Hannah was messing around with a rock star game on Barbie World.com this morning when she said "Mom this is a perfect song about God!"
I felt a little cynical that Mattel could compose the "perfect" song about God, much less that such a song was the background track to "So You Wanna Be A Rock Star!"
My cynicism vanished over the next few minutes as Hannah kept exclaiming, "That's so right!" and "That's just how God works!" after each and ever lyric.
I was shocked listen to the lyrics closely and hear that Hannah's take was true.
"I feel connected . . . protected....
like your standing right with me all the time.
You're near me. You hear me.
And everything else is gonna be alright!"
A happy little girl song that so expresses what it means to be a Catholic in Communion with God.
If you don't believe me, listen to it yourself. See any obvious references to the Eucharist and the Divine Intimacy of Catholic life?
Life is just more fun when there is a future Nun in your house! I don't know how many "Jesus is the real boyfriend" pop songs that Hannie and I will be bopping around to in the future, but I hope it will be many.
