not about Lent: 7 secular love songs I love

It is the first Friday of the Great Lent, and I feel like everyone in the Catholic and spiritually-inclined blogosphere has it covered. Click on my labels 'lent' or 'fasting' to your right if you are curious about what I have written in the past. I don't really feel inspired to post yet another lentil soup recipe on the blog. I probably will post recipes soon. But not today.
I could get all spiritual about the songs above. Didn't Chesterton say “The most extraordinary thing in the world is an ordinary man and an ordinary woman and their ordinary children.” The first few songs reflect that theme. And what about the prostitution undertones of the last two songs? Well, have you read Ezekiel? So, 'Roxanne' and 'Come What May' are totally spiritual, symbolizing God's love for us, His beloved, yet sinful people!....no?....maybe?...probably not, I just like these songs. Have an awesome Lent!

  1. This isn't related to your secular love songs post (I like those 80s Police songs!), but I wondered if you saw Deacon Andrew's beautiful post a Word on Fire: http://wordonfire.org/WoF-Blog/WoF-Blog/March-2014/Ukraine-The-Icon-Corner-of-the-World.aspx

    God bless!

  2. I've been a lurker but I am finally commenting (or maybe I've commented before) because my husband and I have recently been attending a small Byzantine Divine Liturgy. We're enjoying the small community and the liturgy.
