You never know what you will find in Catholic Italy: in 2005 I walked over this floor in Ancona.
The heart of Pope Pius II is located here behind the main altar of the cathedral.
He died there while waiting for the kings of Europe to unite and respond to his call to send relief to to Greece which had been overrun by the Turks.

French scouts in the Vatican.
"We feel greatly consoled when We see this same French people increasing its zeal and affection for the Holy See in proportion as that See is abandoned - We should rather say warred with upon earth."
-Pope Leo XIII (Au Milieu des Sollicitudes).

If they asked me to direct their Rome program I would first request to hear Mass and then accept in a heartbeat.

Roman Basilica of Santa Maria Sopra Minerva.
The Dominicans know how to do it.
Have two such little signs made and put them on either side of the sink in your sacristy.
A good reminder that there is a difference between the sacred and the profane.

Christopher Columbus called it the "sect of Mahomet." He was not a big fan.
Meanwhile we have killed our own future with contraception and abortion and now the easy and cheap remedy is immigration of Third World whomever.
Make abortion illegal and save what's left of our civilization before it is too late.
