Pope: There's room for those who want Latin Mass in church

LOURDES, France (AP) - Pope Benedict XVI has warned of the danger of a growing split among Catholics over the use of the old, traditional form of Latin Mass.

He told French bishops that the faithful should be made to feel at home in church, whether they yearn for a return of the ancient tongue or want to stick to modern languages at religious ceremonies.

The controversy is a sensitive one for the Church in France, where a renegade archbishop rebelled against Vatican reforms of the
1960s, including replacing Latin with local languages at Mass.
