St. Augustine

He prays for us as our priest, he prays in us as our head, he is the object of our prayers as our God.

Today’s Office of Readings with St. Augustine’s description of our prayer with Christ as the high priest, the head of the Mystical Body, and as the second person of God is so deep and beautiful.

Then, let’s couple that to praying the Psalms. These are prayers and songs that are divinely inspired Word of God.

Through praying of the Psalms, notably as we do in the Liturgy of the Hours, we are praying the Word of God through God with God and in God.

Just scratching the surface of understanding that, I’m overwhelmed.
