THE HOURS OF OUR LADY #15

After a long pause due to Lent and other obligations I am continuing my posting of The Little Office of the Blessed Virgin Mary:



 

(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.)

"Not only does God occupy the most important place in our prayers, but out of the 150 Psalms that make up the Psalter, there are only seventeen in which God is not mentioned in the very first verse. Constant and most intimate union with God--that is the most salient characteristic of the Psalms."
(Vigouroux, M.B. II, 655).
