The Power of Song

– Br. Michael, ofm

Have you ever had a moment when a song moves you and your soul deeply?

It is like you are completely wrapped up in the words and music as it speaks to the divine spark in you. It feels like the song was written just for you as it sings truth and beauty and goodness.


I have had those moments. Completely wrapped up in the words of song as they seem to surround me and flow through me. I have had the melody of a song move me, both literally and my heart. I have had songs and music become my very prayer, expressing the depths of my journey, the longing of my heart and my pondering with God. I love those moments! These are God moments. These are the intimacy of the divine woven into us – the very beating and movement of our heart.


Several years ago, a moment like this happened for me with one of Cathy AJ Hardy’s songs. I couldn’t believe how Cathy’s words and music seemed to be something coming from my depth and my story. I listened to the song on repeat. It became part of my prayer time. It whispered through me in my days. The power of song and music. The power of God at work in the ordinary of life. The power of Divine Love penetrating my very life.


Are you looking for a moment of divine encounter?

Are you in need of some uplifting and encouragement?

Is your soul seeking to be renewed?

Is your heart longing to connect with God again?
