Rock priests launch new song about God's presence in the pandemic


With this new music video, the rock band “La Voz del Desierto” invites faithful to trust God in the midst of the pandemic.

"It is a good time to open our hearts, to realize that God wants to fill all those voids we have inside, to fulfill them in a certain way that would be impossible without Him."

Guitars, electric bass, piano and even drums join the group's voices. The band started more than fifteen years ago in Madrid, with a very specific message.

“It is to evangelize, feeling called to announce the One who saves. We do not save anyone, we proclaim Jesus. Jesus Christ is the only One who can save us, who can fill our hearts with peace and joy.”

Each band member, also known as the "rock priests," recorded the song in lockdown, without leaving their home. During the pandemic, they are looking for ways to help, like through their social networks.

“We have an interview, concert, prayer conducted by Dani, our singer usually interviews a well-known a singer on social networks. He asks how they are living the pandemic and they play a little of music, sing and share experiences and how to live this pandemic in God's light.”

They also give the possibility of participating in Mass, the rosary and in the exposition of the Blessed Sacrament. It's an experience that has produced great fruit.

“The other day as I almost hit play to start live-streaming the Mass in my parish, a woman approached me with a mask on and maintaining social distancing. I hadn't seen her during this time of the pandemic and she says to me, 'Thank you Father, for connecting with me every day and praying the Holy Rosary. Spiritual communion, while we could not approach the sacraments, was a reason for hope for me.”

They have had to cancel their concerts in Spain later this year and their August tour of the United States. However, they are preparing to do a large concert online very soon.
