The Guéranger Blog

Welcome to the Gueranger Blog! You have stumbled across the notebook I use to record my thoughts as I read through Dom Prosper Gueranger's 15-volume set, The Liturgical Year. I do not have any special expertise in liturgy, but I have some general knowledge of Catholic theology and an enthusiasm for Gueranger's magnum opus. Think of it as the Liturgical Year fan site!

Gueranger and Islam

Is it just me, or does IV, 167-9 seem written for Europe today? You could read it out loud in a city park, and pass it off as having been written last week.

Well, except for the fact that Dom Gueranger thinks that invasions are punishment for sin. Only a few people today say that, and they get so much bad publicity that they always retract their statements a few weeks later. Oh, wait--I guess there was someone who didn't retract it; didn't our Lady of Fatima say something to that effect?

I can't help thinking that Gueranger would have made great use of the revelations at Fatima, had they occurred before his time!

Is it me, or does IV, 167-9 seem to not actually appear anywhere in this post?

(You've made me curious now, especially with the "invasions are punishment for sin" bit. For shame!)

If you provide me with either the translation, or with a link to the text, all will be forgiven.
