Taste and See the Goodness of the Beloved!
Be filled with the Spirit, addressing one another in psalms, and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and playing to the Beloved in your hearts, giving thanks always and for everything in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ to God the Father!
St. Paul’s Letter to the Ephesians 5:5
Yes! Sing psalms, and hymns and spiritual songs. Don’t worry if you are perfect. Come to Jesus in your pajamas. It is those areas of your prayer life that are the most difficult or the greatest bloopers that tend to be the most intimate with our God. I often take my saxophone and play my heart out in my sacred space. Often I make mistakes and my notes are sour. When that happens, I play some more. I am fascinated in the process of learning and living.
Sing psalms! Play to the Beloved with all your hearts, giving thanks always and for everything in the name of our Beloved Jesus Christ. He has given us his Body to eat and his Blood to drink. What more do you need? I need nothing but Eucharist. Sing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs!
I took these pictures yesterday as I was praying and preparing to sing my homily at Mass. God can use me like an instrument of peace and love…even when I am not perfect yet! Sing Psalms!
Love, joy, peace,
