SONGS FOR THE YEAR
OF THE BIBLE

 

“That the Word of the Lord may speed forward” (2 Th. 3:1). by Verônica Firmino, fsp
♪ Sheet music / Mp3 (google drive)


And the Word became Flesh (cf. Jn 1:14) and through the centuries has been proclaimed, sown, and spread throughout the world, in quick steps, in slow steps, with constancy and creativity. It is a word that has never tired of speeding forward and in reaching our day is transformed into poetry, art and music through Sr. Verônica Firmino.

That the Word of the Lord may speed forward (2 Th. 3:1) is the title of her song (made possible in different versions through collaborators). The refrain, once heard and repeated, makes us desire to "speed forward" to proclaim the Gospel with one’s life, in the style of Paul, constant in the midst of joy and pain. And again the various Pauline exhortations, collected and clothed in musical and poetic language, fill our hearts and we spontaneously begin to sing: "That the Word of the Lord may speed forward...", thus entering into the same dynamic as the Apostle, who elsewhere gives us his secret: "And I will most gladly spend and be spent for your sakes" (2 Co. 12:15). The Apostle does not tire and does not spare himself! And we too "speed forward" as we hasten to bring the Kingdom of God to all.

Perché la Parola corra (2Ts 3,1) di don Boguslaw Zeman, ssp
♪ Sheet music / Mp3 / Video (google drive)


L’inno composto da don Boguslaw Zeman per l’Anno Biblico di Famiglia Paolina racconta un vero incontro tra due realtà vive – la persona e la Parola –, un incontro costruito sul dialogo, quasi un sussurro, intessuto da delicatezza, accoglienza e intimità. Al libero avvicinarsi della persona risponde la Parola, lasciandosi incontrare. Uno si consegna all’altro e reciprocamente si rivelano. Cresce la familiarità e la sete di frequentazione vicendevole; viene ravvivata la profezia, confermata la passione per l’umanità e si apre la finestra sul mondo. L’esperienza diventa seme di un profondo desiderio: impegnarsi, con tutte le forze «Perché la Parola corra! Parola che é Vita, Luce, Grazia, Amore, Pace!».

Sono questi alcuni pensieri e sentimenti che emergono dall’ascolto dell’inno, composto e interpretato da don Boguslaw con la semplicità e la trasparenza dei piccoli.
