"Once again, at this point, we must speak plainly: there is practically no liturgy worthy of the name today in the Catholic Church. Yesterday's liturgy was hardly more than an embalmed cadaver. What people call liturgy today is little more than this same cadaver decomposed."
Louis Bouyer, The decomposition of Catholicism, trans. Charles Underhill Quinn (Chicago: Franciscan Herald Press, 1969 ), 105.
