 The use of the Psalms goes back thousands of years: The Book of Psalms is a collection of 150 sacred hymns for private and public worship. In the Temple the Psalms would have been sung by two alternating groups. This “back and forth” movement happens throughout the Mass, for example “The Lord be with you…….And with your Spirit”. Jesus would have recited the exact same Psalms that we do today.
