Everything is Grace

“To preserve our cheerfulness amid sicknesses and troubles,

is a sign of a right and good spirit.”

Philip Neri

The Eucharist is “the source and summit of the Christian life.”

Music & Ministry

Hi my name is Dean. I have been involved in Christian music for around 15 years. Along the way I have gotten involved in and helped at Christian retreats, courses, concerts, prayer groups and circles at various churches and schools in various diocese in South Africa (and Italy, more recently). I have a passion for the Christian faith, the Catholic Church, liturgical music, the theology of the body, catechetics, philosophy and theology. I enjoy serving and I give talks, facilitate retreats and lead worship music where I can. I am currently based in Durban, South Africa but travel across the country fairly frequently.

Many years ago, and much hair ago, I wrote this song about the experience of loving God and being open to His plan for my life.

The Eucharist is "the source and summit of the Christian life."

The Eucharist is "the source and summit of the Christian life." "The other sacraments, and indeed all ecclesiastical ministries and works of the apostolate, are bound up with the Eucharist and are oriented toward it. For in the blessed Eucharist is contained the whole spiritual good of the Church, namely Christ himself, our Pasch." "The Eucharist is the efficacious sign and sublime cause of that communion in the divine life and that unity of the People of God by which the Church is kept in being. It is the culmination both of God's action sanctifying the world in Christ and of the worship men offer to Christ and through him to the Father in the Holy Spirit." Finally, by the Eucharistic celebration we already unite ourselves with the heavenly liturgy and anticipate eternal life, when God will be all in all. In brief, the Eucharist is the sum and summary of our faith: "Our way of thinking is attuned to the Eucharist, and the Eucharist in turn confirms our way of thinking."
