I enjoyed singing these two songs this past week at Mass: “Transfigure Us, O Lord” (by Bob Hurd) and “I Received the Living God.” One of the adult singers came up to me after Mass on Sunday and said that when she sang “I Received the Living God and my heart is full of joy,” she really meant it and felt it and wanted to share that experience with the whole congregation.

Lord, thank you for the gift of music. Bless the work of your musicians and all those who love to sing your praises.
