Elizabeth asked if we can pray the Psalter for Resa.
This is a very normal and appropriate thing
to do for grief.
Often in Orthodox churches the Psalter is read
overnight in Vigil with the beloved whose body rests
now in the Church.
There are 20 Kathismas in the Orthodox Psalter.
I will do the first Kathisma today;
if you want to join in, perhaps leave a comment
with which Kathisma you wish to do
(going in order would be best).
If you do not have a printed copy of the Psalter
it can be found online
Once I see how many are interested in doing this,
I will be able to ascertain how many people we need
to pray the Psalter in it's entirety.
With all things,
please do not forsake your personal prayer rule.
If you feel you are able to join,
you are most welcome.
But please do not feel sad if you know you are not able to.
May the memory of Resa be eternal!
Blessed are those who you have taken O Lord!
Lord have mercy
Lord have mercy
Lord have mercy
