My kids know I’m a big Bruce Springsteen fan, so I was pleased when my daughter Laura gave me his latest album, “Wrecking Ball.” It’s terrific. Several songs fortify the Boss’s reputation as the greatest Catholic poet of our time. My favorite is “We Are Alive.”
We are alive
Oh, and though we lie alone here in the dark
Our souls will rise to carry the fire and light the spark
To fight shoulder to shoulder and heart to heart.
