B 103 The Penitential Psalms Today: A Journey with Psalms 6, 32, 38, 51, 102, 130 and 143


The psalms known as ‘penitential’ do not at first appear to be connected in the psalter. However, they have been linked from the earliest times of Christian commentary, and in fact display important connections.

This practical study looks at their use and interpretation, and how, when read together, they offer a pastoral guide to penitence and the hope of forgiveness.
