The Responsorial Psalm is a precious, though often neglected, part of the Liturgy of the Word. The reflections in this book draw out the riches of the psalm verses set down for each of the Sundays of the three cycles—A, B, and C—and consider the other readings in the light of the psalm. This book will assist preachers looking for a fresh approach to the Sunday readings and all who wish to enter prayerfully into the spirit of the Sunday liturgy and find nourishment therein for their daily lives.

Praise for the Print Edition

For both liturgists and ‘pray-ers’: helpful and well-organized new book from Australian Pauline priest-scholar, Fr. Michael Goonan, SSP. . . . Book is best referenced over 3-year cycle versus one sitting, and is intended as an aid to prayer. Emphasis is on prayer (as Psalms are prayer) that will assist readers in daily living, finding inspiration in the spirit of the Sunday Psalms. . . . The book offers an extensive index of Psalm Texts.

Crux of the News

How many times have you preached or heard someone preach on the Responsorial Psalms? Rarely, but they are part of the Liturgy of the Word. For each Sunday, these reflections pull out the treasures contained therein as they relate to the other readings of that day. Only one page per Sunday, but within is sufficient material for those who preach or for those who want to understand the true spirit of the Sunday Liturgy to satisfy their weekly hunger. Similar material may be hard to locate elsewhere. The content page enables you to find the exact page for every Sunday. The refrain verse of the psalm text is the title of each page. An index of the Psalm text is at the end of the book.
