Pray the Psalms with Us

It is not possible to provide the entire Cistercian Office here, but we would like to make available a list of the psalms for the various hours of the Divine Office. The numbering used here is found in the Greek Septuagint, the Latin Vulgate, and the English Grail Psalter.

Over a two-week period, we sing all 150 of the Psalms during the Divine Office. To do this, we split them up singing some of the them the first week and the rest of them the second week. Thus, you will see that we refer to which week we are in as "odd" or "even."

To determine which week of the two-week cycle we are singing, use this tip. If the previous Sunday is an odd number (1st week in Lent, 3rd week in Easter, 21st week in common time), then we will be singing the odd-week cycle. If the previous Sunday is an even number, then we will be singing the even-week cycle.
