Ratzinger on pro multis

The recent Vatican decision to order a more literal translation of a key phrase of the Mass is starting to provoke controversy. It would be salutary to read the wise, balanced words the Pope wrote about the issue as Cardinal Ratzinger. Ignatius Press has been good enough to share that with us by posting the relevant passage from his book God is Near Us: The Eucharist, the Heart of Life, of which they are the publishers of the English translation.

The Catholics among you will certainly be edified and well-informed on this much-misunderstood topic if you just read the passage. I recommend the book too.
