From a reader:

I thought you might like to know Yahoo Babelfish‘s translation of "la Fraternité sacerdotale Saint-Pie X":

"the sacerdotal Fraternity Saint-Magpie X". 

Slavishly literal translations, indeed….


Wait’ll Vincenzo gets hold of this!

On another note, I had mentioned that the excommunications were like a fishbone stuck in the throat of the SSPXers.  Perhaps the Holy Father should have lifted them today?

Some sharing options...

    According to the Wikipedia:
    “The European Magpie is the only non-mammal known to be able to recognise itself in a mirror.”

    What that means to the present discussion, can only imagine…. :)
