Psalm 57

 

Summary:

We begin tonight's study with a discussion of the Ordinary, Proper, and Common regarding Mass and the Liturgy of the Hours as well as a discussion of Solemnities, Feasts, Memorials, and Optional Memorials.  We proceed to explore the Benedictus, the Canticle of Zechariah as part of the Ordinary of the Liturgy of the Hours including its historical setting, powerful Old Testament references, and images of light, darkness, and peace.

The second half proceeds to Psalm 57 which we will use when we pray the Morning Office from Thursday week I.  We show the possible connection to David's early flight from Saul and the treachery of Doeg and David's trust in God's deliverance.  We touch upon the constant spiritual threat to our lives.
