Soul Saturday/My Favorite Marian Song

I love all the Marian songs. I’m not sure I have a specific one that is my favorite, anything that venerates her is lovely to my ears. That being said, I have noticed that at our parish Marian songs are usually sung on her feast days only. I am not sure if that is “standard” so to speak but, I think I remember when I was in Catholic grade school they were sung more often. I think it is a shame they are not sung more! I am delighted when I hear them! I have been trying a little trick for a over a year now and I noticed when I have a song in my head that’s catchy but I don’t want to hear it or maybe it’s a popular song that may not be appropriate, I start singing Immaculate Mary. Once I do that, the song that is stuck in my head will then go away! I also do that when visiting a Marian shrine, or during other occasions. Sometimes it just pops into my head and I love it! It’s a lovely prayer to our dear Mother!

Which Marian song is your favorite and why?

Soul Saturday/Gabriel's Message by Matt Maher

Hi Friends, Happy Saturday! I am praying for your Advent right now.

Matt Maher gave me chills on this song, especially when the little kids voices come in. What a gift Matt is to our faith journey.

God bless you all as we grip hands and continue to walk Under Bethlehem's Star together.
