Areviderci sottana!

I couldn't make it to Rome this week with my friends (sniff, sniff, tear, tear) but at least my cassocks are there. My good priest-brothers were in need of this distinct clerical garb for their trip to the Eternal City so they borrowed mine.

I just watched that for the first time last weekend. Very good movie!

So good of you to lend your garb. Now go grab a couple of tissues, take a deep breath...and pray that your priest brethren have those cassocks dry-cleaned when they are back in the USA...After all, it would be cruel to return your garb if had little reminder of good meals they had without you. You know, veal scallopine splatters, fresh-basil-tomato sauce smears...

There, there. Chin up, old chap. Just think of the stories your cassocks will tell! Fabulous tales! Transforming lore!

No need to hide your face in this photo. We are sure you have grown up to be a fine looking fellow. And if not fine, well then quite passable.

I should amend that last coment to "I am fine"

and then I should have said: "So, why are you asking?"

Padre, I'm disturbed that your priest buddies don't have their own cassocks. There's an idea.....wouldn't that make a wonderful "Welcome back to America" gift for the lot of them?

Yes...yes, it would.

And you do qualify for the clergy discount. I'm just sayin'....
