She got it!

img_4692

My wife, Patti, finally got a Music Director job! She told me to please express her heartfelt gratitude for the prayers and support she received during the time she searched for work. May God reward you for your goodness.

She will begin May 1st at St. Philip Neri parish in Metairie. He’s the patron saint of laughter, so we are grateful also for that temperament alignment. They had a wonderful and faithful music director for many years, but, in all of my objectivity (and Patti would not appreciate this praise), I can say that St. Philip is about to discover a new charism awakening in their midst.

St. Augustine captured her unique charism well in a phrase, Cantare amantis est, “singing is for lovers.” That’s Patti’s gift, she sings out of her love for God. I mentioned before on this blog that a famous jazz and blues singer in Florida, who converted to Catholicism, said to Patti one day after Mass: “Every time you sing the Lamb of God, I’m converted all over again.”

I’ll leave you with a recording I made of her rehearsing a Good Friday song, so you can hear that same gift:
