For years, my YouTube channel has quietly been subscribed to one of the most talented Catholic video guys on the planet: Fr. Johannes M. Schwarz. He says he’s “not professional,” just enjoys it. This hobby of his, however, has gained my attention.
Many of Father’s videos are in German, since he lives in Liechtenstein (you know, that super-tiny country near Switzerland and Austria?), but there are some goodies in English, too. I’ll feature both types in this post.
Check out his YouTube channel, which is a piggy bank of pop culture spoofs. Some highlights:
- Transformers – The Catholic Version
- Not Twitter but a Clever Critter
- Harry Potter / Moral Virtue
- Coca Cola Spoof – The Christ Side of Life
- Star Wars Alternative – In hoc signo vinces
- The apple incident – Original sin
- James Bond intro – Catholic Priest
- Catholic nun commercial
Father Johannes has released a DVD on the Mass and, while in German, I still enjoyed poking through it. (But I hear it’s a masterpiece.) Can you believe…it begins with a priest talking about beer? Check it out here.
Currently, Father is working with a Greek animator to produce a 300-minute Catholic catechism – Oh Mein Gott, to be released in English, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, French and Polish. To me, this looks like a barrel of fun. Here’s a German clip:
How blessed are we to have priests around the world, using their talents for God’s glory? I’ve already spotlighted Fr. Stan Fortuna, CFR, Fr. Rob Galea and Fr. Stephen Cuyos, MSC on this blog. Do you know any other priests ‘under-the-radar’ who have big talents?
