Francis Cardinal Arinze to lead Papal Lenten retreat

CNS has the story:

VATICAN CITY (CNS) — Pope Benedict XVI has asked the former head of the Vatican’s worship and sacraments congregation, Nigerian Cardinal Francis Arinze, to lead his 2009 Lenten retreat.

During the March 1-7 retreat, the 76-year-old cardinal will focus on the theme “The Priest Encounters Jesus and Follows Him.”

I do find the trailing comment in the story regarding Cdl. Arinze’s position on inculturation rather interesting in light of his other remarks suggesting that a false inculturation is indeed damaging both to Catholicism and the person it is intended to attract.  Am I missing something here or does that seem out of place?
