Music and the Gospel: “Girl on Fire,” Alicia Keys

St. Ignatius of Loyola, whom we read about last week, told those who trained with him, “Go forth and set the world on fire.” By this he meant: share your gifts and passions in an unrelenting, larger-than-life way. Let your gifts spark life within you and ignite the light in others, helping our world to burn a bit brighter each day.

Key Lines: “Oh, she got both feet on the ground / And she’s burning it down / Oh, she got her head in the clouds / And she’s not backing down”

Questions: Without talking, stand up and put your body into a position that expresses what it feels like when you are holding something in or keeping a secret. Now move to a position that expresses what it feels like when you are giving it your all. Turn to the person next to you and tell them about a moment that made you feel like you were “burning it down” or “on top of the world.”
