Album Notes
The book, “King of the Golden City” became an interest while I was finishing up the recording of the album “Keep Your Eyes on the Beloved”. It was a story that I had read to my children and I found so much meaning in it for myself, that I truly fell in love with both the story and Dilecta. I was Dilecta at different times in my life and I could relate to her and her trials and growth. After I decided to record “King of the Golden City”, I began writing, but didn’t finish, a new song. It was only later that I realized this song was born of the book and thus as I recorded the book I was able to finish writing the song, “Dilecta”. Recording the book gave me such an opportunity to be immersed more deeply into its story. I then saw that this book had even more depth to it and I knew there was such a great beauty in this beautiful Catholic story that I wanted to share it with everyone. I hope you enjoy the story as much as I do, and I hope that it deepens your spiritual life as you walk on your journey to some day come to see the “King of the Golden City”. Faith, Hope and Love, Simonetta

I want to thank Dennis Colby and Garry Loizzo for working together with me on this project. You are such truly good people and so enjoyable to be around. Thank you to all those who continue to pray for the Saint Philomena Foundation and my projects. I am so grateful for the much prayer that went on during the recordings. It is what sustains us at those very challenging times. To my children and my husband, thanks for being excited with me about this book. Your joy about the story as it progressed was a great encouragement to me. Lenny, as always, I love you and thank you for working right along by my side with me. Tricia, I love you and thank you for the original artwork. What a treasure it was for me to have that…”Aciu”.

Mother Mary Loyola, thank you for writing such a wonderful story.
