Commentary on the Seven Penitential Psalms - 2 Volume Set
Join St. John Fisher as he takes readers through the Penitential Psalms, some of which follow King David and his sins and repentance. Rather than just reciting the Psalms word for word, St. John delves deeper into the context in which he seeks to bring understanding to these Penitential Psalms. This book quotes Latin phrases of Psalms and provides a translation and explanation. For example, he translates a phrase into the following: “It were vain and unprofitable to pray for them that be dead, to the intent they may be delivered from the pains deserved for sins” and expands on that with the following explanation, “It is without doubt that God accepteth the prayers, sacrifices, and other good works offered to Him for the souls in Purgatory, whereby they may be the sooner delivered from pain”. This book is sure to bring better comprehension of selected Psalms.
