In one sentence Pope Paul VI shows VII to be problematic...

"Maximum est sacrae Scripturae momentum in Liturgia celebranda."  Pretty maximal statement, in the Latin.

The full paragraph:

Sacred scripture is of the greatest importance in the celebration of the liturgy. For it is from scripture that lessons are read and explained in the homily, and psalms are sung; the "prayers, collects, and liturgical songs are scriptural in their inspiration and their force, and it is from the scriptures that actions and signs derive their meaning. Thus to achieve the restoration, progress, and adaptation of the sacred liturgy, it is essential to promote that warm and living love for scripture to which the venerable tradition of both eastern and western rites gives testimony."

Seems true, at first blush.  Actually, one of the huge problems with the No and VII reforms in general is Scriptural illiteracy in the very texts themselves.  The old has within it a greater comprehension and teaching of the Scripture.
