Gregorian Chant: The Eternal Song

 by Sr Fidelis    

“This is my beloved Son”

The Christmas Season came to a close yesterday, as we celebrated the Feast of the Baptism of Christ. In the text of this processional antiphon: The soldier baptizes the king; the servant, his Lord; John, the Savior.  The water of the Jordan was astounded; the dove bore witness. The father’s voice was heard: “This is my beloved Son.”

We now return to Tempus per Annum — Ordinary Time. Our hearts have been touched by the mystery that God’s beloved Son chose to dwell among us, and still offers us today the hope of redemption and transfiguration.

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.
