Music Video “The Way” Goes Viral
INTERNATIONAL | APOSTOLATE | NEWS
Vocational initiative strikes a chord on the Internet.

Why Not Priest band
The five-member band of Legionary brothers behind the song "The Way."

January 12, 2009. Rome, Italy.  One year ago, a team of Legionary brothers launched a web site called “Why Not Priest?” to foster vocational awareness and to offer resources for discernment.

This past December, they published a music video of a song entitled “The Way,” telling the story of a young man’s vocational journey. The music video alternates between shots of a five-member Legionary band playing in a studio and on a rooftop with St Peter’s dome in the background, and a young man – an Italian Regnum Christi co-worker – walking through various landscapes—from city streets to beaches to wooded paths—as he searches for “the way” of his own calling.

The video, published on the Why Not Priest? site and also on YouTube, has attracted over 10,000

YouTube views since its creation. In marketing terms, it has gone “viral,” spreading from one person to another as a resource worth sharing.

The lyrics and the music to “The Way” were written by Br Gabriel Lewis, LC.

The Way

In a lonely field I walked one morning in the rising sun
Everything was still and silent; a prayer was in my heart. I wondered
“In other lands beyond these hills, beyond my little world
How can I bring your message, and bear your light?”
Then the winds came, and the pouring rain, and I was swept away,
And your quiet voice spoke in my heart, “Just follow… I’ll show you the way.”

A path now lay before my feet and stretched beyond my sight,
And I didn’t know the days, the years, or what would lie ahead.
A running stream beneath a towering mountain, flowers, thorns, an endless journey.

Every step I took I had you there at my side.
Then the day came, when he called your name, and led you to his side
And I heard a voice speak in my heart.

Don’t stand there looking at the sky, don’t let these moments pass you by,
A tired hungry world is waiting for you.
The path is long but have no fear, rise up stand tall and dry your tears,
I’ll be right here at your side. Always.

Though the road was long we journeyed on, we followed in your footsteps,
You taught us how to find our way, and how to hear your voice.

But the day was growing older and the Sun began to hide,
And we were tired and we feared the coming night…
Then the storm came, we were all alone. You seemed so far away,
And we didn’t know where to turn…

And Thomas said, “How can we know the way?”
We don’t know where you’re going. Won’t you stay?
Can’t you see? It’s too much for me…
 “Don’t be afraid. You already know the way.”

Don’t stand there looking at the sky, don’t let these moments pass you by,
A tired hungry world is waiting for you.
The path is long but have no fear, rise up stand tall and dry your tears,
I’ll be right here at your side.

I’ll be right here at your side. You know the way.
