Along those very same lines, Archbishop Alexander K. Sample of Portland, Oregon has argued that "an authentic and faithful renewal and reform of the sacred liturgy is not only part of the New Evangelization—it is essential to its fruitfulness."  
 
In this collection of timely essays, Brian Williams (the "Liturgy Guy") explains why restoration of the sacred to the Holy Mass must be a top priority for the Church. Tackling a wide range of topics such as ad orientem worship, kneeling for Communion, the use of Latin in the Mass, and a return to male only altar servers, the Liturgy Guy explains why the recovery of our a Catholic tradition is not simply a matter of preference, but rather one of urgent necessity.
