Fr. Claude Burns AKA Fr. Pontifex - Main Event

Fr. Claude Burns is also known as Fr. Pontifex, a rapper whose frankness, orthodoxy and engaging style has made him a rising star in the ever-emerging genre of Catholic hip-hop.  In his first full length release, “Ordained,” Fr. Pontifex’s songs range from the autobiographical to the catechetical.  However, Fr. Pontifex’s style, which is simultaneously engaging and disarming, is something that is difficult to dismiss.
