New CD Project: Mary, My Mother and Queen

fatimaMay 13, 2016–Feast of Our Lady of Fatima

Dear Friends,

After Mass this morning I was moved to go to our parish Perpetual Adoration Chapel with my daughter–something I haven’t made time for in too long.  As I prayed with the day’s scripture readings, I heard deep in the recesses of my heart, “It’s time.”

For a couple of years now I’ve been telling people that my next CD will be all about Mary, as a token of love and appreciation for all that she has done for me as a spiritual mother over the course of my life (and usually without thanks or recognition).  I just haven’t felt like the timing was right for me to begin the hard work of creating a new CD, at least not until today.

It’s time.

It makes sense that my instruction would come today on the Feast of Our Lady of Fatima, as next year at this time we will be celebrating the 100th anniversary of her first apparition in Fatima, Portugal, in which she gave urgent messages for our times.  Many have speculated on the significance of this centennial.  All I know is that I have been given a mandate, and I feel called to give the CD to Lighthouse Catholic Media to manufacture and sell at a bare bones price ($2-3/CD) should they choose do so.

Will you help me honor Our Lady of Fatima on her 100th anniversary?

For just $500, you can dedicate one of the songs listed below to someone special in your life, and you can include others in your sponsorship to split the cost.  Your dedication (up to 20 words) will appear in the liner notes of every CD we make, and I will send you five CD’s as soon as we’re done.  My goal is to have this CD fully funded in the next few weeks and to have it ready to go well before Christmas.  You may note that $500 is much less than we have asked for in the past, but this CD will be much simpler to make.  In fact, four of the songs are already recorded!

If you are interested in dedicating a particular song (listed below), please send an email to me ASAP (kitty@kittycleveland.com) with your top three choices. I will give out the dedications in the order in which I receive them.  If you don’t see a Marian hymn on the list that you want, please let me know.*  Finally, please pray that I can make a beautiful gift for Our Lady!  I can’t wait to share this with you when we’re done.

Thanks and blessings,

Ave Maria (Caccini)

Ave Maria (Arcadelt)

Ave Maria (Gregorian chant)

* The ones I’ve listed are all in the public domain.  To add songs that need to be licensed (e.g. Holy Is His Name; As I Kneel; Hail Mary, Gentle Woman), it would cost a good bit more and Lighthouse wouldn’t be able to do it, but we could make it happen for $1,000/song on my own Mary CD (I can still give the public domain songs to Lighthouse).  Please let me know if you’re interested.

  1. May God Bless you Kitty on your next venture. While I cannot contribute I will buy this CD and cherish it as I do all the previous works of Ms. Kitty Clevland. You are truly blessed.

  2. Hi Kitty, Karen Sheehy here. I love getting messages from the Lord in Adoration. He usually speaks with so few words but His remarks are full of Love, Wisdom and Concern! I hope you are getting through my book manuscript as this may help you understand my interest in sponsoring an Ave Maria on your upcoming CD. Which version did you sing at Mark Mallet’s praise and worship session? I would like that one dedicated to my son, Joseph and my own family of three that we may be a holy family. Let me know your thoughts and how to move forward! Karen

  3. This is wonderful, Kitty!

    I understand about receiving those “mandates”. God will surely bless this project, I have no doubt.

    Although, I am unable to support this project financially, I will CERTAINLY keep you, and this project, in prayer that the financial needs be met in a timely manner

    I cannot wait to hear the end result!

    Sincerely, in the Love of Christ,
    Donelle Crovetto
