|Old Liberal Cardinal Lehman at Lecture in Wurzburg|
(kreuz.net)Critics of the post-Conciliar liturgical reform, who are attached to "immemorial, unchangeable forms", do not see through "the historical relativism".
Cardinal Karl Lehmann of Mainz said this on Saturday during a lecture about the liturgical reform at the St. Burkardus-House in Wurzburg.
This was according to the Press Office of the Diocese of Wurzburg.
The occasion of the lecture was the 47th anniversary of the publication of the Conciliar Documents on the Liturgy of "Sancrosanctum Concilium".
The pastoral and liturgical break after the Pastoral Council was termed by Cardinal Lehman as a "great work".
The Pastoral Council is said to have nourished "the meaning of the Liturgy for the life of the Church" -- joked the Cardinal just then.
Then he said, that the Pastoral Council did not issue "a charter to make one's own forms", although that -- with the complete agreement of the Bishop-- is what happened.
The arbitrariness and lawlessness after the Council was supposedly not a goal of the reform.
The Cardinal continued, saying, that it was good, when the divine services brings "our lives" into fullness-- without clarifying what he meant with that.
Then on the other hand he said that one must "altogether" give room for Jesus Christ.
