Announcing an Awesome Catholic Year of Faith Song

by Sister Julie Ann on November 1, 2013

We Franciscan Sisters will soon be “opening the door” on a special collaboration that looks back to World Youth Day in Rio, and ahead to Pope Francis’ celebration of the Year of Faith’s conclusion. In the meantime, please enjoy revisiting some of the remarkable artists from Rio and Brazil that we featured earlier this year.

While waiting in expectant hope for the outpouring of many more blessings on our world, we invite you to listen to our own Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity theme song ‘Peace and All Good’ and reflect on what God calls you to be at the conclusion of this year of faith? one year from now?

“Faith is not a light that scatters all our darkness but a lamp that guides our steps in the night and suffices for our journey…It’s light does not simply brighten the interior of the church, nor does it serve solely to build an eternal city in the hereafter; it helps us build our societies in such a way that they can journey toward a future of hope.” [Lumen Fidei: Encyclical, Pope Francis]

    (LUA) My smile costs nothing. Just as the light of the sun can be reflected by the moon in the darkness of night so the light of Christ can be reflected in my smile in our dark world. All are affected by moon glow, but not all regard it. Is my light effective and reaching others?

    I have always felt God strongly in the darkness with a candle or the moon. I think this is because in times of great suffering I grew closest to Jesus-He is my light and comfort!

    Beautiful, simple words. Simple melody. Very rhythmic and soothing.

    Gentle
    Like rain drops-of our own small deeds lived out as God’s love, caring, constancy with us.

  11. Julie says:

    Often when people find themselves in the darkness, they need someone to help them find the light of Christ. Our job in fulfilling our baptismal call is to be that light for someone; to be their full moon.

    Growing up with liturgical music, it speaks volumes and adds a huge dimension to my life, and fills my heart.

  14. James says:

    Tones of clocks ticking, in numerous tones in the background
    There was an ebb and flow, up and down movement to the song, similar to ocean waves, directly effected by the moon, with the tides.
    The natural clock of many cultures…

  15. Jim says:

    The words tell us to reflect God’s light into the darkness of the world so that others see the love and peace of God through us.

    Sun is light, bringing hope and faith.
    We are the full moon, bringing light to people in the dark and cold.

    Singing a song, especially in community is a wonderful way for me to feel closer to Christ and to those around me. He helps me to focus on His love in a special way that I may never come across in spoken, or written words.

  18. cs says:

    Music reaches directly to the heart, which very little else seems to archive. It’s something I need to remember more often.

  19. MH says:

    Music creates and stirs an emotion and that emotion energizes.
