The whole point Fr. Z. was making was that the change back is "brick by brick".  He was saying that these good things he described were steps in the right direction, not that the problem is solved.  Change takes time.  We need to train a new generation of priests who can say the TLM.  We need a laity that understands our true role and stops trying to usurp the priest's. 

When God led the Hebrews out of slavery in Egypt, He let them wander in the wilderness for 40 years because they were not ready for the Promised Land.  There had to be time for a new generation to grow up who were accustomed to freedom.  God acts in His own timing not ours.  He is just as able to lead His people as He ever was.

Excellent, let's hope so.  CBC showed the Pope being rolled in on a trolley.  The announcer said that there were rumors that Pope Benedict may have severe arthritis in his legs.  Did anyone notice his tall gold mitre?  It looked like there was a gold image of the Blessed Virgin on it.  I don't know if it was the mitre of Pope Pius IX - Pio Nono mentioned in this 2008 article or not.  I couldn't view the video that Magdalene posted because it wanted me to download microsoft silverlite and haven't been able to find it elsewhere online.  Was this the mitre that the Pope was wearing?

Lilies would make more sense than corn.
