IN THE WILD! Clement XIV goes to ROME!

Fr. Hunwicke was kind enough to remind us all that 28 May is the anniversary of the election to the See of Peter of the great Pope Clement XIV, Papa Ganganelli.

I noted in a comment there that one person obtained a stein because the mugs didn’t hold enough tea.  “Well!”, quoth I, “he doesn’t know about the MEGA MUG!”

Yes, there is now a 20 oz version.

There are now mugs in 10, 15, and 20 oz., and the 22 oz. stein.

There are other items as well.


And speaking of Papa Ganganelli, before I left Rome I visited the Pope’s tomb in Ss. Dodici Apostoli.


He is, of course, conferring his blessing on the mugs.

As you can see.


This is really the monument for him.  His tomb is tucked into the corner to the left of the monument, which frames the sacristy door.

The Pope is pleased.
