Kid President, St. Ignatius, Pope Francis and Corn Dogs

kidpresI couldn’t help but share this video with everyone. We showed it last night at our Sunday youth night and it literally got a roaring applause afterwards.

Again, I think it speaks to the spirituality in the air in our young people and even in our young adults–particularly the millennial generation. It is yet another video that is not necessarily Catholic in language but surely–Catholic in spirit.

You were made from love, to be love, to spread love.  – Kid President

Here is the first stanza of St. Ignatius’ famous First Principle and Foundation paraphrased by Jacqueline Bergan and Sr. Marie Schwan

Lord, my God
When your love spilled over into creation
You thought of me.
I am from Love, of Love, for Love.

So the answer is yes, Kid President–you’re pep talk resonates with my Catholic heart. And you are, indeed, speaking my language.

PS. I was thinking maybe you can give Pope Francis a call and we can set up a date for corn dogs and ice cream?

Anxiously awaiting your reply,

Jurell
