In this volume, John Paul II devotes himself to promoting the Liturgy of the Hours as a prayer of the People of God. The Holy Father provides enlightening reflections on each of the psalms and canticles, leading the reader to deeper meditation and understanding. As prayers the psalms take us through the whole range of life experiences. These reflections, originally delivered at the Pope’s weekly Wednesday audiences, will be an invaluable companion to those who pray the breviary or simply love the scriptures.For your convenience, this book contains the Psalms and Canticles of the four week cycle of Morning Prayer. The informative and inviting introduction contains an in-depth history of Church practices involving the psalms.
‘. . . the Book of Psalms remains the ideal source of Christian prayer and will continue to inspire the Church in the new millennium.’From the introduction by John Paul II.
