Saint Thomas More Adult Choir

Saint Thomas More Adult Choir singing “If You Want” – a choral arrangement by Craig Carnahan, commissioned by Michael Sarafolean for the Community of Saint Thomas More in memory of his wife, Mary Ellen, and first performed during the 4:30pm Christmas Vigil Mass on December 24, 2010. Its words express the mystery that is our journey with Mary as members of God’s family united in creative collaboration with the Divine. The arrangement is based on a poem by Saint John of the Cross, which you can read below.


“If You Want”
(By Saint John of the Cross 1542-1591)

If
You Want,
the Virgin will come walking down the road
pregnant with the holy,
and say,

“I need shelter for the night, please take me inside your heart,
my time is so close.”

Then, under the roof of your soul, you will witness the sublime intimacy,
the divine, the Christ
taking birth
forever,

as she grasps your hand for help, for each of us
is the midwife of God, each of us.

Yet there, under the dome of your being does creation
come into existence eternally, through your womb, dear pilgrim –
the sacred womb in your soul,

as God grasps our arms for help; for each of us is
God’s beloved servant
never far.

If you want, the Virgin will come walking
down the street pregnant
with Light and sing . . .

 

From “Love Poems from God: Twelve Sacred Voices from the East and West”
Translation by Daniel Ladinsky, Penguin Compass.

Choral Setting by Craig Carnahan

Commissioned by Michael Sarafolean
for the Community of Saint Thomas More
in celebration of the life of Mary Ellen Sarafolean,
a woman of boundless faith and hope,
and God’s beloved servant.
Gone from our midst but never far.
