Today we share a very simple video, no less meaningful in its contents for all its simplicity (appearances can be deceiving). A video like this, with its sweet melody, hides a rousing rallying call for those who persist in thinking that faith is already condemned to silence, and that it must stay at home, and be relegated to the private sphere.
If that is the case, then listening to none other than Elvis Presley singing openly to the Virgin Mary, and praying the Rosary, must be encouraging to anyone. We must be convinced that it’s possible to carry our faith and express it even in the most public of places!
We don’t need to hide the most radical parts – which are also the most beautiful parts – of the message, we don’t need to dilute it with ambiguous or neutral phrases, whether out of fear of those to whom we’re speaking, or because we have a false idea that the results won’t be so impressive or successful. Elvis shows us the complete opposite: why don’t we take the stage and proclaim our faith with a bit more bravery!
