I haven’t read all the stories linked, but I hope that “Open Book” will report on “Juventutem”, the traditionalist group of young people who are being patronized by some high-level prelates like Cardinals George and Pell.
The attachment of many young Catholics to the old rite comes as no surprise to the Pope, of course, who understands the issues much better than his predecessor did.

David, in my big post with all the links, I have a link to them, as well as to the blog of Confssions of a Recovering Choir Director, who is supposed to be a part of that.

No one better than Fr. R and Tim Drake for coverage at this point.
LOVE the interview Fr. R did of Tim Drake. The tables were turned for the interview…! Very personal and very international in flavor. Fr. R. really does understand that ’cause, well, he’s Dutch!
Lots better than anything on EWTN at this point…

David – I found a Juventutem itinerary PDF link on Recovering Choir Director’s blog. According to that, they will be at a few different churches, but mostly a St. Antonius. I’m trying to find out if that’s in Dusseldorf. There will be Vespers there on Friday w/Cdl. Arinze; I’ve told this to my husband, he and my son would really like to meet up with them.
Without a doubt, there are very many good things that will come from all of this but there are some problematic things going on, too. They seem to stem from the unexpected crowds; they simply can’t handle all these people. Food runs out. Getting around can at times be totally impossible, so you miss a lot of scheduled things. And things like this happen: The room designated for mass can’t hold everyone. So the priest assures them that everyone downstairs will be able to hear everything via some speakers. But too many people downstairs are talking, singing – not with the mass, just continuous, loud singing – even snacking, and when one guy actually drains a beer and then goes on upstairs to recieve communion, my son says, “I gotta get out of here…” Had they had room enough for everyone I doubt stuff like that would happen.
