Church, State and Election Year

 July 2016 Legionnaire Article

 by Fr. Bob Humacher

"We need to participate for the common good. Sometimes we hear: a good Catholic is not interested in politics. This is not true: good Catholics immerse themselves in politics by offering the best of themselves so that the leader can govern."
  Pope Francis, Sept. 2013.

            We all know that our country is in the throes of unprecedented political upheaval.  Many people are constantly asking me and other religious leaders what we Catholics are supposed to do in the midst of such turmoil.  My intention with this article is to offer you some very concrete assistance so we, as Catholics of the United States, can be both responsible citizens and followers of Jesus in the Catholic tradition when Election Day comes this November.

The Nature Suite

New music by Robert M. Hutmacher, ofm

with Orchestra da Camera di Perugia


The Nature Suite’s sixteen movements are uplifting, joyful, tender and rooted in the realities of natural beauty all around us.  My years as a Franciscan have given me a deep sensitivity to human nature and to the splendors of life in its fullness.  I am grateful that I am a musician and have such a splendid manner to express the richness of life as I perceive it.

This collection has been a joy to produce with my friends, Orchestra da Camera di Perugia.   Each movement captures one place or element or creature in a particular style.  My background as a child of the Midwest U.S is apparent in the sounds captured in The Nature Suite. I believe this collection came from personal creativity and divine inspiration.  Without words the listener can experience what I have in the marvels of creation
