I’ve just recently joined my Parish and their Traditional Choir. I will be joining them this coming Sunday for Sunday Mass for the first time-- had first my rehearsal last night. This is a return to Music Ministry for me, after nearly 25 years away.
Please pray and rejoice with me, that I am once again able to lift my voice in joyful prayer and song with the Choir, that I may glorify God with the Gift of music that he has so graciously granted to me, and that God may bless the other lovely voices in that Choir-- for choir singing is a small taste of the lovely sounds of the Angels in Heaven.
*O glorious Saint Cecilia, who chose to die instead of denying your King, we pray you please to help us as His fair praise we sing. We lift our hearts in joyous song to honor Him this way. And while we sing, remembering, to sing is to doubly pray.
At once in our hearts and in our tongues we offer double prayer sent heavenward on winged notes to praise God dwelling there. While in our hearts and tongues we try with song to praise God twice, we ask dear saint, to help us be united close to Christ!
Lord, hear our requests. Through the intercession of St. Cecilia, please grant what we ask. Amen.*
Thank you all, and God bless!
In the joy of Christ,
