(The translation of the Psalms and the brief introductory comments on the Psalms of this Little Office of the Blessed Virgin are taken largly from: The Psalms and Canticles by George O'Neill, S.J. [Bruce Publishing Co. 1937.] The late Father O'Neill's work has long been out of print.)
The Psalms are the words of God teaching men how to pray. They were written under the inspiration of the Holy Ghost. They have been embodied in the liturgy of the Church, and their accents touch the hearts of men. They respond to all the changes of the human spirit, and answer its every need. They are a mighty symphony of praise and jubilation ascending continually to the Throne of God from every nation.
