Tom’s collection, The Fire Within the Night, contains songs appropriate for various seasons including Advent, Christmas, Lent and Easter. A variety of his compositions are included in OCP missals and hymnals. His song “Ashes” offers this message of renewal, “We rise again from ashes, from the good we’ve failed to do/ We rise again from ashes, to create ourselves anew . . . Give our stumblings direction, give our vision wider view/ Of an offering of ashes – an offering to You.”
