The Catholic Companion to the Psalms

Here is the latest in author Mary Kathleen Glavich's popular "Catholic Companion" series. The Catholic Companion to the Psalms is a complete, accessible and fascinating exploration of the Psalms and why they are (and should be) precious to Catholics today, just as they were for Basil the Great, Cyril of Alexandria, Francis Xavier, Teresa of Avila, Thomas More and many others in the Catholic tradition.

The Catholic Companion is a treasury of methods for understanding and praying the psalms. The purpose of this book is to bring the psalms to life for all Catholics and entice them to begin or continue to mine the riches of these simple but powerful prayers, and to use them for ardent heart-to-heart conversations with God.
