Excerpt from American Ecclesiastical Review, 1890, Vol. 2 It was on this account, namely, that the Psalms are a form of divine teaching, containing precepts of right living as well as a pattern of prayer, that in the ancient Church clerics, without exception, were required to know by memory the entire Psalter, before they could be promoted to sacred orders. 3 And the Church fulfils the daily task of her triple mission when she enjoins upon her priests and religious the daily recitation of the Psalms. They express the progressive steps of the spiritual life in well-arranged order, marking, as ascetical writers mostly divide it, the purgative or penitent, the illuminative orjustified, the unitive or sanctified state of the soul.
