Danielle Rose Provides Inspiration CD to young Adults and Men Seeking Life in Christ
Cullman, Alabama (October 26, 2009) - World Library Publications (www.wlpmusic.com), the music and liturgy division of J.S. Paluch Company and the Paluch Family Foundation, has teamed with contemporary Catholic musical artist Danielle Rose in the release of a new CD titled Pursue Me, which Rose hopes will gift listeners with inspiration to follow God’s call in their chosen vocation.
Before leaving her career as a musical missionary and following God’s call to enter religious life in a Franciscan charismatic religious community, The Disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ, Danielle (now Sister Rose Therese) wanted to demonstrate her obvious love of God by creating reflective and meditative lyrics, both spiritually comforting and challenging, especially for those discerning about the priesthood or a religious vocation.
“I recorded Pursue Me with the great hope that God will be glorified by using these songs to encourage others who are also discerning a vocation to religious life,” Danielle said. This album is a musical testimony of the grace that transformed her heart to respond to Christ’s call and is a wonderful gift to the Church which is “destined to bring forth a harvest of holiness.”
Like her past CD’s, which unfold with hidden lyrical and musical subtleties and beauty, Danielle’s insight, prayerful discernment, and vibrant joy and love are reflected in the newest project and can be truly appreciated only by listening. Her music has an intimate quality that calls each person to the heart of God – to rest in the joy and peace that is present in that full awareness. With appreciative reviews, this CD is a masterpiece with several real gems and a wide mix of styles, including a unique blend of southern gospel and bluegrass styles. In particular, the songs feature Danielle’s pure delicate voice, often likened to Alison Krause. Stand out songs include: ‘Pursue Me’, ‘Abraham’s Offering’, and ‘Gates of Heaven’.
Her popularity began with the release of ‘God Is’ from her debut album ‘Defining Beauty’, which continues as a top selling album, followed by her 2-CD set titled ‘Mysteries’, musical reflections on scripture based on the mysteries of the rosary, and ‘I Thirst’, musical reflections on the life of Mother Teresa. Danielle has touched and represents the hearts of the ‘JP II’ generation, who heard him proclaim over and over again, “Be Not Afraid (to follow Christ)” as well as today’s religious young people. These songs will inspire young adults discerning God’s call in their lives. It is hoped that her consoling voice and lyrics will encourage religious listeners to respond with a deeper ‘YES’ to God’s will so that they can co-create their vocation with God and for the good of all the Church.
Listen to Danielle’s testimony as contained in the booklet which accompanies the new CD. “In His great mercy, Jesus has pursued you relentlessly from the foundation of the world. What is your response? Be willing to sacrifice all that you are and all that you have for the love of him who gave his life for love of you. Allow God to reveal who you truly are, and trust in his loving plans to give you a future full of hope. As you take up your cross and follow in his footsteps, he will be with you and will sustain you every step of the way.”
