Sacred and Remembered

In ancient Greek lore, the sparrow was sacred to Aphrodite, symbolizing a spiritual connection. According to tales from ancient Egypt, sparrows catch the souls of the newly dead and take them to the afterlife. In the Bible, a sparrow sighting means the deity cares for even the smallest of us. Under the direction of Mike Sanflippo, the St. Augustine Community Chorus performs “Not One Sparrow Is Forgotten,” and premiers “Mass” by Loren C. Fortna.
