'Love cannot be silenced'

 |  NCR Today

A friend of mine showed me a musical piece written by Sr. Kathy Sherman with the Congregation of St. Joseph. It shares the story of women in religious life and the outpouring of support for them, and it is too moving not to share.

Her story was recently covered by The New York Times and can be found here.

Listen to these powerful words, and share this appropriate and timely message.

Love cannot be silenced. 
It never has. 
It never will. 
Let justice roll like a river from the oceans to the hills. 
Rise up, Sisters. Rise up. 
And stand with you your heads held high. 
We are faithful, loving and wise 
Dancing along side by side 
With a Gospel vision to lead us 
And Holy Fire in our eyes.
