I Rejoiced When the Said Unto Me, Let us Go to the House of the Lord

Sacred Heart Musicians had a fantastic trip on Sunday, October 9, 2016. We visited the Carmel of Jesus, Mary and Joseph in Valparaiso. While there, we prayed the office of None with the Sisters, and we met with Sister Maria at the turn (where they receive written and verbal prayer requests).

Then, we traveled to Our Lady of Guadalupe Seminary in Denton. While there, we sang for the seminarians, and prayed Vespers and Benediction with them. After prayer, we ate supper with several of the seminarians.

Throughout the day, the prayers were almost entirely in Latin, with lots of silence.  I pray that God will use this experience to spark a desire in the hearts of the children to consider the religious life.

Share the Faith through Music

Here are recordings of some of the songs we will sing at Our Lady of Guadalupe Seminary in Denton, Nebraska.

A Repeating Alleluia: This song is so fun to sing!

 

I Lift My Soul to You  – beautiful Psalm text

 

The Lord is My Shepherd – fantastic setting of a favorite text

 

Gracious Spirit, Dwell with Me – great prayer to the Holy Spirit. This small choir is fantastic!
