A Musical Respite

I’m waiting at the airport for my sister who has come into town for a week. The fruit of the second joyful mystery is fraternal charity. We’ll have lots of fun.

Meanwhile, I’m listening to this.


My favorite Marian chant and the oldest Marian prayer in existence.

Also, help me decided… I’m considering theme music for the podcast. It was suggested to me that I use a recording by a US military band as they are not copyrighted if the song they’re playing is in the public domain. I had narrowed it down to The Liberty Bell March by Sousa but then thought we’d sound too much like Monty Python (not necessarily a bad thing).

Look, it can’t be all anti-antipope and faggotry rants all the time. Sometimes you just need to listen to some chant and help me pick a theme.

Our Lady of LaSalette, pray for us!
