Join Rev. Patrick J. Griffin, C.M., Executive Director of the Vincentian Center for Church and Society at St. John's University, as he presents "The Psalms: 150 Conversations with God". Each psalm represents a person who turns to his/her God with a prayer that arises from a human heart. The Psalter captures experiences of every kind and echoes voices of need, contrition, and thanksgiving. In our conversation, we shall reflect on these words of our ancestors in faith and recognize how they continue to be our words. Time included for conversation with participants.
