Is this the place?:
Via dei Corridori 28
I’ll have to drop in if and when I am again in Rome. Thanks.
I like the Freudian slip: “market forces are till at work” Get it? Till? As in, cash till…. :)
Lovely chasuble, but I could personally and truly use that cheese myself!
Is that cheese or Penicillin?
On traditional mass books selling better: you don’t need books when you’re making it up as you go along.
Apparently, according to a very old Hungarian priest, if you eat a slice of toast with blue cheese and a clove of garlic crushed on top of it every day you will never get sick.
Our Latin Mass community ordered a full set (all the colors) of uber pricey vestments “of the highest quality fabric” from some place in Rome almost a year ago. We’re still waiting. Hopefully we’ll have rose vestments in time from the third week in Advent this year.
Oh dear Father Z, a set of those would be nice, what does the TMSM have in its coffers? Not that much I am sure! lol
You should get a nice cassock for the “pastoral year” seminarian at my parish who does everything in an ugly polyester alb with no cincture. Even if the little servers are in cassock and surplice as is normal in this parish, the seminarian insists on alb with no cincture. I have no idea what is the meaning of this.
“a glimpse of some cheese ”
My day is complete.
“Even though we have apparently now moved into a time when nothing can be beautiful again in the liturgy and we are entirely focused on cars with at least 100k miles, market forces are till at work in Rome.”
One thing which emerged from the interview of the Holy Father in America was that he is a man of very good taste when it comes to music. He loves the Furtwängler interpretations of Beethoven and Wagner. Damian Thompson was delighted to find that the Pope’s knowledge of classical music was so detailed that Pope Francis that in Damian Thompson’s words, the Pope could well host BBC3’s Building a Library. He also has good taste in art and literature. He has great affection for the poetry of Gerard Manley Hopkins, SJ and the German poet Friedrich Hölderlin. Likewise, in the realm of the visual arts, he has great esteem for Caravaggio. So, he has good taste in music, literature, and art. He is a cultured man. Why does this not extend to the liturgy?
And I thought the British had cornered the market in Mouldy Cheese :)
APX, that trick of the toast with blue cheese and garlic works because no one will come near enough to you to pass on whatever germs they are carrying. :)
Pardon my disagreeableness, but I don’t care for that chasuble. The rounded square corners remind me too much of a dinner-table placemat and the gold trim forming a rectangle in the middle is gratuitous.
While in Rome about 3 weeks ago, I noticed the great majority of the churches do not yet have the scudi on their facade. Perhaps the store is encouraging the Catholic Faithful to buy one and bring it to their “church of choice”! :)
In re caseum (?):
I wanted to see what one of those looked like above a door. Fortunately, His Eminence Cardinal O’Malley of Boston has a photo on his blog:
This is his titular church in Rome, and the photo is from 2008, with the coat of arms of Pope Benedict XVI and Cardinal O’Malley.

Poets have been mysteriously silent on the subject of cheese. (GKC)
But that particular chunk is surely worth at least a limerick or a haiku or something, don’t you think?
I’m always surprised Chesterton said that, given that he of all people was into things like nursery rhymes and so many of those feature cheese prominently, don’t they? The cheese stands alone, the cheese stands alone, hi ho the dairy-o…
