Circle the wagons and to the Alamo...

Meet this saint. He's Archbishop Angelo Bagnasco, known in Italy now as il nuovo Presidente of the CEI (the new president of the Italian Bishops Conference).

As a student in Rome while in the library one sometimes pages through the Italian newspapers. The photos are nice, but the goofy journalism is the usual dog-and-pony show.

Anyways, the Italian media has declared war on the new Pope, the new Cardinal Secretary of Sate as well as on this man, the new President of the Italian Bishops Conf. I guess it had to happen, but the lies and anti-Catholic bigotry that I read in the papers here now everyday makes me want to say: "If a battle has to be fought at the OK Corral, then let's rumble because the voice of the Church has a right to be heard."
