The Mystery of Christ

The Church is the depositary of the mystery of Christ: she is so in all humility and with no sign of pride or arrogance, because it is the greatest gift which she has received without any merit and which she is called to offer freely to the mankind of every age, as a horizon of meaning and of salvation. It is not a philosophy, it is not a gnosis, even though it may also include wisdom and knowledge. It is the mystery of Christ; it is Christ himself, Logos incarnate, dead, and risen, made King of the Universe.

I think Benedict XVI is making history and returning to the liturgy his correct place.
