Our New Day

In this episode of The Commons, Sarah Hart performs and discusses her song for Easter, "Our New Day." Sarah wrote "Our New Day" in 2020, during the coronavirus pandemic when people were unable to gather in churches on Easter. She was reminded of the Apostles, similarly isolated and afraid in the upper room, longing for the new day which began with the Resurrection. The uptempo song beautifully expresses the joy that Peter felt when he ran from that upper room to the risen Christ, the joy that we anticipate and participate in every year at Easter.


The Commons is a series of unplugged interviews with the top Catholic recording artists. These are candid interviews and intimate performances by the top contemporary Catholic musicians.
