ARCHBISHOP AGOSTINO MARCHETTO
Author, "Benedict XVI: Keys to interpreting Vatican II"

"The keys are important to fully understand the Council's line of interpretation. It's about reform and continuity not about discontinuity or rupture.”

At this point, the book is only in Italian, its three authors include Cardinal Walter Brandmüller,  Agostino Marchetto and Nicola Bux, who together gathered key points, as explained by Benedict XVI. 

They say it's key to understand that in this case, renovation and tradition can go hand in hand, under the so called hermeneutic of continuity. In fact during his pontificate, the Pope has highlighted the importance of this Council and its role within the Catholic Church.
