Sing a new song unto the Lord! This invitation is repeated again and again in the Psalms. Mary sang her magnificat. What is my song? Am I singing it? Each one of us is invited to sing a new song, a new Magnificat, every day of our lives. Each of us is a new creation, a facet of the glory of God, His presence made visible. Each of us has his own unique way of responding in gratitude to this precious, priceless gift of God which is our life and His life in us. It is told of a wonderful moment in the life of Fr. Solanus Casey (soon to be beatified) that late one night he was discovered playing his violin before the Blessed Sacrament. And the melody he was playing was O Sweet Mystery of Life, at Last I’ve Found You What is the song of my life, the inner music of my being? What is the background music which softly accompanies me throughout my day? How do I find my voice? I am not a single note, a solitary sound or a lonely chord; my life is a symphony of praise to God that rivals the music of the spheres. No one else can sing my song. And what a chorus we make when each one of our life songs is blended into and harmonized with all the others. In his inimitable style, Father Farrell helps us to tune in on the melody of our lives through silent listening and Eucharist contemplation.
