We here at the Metropolis of Detroit would like to wish everyone a blessed Lent as they begin the great fast.
Lent is a time when we refocus our efforts in our journey with Christ. This journey will take us to the foot of the cross, through the grave, and to the glorious resurrection of the third day, and the way is not always easy.
Prayer can be a wonderful aid to us at all times, and especially during the Great Lent. As such, we would like to extend the invitation to pray through the Psalms (often referred to as the prayer book of the Church) with us over the coming weeks.
Each weekday for the next six weeks we will post a section of the Psalms to prayerfully read, as well as a brief reflection or commentary.
Today's reading: Psalms 1-6
"A Psalm implies serenity of soul; it is the author of peace... it is the elementary exposition of beginners, the improvement of those advancing, the solid support of the perfect, the voice of the Church... A psalm is the work of angels, a heavenly institution, the spiritual incense." —from St. Basil the Great's Homily on Psalm 1
Praying through the recommended Psalms each day should take five to ten minutes. We hope you will join us!
