Even though we live in a sound bite world, the topic of the resurrection is not a sound bite issue. "Ave Maria" is a song by American R&B recording artist Beyoncé Knowles from her third studio album I Am... Amanda Ghost, Ian Dench and Makeba Riddick wrote the song in collaboration with its producers Knowles and production duo Stargate. My season in life right now, with many small and school-aged children, does not allow much parish participation outside Mass and confession.The whole parish, plus the K-12 Donahue Academy, do a lot to raise money or collect items for the poor (especially in the neighboring town of Immokalee), or to deliver to expectant mothers in Immokalee. The parish handles all the normal parish activities as well, like altar server training, youth choir, a rosary group, RCIA, and first communion prep, which my daughter is in right now.
I wrote about the small town of Ave Maria, Florida last month here at Catholic Stand, but I was still curious about a lot of things I couldn’t find online. Many of the women in the town just did a 33 day consecration to Mary.
As stated by Ghost, "Ave Maria" was inspired by Knowles and her own respective marriages.
The song is a re-write of Franz Schubert's "Ave Maria".
