None of the English or Welsh Bishops Attended
That is the money line from the National "Catholic" Reporter's article on the TLM celebrated in Westminster Cathedral by His Eminence Dario Cardinal Castrillon-Hoyos. Westminster Cathedral is the See of the Primate of England.
The fact that none of the bishops attended stands in stark contrast to the remarks of His Eminence that the Holy Father intends every Catholic parish to offer the Mass in the Extraordinary Form.
Let's hope the bishops show great alacrity in responding to the wishes of the Pope. If Summorum Pontificum wasn't quite clear enough, this should clear things up.
