Sometimes you don’t know you need something until it’s presented to you.
Here’s one of those things: there’s an account on Twitter called “Augustine of Hiphop.” And it’s as amazing as it sounds!
“Love God, love neighbor, yo — that’s my motto,” reads the account’s profile description. “Rhymes so good they work ex opere operato.”
The Twitter username is a play on the full name often used to refer to the saint, Augustine of Hippo (he was the bishop of the North African city Hippo). “Hippo” is changed to “Hiphop” and the account mostly tweets short raps about Catholic theology. It currently has more than 17,000 followers.
Here are a few of its best rhymes:
The account also sometimes retweets rhymes from other users. Here are a few examples:
