So there is a song by Hozier called “Take Me to Church.”
If you were to take all of the fruits of our utilitarian, hedonistic society and run them through a juicer; you would get the lyrics of this song.
Not surprisingly then, it doesn’t take a trained ear to recognize how this song runs counter to a Christian (specifically Catholic) worldview. And no, we aren’t a bunch of puritans.
The sensual pleasures of this life can be and are a good, but in the Christian worldview they certainly don’t define what is good and they have limits as they are a lower good. For example, part of the reason affairs are wrong is because fidelity is a higher good than sexual pleasure. But I digress this post is called “Good Things About the Song ‘Take me to Church’.”
So let’s reflect on what is good.
Well, it ends after about 4 minutes, and that seems immensely better than 5 minutes.
Yup, that’s all I got.
