Playlists for Prayer

God has bestowed upon His people the gift of song. ... As St. Augustine says, 'Singing is for the one who loves.' Music is therefore a sign of God?s love for us and of our love for Him. In this sense, it is very personal. But unless music sounds, it is not music, and whenever it sounds, it is accessible to others. By its very nature, song has both an individual and a communal dimension. Thus, it is no wonder that singing ... expresses so well the sacramental presence of God to his people.
—Sing to the Lord, §1-2
