VERY REV. DOM PROSPER GUÉRANGER,
ABBOT OF SOLESMES.
SECOND VOLUME OF THE CONTINUATION.
Translated from the French,
REV. DOM LAURENCE SHEPHERD,
MONK OF THE ENGLISH BENEDICTINE CONGREGATION.
THE TIME AFTER PENTECOST.

THE second volume of the Continuation now presented to the Faithful concludes the LITURGICAL YEAR, at least in that portion which is called the Proper of the Time. The Feast of Easter, owing to its having an entire month's range for the variation of its day, changes, each year, the position of the Sundays after Pentecost, by the same number of days; so that it is utterly impossible to put anything like a concurrence between these Sundays and the Proper of Saints.
We intend, therefore, to give the Feast of Saints, occurring between June and December, in a separate Volume; for whose completion we venture to ask the prayers of our readers. It is to their prayers that we attribute the blessing, which God has given to this work; these alone have given us courage and confidence in the task imposed upon us.
