Video: Saint John Paul II Sings “Dynamite.” You’re Welcome


JPII’s words from a Catholic University speech are set to a popular pop song

Although it was made two years ago, you may not have seen this video the first time around. It was the first in a series by Catholic Memes called "Autotune the Church." And who better to begin with than St. John Paul II? The words used here are from a speech he delivered in 1979 to students at Catholic University of America in Washington, D.C. The tune is "Dynamite," a song by English recording artist Taio Cruz, which became the singer's second number-one single and topped the charts in over five countries. As catchy as the tune is in both versions, this video is certainly more edifying that the one made of the original song.
