Ecclesiam res et talia sermocinamur -

We talk about the Church, stuff, and such

The Shrine of the Holy Whapping has up the lyrics to "God Bless Our Pope," a wonderfully and blatantly Catholic hymn (as opposed to the aweful recycled Protestant mush that often gets played in church -- why is "A Mighty Fortress Is Our God" in the hymnal!? Leo X must spin in his grave). This reminded me of a spectacular site for such hymns, although their copy of "God Bless Our Pope" no longer plays. My favorite might be "I Am a Faithful Catholic," especially the ascerbic last verse:

If base it is to yield before
The persecutor's rod
Then baser far to side with those
Who insult the Church of God
Who insult the Church of God

You know...I kinda like "A Mighty Fortress is our God." For a Protestant hymn, I mean. it's a lot less wishy-washy than, oh, the St. Louis Jesuits...
