The Psalms Study Set Questions (56 pages) guide participants through their study with thought-provoking questions about the Psalms and related portions of the Catechism of the Catholic Church. Comprehensive Study Set Responses (40 pages) provide answers and further commentary on the questions as well as a substantive review of each lesson. Each lesson is designed to be followed by the corresponding talk from the DVD or CD series.
About Psalms: The School of Prayer:
With Psalms: The School of Prayer, The Great Adventure moves from telling the Story to making it personal. While the historical books of the Bible recount God's creative and redemptive acts in history, the Psalms reveal Israel's response to God's covenant offer and serve as a model for our response to Him. Indeed, one could say that the historical books tell the "outside" of the story of Israel by giving an historical perspective, while the Psalms tell the "inside" story, which comes from the deeply personal perspective of one who is seeking God. Our communication with God is enhanced by a deeper understanding of the book of Psalms and of the individual psalms that reside in each of our hearts.
Your Bible study group will:
• Discover a rich school of prayer for all life's circumstances.
• Experience the transforming power of the responsorial psalms in the Mass.
• Learn how to visualize the psalms in order to empower their meditation.
• Study the many ways the Psalms foretell the life and mission of Jesus.
• See how the Psalms can empower your prayer to become an honest and personal dialogue with God.

The Psalms are a collection of Love Letters written to God by King David. King David was a sinner, but unlike a lot of sinners, King David always was sorry for his sins and he always repented and did penance. This is one of many proofs that God is merciful to a repentant sinner. This is a wonderful Faith Formation study for the Year of Mercy.
