“the inner renewal of the Church will only succeed if it starts from a better understanding and celebrating its liturgy, faithful to its tradition and openness to the needs of the time. The self-understanding of the Church lies in understanding of its liturgy as ‘highlight and resource’. ” G. C. Leenknegt
