Seminarians and the Extraordinary Form of Mass

It is rumoured that seminarians are being questioned regarding their interest/preference for the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite. How wonderful - or is it?

It would be wonderful if our bishops were raising this question to ensure that seminarians are aware (officially) that the two forms of Holy Mass are equally valid and that bishops wish to ensure that there is continuity into the future for those of the faithful who have a love of the 'usus antiquior'. Sadly this seems not to be the case. Seminarians are, it seems, being prejudiced against because of their wish to be involved in the Extraordinary Form. Yet it seems as if priests who are inclined towards this form may be more true to Catholic doctrine that those who lean towards liberalism and trendy 'happy clappy' liturgy.

What of the future????????
