It just seems that with a Pope that thrives and relishes on the  media and public opinion, it is important he knows that people are aware of what he is up to. After all, I think that is what Archbishop Lefebvre and his followers did in their day and to a certain extent what Cardinal Burke is doing today.

One of the unfortunate aspects of living in "modern" times is the fact that we can know within moments what's happening in other places in the world. 

In our day, every time a pope sneezes, we have to hear about it.  In times past, there were Catholics who lived and died without having the slightest idea of who occupied the papacy.  Some popes only lasted a couple days, others made it a couple weeks, still others a couple months. 

The average Catholic living in, say, India in the third century (perhaps illiterate) probably had no idea about who was pope and wasn't all that concerned about who was pope or what he had to say on a daily basis.
