The summer heat is arriving in full force in Rome, which is why Benedict XVI toured St. Peter's Square with the characteristic “Saturn” hat, it's the red sun-hat that popes usually wear in the summer. The pope then continued his catechesis on prayer. Today he reflected on the Psalms, which he defined as “the main book of prayers.”
Benedict XVI“These inspired songs teach us how
to speak to God, expressing ourselves and the whole range of our human
experience with words that God himself has given us.”
pope announced that in his next few catechesis he would reflect on a
Psalm every Wednesday in order to help Christians with their prayers.
But this will take place in August because the next general audience
won't be until August 3rd.
