13. Sacred Music | 25 Gifts of the Church
Johann Sebastian Bach once said, “I play the notes as they are written, but it is God who makes the music.”
Sacred music can enrich our prayer life by stirring up wonder within us and giving us words to say when we can't find our own. Sacred songs and chants express the solemnity of the Mass and help bring the truth of the Catholic liturgy to life. If you want to take a deep dive into the history of Catholic liturgical music, check out our series On A Sacred Note. It features interviews with composers and musicians as well as incredible performances.
