Year of Youth 2018

These Nuns Rock... Literally

Last edited 8th February 2017

It’s not what you would typically expect, but this unique group of nuns found a way to use their gifts to evangelize through music. When they realized that so many of them were musically talented, they decided to form their own band. And not just any band… a rock band.

Last year the “Siervas” (The Servants) became an internet sensation and were invited to perform when Pope Francis came to visit Mexico. The nuns are based out of Peru, but the band is made up of members from all over the world.

“People forget that nuns were normal people!” Sr. Monica reminds us in the video. This is precisely why it is so important to share stories like this one. We often forget that a call to the religious life does not mean completely abandoning your past, your talents, or your passions. God will help you find a way to use your gifts to bring Him glory when you release yourself to Him and submit to His plans.

Listen to their song 'Hoy Despiertos' (meaning 'I Awake Today') here (or by clicking the image above).

As of now, they only have music in Spanish, but who knows what the future may bring!

Discussion Questions

1.What are your gifts? How do you use your talent for God?

2. How do stories such as this one help promote and encourage vocations?

3. Is there someone you know who uses a unique talent for God? How does that bring others to know Christ?

Love these sisters and their music-
