When in Rome: Shine Your Shoes

After a shine and before a shine.

My pastor, Fr. Pat Lannan, gave me these old shoes of his in 1997.

I still wear them and this is the before and after of yesterday's shoe shine!

Please pray for the repose of his soul (1941 - 1998).


  1. Italians are big on shiny shoes. All the hotels have those little disposable shoe shine pads. Last March we took our boys to Rome. When we showed our 11 year old how well those worked, he shined all our shoes every night.

  2. They look the same
    Terrible shoeshine
