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!

St. Nicholas' "manna"

Canisius | 06 December, 2007 14:11

Dom Guéranger's entry for St. Nicholas mentions a miracle of holy "oil" that comes from the bones of the saint, and the various liturgical texts he gives mention it time and again. This substance, called St. Nicholas's "manna", is still collected today, and is described in fascinating detail on this blog site.
