Watch: There is No Rose of Such Virtue

Sting (yes…Sting!) performs “There is No Rose of Such Virtue”. A classical hymn that lauds the virtue and purity of the Blessed Virgin Mary. This is a powerful and moving performance in both its simplicity and its acoustic complexity. Simple, but not insignificant, much like our holy Mother. Maybe give this a listen while focusing on an image of the Blessed Virgin Mary and contemplate the greatness of God who created such a human mother for his Son. Enjoy!
