Adoration| Posted February 18, 2013
I have been a huge fan of Matt Maher ever since my freshmen year at Oakland Catholic High School (Matt Maher is Catholic for those who are unaware). His music has become commonplace at our Masses and in our Religion classrooms but his greatest impact in my life was at a weekend retreat. We went into a chapel at the retreat center to have 3 hours (yes that is a 3)of Eucharistic Adoration. One of the teachers played music on his guitar during it. When he started to play Adoration by Matt Maher I sobbed my eyes out. I was so overcome by emotion it was amazing. Thanks Matt You Rock
