In a psalm, instruction vies with beauty. We sing for pleasure. We learn for our profit.
What experience is not covered by a reading of the psalms?
I come across the words: A song for the beloved, and I am aflame with desire for God’s love.
I go through God’s revelation in all its beauty, the intimations of resurrection, the gifts of his promise. I learn to avoid sin. I see my mistake in feeling ashamed of repentance for my sins
from The Explanations of the Psalms by Saint Ambrose – 1
We have used the Sunday Responsorial psalm to offer a focus for reflection during the week ahead for yourself or share with others.
There is space on each page for you to note your own thoughts as a possible personal journal.
