The Changing Season of Life

Marcio Cruz - published on 05/11/16


The Italian composer Antonio Vivaldi managed to convey through his notes the sensation that the passing of each season can provoke in us. The winter, if we listen carefully, is a more somber, harsher sequence. And in the spring, joy, strength, and liveliness bring the peace to life.

Have you thought about how our lives compare to the cycle of seasons? How many winters have you lived through? And how many abundant springs bringing us new life have we had to be thankful for?

In this song – Estações (“Seasons”) – Brazilian Catholic singer Marcio brings us a message of hope, stressing that with the love of God we can move forward, regardless of the situation we find ourselves in.

“The seasons changed, taking something with them, but your love remained,” says an excerpt of the song.

In which season is your soul? Are you passing through the season with or without the love of God? Listen and meditate.
