My God and My All
by Rufino Zaragoza, OFM

Unite your multicultural community with this trilingual collection of English, Spanish and Vietnamese songs.
A peaceful and contemplative collection, My God and My All feature 10 songs in a mix of English-only and various combinations of English, Spanish and Vietnamese. With compositions spanning four decades, Franciscan Brother Rufino Zaragoza collaborated with Vietnamese and Spanish-speaking composers to translate and compile a collection of songs for use in multicultural celebrations throughout the liturgical year — including weddings, funerals and Holy Week.

Featuring three distinct languages, this collection invites faith-filled members of the congregation to unite in song regardless of linguistic obstacles. And with many well-known tunes, — “Radiant Light Divine,” “C?u Cho Cha M? 2/Prayer for Parents 2” and “My God and My All” — communities of faith will instantly recognize and enjoy the music together.

Featured Songs:
“C?u Cho Cha M? 2/Prayer for Parents 2”
With an English translation from Rufino, this song comes from the second part in a series of ten “Prayers for Parents” that Phanxicô composed throughout the 1980s for children’s Mass in Saigon, given the long tradition of ancestor veneration. Written in Western tonal style with a slight touch of Vietnamese styling, it is most suitable for a children’s or teenagers’ choral ensemble for First Communion and Confirmation. Adults may also use this song for weddings, funerals, Feast of the Holy Family and the Lunar New Year.

“Living Water”
This piece, intended for use during the Sprinkling Rite, was composed to meet the need of parishes for music that welcomes the Vietnamese and Filipino communities. It features a quadrilingual refrain and an alternate trilingual refrain that includes only one phrase in Vietnamese. The Filipino and Vietnamese verses have melodies that accommodate the tonality of their native language and differ from the English and Spanish verses.

“My God and My All/Mi Dios y Mi Todo/Chúa Là Gia Nghi?p Con”
This is the fifth edition of the octavo “My God and My All.” First released in 1990, followed by Spanish and Vietnamese additions in 1998 and 2000 respectively, this intercultural octavo unites three very distinct languages. It now features a new SATB choral arrangement, a descant for the fifth verse (in all three languages) and a C instrument part.

Rufino Zaragoza, OFM:
Franciscan Brother Rufino explores the richness of multicultural communities and lectures on the joys and complexities of intercultural worship. He is the heart and soul behind OCP’s many Vietnamese worship resources.

Nurtured in Franciscan spirituality for more than thirty years, Brother Rufino Zaragoza is one the leading experts on liturgical inculturation in the Church today. He publishes articles on Vietnamese Catholicism, pioneers multilingual song collections in English, Spanish and Vietnamese and prepares worship resources drawing from each of those traditions. Born and raised in Los Angeles, he has a bachelor’s in church music from Mount St. Mary’s College and a master’s in theological studies from the Franciscan School of Theology, Berkeley, California.

Rufino has published popular collections of instrumental music (A Sacred Place, Longing Heart/Con Tim Khát Khao), liturgical music (Love's Radiant Light) and has served as a consultant for OCP’s Vietnamese worship resources, including Thánh Ca Dan Chúa, the first Vietnamese Catholic hymnal published in the US, Chon Ngài and Chung Loi Tan Tung. In collaboration with Viatorian Father Mark Francis, Rufino was a contributor to Liturgy in a Culturally Diverse Community, the revised document on multicultural liturgies published by FDLC. His song "Sacred Creation" is included in OCP’s Our Common Home, a collection of songs inspired by Pope Francis’s Laudato Si’ encyclical.

When in the US, Rufino offers workshops and retreats to parish choirs as well as presentations and liturgical preparation for diocesan and national gatherings. He is an excellent resource for multicultural parish communities.
