He defined himself as "a man of the spiritual order," opposed in every way to the naturalism of his era. It seemed to him, and rightly so, that God's mystery could not be treated as were the human sciences-He transcended them. Throughout his entire life, Dom Guéranger never stopped protesting against "the diminished truths" mentioned in Psalm 11:2.
(From the Preface) The abbot of Solesmes was a man of a great and single idea. He had from the start the genial intuition of his mission, and he devoted himself entirely to it: that of restoring to our disinherited age all the scattered treasures of the thousand-year tradition of Christianity, and above all the forgotten riches of antiquity that the Church preserves in her liturgy. Such was the luminous star that guided him in all his ways. And he envisaged this ideal in all its aspects: . the study and the love of liturgical institutions; the pastoral value of the liturgical year and its ever varied teachings; the doctrinal foundations of this theological locus of first order; the treasures of asceticism and of mysticism which the liturgical seasons and the lives of the Saints bring us every day. In sum, Dom Guéranger placed himself from the beginning at the center of the temple, and he contemplated its every part and all its elements: he is the unequaled liturgist.
