Welcome to My Music Ministry

For many years, I, John, had considered myself to be a fairly decent songwriter. I’d write for family, friends, for fun, and for my own consolation. That all changed overnight, in 1999, when my dear friend, Doral Allen, suggested, “Why don’t you write something in Latin, perhaps a performance piece?” I took her seriously, and I began to compose what would eventually become A Mass for Peace in the Third Millennium! My life and my expectations were forever impacted as I felt a profound inspiration that I believe was the grace of the Holy Spirit!

I thank God for the gifts, talents, and mentors He has given to me. I am grateful and humbled that my music has touched so many hearts and souls.

Hopefully, the Angelus Music website will be your virtual “online retreat”, or a “sanctuary” from the chaos that surrounds us day after day. Much of the Music is peaceful and prayerful, some are entertaining (even funny). The prayerful videos invite you to contemplate a number of things that are focused on Christ.

Other pages, Demo Videos, Off The Record, Testimonials, and Blogs have something to offer, as well. If you like what you see, please SUBSCRIBE and tell your family and friends!

For a richer experience, watch Full Screen with Ear Buds or Headphones.

“Keeping Christ at the Center of Our Music

Life Goes On

We all have times of sorrow in our lives.  Losing a loved one is the saddest of them all.  Somehow, we get the grace to accept our loss.  With that grace comes the hope that life goes on, not only for the one who is hurting, but also for the one who has moved on.  I wrote this song for my dearest friend when she lost her mother.  May it help you find peace, as well.


From A Mass for Peace in the Third Millennium.  This is a prayer that is raised up to the Lord at every Mass.  We ask God for forgiveness and mercy.  We are asking, literally, for DIVINE MERCY.

The Shores of Galilee

One of these days, I hope to get to The Holy Land.  To walk in the footsteps of Our Lord would be a dream come true – an answered prayer. 

Wherever we are, we can always choose to walk with Christ.  Jesus said, “You did not choose Me, I have chosen you.” So, follow Him!
