Veritatis Splendor

"Keep your eyes fixed upon Jesus, who inspires and perfects our faith" --Hebrews 12:2

Pope Benedict XVI before our Lord

And only where God is seen does life truly begin. Only when we meet the living God in Christ do we know what life is. We are not some casual and meaningless product of evolution.
Each of us is the result of a thought of God.
Each of us is willed,
each of us is loved,
each of us is necessary.
There is nothing more beautiful than to be surprised by the Gospel, by the encounter with Christ. There is nothing more beautiful than to know Him and to speak to others of our friendship with Him.
~Pope Benedict XVI, Homily April 24th, 2005

Il Carnevale in Italia!

Those Italians, now THEY know how to have a good time on Mardi Gras (well, "Carnevale season" lasts a lot longer than just one day, for starters!)

la battaglia delle arance (The Battle of the Oranges)

I just hope none of my beloved blood oranges were killed in the fight.

UPDATE: Link fixed (for now?) A fantastic (and musical!) video of the Ivrea fights can be seen here!
