Is this the anti-Ratzinger Pope?


"Whenever applause breaks out in the liturgy because of some human achievement, it is a sure sign that the essence of liturgy has totally disappeared and been replaced by a kind of religious entertainment." Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger, The Spirit of the Liturgy, 198. As St. Pope Pius X said when he was received with applause upon entering St. Peter's Basilica: "It is not fitting to applaud the servant in the house of his Master."
