Catechism in Song

Many years ago, when my children were still very young, we discovered the excellent DVD published by Pro Multis Media of Sing-along Songs for Catholic Children.  Not only did my children love the music on this video, I loved it, and that's saying a lot, because a lot of children's music tends to act like a vegetable grater on my nerves.  I think there may be a ring in hell where Barney's…
