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!

No wine for Good Friday

Canisius | 15 April, 2006 03:58

Update on the Mass of the pre-sanctified. I got my hands on a ritual book, and found that the funny business with the wine is no longer a part of the Good Friday ritual.

Just as well, from my point of view. It seemed a lot like simulating a sacrament. But it would be interesting to know how the custom got started, and why it was abolished.
