The Cross Pollination that I think that Pope Benedict wanted with the encouragement of the Latin Mass.

That's nice. At that particular parish, it'll last as long as long as that particular priest remains there...

Still contains all the flaws of the N.O. Mass. It's interesting that he does the genuflection right after he says the words for the consecrating of the bread and then again for the wine. So he's changing the rubrics...
In conclusion, I can leave you with no better advice than that given after every sermon by Msgr Vincent Giammarino, who was pastor of St Michael’s Church in Atlantic City in the 1950s:

    “My dear good people: Do what you have to do, When you’re supposed to do it, The best way you can do it,   For the Love of God. Amen.”

So a woman in the Sanctuary (uncovered, mind you) reading prayer intentions during Mass is "traditional?" So much for Saint Paul...

A Novus Ordo mass CAN'T be traditional no matter what language it is in; it is NOVUS. Only some of the externals can be traditional.

I went to a Latin Novus Ordo Mass only once in my life - at my Catholic/Novus Ordo College graduation.  My parents learned about the TLM when I was about 12, and a  Novus Ordo Mass (even in Latin) was only a one time exception for me after that.  Since then the only Novus Ordo Mass I go to is at weddings or funerals (where I don't participate).

The Mass at my graduation was beautiful and reverent (the only women were in the pews or at the Communion rail, where we all knelt and received on the tongue).  But it didn't express the truth of "The Mass of the Ages".'

We need to remember that with regard to the "TLM", the emphasis needs to be on the "T".  It would have been a pity to say the Old Mass in English (the vernacular), but it is not the language that is the main problem. But Latin does preserve the truth and the reverence better than English can.

Non Nobis - I think the best thing that TLMers can hope for is the old mass in a sacerdotal vernacular.  I would prefer that clearly before ever preferring the NO in Latin.  In fact, I can never prefer the Latin NO as a final outcome.  I don't think that this crisis resolves itself without a compromise hybridization of liturgy.  I would be a believer in all of the traditional arguments for latin and the western liturgy were it not for this crisis(found within tradition as well) and the reality that is eastern Christianity(catholic or not).  I personally like the idea of one rite many languages.  Latin could still be very useful in romance language territory.  But, a sober assessment reveals that western trads are not the only players.  So, learn to participate.  You wanted empire; now you got it. 

For the stone shall cry out of the wall; and the timber that is between the joints of the building, shall answer.  Woe to him that buildeth a town with blood, and prepareth a city by iniquity. - Habacuc 2,11-12
