Responding to The Psalms – February 2023


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

“It is possible for us, therefore to find in the Psalter not only the reflection of our own soul’s state, together with precept and example for all possible conditions, but also a fit form of words wherewith to please the Lord on each of life’s occasions, words both of repentance and of thankfulness, so that we fall not into sin; for it is not for our actions only that we must give account before the Judge, but also for our every idle word.”

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.
