"What is urgent is the evangelization of a world that not only does not know the basic aspects of Christian dogma, but in great part has lost even the memory of the cultural elements of Christianity."

                          Pope John Paul II

The Entire Book of Psalms: Downloadable Audio Files in Latin

 

Listen to the The Holy Psalter

Complete audio files for those who find on-line reading both burdensome and uncomfortable, and who would much more profit from listening to the Psalms. We have found that many in this digital age of competing distractions would prefer simply to close their eyes and reflect on what is being read, or to learn to read the Psalms in Latin in conjunction with  the audio file.

 

 

The Book of Psalms: Downloadable Audio Files in Latin

Do you wish to learn the HOLY PSALTER  — the Book of Psalms — in Latin?

Listen to audio files of each chapter, or download them

You can follow the Latin and English text at http://newadvent.org/bible/psa001.htm   (be sure to click on the "Latin Vulgate Bible" link just above the "Douay Rheims Bible" to arrive at the Psalms in Latin).

It is a wonderful opportunity for the Catholic Clergy, Religious and Laity to learn the Divine Office — or the Liturgy of the Hours — in Latin as well as the more familiar English. Please remember that each Psalm, as you listen to it, is prayed — not merely recited. You will encounter imperfection.

We nevertheless invite you to join us — and make perfect in your hearts what passes haltingly from our lips. We ask Mary Immaculate, the Most Holy Mother of God, to assist us in her unspeakable love for her children — for it is She who prompts us to seek the face of her Son. She knows the lisping of mere children and placing her gentle fingers on our lips teaches us better to pray. How much our Mother loves us!

All that is good and holy in these prayers is of God. All that is imperfect and faulty is ours. We humbly ask God, and we ask you, to overlook all that is wanting.

"Obsedit me foderunt manus meas et pedes meos. Dinumeraverunt omnia ossa mea ipsi vero consideraverunt et inspexerunt me. Diviserunt sibi vestimenta mea et super vestem meam miserunt sortem." (Psalm 21.17-18)


 

  • The Seven Penitential Psalms are in Red (Psalms 6, 31, 37, 50, 101, 129 and 142)

  • The "Hallel Psalms" (Psalms 113-118) are in Fuschia
    They are called , "Hallel", because they begin with the acclamation, "Halleluiah!" Jesus Christ and His disciples sang them as they went out from celebrating the Passover Meal, where the Lord instituted the Sacrament of the Eucharist, unto the Mount of Olives. They went forth singing these psalms. In some translations it says reciting, but the psalms were chanted. (See Saint Luke 14 verse 26 onwards. )
