“I thought to put together heavy metal music and a Capucin friar was strange, to say the least.”

An Italian Capucin monk went to a Metallica concert 15 years ago and his life was forever changed. He is still a Capucin monk, only now he is also the lead singer in an Italian heavy metal band. The quote in the subject line is from one of his band-mates.

The monk says: “I am religious. I am a priest. But I don’t play to draw people closer to Christ, or the church, or to religion. I do it to convert people to life.”

Rock on, friar.

(Thanks for pointing to this, Ernie.)

    In other news, Marilyn Manson opened an Ecumenical Supply company–“not to draw people to the Church, but to open their eyes to a different way of dressing.”
