Online Presentation: The Psalms and Poetry (with Alice Camille and Paul Boudreau)

April 25 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm


The Language of Praise from the Psalms to Mary Oliver (And Beyond)

Alice Camille, Paul Boudreau, and Carl McColman

Thursday, April 25, 2024 7:30-9:00 pm Online — Click here to register.

The most beloved book in the Old Testament – perhaps even the entire Bible – is the Psalms. This collection of 150 Hebrew hymns formed the spiritual life of ancient Israel – and of Jesus, along with monks, nuns, and mystics of every generation since. Modern-day musicians (U2), poets (Mary Oliver), and writers (Nan Merrill) have been influenced by this great biblical prayer-book. For this virtual conversation, join us for an evening celebrating the spirituality of the Psalms and to consider how they continue to influence us. We’ll look at our favorite Psalms, poems and songs inspired by or based on Psalms, and maybe imagine what new psalms for the modern era might be needed.

If you’ve attended Alice, Paul and Carl’s previous programs for the Oratory (on Star Trek and pop music), you know they combine a deep love for the Bible and the spiritual life with an equal appreciation for pop culture. St. Ignatius encourages us to “find God in all things”. Alice, Paul and Carl make the search fun!
