King of Glory:

This video was uploaded onto Youtube four years ago, but recently it became virally active again, passing around Mama’s internet circle of friends. Usually, Stephen Colbert’s shtick doesn’t float my boat. Here, he performs an interpretive dance of the well-known Christmas song: “King of Glory.”

Chance has it last weekend, our recessional song for the first Sunday in advent was “King of Glory.” A lethargic, abbreviated version that barely reaches the second verse before our choir calls quits.

As the first few lines were sung, Mama loses it completely, and starts giggling. I look over at her confused (because it’s a serious song).

Dadoo: “Huh?”

Mama: “I’m never going to see this song in the same light again!”

Dadoo: “Huh?”

Mama: “Remember the Colbert skit. It’s the same song.”

Dadoo: “Oh yeah. Our’s much more subdued.”

I guess we could use a little more energy during the Church’s New Evangelization Era.
