The Collegio Papio in Ascona, Switzerland...




It's been a great pleasure these past days to stay as a guest at this famous old papal college, now a middle and high school. The two story courtyard in the Lombard style (1585-1602) is magnificent to wake up to and to stay in a room which is hundreds of years old and which so many generations of fine clergymen have lived in is a source of great joy and edification. Thanks, Don Moore!

"palaestra" - that's a great word and a solemn inscription. too bad we don't see the spirit of such an inscription lived in our schools today.
