Reviews - What do customers think about The Catholic Companion to the Psalms?

Abundance of Inspiration and Practical Ideas  Nov 30, 2008
True to her word, author and educator Mary Kathleen Glavich has created a treasury of methods for understanding and praying the psalms. And she has done it in clear, well organized text supplemented with notes and sidebars. Each chapter, from history of the psalms to praying lectio divina and Liturgy of the Hours with them, brims with examples and suggestions.

In a chapter on personalizing the psalms, Glavich creates a dialogue with God: "The Lord is my shepherd. (How grateful I am that you care for me, Lord.)" She also substitutes her own name for the personal pronouns. When she writes of Christian adaptations, Glavich points out that Hebrews prayed the psalms as the Chosen People, and Catholics pray them "with and for the Church and in union with Jesus Christ." As a result, the "I" "me" and "mine" in psalms we pray in community refer to the one body of Christ, the Church. And if a psalm doesn't "mesh" with our personal status (we may not be in the depths of despair) we pray it in the name of other Church members. A margin "psalm note" alongside this material suggests a web site for listening to the psalms sung in Hebrew (

There's a list of psalms for all seasons and for special circumstances from joyfulness to feeling hopeless. Other lists offer concrete steps for studying the psalms and praying them with music. Glavich provides a glossary of Hebrew concepts and a five-page annotated bibliography featuring bibles, versions of the psalms, commentaries, and books about psalms. In short, anyone interested in praying the psalms will find an abundance of inspiration and practical ideas in Mary Kathleen Glavich's Catholic Companion to the Psalms.
