Tis the season for our Psalter Groups again! Yay!
For those of you not familiar with these groups, here’s a quick rundown:
The Psalter is the book of Psalms broken up into twenty sections called kathismata. People are placed in groups of twenty, one person per kathisma. Each person begins their readings for Day 1 of 40 on a different kathisma. For example, I’ll read 1, you’ll read 2, Mary will read 3, and so on. Between each group, the ENTIRE Psalter is read every day during the fast! We normally get between 5 and 6 groups so that means it’s read 5 or 6 times a day. That’s incredible!
Many of our saints, including the greats like St. John Chrysostom and St. Basil have written many things on the importance of daily Psalter reading. You may also want to check out this post on The Benefits of Psalter Groups.
So if you’re interested in joining please leave YOUR BAPTISMAL NAME AND EMAIL ADDRESS in the comment section of this post. Be sure to leave BOTH because I oftentimes use your email address to differentiate between others with the same name.
I will have the groups and everyone’s assigned readings up between by end of day to give everyone time to sign up since I was late in posting this sign up post. But don’t worry, if you stumble upon this post after the fast has begun, you can still sign up. It’s never too late to join in!
You can purchase a pocket Psalter here. You can also use the Book of Psalms in your Bible for your daily readings!
