From Gerald Augustinus at The Cafeteria Is Closed, a post quoting H.L. Menckens view of the Liturgy.
Keeping in mind that Mencken wrote this in 1923, while His Holiness, Pope Pius XI was still gloriously reigning, he was quite prophetic:
If they (the American Bishops)keep on spoiling poetry and spouting ideas, the day will come when some extra-bombastic deacon will astound humanity and insult God by proposing to translate the liturgy into American, that all the faithful may be convinced by it.
