Launch of a New Song ~ Nano Aflame!
The Feast of the Immaculate Conception of Mary on the 8th December marks the one year anniversay since the Convocation of the ninth Congregational Gathering of the Presentation Sisters (Union) in 2018 (CG2018). It will take place from 19 – 26 April in Cork, and from 29 April – 14 May 2018 in Dublin.
As part of the preparation toward the CG2018, Sr Miriam Martin, PBVM (Newfoundland and Labrador Unit) has composed an inspiring song entitled, ‘Nano Aflame!’ Also, Janet Leclair and many others have collaborated with Miriam in puting together a meditative video to go with the song which is based on the theme for the Congregational Gathering 2018: ‘Nano Aflame! Stoking our Passion … Becoming the Fire … Radiating Love’. Since the Convocation of the Congregational Gathering on 8th December last year, the meaning of the words of the theme have deeply resonated within the hearts of Presentation Sisters and Friends of Nano across the world and have stretched their vision to go where Nano’s Dream flourishes.
With much pondering what emerged is a song that traces Nano’s story and our stories and the call to follow where the Dream of God yet leads. In verse one we touch Nano’s beginnings and the greening wonder of God beckoning her in Ballygriffin. Verse two speaks of hearing the call to loving service. Verse three brings us to today and leads us to the Gathering and beyond. We journey with God’s Dream glimpsed in the heart and spirit of Nano. Together, let us take our place in the Dream.”
