I was delighted this week when The Kathisma Psalter with Nine Canticles arrived from Holy Myrrhbearers Monastery. It has taken me a long time to get to ordering a Septuagint Psalter – and switching translations of psalms or prayers that one is familiar with is not so simple – but I have been using their little Manual of the Hours and appreciating it, so thought that this was a good step forward. It is also the first time that I have actually prayed the Septuagint Psalms (at least privately) and I have actually been quite surprised at things that suddenly appear out of nowhere!

The only trouble is that I will have to do something about the binding!
