some personal views for Catholic readers
You're not sailing to Italy in that boat, are you!
Yay! Are you going to Genoa perchance?
Genoa - Siri gives it away
Methinks you are going to Genoa. As to the pictures I suggest Cardinal Siri, Monsignor Marini (current Papal MC) and the church of Sant'Agostino. The first one I'm not sure of - anything to do with Lepanto?Enjoy your break!
Father will be riding at the back of the swan.
Genoa, I guess...
I have no idea about most of them but am especially curious about the first. The last one isn't the Little House of Loreto is it?
I'm guessing somewhere around St. Peters
Genoa. The bottom one is San Matteo; I think the other two pics of ?John Paul I and Marini are in the Cathedral. Can't see the one of Luciani very clearly - not sure whether he's there as pope or patriarch of Venice. If latter, trick photo to make you think the ship is in Venice?! Was the ship made for a film or is it some Genoese celebration?I spent a few hours in Genoa once before boarding the ferry to Barcelona. Don't think it runs any more - Cangeru line!Have a great trip, Father!
Looks like Genoa, dear Father, where I hope myself some day to go.
pedellos -sorry the spell checkecker grabbed the word too fast- sorry.
Have a blessed time in Genoa, Father!
YES GENOAThe ship was useed in a pre-war water bourne Eucharistic procession, for the Blessed Sacrament.
Ah, Siri, not Luciani! But they do look quite similar, I think.Apologies, Father, for suggesting you may have been trying to trick us!
Father:I'd love to hear more about the 'pre-war water bourne Eucharistic procession' sometime, if you have the time.God bless!
Yes, more on the ship please, Father.Was it built specially for the Procession? Does it still exist (and if so, could you borrow it...)? How often was it used?At first I thought you were off to Venice, with the ship being the Doge's barge for the ceremonial "wedding" of the City to the Sea, but Cardinal Siri and Mgr Marini gave it away as Genoa. And of course the ship is flying the Cross of St George, ancient symbol of Genoa (and borrowed by others...)Hope you had a good time out there.
