Mount of Olive Psalms

In 07 Observation on 2012/04/22 at 9:11 AM

Right from its earliest days, the faithful began to recite the Psalms with new insight.  They recognized Jesus as the new David.  Now, they heard Christ speaking through the Psalms and recognized the unity between the two Testaments which Jesus had consistently demonstrated.

On the Mount of Olives, Jesus prayed the Psalms of which he was the subject.  ”Jesus’ utterly personal prayer and his praying in the words of faithful, suffering Israel are here seamlessly united.” J. Ratzinger
