“He [Satan] will set up a counter-Church which will be the ape of the Church because, he the devil, is the ape of God. It will have all the notes and characteristics of the Church, but in reverse and emptied of its divine content. It will be a mystical body of the anti-Christ that will in all externals resemble the mystical body of Christ. In desperate need for God, whom he nevertheless refuses to adore, modern man in his loneliness and frustration will hunger more and more for membership in a community that will give him enlargement of purpose, but at the cost of losing himself in some vague collectivity.”
“Who is going to save our Church? Not our bishops, not our priests and religious. It is up to you, the people. You have the minds, the eyes, and the ears to save the Church. Your mission is to see that your priests act like priests, your bishops act like bishops.”
- Fulton Sheen

That way I have steady income I can plan on, and you wind up regularly on my list of benefactors for whom I pray and for whom I periodically say Holy Mass.
In view of the rapidly changing challenges I now face, I would like to add more $10/month subscribers. Will you please help?

"But if, in any layman who is indeed imbued with literature, ignorance of the Latin language, which we can truly call the 'catholic' language, indicates a certain sluggishness in his love toward the Church, how much more fitting it is that each and every cleric should be adequately practiced and skilled in that language!" - Pius XI
"Let us realize that this remark of Cicero (Brutus 37, 140) can be in a certain way referred to [young lay people]: 'It is not so much a matter of distinction to know Latin as it is disgraceful not to know it.'" - St. John Paul II
Grant unto thy Church, we beseech Thee, O merciful God, that She, being gathered together by the Holy Ghost, may be in no wise troubled by attack from her foes. O God, who by sin art offended and by penance pacified, mercifully regard the prayers of Thy people making supplication unto Thee,and turn away the scourges of Thine anger which we deserve for our sins. Almighty and Everlasting God, in whose Hand are the power and the government of every realm: look down upon and help the Christian people that the heathen nations who trust in the fierceness of their own might may be crushed by the power of thine Arm. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, Thy Son, who liveth and reigneth with Thee in the unity of the Holy Ghost, God, world without end. R. Amen.

Very few people, when confronted with a bottle of anchovy syrup, say “sniff”. :)
Nonne liquamen istud re vera garum est? Numquam id gustavi ego, sed te commendante fortasse mox ausurus sum …
(Isn’t that sauce actually garum? I’ve never tried it but based on your recommendation, maybe soon I’ll will …)
Hmmm… the poverty in me thinks that bottle would make a nice container for herb-infused olive oil, with some garden or farm market-fresh sprigs. If you get more, you could get quite a collection of nice oils to use. No?
How does it compare to dissolving some anchovy paste in hot oil in the pan before tossing with the pasta?
Random Friar: Yes! And I make that sort of thing.
Flambeaux: You need to add some red pepper flakes and garlic to that. Oh great, now I’m hungry.
Garlic is always in there. Whether or not I use red pepper depends on my mood. :D
Yes… raw garlic and hot red pepper. I also use some chopped parsley.
Mmm…I know what I want for dinner tonight. Alas, it won’t happen. *sigh*
Every Christmas Eve we have linguine alle acciughe and pan fried smelts…mmmmmmmmmmm !
How much would you use for a family of four in say, pasta?
I get emotional whenever I realize my can of Mountain Dew is empty.
I checked the Amazon website-store for this item and it appears to be not available at the moment…
I do so love those stinky little fish and anything made from them! If I knew how to type Homer Simpson’s “yummy” sound I would. You’ll just have to use your imagination.
A subtle hint for more?
I think they’re out on Amazon, so alas, he is only able to reminisce, for now.
