Singer Andrea Bocelli
Says Catholic Faith is the “Reason for Life”
Journalist Colm Flynn recently interviewed Andrea Bocelli how his Catholic faith influences his work and his personal life.
Bocelli was born with congenital glaucoma,
causing blindness at age 12.
The singer explains that he never expected his success,
and attributes it to a “grand design.”
Bocelli, who performed for three popes,
later explains his long-held passion for his Catholic faith.
“For me, I can say [my Catholic faith] is the reason for life.
Because life, even if it lasts 100 years,
is so insignificant when you compare it to eternity.
If life did not exist–an eternal life–life after life–
then everything would lose all meaning."
Flynn then asks, “I read once a quote from you that said,
‘Everyone has a destiny, but destiny is God’.
What did you mean by that?”
“Whoever puts his life in the hands of the one who created it, who wants him, desires and loves him, puts their life in good hands.”
