GREEN BAY, Wis., April 18, 2014 /Christian Newswire/ -- Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity offer an Easter Morning gift -- a free download of Matthew Hardy performing his song "One Thing I Ask." Available through April at the Franciscanized World Discernment page fscc-calledtobe.org.
The Minneapolis based Singer-Songwriter Hardy "wrote this song with friends at their house after dinner one night. We were just singing some songs we all knew, and I started improvising some lyrics with Psalms 27 & 45 in mind, and also the writings of the Apostle Paul."
"I think the song is about being present with what is in front of you at the time…. We are beholding something beautiful at all times, in my opinion.
"I have always been moved by the words of David. He reminds me of Mary sitting at the feet of Jesus, just 'being' with Him.…This is how I live, with the confidence that I am, truly in perfect peace, here, now, in this moment. Rejoice."
According to the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops commentary on the Bible, Psalm 27 expresses "boundless hope that God will bring rescue, and the psalmist longs for the presence of God in the Temple, protection from all enemies."
Established in 1869, the Roman Catholic Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity serve in Catholic Health Care, Education and Parish-Community Service in the Midwest, Central and Southwest United States.
