Liturgy At Saint Louis University

Link (here) to the entire English translation of the new Missale Romano

The Center for Liturgy at Saint Louis University is one of four such liturgical institutes in the United States, three sponsored by major universities: the Notre Dame Center for Pastoral Liturgy, the Georgetown Center for Liturgy, and the Center for Liturgy at Saint Louis University. The fourth Center is the Institute for Liturgical Ministry, Dayton OH.
The Center for Liturgy at Saint Louis University came into existence in Fall of 1993. It was founded by Fr. John Foley, S. J., at the invitation of Fr. Lawrence Biondi, president of the University.

Motivation for this our work is founded in the following statement of Vatican Council II:
Liturgy is the summit toward which the activity of the Church is directed; at the same time it is the fountain from which all her power flows (from the Catholic Church’s Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy).
These words form a mandate for the Church, one that is at once obvious and at the same time unrealized. Catholics would never argue that the Mass is unimportant to them, in fact they would insist the opposite. Yet would they claim as their own the importance that Vatican II gives to liturgy? The Center for Liturgy takes as its mission the realization of the Vatican II vision.

That should be Missale Romanum.
