Marilla paints a vivid picture In words and music of the extraordinary heights to which ordinary people are raised through doing God’s work.
And she demonstrates how great holiness is possible for us, if we do as they did and abandon ourselves to the will of God.
The holy season of Lent is a time of fasting, prayer and penance, which prepares us to celebrate the glorious resurrection of our Lord.
Let these beautiful sacred songs selected from Marilla’s albums help you to meditate on the passion, death and overwhelming love of our Lord Jesus.
In this phenomenal double album Marilla reminds us that the most important thing in our lives is our relationship with God.
She offers us insights into faith and gives us an understanding of God and His purpose and will for us. Featuring thirteen beautiful Biblical Songs from her albums, her wish is that we will be encouraged to make Bible reading a daily practice.
The combination of her unique voice with fine orchestral and guitar arrangements, makes this a very special album indeed and one to to treasure.
It can be used in personal moments of quiet reflection to bring us closer to Jesus, or equally in prayer group settings, where the gentle flowing Medleys will raise us to new heights of awareness of His presence in our midst.
And when used as a background during Eucharistic Adoration, the presence of Jesus will manifest itself in our hearts and bring us ever closer to Him.
Marilla’s beautiful new CD reminds us that although this devotion goes back to the Middle Ages, it has become better known, following the Vatican-approved Marian apparitions in Kibeho, Rwanda, in the 1980s.
In her many apparitions in Kibeho, Our Lady asked specifically that we should pray the Rosary of the Seven Sorrows, promising that through this, we would receive abundant graces.
Praying the Seven Sorrows reminds us of the key role played by Our Lady in our Redemption and of the suffering she endured along with her Son Jesus, to save us.
Marilla leads us in praying the Seven Sorrows and sings excerpts from some beautiful hymns to Our Lady, featured in her Albums. Click Here to Buy
These very beautiful Roasry Beads, were specially commissioned to use in conjunction with the Seven Sorrows CD and can be ordered with the CD, or separately as you wish.
