Catholic Culture Meme

Working through the memes... This is one that Julie D. tagged us with a week or so ago.

Name a Catholic book that you want to share so much that you keep giving away copies:
I can't think of one that we've given over and over again, but recently we gave friends copies of The Bad Catholic's Guide to Good Living and Swimming with Scapulars.

Name a work of religious art you'd like to live with:

This is a statue of Mary from Matyas Templom (St. Matthais Church) in Budapest.

Name your favorite Catholic artist:
Fra Angelico

Name a work of Catholic fiction which has penetrated your real life:
Brideshead Revisited, by Evelyn Waugh

Name your favorite Catholic Musicians - male & female:
Musicians who are Catholic or who make Catholic music? Here's a bunch of Catholic guys I like: Easter Rising, a group of seminarians (including my brothers, natch) who play some rockin' Irish fare.

Name your favorite musical:
Kiss Me, Kate

Name a punch line that always makes you laugh:
"What'd you do with that, stick it in your snood?" -- from White Christmas, OR
"It goes to eleven!" -- from This is Spinal Tap

If you like Fra Angelico, pick up John Saward's The Beauty of Holiness and the Holiness of Beauty, a meditation on the three transcendentals via the works of the said artist.

And Brideshead changed my life, forever.
