Some of you may have noticed that this Top Catholic Songs website was offline or erratic for a few hours on Thursday 1/6/22.  I was attempting to switch hosting to my home-based Synology Disk Station DS1513+ (an NAS – network attached storage unit). It did not go well. The Intel Atom Dual Core 2.13 GHz processor with only 4 GB of RAM cannot handle the demands of this Drupal 6 CMS (content management system).

So I switched back to SiteGround, a hosting company that has made the decision to soon end PHP version 5.6 service. They say that...

The creation narrative speaks of God making a lesser light to rule the night and a greater light to rule the day.  Then, as if almost an afterthought, the author of Genesis adds, "He also made the stars." 

We may not know all of God's purposes of the stars (are...

People are often surprised to learn that the world population will peak and begin to decline by the year 2100 (U.N. projection).  Our Catholic teachings on sexuality and life are quite robust. Here's a student film (short, silent and for a 'Film 101' class so it's not fancy) we have commandeered to be part of our propaganda machine, most importantly by laying our music over top of it.  Original film, before we stole it, was called "The Gene Pool".  Now we call it after the song underneath it, "The Catholic Church Is Good".

If you hadn't seen our lurking about these last few months, we are a band that is doing a parody art project by taking Chinese Communist Party propaganda songs and transforming them into Catholic anthems.  Under Chinese law, none of the tracks we've redeemed are copyrighted but, believe it or not, some have rights reserved in the USA.  We haven't had any issues save for one so far.  And unfortunately it hit us on our first release thus slowing our rollout.  The good news, however, is that after more than one attempt, more than one video on the same song, and more than one communication with BMG music (the copyright holder to a song called "No Communist Party, No New China"), we now have agreement that our rendition with accompanying lyric video is fair use parody...

I wrote this song in the Spring of 2020, shortly after everything opened back up after the initial shut down. Being cut off from Mass was terrifying for me. I recognized a temptation, however small it was, to go after something other than God--something I could easily wrap my hands, my head, and maybe even my heart around--to take my mind off the fact that I couldn't have the Eucharist. I knew that I couldn't do that, though, because nothing else could satisfy the way He does. I chose Love when that was scary, hard, and even emotionally painful with everything else going on at the same time.

Later, this song ended up taking on another meaning when at the end of 2020 I ultimately had to make the choice between enjoying the company of a friend I'd grown up with, and really...
