EP - MATT TALBOT (BORN TO BE SAINTS) is a song about Venerable Matt Talbot, the Irishman who was an alcoholic from the age of 12 to 28 and was sober for 41 years to his death in 1925. Matt had a devotion to Mother Mary and the instrumental, RESTING IN THE ARMS OF MARY is included for this reason. Also included are songs related to generational healing inspired by the book THE HEALING OF FAMILIES by Fr. Yosefu-B Ssemakula. Though it is widely recognized that addiction runs in families through a genetic component and by example (the environment) it is much less known or acknowledged that there is co-existing spiritual component that unless attended to is passed along through the generations. And even though each person has the ultimate responsibility to avoid addiction no matter their background, it is much harder for the person who has this generational/family component than the person who doesn’t. Simply put, a disordered attachment opens doors which need to be closed. These songs; CHOICES MADE, ONLY ONE, and GOD KNOWS broach this subject of generational sin and healing which is not specific to but includes addictions.
