Ratzinger Schulerkreis Takes Up Reform

Zenit reports on the pope’s students’ reunion.

Archbishop Kurt Koch, president of the Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity was the principal speaker, who noted this conclusion:

Fidelity to tradition and openness to the future.

I would have liked to have been a fly on the wall. These items aren’t always complementary, and in some cases are mutually exclusive. Reform, however, not continuity, was reported:

In the first session I proposed a reflection on how to read and interpret the Second Vatican Council, indicating the priority of an hermeneutics of reform … an issue which I took up again and developed in the second presentation, reflecting further, in particular, on the constitution ‘Sacrosanctum Concilium’ on the liturgy, precisely to show concretely how an hermeneutics of reform can be implemented.

Thoughts as to what this all might mean, and what tack the “very interesting and rich” discussion might have taken?
