs Sacred Liturgy. The Motu Proprio manifests his solicitude as Vicar of Christ and Supreme Pastor of the Universal Church, and has the aim of:
a. offering to all the faithful the Roman Liturgy in the Usus Antiquior, considered as a precious treasure to be preserved;
b. effectively guaranteeing and ensuring the use of the forma extraordinaria for all who ask for it, given that the use of the 1962 Roman Liturgy is a faculty generously granted for the good of the faithful and therefore is to be interpreted in a sense favourable to the faithful who are its principal addressees;
c. promoting reconciliation at the heart of the Church.
I think that all pastors of souls should make sure that their flocks know how to say and sing all the parts of Mass which pertain to them in Latin and in their mother tongue and that they should be taught also about the Extraordinary Form of Holy Mass so that they have a greater appreciation of the riches open to them and so that they may have a choice.
