News: Papal visit goes online

Visit for information on Pope Benedict XVI's upcoming trip to the United States in April. Hopefully I can get a seat at Yankee Stadium for the Mass he'll say there. I wonder if the ordinary parts of the Mass will be in Latin, as endorsed by Sacramentum Caritatis, n. 62:
I am thinking here particularly of celebrations at international gatherings, which nowadays are held with greater frequency. The most should be made of these occasions. In order to express more clearly the unity and universality of the Church, I wish to endorse the proposal made by the Synod of Bishops, in harmony with the directives of the Second Vatican Council, {Cf. Sacrosanctum Concilium, nn. 36, 54} that, with the exception of the readings, the homily and the prayer of the faithful, it is fitting that such liturgies be celebrated in Latin.
