This monumental liturgical work, comprising fifteen volumes, was the life-long labor of Benedictine Abbot Dom Guéranger. Written with the heart of a seraphic contemplative, the holy abbot takes the reader on a daily spiritual pilgrimage through the liturgies of both the East and the West as he immerses the soul into the very life of the ecclesia orans et adorans (the church praying and adoring). The author achieves this by providing daily entries corresponding to the yearly cycle of the Church’s worship in both her divine seasonal feasts and those of her saints. Each day begins with a rich and provocative meditation on the mystery of faith to be celebrated, as well as historical information about the mystery; this is followed by excerpts from the Roman Missal’s Mass of the day (complete with Propers, i.e., Introits, Collects, Offertory prayers, etc ) as well a host of exquisite hymns from the divine office which are coupled with varied and sundry sequences garnered from other ancient Catholic rites.

Truly, here is a priceless treasure for understanding the history of the Church and learning about the lives of her Saints. Such was the way in which the father of Saint Therese of Lisieux used these volumens, making it a daily routine in the Martin home to read from them to his five daughters.

This is a book to be read and studied for a lifetime. Even a once through reading will immeasureably increase your knowledge and love of the history and true liturgical life of the Church.
