Responding to the Psalms – May 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]

The idea is to take an idea from the psalm for your focus for a day or two, for yourself or shared with others.

After each psalm there is space to type or write your own thoughts as a possible personal journal.

“The fifty days from Easter Sunday to Pentecost are celebrated with great exultation as one feast day, or better as one “great Sunday.” These above all others are the days for the singing of the Alleluia.” [Ceremonial of Bishops 371.]
