"For those of us who are part of the Voice of the Desert, so priests and also the laity, it's an honor to celebrate this anniversary, especially because she visited our diocese. For three months, she was the prioress of the Carmelite convent.” 

The lyrics of one of the songs translates to Determined Determination. It's based on a text authored by the Saint, which deals with making the right decisions. 

In total, they have three albums. Last year the group celebrated its 10th anniversary. Their dream is for their music to hit an international level.
