Pope Benedict XVI on the Crisis of the Church, God, and the Liturgy
“In the consciousness of the people of today, the things of God and thus of the liturgy do not appear at all urgent. There is an urgency about every possible thing. But the matter of God does not seem to be urgent. … And yet the priority of God whom we have forgotten holds true for everyone. If God is no longer important, the criteria for establishing what is important are displaced. Humans, in putting aside God, submit themselves to the constraints that make them the slave of material forces and thus at odds with their dignity.”
The above passage comes from the forward His Emenance wrote for the book Collected Works: Theology of the Liturgy.
