    If the Portugese Wikipedia may be relied upon, the motto of the family above the door of Palazzo del Bufalo alle Fratte at No. 3, Via del Bufalo: ‘with the wild, wild’ (or whatever one’s preferred rendering of ‘ ferus’ is – e.g., the intrauterine Ismael is so described by the Angel of the Lord in Genesis 16:12: “Hic erit ferus homo”).

    Venerator Sti Lot – Thank you for the translation. Google was of no help to me.

    Read the book Anti-apostle 1029. 1029 was the number of communist plants in the seminaries starting after Bolshevik revolution. At the end of the book they comment if they can induce enough liberal thinking in seminaries, then communist plants were no longer be necessary. British historian (not a Catholic), did a study on Free Masonry. His conclusion was Free Masonry is all about the destruction of the Catholic church. *On a side note Mormons are free masons on steroids. All the Mormon founders were FM who got too powerful in NY.

    My pleasure!

    Thinking about the structure of this motto, the Old English riddle in the Exeter Book came to mind, which includes (in Dr. Aaron Hostetter’s translation of Number 65) “I haven’t bitten a man, unless he bites me first— ” (I think the answer is usually supposed to be ‘a raw onion’).

    After which, St. Matthew 5:7 also occurred to me: “Beati misericordes : quoniam ipsi misericordiam consequentur.”


    Thank you for the recommendation – new to me! I see it is available scanned twice in the Internet Archive under the title AA-1025 The Memoirs Of An Anti-Apostle with the author’s name given as Marie Carré (with one scan for whatever reason difficult to enlarge for old eyes…).
