The language of patriotism

I’ve recently been complaining that Americans don’t know how to express their patriotic sentiments, so they talk nonsense about “freedom” instead.  There are happy exceptions, such as the following from a song I heard at church yesterday:

We pray for our Mother,
the Church upon earth,
And bless, Holy Mary,
the land of our birth.
Ave, Ave, Ave, Maria! Ave, Ave, Ave, Maria!
