Uplifting YouTube video expresses solidarity with Catholic sisters

Maybe you have seen and listened to “Love Cannot Be Silenced,” which is making the rounds in cyberspace. But if you haven’t, take this opportunity. You are in for a treat. It's dubbed "a peoples'" response to recent Vatican actions against our women religious

The five minute video features photos from prayer services, vigils, demonstrations, masses, and other gatherings in support of our women religious during the past two months.

This YouTube video, the creative work of a few Sisters of Saint Joseph, reflects the joy and spirit of our women religious as well as the solidarity of so many who are standing up with the women in their hours of abuse and torment at the hands of some Vatican officials.

As the YouTube video explains "Love Cannot Be Silenced" was written and composed by Sister of Saint Joseph Sister Kathy Sherman with artwork by Sister of Saint Joseph Mary Southard. The production was compiled by Sister of Saint Joseph Alison McCrary.

Here are the lyrics, in case you are moved to sing along!

Love cannot be silenced.
It never has.
It never will.
Let justice roll like a river from the oceans to the hills.
Rise up Sisters. Rise up.
And stand with you your heads held high.
We are faithful, loving, and wise.
Dancing along side by side.
With a Gospel vision to lead us.
And Holy Fire in our eyes.
