Beauty inspires prayer.
We strive to serve God, to strengthen the faithful, foster unity in The Church, to support priests, seminarians, religious, musicians and families.
“Glorify the Lord with me! God gave me breath under water. My heartfelt love for Him gets magnified when I am in the pews and polyphony fills the air. Over more than a decade I have heard countless people from around the world confess chant and polyphony at Mass gives a heavenly breath to their soul! God has talented a great number of excellent musicians and singers to fill every local church with beauty. In this era polyphony and chant at Mass can be for everyone. We invite you to join us in moving the beauty giant out of slumber and to bring the experience of sacred music at Mass to the faithful everywhere. We believe beauty will invigorate the faith. “

“I’ve been to a lot of big Catholic youth gatherings, nationally and internationally, but I’ve never seen such a huge number of people like this, at World Youth Day, so attentive and reverent during Mass. The daily Mass at Mercy Center Tauron Arena Krakow was breathtakingly beautiful and reverent. I attribute that largely to the music.”

Please pray with us for beauty to surround Our Lord as a gift from us all, His children, as He does the work of salvation for every soul around the world! May God bless you always! We ask for the protection of the archangels St. Michael, St. Gabriel and St. Raphael on our every effort. Our mission became public on the Feast of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary, December 8th, 2015. May she purify our hearts and those of all our collaborators with the intercession also of her beloved husband The Pure St. Joseph. In Jesus Christ, Amen.
Beauty is mercy.
