Lenten Resources

Last week, I wanted to prepare for you a little reflection on the Seven Penitential Psalms, but in looking for them online I found an even great resource! And then we had some technical difficulties to keep us off the internet for about a week and so now I shall share with you this little gift.

  The USCCB (US Catholic Conference of Bishops) has a wonderful website with many suggestions, explanations, and letters for the faithful to help them better enter into this season on Lent.(click to go to their website)

They even have the 7 Penitential Psalms in audio format as well as a reflection to go with them.  Here is a better, briefer, little note on the importance of the penitential psalms:
During times when we wish to express repentance and especially during Lent, it is customary to pray the seven penitential psalms.  The penitential designation of these psalms dates from the seventh century.  Prayerfully reciting these psalms will help us to recognize our sinfulness, express our sorrow and ask for God’s forgiveness (http://www.usccb.org/prayer-and-worship/liturgical-year/lent/seven-penitential-psalms-songs-of-suffering-servant.cfm)

Enjoy!
