We Sing

“Singing is for one who loves.” A quote from a pop singer? No, from St. Augustine, quoted in the General Instruction of the Roman Missal. Another quote there: “the one who sings, prays twice.” Music has a unique way of touching the soul, of expressing the inexpressible, of giving wings to our prayer. We have a number of musical groups, cantors, instrumentalists, all who help lift our hearts to God. If God has blessed you with the gift, consider putting it to use serving our people at prayer and giving glory to God!
