    You can follow the Latin and English text at 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.
