Liturgy: German Bishops Attack Former Benedict XVI

Liturgy: German Bishops Attack Former Benedict XVI
The official news site of the German Bishops katholisch.de allowed Father Albert Gerhards who teaches liturgy in Bonn, to attack Benedict XVI for his criticism of the present trivialization of the liturgy that obscures the presence of God. Gerhards accused Benedict XVI on October 9 of black and white thinking and claims that the liturgical changes after Second Vatican Council succeeded in creating a third way that unites divine liturgy and human “creativity”. Gerhards seems to deny the prevalent secularization of the modern Catholic liturgy.
