No Garbage Post!

The other day I forgot to hit PUBLISH!  Grrrr…

Il Monsignore Illustrissimo e Reverendissimo Presidente delle Strade would have been disappointed in me.  I mean… I post a lot of garbage, but… well…

These old “no dumping” signs are all over the center of Rome.  I enjoy them immensely.


26 May 1717.  300 years to the day

Among other, 26 May is my anniversary of ordination and the feast day of St. Philip Neri.

I hope I won’t be fined 10 scudi.

    “No dumpling?” What’s that got to do with anything? Ehh. Too early in the morning for me… ;-)

    Dear Father,

    I wish you a happy and joyful anniversary. To recall your sacerdotal ordination at the hands of St. John Paul the Great must be a great source of happiness and consolation.

    You are an excellent man – one of letters, arts, and sciences. But you seeking the Heart of our Lord, your website, your exhortations to us to go to confession, your ministry, you edify and lift God’s people. It is right and necessary for us to glorify and thank God for you and your ministry.

    May you enjoy many more years as a priest of our Lord Jesus Christ!
