We need more American clerics who know and love the rites to go to Rome to study sacred liturgy at the Pontifical Athenaeum of Sant'Anselmo. It's a really small Benedictine university (with a great well-stocked library!) in Rome where one can graduate with a licence in sacred liturgy.
The Pontifical Institute of Liturgy there has a great licence programme organized around four main themes: history and sources, fundamental liturgy, sacraments and sacramentals, and time, space and art.
St. Anselm himself, a monk, bishop and founder of mediaeval scholasticism, defined his theological enterprise as fides quaerens intellectum (faith in search of understanding).
