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

An Italian tongue-twister

So I'm currently in the midst of studying furiously for my Italian finals, so I'm being pretty quiet online... but I thought I'd share this Italian alternative to "how much wood would a woodchuck chuck..." that was presented in our online workbook:

Trentatré Trentini entrarono a Trento tutti e trentatré trotterellando su trentatré trattori trainati da treni.

Try saying that three times fast!

A (very) rough translation:
Thirty-three Trentini all entered Trento (a town) and thirty-thirty waddling (?) on thirty-three tractors towed by trains.

Hmmm... Well it must make sense in Italian. :)
