I have no concerns whatsoever about the continued growth of the TLM under our new Pope Francis. He will not do anything to undermine the freedom Pope Benedict granted to the TLM. And unlike Pope Benedict, I would not be at all surprised to see Pope Francis publicly offer a TLM some day.

Seriously.

The man has a deep devotion to Our Lady of Fatima, practices the Five first Saturday Devotions, and prays 15 decades of the Rosary each day.

After he meets with Pope Emeritus Benedict, reads the 300 page dossier on the VatiLeaks scandal, and reads the rest of the Third secret of Fatima, he will be a different man than he was as Archbishop, then Cardinal, in Argentina.

He just strikes me as the type who, once he learns something is the Lord’s Will, he will simply make it his own. I suspect under the influence of our Pope Emeritus and the rest of the Third Secret we will be pleasantly surprised by his pontificate.

Well, if Intrade were still in operation I'd take the opposite bet but not more than 100 lira (if we could still find some).

Actually, it may be that liturgical reforms, or restoration or whathaveyou just aren't his main gig.

On second thought, maybe if he reads the full Third Secret he will immediately call a TLM!

Is there any indication that the contents of the dossier were shared with the Cardinals?
