  1. Arieh says:

    “I’ll give the liberals an offer they can’t refuse”

  2. A good-bye brush to Cardinal Mahoney clearing the way for the elevation of Coredeleone to Los Angeles….

  3. Diane says:

    “And, if the French Bishops don’t like it – so what?”

  4. Stu says:

    “You want a piece of me?!”

  5. Augustine says:

    I’ve never seen the Godfather movies, but this looks like a scene out of them.

  6. Proof, if proof were needed, that Pope Benedict has ‘gone native’.

  7. John Hudson says:

    So I told that Kung, “Fuggidaboudid”.

  8. Andy says:

    The French again? They will sleep with the fishes!

  9. Christine says:

    You never call me Godfather.

  10. Ray from MN says:

    That’s a spicy meatball!

  11. Edgar says:

    The french bishops are leaving? “So be it”

  12. Nick says:

    I was thinking ‘meatball’ of Godfather too…

    “That was a good-a sand-a-wich”

  13. Thomas says:

    Bravo, Vincenzo!

  14. tj says:

    Good photography,Vincenzo. When I enlarged the picture, it looks like you even managed to put Fr. Z behind the drivers seat. That Bugatti better be his Rome car. Doesn’t look like it would survive Minnesota and Wisconsin winters.

  15. Vincenzo says:

    “When I enlarged the picture, it looks like you even managed to put Fr. Z behind the drivers seat.”


    Thanks. There’s a larger color image of Father Z behind the wheel of the Bugatti in the comments area of an earlier blog that he posted on March 9: “About that Ferrari…”


  16. Tim Ferguson says:

    When did Pope Benedict learn to imitate Shecky Greene?

  17. Humboldt says:

    :)¡Ha, Ha, Ha! ¡Fantastic! It wasn’t Vicenzo who said this, it was Michael Corleone to his brother Fredo, in Godfather II in Las Vegas. Of course Michael Corleone sent to kill his brother after their mother’s death. Does the similarity stop there?

  18. Al says:

    Papa Benedetto to Fr. Z at the Wednesday Papal Audience:

    “Someday – and that day may never come –
    I’ll call upon you to do a service for me.
    But until that day, accept this MOTO PROPIO
    expanding the use of the Tridentine Liturgy
    as gift on this the day of the
    anniversary of my ordination.”

  19. Vincenzo: Could you make smaller links? The long links goof up the side bar.

  20. Vincenzo says:

    Certainly. I’ll use another server from now on.

  21. Beth v. says:

    Whatsamatta you?

  22. Diane says:

    Vincenzo: Thanks for the good laugh. I love it!

  23. Norman Lee says:

    “Mahoney, you’ve got your understanding of the Liturgy all wrong”

  24. Alex says:

    That’s my new background! I love it!

  25. Joseph from Canada says:

    “Mahoney, vone more verd outta you and it’z a smack ‘upzide ze head!”

  26. Maureen says:

    “When I ask for bratwurst, I don’t mean Wisconsin bratwurst. Gimme the good stuff from Zinzinnati!”
