Possible Papal Mass in the Extraordinary Form

Let us hope that this rumor (h/t: Fr. Z) has some truth behind it; recent movements in the curia would seem to prefigure its possibility. Such an event would be a great blessing to the Universal Church and yet another sign of our Holy Father's firm commitment to the restoration of the sacred in the Church's liturgy. Let us pray for him, that he may carry his many hefty burdens with strength, fortitude & charity:

Christ Jesus, King and Lord of the Church, in your presence I renew my unconditional loyalty to your Vicar on earth, the Pope. In him you have chosen to show us the safe and secure path that we must follow in the midst of confusion, uneasiness and unrest. I firmly believe that through him you govern, teach and sanctify us; with him as our shepherd, we form the true Church: one, holy, catholic and apostolic.

Grant me the grace to love, live and spread faithfully our Holy Father's teachings. Watch over his life, enlighten his mind, strengthen his spirit, defend him from calumny and evil. Calm the erosive winds of infidelity and disobedience. Hear our prayer and keep your Church united around him, firm in her belief and action, that she may truly be the instrument of your redemption. Amen.

-Regnum Christi's Prayer for the Pope
