POM71: Sister Kay Kay “Bitter Waters”

Sister Kay Kay, SSS, is a Servant of the Blessed Sacrament in Waterville,
Maine. Growing up in Florence, Arizona, she was influenced by country
Gospel (Roy Acuff), Spanish devotional hymns, Gregorian chant and
blues (Billie Holiday). Although country and blues were frowned upon in
the convent, she used them privately to express insights from St. John of
the Cross’ “Spiritual Canticle” and other writings. She recorded “To the
Edge of Ecstasy” and “On the Wings of Love” . Her latest effort was
“American Family Snapshots”, an EP based on Pope Francis’ Apostolic
Letter “Joy of the Family”. At age 81, she continues to compose songs
and to sing them in “my Gravel Gertie voice”, occasionally posting them
on her SongU website.
