Top Catholic Songs Is Great for Catholic Artists (Exposure, Connections, Promotion)

The Top Catholic Songs community has been very encouraging to me.  There's not really a place for Catholic-specific artists like my band anywhere but here.  Our single,

Praise to the New Eve
b/w Against My Church the Gates of Hell Will Not Prevail

is officially out today. Though those who follow this site may have already heard and/or downloaded it.  

And I must mention our new-to-TCS member Lee O'Day programs a Catholic radio station near Manhattan, Kansas.  We (my band) asked (maybe begged?) him for an add, and he is running Praise to the Eve on his Saturday show of contemporary Catholic music tomorrow.  I also heard at least one other TCS artist when I tuned in last week.  His show is called "Saturday Knight Sword Play" and you can tune in through their web site: The Sword of St. George - the show runs 9 pm to midnight USA Central Daylight Time (Chicago Time Zone) Saturdays.  Great stuff! 

Our current musical project is to take Communist propaganda songs and transform them into Catholic anthems.  The below link connects you to our music on your choice of several platforms, including the free MP3 downloads page back here on TCS:

Motivational Catholic Songs from Captain Hogcurl's Dacha Porch

A Prayer to the Most Holy Trinity

When the Bishop of Bridgetown was appointed Archbishop of Port of Spain there was a desire to give him a gift of prayer.  That desire inspired this prayer and song...Most Holy Trinity.  That was back in has taken us this long to be able to record and release the prayer publicly.  We hope that it will be part of your prayer on Trinity Sunday. 

Prayer to the Most Holy Trinity
Father, into Your hands, I commend my spirit, I surrender my heart,
I relinquish my will
And Father, I abandon myself, I come, to be sculpted,
let Your will be done in me
Father, I entrust you with my doubts, I cast all my cares,
You are my refuge and strength

Most Holy Trinity, Father, Son and Holy Spirit,
Praise, glory and honour, our hope, our salvation, blessed Trinity

Jesus, Your body fills my hungry soul, Your blood quenches my inner thirst
You’ve lived to die for all my sins
Jesus, have mercy on my transgressions, accept my tears of repentance
Renew my strength to bear my cross
And Jesus, Lamb of God, You are my Shepherd, with You no evil do I fear
Blest be the power of Your name

Most Holy Trinity, Father, Son and Holy Spirit
Praise and glory and honour, our hope, our salvation, blessed Trinity

Holy Spirit, I invite your presence here, I welcome all your gifts
I pledge to use them all in service
Holy Spirit, bring me wisdom and enlight’nment, anoint my lips to speak Your word
Open my eyes to seek Your truth
And Holy Spirit, dwell in me, Kindle Your flame in my heart, fill me with love and compassion
Breathe new life in me


Prayer and music composed and recorded by Color Music Ministry 

Breathe on me- An upbeat prayer to the Holy Spirit

Color Music Ministry released  2 new songs for celebrating the recent feast of Pentecost..., the first is Prayer to the Holy Spirit...this is the second, in contrast to the first one which is meant for quiet and meditative worship, this one is meant for praise and worship, and some dancing with the Holy Spirit.

Breathe on me Holy Spirit is also available on our Contemplative Worship Podcast and via SoundCloud


Prayer to the Holy Spirit by St Augustine set to music

One of the members of Color music ministry has composed music for the Prayer to the Holy Spirit.  The recording is a peaceful and meditative version of this prayer in song. 

Prayer to the Holy Spirit

Breathe in me O Holy Spirit, that my thoughts may all be holy.
Act in me O Holy Spirit, that my work, too, may be holy.
Draw my heart O Holy Spirit, that I love but what is holy.
Strengthen me O Holy Spirit, to defend all that is holy.
Guard me, then, O Holy Spirit, that I always may be holy.
The music is also available on our Contemplative Worship podcast which can be found on all podcast providers.

Prayer to Jesus (St John Vianney's prayer set to music)

Some years ago someone asked if I could set St John Vianney's Prayer to Jesus to music.  I had never seen this prayer before but once I did it resonated immediately.  What an absolutely beautiful love song to Jesus!  Color Music Minstry recorded and recently released the song online via our Contemplative Worship Podcast, SoundCloud and YouTube and it will soon be available for streaming on all major platforms.

St John Vianney’s Prayer to Jesus
"I love You, O my God, My only desire
is to love You until the last breath of my life.
I love You, O my infinitely lovable God,
and I would rather die loving You,
than live without loving You.

I love You, Lord
and the only grace
I ask is to love You eternally.
My God, if my tongue can't say
in every moment that I love You,
I want my heart to repeat it
to You as often as I draw breath."

Your Love Will Keep Me Strong

Christ is risen!!!
This is my new song, I co-wrote it with my friends Ann Ammar and Marianne Eichhorn.
I played all the instruments and sung and produced everything. The video shows original footages of the Sea of Galilee and surroundings

The original title of the song was "Seasons of life" and then we opted for the other one...It's about the seasons of life and how through the different moments the Lord is with us and leads everything to its fullfillment.

If you wish to download the HD version for free or listen to the Spotify version you find the links at my blog:

I wish you Happy Easter with the words of the Byzantine Rite. This is something that belongs also to us, since we are brothers and there are also Catholic Oriental Churches that pray with this rite:

"It is the day of Resurrection; let us be radiant for the festival, and let us embrace one another. Let us say, O brethren, even to those that hate us: Let us forgive all things on the Resurrection; and thus let us cry: Christ is risen from the dead, by death He has trampled down death, and on those in the tombs He has bestowed life."
