Hymns and spiritual songs communicate a particular spirituality and a particular theology. They can powerfully proclaim a gospel of love and liberation or they can narrow and distort the gospel message. They can invite us into intimacy with a God who loves us, or they can reinforce our fears and false beliefs. As a Missionary of the Sacred Heart, my desire is to live and promote a spirituality consistently based on God’s compassion, revealed especially in the humanity of Jesus. Through words and music, I desire to give expression to a spirituality that recognises the reality of the Divine in the daily joys and struggles of life, and in the desires of the human heart.
