It is with great pleasure that I can announce a new liturgical blog, "In the Sight of Angels". This blog hopes to focus on the liturgical year, taking Dom Prosper Guéranger, and his magnum opus "The Liturgical Year" as its inspiration.
Named after a remark of the self-same Guéranger, "In Sight of Angels" hopes to offer material for the major feastdays of the Roman calendar, as well as insights from Dom Guéranger and other authors on the liturgical year. We hope to describe the liturgy of the Catholic Church throughout the liturgical year, including the Mass and the Divine Office. It is also hoped to feature biographies of saints and their liturgies on their feast days. (The blog will use the liturgical calendar of 1962 as its basis, though may, at times, comment on later developments.)
Posting proper will commence on Advent Sunday (Sunday 30 November), with posts being made 24 hours, or thereabouts, in advance to account for time zone differences. Until then we will feature a précis of the General Preface to "The Liturgical Year" and some other short pieces. After that date, there will be posts for all 1st and 2nd class feasts; the Collect will be given in both Latin and English and relevant links, commentaries, and other materials.
The blog can be accessed at the following Internet location:
