Reading this over, I think actually you wanted something else:

That would call for an anchor-like element. A similar thing is a word, 
e. g. the name of the month, which changes over the whole document.

Wouldn't it be the solution if you could set an anchor like "page of 
xyz", and xyz is on page 23, so the text later reads "see page 23"?

And for my special case, in our church monthlies, I wouldn't have to 
change all titles and master pages but only set the first one to the new 
month - and all places which point to it would change.

Is this your MacGuffin?
