The psalms are "the masterwork of prayer in the Old Testament" and they "remain essential to the prayer of the Church... They are suitable for people of every condition and time" (Catechism of the Catholic Church #2585-86, 2597). From the very beginning of the Church's history, the psalms have played a central role for believers. Now, you can discover the Book of Psalms anew through this carefully crafted audio retreat.
Composed of 150 beautiful prayers, the Book of Psalms is an immense and integral part of the Old Testament. You might be overwhelmed or unsure of where to start when praying the Psalms. In A Retreat with the Psalms, Fr. Guinan, O. F. M. , Ph. D. , a renowned Old Testament scholar, expertly guides you through these timeless works. In this retreat, you will follow the model provided by the Divine Office.
You will begin with an introduction to the Office, especially the Morning and Evening Prayer. Each of these has two psalm readings, and they are organized into a four-week cycle. The psalms are carefully selected and structured according to the days of the week. This retreat is ideal for both communal and individual prayer settings.
In A Retreat with the Psalms, you will both discover the vitality of the psalms and deepen your relationship with God through prayer.
