Liturgical matters apparently haven’t been very high on his list in the past. No reason to believe things won’t continue as they are under Summorum Pontificum, even if true that he’s been biased against the Traditional Mass. There are far greater concerns for him to deal with at this point.

St. Pio said: “Humility, humility and always humility. Satan fears and trembles before humble souls. The Lord is willing to do great things but on condition that we are truly humble.” We seem to have a very humble Holy Father. Instead of stressing out about his potential liturgical inclinations, it makes more sense to take St. Pio’s advice and simply “pray, hope and don’t worry”.

Fully agree with your nice, informative comment but that's getting tough, even just the secular matter of health care going forward has me practically without hope and chronically overwrought.

I am not so sure Pope Francis is humble and this appearance of humility is not instead scruples. The Pope should not pay his own hotel bill. The Pope should not wear simple clothing. The Pope should not ride in a bus instead of taking a bulletproof car.
