The liturgy is sacred because it is not made by the hands of man; were it otherwise, it would be idolatry. In the liturgy is the burning bush that is not consumed, the heavenly Jerusalem that comes down from heaven, the Incarnation and birth of Jesus, the Transfiguration and Calvary, the Resurrection and Pentecost. In a word, the ecstasy of beauty that pours the fire of God into the hearts of men. ~Nicola Bux, Benedict XVI’s Reform: The Liturgy between Innovation and Tradition
