THE HOURS OF OUR LADY #13






 

(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.)

 INTRODUCTION 
"St. Thomas More repeated his favorite Psalm, the Miserere, on the scaffold;


 St. John Fisher wrote a treatise on the Penitential Psalms, and he, too, died repeating verse after verse from Psalms. So, almost at the same time, did St. Francis Xavier. So did St. Theresa; So did St. Francis de Sales. St. Vincent de Paul escaped from imprisonment in Africa by means of a Psalm."
(Towards Loving the Psalms, by Father C. C. Martindale, S.J.).
