Music Resources - Emmanuel 2016 and more

The repertoire selected for Emmanuel 2016 is yet again a great source of inspiration.

Music adds such a fabulous dimension to prayer and the R.E. classroom and so I hope you will find these Emmanuel 2016 Resources useful; they could be explored even if your students/school will not be with us for the performances (March 1 - 3) in the Helix.

If you like these hymns and are interested in getting involved for this year, please be assured it's not too late; just get in touch! 

I also came across this lovely music video during the week: Just be Held by Casting Crowns. This is the same band who created the song, Broken Together, which I have shared previously.

Care for Our Common Home; Great in the Small and Laudato Si'

Igniter Media have created this beautiful video: Great in the Small which holds such resonance with Pope Francis' Encyclical Laudato Si' and the Day for Life 2015 on October 4.

The following resources have been added to the website to support: Laudato Si' - Teaching about the Encyclical in the Classroom.

Pope Francis' Tour of the U.S.

Time offers this link regarding Pope Francis' address to Congress. Pope Francis mentions Thomas Merton as part of his speech, see this Huffington Post Link: The story of Thomas Merton, who the Pope held up as a model of Peace

Our Sunday Visitor on Twitter shares his plans for today here and you can scroll down on Time's webpage for an overview of his visit.

Christian Today shares a great photo from his U.S. visit with this article: Pope Francis: I am a Sinner, but God's Love Saved Me
