Liturgy: Cardinal Arinze on Latin, music, and translations (from 2006)

Fr. Z has called my attention to a talk given by His Eminence Francis Cardinal Arinze (Prefect of the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments) back in November of 2006. His talk ("On Language in Liturgy") was published on ZENIT in three parts:
  1. "Latin Is Concise, Precise and Poetically Measured"
  2. "Good Music Helps to Promote Prayer"
  3. "No Individual Has Authority to Change the Approved Wording"
See Fr. Z's post for his comments. I'll get around to reading the whole thing and probably sharing a few key points.
