"Persecution, which has not yet relented in our regard, under the ever-varying depositaries of secular power, has retarded the publication of this volume far beyond our worst expectations. Our readers will, we trust, be good enough to believe that we regret these forced delays as much as they do.

"May we hope that they will please to remember us and our Monastic brethren in their Prayers to God, and thus aid us to bear the brunt of Hell's violence, so particularly directed against the sons of Dom Guéranger.

"We implore Our Lord to vouchsafe in return to pour upon our readers a share in the Blessings promised by Him to those who suffer for Justice' sake."
Fr. L. F., O.S.B.

A 15-volume treasury of Catholic theology, history, hagiography, and apologetics, originally published in the 1840s. Long out of print, this classic work of The Holy Abbot, Dom Guéranger,
on The Roman Liturgy, is available again.

A personal friend of Louis Veuillot, Cardinal Pie, and Blessed Pope Pius IX, and staunch defender
of The Papacy as well as The Roman Liturgy, Dom Guéranger has written a work that
some have called "The Summa of The Liturgy". Essential for every Catholic
who loves the ancient Liturgy and The Life of Prayer.

Blessed Pope Pius IX, in his Eulogy of Dom Guéranger,
credited him with three great accomplishments:

The revival of The Monastic Tradition in France;

Restoration of The Roman Liturgy and Gregorian Chant;

The Theological justification for two Dogmatic Definitions:
That of The Immaculate Conception;
And The Infallibility of The Roman Pontiff.
