The Psalms of David -- Psalm 10

The LORD is in His holy temple /
The LORD’s throne is in heaven.

"God's throne is the source of our stability and the foundation of our hope," says Fr. Patrick of this psalm. "If there is any firmness for our lives, any steadfastness for our souls, the cause of such constancy is the immoveable throne of Christ our God. Consequently, in the history of Christian prayer this line has often served as the interpretive antiphon for Psalm 10, especially on the Feast of Our Lord's Ascension."

My favorite usage of the Psalms is in our Festal worship!
