Luther's Folly

The error of Luther lay, I am convinced, in a false idea of historicity, in a poor understanding of unicity. The sacrifice of Christ is not situated behind us as something past. It touches all times and is present to us. The Eucharist is not merely the distribution of what comes from the past, but rather the presence of the paschal mystery of Christ, who transcends and unites all times. ~Pope Benedict XVI/Joseph Ratzinger, Theology of the Liturgy, Lecture Delivered During the Journees Liturgiques de Fontgombault
