I must have misunderstood what was meant by that. Please forgive me. :(

While the quote is ambiguous, I think it is quite possible that your interpretation is correct.  I certainly wouldn't have ever expected a statement that sounds like this one before the Council.  The Church was always careful to explicitly state that the most important aspect of the Mass was the re-presentation of Christ on the altar via the Eucharist.  Something that could possibly make someone think otherwise would never have been stated, especially by a Council.
