View from the choir

I am a Catholic layperson and Secular Franciscan with a sense of humor. After years in the back pew watching, I have moved into the choir. It's nice to see faces instead of the backs of heads. But I still maintain God has a sense of humor - and that we are created in God's image.

Hugo Ball - Catholic Dada Catholic

Born a Catholic, Huga Ball drifted from the faith even as he continued to search for meaning in the insanity surrounding World War I. He helped to found the Dada movement in 1916, and was noted for his "sound poems."

He disagreed with the direction of the movement and separated from it. He returned to Catholicism, and began to study saints of the early Church. He died in 1927.
