The seven Penitential Psalms
From the website Our Catholic Prayers :
" The seven Penitential Psalms have their own special poignancy as the psalmist in each one pours out his
heart to God, many times in great distress over sins that have caused him much physical and emotional anguish. The
authors mix deep contrition with the hope that God’s mercy will restore them to the joy of living in His grace.
The psalmist speaks of the relief he feels after having confessed his sins before God and receiving His
forgiveness. Having his burden of sin lifted allows him to proclaim “Rejoice in the Lord and be glad, you
righteous; sing all you who are upright in heart” (Ps 32:11)."
