Augustine said: "When you love with love of God, do not say `God is in my heart; rather, you should say `I am in the heart of God."
There is nothing in the world that speaks more eloquently of the infinite, unconditional love of God than the covenant love of marriage. This sacrament, more than any other, offers us a tangible and visible image of the everlasting love promised to us through the prophet Jeremiah:
"I have loved you with an everlasting love." (Jer 31: 3)
Traveling throughout the country, I have been inspired again and again by the love witnessed between husband and wife. May these songs clearly mirror that love; through them, may we come to know more vividly the heart of our God
This recording is dedicated most especially to Angelo and Mary Rita Ambrosetti, my Dad and Mom, who in their more than fifty years of marriage have taught me the meaning of covenant love.

Vince Ambrosetti began working in pastoral ministry at the young age of seven, and has worked with parishes ranging from 100 families to parishes serving more than 5,000 households. He completed his studies in Systematic Theology at the University of Notre Dame, South Bend, Indiana. In addition to his graduate studies in Theology, Scripture, Sacrament and Pastoral Ministry, VinceÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s undergraduate disciplines include Public Speaking/English Literature and Music Composition. He is a Secular Franciscan, professed in 1971. On October 4, 1977, Vince founded International Liturgy Publications, the oldest free-standing non-profit publisher of sacred music for the Catholic church. To support the new and growing ILP, Vince Ambrosetti gained invaluable experience as the National Director of Training and Development for Merrill Lynch in its Diversified Financial Services Group, and as the founder and president of American Fidelity Mortgage Corporation. Although he ceased involvement in business endeavors in 1990 to focus solely on parish missions and publishing for the Catholic church, his business insights are a priceless addition to his interactions with pastors nationwide. Named Catholic Artist of the Year in December 2001, Vince has been honored with seven other Unity awards for his music, as well as three Grammy Awards. Among his many extraordinary experiences, he sang his song Ã¢â‚¬Å“SanctuaryÃ¢â‚¬Â during Communion at Mother TeresaÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s funeral in Calcutta, India, and has composed, recorded and Ã¢â‚¬â€ by invitation of the Vatican Ã¢â‚¬â€ performed for Pope John Paul II, the first English Mass Setting ever sung at St. PeterÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Basilica in Rome. His music has been placed in the Vatican archives alongside the works of Vivaldi, Puccini, Verdi and Corelli.
