Responding to The Psalms – March 2023

A project of the Spirituality Committee of the Bishops’ Conference of England and Wales

So, then, my son, let whoever reads this book of Psalms take the things in it quite simply as God-inspired. 

In every case the words you want are written down for you, and you can say them as your own.

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. You could note your own thoughts as a possible personal journal.
