“So, we, too, are lovers of St. Thomas Aquinas,” Father Peter Gautsch, one of the band’s founding members, recently told the National Catholic Register, “and given her sort of Southern sensibilities, [and] the Southern character of some of our music, being from the bluegrass country tradition … it seemed a perfect name for our group.”

The band’s third album, “Holy Ghost Power,” came out in July. The title track captures the humor and evangelistic themes the friars’ fans love so much. A sample verse:

You got to tear down the wall and read Saint Paul

Burn like fire after the fall

More in US

You got to change things up if you’ve heard the word

You’ve got to die inside and serve the bird

“It was such a joy to hear them be able to share the fruits of their contemplation with everyone who’s ready to receive it,” Dominican Sister Josemaria Pence told CNA after the band’s six-song set.

“They’ve given their life to the Lord and it’s a joyful life,” she said. “So it’s wonderful to see the joy that they can share with other people.”
