Take Me To Church

On a Sunday morning, it’s not exactly what it seems.

It is, in fact, a bit of brilliance from an Irish singer- songwriter in a video that has so much to say.  A powerful statement from a 24 year old.

In a pop culture that seems to focus on the superficial, this one gives me hope for a brighter, more enlightened future.

“When the soul of a man is born in this country there are nets flung at it to hold it back from flight. You talk to me of nationality, language, religion. I shall try to fly by those nets.” 

James Joyce. A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man.
