Your Christmas Present: The Psalms

"The Word became flesh and made His dwelling among us." John 1:14

The Christmas season is a celebration of God's word. Christmas is the perfect time to intensify our reading of the Scriptures. In this Christmas season, I invite you to ask for and accept the grace to read the Psalms in the following 15-day format. In the Catholic community, 15 days is the briefest possible Christmas season. As you read and pray the Psalms, you will have the Christmas the Lord wants you to have and begin this new year with your eyes fixed on Jesus.

Day 1 Psalms 1 — 10
Day 2 Psalms 11 — 21
Day 3 Psalms 22 — 31
Day 4 Psalms 32 — 41
Day 5 Psalms 42 — 51
Day 6 Psalms 52 — 61
Day 7 Psalms 62 — 72
