Common Psalms

The Lectionary includes twenty-two Common (Seasonal) Psalms. These may be used in place of the psalm of the day in order to facilitate the singing of the psalms in all Masses. The choice of Common Psalm should be guided by its relevance to the readings of the particular celebration. Suitable choices are indicated for each Sunday and feast day in the Repertoire recommendations.
