In the words of the composer, “Inspired by the wisdom of Pope Francis, who offers, ‘Show by your life that it is worth giving your time and talents in order to attain high ideals, that it is worth recognizing the dignity of each human person, and it is worth taking risks for Christ and his Gospel,’ this piece tries to explore every facet of what it means to let your life speak what you truly believe.” Lori True’s experiences working with the students of St. Catherine University, strong women whose actions speak as loudly as their cries for justice, inspired the composition of “Show by Your Life.” The verses can be sung by a cantor, but the community can learn and pray them to God and to one another, keeping one another accountable to the mission of the gospel.
