Many thanks to Keith Jones for setting the words of Pope Saint John Paul II to music and to Fr Simon Robinson for commissioning him.

Keith was a cathedral chorister, choral scholar of St. John’s College Cambridge and viola player in the National Youth Orchestra. He was Head of English at the West Somerset School, conductor of the MInehead and District Choral Society, founder of the Alcombe Singers and organist and choirmaster of St. Michael the Archangel Alcombe.

Members of the Sodality may wish to use this anthem after Compline and/or before the versicle and response which precede the Sodality Prayer in the Manual and may follow the daily reading of the Manual or the section from the High Priestly prayer of Jesus.
