What is the deeper meaning of such an immense change? We shall find out in future decades what God is planning to do. A Spanish proverb famously tells us that God writes straight with crooked lines. So we have to wait and see.
This change reminds me of one surprising conversation a few years ago with a member of the Catholic clergy who could not initially think of a reason for a Catholic theologian to learn Spanish--in spite of its being the original language of Sts. Ignatius of Loyola, Teresa of Jesus, and John of the Cross, not to mention the modern writings of St. Josemaría Escrivá. It's time to renew our minds.
