Happy Anniversary Papa Ganganelli!

Everyone, make plans to party.  Today is the anniversary of the elevation of His Holiness Pope Clement XIV to the See of Peter in 1769.  His family name is Ganganelli.

One good way to celebrate the glorious event of his election would be to order some Papa Ganganelli Swag!

As a matter of fact, there is an fairly recent addition to the Clement XIV items.  There is now available a “mega mug” which holds, not 17… not 18… not 19… but 20 whole ounces!

To give you an idea of the size… here is the 20 oz. version next to the regular size.  (I gave my last Clement mug to The Great Roman™ last week, so here’s the splendid Benedict XIV edition.)


Enjoy in your new Clement XVI mug some….


When you are overcome with emotion at the thought of Clement XIV, of happy memory, and of his prudent decisions for the good of our Holy Mother the Church, such his suppression of the Jesuits, your thoughts surely turn to Mystic Monk Coffee… if they don’t turn first to Veuve Cliquot… but I digress.  YES… to Mystic Monk Coffee!  Think of the wonderful evenings with friends you can spend while talking about the excellent deeds of Papa Ganganelli.

These pleasant evenings with friends can be yours.  So can these beautiful Papa Ganganelli mugs and shirts!

Don’t suppress your urge for that great mug of Mystic Monk Coffee!  That would be … jesuitical!   You don’t want to be jesuitical do you?  No, of course you don’t.

Meanwhile… before I left Rome I visited the Pope’s tomb in Ss. Dodici Apostoli.


As you can see, he is conferring his blessing on the mugs.
