MANITOWOC, Wisc., Apr. 1 /Christian Newswire/ -- The Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity have selected Bruce Cockburns "God Bless The Children as their Franciscanized World song of the month, available as a free download at www.fscc-calledtobe.org/living.asp through April.
"God Bless The Children", from Cockburn's 'Night Vision' album, is a stark but lyrical reflection on salvation, a meditation that offers reassurance during Holy Week, and hope in the wake of Easter. Cockburn has mentioned C.S. Lewis as an influence in the lyrics.
The Franciscanized World page and the Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity were recently featured in Time Magazine's profile of Catholic religious orders innovatively utilizing the Internet. The site invites visitors see the world as Saints Francis and Clare did - realistically, compassionately, finding good and holy possibility in the substance and culture of everyday life. Each month, specially selected songs and images are chosen for spiritual reflection from particular young women discerning their call in life.
"We want to present our life as a viable option for them. Personal invitation is always best; however, we became convinced that real conversations can begin by using the language of images and music." says Sr. Julie Ann Sheahan, OSF, Directress of Vocations
Established in 1869, the Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity serve in Catholic health care, education and parish ministries in 11 U.S. dioceses (Green Bay, Milwaukee, Phoenix, Tucson, Honolulu, Chicago, Marquette, Jackson, Omaha, Columbus and Steubenville).
