The sisters of Siervas thank the “More Than Good People”

J-P Mauro - published on 11/07/17

Siervas' music is a celebration of the joy of life.

The group Siervas is now made up of 11 religious sisters from Argentina, China, the Philippines, Chile, Venezuela, Ecuador, Peru, and Japan. They came to the community responding to God’s call to serve their brothers and sisters, especially those who suffer the most, those who are most fragile, the sick, the poor, and the needy.

Their song “Gente más que buena” is a celebration of the “more than good people” who stand up for those in need. From their second full-length album, Hoy Despierto, the lyrics read like an open letter thanking people for the good works they do:

To those people more than good I want to thank you, with your life today you sustain this world. I want to be one of them, of those people more than good, to build a fair and good world and so hope grows.

The sisters of Siervas are supremely joyful in their mission to spread peace and the Gospel with their music. Sister Kathleen, their pianist, about the group’s perspective of their work:

“For us the music is very important because it is a universal language and it’s a means, a very strong means, to communicate. We play and we sing because we want to trasmit to others the love of God.”
