The simple fact of translation has not made the liturgy better understood. It was not the language that hindered people’s understanding, but the intricate thoughts of the liturgy. The key to liturgical understanding is liturgical catechesis, which is not just a presentation of thoughts loosely related to the liturgy, but a pathway to the thoughts and ideas of the liturgy itself through fixed words, sentences, texts and signs. In this respect, too, the liturgy follows the order of Incarnation: to arrive through the visible at the invisible, through the body (here: the body of the language) to the spirit.
