Pope Francis on Latin

In a message to a meeting of the Pontifical Academies in Rome, Pope Francis is reported as saying:

"Teachers should know how to speak to the hearts of young people, know how to treasure the very rich heritage of the Latin tradition..."

As is usually the case with Pope Francis, he talks around the subject, dropping in suggestions and inferences, but not being very clear about what he actually means.  Many reporters have interpreted the pope's message as encouraging the teaching of Latin, especially to young people.
