LUDUS DIE CATHOLICO PREFACE:
The motivation for this mixtape is as follows:
At some point I stepped back and realized how die-hard some people are for their favorite sports teams and the players on those teams.
They'll pay expensive prices for tickets and concessions while sometimes being forced to tolerate bad weather while shouting at players who can't really hear you. At times, the outing seems to produce this short-lived, momentary happiness. Players get paid win or lose. ..and YOU the fan.. get (for the most part) nothing.
Point being.. those same people (in my life) judge me for being a die-hard Catholic.. ironic, right?
If people were even half as excited about what Christ did for them and does for them as they were their favorite team's season or stats.. they'd understand what it's like to share in an actual long-lasting, dynasty-style (for the sake of the sports reference) victory.
This mixtape is an expression of what it looks like when a Catholic treats everyday in their faith as if it were #GAMEDAY.
Player or Fan: ON THIS TEAM WE'RE IN THIS TOGETHER! VICTORY IS OURS! THE GLORY IS HIS! AMEN?!
If this doesn't get you hyped - I don't know what will.
