Lex Cordis Caritas - The law of the heart is Love

by Bishop Thomas John Paprocki
The names of Mick Jagger and Keith Richards of the Rolling Stones do not usually come to mind when one thinks of prophets, but their 1969 song, You Can't Always Get What You Want, is certainly prophetic. Coming at the end of the decade, the song has been described as a reflection on three major themes of the 1960s: sex, politics and drugs. The key insight is in the line sung by Jagger, "No, you can't always get what you want, but if you try sometime, you just might find, you get what you need."
