Music has great power. In this interview Fr. Mike and Lorraine Hess talk about what music can do for prayer. Lorraine is a Catholic musician who writes and sings her own music. She talks about her experience of Katrina in her home town of New Orleans. From this trauma, some of her best music was born. She then sings Jesus is the Way.
Lorraine talks about how the gospels come alive when she takes the stories and sets them to music. She also sings the old songs in a contemporary way. Music takes prayer to the next level.
Lorraine also works with youth. She sometimes uses popular songs with new words or uses songs such as “Lean on Me” and applies a spiritual application to them. The interview ends with Lorraine singing “Soul of Christ.”
