When believers sing their prayer, chant their faith, and lyrically express their discipleship, our rituals have the potential to move beyond pious ceremonies and become a true and living embodiment of the “mystery of faith.” (from the Introduction)
We Are Not Alone is a collection of hymns, psalms, and songs that is ideal for private prayer as well as a variety of group settings such as retreats, Bible study groups, and adult or youth formation events. It is especially appropriate for formation experiences for choirs, cantors, ensembles, and other ministers of music. These reflections provide an invitation to deepen the celebration of our connection to God and to one another through the celebrations of the Eucharist and observations of the Hours. It is intended for the public prayer of, and worship by, a singing and participating community.
These prayers and reflections can be adapted and combined with the companion CD to enhance your experience as you listen and pray, and then “break open” the message and reflect on questions that encourage spiritual growth.
The companion music collection includes printed copies of the choral arrangements of the fifteen songs composing We Are Not Alone. All are also available separately from GIA Publications.
Let We Are Not Alone—the recording, the printed music, and this companion book—nurture you, both as members of a praying Church and in the faith that God never forgets or abandons us.
Indeed, we are not alone.
