The Memoirs of Fr Louis Bouyer Available Again

Quite a number of NLM readers were dismayed when it looked as if the new English translation of Bouyer's Memoirs had gone out of print. Happily, Amazon has the Memoirs back in stock again, ready for immediate delivery.

Apart from being a prime source of eye-witness information about how the liturgical reform was conducted (and, I assure you, the details are as unedifying as episodes from the lives of certain Renaissance princes of the Church), the Memoirs is, more importantly, a witty, engaging, and beautifully told story of a life spent in service of Christ and the Church. Now, more than ever, we need to learn from Bouyer and we need to emulate his virtues.
