St. John Paul II  – 

Traditions are good, and we should enjoy the sense of continuity they bring to our lives. But we also need to seek out newness and change, because this is where God lives. “Tradition is the living faith of the dead; traditionalism is the dead faith of the living. Tradition lives in conversation with the past, while remembering where we are and when we are and that it is we who have to decide.” Jaroslav Pelikan
