The Wexford Carol performed by Alison Krauss and Yo-Yo Ma

Here’s the beautiful 12th century Irish Christmas carol beautifully sung by Alison Krauss. I just wish Mary’s “guide,” Saint Joseph, was named. At Wiki, someone has written the song’s history, the lyrics in English and Gaelic, and numerous recording artists. “With Mary holy, we should pray “To God with love, this Christmas Day…” You may get […]

‘I am the light of the world’

John 9 was today’s Gospel at the Roman Catholic Masses. Every single time I hear it or read it, I become a weepy mess. I weep because the young man cured of blindness fearlessly proclaims the truth. I weep because he’s humble and the model for critical thinkers. But I also weep because I think […]

The live Host

Many of my friends (and I) are distressed because Vice President Joe Biden took Holy Communion at Cardinal Dolan’s Palm Sunday Mass. Prior to Election Day 2012, I wrote about the gravity of this sacrilege over @ WND. Now that it’s Holy Week, please consider scientific proof that someone is alive in the Holy Eucharist. […]
