We miss you, Papa

In honor of Pope Benedict’s abdication of the Holy See, I wanted to share a cultural token of his amazing visit to Great Britain in 2010. To accompany Benedict’s visit, a contemporary pop music band called Ooberfüse wrote a song about the human thirst for justice and love that marvelously captures some of the core themes of B16’s three encyclicals. The band sees its mission as “infusing the increasingly moribund traditions of western pop with fresh vigour.”

Any pop culture icon-band that thinks things like that is worth taking note of, in my book.

Take a few minutes to listen and thank God for Benedict, even as you pray for him:
