Gregorian Chant: The Eternal Song

By Sr. Fidelis

Pastor Bonus

In the Communion for the 4th week of Easter, Jesus says, “I am the good shepherd, and I know my sheep and mine know me.”  (John 10:14).

In a simple two and a half line melody, the joy and safety of being known is beautifully portrayed.  Last week he was known in the breaking of the bread.  This week we are made even more aware of his watchcare over each one of us in an intimate, personal way.

Ego sum pastor bonus et cognosco oves meas, et cognoscunt me meae.

About Sr. Fidelis

I am 46 years old, and have been a Sister at the Community of Jesus for 26 years. Having grown up here, I have been singing Gregorian chant since I was 10! I was very blessed to study Gregorian chant with Dr. Mary Berry in Cambridge, England and here at home. Recently, I have been able to do some radio and tv interviews, sharing about the blessings of Gregorian chant. I love leading chant workshops, and have been able to do that in the US and abroad.
