What Pope Benedict really said about Eucharistic adoration

And while you are doing the ones above you might want to explain these too

Principles of Catholic Theology (1982), pp. 247-248: “The nature of the questions that originated with Luther and pointed the course for the Council of Trent cannot be studied in detail here.  Suffice it to say that Luther saw in the link between sacerdos [priest] and sacrificium [sacrifice] a denial of grace and a return to the law… This position, which, with its passionate concern for the purity of Christian doctrine, points to the heart of Luther’s urge to reform… The Council of Trent did not attempt here a comprehensive treatment of the problem as a whole.  Therein lies the weakness of the text it promulgated, the effect of which was all the more disastrous since the Reform Decrees [of Trent], with their broad theological range, were not fully incorporated into the theology of the schools.  The uneasiness about the Catholic doctrine of the priesthood as proclaimed by Trent that was recognizable even before Vatican Council II and that grew into an avalanche as a result of the bold ecumenical stance taken by that Council [Vatican II] has its historical foundation in the limited range of the Tridentine statement.”

Principles of Catholic Theology (1982), pp. 389-390: "Was the Council a wrong road that we must now retrace if we are to save the Church?  The voices of those who say that it was are becoming louder and their followers more numerous…. We must be on guard against minimizing these movements. Without a doubt, they represent a sectarian zealotry that is the antithesis of Catholicity. We cannot resist them too firmly."
