Happy Birthday “Super Mom”

September 8th, 2009, by Fr. Shawn P. Tunink

In honor of the birthday of our Blessed Mother today and the upcoming birthday of the famous Matty Molnar, I thought this video to be a fitting tribute. This video was recorded live at the Mundelein Seminary coffee house night on May 5th, 2005. Matty was tragically killed in a car accident the following September 15th, so I believe that this video represents the last public performance of this famous song that Matty wrote in honor of Mary.

For some reason the camera wanted to focus on me way too much, but at any rate, that’s me singing off key on backup vocals (if you can call it that), former seminarian and now holy husband and man of God Ben Beier on drums, and Fr. Tien Tran on bass. This was a great night at the seminary. I’ll try to post some more videos of the event if people are interested.

Here’s to the Blessed Mother and Matty. Happy Birthday to you both.

    Fr. Shawn,

    Thank you for posting this. Any chance I will ever be able to get the 2005 Coffee House DVD?
