Thought on Monday - November - 23/11/2020

'To stop the flow of music would be like the stopping of time itself, incredible and inconceivable.' ~Aaron Copland

Today (Nov 22nd) is the feast of St.Cecilia. She is the patroness of music and musicians. Because of the Covid 19 pandemic it has been an extremely tough year for musicians. Everyone and everything has been impacted but especially music.

We so often take music for granted and yet it is the pulse and heartbeat of life. Music is there for every occasion. It can uplift and it can calm and relax. It can unite and break down barriers. It has been said that music and silence combine strongly because music is done with silence and silence is full of music.

We live in a noisy world with little room for quiet time and silence. Quiet relaxing music can lead us to a much quieter place where we can often encounter the gentle quiet presence of God. Today we thank God and Cecilia for the great gift of music. As the old saying puts it so well: "When words fail, music speaks."
