Great must be mentioned that The Beatles, particularly McCartney's song, "Let It Be" is truly a marian hymn which very possibly was inspired from McCartney's devout Irish Catholic mother. Paul's mother died while he was a young teenager. The Blessed Mary's fiat, "let it be done unto thee according to thy word"...resonates throughout Paul's song with the lyrics: in my hour of darkness Mother Mary comes to me speaking words of wisdom...Let It Be. Now that's a song worth posting on this site.


I think it's important for people to see the human side of Catholics, especially Catholics who are faithful to the Magisterium, because it helps people understand that we're not alien entities and that virtue doesn't mean a life without joy or fun."


We often tell kids we know that living a serious Christian and Catholic life brings (as Christ told us) the greatest joy - that Christ exists not only to help us to eternal life with God, but to help us live the best and wonderfullest life we can on Earth.

A lotta kids actually get that. But sadly, there aren't many adults telling them that these days.

Christianity is serious, but dudn't have to be somber at all.

Good, clean fun is part and parcel of the Christian life - and it's always been my experience that Christians (of all sorts) actually enjoy life more.



I love the Beatles. Too bad, however, that the two who were Catholics--Paul and George--abandoned the faith decades ago. George embraced Eastern religions and after his death his cremated remains were deposited in the Ganges River. Paul has always been my favorite and, in my opinion, the most talented of the 4. I am sure his saintly mum is praying for her son from her place in Purgatory or Heaven. Paul could sure use a big dose of the True Faith to get him through this last leg of his life.


Yay! Beatles! Abbey Road is my favorite album. Maybe some people didn't know that.

Yoko...she destroyed the Beatles.

Pius V

Well, if the Devil set out to make these guys famous, he didn't do so well . . .

"Preserving the old ways . . ."

When I was a teenager, my father thought George Harrison's song My Sweet Lord was about Jesus. I can still remember his surprise when I explained that Harrison was actually a Krishna devotee :o)


"When I find myself in times of trouble Mother Mary comes to me..."


And then say no to Her.
