Thomas Jude Shaheen is a new Catholic Christian recording artist that just released a 12-song CD titled “Don’t Stand Idly By,” a pro-life song and the CD’s title track. Don’t Stand Idly By is based on a reflection on Pope John Paul II’s Evangelium Vitae and Elie Wiesel’s reading of Leviticus 19:16 whereby the worst thing a person can do is to stand idly by while another is in danger or in need.
The CD includes a powerful prayer for healing, "May I Be Healed" and features familiar themes in a contemporary style sure to resonate with all ages. The entire album is in the spirit of the New Evangelization and is informed by Thomas Jude's studies at Sacred Heart Major Seminary in Detroit, where he is working on a Master's in Theology.
The album includes songs with special appeal to Catholics, however Christians of all denominations will appreciate Thomas Jude's penchant for preaching Jesus Christ, Risen from the dead. All songs are available for streaming online.
