Responding to The Psalms – December 2022

– a project of the Spirituality Committee of the Bishops’ Conference of England and Wales

“Son, all the books of Scripture, both Old Testament and New, are inspired by God and useful for instruction, as the apostle says; but to those who really study it the Psalter yields especial treasure.  Within it are represented and portrayed in all their great variety the movements of the human soul.  It is like a picture, in which you see yourself portrayed and, seeing, may understand and consequently form yourself upon the pattern given.”  

Saint Athanasius to Marcellinus

We have used the Sunday Responsorial psalm to offer a focus for reflection during the week ahead for yourself or share with others.
