Of course, Catherine would have been familiar with the whole psalter, which was recited in the course of each week in the Divine Office, so I am not sure that the occurrence of this gradual once a year is of any great significance.

Rather more to the point, Thomas quoted Catherine as writing "Eructavit cor meum verbum bonum dico ego opera mea regi lingua mea stilus scribae velocis" for Psalm 44:2. Now, as far as I can tell, this is not Jerome's Gallican version in the Psalter. So where did she get it from? Is it the Hebraicum or the Vetus Latina? I can't find a copy of either, but I would expect an Old Latin to write "stilus" rather than "calamus" (which sounds more Hebrew...)
