So, Acts Fans, here's a theme song I have written for the St Dominic Mens Acts Retreat to be held in December 2011. This is my third time as music director for a retreat for the Church of St. Dominic in Southington, CT.
The retreat theme is "Nothing is impossible with God", based on the scripture passage from the Gospel of Luke, chapter 26, verse 38, where Mary asked how it can be that she should expect a son, the Son of God at that, as she was a virgin, having known no man. And Gabriel responded that "for God, nothing is impossible."
This song looks at the biblical prophesies, Mary's encounter, and our own response to the things He has done in our lives.
Knowing that on the whole, men don't sing, I look forward to hearing the men put forth this song at the return mass on Sunday, as they consider what miracles they have seen on the retreat that weekend. I know one thing.....It will be miraculous!
