I have memorized Psalm 95 after saying it on a regular basis for some time. Perhaps I could memorize the others if I rotated them.

95 ---, but, you know, I'm well aware there are others, so the comment by 95 of 'there are others? shock kind of took me a bit aback. Can't vote the way it's set up, as yes, I know there ARE others. . .

Same one too. And for the same reason -- I like its joy!

I used to rotate them. Now I use The Divine Office; so go with whatever they have for the day.

I use Psalm 67. It's the one called for in the Rule of St. Benedict.

Ditto. I know about the others, and when I use Universalis I recite whatever pops up, but I frequently just use 95 from memory as I'm going about my preps.

Too bad that those who use more than one can't vote.

Indeed! When using the LOTH, I use 94(95) on Sundays, and 66(67) on weekdays except where 66 is one of the psalms for Lauds or Vespers.

My reasons are deeply rooted in tradition. Of course 94 is the invitatory par excellence, but 66 in the monastic tradition was always used to open Lauds, sung in directum (without antiphon) every day. So as an invitatory it makes sense.

When I use the Monastic LOTH, we have a different one every day as our psalmody is on a weekly cycle: 94 on Sundays, 28 on Mondays, 66 on Tuesdays, 45 on Wednesdays, 23 on Thursdays, 8 on Fridays and 80 on Saturdays.

These days being summer and being busier in summer, I use the LOTH. After labour day I'll revert to the Monastic Office.

I switched to the 1960 Roman Breviary which says all the psalms in one week, so I say whichever is first that day. I used to say 95 most day, if I recall.

Psalm. 95...beautiful with first three stanzas focused on God's magnificence, power and enduring caring love...and last two stanzas have a " hard reality edge" to them that reminds me that I have to work with God's graces and focus on His will...can't be a disciple Of Christ...running on "autopilot"...He demands to be "Number One"...in every aspect of my life.

Always 95 ... for practical reasons:

1) I'm easily confused. So if one of the others is going to come up later in the day with a "use 95 if you already used this one this morning" note, I'd rather just be able to say what's in front of me!

2) Related to the above, I often say some hours alone and some in common, so if I always say 95 alone in the morning then I know that if one of the other invitatory options comes up during the day, I won't be saying the same one twice.

3) I often start as soon as I wake up, after a short morning offering. So Psalm 95, which I have memorised, is a good way to slowly come round so that, by the end of it, I'm ready to tackle a full office (and on a good day might even remember to sync the General Calendar, National Calendar, Dominican Calendar and Diocesan Calendar and check which office I should be saying).
