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!

Marian language in Gueranger, again

Canisius | 26 February, 2006 04:31

In a recent post, I raised again the question of whether the English translation edits out certain bolder Marian devotional phrases that might appear to confuse Mary with Christ. To do Gueranger justice, Iv, 174 has a clear and bold sentence of just the kind of devotion I was thinking about: "We are defiled by sin; may He, through the merits of the tears thou didst shed at the foot of the cross, mercifully cleanse us."
