So there's a fella' out there who is currently a member of Miles Jesu (Miles Jesu (Latin for Soldier of Jesus) is a form of consecrated life in the Church for the laity, known as an Ecclesial Family of Consecrated Life, whose purpose is "to instill Catholic ideals and goals in the world to further the Kingdom of Christ, making Him the Center of all human life"), and one of his personal evangelistic efforts is to make Catholic Rap. That's right, Catholic Rap.

And you know what? It's actually really good!

Here's a song to whet the pallet: 53 Beads on a String.

All of the tracks from all of his albums are available for download at his site,, but to get to them you have to go through a pop-up where he asks for a donation. You don't have to give one to get the song, but he has dedicated his life to serving Christ and donations are what keep him doing what he does. I've exchanged a few e-mails with him, and he's a top-notch guy. Do check him out.

    'Art, like morality, consists in drawing the line somewhere.' This made me smile so much. What is the world w/o Chesterton.. *-*

    Sorry! It lacks beauty. It's as banal as much of the utility musc that we have been subjected to for over the last 40 years.

    Truth & beauty go hand in hand. Beauty is the honey which makes the medicine of Truth (obedience) go down easy. So where is the beauty in this?

    I find this stuff sterile and imitative of a culture which no longer recognizes beauty.
