Resurgent in the Midst of Crisis

This is the best book that I have read on the liturgy for several years.  It would be difficult to recommend it too highly.  Since the tsunami of Second Vatican Council slammed into the Church, the Church has experienced an unprecedented  crisis propelled by the destruction of one of her greatest treasures, her immemorial sacred liturgy.  The result has been confusion, dismay and devastation.

But to the dismay of our aging revolutionaries, recent decades have witnessed the growth of a counter-reformation led by the young who find in the Church's traditional liturgy a perennial witness to the orthodox faith, a rich source of grace for the interior life, an abundant spring of missionary activity and charity, and a living rock upon which the enemies of Christ, both without and within the Church, are dashed.

Prof Peter Kwasniewski's book (Resurgent in the Midst of Crisis) is a scholarly, yet highly readable and accessible, study of this subject.  Every concerned Catholic would benefit from reading this book prayerfully.
