I will always remember the time I was chatting with Cardinal Arinze in 2004 just after the release of his magnum opus instruction, Redemptionis Sacramentum.
Encouraged by Pope John Paul II just before he passed away the following year, RS was a sort of last ditch stretch in the twilight of a long pontificate to touch on certain matters "to be observed or to be avoided" regarding the Most Holy Eucharist.
I remember thanking His Eminence for such a great effort. Then, with a nervous smile, he asked: "Will anyone listen to it?" Feeling terribly embarrassed, I said the opposite of what I was thinking, "Yes, of course!"
