" Liturgical Movement..."

From Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger's 1997 memoirs, Milestones (Chapter XII):

"I am convinced that the crisis in the Church that we are experiencing today is to a large extent due to the disintegration of the liturgy...And, because the ecclesial community cannot have its origin from itself but emerges as a unity only from the Lord, through faith, such circumstances will inexorably result in a disintegration into sectarian parties of all kinds - partisan opposition within a Church tearing herself apart. This is why we need a new Liturgical Movement..."
