Papal Prayer Intention for March 2019

Each month a prayer intention is released, either for a universal need or for a specific evangelism need, through which Catholics are asked to join in praying with the Holy Father, Pope Francis.

The intention for March 2019 is:

That Christian communities, especially those who are persecuted, feel that they are close to Christ and have their rights respected.

Con te partiro

I’ve always enjoyed this piece of music, from the moment I first heard Andrea Bocelli sing it as a duet with Sarah Brightman. It remains for me a stirring piece of music that pierces the soul.

The version below, performed by orchestra and children’s choir, is one of the versions released to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the original production.

It is, quite simply, well worth listening to. Enjoy!

Baba Yetu

I’ve heard/seen a few versions of this particular piece of music as I’ve ‘surfed’ through YouTube. This version, conducted by the composer himself, is one of the best.

The words, so I’m told, are the words of the Lord’s Prayer in Swahili, which Christopher Tin has set to a masterful arrangement. Enjoy!
