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!

The Theological Apostles

Canisius | 12 April, 2006 16:19

Dom Gueranger remarks (VI,350) that "Peter, who was the first to confess the Divinity of Jesus, represents faith: and John, who leaned upon the breast of the Man-God, represents love." John, of course, is also the apostle who emphasizes love so much in his writings.

It seems to me that one could just as well say that James represents hope, because he was the first apostle to die a martyr's death. This way Peter, James, and John correspond to faith, hope, and love.

I love neat stuff!
