A new rumour

Now that the Motu Proprio is out, it is surely time for another rumour. This from Androkronos via Fr Z.
The Pope could celebrate publicly Mass in Latin according to the Rite of St. Pius V. An official introduction of the Rite which, as far as ADNKRONOS has learned from authoritative Vatican sources, could take place on the 1st Sunday of Advent, the beginning of the liturgical year.
I agree with fr Zuhlsdorf that
[...] a single Mass by the Holy Father, with all the necessary solenmity, would effect as much if not more than the Motu Proprio.

However, having both would be even better!
