Fr. Pontifex: Poetry, music and film at the service of the New Evangelization

2014-06-06

From the time that we enter until the time that we pass,
From the first breath we take until the very last,
Life is a battle with many twists and turns,
Unanswered questions and many lessons learned.

This is how New Evangelization sounds thanks to American priest Fr. Claude Burns, AKA Fr. Pontifex.

He started rapping at the age of 17, and became a priest when he was 30. Since then, he feels called "to bring the Gospel outside the walls, thru poetry, music, and film.”

Fr. Pontifex has two albums: Ordained, and The Symphonic and The Static. The last one focuses on the joys and hardships of life.

One of his most celebrated songs is 'Count The Cost,' a reflection on love and sacrifice. It features compelling lyrics and images.

He is not only a music composer and parish priest in Indiana. Fr. Claude Burns is also the spiritual guide of Spirit Juice Studios, a faith-based design and production house.

Fr. Pontifex is currently working on his next album, titled 'The Invincibles.' With it, he hopes to continue incorporating the New Evangelization into modern culture.
