***Zach Sobiech, this young Catholic man died in May 20, 2013 of Osteosarcoma. He wrote this song as a goodbye to his family and friends. RIP via the Mercy of God, Zach. I didn’t know you, but I am glad you recorded this music video.
Of course, this is my favorite song, from the August Rushmovie. I love orchestral music. Henry Mancini’s son composed this song. It is simply the most awesome piece of orchestra music, I’ve ever head. His dad was an awesome conductor and composer too. Gives you goose bumps on your goose bumps! This is “Music of the Heart,” and it just sweeps me away, every time I hear it. I thank God – that I can hear it. Thank You – Jesus!
“This study on the history of church music in the United States during the 20th century is an attempt to recount the events that led up to the present state of the art in our times. It covers the span from the motu proprio Tra le solicitudini, of Saint Pius X, through the encyclical Musicae sacra disciplina of Pope Pius XII and the Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy of the Second Vatican Council and the documents that followed upon it. In knowing the course of development, musicians today may build on the accomplishments of the past and so fulfill the directives of the Church.”
" The “door of faith” (Acts 14:27) is always open for us, ushering us into the life of communion with God and offering entry into his Church. It is possible to cross that threshold when the word of God is proclaimed and the heart allows itself to be shaped by transforming grace. To enter through that door is to set out on a journey that lasts a lifetime." Benedict XVI
