I'm only 17 but watching videos like this gives me pangs of nostalgia in my stomach:

I converted out of the Church of Ireland last Easter, and was received into the Catholic Church. When I was in the CoI, I always identified with the traditionalist Anglo-Catholic, high church wing. We used much of the traditional liturgy in worship. Although I am very glad to be Catholic now, I still miss the traditional liturgy. Problem is, I live in rural Donegal and the only traditionalists are ones in schism with the Holy See like the SSPX. I am not bashing the Novus Ordo Missae, but it doesn't really float the boat for me.
That's why I'm very excited about the recent news that the Holy Father may be allowing wider use of the Missae Cantata(tridentine mass), although I only half believe it. But while he was Cardinal Ratzinger he criticized the ban on the old missal. A few groups like the Priestly Fraternity of St Peter are allowed to say the mass in pre-Vatican II form and they are still in full communion with the Holy See, but there's none near me
Here's another nice video:

So whattya think? Should Pope Benedict bring back the Latin Mass?
