We moderns reject aristocracy, insisting that our rulers reflect our ignorant selves, whereas 19th-century workmen dressed elegantly even while digging ditches. The more casual our elites appear, the more we like them, which frees them further from doing anything uncomfortable.

Promoting Holy Scripture for youth: A Polish priest takes an unusual route
Poland (kath.net) A polish chaplain is making an appeal for bible reading in an unusual way. [While wearing a cassock or in regular street clothes, the chaplain cuts a rather secular figure.] With a rap song which has already received a hundred thousand hits, the priest is attempting to bring youth in the the church. Jakub Bartczak is the chaplain in the Lower Saxon city of Breslau and sings a song for the bible. "Read Holy Scripture, man." The news broadcaster TVN 24 explained about Bartczak, that he had already been performing music before he entered seminary. In the mean time his own Diocese has also put the video on their homepage.
