Responding to The Psalms – January 2022


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

“The Responsorial Psalm is an integral part of the Liturgy of the Word which has great liturgical and pastoral importance since it fosters meditation on the Word of God.: [GIRM n.61]

In that sense it allows us to keep our minds on the Sunday readings throughout the week if we reflect on a verse for one or two days, and then move onto the next verse.

The question/comments that follow each verse of the psalm are for personal reflection Some might be good for sharing with another, or a small group. Some might be just personal to you.
