"Liturgy must really have great continuity, protected from what is arbitrary, in which I really ... am raised up into a communion of celebration that is something other than what commissions or liturgy committees devise. I am of the opinion, to be sure, that the old rite should be granted much more generously to all those who desire it. It’s impossible to see what could be dangerous or unacceptable about that. A community is calling its very being into question when it suddenly declares that what until now was its holiest and highest possession is strictly forbidden and when it makes the longing for it seem downright indecent. Can it be trusted any more about anything else?"
-Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger now Pope Benedict XVI
