Lenten Inspiration: Franciscan Sisters Featuring Houston's St. Anne Choir Singing 'Lead Me On'
GREEN BAY, Wisc., April 7, 2014 /Christian Newswire
/ -- Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity invite you to listen, discern and find inspiration from "Lead Me On" by St. Anne Catholic Community Choir, Houston, TX. Following Jesus, may we like St. Francis of Assisi, find our calling, and peace and hope within us. fscc-calledtobe.org
According to Choir Director James Ross, "Lead Me On" by Brian Schmidt is a sung prayer filled with hope for guidance along life's pilgrimage toward light and peace, filled with trust even in times that may present challenge. It is especially appropriate for the Christian journey through Lent, a time, when through prayer, fasting and good works, the Church asks us to collectively turn away from sin and be faithful to the Gospel."
"The choir adopted this song as a theme for our pilgrimage to Rome last year and sang at, not only at St. Peter's Basilica, but at all the churches we visited as we journeyed through Italy. While not speaking directly of this song, Pope Francis captured its sentiment fully in a recent article in America magazine speaking at the tomb of Pope John XXIII: "The life of Blessed John XXIII is a lesson in how obedience and trust in God lead to an interior peace that is naturally recognized by and shared with others."
Holy Family Conservatory Administrator Sr. Carol Ann Gambsky, OSF commented "This is a beautiful arrangement that lifts my spirit heavenward. Heartfelt singing, nice choral sound and inspirational."
Established in 1869, the Roman Catholic Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity serve in Catholic Health Care, Education and Parish-Community Service in the Midwest, Central and Southwest United States.
