“…the Vespri’s mass at the St. Paolo’s Basilica…”

We are interested these days in accuracy of reporting on the details of the Motu Proprio.

…the finely crafted caption for a photo from Reuters

Pope Benedict XVI leads the Vespri’s mass at the St. Paolo’s Basilica in Rome June 28, 2007. Pope Benedict will tell Roman Catholic priests in coming days that they can say mass in Latin as a concession to traditionalists. (Alessandro Bianchi/Reuters)

The Holy Father was at St. Paul’s for Vespers, not Mass.  I am not worried about the Italian/English confusion in the caption.  Notice the description of "Latin Mass" as a "concession".
