This series of catechesis begun by Pope St John Paul II and completed by his successor Pope Benedict XVI is devoted to promoting the Liturgy of the Hours as a prayer of the whole people of God. These two popes offer original and illuminating reflections on each of the psalms and canticles leading the reader to deeper meditation and understanding. The Psalms and Canticles of the four week cycle of Morning and Evening Prayer are also reproduced here for convenience.

Amazing collection of reflections on the Psalms and Canticles of Morning and Evening Prayers in the Catholic Liturgy of the Hours mostly by St. John Paul II (about half of the Evening Prayer reflections are by Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI). They make a point to use the Church Fathers in almost every (if not every) catechesis and reflection they offer. The physical book is of the highest quality and is well organized to help one go deeper into the four-week cycle of the Psalter. Highly recommended for anyone seeking to grow in understanding of the Psalms in the two major "hours" of the Liturgy of the Hours. It could also be used as reference text for studying the psalms in general as it has a well laid-out index in the back for Psalms and Canticles (taken from parts of Scripture other then the Psalms).
