Summer leisure reading...


If you want to know the Faith, then just start to read this one from Tan Books and Publishers: The Catechism of the Council of Trent.

Godd recommendation!

Are you subbing for my guardian angel, by any chance? After the Vatican Post Office thing, this makes the second time you've helped me out this week! I've seldom been more grateful to spot a photo on a blog. I'm currently in the market for a copy of that catechism, but when I went to Leoniana this morning I didn't know exactly what I was looking for. So the nice man in the bookshop is ordering for me on spec a likely-looking title from his catalogue... and thanks to your pic I'll be able to recognise by sight whether it really is the one I want.

So, thanks! :D

Nice. It's expensive, but available at the Libreria Editrice Vaticana...

Libreria Editrice Vaticana is out of stock (or was on Saturday, anyway). The Leoniana finally supplied it this morning; they were supposed to have gotten it in on Saturday, but the supplier forgot to deliver... :)

Anyway, all's well that ends well. But I'm so glad I mailed that parcel home, when I did, because the sheer weight of this book is going to do unpleasantly penitential-type things to my luggage on the return journey, all right!

Nice! Leonina is great, and the place to go for Vatican gossip (the owner knows eeeeeverything!)

If you get this note let me know and perhaps we can meet for pranzo (salad?!) sometime this week...

Salad sounds good. :) I'll text-message you (I assume that's a cellphone number on your business card) as soon as my phone finds a signal again, and we can work something out. My days here are numbered, as you know...
