In ‘Fluffya’
Una festa santa e divertentissima

Today is the feast-day of St Pius of Pietrelcina and so Annunciation of the Blessed Virgin Mary Church in South Philadelphia, real-life Rocky country, had a festival. I understand some of his relics were there but I didn’t get to see them. Had a glass of wine, penne pasta and cake and sat with the locals outside listening to oldies. The Catholic sacramental principle and belief in the communion of saints are alive among ethnic Italians and I’m sure Padre Pio was smiling from heaven as the kiddies enjoyed the moon-bounce.
Pray, hope and do not worry.
