“From a theological point of view, today it is difficult to utilize the ideas of ‘society’ in the pre–Vatican II liturgical movement because they lack the whole ecclesiological context of Vatican II, which gives the idea of the liturgy and its ‘social culture’ a different flavor. We must restore the link between liturgical reform and social justice, but this is viable only in the context of a theology that does not ignore Vatican II.” – Massimo Faggioli
