About Annie Karto:
As a Catholic singer-songwriter and inspirational speaker, Annie Karto hopes to stir the flame in the Catholic Church through the power of God’s great gift of music. The healing mercy of God in the heart of her music ministry, along with the singing of the beautiful sacraments of the Church, and honoring the Blessed Mother Mary.
Many years ago, after an encounter with Divine Mercy that left me in tears, I headed to confession the next day. My penance from the priest was to spread the message of Divine Mercy for the rest of my life. From this experience came my first recorded song, “Divine Mercy Flood My Soul.”
Six CDs and 25 years in ministry later, I have fulfilled a dream of mine in recording a CD titled, “A Gift for Our Lady” in honor of Our Lady of Fatima. I had not really planned on recording and releasing this project in the Centennial Year of Fatima, but by God’s providence, it coincided with this special year.
Growing up in a large Catholic family, all eight of us children were consecrated to Our Lady in the womb of our mother. She taught and fostered in us all a love and devotion to Mary. I was born in the Marian Year of 1954 so it is no surprise that I have been devoted to her for many years.
What is surprising as is the case for many of us, are all the ups and downs in life that make up our journey through this life. How comforting to know we have a heavenly Mother who accompanies us along the way.
