PRAYING THE SEVEN SORROWS OF MARY
with Father Pablo Straub
Little Lamb Music has produced another winning CD with Praying the Seven Sorrows of Mary with St. Alphonsus Maria Liguori, led by Father Pablo Straub, C.S.s.R. Those who have ever heard the voice of this widely popular Redemptorist priest know the story. Fr. Straub., a favorite on EWTN, is a storyteller, “par excellence,” and he brings his great talent to this CD.
However, the major point of interest of Praying the Seven Sorrows of Mary with St. Alphonsus Maria Liguori is that all the music, lyrics, meditations, and text are by St. Alphonsus, taken from several of his written works. Fr. Straub’s deep,
passionate voice brings rich emotion to the words of the saint. A perfect backdrop of strings and melodic voices accompany the narration. Praying the Seven Sorrows of Mary with St. Alphonsus Maria Liguori starts with the song, “Aspirations to Maria.” The
instruments and voices create a holy, reverential atmosphere, perfect for contemplating the Seven Sorrows of Mary. Fr. Straub then offers unique “short stories” on each of these Seven Sorrows, and the listener is led through the prayers that
accompany each sorrow. Fr. Straub interjects the phrase, “Oh my Mother, enable my heart to share your sorrow for the death of your Son.” This beautiful CD will enable the listener to do just that – allowing one’s own heart to “accompany” Blessed Mother Mary through Her Seven Sorrows.
